I actually thought that both teams were playing a "their offense can't hurt is if they are not on the field" strategy.

D made some plays, and should get better. Not saying they are for real yet. But, this was a good team they played.

That's why I roam the sidelines down here in the game day thread... Much more positive company,... I stepped into chat after the half and the next 10 replies had someone swapping their business so I jetted.

I think your coach and QB killed you, your coach gambling on 4th down YET AGAIN when everything in the universe is screaming at him not to do it, take the field goal and the onside kick, the Saints special teams under Greg McMahon are TERRIBLE, that was a slam dunk to win the game. I guess your coach does not watch any film of the teams he plays against.

Your coach behaves like a cheap Biloxi gambler with a gambling problem, pawning his mother's wedding ring. You give him a 4th down, he can't refuse, no matter how low the odds situationally. That's how people lose their houses and ruin marriages in the real world.

I knew we had won the game the minute it was first and goal from the 7. I said "they're gonna go for it on fourth and not get it" and high-fived the people in the seats around me, and I wound up being COMPLETELY RIGHT.

If you want to blamethat on a "conservative philosophy" then be my guest, your coach has a gambling problem and needs to seek professional help. You will not win a Super Bowl with him.

And the QB they call "Matty Ice" was anything but "ice" he seemed to be really frustrated and thwarted and ticked off, not able to figure anything out that was coming at him.

When Brees gets a rush, he stutter-steps around it, or sometimes even senses it coming from BEHIND and steps away. Matty Ice just seemed to be taking off running for his life. And throwing the ball away. Intentional grounding by not getting outside the hash marks is a pretty humiliating penalty in the modern NFL. Rookie quarterbacks routinely avoid this penalty as a matter of course. The Falcons should not be paying a lot of money for that kind of play.

Re: Saints Defense for Real?!

They played better than even those of us who thought they would be ok thought they would play.


Is out defense going to be ok this season? Too soon to tell. We did very well against a strong offense with a lot of weapons... I would say that after week for they can be rubber stamped as good, bad, or ok... We have some injuries to deal with and we need to see how we play against teams that can plan... By week 4 there will be three game tapes out there to study and plan with.

No, and don't ask for Joique Bell back either, ... dem boys looked damn good running in honolulu blue & silver today ... you know, you keep Reggie running north/south and between the tackles, he ain't half bad, .

The best part is that the league is an IDP based league with members of of an Atlanta Falcons site. I am facing the one of my biggest haters this first week and he has a pretty damned good team. I think I have the best in the league. So far our scores are far higher than all others this week.

I'll carry the Who Dat flag and win their league.
