Two weeks is a long time to wait for the biggest game of your life. Which is why this report from PFT should be of concern to Saints fans.
According to their source, everybody at the Senior Bowl is talking about how Peyton Manning dismantled the impenetrable Jets defense no other quarterback anywhere ever besides Ryan Fitzpatrick, David Garrard, and Chad Henne was able to take down. And so people are now suggesting the Saints pretty much dump everything they've been doing to get them to this point and go into the Super Bowl with TWO game plans to counter all The Awesome:
...there's a theory in Mobile that the Saints should consider developing two separate game plans: One for the first half, and one of the second half. The concern, however, is that Saints players would interpret the unconventional approach as panic.
They could also interpret it as maybe over thinking it a bit and, oh yea, moronic.
The Saints finished the season ranked number one in points scored by a defense, third in interceptions with 26, recorded 35 sacks (two more than the Jets), and forced 15 fumbles, recovering 13 of them. Not to mention they have Master Kreese as their defensive coordinator.
Yes, Manning is pretty much the best quarterback on the planet right now. But the Saints D can handle their own. No need to take advice from bored coaches watching Tim Tebow botch snaps in Mobile and change things up too drastically.
Or they can just let the panic settle in and go the Lloyd Bridges route.

Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was on a Nashville radio program earlier today, and told the show that he wants his defense to blow up Peyton Manning.
“Here’s the deal. When you put too much of that type of worry on a warrior’s mind, he doesn’t play all out. If it happens, it happens. And the only thing you’d like for me to say is that if it happens you hope he doesn’t get back up and play again.”
We all remember how the Saints D nearly decapitated Brett Favre in the NFC Championship game last Sunday (and the Deanna Favre reaction shot after every hit). So we know they're more than capable of putting a hurting on any quarterback. So this could get serious. I would suggest Peyton Manning just play the entire Super Bowl with a fake mustache and speak in an Italian accent throughout the entire game when he does those audibles of his. "Tight-ah right-ah! Blue-forty eight-ah! I'mma gonna make-a spicy meat-a ball specially for you, eh!? Ah shattapa yo face!"
The Saints players will never know the difference!
