  1. might want to ask the colts' staff how to get receivers open vs a zone defense!!! that might be the dumbest thing i've ever heard--we couldn't figure a way to get open against a zone! surely that was taken out of context...if not...maybe someone should show ridley and koetter the routes indy ran because their receivers and tight ends were not only open they were WIDE FREAKING OPEN ALL DAY LONG!!!!!! give me a break!
  2. i think we'll win. should be a blow out but quinn loves to try to win games on the last possession. but i will say this--if we lose to the tennessee titans at home--i'm done devoting my sundays to watching the crap i've seen so far this year and most of last year. i'm 52 years old and have been watching the falcons since i was five years old--obviously it hasn't been easy being a fan of this franchise...and never in my wildest dreams would i ever have even thought about missing a game--but--i'm sick of it! i'm sick of their lack of preparedness! i'm sick of players taking plays off! i'm sick of freeman cutting the wrong way on virtually every run he makes! i'm sick of watching quinn mis-manage in-game scenarios! i'm sick of going to flowery branch and watching players sit out of practices! i'm sick of watching other nfl teams' offenses run up and down the field against us--but see that same offense struggle in the weeks prior to and afterwards! i'm sick of our "talented" wr group never getting any separation! I'm sick of the lack of time Ryan has to throw! I'm sick of watching our defense fail to get to the qb! i'm sick of watching opposing qb's escape the grasps of our mean d-line and line-backers! i'm sick of all the freaking penalties! I'm sick of julio coming off the field after every other play! i'm sick of not drafting defensive players from alabama! I'm sick of everyone saying my team sucks! i've been sick for years of watching whatever it is we call special teams with the exception of matt bryant! i'm sick of stupid playcalling! i'm sick of poor tackling! i'm sick of TD, DQ, and THE BROTHERHOOD! other than that--i can't wait to watch this game sunday! but if we lose to this crap team--i'm done with the falcons until they get rid of TD, DA-I mean DQ and anyone else associated with the aforementioned post! titans 22 falcons 38
  3. well they actually did get off the field but there was a "bogus" defensive holding call on kazee that had absolutely no bearing on the play. qb running to his non throwing hand side and essentially fires the ball out of bounds. my kids were up screaming and i told them--wait--watch this--there will be a flag down! sure enough--flag graphic pops up on screen! def. holding on kazee--couldn't stop them! let's face it--our defense has always sucked in that type of situation anyway--we can't ever get a stop when we have to--heck sunday we only got one stop all day! defense never forced a turnover! qb brissett looked like manning! tight ends made our secondary and backers look like high schoolers! their coach made our coach look silly! our coach made our coach look silly! after 20 something straight completions by a very sub-par qb you would think our coach would try something different with his coverages. he actually mixed it up a bit in 2nd half surprisingly but really that was too late! my philosophy has always been if you are going to get scored on any way--go ahead and bring some heat! heck you might give up a long play (eagles vs julio). but-you might also get a turnover or a drive ending sack. we simply just laid back in soft coverages and continued to do nothing! no rush plus no coverage--that can't happen but yet it does all of the time with us! heck, i bet they didn't have too many 3rd down plays--the colts were converting first downs on 1st and 2nd downs--and we finally get a 3rd & 4 with a chance to get the ball back and win the game and what happens? we get out coached again and a slow white tight end runs a simple out pattern to the right and is wide-a$$ open. no defender within 10 yards of him! UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in my line of work--that's considered unacceptable job performance!!!! if it happens once or twice--you will probably be warned, written up or talked to--but if it happens over, and over and over and over and over and over and over again--you'll be fired! bye bye quinn! i'm sure you are a great guy--but i'm sick of you coaching my favorite football team! bye.
  4. never really ever liked anyone that didn't play for the falcons--so i guess i'll go with jessie the hammer tuggle. i also really liked bartkowski, alfred jenkins, and william andrews.
  5. i have a bunch of favorites but i think my all time favorite has to be jessie tuggle. he really had a passion to win. always seemed like he really cared. he was always on those underdog falcons teams that just couldn't quite get over the hump. but i loved the way he brought it! some of my favorite memories were the hits he put on steve young, randall cunningham and several other running backs--tuggle was my favorite player and my favorite team of all time were obviously those two super bowl teams--but that '91 falcons team was so much fun to watch!
