  1. Takk’s post after the Vikings beat the saints proved to me that he’s all in as a falcon this is just icing on the cake https://twitter.com/Takk/status/952709826668351488?s=17
  2. Lmao Mike Smith got 7 years with no SB appearance and 1 playoff win and 2 losing seasons. Don’t ya think Quinn will have a bit of a longer leash?
  3. There’s plenty of blame to go around but this does not absolve nor exonerate Sark. A big part of Shanny’s success is his ability to find an opponent’s weakness and put our play makers in a position to exploit and abuse said weakness (think Denver game last season) another thing Shanny did that Sark failed to do was ride the hot hand. I was frustrated many times watching Free or TeCo break several 5-8 yard runs in a row then head to the bench for the next 4-6 plays. He failed to utilize Gabriel when he had favorable speed match ups or Sanu when he had favorable size match ups. It just seemed like when ever the offense would find a groove he would go away from what was working more often than not. His play designs weren’t awful but the sequence of play calling left much to be desired.
  4. Even with the $18 million in dead money they are projected to be $32 million under the cap. They can afford to keep him but it may be at the expense of improving the rest of the team. Without a viable replacement already on the roster I imagine they’ve painted themselves into a corner. I honestly can’t believe they’ve let him reach the end of another contract considering how the last negotiations went. A smart GM would have gotten a 2-3 year extension done before the end of the season.
  5. i find your lack of faith disturbing. The falcons are still contenders if winning 10 games against the 3rd toughest schedule in the league and being the only nfc to return to the playoffs after suffering the worst loss in super bowl history doesn’t give you hope that the Falcons window is far from closing nothing will. We didn’t have a great year but neither was it the total disaster most seem to believe. Have faith my brother we will get another shot at redemption
  6. Someone put a suicide watch on @Mega Flare lol. What kind of falcons fan can’t find the joy in a gut wretching saints loss?
  7. Oh sweet baby Jesus you didn’t give me a falcons win but you did give me the next best thing a saints loss in a most gut wretching fashion to boot.
  8. Lol of course they gave up points every defense gives up points see what I mean by unreal expectations? When your offense is consistently going 3 and out, not converting 3rd downs, not staying on the field your defense is going to get worn down. no matter how good your defense is if your offense can’t extend drives and give them time to recover it will eventually lead to breakdowns and sloppy play. This is especially true for the falcons defense considering how fast they play. We saw it during the Super Bowl and we saw it again yesterday
  9. I think people here have expectations that are not based in reality. The reality is the defense has done more than enough to win games this season but often got no help at all from the offense just like yesterday
  10. This thread is crazy as are any that criticize the defense or any defensive player after the season the defense just turned in. The defense was literally the only dependable unit all season long. Before the season started the vast majority was hoping/praying the defense would at least be an average nfl defense. The responded from the 2nd half super bowl debacle by ranking in the top ten for points allowed and yards allowed. This defense exceeded all expectations by a far margin.
  11. The defense gives up 15 points (5 below there season average) while the offense only scores 10 (zero in second half) yet this loss is somehow the defenses’ fault????
  12. Ahhh what would an off season be without Capt Hindsight gracing us with his presence deploying his super powers which include his ability to point out the now obvious superstars he would have drafted/added in FA, his overwhelming super boner made up of dimi hate, and his ability to devise the most lame juvenile nicknames for grown men.
  13. Take it for what it’s worth but the eagles only played 5 teams that finished in the top 15 in rushing offense and went 3-2 in those games (1 game was against the cowboys without Wentz) and in 3 of those games they gave up over 100 yards
  14. We don’t feel the pain they attach to us...we inflict it We’re not struggling....We are the struggle
  15. Yeah this is too long need to get back on the field and put their foot on bama’s neck
