  1. 11 Monday night wins in a row by Seattle until tonight I say job well done!
  2. This^^^. A very intelligent post by someone who’s actually been to the stadium before evaluating it!
  3. I have no idea why you are so invested in running down the Benz and our fans, but you obviously weren’t there, and you are definitely wrong. Go to a game and see the truth. You’re welcome.
  4. It honestly doesn’t feel like that. The stadium is loud, great fun and comfortable. Football is not the same game it was 20 years ago. You don’t have to like it, but it is what it is. The organization has essentially sold out all games for the life of the stadium (through PSL purchases), so I think you have to admit that they did read their fans well. You should really try to go to a game before criticizing the final product. I’m sure you will be impressed and have a great time. Remember, football is entertainment.
  5. NFL teams have to compete with a great home-viewing experience. If they kept or built a plain traditional stadium, there would be little to make fans go to the effort and cost of seeing the game live. Blank and other smart owners realized that and built something far better than sitting at home watching the game on a great hi-def TV. It’s not the traditional “watching the game played in a cow pasture” experience, but it is what most fans today want.
  6. The Saints don’t even have a winning record at home in any of the last 3 years...
  7. You must have been at a different game than I. The stadium was rocking. We are 2-2 at home and 3-2 on the road. I’m not sure anyone has a meaningful home field advantage.
  8. Tony Gonzales only had 59 catches for 621 yards and 2 TDs his second year. Not saying Hooper is TG, but too early to say he can’t be.
  9. There is no question that a lot of people are offended by the “kneelers”. My parents are lifelong NFL fans and they are definitely watching fewer games on TV. The thing is, though, that they never go or have gone to live games anyway. There were almost no kneelers at NFL games yesterday. The multiple statements about poor game attendance at our games, however, are just wrong Our games are all sellouts because the seats were purchased by contractual obligation from purchasing a PSL. I have never heard of or seen a single Falcons fan who boycotted the game and didn’t use or sell their tickets Boycott or not, they already paid for their ticket, and few if any are willing to eat the cost of that paid-for ticket. For some strange reason, a small group of fans on the board are determined to try to create discontent by badmouthing the team and the fans that go to games. If you get a chance to go to a game at the Benz, do it and you will see what a great game experience it is.
  10. Hooper played a great game. And I have to disagree, one game almost always changes the outcome of a season.
  11. I, for one, am proud to be a homer. If I want to hear nonstop criticism of the team I love, I’ll just listen to Colin Cowherd
  12. Actually, because of the sellout of PSLs, every game in every season will be a sellout. They even sold out the temporary “pullout” seats for the Cowboys game. I don’t understand why, as a Falcons fan, you are so committed to running down the organization and the committed fans who go to the games. If there was a boycott in the NFL today, Falcons fans missed the memo. We were loud, proud, filled the stadium, and got to see a record-breaking defensive performance. Wish you were there! Be sure to catch the next game is person; you will see an amazing stadium filled with great fans.
  13. I agree. Lots of quiet Cowboys fans. Falcons fans that went to the game were loud and had a blast.
  14. I would have been pissed if I wasn’t at the Benz today to see an awesome performance by the team.
  15. I'm not sure Falcons will allow PSL transfers yet. I might have missed it, but I didn't see any PSLs for sale less than the original selling price. Most were significantly higher. Anyone selling now probably bought them as an investment (or has had a dramatic change in their financial situation). I know a lot of PSL buyers, and none of them bought with the intention to ever sell them.
