    You're one of the few "fans" out there still waiting for Ryan to suck and he just keeps proving you wrong.

    Fresh legs too. What happened to load management for Gurley? We don't run a short pass game well with Dirk. And, we don't run the ball well at all. Can't put a guy with young, fresh legs like QO in? Wasn't he drafted SPECIFICALLY for closing?
    If we can't do any of that right, we could just let Knapp call a pure quick WC game to close games over the stuff Denver could snuff out easily.

    Washed up.  Can we get a real QB to play defense?

    One play.
    Gotta keep pounding. Burn clock. Make defense commit.
    There's a strategy here.

    I think the rest of this season will tell is all we need to know about Morris and Koetter.

    Not really. I see it like this: we were always a good enough team, talent-wise, to win at that rate.
    But DQ had some kind of psychological hang up, some kind of existential crisis, where he knew how to get the team dig deep and play its heart out when the season was already shot and nothing was on the line but pride, but he didn't know how to do it otherwise.
    The team basically inherited problem that from its coach.
    Our performance in the first 5 games bears this out -- we really should've won at least 2, maybe 3 of those games. We found ways to lose.
    I think DQ would've done exactly the same thing this season -- the second half would've looked a lot better than the first half.
    But ultimately, who wants that? To always be an irrelevant team that "shows promise."
    (Now -- as far as why we're good enough to be winning at a good rate, sure, Raheem deserves some of the credit. He's a good coach ... but not who we should choose for our _head_ coach).

    Some pretty awful takes in this thread.  Ryan is situationally obtuse at times, but he is still one of the most productive & effective 4th quarter quarterbacks of all time
    Let’s put aside for a moment  the fact that Ryan is 8th All Time with 38 game winning drives & 8th all time in 4th Quarter comebacks drives.....the Falcons have scored the most 4th quarter points since 2017

    Scoring to go up 34-13 with half the 4th q remaining isn't on Ryan.
    We pretended to run and look for screens or rollout looks. What changed is playcalling. If you want to stay aggressive with this defense stop making it easy for their defense. Playcalling in siutations.

    Well, there's some positives I'll take out of today. It's our 3rd straight win over the Broncos, and 4 wins in the last 5 meetings against the Broncos. We beat them in 2012, 2016, and now today in 2020. We led the Broncos 27-7 in 2012, they came back on us but we hung on 27-21. We led the Broncos 23-6 in 2016, they came back on us but we hung on 23-16. Today in 2020, we led the Broncos 34-13, they came back on us but we hung on 34-27.

    For some additional context...

    The one missed FG came from beyond 40 yards & was in the Chicago game when he got injured.

    The missed XP on Thursday came when it was absolutely pouring rain & the wind was gusting big time. It blew the  ball off the tee on the kickoff immediately following the missed XP. The weather was definitely causing issues with the holds, because as the announcers pointed out on one of the FGs Koo made in that game, he had to kick it on the laces since Hofrichter was having a hard time getting a hold of the wet ball and getting it in place properly. Its actually kind of amazing Koo was able to do what he did in that game.

    As for the other missed XPs, I'm pretty sure they came within the first few weeks pf the season. Considering that we have a rookie punter holding for Koo, and that they had an extremely shortened offseason & no preseason games to get on the same page, it's not too surprising that things were a little shaky at first.

    HouseofEuphoria reacted to Bart2Ryan+beyond in 40 years' ago today, Oct26 1980, I fell in love with the Falcons because of this one play   
    Check the video between the 1:04 to the 2:00 minute mark:
    I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (about a 90 minute drive to Buffalo) and I was a huge Vikings fan when the Purple People Eaters defense and Tarkenton, Foreman, Rashad, etc were on those mid-70s teams. All my fav players from those Vikings teams retired by 1980 and the Vikings became just a .500 team in the weak NFC Central (back then).
    I was in my freshman year in HS just watching games that Sunday afternoon when whatever game was on TV concluded and CBS gave us bonus coverage to see how the Falcons-Rams game would finish. I hated the Rams because they were an absolute rival to the Vikings in the 70s. When they went to the Falcons' game, there was just over a minute remaining in the 4th and the Falcons had 3rd and 38 from their 18-yard line. Just watch what happens between 1:04 and 2:00!
    The crowd went nuts and I went nuts, and the beauty of those 1980 Falcons home unis with the amazing shade of red - they became instantly my new fav team and that's the way it's been for 40 years!
    After watching yesterday's loss, it crossed my mind it might have been Karma's plan to make me a Falcons fan that day. I grew up a Boston Celtics fans and a Montreal Canadiens fan and I've enjoyed those teams win a combined 11 championships, so this is Karma's way of balancing my sports pleasure, I figure. 
    A few thoughts about yesterday and the rest of the season:
    1) I'd have to rewatch Gurley's last TD run but I just can't shake the nagging feeling that he really didn't want to stop at the 1-yard line. I wonder if he has a bonus for TDs? Now, the lasting memory of the game for me won't be Gurley's TD. It will be watching Stafford face 1st and 10 at their 38-yard line with 34 seconds left and no TOs - and 3 passes later they have a TD! Now you see what I mean about Karma getting back at me?
    2) When we beat the Vikes in week 6, I figured we could win the next 3 games and be 4-5, then have a bye before we play the Saints. That would give me hope for a playoff spot. Now at 1-6, consider me a conscript for the Tank Brigade. I never watch the Falcons and want them to lose. As the game starts my fandom takes over and I want to see a win. But from a strategic perspective, for the best chance at improving next year, the highest draft position possible is what we need. I hope we go 3-13, beating only the Saints and the Bucs once each (just because), and I will be cheering for the Bengals, Jets, Giants, Cowboys, Washingtons, Texans, Broncos, and Vikings every week, so that they end up with a better record than the Falcons. AB can then fire the entire coaching staff as far as I'm concerned.
