Most underrated rivalry in NFL, both on and off the field. Almost every game with Aints is decided in the final drive.

I was at the Falcons/Saints Thursday night game last year in Atlanta. The next day this awful blizzard rolled through Atlanta and basically every flight was cancelled. Friday night I was heading to my room and was wearing Falcons gear still. A drunk saints fan stumbled into the elevator and saw my gear, his face dropped. Looked like he was about to cry. 

He goes, “You guys kicked our *** last night, and then I get snowed in and I’m stuck here to stew on it.” I’m pretty sure he did cry a little bit as we awkwardly waited for the elevator to open up again. Think I just told him we still had a game in New Orleans, just to keep the guy off the suicide watch list. It was pretty bizarre.

Nah, it was a rivalry way before Brees and it'll be a rivalry after he's gone.

The win-loss record never mattered.

Well, I said it will simmer. I didn’t say die. The rivalry has strengthened due to Ryan and Brees. Unless the Saints find a franchise QB immediately after Brees, it will simmer.

Greatest live sports memory ever for me. Man I just started waving goodbye to those Saints and their fans after that. What a ride that night was.
