  1. I'll admit sometimes just team names/uniforms/"coolness" factor plays a part for me.. Thats how I became a Falcons fan back in the 90s, playing the video games and just picking the coolest sounding team. Its that simple really. Also, if they used players from other leagues currently, I would most likely go with favorite players. Thats how I follow other sports usually, like I was a huge Patrick Roy fan in Hockey, so my fav teams were wherever he went. In the CFL (im Canadian), my favorite team is the Ticats, because they have Deandra Cobb (former Falcon).. just like in NFL Europe, I followed the Admirals because of Brent Grimes.
  2. least we know we wern't the only ones the Packers DOMINATED in the Post season.. As much as I hate losing, esp first round in the playoffs, the Packers were on fire. You gotta have respect for them, and if you are gonna lose to anyone, lose to the Champs. Rather lose to the Champs than lose to the first 7-9 playoff team in history..
  3. Everyone also keep in mind.. as much as I hate to admit it.. The Saints 3 years ago, they had a solid O with Brees, everyone knows that, but their D was horrid.. What did they do to improve that D?? Not get new players, nope, just get the best D Coordinator that was available in Gregg Williams.. Fast foward the next year.. They win the superbowl.. What seperated them from the 6-10 or whatever they had to a superbowl win?? Simple. The D Coordinator. THAT is what is seperating us from a superbowl win, except we have to replace both coordinators. We are way more talented than the saints with overall players, but our playcalling will always doom us, as it was shown in the Philly, Saints and Packers games. Mularkey doesnt understand how to keep tempo, and BVG cant adjust at all.
  4. I've been saying this since 2009.. if we dont fire MM and BVG.. we will never do anything, and Smith will be fired next year. Its unfortunate, because Smith is a great HC, and an even better Defensive playcaller; on the level of Lebou/Rex Ryan/the GB DC, but since Smith is not calling the plays, we need a new DC before we can do anything. MM is just downright bad. We have such a stacked offensive team in talent, probowlers at almost every position, yet we still cant put it together enough to blow out teams like GB or NO?? pathetic really. Yep, its Mora all over again.
  5. ANYONE is better than MM... Did Billick call plays in Minny? if so, def take him.
  6. probably because the aints have coaches that actually call decent plays.. the Falcons will always do great in the reg season when games dont matter, but until BVG and MM are gone, we will never win a playoff game due to their horrible playcalling.. When BVG and MM are gone, we'll be #1 on that list.
  7. yeh, I feel the same way, been following Grimes since NFL Europe, and I still follow Deandra Cobb and Diamond Ferry in the CFL.. but OP forgot to mention just about EVERY play on the NFC side came from a falcon.. DHall and Vick accounted for most of the non-current Falcon plays.
  8. PLEASEEE take Mularkey.. or at least take Greg Williams, the only thing making the Aints D competitive.. ****, perfect case scenario would be Mularkey being HC, taking BVG with him as DC! I can dream, right?
  9. Its not just one game, its 3-4 games this season.. And more, just we got away with a win on those (San Fran game??) The Philly game, we just got flat out-coached HARDCORE, it looked like a HS coach vs an NFL coach how bad we got abused. Vs the Aints, our offensive playcalling was just about the worst ive ever seen in the history of the NFL, run up the middle on 1st and 2nd then throw short on 3rd down and never get first downs.. the one game our D actually played well, the Offense was 100% off that night and we lost to the aints.. The Packers game is just a continuation of the horrible playcalling we've seen in the regular season, you'd think the playoffs would be the time we bring our BEST gameplan, but clearly we brought our worst (like the announcers said, BVG just looked lost out there, as the packers picked his scheme apart.. when the ANNOUNCERS can recognize how bad the playcalling is, thats BAD.)
  10. All very impressive, so why do we still suck on offense?? Only one obvious conclusion.. Our coaching/playcaller sucks. If we have such talented players to get top 10 stats, theres no reason we should be 31st in the league in plays over 20 yards, and no reason we are not in the superbowl.
  11. AJC hit the nail on the head in this one.. Why is MM and BVG still here again?? We could of had 2 maybe 3 superbowls by now if we had Sean Payton and Greg Williams as playcallers.
  12. I dont know why anyone was even looking at him as HC.. probably why everyone cancelled his interview after they seen how horrible he is in the playoffs.. Fired next year, should of been fired this year
  13. Well we know the Probowl is thebest players from both the NFC and AFC.. therefor it should, in theory, be a relatively close game skill wise. Now, the AFC has arguably the best playcallers in the league, with the Patriots coaching staff. (Offensively anyways, and defense isnt horrible).. The NFC side, has arguably the two worst playcallers in the league. So what if the AFC TRUMPS the NFC like 50-3 or so, would that maybe get thru to Mike Smiths thick skull that we have the worst playcallers in the league?? We can only pray.. or something soon to make TD finally realize this and change our coordinators before we have another wasted year with a talented roster.
  14. it might actually help! Maybe MM and BVG will get hit by a bus and have to retire during the lockout, and we'll actually hire some coordinators with a brain!
  15. like you said, its all about their DC, he is a defensive genius, and they win games solely because they have a great playcaller at D. If we had a DC with even 1/5th the brainpower as **** Lebou, we would have a ring this year.
