  1. It's actually near my parking, literally about a block away on the same road and same side of the road. I paid $221. Only because Lot L sold out so fast. But I was wondering the same. I know the area somewhat and I don't believe it's unsafe. I mean, don't leave anything visible in your car but that's any of the Lots. You should be ok. Not a bad walk either. It looks like a tiny parking area. That's the only thing I can think of. Not 100% the answer but I know F which is just north of L is an ok area.
  2. I agree. Braves did it right with the Battery. I know the Hawks are planning something like that so hopefully them and the Falcons team up on that effort. I know originally there was suppose to be like 18 mil put into the surround area for just such an area. I do tailgate but typically just me and whoever goes with me buys like a publix sandwich and drinks a few beers. No cooking. Now I used to be a part of a big tailgating group of like 50 people. Honestly it was fun but we'd get there so early it wore me out. Almost like a work day. Very stressful. Now I like maybe getting down there between 10 and 11 then chill before the game. I'm excited to see what the Falcons have in store in front of the stadium outside but inside the gates. Hopefully that will be a cool start.
  3. Just a quick question for anyone who bought parking with mobile entry. I bought LOT F that has mobile entry. When I view the ticket it can be scanned but then it states that my ticket must be printed so it can be scanned by the tenant at the lot. Anyone has the same thing that purchased in a lot like LOT A or B? Or anywhere that can be mobile really. I ask because their is a few things about LOT F like one it can't be clicked on the map. It also states it is .7 miles away from MBS when in fact it's more like .4 to .5. They have lots further away stating it is .5 away. So I see that LOT F is glitched some so hoping that the restrooms on site and the mobile entry is correct. I also don't see where I can transfer and email it to a buyer or friend as I will have a friend going to game 4 of the preseason to check out the stadium. I'd like to transfer the parking pass to them. Anyway, if anyone can let me know about their experience so I know if it's just the glitch in LOT F or if they still have to make transfer and managing our parking passes available. Thanks.
  4. I agree that Trufant is more NFL ready but Alford probably has the more talent between them. I'm very excited for both of these guy's future with the Falcons. The question is, Alford or McClain at nickle? That is one I haven't seen answered. Probably McClain but should be interesting as the season goes on. Now hopefully we get a pass rush so all of them don't look bad.
  5. Yep, this is BS. He shouldn't be allowed to set the team up this off season. The GM's job is pretty much done once the season starts so this is hardly a punishment for him minus his lose of salary.
  6. Something that really bothers me about this is all these replays of head shots to defenseless wrs. Where are the refs and the flags they were suppose to be throwing. The refs really need to start making these calls consistently. They allowed this to continue to happen. If they called the games consistently they could of stopped this a long time ago.
  7. I remember Toney's senior yr when Florida State played in the tournament and Harry along with his family attended. They talked about them a lot and that's when I found out.
  8. They were probably listening to the 2LIveStews yesterday. A caller called in and basically said white receivers (Wes Welker) were only successful due to a specific system. Basically they were system players. For what it's worth, The Stews quickly put an end to that and even laughed about how ridiculous it was.
  9. Then again, I've always liked Redman a lot and felt that way before we even drafted Ryan.
  10. Good question and I'm not really sure. Redman maybe by just a tad. I think Redman might have a better deep ball.
  11. We need to get back to ball control and keep the score low and just give us a chance in the 4th qtr. Forget all this explosive BS. Play like we normally do and run the ball and run chunks of the clock off each drive while putting up points. This will be key to getting back on the right track and making the playoffs. This should be a close game but hopefully it will be a low scoring game with us lining up for a last second winning field goal. Just win baby!!!
  12. Wow, nice stats. Probably a little bit of everything you mentioned. We definitively needed Julio. Now hopefully the o-line can give Ryan time. We shall see. I'm on the fence but am not ready to jump ship yet because he's smart, works hard, and is determined to be a winner. I do think he has to take more risk and get the ball into these playmakers hands even when they are covered sometimes. Sometimes I do think he's quick to just dump it off instead of making a tough throw down field.
