  1. Ryan has really never been known for his arm strength...and I don't think he has lost much...his accuracy was what he has been known for. I've said this in previous posts, but he truly looks like a guy with no confidence in the playcalling...very hesitant and unsure....seems tentative whenever he throws. I don't know...just thinking out loud. This game was such a dud. Taints that pass from Gage
  2. What's your opinion....Ryan? Koetter? IMO, Ryan doesn't look confident...like he's unsure of the play or too worried about making a mistake. It's weird because he was usually fearless and took a lot of chances. But I guess it does come down to Koetter and his predictable conservative play-calling. Heck I don't know. I get too emotional about the team sometimes to see what the truth is.
  3. What I don't get is why does the offense CONTINUE to look like they're in slow motion? That entire side of the ball seems like they are indecisive and are too worried about making a mistake. I don't see any swagger, any confidence, and everyone seems to have a slight bit of confusion. And I don't want to say "Koetter sucks" (even though he does), but there is way too much talent on offense to have played like they have this year, for the most part. Ryan has usually excelled at no huddle/hurry-up...why in the heck don't they just decide to do this mid-first quarter to shake things up? There really isn't an easy answer....we can all posit on what our opinion is...I just don't get it.
  4. Ok...I'll admit the term "always" was too strong...but when I read this story I thought of three things instantly - 1) Deion's pick six with the 49ers 2) Jeff George coming back to ATL with the Raiders and winning 3) Keith Brooking mocking the dirty bird on the Cowboy's sideline. I'm not dramatic bro...yeah sometimes I get emotional but so what? I didn't realize you were so much better than others on here.
  5. Wonderful...Beasley will probably top that Rams game from 2016 and Takk will have the announcers going "How did the Falcons let this guy go???" Got a sick feeling...crap like this ALWAYS comes back to haunt us.
  6. Until Morris figures out a way to put a game away in the 4th quarter, he's not even in my consideration for HC next year. I am so sick of not being able to enjoy a game knowing ATL will always let the other team make it close in the 4th.
  7. I was just talking about modern times, but yes that Dallas game will forever haunt me. The 1980 Falcons were such a good team and choked it away.
  8. Sadly this "theme" started back in the 2012 season (2013 actual game) against SF in the NFC Championship, in my opinion. ATL had a 24-14 lead at halftime and blew it..not one point in the second half. Even though the scores don't reflect it, the two playoff games for the 2106 season had me really worried for a little while, honestly. And of course the Super Bowl. I think I'm so shell-shocked when ATL is leading in the 4th quarter that I can't relax. Going into the 4th quarter this week they were up 27-6. There is absolutely NO reason I shouldn't be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a perceived blowout...nope...sitting there sick to my stomach hoping they can hang on in the closing seconds. In the 4th quarter other teams go into Madden-mode...just absolutely ridiculous with the numbers they put up, and seem to pull of miraculous comebacks. Because of this I don't want Morris back next year...unless they somehow pull of a miracle and win the Super Bowl. The entire org needs an entire NEW staff...no retreads, no bringing back a coach that used to be here, a completely fresh staff. **** I forgot the point...I'm high...haha
  9. Good...that's about all I can say without cursing 😁
  10. I took a class in college called "Sports Psychology". There was a term we were taught called 'learned helplessness'. So when things start looking doubtful, you start thinking "here we go again". I can see it almost every weekend.
  11. I give one year under a new GM/HC to see what Ryan and Julio can do. I know both are on the other side of their prime...but I say give it one more year. That being said, I do think its time to draft a QB to sit behind Ryan for a year or so.
  12. As a UGA fan, this is at least one bright spot on the ATL season 😜
  13. I'm just not sold on Lawrence. I stated this in another topic, but I just don't see "franchise QB" when I watch him. I really wish I could put my finger on why, its just a gut feeling.
  14. Yep...the rah rah (while not bad) works more in college. He is definitely a passionate coach, and I think his personality would work very well in college.
  15. I'm honestly glad they got rid of the Pro Bowl. Before free agency was put in place, it used to be at least a little interesting because they weren't as afraid of getting hurt and losing out an a big free agent deal. Plus, during the 80's and early 90's it was my last chance to see someone running around with a Falcons' helmet since ATL usually had one guy that would make it on the roster. It was a good way to end the season...just wind everything down like detoxing a drug addict. I don't know why I still watch it...I really don't. It gets more boring as the years go by. Just name an All-Pro team, do something to honor it, and don't have a game.
  16. DQ and Mike Smith are professionals...the other two clowns were just that...clowns. And I do wish DQ the best.
  17. Completely agree...I think he'd make a very good college HC depending on the school/conference. Like most people, I like the guy, and can't imagine what it would be like to be the HC of a team that blew the biggest lead in SB history, but it was DEFINITELY time to move on (stating the obvious) ****, those three quarters thinking ATL was going to win might be as close as I ever get to seeing them win a Super Bowl...sigh...
  18. Ah ok...thanks for the details.
  19. Man I would love for the next draft to have a franchise QB, but for some reason I'm just not sold on Lawrence...wish I could put my finger on it. Watching Burroughs at LSU I could tell he'd do well in the NFL...I don't know why, but something has me hesitant about Lawrence.
  20. I thought I heard on NFL network the team only owes him 5.5 million for next year. Yeah, I know, ONLY 5.5 Million but you know what I mean. If it was 20 Million or something, I could see it.
  21. I have a feeling, and some other sports talking-heads feel the same, that this team may be gutted in the offseason. The team has MUCH bigger problems than Matt Ryan, but I do have to admit I have noticed a strength drop-off this year. The "quick" outside passes seem to take a while. It sucks because I have loved his career here...best QB the team has ever had...but I hate to say...I can't see a whole lot of teams wanting to sign him as a high dollar free agent if the Falcons do want to move on. So yeah, he might hang it up. Feel bad for the guy.
