When you grew up, did you look at a lot of NFL games and with teams like the Steelers and where the game was much less pass-oriented, how did you look at it?

“I grew up in Austin, Texas in the early 1990’s. That was the Cowboy heyday. We were all Cowboys fans. We all watched the Cowboys. They seemed to have a healthy balance of one of the greatest running backs of all-time in Emmitt Smith, but then guys like Michael Irvin and Jay Novacek, (Alvin) Harper and others. I think you got a little bit of everything with those guys, a great defense…One of my favorite quarterbacks of all-time was Joe Montana, running the West Coast offense in those days. The film that I’ve seen…I have seen some actual games. You watch the whole game and you actually see the balance of run to pass. But if you just watch NFL Films, you’re just getting the highlights, so you’re getting a lot of passing highlights, the Bill Walsh system, the guys that ran that system, going back to Montana, (Steve) Young, (Brett) Favre, kind of that whole lineage of guys out in Green Bay.

Breaking the record is inevitable, whether it in this game or the next. Saints are playing to secure the South, and the Falcons are playing for bragging rights. IF the Falcons win, then Saints won't rest starters next week unless they have a guaranteed win on the board. I just don't see that happening against the Panthers because they can score points FAST.
