  1. If this team could get disciplined they would be pretty decent. But you can't expect to win when you're messing up opportunities to get one of the best QB's in the NFL off the field. 7 points right there. Also the Refs aren't helping. Apparently mugging Julio Jones is completely okay in Foxboro.
  2. So essentially the call Mike Smith made last time we played the Lions?
  3. Fair enough haha.
  4. Didn't I basically just say that? I said it was just my way of thinking and we have the right to stand or kneel either way.
  5. I agree to an extent, I was kinda using soldiers as a more overall statement, including the founding fathers and such as men who fought and died for what we now call home. It's not just the soldiers but they died for those ideals the flag represents and that's the main thing to me, those ideals. Stand for those ideals, are we failing them and is our country in a dark time? Absolutely, no question. But to me, that's all the more reason to stand. Stand for those ideals and then do what we can to change where they're not being lived up to. I suppose the point of kneeling is to say those ideals aren't being reached, I just personally think there's a better way to go about it. Honestly I don't think it's a huge deal either way and we all need to pop open some drinks and just enjoy the game together, we all like football and if that brings us together, whether we stand or kneel we need something that brings us together. So after the national anthem ends, the fireworks go off, and the game begins, we're all still Falcons Fans together, and I'm proud to be in the brotherhood with all of you!
  6. I think different people here just have different ideas of what the flag stands for. Because I think kneeling is stupid but I agree that people shouldn't fear for their lives just getting pulled over. To me, that's all the more reason to stand, because the flag and what it stands for actually SUPPORTS that freedom, as is clearly represented in the constitution of the United States. Thing is, if the soldiers who served that flag that represents our nation and the constitution of our nation, if those soldiers hadn't given their lives for it, those guys wouldn't HAVE the freedom to kneel. Its essentially biting the hand that feeds, that's where I think the disrespect is. Do I think they should be fired for kneeling? No, we have the right to peaceful protest and it's a free country, to each their own. However, I think they should reevaluate where the real problem is. Because that flag represents more than our current president or a few situations you dislike. It represents men who went to an unknown country to explore freedom, it represents the unalienable human rights that are stated clearly in our constituon, and it represents the very freedom that allows us to have these debates, and the freedom that lets us all enjoy our favorite sport. If you have a problem with people getting shot for no reason, good, so do I, but that's not what the flag represents. There may be some idiots in our nation who are okay with that, but that isn't what the nation, nor the flag that represents it, was built on. That's why I believe in standing.
  7. http://www.espn.com/nfl/qbr Seems to be picking up right where he left off, thought you all might find it interesting.
  8. Offense already looks better but Schraeder needs to be okay, we don't have much depth at tackle.
  9. Hahaha, respect your honesty.
  10. Dem Birds.. are you a male stripper?
  11. Don't suppose wherever you work is hiring? Hahaha.
  12. That literally made me laugh out loud! Will do! Thanks!:D
  13. I'm actually going to be going to Free Chapel, since Free Chapel College is where I'll be attending school. But I appreciate the offer and maybe I can visit one day.:) I like the way you think. I'm okay with that, I'm looking forward to seeing how his career plays out.
  14. Aw man I thought I had found a buddy to watch the games with! Lol
  15. That's actually where I'm going to be living! The school is in Gainesville but my apartment is in Flowery Branch. I'm gonna have to check out Taco Mac! Thank you!:D Thanks! So basically anywhere with Wings in the name I should be fine?:p And that makes sense, I'm not sure I'm going to have cable at all though. Suppose I could get some old school rabbit ears! Lol Dude you're clever! Lol See I'm torn because I'm going to ministry school and every time I go to Hooters I sin...
