WHO DAT, Saints fans, WHO DAT!!!!!! Our Saints conclude another disappointing NFL regular season campaign as they are in Downtown Atlanta, to play the 2016 NFC South Champions Falcons. Saints have a chance later this afternoon, not only to play for their pride in this afternoon's season finale, but also play spoilers, to impact the Falcons in their upcoming postseason.
Even if the Saints win, their record would not be enough as in the last four years, New Orleans had an 11-5 record, but finished 7-9 in both 2014 and 2015, and would finish no better than 8-8 in 2016.
More ironic is that the Saints, led by Drew Brees may finish #1 in Total Team Offense in the NFL, but yet still not make the playoffs. At the same time, the Saints are also ranked #25 in Total Defense, and their defense will be likely addressed in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft. Their low ranking in Total Defense could still be remnants through today when Rob Ryan was the Saints Defensive Coordinator.
Saints also have the honor as being the Falcon's last regular season opponent to play an NFL game inside the Georgia Dome. The Falcons are moving next door to their new Mercedes-Benz Stadium being built under construction, and should be opened on time for their 2017 NFL season.
NO injuries, Happy New Year, Saints fans, and thanks New Orleans Saints for entertaining your fans throughout 2016, and New Years's Day. GEAUX SAINTS, and WHO DAT!!!!!
