3-0 start is great. If Atlanta ends up basically playing .500 ball the rest of the way, 7-6, they will still have 10 wins and a good shot a the playoffs. Great positon to be in. They will be better than 500 but just pointing that out.

JSS, you’re a helluva a guy
Nothing like a fan
whose cheers you can buy

Saints man?
Panthers man?
Bucs Man, too?
Trolling on the Falcons is all you want to do.

Someday, somehow, we’ll get to the top
But even when we do, your BS will never stop
Rising up this Sunday, the Falcs take down the cats
JSS, do us a favor… just don’t piss your pants.
