  1. I see a lot of posters still saying our offense has been an issue this season, or that Koetter/Ryan has struggled, and sure, if you look at the raw numbers like total ypg and total points scored one could conclude we have been either average or above average (7th in ypg and 16 in ppg). However if we look deeper into the numbers and use some stats that account for the lack of possessions that the Falcons have had thanks to their historically bad defensive performance so far, where we rank dead last in franchise history in points allowed and third-worst in Defensive SRS according to PFF, then w
  2. UNBELIEVABLE! We are currently the Dolphins hidden by the success of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. We are a complete joke of an organization right now! I will not watch anymore Falcons games until Dan Quinn leaves now! I'm sick and tired of this BS! Year after year after year!
  3. Or are we really aren't as talented as we think we are? There's multiple former pro bowlers on this team. The Falcons have so many flaws and problems right now the list is too long to make. Some of these problems, such as bad special teams coverage, horrible starting field position, our offensive line/running back not getting a yard, our defense being mediocre as usual, have been problems with the Falcons for several years now, even in the Mike Smith years. The difference is when we had good teams, we got away with these problems but it always came back to hunt us somewhere in the postseason.
  4. You know what I'm worried about the most at this point? Since our loss to the Chargers in 2016, we've literally lost every AFC game in the preseason and regular season except for the Jets on the road in 2017. Seriously. Since the 2016 Chargers, that's 10 AFC losses out of our last 11 AFC games, and if you throw in our 11 straight preseason losses (only one of those was against a NFC team) so that's 10 AFC preseason losses added on. We've lost a total of 20 of our last 21 games to AFC opponents in the preseason and regular season combined. YIKES, and the 2019 version of the AFC South will be to
  5. Okay then. Let me show you the numbers and what Matt Ryan is having to deal with this year. Defensive Drive Stats Overall Defensive Efficiency Quarterback Rankings https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2018/12/14/18140840/matt-ryans-magic-has-covered-up-who-the-real-atlanta-falcons-are Alright Matt Ryan HATERS, try coming at me after all of this! Try to back me up after all of THIS!!!!! What are the EXCUSES NOW!!!!! Man I get so tired of it. Granted, was never a big fan of him getting all that mon
  6. This is according to pro football reference, BTW, and we still have 4 more games to play. Also, for the 2016 season, I wonder if that was with the postseason games included or not, since 2016 is at #3 at 29 sacks which is shocking to me. Anyways, I'm not surprised with the bad O-line play this year, especially on this 4 game losing streak where we've haven't even reached the 20 point mark. Only scored 9 offensively yesterday. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/play-index/pgl_finder.cgi?request=1&match=single&player_id=RyanMa00&year_min=1950&year_max=2018&season_st
  7. There's been no word of Matt's injury so I'm assuming he's fine but I was listening to Arch's weekly post game interview with Matt. It was only about 2 mins long but Matt said something that kinda raised another red flag IMO. Arch asked Matt what do they got to do to improve or something along those lines and Matt said "We need to make adjustments sooner". Is this Matt's way of saying the coaches aren't doing their jobs or is it just me?
  8. When it's 3rd and 15, down by 17, you can't throw a 7 yard pass. Austin Hooper had about a million 7 yard catches today also. I understand that the pressure and coverage can dictate a checkdown. The problem is, the other team is WANTING us to take the checkdowns. We need to give a man a chance to make a play down the field! We don't have time for checkdowns when the other team is ahead and still scoring!
  9. So since it "looks" like Matt is missing throws, but also the rec are not catching it, it seems like its execution, OK this offense is totally inept at this point and in this game. Something bigger is happening. The talk has been about Ryans mechanics, is that what is giving him issues?? they have got to figure out how much of an issue that is. He is off, but why are you changing something that has gotten you MVP ?? to extend your career? to do something different. Should we expect a year of regression ? if so ok - I just wish we could get enough evidence to support tha
  10. Does anyone remember the notorious poster who said Matt "Noodle Arm" Ryan would never be elite because his wife was not a supermodel? He actually was a knowledgeable fan, but his Ryan rants were both ignorant and classic. If he posted a Ryan thread, it was going 20 pages deep. It's time to bring Swift and his 20 alter egos back to TATF.
  11. It suddenly appeared in my recommended videos list. Didn't even look for it. Didn't even know it existed on YouTube. Rare footage of Ryan running a triple-option offense in his high school days at Penn Charter.
