This matchup will be filled with a lot of emotion, due to the Saint’s bounty scandaling season while the Atlanta Falcons have truly rised up to the occasion

Week 10 Fantasy Football rankings

I have just one hope: that none of you had Doug Martin on the bench last week. I had Martin ranked 9th, which, come to find out, was just a bit low.  His 251 rushing yards and four touchdowns vaulted him to the number one spot in the running back rankings. Fear the Muscle Hamster. Obviously, Martin can’t duplicate his monster performance this week against San Diego, but the moral...

Atlanta Falcons: Matt Ryan & Co. Chasing Perfection

The '72 Dolphins. Almost the '07 Patriots. Perfection is, and will always be, a headline in the sports world, due to its rarity.For the Atlanta Falcons, currently 8-0, perfection remains an option. But nothing is guaranteed. Last season, the 13-0 Green Bay Packers got clipped by the 5-8 Kansas City Chiefs, when freshly-interim coach Romeo Crennel neutralized Aaron Rodgers...

Falcons LB Stephen Nicholas & Emmanuel Lewis from “Webster” have Cupid Shuffle battle

Check out this video of the former “Webster” star and Falcons Linebacker Stephen Nicholas having a dance battle at the team’s 8th annual Celebrity FootBowl Tournament.     How very “You Got Served.” The [...]

Early in today’s matchup between the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, New Orleans running back Chris Ivory took off on a 56 yard touchdown run.

Muy Frio: Pierre Thomas

They ain’t giving me the ball Juan… Pierre Thomas may be the most all around talented RB on the Saints, who have a ton of talent at RB.  We all thought once Sproles could miss time that Thomas would be an automatic stud RB, right?  Wrong. In the last 2 games since Sproles has been sidelined, Thomas has been non-existent in the game plan.  He has only 11 carries over that...

Saints hand Falcons first loss, 31-27

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints no longer sound like a team in denial when they discuss their refusal to give up on this most unusual of seasons. Perhaps all was not lost when they followed up a scandal-plagued offseason with an 0-4 start. Certainly, the Superdome was packed with reveling believers after tight end Jimmy Graham turned in a career performance and his teammates...

Travian Robertson Should Get More Snaps Against Saints

As the undefeated Falcons march into the Superdome for a match up with the Saints on Sunday a question lingers. How are the Atlanta Falcons going to combat a very relevant and potent Saints aerial attack. The answer lies in one place and that is the interior defensive line. With Peria Jerry’s status in doubt for Sunday the Falcons have a prime opportunity to give their 2012 seventh...
