We haven't faced an 0-3 team this year...there I fixed it for you!

that's why I said 'currently 0-3' meaning 0-3 as of the time I made the post.

reading comprehension....it's FANTASTIC!!!

Kolb is 1-1 which puts him above both the teams you have beat so far. only an idiot would not choose the Kolb led Eagles as a favorite over both Miami and Carolina from what has been shown 3 weeks into the season

kolb played the chiefs. starting qbs are 29-6 against the chiefs over the last 3 years and they've averaged a 91 qb rating over the last two years.

my only problem with using the whole "falcons haven't beat a team that's won a game yet" is that all 3 of the teams the panthers and phins played last year were in the playoffs last year or they were knocking on the door. it's not like they've played the chiefs, the raiders, the lions or anybody so far this year. the panthers and the phins are better than their records indicate. you can't tell me that the 3-0 broncos are better than the phins or the panthers. you can't tell me that the 1-2 raiders that have jamarcus russell completing 41% of his passes, are better than the phins or panthers. a lot of you picked us to lose to the phins or panthers before the season, but after we beat them then it's "they haven't won a game yet!".

I agree that after 3 games it's hard to get a good read on how good anybody truly is

Here is my argument at it's essence. I would bet on a Kolb led Eagles team to beat both Miami and Carolina

now you may disagree with that, but you cannot say that claim is unreasonable either.

it's definitely not unreasonable. i think the kolb lead eagles beat the phins every day of the week, penny or no penny. i think the panthers just played a really bad game against the eagles to open up the season, so that game could go either way.

We come off the bye and face a formiddable opponent in the 49ers on the road. Gore or no Gore I expect a dogfight...I know, I know, watch the dogfight references!

only when you play the Eagles

I agree that the 49ers are a much tougher team than expected. If I were Atlanta, I would rather have played them this week and have the bye after...make it one of those good bounce back games

why do we need a break jh? According to you guys we suck anyways so we'll lose without him in the lineup. I mean its not like we were facing Stafford or kolb right?

I don't think they will but Gore was having a beast of a season so far.

Make up your mind already.
