You mean all those 3 point differential games?
Since 2008, NO has scored 266 points vs. the Falcons and the Falcons have scored 239 points vs. the Saints.
A whopping difference of 27 points between 10 games. Or 26.6 average per game vs. 23.9 average per game.
Considering the Saint's average points scored per game since 2012 is 34.6 and the Falcons is 27.9, I think our defense has played the Saints much better than the Saints have played us during that time period.

Wins versus losses. The ONLY stat that matters.

Oh, well then 47-41. Falcons still up by 6. Leading the series since 1970.

That mushroom cloud bears a strong resemblance to Homey the Clown.

Homey don't play that.

The time frame was referring to Loomis' reign. 11-3. Saints are up by eight.

It appears that Ryan is still on the market.
Rob Ryan won’t be Rams defensive coordinator
Rob Ryan said it would take five minutes for him to land a new job after being fired as the Cowboys defensive coordinator, but the clock’s still ticking and Ryan still doesn’t have a job.
The Rams announced on Twitter Tuesday that Ryan would not be the team’s defensive coordinator in 2013. Ryan was reported to be their choice in early January, something both sides denied, and again last week in a choice that seemed to have more reality behind it. According to the Rams, though, continued discussions with Ryan revealed differences that couldn’t be bridged.
“After extensive conversations regarding defensive philosophy, the Rams and Rob Ryan agreed he was not the right fit for the DC position. The Rams will conitnue the interview process with the club’s other candidates for the defensive coordinator position.”
Ryan ran 3-4 schemes in Dallas and Cleveland while the Rams ran a 4-3 front last season. Whether or not that was the sticking point that made it impossible for the team to move forward with the hire is unclear, but it seems like the likeliest point of conflict. All the focus of their search has focused on Ryan, so we’ll have to see where the Rams go from here.
The Rams did confirm the hiring of one defensive coach. Former Texans defensive coordinator Frank Bush, who was let go by the Titans after the regular season, will be the team’s new linebackers coach.

Two more names being mentioned for the Saints DC position - 49ers' defensive assistants Jim Tomsula and Ed Donatell.
