Falcons trying to be the Saints?

Ryan’s 68 yards passing on screens last season ranked 32nd in the NFL, and he had just 20 attempts. If the Falcons can get the ball more quickly in space to Jones -- their fastest receiver -- they can force defenses to spread out and limit the blitz.

Over the last couple of seasons all they have tried to do is be us this is nothing new. The Jaquizz Rodgers pick ( ala Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles) says Saints, and so does spending four picks on Julio Jones. What did it get them..... Everything on their team is aging. Micheal Turner, Tony Gonzalez. Anybody expecting them to take a step in the wrong direction like me?

Speaking of the screen game; they'll never be as good as we are!

As long as skid breeches is the one throwing the ball, they'll never be as effective as the Saints in their offense.

But it'll be interesting to see what Nolan is able to do with their D versus how Spags works out for the Saints. The Failclowns were as pathetic as the Saints with their pass rush, so it's interesting to see which DC will be able to improve their D more in regards to that dimension of the D. I did want either Spags or Nolan to be the new DC for the Saints and I'm happy that it was Spags because I think that he better suits what the Saints are all about as a D and as a team. Also, I thought that if they brought in Nolan, it would mean that the Saints would move into a 3-4 base defense, but that didn't happen in Atlanta, so that's another thing to watch for - can Nolan be an effective DC while having to play with a 4-3 base?

Still, I do think that the division title is going to be decided between the Saints and the Failclowns because I just don't believe in the progression of the Panties and Newton (while a really good QB, he's somewhat immature and the Pro Bowl game performance says a lot to me about what kind of a guy he is in the end). And Tampoon Bay is just not ready to be a contender any time soon, unless of course Freeman suddenly becomes a much better QB in almost all areas of his game.

You emulate the best if you want to be the best. The problem is they don't have the offensive genius or the talent that we do.

They have seen the best in their own division twice a year for the last 6 years, who can blame them.