  6. he played at alabama and won college awards for being top safety in the ncaa so NO quinn wouldn't want to add him to our team. he doesn't fit our criteria: he played at alabama, he won awards for being the top safety in college football and he's a proven winner...therefore, we didn't want to draft him...instead we constantly draft reaches or guys you've never heard of!!!! my motto is lose the draft by taking top tier sec talent. top tier referring to traditionally alabama, georgia, lsu, auburn and florida all day every day. we don't need to draft linebackers from the ivy league. for every olukujon or whatever his name is--there's 5 or 6 sec players we are passing up on. you are going to get lucky every once in a while and find someone from some no-name school and everyone will talk about how great our scouting department is or how great thomas is--but i hate that thought process! go with the studs and 99 times out of 100 you'll get a better than average player. yes we've drafted several sec players but not from alabama or georgia on defense. we've taken a few from florida and lsu on defense but until deion jones we haven't had much luck with players that we've drafted from lsu. i'm talking about upper sec (alabama & georgia for defense).

  8. a few years ago when drew brees broke some td record or passing record against the redskins in a primetime game-can't remember the year. but the saints were blowing them out and all of the talk was centered on this record for brees. and after a redskins punt and change of possession--the broadcast went to commercial like normal. BUT-coming back in from the break--someone's mic (maybe the director/producer) mic was open and i heard vividly, "this is the td right here." the next shot is to the game and brees drops back and hits a wide open wr for a long td pass down the sideline. oh and to make it even better--stadium officials had just brought brees' family down to the sideline. just in time for brees to come over and celebrate with them and do a quick interview. could've been coincidence i guess. but i've worked in tv all my life--that one looked and sounded kind of fishy to me.
  9. anyone have a link for tonight's game
  10. not topic related but can you watch the preseason games live with this new falcon app????
  11. anyone have link for the game
  12. Does anyone know if the game tonight will be televised in dalton, ga? if so, what cable provider?
  13. anyone know if the game tonight will be on tv in dalton, ga?
  14. great piece on ricardo! having him back will certainly bolster our defense! he's a load at his position! also, kudos to the atlanta falcons video production team for a fantastic job as well!!!!! i work in video production myself and these guys always produce fabulous videos!
  15. keep drafting the way they do and there won't be anyone at the games.
  16. if the saints add coleman do we try to get mark ingram? if he's not too expensive--we need a strong short yardage back--freeman and what's his name--aint scoring from inside the 2 on 3rd or 4th down.
  17. virtually every game we played against the niners in the '80's and 90's. the divisional game with the niners in '98--young fumbles-tuggle picks it up in end zone for td. play goes to review. tv goes to timeout for a review. come back on air and all of the sudden there's no fumble or recovery or safey--young is ruled down at the 1/2 inch line. nfc championship at philly deuce staley catches ball in flat at 1 or 2 yard line and is immediately belted by an atlanta defender. staley is knocked off balence backwards and out of bounds on the sideline in the end zone. no safety--staley given forward progress at the one yard line. the dude had possession of the ball and went out of bounds while in the end zone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. what about the game in denver a long time ago when the officials actually gave the broncos 5 downs to get a first down? that was the old ed hoculi i believe. nfl said that we wouldn't be allowed to officiate another falcons game--low and behold i think he was the head official in the '98 super bowl with the broncos.
  19. I believe that but I don’t see it being his fault! Nobody playing good! off topic: does anyone know if roof is open or closed tomorrow for cards game?
  20. he was really special! my best friend and i went down to training camp one year in sewanee and in between the two practices we wondered into the hotel area--and in walked bill fralic. my best friend had named his dog (chow breed) Fralic-after the falcons lineman and as bill was walking by my friend said mr. fralic--and he grumbled, "yeah" and my buddy said-i named my dog after you! fralic looked down at us and said, "oh yeah, what kind of dog is it."? he said a chow and it's really mean! and fralic said, "well that's ok then!" he was so intimidating and big--but once we told him the dog was a chow--he was cool with it!
  21. i was working in the media during this season. i thought deion was doing the right thing by playing both sports. yes the braves were battling for a playoff spot toward the end of the their '91 season and even in the playoffs when he actually tried to play in both a football game and a baseball game at the same time--but the falcons were having a great year that year as well--i'm not so sure it was a problem! i really enjoyed watching him play both sports during this season. his "act" kinda got old to me during his last few years with the falcons--my feeling was we could win four games with deion or win four games without deion--so why pay him more money! looking back now--he was one of my favorite falcons of all time: bart, tuggle, andrews, haynes, rison, case, deion, ryan, julio, j. george & t.mckyer! the '91 falcons and '91 braves were two of my favorite teams of all time too!
