  1. If there is anything that I have learned in watching football, is that when it comes to divisional matchups, you have to throw out the records. It doesn't matter how well or how poorly a team has been doing. These two teams hate each other and know each other very well. This game COULD be a blowout or it COULD be a nip and tuck game. It makes me nervous because everybody expects a bloodletting, something the Saints seem to fail at when expected. I hope they remain focused and there are no injuries on either side.
  2. Lol. I actually went to college in Atl during the Smoltz, Glavine, Maddux era and became a baseball and Braves fan. It was where my hatred of the Yankees started. I still remember Jim Leyritz and his annoyingly ugly bat stance, up 2-0 in the WS and that guy hitting a HR to win the game and start the Yankees comeback. I also remember the Braves getting robbed by the Twins with a horrible call in the WS. It was SOOOOOOOOOO frustrating. I also remember going to a game in Fulton stadium where the Braves were down like 7 runs and most of the fans left the stadium, I moved waaaaaay down and watched the Braves score 7 runs in the bottom of the 9th, and win the game in like 15 innings. I doubt the Braves would lose a 28-3 lead in the WS or any playoff game.
  3. Once Brees went down, I didn't expect much. I was pleasantly surprised by the team's resolve. Our defense held us in the game long enough for special teams and our offense to finally click in. I have a greater respect for Payton for going up to Seattle who was pretty much undefeated in September at home and really lay the wood to the team. I am in shock, really. So, credit to the coaching staff for putting the players in position to win. And Alvin Kamara was a beast. It was an all around team win. I have been a Matt Ryan apologist on here, I watched yesterday's game. That INT was confusing but other than that, he looked pretty good to me. And Julio Jones is literally unguardable. I've never seen anything like it. With he and Sanu, it would seem like the passing attack should be your bread and butter. The only real problem I see is your defense. They remind me of our days when we would constantly give up 3rd down plays by either long receptions or penalties, opposing wide receivers running wide open on the field and the QB only needing to make his initial read. Our defense just couldn't get off of the field.It was frustrating. Opposing QB's were having perfect passer ratings and teams were punting maybe once per half, meanwhile our offense had to be perfect to just stay in the game let alone win it. Recipe for a 7-9 season or worse.
