New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons a pivotal encounter once again
 
At Christmas time last year, Who Dat Nation was dealing with one of those good news-bad news moments facing our football Saints. The good news: The New Orleans Saints were rolling with a 12-3 record. They had just wiped out the Atlanta Falcons, 45-16, clinching the NFC South.

The guy wearing jersey No. 9 had set a record for the most passing yards in one season. On his final completion, Drew Brees threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles, giving him 307 yards for the game, 5,087 for the season, which was three yards more than the record Dan Marino set in 1984.

They were dancing on the table.

What about the bad news?

Well, there was now the possibility, the Saints, who had beaten the Falcons, 26-23, a month earlier, might have to defeat the Falcons three times in one season just to get to the Super Bowl.

The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees will have to play the Atlanta Falcons twice in the next month.

I watched the Curtis Lofton press video this morning. Made me laugh when they asked him about Roddy White. He said "Well, he better not come across the middle". Kick his arse, Curtis!

EDIT:

"With a quarterback like Brees, it's tough to make the Saints a playoff scratch. But, when you look at the defense, you wonder if Brees can make enough points to win another six games and maybe give his team a chance play on.''

"Getting to the playoffs with that defense would be the story of the year.''

You know it!

I have played with loudmouths like Shoddy White and hated them. i would not be suprised if Mr Lofton feels the same way about him...

White aint event he best WR on that team.

I think even the shape the Saints are in with the coaching staff shuffle and 2 injuries on offense, its still going to be the 1st REAL team the Falcons will encounter this season.

Which just shows you how easy their schedule is.
