Yes, and what does that have to do with anything? I'm merely pointing out stats, not trying to say we will be the ubber team going into the season, just fun to see where some of our younger guys stack up compared to others.

i too was looking at stats. it just seemed to bring back memorys of the predictions going into the 1st game last year with all the excitement on how the foulcons were going to be the champs of the south. somehow i dont think they knew what was expected of them :lol::lol::lol:

i wonder if anyone told them this year

We actually did really well at the beginning of the year (defensively) and if it wasn't for our horrible kicker at the beggining of the year we could have won more games. Who knows what confidence would have done for the team last year.

Yeah we definitely found many ways to lose last year, but with the play of our offensive line and our horrible running game we didn't deserve to win many games. Our defense was a lot better than it was ranked last year, but they were out on the field way too much. I like the Michael Turner pick up, and if the O-Line can give us a push, 9-10 wins isn't out of the question, but it is hard to win with a rookie QB so I'm not gonna hold breath.

its hard to win with excessive turnovers and penalties. imo these will do this team more damage this season than the rookie qb

see, the delusion has reached epic levels around here. It's so bad that they think preseason stats mean something, they think these stats will carry over into the season. I have never seen so much insanity on a team's MB before. It's hirlaious, entertaining and sad all at the same time

Been some very pleasant surprises.

Ryan, really cant call surprise, you should be pretty goood if you are top 10. (Unless of course you are a DE which everyone knows take 3 years to develop)

Bakers and Lofton assuming starting positions is very good but also reflects on last years weakness.

DBs especially Grimes play has been miraculous.

Bierman and Turner are who we thought they were.

Im finding myself trying to argue with sum of them... I'll learn.

You antifalcons, do realize this is a falcon message board specifically for Falcon FANS?? Right?? So of course true fans should be upbeat about their team, that is why they are fans. If you don't really like it GO AWAY. As for all you guys quoting JIGGA, and Consistant, please stop, I ignore them and then see their stupid posts in your quotes, and it annoys me to no end, to see their stupidity.
