Atlanta Falcons are just an stupid team, a total JOKE.
From headcoach to the QB….Tony Gonzales is the hottest player, receiver, the go to guy, the bread and butter….What do they do?….Stupid running BOOOOOOORING PLAYS throughout. They barely get Gonzales involved. You have to be a MORON not to notice that Gonzales is in a Zone (1st qt. Saintsgame)
and then total STUPIDITY. That’s why they will get BLOWN OUT. Deservedly so.
FALCONS ARE A STUPID TEAM. Get a real coach and QB. Have you heard of M.Vick??

Saints Game.
Atlanta Head Coach and QB…..Don’t be so STUPID and FOOLISH.
Anyone, anyone at all, but you 2 MORONS, can see the fact that Tony G is got the hot hand. Go to him, brain dead fools !!!!
Stop making IMBECILIC decisions.

I’m here. Had to get some drinks and dinner after the game. Can’t you guys hold your horses?

Aw right, ya[[ won, but you need luck (shanked kick), the refs helping your loser team (bogus interference on Grier in OT after the shank), and injuries to our team, to do it. You know, the same excuses you fools used since last year.

Well, ya’ll know what you can do with your win!

GEAUX SAINTS! OUR TIME!!

Wow Seen that was really lame. I remember in a former post that you wouldn’t do that. So, what’s i like knowing your aints are really not all that. KC just put a whooping on the 9ers. The aints are who we thought they were and we didnt let you get away with it this time.

RE look up stupid in the dictionary – your picture is beside it. Mike Vick – the criminal – the qb who would have set Atlanta back 10 years if wasn’t for the ownership and management of our team. Get real, great team – professional, class organization that doesn’t need Vick’s or any other criminals.

I have to say what a darn good game. I cant lie i gotta say good for you Hiramsaint, and seriously SeenthisB4, how much of a lame sore loser hypocrite can you be. Ive seen your annoying post on here for a very long time talking s#$t about how bad our Falcons are all simply because your lucky ass saints where gifted a Superbowl last year by both God and the referees. Now your really going to go that rout and act like a simpleton mouth breather huh??? Stay away man you really do nothing but make people feel much better about themselves because they simply aren’t you.
WHO DAT TEAM GONNA BEAT THEM SAINTS!!! WHO DAT?? OH BABY THE FALCONS!!! THATS WHO!!!

Hey Orlando, one of you guys shouold write about the fact that there are NO Atlanta Falcons in the NFL Hall of Fame. Falcons have been around for almost 50 years! None! The 2 listed on the HOF site were Falcons very briefly (neither of them bolded as being their main team).
Check out http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/teams.aspx
What about top 10 all time tackles leader Jessie Tuggle, or perenial All-Pro center Jeff Van Note or amazing QB surrounded by bad teams, Steve Bartkowski? Even returner Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, 17 year player Mike Kenn or All-Decade Team for the 1960s, Tommy Nobis. This is a travesty to me. For crying out loud, Rickey Jackson, linebacker for the Saints and Russ Grimm of the Redskins were just put in. Decent players, but look at the Falcons list above!
