  1. That was a play that would've been blown down in bounds with no clock stoppage. It wasn't like he went out of bounds or it was an incomplete pass to where they review where the clock stopped.
  2. And not against a bottom feeder for a QB too. This wasn't a scrub or a backup QB.
  3. If Detroit had a timeout left, they could've used it to avoid the runoff. It was to a degree a play call blunder. Either the play needed to get out of bounds or the pass should've been completed in the end zone
  4. Defense only gave up 1 TD and 4 FGs. Great job!!! This win goes as one we should've lost like Ryan's 5 pick day against Arizona.
  5. I didn't have time to walk all around the stadium for this game but there were no banners or ring of honor flags hanging from the ceiling as in the Georgia Dome. Right before kickoff they showed the prior division, the NFC championship banner from 98, as well as last year's NFC championship on the halo board. It was nice. I'm thinking they have the ring of honor somewhere in that building...will let you know after the Bills game
  6. Same as in the NFCCG, when all week leading up to game we heard how brilliant AR12 was and how he was willing GB to victory. Only to hear after their loss that he was suffering from flu like symptoms.
  7. I understand the logic of kicking the FG and going up by 4. But, playing devil's advocate here, it is not crazy to attempt to go for it on 4th down because the FG doesn't put you up by than 7. Yes, it prevented a FG from tying you, but for the Bears it eliminates the FG as an option for them. You are asking your D to stop them with 4 downs to get a 1st as opposed to 3 downs any other time. The Bears would only go for it on 4 downs until they got into FG range. They could at that point try for an upset and go for it, but most likely, they would kick a FG. The Falcons strength is their offense so that would be an advantage in OT. If the same situation held for a team like the Broncos, then you could put your faith in your D, because that is their strength.
  8. If they ever put a team in London, they would have a similar schedule.
  9. It will take another season of Quinn to see if he is like Smith. Smith didn't get fired for just the Snafu at the London game, he again showed poor game decisions against the Browns. There were several mistakes he made in 2012 but the team won in spite of them. DQ should've stepped up and said something to KS. The game was within 4 minutes of ending. We all know the FG was needed. DQ should know....there will be another game where this type of situation will be present. I just hope he learns from this and not repeatedly fall into the same hole as Smith did.
  10. They were saying on NFL radio this morning that KS will have control of roster, be HC, and call the offensive plays. Sounds like a total control freak and maybe too much for a rookie HC to handle
  11. Thanks for getting the Falcons out of the media spotlight for a while.
  12. Feel the same way.....but I didn't sleep at all Sunday night and ate my first meal after the game until last night.
  13. In the end IMO, this illustrates what happened. Quinn is the pilot, overall responsible. Shanahan is the copilot on his last flight before being transferred to another plane to become a head pilot. Quinn trusted Shanahan with command decisions, (I'll handle the D and you have total control of the offense), Quinn evidently handled the ST strategy calls (what stands out is the taking the delay of game penalty at end of the 3rd so as to run out the clock and punt to start the 4th Q). So it looked like there was a sense of "we need to shorten this game". But that sense of strategy was not being recognized on the offensive side of the ball. Quinn gave too much leeway, and should've asserted to Shanahan that he wanted ball control, clock eating plays run. NE catches up gets to within a score, they panic. They both spectate the mountain getting bigger and never pull back on the stick to gain altitude. Shanahan was the guy at fault with making bad decision, but Quinn could've checked the altimeter anytime and corrected Shanahan.
  14. Still hurt. Finally ate a meal an hour ago since Sunday. Feels like I lost a family member.
  15. I lost about a dozen chicken wings and nachos when I threw up after the game
  16. Or a defensive score including a safety
  17. Give me a couple of months and we can readdress this lol
  18. We're reminded of the Katrina bowl before every freaking MNF game now. I can see a highlight of this fiasco being shown before some sports show. This team is like the Agony of Defeat snow skier on ABC Wide World of Sports. (You young folks csn YouTube it if you are unfamiliar)
  19. Stunning fact, the Falcons, once they had a 28-3 lead only ran the ball 5 (F I V E) 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 times. Sad but true.
  20. Being a fan of this team is like being married to a promiscuous woman that breaks your heart. But we stay with her. I guess my love for this team is greater than the love for my wife because I'd leave her in an instant if she broke my heart. And last night guys was like watching her act like Debbie Does Dallas 2 right in front of you after you took her back after doing Debbie Does Dallas 1 back in 2012 (49ers game)
