Point-Counterpoint: Falcons vs. Saints

(NOTE… from Atlanta’s point of view)

By Daniel Cox

Every week there’s a rush of information in the days leading up to gameday. Bloggers, TV analysts, reporters, fans … everyone has an opinion, and in the age of hyper-speed new media, everyone’s got a chance to share it.

But sometimes it’s tough to focus through all the noise.

Here we examine three storylines entering Week 3 that you’ll surely hear all about. We present the flipside, the ideas from inside the walls of the team headquarters, to suggest what the Atlanta Falcons are thinking of the popular headlines.

What they will say: The Saints are 18-3 in their last 21 games and 9-2 at the Superdome dating back to the beginning of 2009.

What we’re saying: Dating back to 2008, the Falcons have lost three consecutive games to the Saints. Under head coach Mike Smith Atlanta has never lost to an NFC South rival four games in a row. Studious and well-prepared, with two seasons of film to watch, the Falcons coaching staff will be ready for the Saints’ explosive offense and opportunistic defense. The last time out, Atlanta fell to New Orleans 26-23 in a game that saw the Falcons with an opportunity for the tie or the win in their final possession.

Drew Brees focused on wins, not record

By Pat Yasinskas

Even if you had Drew Brees‘ cellphone number, there’s no way you could reach him right now.

You wouldn’t even get a ring; you’d hear, “This mailbox is full.’’ It’s been that way for weeks now, and you can’t really blame the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints.

Contract talks? They can wait until after the season.

Dan Marino? He can wait, too.

Sprow: Saints can take Packers

By Pat Yasinskas

NEW ORLEANS — The Saints are focused solely on their “Monday Night Football’’ game with the Atlanta Falcons right now. A victory will give them the NFC South title.

But fans and media have been getting ahead of the game and comparing the Saints to the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans’ quarterback Drew Brees to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. There’s also been a fair amount of debate about which of those quarterbacks should win the Most Valuable Player award

New Orleans Saints fans in the Superdome Terrace wouldn’t want to sit anywhere else

It’s game day in the Who Dat Nation, when club-level ticketholders snuggle into their leather seats in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s lower bowl, gaze up to the tippy-top of the Terrace seating areas and thank their lucky stars that they don’t have to sit THERE.

It’s also when my husband, our crazy Who Dat friends and I scale the stadium steps, stand on our vinyl cheap seats, pound our fists against the metal wall behind the Terrace’s top rows, gaze down to the club-level seats, and thank our lucky stars we don’t have to sit THERE.

This may surprise people who think the Superdome seating areas are basically divided into “first class” and “coach.” But the thousands of diehards who choose to sit closer to the ceiling than the field know what I mean when I say that the upper deck is the screaming, jumping, hugging, foot-stomping, high-fiving, hard-partying heart of the Who Dat Nation.

Saints Tight End Jimmy Graham Grants Christmas Wish After Hearing Teen’s Catchy Tune

Written by: Karie Meltzer

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has won many fans this season. But perhaps none greater than 16-year-old Alex Newman.

The New Orleans native learned about football from her dad when she was only 8, and she was instantly hooked on her home team. Dad also taught her the guitar, and this Christmas, Alex decided to put those skills to use crafting a tribute to her favorite Saint.

Check out her musical chops, with backup vocals provided by little sis Stella:

On Saturday morning, Stella woke her big sister to tell her some big news. The video made its way to Graham, who made sure the girls got tickets to Monday night’s game against the Falcons.

“I still don’t know what to do because I’m in shock,” Alex says. “Nothing like this or even close to this has ever happened and it is the best Christmas present ever.”

No offense to Saint Nick, but this year’s coolest gift came from Saint Jimmy.

Best hands in the NFC South?

By Pat Yasinskas

He’s a backup wide receiver on a losing team. But, at least statistically speaking, Tampa Bay’s Preston Parker has the best hands in the NFC South.

Atlanta Falcons Coach Mike Smith says Saints QB Drew Brees having, “MVP season.”

James Varney, The Times-Picayune

Atlanta Falcons Coach Mike Smith said twice Thursday he believes New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is, “having an MVP season.” Brees, who leads an 11-3 New Orleans against Atlanta this Monday night, could break Dan Marino’s single-season passing yardage record in that game.

Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune
