Very true.
For recent evidence watch Matty in the pocket after the KV hit. Completely unnerved, maybe got 1-2 reads before he threw it into the stands prematurely.

The only way the failclowns will beat the Saints is if we help them with sloppy play, penalties, turnovers, missed tackles, etc.
I would normally agree, but watch the footage of Bailey in that game. The ball was purposely kept away from him because the quarterback knew be is an ALL PRO player. If this were just some average run of the mill player I would agree, but this is Champ freakin Bailey!!! 12 straight appearances in the pro bowl, and a 7x all pro cornerback. This isn't just some old dude off the street we are talking about. In all fairness he did not get enough playing time in pre season. Definitely a better player than Baptiste or Dixon. Not sure what Sean saw in Dixon, but let's hope it pans out because be had a great player and gave him up on an unproven who is 6'0" and 195lbs with a grade of 4.85 in the draft, is a leaky tackler, very tight hipped, and recorded a poor 4.59 20yard shuttle time, which indicates very limited lateral agility. Also, he will most likely be moved to free safety when out doesn't pan out for him as a corner. Bailey had a 3.79 20yard shuttle just to put things into perspective.

17 years ago... And the reason Bailey didn't get any playing time was because he was battling injuries.

I'd rather a young healthy player who has shown potential over a past his prime injured one. QB's aren't scared when you're sitting on the bench...

Bailey didn't get to play. Geeze, but your right. Perhaps we should have done that with Vilma, and Sharper too? Hmmmm, would have been a very different team.

I've seen delusional fans before but this is ridiculous.

As long as the Saints don't become complacent. I am looking for our defense to be very tough and the offense to bust it open.

Re: The Atlanta Falcons aren't fazed by their recent struggles against the Saints

I for one am concerned about this game. Is it a make or break game? No. But if we lose this game we need to beat the bucs week 5 and start out 4-1. And the Bucs will need to start out 2-3 as I believe its us or them that wins the south. The division trends and the 2015 schedule being so winnable for us has me concerned that we need to sweep them two years straight here and they have followed our placement every year. If we sweep them next year then there is no way we finish below them. So I feel we need to pull off the sweep again or we better hope three south teams are in this year.

I'm just going to point out that we picked Vilma up when he was 26...
