  1. Only been to one game in my life... 2011 Falcons @ Seattle... a game the Falcons won 30-28. Never been to the Benz... but I'll be there in November for the Metallica concert. I've seen good and bad concert reviews on the Benz... but it's Metallica so I'll take my chances.
  2. Could less less about Fields and what he may or may not do in Chicago... where QBs go to die. Lost all respect for the dude when he played the race card to get out of the 1 year mandatory NCAA transfer ineligibility when he left UGA. Georgia’s other QB behind Fromm (Jacob Eason) also transferred (to Washington) but he did have to sit out a year. Pitts was a solid choice. 👍
  3. I’d still bet on Fields being a bust before Lawrence... Time will tell.
  4. I once flipped a coin and got 8 consecutive tails... to this day I still believe it was rigged. 😂
  5. Not a problem. As for the race card... that’s what it looks like from here. The dude has no patience... he could have sat behind Fromm a year and the job would have been his anyway. Instead he transfers to a school with no QB competition and bypasses the 1 year rule by saying someone at UGA used a racial slur and that’s why he should get a waiver. It didn’t have anything to do with him being stuck behind Fromm... yeah whatever. 🙄 I’m half thinking these character issues are going to lead him to being an NFL bust... but we’ll see. Maybe he’ll have success against NFL defenses... but if I had to put money on it I’d bet on Lawrence over Fields.
  6. Sounds like you’re just uniformed. The “race card” didn’t have anything to do with him not being the starter at Georgia... he played it after transferring. Fields gets NCAA waiver Quarterback Justin Fields has been granted a waiver that will allow him to play immediately for Ohio State after transferring from Georgia. The former five-star recruit transferred to the Buckeyes after he got stuck behind Jake Fromm on Georgia's depth chart. Ohio State announced Friday that the NCAA has approved Fields' request for a waiver of the rule requiring transfers to sit out a year. Fields is expected to compete for the starting quarterback spot after Dwayne Haskins Jr. left early to enter the NFL draft. Fields was the target of a racial slur from a Georgia baseball player during a football game in September, and there was speculation the incident would become part of his appeal for a waiver. The NCAA can grant immediate eligibility to a transferring player who has "documented mitigating circumstances that are outside the student-athlete's control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete." My point remains the same... Eason transferred and he didn’t get the waiver. Fields transferred and played the race card and got the free pass. P.S. Race doesn’t have anything to do with how I feel either. If Fields were white I’d still feel the same way... and that is he’s a crybaby who circumvented a transfer rule to avoid sitting out a year by saying someone hurt his feelings so therefore the transfer rule shouldn’t apply to him. Anyway... he gets a big middle finger from me and if he busts in the NFL I’ll get a good laugh. As for the #4 pick... I’d be fine with anyone else. Sewell... Lance... Pitts...
  7. As a player I don’t favor one over the other but I’ve got much more respect for Lawrence as a person than I’ll ever have for Fields. I most definitely would not want the face of my franchise to be a guy who ran off to OSU in tears and played the race card to avoid sitting out a year. The other QB behind Fromm on the depth chart (Jacob Eason) also transferred (to Washington) and he did have to sit out a year. Go ahead and explain to me like I’m a 4th grader why this rule didn’t apply to Fields. I’ll wait.
  8. The talent Seattle had on defense in 2013/2014 would have made anyone look good.
  9. Enjoy it... changed the channel with the kneel and won’t be back this year. Pro sports are garbage... and based on all the forum posts... so are the Falcons. 😂😂
  10. I'm in Seattle and the fans up here don't seem as confident. They'll be riding Wilson's magic as far as it will go... because they most certainly won't be riding anything that resembles a defense with a pass rush like in the past.
  11. Well if there's one thing going against the Saints it's the fact that (I think) the last 6 Super Bowl participants in the NFC have all been the #1 or #2 seed... so I guess the bye week does matter. That being said, my money is on SF vs Baltimore (or KC).
