  1. yes i did..i saw tom waddle of the bears beat him for two long touchdowns and horace copeland from tampa beat him twice in same game--then do two flips on him.
  2. i loved deion too, but i saw him get beat a bunch of times too! i guess it came down to, do we spend all that money on one guy that we just went 3-13 with or, do we save some of "deion's money" and try to get a few more players to be more competitive. Obviously I would've loved to have Deion for the duration of his career--but at what cost? The Falcons were a playoff team in '95 after he'd been gone a few years. They went to the Super Bowl in '98 without him--so I'm not sure how to take this. Deion won the Super Bowl with the Niners I believe-Rison won it with Favre and Green Bay. We definitely had the pieces to win a title with that '91 team--ownership just couldn't find a way to keep them together. Favre admits he wasn't going to be anything in Atlanta because of the way he was acting. Rison left as a free agent a year or two later after Deion and Miller blew his knee out...the rest is history. That '91 team was still my favorite Falcons team of all time--followed closely by the two super bowl teams and the '80 team.
  3. i've watched these drafts in every sport for about 40 years now and it happens every time an atlanta teams' pick is up. then they come back from the break--announce the pick and then get right into who's picking next. and in the case this year--with the cowboys next, there wasn't even a doubt they would spend more than a minute talking about atlanta's pick.
  4. i love that smile DQ had right after the pick was in--like he just hit the lottery or something! really??????????????
  5. if we keep drafting corners every year--surely one of them is going to hit! but i doubt it! this dude is ok but not exactly who i was expecting. hope i'm wrong!
  6. wouldn't have waited that long--would've made sure i got who i wanted. just like every other team in the league did except us. all quinn's boys were gone--so he hit the panic button! would rather have the lsu backer or the safety mckinney from bama.

  8. same old crap!!!! why corner? got to have a push rush first. we had deion and as good as he was--he couldn't cover guys all day. same ole blank, D-Q, i mean D-A and same ole dummy-troff!!!! nice knowing you quinn and thomas--bye bye!
  9. '80, '91, '98 & '16 of those four--that '91 team was so fun to watch and i got to go to the wildcard game that year in new orleans--that was crazy good!!!
  10. yes--i actually thought this was one of the first times every that quinn made a smart "in-game" coaching decision with time management.
  11. dude it's not that hard. if there's two receivers on the same side of the field and we are in a man defense-if i'm the outside corner or lined up outside--i'm taking whichever "man" goes to the outside. if i'm inside defender--i'm taking whichever receiver that goes "inside." how hard is that to figure out. if for some reason they both run inside--i stay with my initial guy. he** i learned that in backyard football.
  12. just let them have him and campbell too!!! addition by subtraction!
  13. no pass rush at all--so one would think with only 3 or 4 rushing that surely we would have some people in the back covered--should be 7 or 8 back because they sure as he** aren't rushing the passer! this crap is ridiculous! i'm a teacher and basketball coach and today i ate lunch with one of our assistant football coach. this guy played college football at shorter. we watched the highlights of the cards-falcons game. he's a fan of the cowboys so he didn't watch falcons game sunday. when he watched our highlights his mind was blown at the lack of the defense, missed assignments, just straight up terrible tackling. how can our assistant football coach look at our defensive tape and right off the bat say, "can't possibly be lined up right, who's responsible for the rb, why is #20 lined up on the line in the goal line defense, etc, etc, etc. guys quinn has totally lost it! we constantly do these things week in and week out. deion jones not forcing a ball carrier inside to where he has help near the goal line. this is basic football stuff! how blank has let this go for so long is unbelievable. please tell me why would quinn not onside kick after bryant missed the extra point? 1:53 on the clock and we only have two timeouts...that is a no-brainer! one first down wins the game for the cards. so atleast give yourself two opportunities to get possession back. 1 with an onside kick recovery, 2-by getting your defense to make a 3-down stop and getting the ball back with right around a minute to go with no timeouts. quinn elected to give away the number one opportunity by kicking deep. why? our defense has only stopped them 3x all game. now grant it--zona is stupid too. sooooo stupid that it almost let quinn get away with not kicking the onside kick-as murray really didn't get that first down and he went out of bounds to boot. should've been a kicking situation for the cards with the clock stopped. instead after instant replay clearly showed he didn't get the first down-the officials ruled first down and that's your ball game. quinn should've kicked the onside!!!! he's a complete moron when it comes to in-game decision making. was sunday, was the first game he coached in the preaseason years ago, and will always be--and whoever they hired to help him with that this year is an idiot too.
  14. 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!
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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).

  21. 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.
