Rev_Hal Posted November 3, 2008 Share Posted November 3, 2008 1. First and foremost, did this game seem surreal to anyone else? So many times over the years, we have been on the losing end of a game like this. It felt really strange to be on the winning end of this kind of situaion. I kept feeling like I was going to wake up and it be a really good dream. I'm glad I was awake. 2. That had to be one of the worst performances of any team I ahve ever seen by the Oakland Raiders. They were absolutely pathetic. I don't want to take anything away from the great play of the Falcons, but dang, they stunk. I can't remember a NFL team that performed worse than they did. If I were a Raiders fan, I would be very furious.3. Matt Ryan is the real deal. See my other thread this morning on what I think of this kid. He ran the no-huddle like a champ. The accouncers kept saying he was confused as he marched the team up and down the field. They were the confused/clueless ones. Ray was hot.4. I understand the conservative play calling in the second half, but the game got MORING. Mularkey should have used the second half as an opportunity to open up the playbook and give Ryan more experiencw with new plays/formations.5. The defense played great. It's hard to tell how great since the Raiders were so bad, but it was a definate improvement. I hope they maintain this enthusiasm agains the Saints.6. Is there no better unemployed tackle in the league than Wayne Gandy? Really? Really?7. There is a God. It was proven yesterday. Our prayers were answered, and Adam Jenkins was deactivated. Douglas needs more practice at the position, but he at leaste did nothing terribly stupid. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
