    Tom Brady is only 10 games behind and should break the record by mid-season next year.

    Drew had an off night but, the Saints O Tackles have to be the worst and have been exposed over these last two games. Saints' O outgained the Falcons by 150 yards and were 7 of 14 on 3rd down. Falcons were 1 of 11 of 3rd down. Ryan was only 18 of 35 for 165 yards. The difference in the game was the Falcons D line vs the Saints O line. Interesting comment of the NFL Network after the game saying that this was the Falcons' Super Bowl. Maybe, maybe not.

    It was a fun game to watch for those of us who don't love or hate either team. It never ceases to amaze me on how momentum plays in football. At one point Atlanta looked unstoppable and was close to going ahaed 21-0, then their offense stalled, their runners who were smoking the Saints O-line were now being stopped for no gain and Ryan coudn't complete a pass. At the same time NO's offense came alive and appeared unstoppable. As they marched down the field at the end of the first half I really thought NO was going to win the game, then Brees blows it by throwing that checkdown and the half ends before he can get a play off, so no points. I really thought that was the play of the game. If they had even scored a field goal there, I think they would have gone on to win.

    Comprehension Fail.

    It's a simple statement of the obvious. Falcons have no reason to play their guts out, they've clinched their Division and don't have a perfect record to keep up so might as well go half throttle which is what they did today.

    Original point fail. If it was so obvious what you were trying to say I might have understood it.

    But what is the Saints excuse this week?

    lol You can make something out of nothing all you want, just don't expect everyone else to read your mind. I can't comment on your ability or lack there of to understand plainly written statements.

    Excuse or Reason? Can you take a logical discussion about it without turning it around? if so here's a try.

    No Defense and 4 Turnovers and the Giants are a much better more consistent team.That's pretty much the reason/excuse of why they lose this game.

    special teams looked a bit weak, they could work on that.
    and in the past they always beat my Giants late in the year.
    so I was expecting the worst. Happy Happy Joy Joy!!
