Now there, you go.. Which Brees Interception? When a receiver gets his hands on the ball, he owns the INT.

2 Seasons and your still sportin the same M.O.

Matt Ryans receivers didnt play volley ball.

Tips and fumbles can bounce in any direction, the recovery is luck.... Thats why you dont try to pick up a fumble and run with it pezo, you fall on it...

Last time I checked there isn't a stat for interceptions as far as WR's are concerned. So Brees takes the L for the pick. That was a defining moment in the game.

the pick in the end zone? LOL. Come on. It makes a lot more sense to bag on the defense for letting the Falcons run them up and down the field like it's 2012 or something. You score 34 points and lose, it's not on the offense.

I'm not a DJ. The metaphor missed it's mark. Like Brees.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

Since I have been so negative in most posts about this game ill avoid that here.

Good news is this should give SP and Ryan fuel to add to the fire. Our D may have been too confident coming in. I had this marked as a loss, but we need to see the D come out with some fire next week.

Cooks looked great, and when we ran the ball we ran well. Overall the offense played well considering the D never let them rest.

Re: I am sure the sky will be falling around here

it is atlanta in atlanta records do not matter. snot knocker every time we play. thus is life in the NFC South

Offense showed up with their A game for both sides

Atlanta Defense stepped up big time

Saints Defense might as well stayed home. definitely that was not a fifth rank defense showing. Little or no adjustments after half. never mind. lets see what the brain trust comes up with next week. lets hope it aint deep cover 2 again.

37 points given up, the sky might not be falling but the clouds got real dark on this one.

One 3 and out the entire game, scoring on 6 of 10 drives, and a tip drill in the endzone and our QB gets smoked.

One Qb had a completion % of 72, the other a completion % of 69... Looks pretty damn close
