  1. We are one win out of of first place in the division.
  2. You're welcome
  3. I don't know if anyone else worries that as a fan, they didn't do their part to help the team win. I wasn't as prepared as I should have been. The game was 11am on Friday here while I was at work, so I wasn't able to be as invested as I usually would. I was rusty on some of my in-season rituals through the week, like wearing my jersey around the house. I'm sorry. I promise I'll be better for week 2.
  4. Home team picks what jersey to wear. So they chose green, we have to wear white.
  5. There should be plenty of times this year that every player on the field is a Falcons draft pick: Beasley Senat Grady Takk Campbell Jones Riley Alford Tru Neal Rico We can also sub in Oluokun for Riley, or take him off and put Kazee as a Nickel. You still have Ish who will make it in there on some packages. I tried to do the same with the other side of the ball and it shows we have so much talent that was brought in via the draft - it just falls apart when you try to do the interior O-Line.

  7. I have been a Falcons fan since 1989 and always wanted to go to a game. But I live over 9000 miles from Atlanta. I got married in 2012 and in 2013 my wife said 'you should really go to a game'. So we planned a US holiday that included 3 days in Atlanta - it was planned around the Falcons home game against the Redskins. So just to note that I won the best wife competition. In the morning we went to a church (I think it was called Cornerstone?) and then went to the Dome. We got there early to take in as much as we could, knowing it might be a once in a lifetime event. There were stands giving out free T-shirts, bags, food - we collected everything we could! 2013 was the year Julio was injured - so it wasn't a great year but I got to see Matt Ryan, Tony G, Roddy and Willy Mo. Weatherspoon was playing and you could see on the sideline how much of a team leader he was. The game wasn't amazing but the D caused a lot of fumbles and won by a point. The Redskins went for 2 to win the game but it was unsuccessful - there was a lot of stuff at the time about Mike Shanahan getting fired and so he was all or nothing instead of sending the game to OT. But the experience was so good. We got tickets 3 rows from the front, on the Falcons sideline, on about the 35 yard line. Even seeing the warm up was pretty surreal for me. We have 2 kids now and have a savings account to pay for another US trip when the kids are old enough to remember the experience and I'm hoping that will include a chance to see a game in the new stadium.
  8. Its all about staying injury free, which he hasn't been able to do. Hopefully this is the year.
  9. He'll be a Steeler. Bell will go to the highest bidder next year and the Steelers can get Coleman for much less, without a huge drop in production. This isn't what I want to happen - I'm hoping he will stay a Falcon, but I don't think we can afford him.
  10. Why isn't Julio reporting to camp a news item on the front page of NFL.com? This is a big story isn't it? Or is it just big in my Falcon's bubble?
  11. Will he still be there at 32?
  12. From that draft class, 20 players had their 5th year options picked up and 12 didn't. I think the fact we picked up his option shows the team feels he is worth the value, and we know in 2016 no one would have called him a bust. Hopefully he can prove that year wasn't a fluke moving back to DE full time. I wonder if the move to OLB was a sneaky move by the team last year. The option on a LB is $2million lower than the option on a DE.
  13. I used StubHub the one time I went and it was great. Had the tickets emailed to me months in advance https://www.stubhub.com/atlanta-falcons-tickets-atlanta-falcons-atlanta-mercedes-benz-stadium-10-22-2018/event/103577544/?sort=price+asc
