  1. It would have been about a 63 yard punt if caught at the 23 yard line where it first bounced.
  2. Seattle.....because they are the best team of that group. If this Falcons team can make the playoffs...what better way to add to there momentum than to put the best possible team in front of them. Win that game too...and the Falcons are a force that no team will want to face. Now...back from dream land....lets be real. We know the Falcons can go 6-2 just like last season...meaning 5-2 over the next 7 games. At that point they are 6-7. With 7 teams making the playoffs this year that means that if you go 9-7 you have roughly a 50% chance of making the playoffs. So could the Falcons w
  3. The only way a championship has been won is if the competition got real soft. Atlanta or Ga needs to have a good team and then the opponents need to be relatively soft. That is exactly what happened in 1980 (Ga) and 1995 (Braves). I mean...take away Tom Brady...or this years Bama team and Lawrence from Clem...and you got a chance!
  4. I fell for it...hook line and sinker I fell or it. My 11-5 prediction....well I apologize...that was terrible. I thought the coaches would find a way to capitalize on and continue the late season trend from a year ago. I mean...honestly....The Falcons hung in there and were able to defeat the best the NFC could offer. Wins over SF and New Orleans. They were top NFC teams! This is clearly a coaching issue....an epic fail...and it is occurring on Quinn's watch! 2019 the Falcons went 2-10(including the preseason) before turning it around. Does that mean since there was no preseason this ye
  5. I saw that Blank is lurking near the sideline again. Maybe this upcoming good old fashioned %^&* whoopin might be what the doctor ordered. You know...to get AB to do the right thing.
  6. Terrible....the defense does not even look like they want to be out there.
  7. "I will get fired if we don't win tonight!" 😀😀😀
  8. I agree with cleaning out starting with MCKay...Quinn and TD. Some want to trade Julio. I would not do that unless you can get a 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick from a top 10 drafting team. Then, hopefully we end up with a top 5 pick overall. 2 - early 1st round picks WR and CB (let Terrell and the new CB grow up together) 2 - early 2nd round picks S and LB (go to a 4-3 d...the 4-2-5 is uselss) 2 -early 3rd round picks RB and DE AB needs to hire a GM who knows NFL caliber talent when he sees it. No more wasted early pics...I'm sick of seeing that! Now....we c
  9. I actually see that the money is coming in on the Falcons as the line has dropped to 6. Wow....what am I missing here? I think I'd lay the points. This is going to be a tough night for the Falcons I regret to say. Might as well play a prevent D the whole game. Giving up 35 pts is better than getting 60+ hung on you. At some point you just want to limit the pain.
  10. I don't see it at all. I live in Ten and I am quite familiar with the Titans teams during the Fisher era. Fisher really wanted to win and you could see it and it translated nicely through the organization. This relationship did take a hit with the drafting of Vince young and it fell apart thereafter. Fisher was very conservative though(this can be a good and bad thing) but the teams worked hard and played for 4 qtrs under him! If Fisher were our coach on that Feb day in 2017, the Falcons would have a lombardi trophy.
  11. I see the line is only GB by 6 pts. That's surprising! I would have though it would much higher...like 12 or so. Maybe the Falcons might be ahead after 2 1/2 to 3qtrs before the wheels come off? Then again...I don't think this team has any wheels left. Sad state of affairs right now at the ATL.
  12. LB S DE and for the love of G-D....go to a standard 4-3 D....with players that fit that scheme!
  13. OK...so the large bulk of us believe the Falcons are going to lose against the Packers. I do to....by 14. But if you don't mind...please tell me the score at the end of the 3rd qtr. At this point I'm just trying to evoke any type of optimism I can find.
  14. I do not believe that this organization is as committed to winning as most other NFL organizations are. I think the SB 51 wounds are still and will always be there for those coaches and players that played that game. Falcons need a total overhaul...the likes of which would take us down to an expansion team's level. Does that sound painful? Absolutely....but it is sorely needed. There is a laziness that exists now. Quite possibly, this is due to the basic concept that football is not the most important thing in the world to these guys. It is that mentality that sets forth the notion th

  16. Quinn's inability to identify that Oliver is not nfl caliber speaks volumes to me! He is clueless....this is all going on under his watch. He is not head coach material....PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!
  17. Do the right thing, sir. You know what that is.
  18. wow....58.4% of you guys are dreaming! You actually think they can turn this train wreck of a team around. Care to recant your initial decision? As I mentioned before...."A complete overhaul is needed".. Maybe when we are 0-4 the light will come on!
  19. You should lock in the vote just prior to today's kick off. Then run it again when we are 0-4 and see how much it changes. Or maybe we'll be 2-2 and I'll be snow skiing outdoors in Florida next July. Either way...interesting post.
  20. Yes, the Falcons will torch the Bear's D....but only after we are down by 21 and half way through the 4th qtr. More great numbers for Ryan coming up.
  21. Stopped reading after I saw the 4 defensive Lineman at the top. We are in trouble.
  22. I like it....but may I add that AB will come off the sidelines and tackle the Bear defender before he scores. Then he will go directly over to Quinn and like a home plate umpire in MLB, toss Quinn out of the game and terminate his job!
  23. It's impossible to answer this question. Because the answer key is created by AB, who now looks like a deer in the headlights.
  24. I think its going to be hilarious when the Bears attempt an onside kick to start the game. It will be another slow roller. What would happen...will the Falcons get it right this time?
  25. If the light was ever going to switch on for this team, this is the week it would happen. That onside kick debacle has to put the question in there minds of "Just what in the #$%^ are we doing here?" "Do we even want to win?" I usually don't put that much emphasis on 1 single game in the early stages of the season, but I think this Sunday is different. The Falcons should be absolutely embarrassed at this point. To lose in a tough way is 1 thing...but to look completely clueless while doing it is another! If the Falcons go down this Sunday...I think this whole regime is toast. And it will
