    Yep part of having success in the NFL. He should be a good one for the Falcons. 
    Gotta hope we retain Ireland now. We lost both and will have to replace from within. Hopefully that conveyor belt still working lol.

    We all do.   I just hope this isn't another Saints trick to sabotage us!!  🤣
    He is from Louisiana and has been with the Saints a long time.   They get draft picks - and could have a spy right on top of our stack!

    Yeah, I wish it could be us.  
    Got to hand it to Taysom Hill, though.  That guy would be the best Saint in about 5 different positions.  
    We'll be on top of the division in a few years.

    Gotta give credit where credit is due. I didn’t think Vilma would be unbiased and I said so. I was wrong. He actually did a very good job today. Well done Mr Vilma. I apologize to you. I was wrong.

    Exactly.  Saints knew exactly what ATL was doing and had the counter for it each play, no huddle removed that ability.  The fact that they only run that at the end of halves is infuriating, Ryan seems to be at his best in those situations but as soon as it slows down in the red zone it falls off.  Three run plays called in a row when we are 30th in offensive rushing DVOA and Saints are 2nd in defensive rushing DVOA...good god it’s bad.  It’s painfully bad.

    He sure did. And if you followed the Saints you would know that after they announced they had no QBs, Sean Payton changed the game plan. 
    We ran the ball 44 times out of 60 plays. for 240 yards. 
    Hill is what we thought he would be in this offense.

    Thats, in part, why teams lose - Hill isnt some 3rd string scrub QB. Teams that continue to think that way will continue to get punched in the mouth until they wake up. By then, its too late. 
     
    I thought the Falcons played MUCH better yesterday than the first match. I think in that first match, they really didnt know how to defend Hill and protect Ryan. Defensively, the Falcons came to play. It was clear yall would not let AK41 have his way. He was all but bottled up for a good 3Q. Where we made our mark was the passing game. Hill has been w/ Drew now for 4 years. He has learned from the GOAT how to prepare, how to analyze. He hasnt simply arrived from college ball and all of a sudden is thrown to the wolves. He had 4 years to learn "game speed" ( which is quite different from NCAA game speed ). Anticipation, knowing route schemes vs defensive scheme, who is or should be open...all of that he has had time to adjust to. 
    Defensively, yall did a much better job protecting Ryan this game. I will say, he was pretty spooked in the pocket when it would start to collapse. But when he went to hurry up, shotgun, and passing in rhythm, he was much more effective. And it negated our pass rush for the most part. 
     
    This was the game i expected 2 weeks ago. Yesterday was typical rivalry game. in the last 7 meetings, we have won 6. Outside of 2 weeks ago, the rest were just like yesterday. I was thinking it would come down to who had ball last. Thank goodness it didnt. Our Defense got stout when needed. 
    Tough season for yall, but yesterdays performance, Falcons were not "laying down".

    Before the season I held the position that the Falcons could play very good football this year and end up 9-7. They haven't played good football all season, so they won't be 9-7.  Sunday's game was exactly how I thought this whole season could go. Where many of you obviously saw poor play calling, poor QB play, a bad running game, and spotty defense; I saw a tough fought game between worthy opponents.
    The problem with so many of the Sunday takes is that the Saints are a very good football team. This is not a generic opponent. The Falcons effort on Sunday is being evaluated as if they were. We faced the top ranked defense, and we did struggle at time. They faced a defense that is 6th against run and improving against the pass. They had more success, but it wasn't sustained success. They had too many drives die in scoring position to take control (a criticism many had of the Falcons). 
    I didn't like everything I saw on Sunday. There were mistakes. (In all fairness to the angry masses, I did see some poor excuses for tackling early on.) But overall, the game was a war and the Falcons gave one of the top three teams in the NFC everything they wanted. Yea, but penalties. Yea, but fumble. Yea, but missed FG. Sure, the Saints made some mistakes. Or...did the Falcons D force some mistakes? Now let's flip that around. The Falcons O left plays on the table. Or...did  the Saints D take plays off the table?
    Had the Falcons not given away three wins earlier in the season this game would have been extremely frustrating, but most would have recognized it as a pretty good battle between two defenses who are building toward the end of the season. 
    As Falcons games have gone this season, Sunday was one of the better team efforts. It just happened to come against a better team. We may see more of that over the next four weeks. Its difficult not to confuse bad results with bad play. While allowing that judging profession sports franchises by the bottom line (scoreboard) is valid, I do feel the team laid down a pretty solid effort against a strong opponent. I HATE losing to the Saints. That part bites. However, the Falcons actual play did not leave the same bad taste in my mouth as the efforts against Dallas, Seattle, Chicago, Carolina, and Detroit. This was a better brand of football even if the results were the same ole suck.
