  1. I agree with you. But at least for the drop, I do wonder if how aggressively our guys were playing had a little something to do with it. I’d be surprised if Eagles receivers weren’t at least subconsciously waiting to get popped after every catch.
  2. I AM that overreacting fan, I'll own that. Thought we were going to be lucky to win 4 games after Week 1, think we're going to the Super Bowl now. In reality, you can't really know what you have in Week 2. In our actual Super Bowl year, we didn't TRULY hit our stride until December, after the pick-2 Kansas City debacle. From that point on, right up until the quarter that shall not be named, we were d*** near unstoppable. For now, I just want to see our team keep building on what made us tick on Sunday night, and then hope that something special develops like 2016.
  3. Just let Sanu punt and call it a day. If it's anything like his quarterback play, we'll end up repeatedly pinning the opponent at their 1.
  4. This new challenge is ridiculous and slows down the game. Yes, these calls are missed all the time (or the calls made when it was incidental/ticky-tack at most). But the refs don't seem inclined to change the call on the field, and it just slows down the flow of things. Let 'em play. (Yet another reason to hate the Saints. This new challenge wouldn't exist without their whining.)
  5. We have a chance to take ironclad control of our division in these coming weeks. Get it done, Falcons.
  6. xs and os

    I LOVE football and can certainly follow a game as well as any fan, but I don't have a deep knowledge of the X's and O's of what I'm watching. Thanks for putting the time into these, I always learn something new.
  7. Matthews was a man possessed on that play. There wasn’t a chance in **** that defender was going to lay a single fingernail on Julio.
  8. IR with a designation to return.
  9. None. The dude literally materialized in the middle of the play. That was a sure Eagles recovery and then in comes #12 from freaking nowhere like he’s sliding into home base.
  10. They asked Matt who he was pointing to and he basically responded, “Uh, to be honest, I don’t even know. I felt like I was 10. Just was running around the field.” I LOVE this play. Every single thing about it. Sanu knew Julio was gone, Matthews drove that guy so far into the dirt I’m surprised he’s not still being extracted. Pure beauty. I think I might have actually cried if a yellow flag came out for that play.
  11. This is the first meaningful game we've won in quite some time. After a brief gasp of hope on November 4 last year (only remember exact date because they pulled to 4-4 on my birthday), it became clear our 2018 season wasn't carrying into the playoffs. Yeah, it's Week 2, but love to see this. The team bond and chemistry is as important as anything in getting where we want to be.
  12. Yup. Of course he has to be better. That game was ugly for long stretches. I trust Ryan to clean up this sudden inexplicable "just throw the ball up there and pray" streak; it's not his norm. And at the end of the day? On the drive in which he absolutely could NOT screw up, he didn't. He marched to midfield, stayed calm on 4th down, read the play, and let Julio be Julio. I'll take it.
  13. Ha, indeed. I didn't truly celebrate until I was certain I saw no yellow. Any call there would have been completely ticky-tack. Sanu did his job and Matthews DEMOLISHED his man. Pancaked him so hard into the turf I was half expecting a personal foul (would have been completely unwarranted, but ****, that man is still feeling that hit).
  14. Without a doubt. And then a dropped walk in TD, TWO fourth downs, and we win the game by a freaking centimeter. Being a Falcons fan is not for the faint of heart.
