I lived there for awhile, had a great time doin Tipatina's whenever Galactic was playin live. The crime, dirt, and puke is all that city is underneath though. They were barely clinging to making progress before Katrina hit. It sure as hell isnt going to recover now. It's one of the laziest cities in the US.

TB was our biggest rival because of all the talk that went back and forth between Jenkins and Sapp back in the day, I think the Falcons will eventually be our biggest rival because they are so close.

ATL vs NO is really one the few games I watch of our division rivals that's worth watching.
Sidenote: Carolina vs Atlanta is the biggest rivalry in my opinion. Nothing like the I-85 rivalry.

Now that his vengeance is gone, the Saints whupped us pretty good last season. I think that renewed the rivalry.

F the Saints. They took our basketball team.
Yeah, that worked out well for them.

I swear to God I never heard anyone give a poo about the saints till the super bowl win.
Everyone always gets riled up when its
atl vs car
car vs tb
tb vs atl
When it comes to saints its like
fuging brilliant opinion....how did you deduce this jewel of information?
True our own teams rivalry is less with the Saints then the other two teams in our division. That just seems to be because we usually killed the Saints when we played them. Now they are the team to beat in the South and we are terrible. Both teams seem to choose to be bad when the other is good and visa versa. When that changes the rivalry will spur on and I will look forward to it.
That saying I lived with a Saints fan and he hates the Falcons. Calls them the Fallc-u-n-t-s. The Saints vs Falcons rivalry is long, its just not that well observed because the Saints and Falcons franchises overall have been pretty sad. Not until Sean Payton and Drew Brees have showed up has the team be constantly competitive over a number of years.

I realize how stupid this is, but I just can't take them seriously. Yes, I know they won the SB recently, but I think I'll always think of N.O. as a Detroit-like team. Like, it's cute when they win...not intimidating.
I mean no disrespect to you or any of your fellow fans, but are you guys aware of your history? You speak as if you have a history of dominance like the 49ers of old, the Steelers, or the Cowboys of the 90s. Your overall record since 1995 = 119 - 137, with no SB wins. You've had 4 winning seasons, none of them back to back. But you can't take us seriously? It's cute when we win?
1995 - 7-9
1997 - 7-9
1998 - 4-12
1999 - 8-8
2000 - 7-9
2001 - 1-15
2002 - 7-9
2003 - 11-5
2004 - 7-9
2005 - 11-5
2006 - 8-8
2008 - 12-4
2009 - 8-8
2010 - 2-14
To be honest, if you look at the history of all 4 teams in the NFCS, none of us should be talking about each other's history - collectively, we've been pretty terrible overall until this past decade, and even then, we continue to swap division winners.
BTW - this dominance over the Saints.... your team leads the series 17-15.
Finally, many of us Saints fans have long tired of the Katrina angle forced upon everyone by the media - but they (the media) continue to perpetuate that, so....
