Saints-Falcons rivalry as strong as ever

Saints-Falcons rivalry as strong as ever

By CHARLES ODUM, AP Sports Writer
December 11, 2005
ATLANTA (AP) -- Poor records never have cooled the Saints-Falcons rivalry, so New Orleans receiver Joe Horn warns Atlanta's players not to expect anything but the normal intensity Monday night.

The Saints (3-9) have lost seven of their last eight games. The Falcons (7-5) are trying to move back into one of the NFC's six playoff spots. Atlanta's final three games are against playoff-caliber teams, but Horn says the Falcons know better than to overlook the Saints.

"I truly believe they know our game is going to be one of the hardest on their schedule this year," Horn said.

The teams have more in common than entering the league about the same time -- Atlanta in 1966, followed by New Orleans in 1967. They also share mostly inglorious histories.

The Saints had not won a playoff game until 2000. The Falcons still have never recorded back-to-back winning seasons, though two more wins this year will end that embarrassing 40-year streak of futility.

More often than not, at least one of the two teams in the NFL's longest Southern rivalry has been eliminated from playoff contention by December.

.. a win against the Falcons in Atlanta would be oh so sweet, on MNF especially... I despise Vick, and I would love to see Mr. Mafiosi pushing Vick around on a wheelchair again.. I prefer Lowe's anyway...

and as much as i like coach Mora Sr., his boy is a crybaby,, he has to have been adopted... I would...

hhmm...
"some people call me space cowboy...
..some people call me the reiper of looove..."

I like that

..anyway, Jim Mora Jr is the biggest crybaby in the NFL... he cries and whines on every single play on the sidelines.. I have yet to hear a half-time interview when he isn't complaining about refs not calling roughing the passer when someone as much as sneezes near Vick...

Yeah, putting Atlanta out the playoff race would almost salvage the season.

You know I'm torn, I want the Saints to win but if they do and salvage the season, as you say, does that mean we have to keep AB, Haslett and Carney?

I would appreciate the loss if the we have to keep that bunch.
