I’m looking at other nfl teams and I notice our defense of line ain’t got dat push and pass rush and in da playoffs we gone need dat to win.Defense in a hold need to step up.Pride we won but could but better.

“Falcons ‘escape’ with a 24-23 win”…………..?????????
I think it was more like the Falcons handed the Bucs a defeat, and rode out of Tampa on their white horses.
Look at the game stats.

Nawh, Ledbetter has it correct. The fal can’ts escaped from Tampa, barely.

This Thursday night, the Saint s will continue their complete domination of their little fal can’t brothers, and make it 5 straight victories over them.

G EAUX SAINT S !!!

SUXThisBZero, a little surprised to see you given your teams demise. You usually hide after your team loses, which has been quite often this year. It’s kinda obvious, the only way you feel your season is a success at this point would be to beat the MIGHTY MIGHTY FALCONS at home. At 5-6, not much to cheer for. Spagnuolo has that defense really crankin’ ay? That butt whuppin’ the 49er’s put on you was your nail in the coffin. You are done Peeshwank.

It’s fitting you take a team photo with a vacant spot for your head coach…………….we can either just wait or photoshop him sitting with the Dallas Cowboys team photo.

SF 31 NO 21 You got beat by a rookie QB……. “AGAIN”…………..roflmao.

Complete domination? How can that be, the Falcons own the series.
BLEAUX CAINTS

SUX said on his own blog yesterday “Hopefully, Jonathon Vilma forces Harbaugh to play Alex Smith” Lol, Vilma Schmilma………….hope ya got 12-15 of them…..!!

@Esqueer: Five Straight! and 12 of the last 14! Deal with it.

And we’re not out of it yet. The last team your team wants to see in the playoff is my team.

By the way, you quoting my statements from other blogs?! Wow! You’re like my own paparazzi.

G EAUX SAINT S !!!

From the Caints blog:
I think the division title is out of reach. The Falcons would have to have an epic choke , which I just don’t see. So, that being said, pull for Atlanta to beat the Bucs….just gives us a little breathing room. I think we’ll beat them but hey, doesn’t hurt to stack the deck a little. We can pay back the Falcons for having to swallow the bitter pill of pulling for them in the Playoffs!
***************************************************
Well, we did our part………….that’s a “W” over the Bucs!! What happened to the Caints “W”???

Five Straight! and 12 of the last 14??? Really, wow, we have so dominated the series you still can’t catch up. Deal with it.

@Still Gritz Blitz’n: Yeah, yeah, yeah, and the time before that, it was 6 inches your team couldn’t get. Hail to the Saint s! They own the fal can’ts, lock stock and barrel.
