    Falcons vs Saints 11-2-9

    Saints are beatable!

    QB and Kicker stats will tell a huge part of the story.
    One of Ryan's 3 INTs was a garbage INT at the end of the game.
    Third down efficiency took ATL down.
    Horrible!
    Also New Orleans tried to keep ATL in the game with those 3 fumbles, ATL threw INTs to equalize the turnover stats.

    Saints score too many TDs.
    Have to hold them to more FGs.

    Not just the stats. If you watched the game ... you can definitely tell they are beatable.

    It will take a solid game, but I personally think we are the kind of team that can get them. They do NOT have super speedy receivers, which means if you can get pressure up front you can defend them well with a decent nickel package.

    They do not SCARE me. They are very solid though.

    When they thumped the Giants, I was a little worried.
    Then the Giants get thumped again by Philly.
    NO's game against the Phins made them look stronger for coming back and then turning it on than looking bad for being down to the Phins in the first place.

    The game last night against ATL was one that shows they do make mistakes.
    The INT by Brees was an awesome snag by the DB from ATL.
    The fumbles by the RBs, we can get those with our D.


    We just have to concentrate on not turning the ball over.
    Protect that ball!
    Have the ball last!

    Despite those mistakes they still put a thumbin on a up and coming good damn team.
    Throw in that they only really have the Patriots and the Falcons again, that might be able to beat them and you have a team that will have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

    Just look at the way thier recievers matchup against us.
    Super speedy, no, big and able to go up and get it, yes.
    Multiple threats out of the backfield, TE that can block and catch the ball, QB who can get it to any place on the field.

    I for one don't think they are that easy of a matchup.

    Rodgers is another Qb that is suppose to be able to make every throw on the field.
    Granted the Saints have a better line and Brees gets rid of the ball faster.
    They did get 2 sacks on Brees with a FS and a DT.

    Turner can run on them, we need to also.
    I think the fact that they have to respect the pass will help.
    I just hope we get to play them in the playoffs.
