  5. Super Bowl LI: #1 New England Patriots vs #2 Atlanta Falcons--NRG Stadium, Houston, TX Here we are guys. A season for the ages comes to a conclusion in just a couple of hours. Few expected us to make it this far on such short notice, especially considering all that transpired in the 2015 season. Nevertheless, the team came together and accomplished great things this season and managed to galvanize the city of Atlanta behind their #InBrotherhood mantra. This will only be the second Super Bowl appearance in the Atlanta Falcons' 51 year history, the first coming 18 years ago under head coach Dan Reeves (a Georgia native) in 1998. Obviously much has changed since then, but the goal remains the same, and hopefully this time the journey ends with the Vince Lombardi Trophy going to Atlanta for the first time. RISE UP!
  6. I've been a Falcons fan all of my life, but I just wanted to start a thread on how the Falcons got here and try and share some past videos about the subject. I must say, I sure wish there was a link to some of the old "FREDDY COUGH COUGH MAC SHOW" Videos we used to be able to see. Those were AWESOME! If they are available to watch here at Atlantafalcons.com I just don't see them anywhere. This is an appreciation thread through video idea is what I am getting at to share and let others see how the Falcons got here from the start. Here's an OLD SCHOOL video I found that I thought some of my fellow Falcons fans might like watching, I miss this show. Here's another Falcons Old School Video, Deon Sanders with the MC Hammer tune 2 legit 2 quite! The Great Morten Anderson,
  7. I mixed the old with the new. Wutcha think?
  8. There's Secured parking 3 blocks away with Shuttle Service for $35 if anyone's interested and can't find parking. They will drop you off and pick you up. That number is 678-538-7979 spaces are limited, call so maybe it can be reserved. I think it's a little more for the Super Bowl and I heard that there's Free Beer w/ parking.
  9. If anyone wants to come out and tailgate for the Playoff game let me know.
  10. Article By: Luke Kerr-Dineen | December 28, 2016 12:08 pm Outside perhaps the Dallas Cowboys, there’s really only one team to beat in the NFL. It’s become such a common refrain in recent years that’s it’s borderline boring at this point, but it’s still true. Even without Gronk, even with a 39-year-old Tom Brady, the New England Patriots are the best team in the NFL. But the NFL playoffs aren’t there to sort out the best team. If you truly wanted to do that, you’d scrap them altogether, or you’d follow the lead of the NBA and adopt a seven game series. i CLOSE POWERED BY GIANTMEDIA No, the playoffs reward the best team on the night. It’s why the 16-0 Patriots can lose to the Giants, and the 15-1 Panthers can do the same against the Broncos. And it’s why, if the superior Patriots find themselves up against the Falcons this post-season, they could find themselves in some trouble. Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports It’s pretty simple: From the start 2014 season, including post-season games, the New England Patriots have lost just 11 games (let that sink in for a second). Two of its losses were meaningless week 17 games and another was that weird 16-0 Jacoby Brissett game earlier this season. Throw out those three outliers; the sheer number of points the Pats score stays relatively similar between the wins and losses. New England posts an average of just over 21 points in its losses, and about 30 points in its wins. It’s a swing of about a touchdown, but when you’re talking about tough battles against legitimately good teams — like the Seahawks, Chiefs and two against the Broncos — it’s not overly surprising. The biggest swing comes on the defensive side of the ball. In its wins, the Patriots restrict teams to an average of just over 16 points (again, let that sink in). When it loses, though, the team’s average number of points allowed spikes all the way to more than 30. It’s a hugely disproportionate swing. The formula for beating the Pats — if there is one — is not in trying to restrict their offense, but rather cracking them open on defense. Looking around the 2016 NFL playoff picture, and factoring-in Derek Carr’s devastating injury, there’s only one team best-equipped to do that. Which brings us to the Atlanta Falcons. GETTY This is not to disparage the great offensive play going on in Dallas right now, but even the most ardent Cowboys fan would admit that Atlanta’s offense is on another level. Atlanta score more points per game than any team in the NFL, and of teams involved in the playoffs, it’ll come in with the highest number of offensive yards, average yards per game, and expected points per game. They’ve done it all facing the toughest schedule in the league, and as ESPN’s Bill Barnwell notes, it’s good enough to rank them “in the 99th percentile of offenses since the AFL-NFL merger of 1970.” Teams can’t beat the Pats at their own game. As the league’s other best teams, notably the Seahawks, struggle to put up points and hope its defense carries them through, the Atlanta Falcons offer something totally different. They’re one dimensional in the extreme, and while that may hold them back in the early stages of the playoffs, it also might give them just what they need to pick New England’s lock. And in one, do-or-die game, that’s all you need.
