Are you kidding me?!

Boldin was catching everything being thrown his way in the playoffs - he should've been the MVP.

Re: Has anyone heard?

Well maybe so. But if thats the case, he snuck up on people. I do not believe Flacco is going to live up to his contract.

Atl you're on our board we're not giving the falcons credit for anything. the leadership needs to come from Ryan or your defense. But if the latter, they have to start playing like a scary defense. You just got rid of a player who was one of the biggest problems for Brees on your team and now it will take a season or so before you will maintain that pass rush presence. Without Lewis Flacco would not have gotten to the sb it would have been Manning. Ryan doesnt have a Ray Lewis on his team who is the biggest defensive leader in the league. But its not only that the falcons are gonna have to go through us. Its easy to disect a dcoord for a circus act team and puppet head coach but how about look at his work more closely and see how the games were won and loss. Go look at the browns' stats defensively in 2010. Rob Ryan is gonna be a good hire of our at least for a season or so before its figured out and its going to make our team as good or better than 2011. And Atlanta better have what it takes to beat NE or go win in Lambeau because that is going to decide the NFC South winner. And they need to worry about the likes of Carolina and Tampa Bay who have played Atlanta tough in recent years. Cam has been trying to beat the falcons and three of four games he's outplayed Ryan. We are not afraid of a runningback who will have his carries reduced in Atlanta therefore making him rusty throughout the game. He was good in St.Louis because he was the offense. Just look at what happened to Ricky and Ronnie in Miami or Dwill in Carolina when their carries were reduced. The careers of the former are over and Carolina fans have figured out that there is nothing wrong with Dwill but that he is being rusted. Good luck with Stephen Jackson who has had some flaws in recent years and even older than Ronnie Brown and Dwill.

The falcons think the saints are that beatable. Personally I believe the saints biggest achilles heels are west coast road games, cold weather games against top notch defenses. If Dallas, Seattle, Detroit win their divisions then Dallas would have had to beat us in the sd, giving us an advantage in a rematch, Seattle we already would have gotten a test in reg season(like giants in their sb run), and lions are not that good enough to beat a team like us even in another dome which we do not struggle in. However falcons are vulnerable playing against two of those teams. They do not go to Seattle in the reg season they have them at home. Also, if Atlanta were to win division and beat Seattle in reg season Seattle very well could win their division and it would come back to haunt them. There is no good defense for a team who is too prepared. And a team at that who was good enough to win on the road against Washington and almost Atlanta with no game knowledge, imagine what they will do with game knowledge. As a saints fan I probably would want us to lose to Seattle if we can afford to just to use what we know against them in the playoffs. So in essence it doesnt look good for Atlanta next year knowing if they were to win the division they would have to play Seattle again very likely in the playoffs.

But we'll see, the saints offense is just that much more explosive I can't see us going down to Atlanta two years in a row when their passing game is predictable.

Outrageous? ... do you take great umbrage at my remarks as well? . Multipe examples? Pull up a list of SuperBowl Champion rosters and do a comparison on their coaching staffs/rosters to Atl's and see if you can spot the leadership characteristics & traits that set those teams apart from Atl, what made them winners and Atl not. It'd be a good exercise for you. It takes more than snappy catch-phrases, smart-ass remarks & youtube videos to be a leader.

"How about Roddy White? Matt Ryan?", ... dude, you're killing me! .

You still haven't proven to me that we have no leaders. What makes our leadership so weak?

One playoff win in 5yrs for a team with so much alleged talent, what more proof do you need? When the going gets tough, the Falcons fold like chairs, what else could it be on such a 'talented' squad?

Ever hear the expression, "An army of sheep led by a lion, is far more dangerous then an army of lions led by a sheep"? Well, that's what you got going on in Atlanta, an army of alleged lions being led by sheep.

It's why you guys are 'regular season champs', .

Dumb mistakes? Like the fumble. You don't ever look at the safetys before you know the ball is in your hands. Missed responsibilities? Stephen Nicholas had to cover those tight ends that were running free. Busted coverage? Stephen Nicholas again. Terrible tackling? Lack of pass rush?
