The Taints have become the NFL's charity case so they always schedule sympathy games against us.

Pretty much.

I would be tempted to play a drinking game around every Katrina or Gleason mention, but I would be dead before the game even starts.

Glad we get to be the fall guy every time the NFL wants to play up the emotional appeal story.

Here's how the game goes...

Saints first drive, there will be a phantom P.I. call on third down. They end up scoring, gotta set the tone you know, give them the early edge.

Falcons strike back and tie it up. The game is pretty clean, back and forth until halftime.

To start the third quarter, Falcons are driving when a questionable holding call stalls their drive just out of FG range. Another phantom P.I. call allows the Saints to build onto their lead.

The Falcons keep chipping away and finally get within 3, and have the ball in the 4th quarter. Once again we are driving effortlessly, but a dropped Sanu pass puts us in 3rd down. This could be the game. Ryan drops back and calmly finds Julio over the middle. Julio barely takes a step or secures the ball before Kenny Vaccaro (aka cheap shot artist), leads into Julio's helmet and drops him. Not only do the refs not flag Vaccaro for a personal foul, but rule that Julio made the catch and fumbled the ball even though he didn't make a "football move".

Saints sit on the lead and escape the dog and pony show by a FG.

I think that first scoring drive you have there for the Falcons will have us score, like you said, but I think you left out the LATE Holding flag they will throw right after it looks like we are about to score to bring it back and we end up punting.
