One week Julio Jones has 252 receiving yards and two touchdowns.  The next week he has one reception for 13 yards.  This game could go either way, depending on whether Atlanta's offence shows up or not.

Saints will prevail. Atlanta is really good, when they want to be, and other times they are anything but. The Saints always bring their A-Game, win or lose, though, and I don't see them getting beaten by a team as inconsistent as Atlanta is.

I expect comments eerily similar to these two when the Steelers play the Patriots.

Go Football!

I think the Saints punch their ticket with a win today.  Not by the numbers, just figuratively.  Of course I am a homer.  I also think they're very well set up for a long playoff run.  Saints are no longer a one-trick pony.

I sure hope we can do it, on the road yet aaaaaaaaaaagain for a Thursday night game, all banged up and shiat....but hey, I have faith and the game prep is on!

I think the Saints are the better team here, but man Julio Jones is a beast.

That thing behind the NFLN desk doesn't look like a falcon. Looks like some sort of mutant pelican.

Soon.  Just as last week the message was puck the fanthers, tonight it is fark the falcons!

Wait.

Had to make a hard choice for one of my  FFL team in playoffs, Matty or Breesus tonight.  Going with Drew, It's Rob's fault if he f*cks up.
 
2017-12-07 08:10:48 PM  
My expectations are really low for the FAILcons to perform at home on a short week.

Bomani Jones says the Saints because if you have money on the Falcons, they are guaranteed to lose at home, because they are the Flalcons.

Well, they're at home on a Thursday, healthier than we are right now....but Zac Brown is singing the national anthem, and they're 0-7 when he sings the anthem, or so I read on Twitter.

So we got that going for us, which is nice.

OHHAIGUIZE!

So, before I forget...back to SNF's discussion. I said I would, so here:

I'm stupid lucky. This is pretty much always fully stocked in my kitchen at work. For free.

It doesn't show the fridge stuff, or the counter off to the right with the Keurig and a full slate of flavored coffees & teas. Plus there's usually at least one baked or otherwise home-made item up for grabs (they just finished my last cheesecake slice today), and there's our marketing assistant's first try at angel cake in the foreground.

This is the OTHER reason I need to make damn sure I keep up with my daily & weekly exercise routine!


Oh, so...anyways, I picked the Aints tonight. I have no reason to have any faith in the FAILcons whatsoever, and Breesus is still Breesus. It'll be a bad night at the nest in the GoatseDome

 Anyone who follows this (and other) rivalries knows that stats/record are virtually meaningless come game time. Add that Atlanta is backed into a corner and this Saints fan is a nervous.

 I'm curious to see how Lattimore matches with Jones given that he's still dinged up. Am just happy to have both of our better corners back, bc you all saw how the Rams carved it up in their absence.

Yep.  They're playing for their whole season tonight, better off injurywise, at home, and it's a rare thing that it's ever a comfortable win or even a blowout win, no matter if the teams are roughly even or one or the other is vastly better.  They're almost always close.  Nailbiting time...

 That's a great looking spread you have access to, but where's the booze? Don't tell me you work in one of those crazy places that frown on drinking...

Oh, no. We are a booze and food service company. There's booze in pretty much every cabinet & closet in the place.

There's just not a lot of drinking during the day, mostly. The later folks, some, but the day shift is pretty laid back with it.

I mean, I drink more beer than 2 or 3 normal people, but I don't start until like 8 at night when I know I'm done for the day, dont' need to drive any where, etc etc

I had the entire game muted, so I'm not sure how bad it was.

It was Chucky and Mr  Milquetoast. It pretty much HAD to be terrible. Expecting something else would be like diving into a pool and expecting to not get wet

The commentariat has been playing it up all week because of the do-or-die nature of the game for the Falcons. Last year's NFC champions having to scramble to even make the playoffs and all that sort of thing.
