3-2 is likely, but 2-3 won't suprise me.

3-2, unless our defensive backfield wakes up and our DE's don't fall for every fake in the book, then 4-1

vick could be a HUGE problem this week!!!

the falcons are starting to run an inside option play that has been killing teams. the saints D-line needs to clog the middle and the linebackers need to play outside.

im not too worried about vick throwing...i am worried about dunn and vick running wild.

i think we beat ATL this week...lose to carolina and then beat tampa bay

I see 3-2. I think we lose to Atlanta and Carolina, and turn it around in Tampa Bay.

We are a young team still putting it all together, Atl and Car are veteran teams whose time is right now. Our best is still yet to come.

Beat Atlanta and loose to Carolina? Is that just a hunch? Because Atlanta is great and Carolina, who was supposed to be good, looks like dog poopy! I think we run the table!

If we're going to lose to any of the three teams it'll be Atlanta. Their D is looking very good, and their run O is awesome. That said, if we make Vick try to win it with his arm we have a legit shot.

Carolina is only going to be a problem if Smith returns (which is our luck). If he's out the D (see secondary) has less to worry about and can keep the game close.

Tampa Bay... make Simms win this one. I don't see why we can't match the last couple weeks, three ints on him. We win the turnover game we win.

With luck we could go 5-0 (not happening), but 4-1 is not totally unreasonable. Call me optimistic, but I like the direction this team is headed (and the way our divisional foes are headed also).

Absolutely! We are actually a team on the rise, while Tampa Bay and Carolina are teams showing signs of decay.

To hell with the experts......I think we've got a shot at beating Atlanta! Our D-line & LB's have played well against the run. If they can bring that energy to a sold out dome on Monday night, there's a good chance for win #3. We always play Atlanta tough & I really don't see Vick as the type of QB that can beat us in the air. If we can contain him & Dunn, it could be an upset. The dome will be rocking like the Dome Patrol days!
