  1. If the offense subs then the defense is allowed to sub.
  2. It was not done on purpose. It's just the way things shake out. The Falcons aren't the only team that has to play teams coming off their byes or extra rest. So sick of folks on here acting like the NFL is the boogy man that is out to screw the Falcons every change they get. It's silly talk.
  3. I didn't underestimate the Chargers. I knew it wouldn't be an easy game. I didn't understand all the "Falcons have an easy opponent" talk all week. The AFC West division is the real deal. Before the season started I predicted all 4 teams in the division to win at least 9 games this year. That being said, my issue is losing after being up 27-10 including having a 10-point lead in the 4th quarter. I don't care who you're playing, its inexcusable to lose that game.
  4. Patience is hard for folks and I get that. I said some stupid stuff yesterday but I'm fine. I'm over it. Hopefully they learn from yesterday and it makes us better moving forward. That's all I can hope for.
  5. Freeman got hit by more than 1 man.
  6. Alright. I'll let you believe what you want to believe.
  7. I hadn't seen that statement because I have avoided all NFL stuff since the game ended. But he's wrong. There was no chance in **** that the play called had any chance of success. You can't be serious? Go back and look at the play formations and tell me how the play was suppose to be successful when the Chargers had the perfect defense called to defend a run play to that side of the field?
  8. Theme song for the Falcons? HeIl that's the theme song of my life.
  9. Exactly. In the words of Belichick "we're on to Green Bay."
  10. Yeah I saw that play and just couldn't believe it. A guy that big making that kind of play. Wow.
  11. Yep. I was surprised they didn't call it. But that's not the only time false starts by tackles are missed in obvious passing situations like that. It happens quite a bit.
  12. Right. I was actually kind of sticking up for Quinn by bringing up Belichick. I know that the Quinn haters are out in full force right now.
  13. Dan Quinn's decision to go for it smelled of the same decision Bill Belichick made back years ago against the Colts because his defense couldn't stop Peyton. Well it didn't work then and it didn't work now.
  14. Oregon would be a good fit for him because of the way he likes to play football and because the expectations are now way down like they were back before Mike Bellotti build them into a power house. BTW, I had no idea Rich Brooks was coach there before Bellotti took over. Rich Brooks posted a losing record in his time at Oregon but was coach there for 18 years. Must have never had any expectations of ever winning anything in football to keep a coach around for 18 years who never won more than 6 games in a season until his 13th year on the job. I mean are you flipping serious? That wouldn't even fly at South Carolina.
  15. So because he's 25 that means he's too old to figure it out? The Braves could trade Folty and have him become the next Arrieta then you'd be bitching about how the Braves gave up on him too quickly before seeing if the new pitching coach could help Folty put it all together. This whole "he's 25 and he is what he is" thought is beyond my comprehension. Jake Arrieta Age 24-27 Seasons - 5.23 ERA, 4.75 FIP, 1.428 WHIP Age 28-30 Seasons - 2.42 ERA, 2.72 FIP, 0.973 WHIP Randy Johnson Age 24-28 Seasons - 3.95 ERA, 3.96 FIP, 1.428 WHIP Age 29-40 Seasons - 2.78 ERA, 2.69 FIP, 1.077 WHIP Curt Schilling Age 21-27 Seasons - 3.55 ERA, 3.40 FIP, 1.234 WHIP Age 28-37 Seasons - 3.25 ERA, 3.05 FIP, 1.074 WHIP John Smoltz Age 21-28 Seasons - 3.53 ERA, 3.54 FIP, 1.237 WHIP Age 29-41 Seasons - 3.03 ERA, 2.97 FIP, 1.113 WHIP Nolan Ryan Age 19-24 Seasons - 3.58 ERA, 3.59 FIP, 1.398 WHIP Age 25-44 Seasons - 3.11 ERA, 2.88 FIP, 1.226 WHIP Kevin Brown Age 21-29 Seasons - 3.81 ERA, 3.71 FIP, 1.369 WHIP Age 30-38 Seasons - 2.70 ERA, 2.99 FIP, 1.093 WHIP I could keep going but I think I've made my point. It takes hard throwing pitchers more time to figure it out than it does guys that are control pitchers. Many of those pitchers figured it out after they were given up on my one team, some of them by multiple teams. Sure, Folty could easily end up being a guy that always flashes but never puts it together or he could eventually put it together under the guidance of the right pitching coach and take off and become the stud Ace the Braves desperately need. Trading him at age 25 for a catcher who's making $17M per season with quickly declining skills makes absolutely no sense. Add in the fact that the Braves are not a playoff team in 2017 and it makes even less sense.
