  1. Flame me, cut me, I really don't care. Alford is a freaking joke. Chasing down a receiver in the first half and holds his hands out as the penalty flag lays next to him on the ground. How about the long pass that the Cowboys hit near the end to get into FG position. Replay showed he was nowhere close. Those are just two examples. We could not stop their running, we could not stop their passing. How we drop to one of the worst defenses in one season is beyond me. Simple, its lose people to injuries (starters) and have the veteran starters like Alford and Trufont play poorly. I read where Alford couldn't understand why the fans have been giving him such a tough time. No clue pal, none at all. PS don't give me the "we must get rid of Ryan" crap. He got pounded today like a cheap steak. Our defense count not stop Dallas. That is why......

  3. I cannot fathom why Alford is playing in this league. I saw #23 chasing receivers all night long. He is terrible. I saw one play where the Giant's receiver was in our secondary with two or three Falcons trying to tackle him and Alford stopped and stood there watching. I know there are injuries. Watch a player like Kazee and then watch Alford. There is no comparison. From Atlanta All Day: Cornerback Robert Alford was beaten like a drum in this game. He was a part of the coverage for an unheard of three plays of 50 yards or more. Two of which he was toasted, despite being called for holding on the play. He was also beaten on the Giants lone touchdown pass.
  4. The rebirth of Jamaal Anderson (running back for Atlanta). Great year, got hurt, was never the same
  5. Sorry for the re-post. I didn't see the original; one. If its not coaching then someone has invented a newer excuse.
  6. Short and sweet---- 15 penalties in week 1 and 10 yesterday. Add em up and the yardage is approx. 250 yards. Who is coaching our team?????
  7. Since 1940, teams scoring 36 plus points at home with zero turnovers are 402-4. Think about that for a minute. In the last 78 years only two teams have done that and lost. The Falcons have done that two weeks in a row!!!!
  8. No offense but Alford is terrible... period
  9. Those weren't VIP's trying to get out. I am serious, I'm a guy trying to go home and it was pathetic. Not lying here.
  10. I sat in aisle 338 today. Afterwards I walked to the escalators that led downstairs to Gate 1. It was roped off by stadium management and they told me to take an elevator (which holds 10 people) or walk down the steps. They also told 72,000 people the same thing so the stairs were crammed full. Bottom line, it took me almost 30 minutes to get out. If someone with an ounce of sense doesn't get involved there is going to be a stampede and people will get hurt. Imagine Saint and Falcons fans crammed together and barely moving.. There is a problem here.. a big problem.
  11. I was very happy with Atlanta's performance yesterday. One question I have about Matt Ryan. He threw two lame duck long passes in the game. One was a long pass early on that never made it to the receiver. The second was a long pass to Julio t the goal line area that he stopped on and was intercepted.Were the passes tipped, was Ryans arm hit, does anyone know what happened?
  12. Let me rephrase this--- the seating area is normally dim which is fine. When you mix it with a heavy dose of sunlight it is very hard to see without squinting. It was a problem. I am not talking about heat! Most of the field was extremely bright with the outer areas dark.
  13. On a scale of 1-10 this is probably a 0 but I thought it would make for a good discussion. When I went to the scrimmage/practice at the Mercedes Benz stadium, the dome was opened at 12:10 pm. I noticed a really bad glare from the 20 yard line to the opposite 20. The sun was directly overhead. They closed it before 1 pm. I hope that the Falcons don't try and play with the glare just for the sake of having the top open. I will say that they do a nice job of pumping in cooling are which made things comfortable. There is no way that they can play in the bad glare. I am sure they saw the same thing.
  14. I was at the very first regular season game played in 1966. I was 14 years old. We lost to the Rams 14-19. I was just thrilled to see Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Gale Sayers. I still go and want to see a Super Bowl championship one day.
