    No I haven't, I have always held the notion that on that turf, in that enviroment, Freeney is a beast. Whereas his impact on the game is no where near what it is on the road.

        That was the foremost thing that stood out to me. They will not lose on that turf to any speed based teams, period.

          i don't think they would have beaten the falcons if it wasn't for all the emotion on monday. i don't think they'll make the playoffs but i'd like to be proven wrong.

            The New Orleans Saints play on Momentum Turf, designed to maximize player speed and performance. Also provides stability, traction, and speed, simulating a perfect natural grass. So this is an extremely fast, yet safe playing field

            If anything, players will be faster on our field

              Fixed for accuracy. It played very slow, due to how new the turf was, and I am not the only person who noticed. On monday it was slippery, with many instances where Falcons (Roddy White, Michael Jenkins, Patrick Kerney) and Saints (Reggie Bush) slid.

                Even if this were the case, the Saints playing on the same field would make them slow along with the Falcons. It's not like the Saints players had special shoes on or anything, the field was the same for both teams. People need to stop reaching for reasons we won , as I've heard everything from the field to the game being fixed.

                  First, I have given plenty of credit to your coaching staff and the job they have done with that organization. Secondly, it did play a major factor in the game. The Falcons were a gear higher than the Panthers and Buccaneers, when it comes to team speed. Yet they play a Saints defense that has concerns about team speed and you had Scott Fujita doing what Derrick Brooks couldn't, keep Vick from the edge. You also had Mike McKenzie running step for step with Ashley Lelie. Thomas and McKenzie were exploited by Green Bay's receivers, but the Falcons speedy receivers couldn't get a lick of seperation. As I said, that's a good thing for the Saints, they may sweep all their home games and get into the playoffs, good for them, they deserve a home field advantage after what the NFL did to them last year.

                  As I noted, Reggie Bush wasn't as effective because of the turf, he slipped a couple of times, and didn't make any explosive plays because he couldn't do his usual stop on a dime moves. So it didn't just affect the Falcons, but the Saints team is designed in a way in which they would benefit in a slowed down game. With a big road grading O-Line, big physical receivers, and a physical defense. Playing against a team based off speed on every level.

                    First year coaches really have that big of impact. I can't see them winning the division, and likely missing the playoffs.

                      Acutally, Fred Thomas played great against the Packers and his effort continued against the Falcons. On the other hand, Mike McKenzie was picked apart on several occasions, as he is a gambler, plays the wide reciever instead of the ball and takes bad angles on tackles. Sean Payton had to get in his face often during the game against Greenbay because of his play on the field. He knows McKenzie can be a good corner in this league, he has shown the abilily, Mike just needs to know when to gamble, play the ball and use proper technic. Improvement has been made, as evident against the Falcons and hopefully he keeps an open mind and listens to what the coaching staff is trying to teach.

                      Scott Fujita has always been a fast and underrated Linebacker.

                      How do you know Ashley Lelie was running at full speed? It makes no sense for this field to make slow players fast and fast players slow.

                      And sorry for the misunderstanding, I thought you were trying to make excuses fot Atlanta.