  22. i was born and raised in the heart of falcon country in chattanooga, tn. my dad got me into watching the falcons, braves, and hawks at the very young age of 5. we watched them on tv or have went to games ever since. my whole family likes the falcons. i was a season ticket holder from '92-'01 and loved going to all of those games in the dome. i've seen the birds play on the road too: '91 wildcard playoff at new orleans was one of my favorite games period, been to clemson to see them lose to the panthers, been to charlotte, been to st. louis and to nashville. we used to go down to sewanee and watch training camp back in the day as well. good times!!! i've been to flowery branch a time or two as well. i also got to cover the falcons several times while working in television in chattanooga. those were some awesome times. i'm married now and have three boys. my boys love the falcons too. my wife--not so much! she doesn't understand why i get so upset while watching these guys! i probably should be used to it by now. but even yesterday--my blood was boiling at all of the stupid mistakes we make....but in the end it doesn't really matter because i will always root for the falcons. and hawks and braves!!! my dad trained me that way. he passed a way in 1990 and missed the '91 team which was my favorite team along with the super bowl years.
  23. i've never coached a down of football in my life. however--i am 51 years old and played tecmo bowl pretty religiously on my nintendo back in the day and just by playing that video game i understand how to call timeouts better than dan quinn. he simply doesn't have a freaking clue on when and when not to call timeouts. he is awful on any type of game management situation period! he has never impressed me with this since he's been here! it's really mind-boggling as to the amount of simple football 101 stuff he misses. i'm sure he's a great guy and everything but so am i--problem is i'm not getting paid millions of dollars. he is--and it looks like mr. blank is going to continue to let him and this staff make those idiotic basic football mistakes. now to other members of the staff that need to be gone: dimitrioff--bye keith "freaking" armstrong-BYE! i'm so sick of his return men being the laughing stock of this league. hey armstrong! please instruct your sucky returners that if the ball is kicked into the end zone that if you stay in the end zone-your offense starts at the 25 yard line. it's really pretty simple stuff! especially since we never bust a return past the 25 and if we ever DO--which is almost never--then there is a penalty! now remember-i've never coached a football game in my life-BUT-i do know the difference in the 25 yard line and inside the 10 if you decide to bring it out. yesterday--the moron didn't let it go through the end zone instead-runs it about to yards and fumbles--luckily gets it back and then ryan proceeds to throw his lazy out route to hooper that is taken to the house. starts with the special teams being dumb! to be honest i can't even think of all the bonehead stuff armstrong has been allowed to get away with since he's been here--but i do know that is punt team has given up more punt blocks than any unit in football over the past 5 years. he's a joke--i would love to know what we are paying this joke! sark: bye dude please--play action doesn't work if you can't run the ball in the first place! quit running play action if you're down more than 20 points. this isn't the falcons defense in practice--i know they fall for that crap. but any nfl defense not named atlanta is not going to bite on play action if they are up 20 or haven't given up a run all day. also, please put some throws in your plan that are more than just 10 yard curls. i'm so tired of watching the all-22 cam and not seeing one receiver beyond 10 yards! and all of these little 2 yard throws--the best thing that can happen is a 2 yard completion--the worst things are happening: sack, int. or fumble. let's just cut those out and run a draw. oh yeah, and you can't run a screen pass on a team that is not having to sell out to get to the qb. green bay rushing four doesn't tell me to throw screen. in fact, it makes me laugh! manual: bye no coverage, no legitimate pass rush, we finally had a blitz get home yesterday, line backer play is laughable-especially when riley is in the game. please meet with your front four and let them know that if all of them are within about 3-feet of the qb--they are throwing a screen!!!! dude we ain't ever getting that much heat. also, how about spending some time throwing the ball to our defenders! alford can't catch a cold, trufant has hands of stone, deion jones dropped a ball somehow yesterday that was impossible to drop--would've been a score! green bay's guy didn't drop his! k. neal dropped balls last year that cost us a playoff game. ricardo allen can't catch! what are we doing at practice? that's waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many drops! looks like julio and ridley been working with them! blank: how can you watch this crap and not do something about it? i almost could understand giving quinn another chance after all of the injuries--but after watching the last few weeks--i've changed my mine! injuries or not--quinn has not improved on any in game stuff since the first day he got here! it's time to cut bait with him! probably should've been done after the super bowl debacle! definitely needs to happen now! as for the other guys i mentioned--they should already be gone! this is coming from a guy that's missed 0 games since 1972! season ticket holder in the dome from '92-01! and someone that actually still cares about this franchise. don't wait any longer--this team needs new blood and a lot better coaches!
