Thursday on Archer and Bell with John Michaels:
The Falcons are on Thursday Night Football tonight on NFL Network tonight facing off against the hated New Orleans Saints, so we finished early at 7:00 tonight.
-ESPN and NFL Network play-by-play analyst Brad Nessler joined us. Brad will be on the call and told us that in order for the Falcons to win they must protect Matt Ryan. He also talked about what makes Sean Payton and Drew Brees such a successful duo.
-Arch had his pre-game conversation with Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan as Matt prepares for tonight's Falcons game. Matt alked about what to expect form the improved Saints defense, and also about playing on a short week.
-With the Falcons having such a rough season, we asked our listeners whether they truly wanted the Falcons to beat the Saints or if they would rather lose for a better draft pick. By a wide margin 63% of the listeners want to beat their heated rival.