  11. Hey all, After nearly six years living in Atlanta, I'm finally going to my first Falcons game this weekend. Our group of four consists of a die-hard Falcons fan, a die-hard Chiefs fan, and those fans' wonderfully benevolent wives. We'd love to either have our own tailgate or join someone else's, if possible. Any recommendations? Best lot(s) to park in? Arrival time? Booze rules? Fun tailgates to attend if we decide against having our own? Fees? Appreciate it! Best, P-Man
  12. Hey guys I'm going to be stuck at work getting some much needed OT, but I will not be around my TV at 4 for the game today. I can usually str3am the game on my laptop, but without an internet connection , it looks like I will be forced to listen to the game on the radio. Which brings me to my question: What apps would work on my iPhone 5s that would pick up the game today? I can listen on my headphones and get all the work done I need, but I haven't listened to the radio in ages. And I don't even know what station will broadcast the game. Thanks ahead of time Falcons Family, and Rise up!
  13. http://atlantasportspage.org/falcons-vs-packers-preview/ Our score prediction is 30-24 Falcons, what's yours? #RiseUp

  15. So, another loss that somehow did not feel like it should have been one. But instead of spending the evening with coming up with new swear words for the officials, this time I'm just tired. Not because it's now 2 AM over here, but because this loss, again, feels so .. unnecessary, for a lot of reasons. Some random things that cross my mind and that I need to get of my chest: 1) Just to get it out of the way, I wanna adress this first: Again, there was a fundamental lapse in referee performance during a crucial moment in the game, again to the disadvantage of Julio Jones. And again, I've heard the followong reasoning for not throwing the flag: "As an official, you do not want to be the one to decide the game, so you rather not throw a flag there. You want the players to be able to decide it." But if a foul was comitted, a player was prevented from being able to decide to game. If you do not throw the flag there, you are actually deciding the game for the players. It's throwing the flag that allows the players to decide the game. Last time I checked, no points were awarded for fouls, so the players still have to score. Make them line up again and give players of BOTH teams the opportunity to get it right. 2) Overall, Shanny called a good game again. But the 3rd and 4th down call in OT I just cannot get on board with. The QB sneak was as predictable as cheap shots in New Orleans, and our Oline had had enough breakdowns in their perfomance (in the 2nd half of this game) to be at least somewhat hesitant of going all in on a strech run. Also not even trying a freeze call left me a bit unsatisifed with how the game-deciding two downs were handled. However, I completely agree with going for it. SD would probably have marched 200 yrds in that drive after the turnover. 3) This game, the O-Line was the biggest single culprit and a main factor in the offense just scoring 3 points in the second half. Three. There is no more explicit way of telling the other team, "Please beat us!"... except maybe comitting stupid penalties. And they excelled in that, too. I am not gonna complain if you are giving up sacks and pressure to guys like Bosa, or Von Miller. The other guys get paid, too, and if you expect to shove everybody around 24/7 with them just turning over, you are in for a rude awakening. But comitting two dead-ball fouls in a row, in a drive that could have put the game away for us, just wakes the impression that your head is not in the game. Especially if it happens at home. 6 penalties on the o-line, that is unacceptable and negates the real good job they have been doing. 4) Something positive for a change: My freaking god, I do not want to be a ballcarrier - or receiver - in the vicinity of Keanu Neal. The guy hits like he can just pick up a new body once this one has broken down, and straight up punishes ballcarriers. it's been like what, four? games, and he is already a presence. Playing safety myself, I just love watching him. Same goes for Deion Jones. So that's just my two cents on today, feel free to disagree / discuss. At the beginning of the year, I thought of this as a 9-7 team. But after seeing how we lost, I can not help but feeling that, should it result in such a record (or worse), the team did more to lose than the others did to win. It's 2:44 AM now, so I think I'm gonna wrap things up here. Oh and btw, it's nice to be back
  16. In the lead-in for NFL turning point, they teased Russell Wilson "miked up" on the sidelines and he said (quote): "This guy is the real deal" while gesturing at the tablet. So who was he referring to? During the actual show they spent all the time talking about Richard Sherman et al and never mentioned this again. Just wondering which Falcon is the "real deal" according to Wilson.
