I remember many years ago after a Hail Mary pass defeat by the dreaded and hated Falcoons having to walk all the way down from the nosebleed section amidst 40 or 50 Falcoon fans and having to listen to their BS for 15 minutes. I hope we destroy the Falcons and take them out of play off contention. After the game is over I hope the city of Atlanta burns to the ground.

Hard to put a label on how I feel about this game, I'll just say I feel confident that we can and will win it in the end. While the old adage, "on any given Sunday....." rings true, it usually doesn't apply to the foul-cons. I just wanna see Mattie Icemilk flat on his back gasping for air as one of our DB's goes into the endzone with a pick6.

I am not as worried about our DB's as you though. We know the Falcants game plan. RUN. I am worried more about our inability to stop the run. We are 17th against the run and that stat is skewed by how other teams have to pass to catch up. If we let them get there running game going and get balanced, then your worry about our DB will become true.
Matt Ryan isn't very accurate on medium to long passes so I'm not too worried about the DB's. The pass rush, however.....

We need to blitz their left side like their's no tomorrow. We need to get Jimmy and Marcus involved EARLY and run that bubble screen 'til we (they) puke.

It's definitely an important game and the fans will certainly be loud. I just can't worked up for it until gameday.

I just hope we don't over-blitz if it isn't effective. If our blitz is working like it did against the Bears, great. Otherwise just send 3 or 4 most of the time more often.

Is that all you remember? I remember both the good and the bad of this series:

- The terrible 62-7 beatdown the Saints took in Tulane Stadium. It was my first year as a ticket holder.

- Big Ben 1.
- Big Ben 2.

- The absolutely sweet 45-17 shellacking the Saints put on the Falcons in the Georgia Dome in 2003. By the end of the game, the Dome was only had WhoDats left.

- The game in Atlanta in 2006, Saints 31-13, that had Vick leaving the field
giving Atlanta fans the finger.

- The bitter battle in Atlanta in 2009 against Chris Redmond with a game where the Saints had their undefeated season challenged until the absolute end of the game with a Vilma interception.

- And just last year, in Atlanta, keeping the Falcons out of the winners circle for the division by beating them in the Georgia Dome 17-14.

I was in the stadium for each of these. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

But from an analytical standpoint, this isn't a much a rivalry as it looks. Check out the bottom of the series chart here:


Since the Sheriff, Drew Brews, moseyed into the Big Easy, the Saints are 8-2. Would be 9-1 except for Hartley. The Saints have beaten the Falcons 4 out of 5 years in Atlanta, and is one of only 4 teams to plunk losses on Ryan at home in his career (Green Bay, Philly, and Denver are the others).

It'll be close. But if the defense can shut down the running game, and not give up the big play, we still have superior offensive firepower and should go a long way to locking the division down.

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

I was at Joe Robbie/Sunlife/JLo Stadium watching the Patriots and Dolphins game go in to overtime and looked at the scoreboad to see that Saints/Falcons score in 2003 and took a picture of it.

The Patriots won with Brady hitting Troy Brown for an 80 yard touchdown. I think it was the first play of overtime.
