  2. Put Matt Ryan on the Saints offense behind that O-line with Payton as his coach and the Saints become Superbowl favorites. Hiring Quinn was a mistake, Shanahan should have been the Falcons head coach. Falcons would be playoff bound today if Kyle was the coach, that guy will become one of the best coaches in football.
  3. Morris can not match skills with Sean Payton, like him or not Payton is a top tier coach. Put Matt Ryan on the Saints offense and they become Superbowl favorites.
  4. And he is 19-10 against the Falcons, I would say he has had pretty good success.
  5. From what i know, the Church seek console from the Saints media group on how to handle the media and how to plan there response. The football side of the Saints weren't involved. There or good priest and all priest shouldn't be judged by the sick actions of others. As far as bountygate its been researched that after the Saints played a team the following week that team had less people on injury list than any other team. And theres this. https://vikingswire.usatoday.com/2016/10/26/turns-out-the-vikings-also-had-a-bounty-program-when-brett-favre-was-qb/
  6. If thats the case the Falcons have always been ugly and the Saints had at least been pretty once.
  7. https://vikingswire.usatoday.com/2016/10/26/turns-out-the-vikings-also-had-a-bounty-program-when-brett-favre-was-qb/ This is how Farve feels.
  8. The Saints have a good chance of facing the Niners in the NFC championship game, they will beat the Vikings at home, then they or 7-1 on the road this year and the Packers ain't much better than the team the Falcons beat on there playoff run (Falcons had a very easy run to the Superbowl, teams they played were not very good at that time and thats why they folded in the Suoerbowl) the Packers just struggled with a 3 win team so yeah, the Niners will be the test. But they have a good chance of seeing the Superbowl again. Revenge against the Viking, Seahawks and Niners will be huge motivation.
  9. After going up 28-3 in the third quarter all of Atlanta including myself knew the Falcons would win that Super Bowl, there was no way they could lose it. The fans were so happy because the elusive trophy would be there’s. Make no mistake, being 15 minutes away from a blowout in the Super Bowl to being humiliated is the worst feeling. And it’s like that’s what America wanted, Brady the legend and the 3-28 comeback, the Falcons a team who choked away the Super Bowl, the fans can still hear the laughter as they fade away into NFC south mediocracy.
  10. The Saints and the Falcons or similar both teams have no identity, there is no reason for the Falcons to be as bad as there record says, both teams have similar talent. The Saints have issues with there offensive line but the biggest deal is Latimore, no one can stay close to Jones the Saints have mediocre DB's. The first game got out of hand early with to many first downs because of hands to the face and other dumb mistakes, the push the Falcons were getting up the middle is what help get them "6" sacks and when Latimore went out that was game. The Falcons been playing possum all year I think they or on the brink of breaking out and the Saints or not as good as they seem to the media.
  11. I want to thank the Falcons for opening the eyes of a 7-2 Saints team with a 2 game lead on the division at the moment, this lost will prepare them better for the playoffs, sometimes it takes a beating to make you better, its been a great season so far and I know the Falcon fans have been enjoying it, so have fun and see you guys the playoffs.
  12. Thats what happens when you win games and dont make the playoffs, its a fact, you lose a draft spot and end up holding onto a coach that led you into the dumpster. it would have been better if they lost by 30 than win this game, it was worthless.
  13. Sean Payton making sure Quin keeps his job, If the Falcons win at least 5 more games, that puts them out of a high drat pick and still miss the playoffs but most important Quin keeps his job, While Payton rolls into the playoffs, its all about the Superbowl and not one regular season game.

  15. Its not a illegal whistle in the stands, the guy is called the whistle monster he has a large whistle hat on his head and can whistle very loud, I have seen it. What gets me is that every NFL talking head and show called that play a PI and pointed out that the game was over at that point if called, no big deal I think because the Saints have there Superbowl and the next one wouldn't have been as special anyway so I don't see why everyone keeps bringing it up, maybe its because the ref's were from LA and it was obvious I guess.
  16. How many HoF QB's would let there team give up a 28-3 lead in a Superbowl? Yes its a team sport but if the QB does his job when the offense is on the field, audible at right time, read the blitz and lead the team, no HoF QB have ever lost a Superbowl like that, and no HoF will ever lose one that way, remember its a Superbowl, and NO he is not better than those guys.
  17. Let's be realistic here for a bit, then we can get back to the city bashing and name calling. My thoughts on the Falcons. Coming into the season I thought the Falcons was a favorite for the Superbowl, top 5 passing game, top 5 running, top 15 defense and your winning a lot of games, Julio, Ridley, Freemen, Debo man thats a scary bunch. But the injury bug hit and starters fell like flies and when you lose pro bowl players the backups just won't cut it, along with the starters going down the backups begin losing there edge, making misakes and losing that hunger. they let Drew Brees scramble for touchdown for petes sake. Also the offense made dumb mistakes all year, I was at that last Saints/Falcons game and seen the dumb fumbles inside the 10 yard line they gave up scores and the game should have been a lot closer, they lost there edge. The Saints overachieved last year, they played harder and smarter with less talent than the Falcons have on there roster. So like him or hate him Sean payton is a huge reason for there success. Even with a 32nd rank defense that the Saints been having the last 8 years the offense hae always been great, give Payton the Falcons offense and he wins a Superbowl with them, the fault is with the head coach for not getting depth, the fault is on the head coach for not having his guys ready.
  18. The Eagle game was the game to lose, hard to game plan around Foles. At least with the Rams everyone knows what there going to get and its easier to game plan for Goff.
  19. If Rankins is out then Onyamama will replace him, Onyamama is sevicable but not Rankins.
  20. Saints had 11 penalties to Eagles 4 and they were down 14 points in the first quarter, also a touchdown from Taysom Hill to Kamara called back.. I wouldn't say there that lucky and even if it the ball is not intercepted on that 2:00 minute play the Eagles needed a touchdown against the 2nd best scoring defense in the NFL.
  21. Whats crazy is the Saints have the 2nd best scoring defense in the NFL and thats only 2nd to the Bears. Now lets see if Rankins make it back because he was an anchor in that D-line and the way the Rams ran the ball against Dallas he will be needed. The Saints playing with confidence in there house after spotting the Eagles 14 points and making that comeback with a 119 yard drive taking up 11 minutes of clock, I think they will be hard to beat in the Superdome.
  22. what teams fans or not terrible, every team have some idiot fans that go above and beyond, also its a NFL tradition to wish hate the other team. Its a way of life.
  23. I like it, the man is like a fan he fires up his team and is always looking for an edge. I am bored with the typical coach that says the same thing before and after every game. when you put your heart into something it shows, the players and the fans can feel it.
  24. QB alone can't carry a team, BREES is a Hall of famer and one of the greatest of all times, and with that how many 7-9 seasons did he have, how many playoff games did he leave the field with the lead only to have the defense lose the game, example.. Seahawks earthquake run, 49ers Davis last second TD, Vikings Defense lose it in the final seconds. In all those games Brees took the lead to end the game. its more than just the QB.
