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.

Yes.  I counted the number of games this team has lost in a row, which stands at 6.

Oh


Preseason games are just exhibition games and don't count though.

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?

Wow.  I guess it's easy to accept losing when you're used to it.

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.

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.