  13. I actually agree 100% with this. Matt Hasselbeck, who used to be pretty dam good, is a good comparison. He's not quite elite but he is very good. He does have to do it against elite defenses though but I remember back in the Joe Montana days and he used to struggle against those great Giant defenses so sometimes, or most of the time, great defenses shut down great offenses no matter how good the QB is. Some perfect examples is the yr NE went undefeated and the Giants defense made Brady look less than average. Giants vs Montana back in '90. Average then hurt him for a few yrs. Tampa vs the Rams back in 2000 (i think) in the NFC Championship game when they shut that offense down and almost pulled off the huge upset. These are just a few examples. I would would also say that our o-line lets Ryan and the rest of the offense down against these great defenses. Watching Brady Monday night brought that to light. He was able to sit back in the pocket for up top 10 seconds sometimes just scouting the field. That makes it easy for him to wait for someone to get open. Ryan never has had anything close to that. Let him sit back there for 10 seconds and I guarantee you he'd look just like Brady.
  14. True but not sure if a 2 game skid played over about a 8 month period of time constitutes as a trending downward. Lets see the next 5 weeks or so because he can either step up and win some very tough games, which he has done in the past, or he can get exposed for the noddle arm that some claim him to be. I'm a little in the middle. I used to think Ryan would be a Super star sitting next to Brady and Peyton but now I think he's in the next bracket down. Still not bad at all. And worse QB's have won the Super Bowl so as long as we keep building around him we will have a chance at it each and every yr. This yr will show a lot because even some of the gimme games like Houston and Detroit might prove to be pretty dam tough. I stand behind our guys, as I know you do as well, and I look for Ryan and Company to come out with something to prove this week. Look for the W this week. I believe the defense will step up as well and hopefully Hayden will be ready to step in the nickle this week.
  15. You can't judge a team or a player off one game. Matt isn't Aaron Rodgers but he still is dam good on most days. He's a proven winner and one game against a very good defense that played themselves one win away from the Super Bowl last yr isn't going to change that. If he has a bad season then we can reevaluate but for now I'm riding with Matty Ice.
  16. I haven't read all this but am going to respond to the title itself, both the loss to the Bears and a possible loss to the Eagles are both huge because at the end of the season these are teams we will be fighting for playoff positioning and or even a wildcard spot. These games couldn't be more important right now vs these foes.
  17. BTW, The Eagles can't stop the run so look for us to go back to a ball control offense and I'm actually OK with that. Keep the other team's high powered offense off the field and win it in the 4th qtr. If it's not broke don't fix it is my motto.
  18. It's possible. In the NFL you can stink it up one week and look like world beaters the following week so who knows. We are still a good team that just flat out had a poor start. I look for us to rebound this week. The entire team and staff were embarrassed and will work the tails off to show the world we are who they thought we were. Bring it on!
  19. I'll be concerned after maybe another showing like this one. Maybe not a loss because the Eagles are pretty dam good but if we don't show up again it might be some red flags that start to show themselves. A MIke Smith led Falcon's team has never lost 2 straight so lets give them a chance to turn it around. Chicago is pretty good BTW. They just stuck it to us today. We'll see them again in the playoffs, I hope. Oops, I meant yesterday. Guess I'm still pretty upset my days have blended.
  20. I would take him but not on the practice squad. Dude can play. He'd compete with Snelling for the top back up.
  21. He could single handedly rebuild mankind........in 3 yrs. :lol: :lol:
  22. I remember us going 4-0 in the preseason a few times in the 90's only to go like 5-11 or something in that range and then the 49ers going 1-3 or 0-4 then winning it all or at least loosing to Dallas in the NFC Championship games. Basically it's nice to see your team look good but that doesn't mean you will have a good season and doing bad doesn't mean you will have a horrible season. Basically it means little to nothing one way or the other.