  12. CFB Playoff wins: Jake Fromm 1 Justin Fields 0 Last's night's game showed exactly why Fromm was made the starter at UGA and Fields had to transfer because he didn't want to ride the pine behind Fromm. He looked the same last night as he did at UGA... if first read wasn't open he was lost with no idea where to go with the ball. He has a lot of skills but he can't read defenses anywhere near to the ability that Fromm can. Bottom line. He's just not there yet. If he had been patient and stayed in the QB room at UGA who knows... but he left because he wasn't starting. He had a ton of poor throws last night. I'll give him credit for the throw on 4th and 2 and I'll give him credit for handing the ball off to the RB who broke the 2 big runs. That's pretty much it. His 40 TD 1 int stat vs weak competition went out the window last night. Fields is who I thought he was. Not there yet and definitely not the game breaker that you are making him out to be when you called Fromm "mediocre." I'm sure Fields will continue to break all kinds of records vs the West Virginia Community College's on their schedule... but we saw last night what he does against top competition which was the same thing he did at UGA... not a whole lot. Cheers!
  13. Like every other QB in the nation at one point or another. Done with this debate... but am looking forward to Pickens next year. Dude is only a freshman. Go Clemson.
  14. LOL... Fields looked lost vs good competition. Sure he's looked good this year playing the OSU schedule.. but you forgot to mention the 9 fumbles to go with the 40 TDs. As said though, my issue with the guy isn't his on field ability... it's the fact he played the race card... and I stand by that. Edit: In defense of Fromm... how many receivers did he lose from last year's squad and how many passes this season were dropped? Haters gonna hate.
  15. But will Fields play the race card and demand a trade when he doesn't get the starting job? Eason sat out a year when he transferred... obviously the NCAA thought Fields was special. Here's to him crashing and burning vs Clemson tomorrow.
  16. Yep. That's his legacy... 28-3. Now let me get back to being a 35+ year Falcons fan living in Seattle and listening to how great the Seahawks are day after day year after year. 56-0 with a 4 point lead at halftime under Carroll. Russell Wilson being Russell Wilson. 7 years of consistency since Wilson arrived. Wilson Wilson Wilson. Girlfriend and all my friends are Seahawks fans. I moved here in 2011 and never hopped on the bandwagon even when the LOB won them their SB. Still hard not to be jealous of a team that gets it done year after year... especially this year with IMHO less talent outside of the QB position than the Falcons currently have. Must be the coaching.
  17. Weird. Didn't pay any attention to the scoreboard today (I'm at work) and I just check and see the Falcons beat the Saints. I have that same "WTF just happened" feeling that I had in the closing moments of 28-3. Seriously. This can't be the same team from the first 8 games.
  18. I stopped by the forums to see if there was any news on the firing of DQ and decided to read this thread. Not gonna lie... the football fan in me died that night and I've followed the Falcons for 30+ years. I just lost interest. I mean, how do you recover from 28-3 as a fan? I remember sitting there looking at the family saying "WTF just happened?" Hasn't been the same since. Sure I'll check the scoreboard but I don't even have to do that this year... 1-7 LOL let me just check back on Black Monday to see if our new coach gets a top 3 pick. I'm over the 28-3 memes and endless trolling from Saints fans... but I can say with 100% certainty the Falcons could be up 50-0 and I'd be worried they'll blow it. What's funny is it's not just a Falcons thing... it seems like it's a Georgia sports thing in general. I mean, outside of 1995 what have we had to cheer about? 28-3? 1998? 2012 NFCCG? The Braves run of almosts... UGA vs Bama I and II... I mean wow. It's like teams from this state just can't close the deal and it's super frustrating to be a fan.
  19. Glad I moved out west 8 years ago... I don't have easy access to watching this s*#&show of a team on the TV. In all honesty I'm never gonna recover from 28-3... lost interest in football and this team after that. Now I'll check the scoreboards on occasion and post once or twice a year on the forums like I'm doing now. That being said... DQ is a joke of a coach. I was all for the guy when he was hired but meh...
  20. Fail Mary... the Detroit game... Their fans out here are firing up the trash talk for the playoffs. I don’t think they’ve beaten anyone above .500 yet.
  21. I bet $100 preseason with a Seahawks fan and a Raiders fan at work that Atlanta would have a better season than both. Seattle 7-5 Atlanta 4-9 Oakland 3-10 I’m praying for a split...
