I have the Falcons finishing 12-4, or possibly 13-3 or 11-5. That week 2 game against Carolina scares me. It will be a defining game for sure! I think ATL will lose to New England. Then they'll win their next 4 games to move their record to 6-1. They'll beat the Bears 31-28 on a last minute Ryan-lead TD drive. They'll beat a disappointing Dallas team in Week 7. They MIGHT lose to the Saints in Week 8, but I hope not! I think they'll lose to a vastly improved Washington team, then lose again the following week to Carolina. I think they'll then go on a 5 game winning streak--beating an injury depleted Giants team in Wk 11. I think they'll sweep Tampa Bay and beat the Jets handily, bcuz those teams are expected to have down years. I think the Falcons will lose to a Buffalo team striving to make the playoffs and a hot T.O. in week 16.

Will they win the division? I don't know...I have Carolina finishing 12-4 and New Orleans 11-5--unless NO beats Car in the last week, then their records will be reversed. Any thought or opinions??

I predict 9-7. I am hoping we stay healthy for the majority of the season. We need another RB

Remaining "healthy", particularly at the skill positions, is BY FAR one of the most important elements for a successful season in 2009!

I also agree with your assessment regarding needed depth / action at RB. I think Snelling is a beast of runner and should see the ball at least 8 times per game . This will also help Turner and Norwood throughout the season, especially with the early bye week (we got stiffed on this one).

I love Norwood's change of pace, but I still question his durability for an entire, ESPECIALLY with the bruising defenses we are going to face this year outside our division.

A 3 RB system CAN work and prove to be productive...Check the Giants RB trio from last year for the "blueprint".

I'm a believer in Ryan's ability to pick apart opposing defenses with his arm, but I would LOVE to run the ball down every defense's throat we face and EAT UP CLOCK! This equates to shorter games, a fresher defense when needed, and "the ticking time bomb" of Matty's arm (ask da Bears about last year :lol:) when defenses decide to load the box in an attempt to stop our running game! Talk about "picking your poison" :o:D

Having said all that, I predict 11 - 5 (same as last year's record).

I think I would like to know who we have on our team before making foolish speculations. :rolleyes:
Seriously.

If McClure leaves we will have lost seven starters and so far seem to be planning on replacing them with either rooks or second year rooks.

Add the schedule in and it it's kinda comical.

I love the way you guys are pencilling in these NFC South wins. This guy has us going 5-1 which we've never done and if I'm not mistaken only CAR did it in 03. Only because Doug Johnson was our QB. Laughable.

Final record: 10-6

Road record: 5-3

Division record: 4-2

NFC record: 8-4

This year I say we atleast make it to the division round.

We start off rough at 0-3 and use the bye week to get healthy mentally and physically and go on a 5 game win streak.
