THIS!!

How does Gallette get zero pressure going against the same left tackle that got Cutler killed season after season.

Damn near 500 passing yards.. it's a flashback to 2012 all over again. If the play of the D doesn't give you pause, you are living in la la land.

The falcons receivers made tough catch after tough catch

Colston dropped 2 passes, fell down on a wide open first down easy conversion and fumbled the ball in the critical stages

Defense better do something, 37 points and 600 yards of offense, might aswell quit now if that's how your going to play

Lol. I mentioned the 3 most pivotal plays. I didn't blame this L on Brees. Some of you focused in on that.

I thought our passing game would be good, but I'm shocked at how well Carimi and Holmes played against two pass rushers like Gallete and Jordan.

No point in blaming anything except the defense in this loss. It was terrible.

I'm hoping that it's because they didn't play together much in preseason but the lack of pressure on Matt Ryan was obvious. Cam Jordan did nothing, neither did Galette. Got one sack and not very many pressures at all. That won't get it done.

We are all shocked.

Our D-line looked awful. Your line either played well or JR and Cam are overrated. Time will tell the story here.

Not shocked you guys won, but I am shocked our D played so badly.

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

I don't know where this team is going and I'm not interested in making predictions. All I can say is for one game, this team is everything they were hyped up to be on offense, but defensively, they are non-existent.

I have to think the defense is at least somewhat better than what they showed today, but there isn't really a way to sugar coat giving up 568 yards. And it was the Falcons. They have a couple good receivers, but they don't have a truly elite QB, and they have an old man running the ball. This wasn't Peyton Manning torching us.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

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

It was a classic Falcons v Saints game!

It could have gone either way for the win as previous games have done. If you look a previous results a lot of the games have been close.

Its only the 1st game of the season, still lots of time to sort things out. But, I have to say that I think the Browns won't be quite so worried about us when we visit them now.

It will be interesting to see how the Falcons get on when they visit us in December!

Ryan needs to get the defence sorted otherwise this is going to be a long season for us.

Well done to Cooks, great debut for us and a good solid performance from Ingram.

Geaux Saints!!!!
