It looks like they're starting their own LSU type of tradition by wearing white at home. Just as well, I always felt that a team with the nickname "Saints" was better off in white.

If they keep playing this well in white, they just might keep doing so.

So we should just change to white at home as the default, since everyone is doing it.

Yeah, it's getting out of hand, isn't it?

Dolphins, Redskins, Cowboys, Saints, Eagles, Texans...anyone else?

IT's early in the season a lot of teams where white early in the season because it's still hot out. The Eagles have done that the last few years the will switch to dark at home in a few weeks. Same thing with the Texans. The other teams you mentioned have traditionally done it. The only new team is the Saints.

Screw that feel-good crap, the Saints are a rival.

The only time I would cheer for them is if a win by them benefits the Falcons in some way.

I won't "screw that feel-good crap," but I will sympathize with your status as a Falcons fan. Home-field advantage in football is real, and this might be one of the most pumped-up crowds in the history of the game. Seems to me that scheduling a divisional game for the reopening of the Superdome is unfair. It would have been better if the Saints were playing the Steelers or the Browns.

So, do Mike Vick's receivers ever catch a ball or what?

You forgot the Panthers and Buccaneers. I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but once you have so many teams wearing white all the time, the novelty kinda wears off.

When this matchup was announced back in March (this was before any other matchup was announced or the schedules were released), I wasn't looking forward to it. I knew this game was going to be extra-hyped. Then it was announced that it would be a Monday night game. Now this return to New Orleans was going to get the entire nation's viewing. (Remember, the "return to New Orleans" was originally set for September 24th.)

That said, the Falcons never put themselves in a position to win. A blocked punt and blocked FG, which are rarities under Joe DeCamillis, perhaps the top Special Teams coach in the NFL. Dropping passes by normally sure-handed receivers. Continually running the ball on 3rd-and-long situations. The WR's weren't making the DB's work.

The Saints came to play tonight, kudos to them.

While tonight was more of less feeding of the emotion of the crowd the Saints look pretty good. Signing Brees as QB and having Bush fall into their lap along with having McAllister and they have a pretty good attack. I'm not going to say they are a playoff team because they haven't played anyone before tonight and tonight was one of those atmosphere games. They need to prove they are playoff team to me. That said they will be right there and can do some damage. They are heading in the right direction after going backwards for a few years.

In looking at the schedule they have Carolina and Tampa up next. They win those games they will be as good as in as they would be 3-0 in the division at that point. They win one of those 2 games they can be talked about as a possible playoff team.

Dear Reggie Bush,

We're happy that you're fitting in with your new team, and finding your feet. The yards are even starting to pile up, which is terrific. But would you please start scoring some touchdowns? I don't mean to sound impatient, but it would really help us out.

Sincerely,

The Winnipeg Wildfire

...and on topic, it was terrific to see this element of New Orleans life get back to normal, somewhat. Unfortunately, my fear would be with all the outward and visible elements of N'awlins getting back in order, there will be a reduction in the already very limited attention devoted to the very serious problems that persist there, physical and otherwise.
