  1. At that point, I think you have to do what Dan Quinn has done: embrace it. Embrace the Suck. Yeah, it happened, and it will always be there. That being said, if we come back and win a super bowl and dominate like we know we can, it flips that narrative. Instead of being the team that blew a 28-3 lead, we are the team that suffered the most humiliating super bowl loss, ever, and then came back from it and won. The old falcons liked to find reasons and excuses to not win. These Falcons are made of sterner stuff.
  2. I won't lie...this is the hardest off-season I have ever endured as a Falcon's fan...and I have seen a few. Ever since I put my 45 Falcons Fever record on, I have been a fan. Steve Bartkowski, Billy White Shoes Johnson, Willie Andrews...then Chris Miller, Deon, Rison...there was some good in there, and definitely more bad. I have watched this team find incredible ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but this Super Bowl...this was the hardest. It almost broke me, which is saying a lot considering how much I have suffered as a loyal, long time fan. But as Hemingway wrote, the sun also rises. It took some months before I could look at anything falcons related, but I can now. Even the 28-3 comments from rivals and calling us chokers has stopped making me emotional. Because when it is all said done, the journey counts also, some would say more than the end result. we were not supposed to be what we became. And one quarter does not erase everything else we accomplished. MVP...NFC Champions...a historic offense...a coaching staff capable of making in game adjustments. Fundamental football...good tackling...a growing defense. So yeah, when saints fan talk all sorts of smack and show their super bowl ring...that's ok, hold onto those memories little guy, it's all you got, while my QB actually has an MVP trophy. When Carolina fans start taunting us, that's ok blue, how is that quest to have back to back winning seasons coming? When Tampa fans start giving us crap, that's ok Pirate Bay, how many head coaches have you had in the last 8 years? How many times have you sold out that stadium lately? we had a great, historic season, and the future looks bright, really, really bright. We didn't take steps back, we went forward this offseason, because mediocrity and failure is not acceptable to our coach, our GM, our owner, our organization. So if you are still hurting, it's ok. But the reset button has been pushed, and we are ready to do more great things. Let go of that anger and disappointment and hurt, follow the example of our team. There is no feeling sorry for yourself. Rise the f*** up and let's get ready to do this!!! If we can survive what happened, arguably the worse loss a team has ever suffered, we can survive anything. And all those pieces of garbage that dismiss and taunt us, guess what...none of them want to play us this season. We are coming for the NFL and all it's pretenders. The NFL has been put on notice.
  3. The Patriots have been a powerhouse team for a long time. There is nothing wrong with acknowledging that. The Falcons have not been. Nothing wrong with acknowledging that either. We were coming off of 3 straight seasons of non winning season football. We were not supposed to be there, and it took miracle like circumstances for them to come back and win. It's ok...90 plays on offense against our defense will do that. They won, we lost, it was an epic comeback, it is what it is. the fact is, their window is closing, ours is wide open. The fact that there are patriot fans still here means they know this, and the insecurity they feel is based on an uncertain future. our star is as ascendant as it gets in the NFL, theirs is descending. They want to attack us, to make us feel like crap, because they know soon they won't be able to do that anymore, the same way Saints fans still hang onto their Super Bowl despite the past four years of 7-9 ball. All they will have is history soon, while last year was us spreading our wings and learning to fly. All this disrespect and attitude towards us will just serve to do one thing-focus us and make us better. Last year, we were not supposed to be there. This year, it is ours, we believe it is ours and god help you if you are in our way. No mercy for anyone, we will smash them on the jagged edge of furious resolve. So ignore these trolls, they mean less than nothing. They are nothing. And when the 7th game of the season is over, they will slink away to their festering, oozing holes of their self righteous history, because that's the only solace they will be able to find. They are neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm, and as such we will spit them from our mouth. We are coming, and h ell is coming with us.
  4. To echo what everyone else is saying, get used to this type of drafting, especially when we are picking 32nd.
  5. Because you guys played who again? Who was that? Nobody?? ok, stfu then. There is no game your team has played that should give you any modicum of confidence. Pretty sure you never even played a top 15 scoring defense. You sure as hell didn't play a top 15 scoring offense. gtfo with your weak sauce. I dismiss your dumba.ss and banish you back to the cheating purgatory of bellicheckidom...
  6. Give the Falcons the Patriots schedule this year and they are undefeated. You guys didn't play a top ten qb except Russell Wilson, and he trounced you at your own stadium. And of course an unimpressive Pittsburgh team with Big Ben. Other than that, you feasted on the likes of Tannyhill and Ostweiler. If you guys had the Falcons schedule you are 8-8...bank it.
  7. What a fkn tool this pat fan is...did you really use that weak a ss hit to try to show how physical your safety is?? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.., go back and watch the falcons/packers game and watch how many passes the sure handed packers tight end drops after he gets early on by Keanu Neal. Your hard hit you showed makes us yawn. But that's ok, because your dink and dunk offense is going to give our head hunters plenty of good shots to take. Green Bay and Seattle found out the hard way that we are much more physical as a team than anyone gives us credit for. Hell, you should have seen how many packers players were getting blasted and taken out. You guys have played a powder puff schedule. You won't have that luxury Sunday..
  8. I was pleased with the article. It showed real growth. For those that let it effect them negatively, well, that's on you. Vick has probably saved 100x more dogs than he ever hurt with his work after he was released. If the Humane society can have him as a spokesperson and his story bring light to the abuses that exist, then how can you still hate him? So many more people know about the evils of dog fighting now because of his story that brought light to it, and it's no longer swept under the rug. I would actually say Vick has probably done more to advance the cause of stopping that evil practice than anyone else, ever.
  9. I'm sorry you can't let go. None of us lead mistake free lives, and everyone has stuff they wished they had done differently/handled differently. Being a human being is about personal growth and learning. I hope you grow and let go of past anger and grudge.
  10. The people who cannot find forgiveness in their hearts is who I pity. Vick did his time, and will always have a place in Falcons history, good and bad, no matter how much you don't want him too.
  11. He looks like Nicholas Cage in the pic with the Falcons hat...
  12. He doesn't, his wife is doing a college transfer for two years and he is in the Shenzhen province. The american hotel might be a good idea...I don't think the US has any bases in china though...
  13. Who really wants to see the Falcons win the Super Bowl. Any ideas on how he can see the game there??
  14. I am thinking about Neal also...Or Deon Jones...Or Vic Beasley....I don't know, someone on the **** defense
  15. A little less confident than I was about Seattle/Green Bay...but I do think we win...just not quite as dominant. I don't feel New England has been tested much this year, except by Seattle which beat them in Foxboro. they definitely haven't played anyone like us. They have the experience edge, but we have the hunger edge, and that hunger edge will take you far. As Dan Quinn says, we will "Arrive Violently" in Houston...
