Hey there Saints fans! I've seen several comments from a variety of places talking about how the Saints may have trouble matching up against the Falcons, especially without Reggie. I've also heard more than a few media pundits mention how hard it is to play a Monday night game on the West Coast, then face a tough opponent the following week. Here is why I don't think that will be too much of an issue. The Falcons have gone 1 and 1 against two teams that never tested their defense. Everyone knows about the Saints offensive weapons--Drew Brees, Pierre Thomas, and our talented group of receivers and tight ends. Join me after the jump for some non-football related weapons that the Saints may have in their favor against Atlanta.
New Orleans has the benefit of the whole voodoo/Marie Laveau thing going on--"Dirty Bird can't fly with a broken wing," right?
Our lovely local New Orleans women can always find ways to distract a visitor.
The Falcon's hotel could offer the team a night on Bourbon street, and their players show up at the dome hung over.
Oh...and our spicy cajun foods can cause all kinds of gastric distress to folks from out of town.
GUESS THEY PUT TOO MUCH TABASCO IN THE RED BEANS!!
Can I get a Who Dat??!
