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

The win-loss record never mattered.

51-46.

Oh, I see where the misunderstanding is.

I meant the teams' win-loss record for that particular season never mattered when we played them. Sometimes beating them was the only bright spot we could point to.

And it was even better if we could knock them out of the playoffs.

There have been years where we both sucked, and years where we were both good, and sometimes one team had the advantage over the other.

But it has always been a rivalry, IMO.

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

or if the taints can't win it on their own,  by the referees  :ninja::ninja:

This rivalry really got started when the falcons passed on Patrick Swilling out of GT. He said he was gonna make the falcons pay EVERY time he played us .... and he hyped it up before every game

Nothing except a SB win this season would bring me more joy than to smack those smug bagheads in the mouth both times this year.

A SB win after beating them in the playoffs would be fantastic.

LOL if you're gonna go that way you could at least post something from LI.

This one is babysh*t by comparison!!!

:lol:

I could. 28-3 is easy. Yall seem to forget that just like the Saints snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, so did the Falcons. 4 plays inside the 10 yard line, only to have a pass sail through the hands of Blanks favorite son.

Sad to say we were getting kind of used to that last season.

Yeah can't really say I was surprised when we couldn't pull out the Eagles game late.

Having what should have been a sure victory change to defeat within a matter of seconds, however, is one of if not the most devastating way to lose.  The fans reactions posted on youtube truly said it all.

Being accustomed to failure doesn't make the failure any better.

Lone eggman suspected in pelting of Saints team bus

Updated Nov 29, 2012
By

He may be a hero to Falcons fans, but the lone eggman allegedly responsible for pelting the New Orleans Saints team bus Wednesday night could face trouble from his employer.

“This type of behavior, or misbehavior, is totally unacceptable,” Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport GM Louis Miller said Thursday.

Miller said it appears up to four eggs were tossed by one airline worker from the tarmac between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.

But his identity remains a mystery.

“Whether it’s a ramp worker or a concession employee, we just don’t know yet,” Miller said, adding that airport officials take the incident seriously.

 

“We’re going to make sure we find out who it is, take the appropriate action and we’re also going to be proceeding with the training of everybody to make sure you just don’t do this sort of stuff,” he said.

The matter will be turned over to the eggman’s employer, Miller said, who will decide how the culprit should be punished.

The incident has attracted national attention across football-mad America. Word of the egging spread quickly online Wednesday night after several Saints players tweeted their reactions.

“Wow, as we’re boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers!” wrote reserve quarterback Chase Daniel. “Guess they do hate us!”

The driver of the charter bus told Channel 2 Action News the egging caught everyone by surprise.

“I said that couldn’t be an egg you know because I’m out here on the tarmac at the plane,” said Clarence Lester, a Champion Coach driver. “How can this have happened in a secure area?”

Meanwhile, the eggman has succeeded in ramping up what is already one of football’s nastiest, albeit underrated, rivalries.

“There should be a civic award for throwing produce of any sort at the Saints,” said longtime Falcons fan Doug Gross, of Decatur. “In a perfect world, they’d be paid a $5,000 bounty for it. The Saints would understand.”

But not every Falcons fan appreciated the egging.

Phillip Bowen, of Toccoa, said it signaled a troubling trend for Atlanta sports fans.

“To be perfectly honest, I believe the Atlanta fans are classless,” Bowen said. “Between the Braves game, where the fans helped out the cleaning crew by consolidating all trash on the field and [the people] egging buses, how can you say otherwise? Personally, I like the idea of fans taunting opposing teams, but this is uncalled for.”

Win or lose, the Saints should remain egg-free on their way back to the Big Easy. Miller said Atlanta police will augment the airport security when the team departs from Hartsfield-Jackson.
