Saints Drew Brees Expects Another Tight Contest With Falcons
What a way for the Falcons to kick off their season this weekend. They play their biggest rival in the New Orleans Saints. The last time these two clubs hooked up in the Georgia Dome, a worker at the Atlanta airport egged the Saints team bus. Saints quarterback Drew Brees expects another raucous atmosphere in the Big Easy, and he also expects another roc'em-soc'em contest. "I know we put up a stat today that said seven of our ten games with the Falcons since Mike Smith has been the head coach have been decided by the last possession. 7 out 10. Just goes to show you the type of battle this always is with these guys. Just the fact they're a really good team, and we're a really good team. That's a recipe for a very highly competitive, highly intense atmosphere. So that's what I find you always get with this game."
