Tomorrow is the SuperBowl for the Falcons. They're going to try and bring EVERYTHING they ever had this season at us tomorrow night. They may suck, but this is the NFL and the Falcons have nothing to lose which makes them dangerous.

Perfect time to catch the division leader looking past them to the next game where the Saints could play for NFC division lead.

If that happens, I want all the people who will return here to scream their brains out about the organization "in decline" along with our QB, defense, end of the world, sky falling etc. - I want them to read this thread. Because we don't hear much from you (the "moonshiners", as it was).

It is indeed a great time, we have tons to be thankful for, win or lose tomorrow night... like I said, win OR LOSE against the Falcons.

If they think it's a post-season game, the Saints are a lock









BTW...good thread OP!!

"Yes", I actually saw a titled thread to that affect in one of the ATL forum links posted here on B&G. It's the only game left on the schedule that matters for them. .

I'm from the early 80s. This
isnt just "good old days," This is another dimension of time & space. This is the Twilight Zone.

I love this, and yes, Im enjoying football season. Are we a lock? No, we have a hell of a remaining schedule, but I wouldnt want it any other way.

... and I agree with this, also. Everyone our age, who has been following the Saints knows the records mean zero tomorrow night. (plus the factors you mentioned)

What astounds me is the posters who are saying tonight is going to be easy, or the Falcons have nothing , etc. HELLO? JETS? REMEMBER?
SAINTS/FALCONS --- footballs biggest rivalry outside Bears/Packers?
Where have you been since 1967?

If they were a .500 team this season I would agree with you. Any Given Sunday and all...

But they are not... They are horrible in every single aspect of their play. With the exception of Harry Douglas, every single player is playing like crap from Ryan to Jackson... Not just having 1 bad game but have strung together some horrible stats in the last 4 games. Their offense in the last 4 games has averaged 15 points, and 3 turn overs/game. Thats only 1 point better than Jacksonville.
They are giving up 33 points/game in the last 4 games.. Jacksonville is only given up 30/game.

So sorry.. I am not giving Atlanta any respect or even a spot of hope that they beat us by becoming good all of a sudden...

My only concern is which Saints land in Atlanta.

Hopefully we come out very run heavy to avoid any goofiness in the 1st quarter. Then we can take it from there.

Right there with you on this one Halo. I remember saying at work one day last year when it was becoming apparent how our season was going to go that if we only win two games all year I want them to be against the falcons. I'm sure they feel the same this year. .
