There won't be much in this game that the New Orleans Saints haven't seen from Atlanta, and vice versa. The teams know each other very well and are bound to play a close game. With both teams playing at a high level, it is becoming one of the most recognizable rivalries league-wide.

This time around, the Saints are playing for a chance to clinch the NFC South championship for the second time in three seasons and the third time under Coach Sean Payton. A New Orleans victory would also keep intact that no team in NFC South history has won back-to-back division crowns.

Payton has had much success against the Falcons, going 9-2 against the Dirty Birds since becoming the Saints' coach in 2006, and New Orleans has taken five of the past six meetings. The Saints look to have an advantage because the game is being played on Monday night. The teams have played five times on "Monday Night Football," and the Saints are 4-1. This is the third consecutive season the teams are playing on "MNF."

Even the NFL is excited about showing this game on Monday night 'cause many of the other games have been a BUST. Thank goodness for Brees and company

This is for the NFC South title, I could not think of a better way to earn it than to beat the Falcons in the dome. The D has shown signs of life from time to time this year and I'm going to go out on a limb and say they have finally come togather and are playing the way we knew they can, our secondary is going to be dominate from here on out and the front 7 also, there is still a lot of football left to play and I feel they can get us there now. I've been on them for sometimes, even calling for their heads at time. We have many talented players but they were not playing up to their capability. Our run not only depends on our O, it's going to depend on the D to keep points off the board from good teams we are going to face on our run, if our O has a bad day I want to be able to count on the D to win it for us and if it has taken them this late in the year to get it togather, well I'm o.k. with that.

I have a bad feeling about this game.

If any of you say, "What's new?" I'll kick your azz.

The clowns are desperate and embarrassed. I don't like playing against teams like that. Someone better turn their boom boxes on 'crumble walls' outside their hotel Sunday night. I think an entire night of "Afternoon Delight" is necessary.

NO SMEGMA DEFENSE. Corners, PLEASE play on top of your man.
