It sucks losing 6 in a row but I'm confident we snap the streak this Sunday against the Rams. We need to get back to having a winners mentality. I hate losing.

Yep and 1-7 in our last eight, with the lone win coming in a nail biting squeaker, on a last minute FG.

And a middle finger to all yall boys that say preseason doesn't count. IT DOES!!!! That's where the problems start. One year it's dropped passes. The next it's 3rd and 1. Then can't tackle. This year it's red zone. When will yall learn?

2008 Detroit Lions are proof that the preseason should not be taken that seriously.

4-0 in the preseason

0-16 in the regular season

Funny, the standings show the Falcons at 0-1.

So, if Smitty had played the starters an extra 2-3 series after the other team pulled its first string, then kept the second team in after the other team had pulled its second team, and gone 4-0, Falcons would have won yesterday?

Did anyone see Robert Quinn's play yesterday? Think we can keep him off Matt Ryan if he plays like that?

I hope we can make some "adjustments". If not we could be on a 7 game losing streak.

Can yall boys find another preseason anomaly to use other than the Lions?

Red zone, third down and penalties were the problem this preseason. Red zone and third down were problems in the Swamp yesterday.

Go look at the Falcons preseason history under Smitty and see the Falcons regular season history and you will see that the preseason does not really matter.

How bout 1-3 in the last 4 games that count?

Oh, so you're admitting that "6 game losing steak" is nonsense?

Last game of the regular season didn't count- loss or win in that game didn't change the Falcons standings.

You can claim 0-2 in regular season or 0-2 in last two games.

Standings say 0-1.

Naw I'd rather you go look at the Falcon's preseason history under Smitty and see how closely it resembles the Falcon's postseason history under Smitty. Then you will see that the problems that surfaced in the preseason are the same ones that resurfaced in the postseason. Dropped passes, missed tackles, third and ones, red zone TDs, etc. Any questions?

Peyton Manning's Colts lost 12 consecutive preseason games - 3 years of losing. They won 12+ games each of those years and a SB in one of them.

No it's not nonsense. We have lost 6 football games in a row. There is no denying that.

We have also lost 3 of the last 4 games that were either regular season or post season. There is no denying that.

But yet they still won many regular season games while being one of the worst preseason teams record wise.

Many of those preseason games before this year, the 1st team looked really good while the backups looked terrible.

BREAKING NEWS: The NFL has lied to us all!!! The 1972 Dolphins actually lost 3 games! They did NOT go undefeated. They were 3-3 in the preseason!

We've been fooled!

Point made. Move on. 2013 Falcons 0-1 and this is all that matters. Go Falcons

Preseason games are preseason games for the other teams too.

It is still different than regular season games.

Coaches actually use their schemes in the regular season while they don't in the preseason.
