danfrank: When you see the atrocious defensive numbers, just remember that they could have been way worse had the Iggles and Pack kept trying in the second half. Same goes for the offense, all of the scoring happened when their opponents went into the prevent for the last 30 minutes. So far we've been outscored 50-7 in the first half, and that 7 came on a fluke deflection/fumble for a TD.
jimmythefly: Talk to me about penalties. I'm a casual Seattle fan, and it seemed like that game had a lot of penalties, and several of them were of the "game-changing" variety.I know last week we saw a couple (Tampa/Jets and Greenbay/SF games). Are "game-changer" type penalties kept track of?Also LOL at 5-0 halftime score.

dickfreckle: robsul82: rickythepenguin: Saints have the chance to go to 3-0 with a win,And we'll still be underneath the Falcons! lolEh, look at our red zone efficiency last game and the fact that though TB racked up something like 118 yards in mostly dumbass penalties and the game still came down to the wire. I understand why we didn't rise this week with a panel of bloviating jaggoffs.You know I always think the Falcons are too damn high, but I'm not seeing a big case for us leaping them this early in the season. Ryan's D is still unproven long-term, the Saints have yet to scream a fortyburger with the ease we grew accustomed to, and we have injury issues. I think these guys who get paid to say stupid sh*t (I do it for free) are keeping the Falcons riding on the coattails of last year's record, which even then was overrated IMO.Even though we're not only 2-0 and have commanding tie-breakers, it's too early to move the Saints too far up the list.
