Lewis on Saints: 'You talkin' bout a dome team'

The Ravens and Saints square off in what's a pretty critical out-of-conference meatchup that might have "Super Bowl Preview" written all over it. Or not.

Remember, the Ravens are struggling a lot in pass coverage these days. And the Saints don't get the cover of their dome, which clearly means they're terrified to play football. If you're Ray Lewis anyway.

"You talkin about a dome team," Lewis said in a video on the Baltimore Sun. "And that says enough about itself. And I think bad weather plays a part no matter who's out there playing.

"If it's windy, it's snowy, throwing bcomes a problem unless youre certain team that can play in any type of weather. I just think overall bringong a dome team out of their into a crazy, loud envirorment like Baltimore can play a factor."

Of course weather pays a factor. Thats why Monday night's game isn't even being played at the Metrodome -- weather train-wrecked that stadium.

And yeah, the Saints would definitely be willing to say "weather is a pain." It's ALWAYS a pain, regardless of where you're playing, unless you're a team that's used to conditions.

So, yeah, Saints will probably not like the windchill and "not balmy" nature of Baltimore. But it's not their first rodeo in a cold-weather stadium. And something tells me they'll adjust.

Yeah, right.  Three scores, my a$$.  Ravens need this game more than the Saints do and the home field advantage will help them prevail.   And what, if anything, has Reggie Bush done this season besides return his Heisman trophy?

I'm going to enjoy seeing Ray Lewis getting handled by Carl Nicks and Jahri Evans.  I'm also going to love seeing him getting run over by Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas.  Good luck trying to keep up with Reggie Bush, and Jimmy Graham, Ray.  Saints by 3 scores.