  17. Tell us how you'll feel - but don't use words - use an image, emoji, or symbols. I have a couple that speak my thoughts if that "happens" again: and
  18. Amidst all the negativity today, thought I'd share this article which made me smile: The Saints' Future Is Almost Here, And It's Bleak http://deadspin.com/the-saints-future-is-almost-here-and-its-bleak-1786616482?utm_campaign=socialflow_deadspin_facebook&utm_source=deadspin_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow Let me just say Here's a cut / paste : The only reason the Saints cut C.J. Spiller yesterday and not before the season was because they literally could not afford to release him. A solid example of this franchise’s failed acquisitions and questionable salary cap tactics, Spiller’s contract now heads to the expensive graveyard of botched Saints moves, and their ghosts are going to haunt this team for a while to come. The Saints have been in salary cap **** for a while, but I hadn’t realized quite how bad it had gotten. Spiller had no place in New Orleans—his first season had been shortened by injury, and even when he was healthy and Mark Ingram went down, he never quite earned the trust of Sean Payton enough to see significant action. The Saints tried to trade him in camp, and, finding no takers, listed him sixth on a six-man RB depth chart and as a healthy inactive for Week 1. Spiller was doomed, but the Saints were so tight up against the cap, they couldn’t physically take on his dead cap money this year and next, not until they reworked Drew Brees’s contractto free up some space. The Spiller signing was another disaster for this front office. He earned a guaranteed $9 million for just 70 touches, and his cap hit remains on the books: $4.5 million this season, $2.5 million next. It’s part of a pattern. The Saints top the league—by far—in “dead money,” the amount of cap space taken up by players who aren’t on this team any more. ESPN’s Mike Triplett wades through the muck: Lewis, Spiller, and Browner all will have cap hits into next season, meaning the Saints are already starting 2017 at a disadvantage. This is business as usual around here: A series of poor signings, which is understandable, and short-sighted cap management, which is less so. For years now, the Saints’ have been in win-now mode, spending every possible dollar each season as long as Drew Brees remains effective. That’s a defensible strategy—QBs like Brees don’t come along often—but there is going to be **** to pay. To remain competitive, the Saints are constantly getting creative with contracts to free up immediate cap space, at the expense of putting off the piper. This too is a legitimate strategy—the Patriots are masters of it, tweaking Tom Brady’s contract every couple of years. But the Patriots are winning. The Saints are pairing short-sighted cap management with a low hit rate on their signings. There is nothing good happening here. The 2016 Saints season was one that began with a handicap thanks to previous contract trickery. Brees entered the season with a $30 million cap hit, six million dollars higher than that of any other NFL player. It was the price of clearing cap space in a previous year. But rather than bite that bullet now, they’ve again put it off for another day. Brees signed what is functionally a one-year contract extension through 2017, but its key is that technically, it’s a five-year deal. Those three years after 2017 are fake, basically—the contract will be voided or reworked before they arrive. But they have the benefit of allowing the Saints to spread out Brees’s cap hit across the breadth of the deal. So his $30 million cap hit for 2016 becomes a manageable $17 million, and $19 million in 2017. (This is the same salary cap math that had NHL teams signing guys to 17-year frontloaded contracts to spread out their cap hits, a practice that got so out of hand the loophole was promptly closed.) Brees is 37 years old and may not have another contract in him after the Saints void this one following the 2017 season. Whenever he does leave, via retirement or in free agency, the back end of his current contract doesn’t just disappear. It will become dead money, $18 million of it, and it will hit the Saints’ cap all at once. The Saints have been kicking a few different cans down the road, but that road only goes so far. When the Brees era is over, the reckoning will be grim and the rebuilding will be hamstrung by the deferred sins of the past. For all the weaknesses the Saints roster currently has, this is as good as it’s going to be a for a while.

  20. I am so sick and tired of hearing about The Atlanta Seahawks defense. Ever since DQ has stepped foot in the Falcons facility, our defense has been known as the second coming of the Seahawks D. I mean that is what is expected, it is very apparent that we are no where near as solid on D as they are but I digress. I wished that every news outlet that begins a sentence about our D always starts out " you know DQ is trying to bring the D he put together in Seattle, down to the dirty south" or something along those lines. Every time we sign a player, draft a player, anything to do with a player who plays a lick of D, we are doing it because that is what DQ is trying to do, get fast and physical, just like he had in SEATTLE. "Oh Keanu Neal, perfect fit for the Falcons and that D DQ is trying to build, similar to the one in Seattle". I am just over it completely, I don't know if other Atlanta fans feel the same way, but I want to throw up every time I hear it. So, you can imagine I want to throw up a lot. I just want to say WE are the ATLANTA FALCONS and we are just that. We are no one else but ourselves. I want that to be the case however, as long as DQ is the head coach we will always be known as the Seattle Falcons. Also, I am not hating on DQ I think that he is a good coach. I like his intensity. Hopefully in year 2 he can take even a bigger step forward. He took a last place D and turned it into a mediocre D, (That's a pretty good turn around in my book). Really looking forward to this season. I read the forums other people post being over critical of Vic Beasley. I am a big advocate of getting him with our 8th pick but if you don't think he has lived up to his potential then I believe you are right. There are not many DE's that come into the league straight out of college and dominate. His learning curve may be a little steeper than previously anticipated however, I think that in the long run he will become a very good pass rusher. I mean JJ Watt only had 5.5 sacks his rookie year. PUMP YOUR BRAKES I'm not saying he is another JJ Watt. I am just saying, feel me. This year I predict that we CAN be a 10-6 team, but then again depending we CAN ALSO be a 6-10 team. I think that everything hinges on 1. Our pass rush. Not necessarily getting sacks but getting hurries, pressures, hits, make the QBs we play against uncomfortable. 2. Matt Ryan getting his act together. I know he is better than what he has shown, I hope and think he will have 4500 yds passing, 28 TDs, 8 Ints.
