Bleacher Report's Week 17 Predictions....Blah....

This prediction by Matt Miller of Bleacher Report.....(Thanks, Matt, you motivate us, even if you are obviously delusional)




Monday, Game of the Week: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints



Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
When Atlanta Has the Ball:
Matt Ryan has an explosive group of players on his offense, all ready to attack the Saints' defense. The match-up of Julio Jones and Roddy White against the New Orleans defense will be worth the wait to Monday night.
Ryan has to stay clean and on his feet this week. When protected, Ryan is an elite quarterback. Will Svitek has played well at left tackle in replacing Sam Baker, which bodes well for Ryan. The Saints' aren't known for their great players on defense, but the scheme and execution are solid.
The Saints have to know the Falcons can and will move the ball. The game plan should focus on creating turnovers and hoping Brees can outscore Ryan.
When New Orleans Has the Ball:
This should be the week that Drew Brees passes Dan Marino as the all-time single-season passing leader. Impressive stuff, but meaningless if the Saints can't win this game to keep their chances for the No. 2 seed in the NFC alive. Brees would tell you records mean little in the here and now. It's all about winning.
Brees gets a ton of credit, as he should, but it's the run game of the Saints that impresses me most. Even with guards Carl Nicks and Jahri Evans having down seasons, the Saints are able to get into a rhythm running the ball and can steamroll a defense.
Atlanta will look to counter the run game with their speed on defense and their girth up front. Corey Peters and Jonathan Babineaux need monster games to hold off the interior of the Saints' line. If they can hold their ground, Curtis Lofton and Sean Weatherspoon have the speed and vision to make plays and shut down the Saints' offense.
One player who makes a world of difference is Brent Grimes. Without Grimes, the Falcons' defense is very different. They need him back this week.
Prediction: Atlanta 31, New Orleans 30
(Footnote by JoanieNTX: Matt Miller of Bleacher Report is obviously on a hallucinogen).

Life is too short to be miserable....make changes while you can!

Meaningless if we do not get No. 2 seed? He makes it sound like if we do not get the No. 2 seed our season is over LOL.

When describing the Falcons he uses EXPLOSIVE, ATTACK and ELITE.
When describing the Saints he uses SHOULD, IMPRESSIVE and MEANINGLESS.

Joanie, you send this article back to him next Tuesday.

I read it again, this MORON actually said "hoping Brees can outscore Ryan". Do you F'ing believe that?! This guy is a TURD of the highest order.

That's the worst pipe dream I've ever seen dreamed up. I mean, seriously...

LOL

Yes, besides being a moron, he is obviously a Saints hater...or a Fail-con fan. Either way, he is certainly not very intelligent, nor does he pay attention. Fail-cons, elite? ROFLOL!

We've OUTSCORED them by 110 points already this year! That's FIVE games worth of points! OMG, this is driving me NUTS.

Please provide the guy's email, Joanie. I couldn't find the link. You're probably a member and I am not. Now I know why... LOL

It wants my email address and I will not give it to such a pathetic online rag.

Look, OBJECTIVELY, it will be a close game and the Falcons can beat us. That's just a reality. However, to report/write it in the way he did is FANTASY. It ignores Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints, our record, our Points Fielded, I mean it ignores everything positive about the Saints and highlights everything that MAY turn out positive for the Falcons if they pull a fluke and beat us at home as hot as we are.

This guy, Matt Miller, has lost face with that garbage. If he ever had any.

This rag reports on the WWF, for God's sake!!!! Come on!!! LOL

If he writes that on a FanBoard, it's fan raving on a team, but to be published is totally out of line.

I agree, Alaska....I don't remember ever subscribing to Bleacher Report, but for some reason, they email it to me with these "catch" headlines that make me open and read! But I posted this thread just to let y'all know what's out there!
