Well, it's time to sound the ram horn, ride down into the valley and remind them who's at the top of the food chain in this division, in this conference, in this league...

If you were a close personal friend of mine this is what I would tell you. It's an uncomfortable truth because there is nothing that can be done in a draft, free agency, or on the practice field.

The Falcons have been out owned, GM'd, coached, and played by the Saints for a while now. It's systemic and until you change the head, the management, the product will continue in the same way. I've the same opinion of the Texans for the last few years.

On paper both teams pieces look right, but that doesn't translate to championship performance for either team.

Kubiack and Smith are good winning coaches but neither has next tier championship potential.

QBs were/are good but not great.

In a season when you were undefeated and we were stinking it up with out a head coach the Falcons couldn't pull it off.

Honestly when we play it's a big game, it's nearly a playoff game for both teams and Smith/Ryan preform similarly in both instances resulting in similar outcomes.

Nothing personal intended, we were in that boat for a while as well.

A lot of people are focusing on new players and healthy players for you this season, who I see is that your going to miss Gonzo. He was your goto scoring machine in a way that you have yet to replace.

Good luck Sunday.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

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.

Just like that we need 4-1.

i as i said tape is out on the defense and no adjustments made. happy with anything above a 16 rating. by the way why is it when turn overs are stressed. tackling suffers?

Great for them; they have won 4 in the last 17 games... Won't be the first time we've split with them and still won the division...
