THE ICEMAN Posted May 29, 2011 Share Posted May 29, 2011 Who should win the Division the Saints or the Falcons I know the Saints won a Super Bowl but all you here about is how they did that but they fail to realize is they lost to a really bad team in the Seahawks last year and as a team that took a huge step back and even including Drew Brees with his 22 INTs and another fact I found out that Drew Brees lead teams have only been in the Playoffs in 3 of his 10 seasons so it will be hard seeing them take back control of the NFC south now. So then you have the Falcons who were 13-3 last year and could have easily been 7-9 or 15-1 as they had a ton of close games but I'm a believer that a team can only benefit from close games wither they win or lose and that the experience could pay big dividends in 2011. They have so many young players that can get better and they could also benefit from getting Sean Weatherspoon back healthy along with Peria Jerry as well there two tremendous talents and could be the equivalent of getting two first rounder picks then throw in Julio Jones and who ever they sign in Free Agency and I really don't see them taking a step back borrowing the teams healthy (injuries) I think if anything the Buc's may even send the Saints in a rebuilding type of mode as the Falcons and Buc's are much younger teams or should I say have a lot of young talent in key places QB,DL,WR and other spots and not to say the Saints don't have good talent because they do. But I think the Question that should be being asks is will the Buc's surpass the Saints this year or next and not how the Saints are going to pass the Falcons and take back over the NFC south because those days are over.Off-season moves so Far for each teamFalcons - Julio Jones,Jacquizz Rodgers - Two great picks and they filled two big needs but did take a pretty big risk with Jones as it could back fire in there faces or the move could land TD another executive of the year award again which would make it 3 out of 4 in his time in Atlanta so you would have to think he did his homework on Jones. Saints - Mark Ingram,Cameron Jordan - They filled a big need at DE with Jordan and was a great pick but I don't think he'll ever be a Pro Bowler but could be a routine 7-9 sack guy that can play inside and out and as for the Mark Ingram pick I liked it at first but when you really think about it they already had 3 pretty good guys with Thomas,Ivory and Bush but the move to me means Bush is pretty much gone and if not it'll be hard to find carries for four guys as Payton is very stubborn when it comes to running ball. Buc's - Adrian Clatborn,Da'Quan Bowers - I keep this one short mainly the Buc's will get back Brian Price as well as McCoy then the two rookies if those guys play well the Saints could fall to 3rd I don't think they could un-seed the Falcons in 2011 but I could see it in 2012 if they make the right moves this and next year as the Falcons have the last 3 years but It'll be pretty hard as they'll need the Falcons to take a step back. Out of all of those guys I think the Falcons Got the best player in Julio Jones but also took the most risk and the Saints tried to counter them with Mark Ingram which may end up being just as big a risk if they take another step back and fall behind the Buc's this year and as the Buc's continue to add young talent they could be a playoff team in 2011.We haven't even gotten in to the hole Free Agency thing yet and needless to say the Falcon will and have always been the most aggressive in Free Agency and yet another reason why I think there's noway the Saints get any better than the Falcons are right now and if anything could fall behind the Buc's if there were to sign Nnamdi________________________________________________________________________________________________________________And sorry to the Panther Fans but I really don't think they could win the Division or even make the playoffs even if Cam played as good as Sam Bradford did last year but a good solid 8-8 or 7-9 year could have them thinking playoffs in 2012 but they do have some good young player and also some young guys like Charles Johnson or DeAngleo Williams who will more than likely be gone if the rules get redone similar to the 2009 rules were both of those guys could be unrestricted Free Agents so the June 3 hearing could be pivotal for them as can't really afford to lose either of those guys mainly a guy likely Charles Johnson who could land right here in ATL.
