Curtis Lofton: Saints donít see Falcons as rivals
 
1 Attachment(s)
The Saints were upset by the way the Falcons were ďclasslessĒ before the game and talked about the Falcons as their ďlittle brothersĒ who have come up short of victory in 11 of the last 13 meetings between the teams. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, meanwhile, found it impossible to credit the Saints with doing much of anything to get the victory. These are recognizable beats from some of the more heated rivalries.

So is the fact that the Saints claim not to view their relationship with the Falcons as a rivalry at all. Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton, who was on the Falcons until signing with the Saints this offseason, explains the difference between the two sides.

ďBeing here in this program, I feel like they see it as a divisional game, not a rivalry game,Ē Lofton said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Whatever you want to call it, thereís definitely some bad feelings between the two teams. That has made for some good games in recent years and sets the table for another good one in Atlanta on Thursday night. As long as those continue and the two teams remain in close competition in the NFC South, the semantics donít really matter much at all.

To be rivals the other team has to be atleast competitive

We are 11-2 against them since 2006, even if they win one, they pose no threat to us

I personally think Lofton and Shanle should shut their mouths. All the crap that spews from Roddy White's mouth motivates our team. Now all we are doing is giving them motivation to beat us tomorrow night.

Way to go - add more fuel to the fire in a must win game Saints.

I agree, why talk you know you're better then them. Keep your mouth shut and do your talking on the field.

Don't sweat it; there has been talk before games 13 times and we have won 11 of them...
