  1. It could have been a doctors appointment/checkup for the kids. Maybe an ultrasound and he didn't want to miss the chance to see the kids. I hope it's nothing too serious but I cant imagine them saying "he could be back later" if it was something that could be serious.
  2. I think the birds drop this one. The offense still isn’t...right yet. And I still don’t trust the defense. Too often the defense will allow an answer after we score, and last week they couldnt stop Winston after 10 days to prepare. I don’t see them stopping Brees on a short week IN New Orleans, especially if Kamara is healthy. We were fortunate to knock him out early last time, I don’t think we’ll be as lucky this go round.
  3. Last minute change and decided to wear my black Roddy from 2010 season. Let’s go birds!
  4. I’m wearing my first falcons jersey I ever got, an Eric Metcalf jersey from 94 or 95? Can’t remember exactly when I got it.
  5. Take the new logo, put it on this jersey and helmet and leave everything else, and BAM - perfect Atlanta Falcon uniform.
  6. Savannah is considered a "primary market" for the jags and a secondary market for the Falcons, so if both games are televised on cbs at the same time, we get the stupid jags. If anyone knows a way to watch on my iPad, my inbox is waiting :-)
  7. Matt Ryan needs a ring, and he also needs that "moment". He needs something that the media and public can cling to that makes them say "wow, remember that time Ryan led the game winning drive in the Super Bowl and beat the Patriots" or something like that. For those of us that watch him week to week, we can appreciate his efficiency, his accuracy, his ability to get his team into the right play and be successful. But those that don't watch him every week need that other..."something" to tie to his greatness.
  8. My local kids had that throwback Vapor Untouchable Limited, and the falcon is screen printed with the stitching around the edge of the logo, so it's not stitched on that one. I would imagine the elite is the same.
  9. The sleeve logo is why I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on it. For that much money I want it embroidered on.
  10. Great recap aawagner, thank you! I actually went to our local Lids locker room here in Savannah and they had the black throwback jersey in a vapor untouchable limited. I tried it on to see how it compared to the Nike Elite that I own, and it's definitely lighter and fits smaller. My nike elite is a size 40 (M) but the size Large in the new style was very form fitting. I'm still waiting to see the new elite models before deciding if I want to pull the trigger now or wait. Like someone else said, I am anticipating a uniform change soon, so I think any new purchase I make will be a black throwback.
  11. It's different materials than what the falcons were using before. Different collar style, different pattern on body of jerseys. Some of the fan jerseys I've seen have the elastic cuff sleeves like the old Reebok authentics used to have.
  12. Lol yea I thought there would be confusion no matter how I labeled it
  13. Sorry if been discussed previously, I couldn't find the thread, but has anyone purchased one of the new vapor jerseys for this year, either an elite or limited? I'm interested in seeing what they look like in person. None of the stores where I live have them in yet, and I can't find any online to get a good idea of how they look other than stock photos.
  14. Just so it doesn't get lost in all the sadness of the epic fail that ensued after this, I just wanted to take a moment and appreciate what a magnificent play by both Julio Jones AND Matt Ryan on this play. Ryan was flushed, escaped the pocket and threw a dart on the run to a covered Julio, who of course made what would have been one of the greatest SB catches of all time had the Falcons held on. While Ryan played well in the Super Bowl and through the postseason, he didn't have that one MVP moment, but in retrospect that play was probably it had we run the ball after and made the FG, and it was a tremendous play.
  15. Best part of the article to me. That's solid leadership, and something we don't often see watching press conferences. On the NFC championship game SoundFX, there was a part where the ref came and told Ryan to watch his receivers not being set at the snap. He said "let me go yell at them now" and sure enough, he went over to the group and laid into them about how they need to be more aware and make sure theyre not hurting the team. Solid, solid leadership. For that reason alone, I think we'll be ok for a few years. All the young talent sees his work ethic and his example as a player. We will have a team of leaders in 4-5 years, and maybe a few deep postseason runs behind us as well.
