49ers give Atlanta a peek into how beat the Saints?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think the wind was a huge factor tonight. We are a DOME team. I think we play well enough again to beat the Falcons. But our offense needs to get it together. The D played well tonight but the ...

I think the wind was a huge factor tonight. We are a DOME team. I think we play well enough again to beat the Falcons. But our offense needs to get it together. The D played well tonight but the Offense didnt give them the help they are used to. We need to clean up the offense and play better pass coverage on the Falcons.

NO DOUBT .... the wind was killer, and also the reason we won it in the fourth quarter. Meachem was remarkedly absent. He needs to step up.

Ok, WhoDats, its time for some Jim Mora trivia. Fill in the blanks:
W_ _ _ _ _ - C_ _ _ _ _ - S _ _ _ _ _ _

Except for the part about losing Reggie, What an outstanding time to be a Saints fan. How sweet it is to be reversed from our old role, of beating the 49ers on the field, and having Joe Montana drive em down the field for a 16-14 win.

I remember when we found creative ways to lose.
Great teams find ways to win.

This is a great team. I'll say it, and I aint scared. Does anybody remember what I said last year, and I wasnt scared?

It will be tough, but good to have home field advantage against those oversized birds.

I can also see a few weak points on the Offense, i think Drew just had a bad second game, Bush is a question mark right now and Gay is most likely out for that game..
So opinions on how well we're going to do in this short week coming into the dome with a Falcons team full of Bloated heads after kicking down an Arizona Team that was already piss poor..
their d is not as good as 49ers and it is hard to win on the road, but this will be a hard test

3-4 defense seems to be our nemesis.
Willis is an absolute stud leader.
They covered our WR's well and got in Brees's face.

To me this game looked more like the "finesse" Saints of a few years ago.

Great resolve to eek out a victory - that's what champions do.

I'm sure there is a "superbowl hangover", they're just finding ways to win.

Gut check time for the O and D lines.

We won a close game on the road against a team many not only picked to win the West, but to go to the SB. We didn't play well, the run defense/tackling was not good, but the D/Special Teams came through with the turnovers. Offense seemed inconsistent, like in the first game vs. 'Queens. I'm glad we're playing the Falcs at home while we're still in early-season playing shape (I know they are, too).

We saw some ugly road wins last year, right (Washington, Miami)? I honestly don't see this team going 13-0, but I know the offense will settle in and GW will produce a D that will keep us in some games. I still like our chances to get back to the BOWL.

I've said for awhile that the dirty birds were gaining talent and would be hard to count out any time soon. They are a fierce divisional opponent and always play us hard.
That being said they haven't proven anything on the field yet. They are another talented team that will have our coaches and players working extra hard evaluating film. Even though we have been less than glorious we are still finding a way to win the close games. That's is why we are still the undefeated World Champion New Orleans Saints.
We look forward to welcoming Atlanta to the Superdome. This is the game we start clicking on all cylinders.
btw I'm glad you're not one of those smack talking trolls. We love talking Saints football with other folks.
