  1. All I will say is that Marquand Manuel was the DB coach before being promoted to defensive coordinator. When I look at all-22 all I see is the DB’s are lost as h*ll when the ball is immediately snapped. He followed Quinn to Atlanta from Seattle; Pass rush isn’t the problem in my eyes but if you got QB’s like Mariota and Murray nickel, dimeing, and quartering you in the secondary then there lies the problem. I honestly believe the poor play in the secondary is crippling the 1st and 2nd levels of the defense and we should’ve never let Manuel go.
  2. This game was horrible officiated.
  3. I gotta roll with Kubiak, he’d help Matt Ryan’s game tremendously.
  4. I knew we should’ve kept Sark but people getting impatient with the offense. Dude at least knew how to use all 3 WR.
  5. I smell I new board meme...
  6. Us Falcon fans have dealt with 4 weeks of inconsistent football. We’ve dealt with an entire off-season of watching the front office scramble around to get deals done, locking in our most important players. We’ve dealt with days of players and coaches pointing fingers trying to figure out what’s going on. Now it is time for us to shut up and let this team, this organization answer the question of who the real Atlanta Falcons are, because from reading the boards everyday, I don’t think any one in this motherf***er knows. I don’t even mean that as a slight; We are genuinely confused as to who the Falcons are after an entire off-season of promise. Now, we know what some fans want to believe; This team from top to bottom, outside of Julio, Deion, and Jarrett is straight garbage. I’ve been defending this squad the entire season and my good friend (who happens to operations manager at my company and season ticket holder) basically said “Shut up, no more talking for them, they need to talk for us”. She is right. My optimism has been subsided for the rest of this season. Everyone in here knows that this team hasn’t played a complete game of football in 3 years. As fans? What the **** are we supposed to do with that? We have been waiting 3 lonnngg years to see this team perform with peak promise. It needs to... Wait, you know what? No...It BETTER happen this Sunday or this season will be pretty much over. I just purchase a Matt Ryan jersey not long ago and wore it to work every Friday, expect this past one. Falcons need to show me they’re worthy of support on THAT level. So, one more time, will the REAL Atlanta Falcons please stand up!?!?!
  7. I would almost say we’re a classy “low tier” team. Seriously, it is the class of Arthur Blank that’s keeping this team in the know.
  8. Boy I read your previous comments and you like a low-key Swift bruh lmao.
  9. You’ve taken it the wrong way. Team is losing, not playing good football. TD went thru heck to pay all our key figures what they deserve and we’ve started the season horribly. Not what you expect when you pay all top performers to perform and they haven’t showed up yet. Nothing to do with anything else.
  10. Absolutely correct. The routes take too long to develop.
  11. You’re right. Man that succckkkss.
  12. Quinn is a head coach, and for a moment, he did turn it around. But, Shanahan took a lot of pressure off of him; all he had to do was focus on the defense. Quinn not having a solid offensive coordinator since Shanahan’s departure has left him accountable for all the teams’ shortcomings because he’s pretty much responsible for the hires. I don’t think the season is over yet, but this was the most uninspired performance of Dan Quinn’s tenure. They looked soulless... I tried to let it go, but I am still extremely upset that the Falcons did not do whatever they could to get Gary Kubiak here; it was the perfect dynamic that Quinn was looking for as far as being co-head coaches with Super Bowl experience. All-in-all, there is something seriously wrong with the Falcons. We’ve made far too many investments this offseason to turnover and die this early.
  13. I really wanted to blame Kazee on that one. I felt he should’ve had the instincts to peel off and catch that TE since there were a ton of Falcons covering the middle of the field. Hindsight 20-20 but I feel like whatever was called? Just “break” the play and go find that dude.
  14. That was a tough loss against that Colts team, I’ll admit. But, this is the NFL, not college. So, some of you UGA/SEC lovers need to stop putting those collegiate expectations on a team in a league where everyone is exceptional. I want my team to win every game and I would find it hard pressed for anyone to look at a schedule, predict what games we will lose, and what fashion we would lose them in; losses will happen in the NFL and they are never pretty. If you’re a Falcons fan you should know how to deal with them by now. We’re 1-2, and the odds are not insurmountable. Just hope that our team stays healthy going forward. I actually like all the adversity our team is dealing with; the talent is there for a playoff run but I’ve always questioned this team mentally. This should help chisel them and make them stronger. A lot of you guys always question our staff/coaching after losing a game. After a tough victory against the Titans you guys will hopefully go back to normal. SEE YOU THIS SUNDAY!!!
  15. Weaknesses are always magnified after a loss; It is what it is. Give the opposing team credit, we came out slow and they maximized the opportunity. On to the next game. Also, that UGA comment was not a slight to them but you’re free to interpret whatever you want however on the internet.
  16. Neal came up to stop the short completion and the ball was sailing over his head.
  17. Yeah my dude can’t put any weight on his leg... He’ll be out at least 5 weeks.
  18. The way this board reacts after a loss EARLY in the season is really remarkable lol it’s like they don’t understand that coaches make adjustments and changes all offseason and the first game doesn’t really determine anything.
  19. Mannnnn they were rusty and it showed. It will take a couple of weeks for our defense to get back in sync; If I had to guess it would be about 6. We will definitely be a top unit in the NFL but our 2-3 levels definitely has to get it together. That’s what happens when your starting lineup is a circus on those levels for most of last year.
  20. You’re being way too generous, Quinn has established a real defensive identity as of now and in my opinion it won’t take two years more like two more games. We gotta see what teams are doing different and adjust but Quinn will have our defense top notch.
  21. I stand by that too but not in the way of only stats but players who can consistently make plays on all 3 levels and of course over the term of a full season.
  22. He better show it the next game because I’ve just about given up on him.
  23. We gotta put our heart and soul into this game. I’m freaking serious.
  24. Still have high hopes for the Falcons but even I didn’t expect the Vikings offense to look this good. Falcons have had the prettiest off season ever with people getting paid and them barely showing up right now. They need to flip the switch the second half and show that they belong because they look like over paid pretty boys on both sides.
  25. Games aren’t won in the first quarter folks. Keep rising up.
