Fact: the egg came before the chicken
The Times Picayune's Jeff Duncan is reporting that the Saints charter bus is under attack - by eggs and disgruntled airport workers. Awesome!
Before you freak out, realize it's all in good fun. And let's be honest, this is the coolest thing a group of Falcons fans have done in a very long time. Mad props to those folks.
In any case, the message is clear. Any game against the Saints is an important game. It is a rivalry, and they've kicked our collective butts in recent history. Even so, the Saints are one game from playoff exile, and we have the best record in the NFL. Last time I checked, playoff success is all that matters. We've learned that lesson the hard way. To that effect, I'm fairly sure you can't be successful in the playoffs if you aren't in the playoffs. Enough said.
Watch out! It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's a gaggle of Falcons fans chucking eggs at a crappy defense!
