Ha….Saints are done. That defense is a sieve and Brees looks like hurricane Katrina got to him again.

Taints fans….you’re staring 0-2 in the face….oh and 0-1 in the NFC South.

Any idiot knows Buffalo is good for a fast start….just look at last season for an example.

Meanwhile, KC got any confidence they had DESTROYED last week, LOL….so no wonder they’re getting beat again.

Oh, but where are those brilliant folks that were extolling Romeo Crennel’s defensive prowess and scheming? Crickets…crickets…crickets…just like Taints fans right about now…

So I wonder when the mopers will come around….not until or unless Denver has a lead at any point during the game is my guess.

But even if for some reason the Falcons lose, they’re still be better than……0-2!!!!! LOL

This just goes to show you how much of the content on these blogs is made up of Falcon anti-fans and Saints fans. Real Falcon fans can hardly get a word in edge-wise and it becomes less worth the bother posting here.

What’s funny is how many of them claim they are on here to “tell the truth.” Well the truth is in the scores, gentlemen…and I use that term loosely….

@Seen…..0-2 ? the season is still young ???? so what, have you watched the past 2 games…..not good. “Da Man”….$100 million, an old man in the NFL age group, 2 final minutes interceptions and an 0-2 start. Brees stole that money from the aint’s !!!! Hey Seen, when those players meet with Goodell, get them to ask for a refund ! LOL !

Yeah, we need fans to make noise all nite when Manning is on the field to help out the D. We will need some rush pressure and good team work to win the game and give the game ball to Grimes. Defend the Dome.

Gruden has been an honest broker when it comes to the Falcons. As much as I disliked ‘Chuckie’ when he was coaching the Buttoneers, he’s not bad in the booth.

Still prefer to listen to the game on the Falcons’ network (when I can get it here) and watch the game with the volume off.

Mike Franklin – You’re right, “Chuckie” is awesome in the booth. He was the Packers receivers coach when I covered them. He was awesome back then. Knew he was headed for the big time!!! Will make sure I speak to him tonight before kickoff.
