Sometimes I just want to give up being a Falcons fan.

Jesus has this team fallen into **** since April. 7 months. My god what a terrible 7 months.

What is Reeves doing?

Dan Reeves is the ONLY coach I can think of right now who would be willing to come here. Face it, Blank is not going to get another college coach, and no moderately successful NFL coach is going to try to revive his career with the shambles of this team. Reeves would probably like a shot at redemption, but if he's not game for this, I think this franchise will probably just go extinct

Man, how times have changed. We've gone from one of this franchise's worst moments to perhaps the finest season in it's history.

Bumping this old thread to try and see the difference between now and then, to gain a perspective on just how far we've come in three short years.

I don't hope to see another year like 2007, but in retrospect I think it was necessary. It brought real change.

I posted in a different thread that was on the board at the same time this one started that maybe '07 would prove to be a huge "enema year."....that maybe all of the toxic stuff associated with the franchise would be gone and that we could start anew....with new hope.

I didn't think in my wildest dreams that we would turn it around this quickly.

I'd like to point out I had season tickets during the 07 season... it wasn't a particularly happy time.

Oh, and since we are on the 3 year anniversary, I was at that Monday night game, where Petrino managed to negotiate and learn the pig suey and sign and travel to the Arkansas job within 24 hours

I think we will be fine. We should hire the head of scouting in ne to be our gm. Dimetreohov I think. Then draft a qb , maybe that kid from Boston college . He looks pretty solid .

Yeah, but if we're going for a rookie QB we need a solid RB to take the pressure off. Who's out there in the FA market? How bout the kid backing up LT? What's his name...Taylor?

Anyway, think about it...we coulda had LT instead of this dog fighting QB that left us high and dry.

;)

God, it's a good feeling being 10-2. Maybe someone heard our prayers and suffering.

You ever had one of those nightmares where you wake up and you are totally relieved it was just a bad dream? Thats how I felt with this post. I did not check the date and I thought that we had traded Ryan or some other ungodly bad move or injury. I felt like I was reliving the 1980 Dallas playoff game all over again. I'm glad it was just a nightmare!

To watch him do that on SportsCenter really got my blood boiling. Probably the worst thing about '07.

Man, I was actually watching SC right then. At first, when I read "resigns" I thought it said "re-signs", and I was wondering who would have actually extended Petrino on his 5 year deal after barely putting an offense together (the D was pretty good). I just couldn't imagine you play that Monday Night Game, and Tuesday night you are making some foolish pig call on TV.
