thempizzle Posted December 15, 2008 Share Posted December 15, 2008 As I sit here unable to sleep of the sheer exhaustion that I went through earlier today...The fumble at the 1... THE BLOCKED PUNT.How many times did you ask yourself: "How is this happening?" How many times did you tell yourself: "It's okay, Matt's got another chance."I know I did. I honestly continued to feel that we should put the ball in his hands. I don't care that he threw two picks, he's already earned all of my confidence. In overtime... he delivered. He continued to fight. Those runs... he never runs. He had to make plays and he picked up crucial yards when we really needed them. He knew how to do it.It was very very very very ugly. We will say this was one of the worst games of his career... but when it came down to it, in overtime.... he won. He won the worst game he has played as a Falcon.That is a testament to our defense. Everybody was talking about how Tampa had to come out and stop the run. How Tampa couldn't let up two weeks in a row.Well, neither could we. Our defense held them to a field goal after the blocked punt. Our defense held them to 10 total points regardless of turnovers.Our defense is not our better unit, but today they were.That is a GREAT sign of what is to come. LETS GO! If we play how we played today defensively and our offense is clicking... we can beat any team. We HAVE BEATEN the precious Carolina Panties by multiple scores. Let's not sleep on ourselves. Let's believe. We CAN beat any team in this league. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
