Rankings!

According to ESPN, the Saints have the #1 offense (no surprise), ranking 2nd in passing and 7th in rushing. The Saints rank 21st in total defense, 28th against the pass but 5th against the run. Again, no surprise as teams pass for garbage yds trying to catch up.

Here's the surprise... The Atlanta Falcons, (ranked 4th compared to the Saints 7th in the latest ESPN power rankings), have the 17th overall ranked offense, 17th passing and 15th rushing, and the 22nd overall ranked defense, 18th against the pass and 20th against the run. The Saints are clearly a better team according to the statistics, but continue to be seen as a weaker team. I hope this stays this way. The dirty birds will not beat us this year, at home or away, and the Saints are going to win the division going away. GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!!!!!
