6days between this game and the last game(mon nite),west coast trip,and playing a inspired falcons team(especially the defense). Everyone knows we played them better than any team last yr, and we were injury riddled the last game in the GA dome. I think we have them figured out. Commits?

Most of the media heads were dubbing the SF/N.O. game as that. Most of them have picked us to win,but i still dont think we are respected. I think most people outside of the AFMB view us as a Jekyll&Hyde, nite & day type team...i like our chances against them for 3 reasons. 1-our running game, 2-their lack of run-D, and 3-no D.Sharper to Q.B their defense/secondary.

A trap game would mean that it's a game that the Defending World Champion New Orleans Saints are over looking,and I can't imagine this being one of those games.The Defending World Champion New Orleans Saints offense hasn't got on track,Reggie Bush is out,the Defending World Champion New Orleans Saints defense only has 1 sack in 2 games and they're playing against a QB with a fast release AND it's a division game. If the game was in Atlanta,I would really be worried, but it's not and Drew Brees is still QB. It ought to be a good game and I think it'll be a high scoring one with Atlanta falling 31-30.

Okay, okay we get it already with the mutilple mentioning of the Defending World champions, otherwise good post, except for the final score prediction.

ATL 33

NO 20

About half of the media picked the Falcons to take the Saints division crown this year, and about half the media picked Atlanta to win this game.

So I have no idea how this could be viewed as a trap game. Most everybody understands that the Falcons have a reasonable chance to win this game or even good chance.

It is certainly not a trap game. This is the biggest rivalry between all of the NFC South teams. Many predicted us to chellenge the Saints for the division crown. The only trap game was Atlanta vs. Arizona last week and we did not overlook them. (41-7) However this is the time for Atlanta to not get too amped up and start having penalties that will help the opposing team. We should be a fierce hard hitting team but also with discipline even though this game is the biggest for our franchise so far this season.

You make some very interesting point my friend. This is the same defense from last season for them, without a few key players. The defense was not spectacular (i.e. Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Monte Kiffin's Bucs). They played aggressive, and let teams beat them selves. The 49ers Game show a lot of what happen last season. Receivers not catching ball, and tipping them for the defender. QB's making throws that should not be attempted in high school. Not to take anything away from Greg Williams, but he's not doing what Marvin Lewis, Monte Kiffin, Jim Johnson were doing.

The main reason for this is our offense. If your team enters the game thinking they HAVE to outscore us then each pass, each reception, each run becomes that much more important for you. That equates to additional pressure on each player to make the pass or the run or the catch. Thats what benefits our style of defense. When our offense is on, teams start to feel the pressure of having to keep pace. That leads to mistakes and even more pressure when we capitalize on those mistakes. Its a downward spiral when those two things click.

Of course GW isnt doing what Lewis, Kiffin and Johnson were doing because they don't/didn't have the complimentary offense to go with them.

My only commit would be that, given that this is probably one of the most intense rivalry's in the NFL, doubt either team has the upper hand in the figuring out department. Falcons just need to match their intensity and play error free football despite the hostile environment.

And from the looks of both boards its about to get knocked up a few notches. Go Birds!!!!

The Saints haven't put together a complete game on offense this year. If they do that, at home, they'll be nearly impossible to beat. Their opportunistic defense fits well with a dominant offense.

A loss for Atl means they are two games back after only three played. That would be close to devastating. A win, however, puts the Falcons in the conversation for best team in the NFC.

The Saints are looking ahead to Carolina?

I once thought that as well, but this statement is not true. Case and point: Both Falcons Games, The Dolphins Game, and the NFC Championship. You could also throw in the Super Bowl. You have a high powered offense, but you won a lot of your games on defense. The big offensive games were blowouts.

No, the real trap game was at SF last week. SF played so poorly against the Seahawks, it was easy for NO to go into it thinking it was in the bag before they played. 49ers had a good chance to smack them in the mouth if the Saints came in flat footed, but they had enough to get by the 49ers.

Trap game, WTF? The Saints have not played a complete game this year. You better pray it doesn't come together this week.
