Saints LB Scott Shanle Says Falcons Are 'Like Our Little Brothers'
The New Orleans Saints may be struggling through one of the more depressing seasons in franchise history, but they will always have Week 10. They took down their hated division rival Falcons, giving Atlanta its first loss of the season in the process.
After winning four of five games, the Saints are puffing their chests out again.
"Everybody was ready to let Atlanta know we still own them despite how our year has gone," linebacker Scott Shanle told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports. "It was awesome, man. They thought we were supposed to be scared of them. We're now 11-2 since we got here in '06 against them.
"They're like our little brothers. Deep down they know they can't mess with us even when we are having a down year."
Shanle said the Falcons were messing with former Falcons linebacker Curtis Lofton before the game.
"(Vilma) went and told their coach it was classless and they didn't even say anything," Shanle said. "It set the tone for the day. It was classless and they got what they deserved."
Lofton now thinks he's on the right side of Falcons-Saints. Just don't use the "R" word.
"A rivalry? I wouldn't say so because the Saints always (are) out on top of that," Lofton told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
