The number 1 ground game and the local talent Warrick are ready to pounce. In Atlanta with payback on their minds. Stopping their ground attack is, hopefully, priority number 1. Our fron 4 need to over-acheive

Love/hate on Dunn. Great guy, very, very good football player, and he just plays for the wrong team. If he'd been a Saint, he'd be one of our most popular players in our history. I laughed when they signed him away from the Bucs, and I couldn't have been more wrong. He's been worth every penny, one of the few great moves by the Falcons since what's his name became owner.

We completely neutralized Dunn in the first game, but our run D has deterioriated over the course of the season. I don't know if big Hollis is wearing down or we're just overpursuing or what, but I'm starting to get that "hold my breath" feeling I used to have everytime Venturi's D took the field. Don't get me wrong, I think Gibbs is a definite upgrade as DC, but we're still a bit short on talent. I hope our guys rise to the occasion and take Dunn out of the picture again, because we need this win really really bad. And yeah, it hurts even more that the guy is from BR. Dunn's a class act playing for a classless franchise.

Copy THAT!

WD is one of my current NFL Heroes and I'm very proud of the fact that he is from Louisiana!

I do , though, this week-end at least, hope he has a VERY quiet game.

If they really want to shut down the Run game they will play Danny Clark at MLB...but he usually gets beat on pass plays... so i dont know... Clark is better in the run game... all he looks for is the run... so playaction would eat him up... I hope we can get pumped like we did for the monday night game

ATL has showed they can for the most part surge to see any TD a team score on them, our Defense Job will be to stop the new vick passing game, getting in Vick face isn't really a top priority but it could help, ATL is gonna use they're Running game on us this up coming game and they know we are gonna be in the air so they are gonna get in Brees face and force Turnovers like last week.

This is gonna be "THE GAME TO WATCH" This weekend, this is probably gonna be the best Revisit of Rivals game all season long, i hope it will air here in tampa.

Im seeing a High Scoring game this weekend, I wont predict a score because i think it's jinx to do that so i'll just say highest score will be in the Upper 40's

You guys are amazing! The mere fact that you admit that Warrick Dunn is a great person is a testament to the class of the Saints Fans.

If it were reversed, Atlanta fans would see nothing good in one of our guys and would just talk smack about them. They even talk smack about their OWN players!

Well, we are talking about off the field. Dunn builds houses for less fortunate families. I think what he does it great and he is a local B.R boy. It is funny that the Falcons talk about their own players though. (We have a few on here that talk about our players though).

Yeah You Rite! I don't understand all of the horrible criticism of Freddie Thomas! Man, I LOVE him as a hardcore player who lays it all out, all of the time!

Yet I understand the dissapointment with him sure. He had a bad game OR the coverage was called wrongly! I don't know for sure except that FT has had a career of strong play for us and I am a FAN of his!

And, as I stated earlier, I enjoy Warrick's success except when the Dirty Birds play US!