  12. I usually don't post much and have been a season ticket holder for over 10+ years but wanted to give a huge shout out to my section (235) for chanting "MVP"! It felt like a playoff atmosphere and I hope it was heard on TV! -Cheers, Rise Up!

  14. He would win the NFL Most Valuable Player this year. If Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady had put up the same numbers Ryan had put up this year (regardless) of win total they would walk away with this award. The link below has a nice write up about Ryan's career year and campaign for MVP. http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/why-matt-ryan-is-the-nfl-s-most-valuable-player-in-2016-122716
  15. Yesterday after watching the game, I was ranting and raving to my friends about how we need to get rid of Shanahan and that his offense was garbage. They rightfully pointed out that we scored 24 points and the main reason we lost was because we gave up 31 points. It was hard to counter this because though I saw that the defense played terribly in spots, I felt like the offense was worse and I actually put more blame on them. After thinking it over I realized why that is. It's easy to say we scored 24 points so you can't blame the offense too much but we only scored two TDs. One of them wa

  17. New head coach and weak schedule and our 50th season....excitement builds for every Falcon fan! First few games, Shannahan uses Freeman and Julio as key players very effectively and Freeman plays with a chip on his shoulders. The team is excited and plays hard and with resilience even Kroy saves the day. We go 5-0 despite some very close calls and games that we could have easily lost. The Saints kill our undefeated hopes and make us look like the not so great team that many thought we were, (including me) starting our turnover woes including to many bonehead plays by Ryan. A game or two late
  18. I don't understand why people are hating on Matt Ryan. Sure, he is making some bone-head decisions but at some point, all QBs do. When we were looking for a coach, many people wanted Rex Ryan because he was a strong defensive-minded coach and all we had to do offensively was patch up a few holes on the O-line and we'd be "great". Now a new OC has our offense looking worse than we ever have, our run game is still inconsistent even with a better RB, our play calling is predictable, outright dumb at times and we barely run the no huddle. All of a sudden it's our consistent QB's fault that is
  19. I have been reading a lot of threads lately and listening to a little bit of talk radio. I have to say what I have been hearing is worrisome at the very least. I understand the disappointment in the fanbase, as a fan of decades this season is no stranger to me. We have certainly seen many like it. Still, this time it is a bit different. We were winners not too long ago, consistent winners for the first time ever actually. This is obviously not a lack of talent problem we are facing, because we have only lost a few guys from that 2012 NFCCG team. In truth we, as a fanbase, need to step up
  20. I know that when your offense scores 28 points on the road, they problably did a good job and you´re supposed to win the game. And those two INT by Matty were most a result of the pressure that the falcons defense put on the offense, to try to make something happened. It was just desperation caused by our D. But in the first half Matt Ryan threw 5 times to Julio Jones, for 5 catches and 70 yards, but then when the falcons needed the most he didn´t look for him. In the second half Matt threw at him 3 times, for one catch for 12 yards. The others throws were; one, a bad one by numero 2 and a lo
  21. Don't know if this has been discussed but does anyone have any stories of Ryan bonding or doing anything nice with his O-Line outside work? Like, I think Russell Wilson bought all his olinemen Xbox Ones, Brady taking them all out to eat at a buffet. Etc. Also I'd like to know of other activities QB's do if anyone knows. Think I heard someone say they went go Karting or some sh** Anyways. How well do you think it builds comradery and chemistry when QB's do that, and do you think they respond well to Ryan. Random topic, yes, but it's the offseason. Thoughts? Suggestions on what he should do?
  22. I see a lot of posts on here saying that Ryan needs to step up, and he needs to make a play in the red zone, and how playcalling is unimaginitive, and we need to fire the coach that hired the OC and DC's that are clearly failing us...tell that to Steven Jackson and Levine Toilolo. If either of these guys can close their hands and clamp on a pass Ryan put in their hands, we have a 3-1 team, and we are all talking about how we are going to destroy the Jets. Instead, we are talking about firing the coach, and how the QB needs to step up. Ryan didn't have a great game with his accuracy, but he
  23. The offseason is boring, but one thing that might give us a little reprieve would be to get everyone under contract. At the very least it would give us something to talk about. So, with us now being a month removed from the draft, who do think gets signed first. Both our first and last draft picks are still unsigned and we have heard nothing about when their signings may take place. Ryan's contract, on the other hand, has produced seemingly endless amounts of arguably pointless speculation that may end up having no value whatsoever. His deal is being projected to be before TC, but it's kinda q
