Since 1967, the Saints and Falcons have squared off eighty-four times.  Eighty-three regular season games and one in post season.  Of those games, Atlanta has claimed forty-five victories to the Saints thirty-nine.

Both teams are tied with four Division Championships each, one Conference Championship each, and one Super Bowl appearance each.

Atlanta leads Wild Card appearances with six to New Orleans four.  The Saints however do have the ultimate one up on the Falcons in Super Bowl Championships.  The Saints have one to the Falcons zero!

Local music artist Abdul D. Tentmaker actually coined a song for the last Falcons game on December 27, 2010.  Abdul sang the song on Saints flagship station WWL after he said that Falcons fans were being ruthless towards the Saints.

He named the song, “It Don’t Mean A Thing If You Ain’t Got That Ring”.  Poetic if I may say so myself.

Of course, poetic justice has been repeated throughout the years with the two teams even swapping players at times.  Three of which are actually still beloved by Saints fans even after their departure.

    It’s hard to even comment on this article, because it always ends up the same way–with me yelling and screaming at da ‘puter screen, “CRUSH, Kill, Destroy! CRUSH, KILL, Destroy!! CRUSH, KILL DESTROY!!!”

    I figure that hell has a special place for fclown fans–right there with politicians, used car salesmen, and Cowboy fans (and maybe vi-queen fans now, too)!

    Your grandmother isn’t the only one whose stomach turned at Bobby “flyin’ his lil plane”, and it turned him into a BUT. You know, “Bobby had a great Saints career & founded WhoDat Nation, BUT I still can’t forget his fclown antics”. Sorta like a cheating spouse–you might forgive, but you can never forget!

    In closing, I do have to say that Drew marching through da fclown defense makes me happy. ;)

    Oh, yeah, “CRUSH, Kill, Destroy! CRUSH, KILL, Destroy!! CRUSH, KILL DESTROY!!!”
