This as always will be a good game, but the saints on a short week comming off of an emotional win on the west coast gives the birds the advantage. falcons killer reggie bush (Unfortunantly) will be out for this game, giving the saints a depleted backfield.

the falcons offense should roll in this game, after watching alex smith slice and dice the saints secondary. matt ryan is licking his chops.. after watching gore gash the saints defense, they will be getting a 2 headed monster in snelling and turner sunday.

falcons Defense will be put to the test, and points will be scored by the saints, they are just now kicking the rust off, and could be very effective against the falcons.

im gonna say this game will be a shoot out and the falcons pull out the win

36-31

Hate to say it but the Saints D looks extremely opportunistic. It looks like the way to beat them is jump on 'em early and keep the pressure on. I'm not to sure the Falcons defense is good enough right now to do that.

But of course we KNOW the BUCS defense is.;)

Oh yeah...Saints 28, Falcons 24

both teams lose wildcards

Norwood and Bush both are out for along time at the very least

always a tough game no matter who plays, Saints in 2 games have looked just ok, Falcons sun looked dominate , and looking at the way Pits D is Playing , they looked better than we all thought @ Pitt....

Saints look ripe for the picking coming off a short week west coast trip...

thats when they useally play best tho and its at their house....

if Falcons can win this game , we could make a nice little run maybe...

Falcons

31 - 28

Saying Bush is out 6-8 weeks with a broken fibula or tibula.

Sad little guy was really gonna have a nice season.

he was

he was gonna get more carries aswell without bell

but he is almost as bad as norwood about getting hurt, not as bad but almost....

like i have told Norwood lovers, dont matter how much talent you have if you are not in the game...

Bush will be back with Saints

unsure if we will ever see Norwood in a Falcon uniform again....

49'ers and Falcons are 2 totally different teams. So I will discount the comparisions before they start.

Saints Offense has been MIA so far the regular season. That must change or the team will struggle this year. The Defense is what we expected it to be. They give up the yards, but compensate with takeaways.

The Falcons will present a challenge because they are firing on all cylinders after 2 games, but in fairness, it was the Cardinals who are a lost franchise post Warner.

Saints will win this important NFC South showdown by 6 points.

26-20

Frankly I'm not seeing the cause for concern some of our fans are showing; I think the team just blowing people out every other week last year spoiled some of us and made us forget this was exactly the type of game we'd lose in the past. Other than those 2 injuries I'm not the least bit worried about what our team has shown so far, in fact I'm encouraged. SB hangover, Madden Curse, targets on our back ect and OH SNAP we're 2-0 out of the gate.

Also: laugh.gif at these clowns bringing up defensive ratings after 2 weeks... we were ranked 8th last week but I guess that was too early to draw any conclusions rolleyes.giflaugh.gif

nah Cards are not lost, look at the div they are in .....

they need better qb play, like 26 other teams in the NFL, Wells will be back, Hightower has some explosion, they have Fitz, their D is not Nearrrrrrrrrrr as bad as we made it look,,,,

they just ran into a buzzsaw sunday

cards are 1-1 atop their div they will probably linger there all season 1 or 2 , 7-9 may actualy win west lol

Cards have a good coach, he has turned that Franchise around, more playoff wins since he has been there than in all other Card Franchise History Combined.

dont know if the Falcons were as good as what we saw

but i do know Cards are not as bad as what they looked....

alot would say key is to get pressure on Brees for Falcons,,,,

the Match up I am looking at is

Falcon DBs vs Saint WRs

after watching these guys since July till Now

Moore Decoud Coleman D Rob Owens even Williams

they are gonna hit you....

they are gonna hit you hard....

If the Falcons hit the Saints WRs ,

hard

very hard

Falcons can win this game......

This game will be close because they always are regardless of when and where they are played. Our teams seem to always save their best for each other.

I am going to say 31-28 Saints.

I'd also like to add that... What happened to the Saints (both wins) against the Vikings and 49ers, has no impact on how the Saints will play the rest of the season... Just like what happened to the Falcons against the Steelers and Cards (One win one loss).

This isn't college football... team A beats team B in one of 16 games= Team A is better, or Team A plays well against team B but loses = Team A is better. It doesn't work like that in the NFL.

Falcons have revamped their defense with an infusion of great young talent and key FA pickup. Their only loss was in OT to a great Steeler team at Pittsburgh. They crushed the previously unbeaten Cardinals 41-7 last week with their 3rd string running back while barely breaking a sweat. They are hitting on all cylinders in all 3 phases of the game, poised for a championship run, and want nothing more than to punish the lucky sweatheart Saints for grabbing all the headlines last year.

The Saints barely beat a shot Vikings team at home and needed 4 turnovers to slip past SF who lost by 25 in week 1 to Seattle. The Saints can't stop the run or pass protect anymore, have no Reggie Bush to bail them out on 3rd down, can't score, and are generally a shell of last year's team.

Saints luck and cheat their way to a 30-17 victory over the Falcons. :D

I agree with all of this. I was exaggerating in my original post for effect. Anyone on either side that isn't concerned about this game hasn't been paying attention to the history.

WFW is stating facts an he is a clown? What a moron nola, I usually give your age the benefit of the doubt but that was just a plain stupid comment! :blink:

Last year you were telling people to wait until like week 6 to get an accurate reading on the trends and whatnot (after Dago posted the same sentiment earlier, naturally). Now all of the sudden you're all "it's week 2 and this is your defense and offense lol" good times :)
