METAIRIE, La. -- It just got real.

The New Orleans Saints can finally start preparing for a game that counts -- and itís a doozy. Week 1, on the road, against the division rival Atlanta Falcons.

The Saints will have more time to prepare for this matchup than almost any other opponent this season, with a bonus practice scheduled for Monday. But itís not like they need it from a scouting standpoint. They certainly donít need it from a motivational standpoint.

These teams know each other backwards and forwards, having battled for NFC South supremacy for the past six years, with mostly the same coaches, core players and systems in place.

Saints safety Rafael Bush, who almost joined the Falcons this offseason as a restricted free agent, came up with the perfect analogy on Friday.

ďWe play against these guys so much that itís like playing your little brother or your big brother,Ē said Bush, who is friends with Falcons safety William Moore, among others. ďYou know each other very well, so it comes down to whoís the most detailed team and who makes less mistakes. And thatís pretty much been the outcome of these games. You now last year [the Saintsí win in Week 1], it could have been a tip away from losing that game. So it comes down to those small things.Ē

The Failclowns are our red-headed little step-brother and we are going to give them yet another wedgie.

If we beat them 56-3, I will be mad because they made a field goal...I so hate that team from Georgia.
