  1. That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much! I tried on a Cowboys jersey at my local lids (was only limited style they had in my size - I told the associate I felt dirty even doing it) but since they didn't have a Falcons one I was curious about which portions were stitched and which weren't. I appreciate your help and sharing your info!
  2. Just wanted to see some photos of some of the stitching - logo, ATL, number, etc
  3. Has anyone gotten and new style jersey in the limited or elite/untouchable style? I haven’t seen in an any local stores (obviously) and was wondering if anyone has in hand pics of the details? Thanks in advance
  4. You guys clearly have forgotten how awful 2013-2014 were. I loved Mike Smith. I thought he was going to be our Mike Tomlin - be a permanent fixture here and bring our franchise a Super Bowl. BUT, it became clear in those years that he had taken us as far as he could go. Now, DQ obviously is going down the same road, and it looks like he made a great hire with Shanny and that almost got him a ring, but I don't want to go back to Mike Smith era at all. If DQ doesnt work out (and it's not looking good, but it's only one game) Uncle Arthur needs to look for someone young and innovative, not a retread.
  5. The font on the numbers isn’t terrible, BUT, the awful shadow feature is. Why not a full outline? Makes the jerseys look like a late 90s concept or something. also, I see no valid reason for changing the facemask from black to chrome/silver if these are the uniforms. There is little to no silver featured so it looks extra out of place. I am glad the clown sleeves are gone but that’s about the only positive I can find. this just about guarantees that I will not be buying a jersey any time soon.
  6. This. But I’d say keep the black helmet. Done and done. <chefs kiss>
  7. Yes they should, but they aren't. The route combos are predictable and the defenders are obviously aware of what is coming at them.
  8. I seem to remember the Falcons having issues with short yardage plays back in, I guess it was 2014. I forget who the playcaller was then...
  9. He has to evaluate his route concepts. Too often receivers are stagnant when making a catch, which allows for the defense to either blanket them or quickly converge after a catch. The concepts do not get players open, it relies too heavily on crisp routes and even then results in small windows for Ryan to get the ball into before a defender is there. And let's be real, that is not Ryan's strong suit. I do not understand how so many teams will have plays with receivers running wide open, yet here we are back in 2014 where our guys are working twice as hard for half the results. Also, the run game has to be fixed. If the defense knows we're just going to pass all day, then they can focus on pass coverage and disregard worrying about any threat of a run game. We seem to have abandoned the outside zone runs, which Freeman excelled in, and now we're back to those terribly designed inside runs where he's fortunate to squeeze through and pick up 3-4. Bottom line is this - every scheme, concept, and play call works to perfection on paper. But if you cannot get your players to execute it on the field, or if the defense is not being manipulated as the play design would suggest, then it's time to re-evaluate.
  10. Funk = 24/34 291 yds 1 TD 1 INT (tipped off Ridleys hands) 38/52 330 yds 2 TD 0 INT 72% completions, 621 yds, 3 TDs 1 INT....what else would you like him to do? He threw a dime to Julio to tie the game only to have the defense bend over and take it from the cowboys on the ensuing drive (with some help from Quinn's time management)
  11. King Arthur and the Falcons administration will get a good look at the Saints organization when they win the Super Bowl in MBS. Barf.
  12. I've told my friends repeatedly through the years, and it rings as true today as it ever has, but the FALCONS need to be renamed the Atlanta SLUMPBUSTERS. Too often a team will come in who has been completely deficient in some category - wins, passing TD's, rushing yds, etc, and will have a breakout game against the birds. Remember Samkon Gado? Nobody else does either, but bah gawd he had a record day against us. Remember that time Carolina ran the wildcat all game and Atl had no answer? Or that time Cleveland was reeling and fired their coach and started a rookie qb and oh no I'm going down a dark hole...
  13. I’ve been a falcons fan since the early 90’s, when I was in middle school, and I have resigned myself to this truth - If this franchise can’t win a Super Bowl up 28-3 late in the 3rd quarter, then it just ain’t happening.
  14. I worked in a private training facility, and we had NFL guys come in. Basically in the league the S&C coaches have workouts for the players, but it’s not required they follow them. A lot of players will have workouts/plans from their college strength coach or a private coach that they follow, so the players could all be doing 53 different workouts on a given day. The quality of those workouts? Up to debate depending on situation. Now, 99% of players workout with no prodding from the team staff, because if they made it that far they know the importance of training and keeping your body in shape. But you do occassionally get 1-2% that think they don’t need it, and they dont last long.
  15. This has probably been shared here before, but I just saw it. Now I feel even more deflated about the rest of this season, and honestly amazed we've won the games we've won thus far during Sarks tenure.
  16. I dont know how you can be a fan of football and not appreciate that play Rodgers made last night. And honestly, not just the last play, but the whole second half. He was hobbled by a bad leg and came back from a huge deficit. He eluded pass rush from one of the elite rushers in the game and was able to hit his targets. That is not something just anyone can do. I guess if you're an NFC north fan you probably wouldnt appreciate it.
  17. In light of Aaron Rodgers leading the comeback last night, I got to wondering - what is the largest deficit that the Falcons have overcome and won in the Matt Ryan era? Anyone know?
  18. Looks almost exactly like last years, with a few changes to the intros. Also, they need to lengthen Matt. He's not that thick bahahaha
  19. Yes Nike is getting out of control with these prices! I found a Nike Elite Ryan jersey on eBay for $75 a few years back. Don’t think I could pull the trigger at full price.
  20. Bumping this for the new season! Has anyone gotten the new Vapor Untouchable Elite yet? They're available on Fanatics.com. I'm interested to see how they look in person and not in a stock photo.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Last minute change and decided to wear my black Roddy from 2010 season. Let’s go birds!
