Saints have a chance to take over Falcons facility

The Saints are close to securing the ability to play all their playoff games in their own building.

But if they make it to the Super Bowl, they’ll be taking over their division rival’s.

Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta host committee said the NFC representative in Super Bowl LIII will work out at the Falcons facility in Flowery Branch, and use the home locker room at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.



That would obviously thrill the Saints, for reasons beyond the obvious one that they’d be in the Super Bowl. The AFC team will practice at Georgia Tech and use the visiting locker room.

“Um, whomever is playing for the championship, I guess I’m most disappointed that we won’t be the ones playing and practicing in our facility,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said.

The one thing that could be almost as sweet as winning it in our own building would be winning it in theirs.

Just the title of this thread is intriguing.

Re: Saints have a chance to take over Falcons facility

I'd never do anything close to the Falcon's facility.
That will be the most spied upon area and the Falcons will no doubt give all the info to the AFC Champs just so we won't win another Superbowl in their house.

The SB is a fairly late game.
If I was Payton, I'd stay in New Orleans to the last minute and fly in around 2:00 game day.

Maybe better yet is expect the Falcon's facility to be rigged
and lie about everything you are going to do. Too bad I don't think you could do it with a straight face. No doubt we'd end up laughing and couldn't hide such a good thing. No... we have to fly in late.

I thought the Saints had pretty much already taken over the failclowns, lock, stock and barrel!

We’re undefeated in their new Dome. Let’s make it 3-0.

One game at a time. Let's get the bye and home field advantage before we even think about punching a ticket back to Atlanta.
