Keys to beating Atlanta week 1
 
Running the ball
Screen passes
Throwing more at Ben Watson and Lance Moore and less at Colston, falcons have him figured out.
Never throw at Witherspoon
Be on the lookout for seeing Julio Jones on defense(he was playoff game against Seattle).
Cover Roddy and Jones in falcons territory
Cover Jones in redzone and hope Ryan doesnt look at Gonzo or Roddy.
If we get off to another 7-10 point lead late lets not stall on offense , get conservative and play prevent defense. We have had a lousy habit of doing this stuff.

Payton/Brees/Thomas/Sproles are masters of the screens

We have too many weapons, with the Falcons secondary; somebody will always be open

With their O-Line trouble, hopefully Jordan/Hicks/Foster/whoever will get consistent pressure

I live in Atlanta ( I know ) and on their local sports radio show , they seem worried about their O Line ... Titans had 5 Sacks on Matt Ryan ... Without their Starting Linebackers in. I Say we Gear Jordan and Galette Up and Bring the Pressure Early and Often.

Something else to remember; they'll be seeing a different defensive scheme then they are used to. And you know Sean has a few offensive wrinkles he has yet to unveil

I fully expect us to kick their Junk all over the Dome ... People act like we are the Raiders and Such

Scoring at least one more point than Atlanta will help as well!

They had a 13-3 year with a vanilla schedule , replacement refs and the junior varsity Saints ... I find they won't be half as good as everyone is making them out to be

I don't want to put too much stock in those sacks because Roddy wasnt on the field. I've been saying a while Ryan is carried by his receivers. If Roddy was there I really don't know how that would have turned out. All three have not been playing at the same time all preseason.

Another outcome I hope is jets beating bucs. If bucs win that, then they are gonna be a big problem given how their home games look.

As of now the two games I'm concerned about are Atlanta and Miami.

Of the 5 O-Linemen, 3 of those are new starters for them. No way it wasn't the O-Line
