#FalconsHateWeek Countdown, Part 5: Game day edition

Posted By on Sun, Sep 7, 2014 at 10:21 AM


Get your coffee and grab your beer. It's gameday.

Let's take a look back at the reasons the Saints could kick the Falcons' asses today, and add a couple more.

First, the Falcons have no answer for Jimmy Graham

That is the sort of thing he's done to them, again and again, and there's no reason to think he won't continue to terrorize them today. Expect something close to another hundred yard day and maybe a faked goal post dunk or two, especially given the fact Kenny Stills has been reported as out for this game, thanks to his injured quad.

Then there's Mr. Kenny Vaccaro, he who stars in the best television commercial of 2014 so far:

With much love to my West Bank friends, let me just say Kenny Vaccaro is the most West Bank Saint I've ever seen who isn't actually from the West Bank.

Next, of course, there's the coaches: Sean Payton vs Mike Smith. We know who has the better end of this battle. It'll be especially interesting to see how Payton's style has evolved now that he's got a full year back post-sabbatical.

Finally, there should be a lot of a richer, meaner, beardier Junior Galette doing this:

Good luck, Matt Ryan.

To that let's add Keenan Lewis, who is actually from the West Bank, which means the Saints' secondary is composed of like half players who are either actually from the West Bank or spiritually from it. The last time we got a really good look at Keenan Lewis, he was shutting down Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson on the road in the playoffs, until he was injured, at which time Jackson immediately began to victimize the Saints' secondary.

Lewis is here and healthy, though, and ready to blanket Atlanta's Julio Jones or Roddy White. Expect whichever Falcon isn't covered by Lewis to have the better fantasy day, if you're into that sort of thing.

Finally, Drew Brees. I don't have to say much about Drew Brees. I'll let him do the talking.

Who dat.
