Falcons can win in NO this week. Two things need to happen

Not saying they WILL win, but they CAN win. Two things-

1.Ryan has to play a great game- no turnovers, lead the team to TDs instead of FGs.

and

2. The front four on D has to get pressure on Brees by themselves.

Those two things happen, Falcons can be the winner next Sunday.

Looks like Bush is out for the game- which helps the falcons more than many posters here realize.

I think the Falcons will score some points, not sure if the D can keep Brees&Co in check. I think there are too many new pieces on D to stop Brees, but we'll see.

BVG needs to disguise alot of his blitzes and send them more than usual. This is not dennis dixon, or derek anderson. We SHOULD NOT ONLY RUSH 3 this game. Keep pressure on brees all night long, keep him guessing where the blitz is coming from, and occasionally drop ja55 or kroy back in coverage to stop that quick pass to the tight end or slot reciever.

Brees has even better numbers than his overall numbers when blitzed- he actually completes more passes/has a better QB rating when blitzed. You need to blitz some because you want him to think about that, but what you really need is to get pressure without a blitz.

There are lots of factors that will determine this game, but I think the most important is the Atl OL vs the Saints DL.

The Falcons should be a good bit fresher than the Saints in this one. It's tough coming back from a west coast MNF game.

I'd expect to see the Falcons giving the Saints a heavy dose of the smashmouth gameplan in this game.

most of those passes he completes are short pass, thats why i mentioned to drop the ends during some blitzes. Drew will know who is coming but he wont be expecting the ends to drop in coverage to prevent those tight end passes in the middle of the field. Just like the superbowl a couple years ago with pitt and arizona, when james harrison dropped in coverage and got the pick6, thats what im talking about.

Just tell JA98, Peria, Babs and Peters to get a good consistent push up the middle of the pocket. That'll keep Brees from stepping up and stop their little running game.

Stress to the DE's and LB's not to overpursue, since they threw a bunch of different RB screens last night.

It'll come down to Turn-overs and who controls the clock, this game is going to come to who win's it in the trenches, i also see a Offensive display about to happen this weekend, saints will be in the air a lot more than they have been, and we may be taking Chris Ivory off injury reserve and getting him suited up, there's tape on him from Preseason.

Falcons and Saints are the strongest teams in the Division "so far" Buc's look to be a threat too but still a smidgen of what they were in 2002-2005 and are young and rebuilding..

This will be a tug of war, dog fight, most of all exciting and fun game to watch..

hopefully both teams leave virtually injury free and of course im going to say WHO DAT'S should win this game.. i wont expect ya'll to agree :-)

His YPA is a yard more than his overall average when he gets blitzed. 9.4 to 8.45. His QB rating is 128 blitz to 109 overall.

You can't take a player off IR.

I think you are right on the money. A breakout game from Jerry, Babs, Lewis or Peters will go a long way. Push the middle of the line. The interior of the defense is the key to stopping these guys. They need to be taught to read the screens, and to get their hands up when Brees throws.

On offense, we need another solid game from the OLine, and need to PROTECT THE FOOTBALL.

those Saints are going to be tough to beat, don't fool yourselves. That game was good for them in a lot of ways. the great teams just win, and if you all know anything about football like i know some of yall do, you know what i'm talking about!

and you know this will be Saints biggest test to date, Min for sure dont look like the NFC Championship team from last yr.....

Atlanta will be the first time you have had to contain all pros across the board on O like Atlanta has at

WR

TE

RB

and even FB

Saints will have to play better D than they did Mon Night to beat Atlanta,

agreed and want to reinforce the fact we must have a running game going!!! snelling turner, doesnt matter who, just run the ball well so we can keep brees and co off the field as much as possible!!

You'll notice I said falcons can win, not will win.

This is going to be a great game, with another one coming up in Dec, wouldn't be surprised with a 3rd match-up in Jan.
