Are the Falcons playing dirty? - From A Packer Fan

First I want to say that I do believe the Saints and the Packers are the best teams in the NFL right now...BAR NONE!! (one could starve on the difference)...You guys are a scary scoring machine with Drew at the helm.

On to my Question:

I wanted see what the Saints faithful think regarding the Atlanta Falcons shenanigans after the whistle during games...to get a view looking through Black and Gold glasses if you will...

During their game against the Pack there seemed to be quite a bit of shoving and even hits after the whistle on plays. The Falcons were trying to get Packer players to take retaliatory penalties.

When the Falcons played the Detroit Lions I noticed once again the frequent activity by the Falcons players after the whistle on plays throughout the game. Falcons players trying to get Lions players take retaliatory penalties for cheap shots.

Since you guys have more experience with the dirty birds being in the NFC south, do you all believe it is a conscious effort by Atlanta to play dirty?

Welcome!

And you seriously had to come on a Saints forum and ask what we think of anything related with the Falc'ants?

Hate is a strong word, but I absolutely despise the Falc'ants and their overrated quarterback.

And Mike Smith [coach] has told the media that he teaches his defensive backs to lead with the head and he can live with the 15 yard flags from playing "tough" defense [I believe that's how he put it]

I would assume the "whole" team is coached to play dirty...

EDIT:

Falcons coach Mike Smith said after the game he thought it was a legal hit and "that's the way we teach it."

WOW!!!!

I didn't know their head coach was preaching dirty hitting to his defense!

Even with these tactics they still can't seem to win any games...so i wonder why they suffer through all the 15 yd penalties just to lose anyway.

Tony Gonzales is the master of the 'bait', and I truly believe he is as responsible as anyone for the way the Failcones take a NBA size flop at every opportunity. I believe he is the engine behind their 'tactics'.

They can't beat you straight up. Their running back, Turner, is worth a damn, and that's all they've got, so they have to resort to 'tactics'. They suck. And they blow.

I tend to agree with your first statement, if we meet in the NFCC game that will be kinda like the old days of 49ers-Cowboys when that was really the SB.
On to the birds, I haven't seen anything specific recently but since I never watch their games unless they are playing us or god forbid in the playoffs, its hard for me to say if they really are dirty. But I don't call them the Foul-Cons for no reason.

If he showed up with "a pair" at a Failcone board he'd be the only one there with a pair...
