First off I think the saints are the most overhyped overrated team in the NFL. I will tell you fans why they have looked so impressive, the biggest reason is because of their schedule. They have played two rookie QBs at home, an Eagles team (at home) who lost to the Raiders, they played the bills and brees threw 0 tds, and an injury plagued team in the G Men. Their D looks so improved because they have either played offenses that are really young like the Jets and Lions or offenses with no threat at the WR position like the Giants and Bills and yes TO is no longer a threat. Now dont get me wrong when we play them on monday night they wont be a walk in the park, but they are not as good as the media portrays. I am sure Smiths team is going to be prepared for this game. What do you guys think about my point??

My favorite though is this dunce who says:

They are averaging 430 yards and 38 points a game.

Yes that is impressive but they throw the ball 35-50 times a game

And he's answered by another falcon fan with this:

Actually averaging 32 times per game, which is 20th in the NFL. And run 34 times a game which is 2nd in the NFL. logic fail. lol

I don't think it's possible for me to despise the Falcons and their fanbase more than I already do!

It sort of sucks that our divisional games are so late, because this delusional behavior needs to be stopped. Not for bragging rights, but for the good of the Falcon's fans. They're past the point where they're able to help themselves.

Their game will be a tough one at home, however should we get a W in Miami, I could seriously see us spanking them back home in the Dome on Monday night. I think our home field advantage is tops in the NFL right now.

Yep. Just read this response from their board

"Valid! This game is not what the Saints want. A team that can match their offense point for point will them trouble. As good as their offense is, we play a different style of defense than most other team (bend but don't break). I think our defense is capable to holding them to a bunch of fg's"

Minnesota is one game ahead of us :1zhelp:.

EDIT: Half a game :covri:.

Whatever... our smallest margin of victory was 14, and our average margin of victory is 19.8. We have outscored our opponents by 99 points over the first five weeks!!


The Falcons' opponents are a combined 14-12

The Saints' opponents are a combined 14-15

It will probably be a good game, but I have no reason to believe we will lose that game without an extraordinary effort by the Atlanta Falcons

First off, the poster is saying that our fans and the atmosphere of the Superdome makes it the hardest place this season for opposing teams to play. That's what he means by "our homefield advantage is tops," not that we are in the lead for homefield advantage in the playoffs.

Second, Minnesota is not a game ahead of us. They are a half-game ahead of us. We are both undefeated but they have played one more game and have one more win than us because we have had a bye and they haven't. That translates to a 1/2 game lead, not a full game lead in the standings.
