Falcons v Saints = Iron Bowl?


Somehow I got mixed up in the most fricked up college rivalry and the most fricked up pro rivalry.

Am I the only one that thinks these two rivalrys are starting to hit on par with each other?

Noone cares about the iron bowl. People do care about saints vs falcons.

So i say no.

Maybe not the best, because I still think the Ravens/Steelers is, but It is the closest to a college rivalry. And I say this because of the hatred of the fans to one another. As previously said, it is the most underrated. I'd say it's a top 3 rivalry in the NFL.

uhhhhhhhhhhhh I don't know about that man.

just listen to that trashy Finebaum show. some people actually do take games to seriously.

plus the Saints-Falcons games are always close.

the Iron Bowl has been a joke lately.

A crazy rivalry is not just about being close every game. It helps, but the bigger piece is the drive it gives the players and fans.

Bama stomping Auburn this year does not make them hate us less and it doesnt want them (or us) not care about winning next year. (not sure what this sentence means but am too tired to try to figure it out and fix it)

Rivalries are subjective, but some are obviously bitter and entertaining.

yeah, you're right about some things but the Iron Bowl has a lot more history. It is a bitter in-state rivalry game that a bunch of rubes take too seriously.

Saints-Falcons: not so much. I've been to Iron Bowls and to Saints-Falcons games. the hostility isn't even close, the Iron Bowl wins by a country mile.

Nah, but it's pretty sick. Most underrated in the NFL. For those saying not top-3, name three better. Pittsburgh/Baltimore I'll spot you, but I don't think there are two others in the NFL that clearly outclass it.

Saints are 11-3 since they got Brees/Payton

A little too one sided to be a rivalry

Alabama's 4-2 since getting Nick Saban with a combined score of 190-80. Is that too one-sided to be a rivalry?

While I do support LSU, I don't care too much for college football (at least not as much as NFL). So no, I'm not mad LSU doesn't have a rival.
