Hello again, Who Dats & Who Datettes and welcome to the 2020 New Orleans Saints Week 11, Game 10 thread.

The one week I decide to talk about how healthy we are, that happens.

Welp, can't take it back now. The win over the 49ers was as costly to our attrition as any game we've seen lately, and so now we head into the stretch of 2 games in 3 weeks against our most hated rival in the Atlanta Falcons at way less than 100%.

And with Drew Brees now out of the picture for at least the next 3 weeks, it's reportedly Taysom time as Taysom Hill will apparently be given the keys to the Saints offensive castle in the absence of our future hall of fame quarterback. The big question, can Hill duplicate the performance of Teddy Bridgewater from a season ago where Bridgewater went 5-0 as a starter?

Looking at the schedule, you'd think this is as good a time as any for Brees to go down with an ~4-week injury, considering our next 4 opponents are a combined 12-23-1.

But the Falcons are actually trending upward after canning head coach Dan Quinn & GM Thomas Dimitroff following an 0-5 start and the ascension of Raheem Morris to interim head coach, having won 3 out of their last 4, and are only a toe stub & too much forward momentum from having won 4 straight. Plus, while the Saints were getting beat up by the 49ers, the Falcons were sitting at home resting on their bye week.

So undoubtedly this game will depend on if the Saints can slow down the Falcons offense with all of its weapons. The Falcons have the league's 5th best offense in terms of yards per game, 2nd best in passing yards per game, & 18th best in rushing yards per game. Fortunately, the Saints have the league's 4th best defense in terms of yards per game, 15th best in passing yards per game, & 2nd best in rushing yards per game. Can the Saints D line get home to Matt Ryan, who's been sacked 19 times already this season, before Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, & Russell Gage can pop free from the Saints DBs?

Fortunately for our new starting QB, Taysom Hill, he gets to ease into this whole starter thing against the league's 3rd worst defense in terms of yards per game & 2nd worst pass D, though Atlanta does boast the 6th best D in terms of stopping the run, which possibly could be attributed to the passing success teams have against them.

In the important points per game category, on the defensive side the Saints are 12th best while the Falcons are ranked 24th in scoring D. Offensively, the Saints are the 4th best in points per game in the NFL, while the Falcons are 13th in the league in points per game.

It was a very Happy Thanksgiving for the Saints when these 2 teams last played each other, which was on November 28th, week 13 of the 2019 season. The Saints defense sacked Matt Ryan 9 times & Taysom Hill blocked a punt, caught a TD pass, & rushed for a TD as the Saints closed out Thanksgiving Day with a 26-18 win over the Falcons in Atlanta. The win clinched the 2019 NFC South Division Championship for the Saints, the team's third straight division championship.

LET'S SLAY THE DIRTY BIRDS AND MAKE IT SEVEN STRAIGHT WINS!!!!!!!!!!!

OP way too long, mate. While some may appreciate this information overload, I wish that in the future you would please consider leaving the OP blank and then quickly pasting all the junk from what WOULD be your OP into the first reply. This would be much appreciated for those of us who duck in and out of threads and don’t enjoy scrolling for 5 seconds every time we want to reply.

They split the series with the Panthers with Bridgewater under center 23-16 & 25-17 with the road team winning both contest. We got better talent on both side of the ball than Carolina and though Taysom lacks Bress experience, he can make up for it in talent. Last season the Road team won both meetings ATL 26-9 NO-26-18

Lattimore officially out.

Also something to watch, falcons activated a backup QB last night who hasn’t played all year. Ryan or Shaub test positive ?

The talking heads this morning saying internal discussion within the team has some people questioning the Hill start, with many in favor of Winston. I wonder if this is true or just pure speculation on their part. If true Payton would have to of course yank Hill if he is struggling or have some very upset players within that locker room.

Just turned on the ESPN pregame show. Reminds me why I don’t watch this kind of shite. Tedy Bruschi saying he’d be pissed if he was a Saints player that Hill is starting over Winston

This is interesting. I wouldn't complain at all if Ryan were not able to play

On a day the New Orleans Saints are starting a new quarterback in Taysom Hill, sources tell ESPN the Saints defense is going to be without their key CB Marshon Lattimore. I’m told he will not be active against the Falcons.


No Lattimore today, per Russini

With Josh Hill out, did they activate Griffin from the PS?
