Sports Illustrated NFL Preview...

Here I am pumped when I see my NFL Preview has come in the mail. I open it up to find us predicted to come in 3rd in the South while Carolina makes the playoffs AND wins a playoff game. They also had the Steelers as Super Bowl champs. WHAT? SI has gone mad.

So you were pumped about a publication thinking they would be drinking as much Falcon koolaid as you do then got upset when they didn't?

Falcons won't win the division, the golden boy QB is going to have a tough year.

You must take it with a grain of salt. I've realized over the years that these experts and their picks get paid to do the same things we do on these very boards and more than half of the time, we have better insight on how things could and will turn out. Everyone is entitled to their opinion when it comes down to it. Picking sleepers or picking underdogs or teams that could rise up is the norm in today's NFL because it could simply happen and that's the beauty.

In 2007 Miami won 1 game, only to come back in '08 and win 11 games and qualify for the playoffs. You just never know. When people pick anyone teams to win, it's all great and dandy, but when they don't hear something it's all disrespect and what not. It is what it is, don't listen to it.

Hey Jigga, aren't you the same guy that said the Falcons would finish below the Sucs last year, and said that Ryan would be god-awful in the pros? You're funny. Other than that, you offer no insight or facts to argue with. You're less than a troll, you're a joke. You might as well be a pimple on Vick-75's _ss. Thanks

What happened to all of the "we" stuff and "our" QB.

How does it feel to even be a failure as a troll?

Failing troll can't even do that successfully..... :lol::lol::lol:

Uh..............and their predictions are supposed to mean something ??

Get serious.

However, the lower the Falcons are rated the better. Less pressure, less attention, less BS.

Matt Moore always has poor preseasons, according to Panthers fans, if he plays up to the potential he showed last year, I could see a NFC East type season for the South with 3 teams making it. otherwise, the Panthers aren't going to get in there.

the Panthers always play well because they are coached well.

I think Carolina will be better than most think...but I disagree with them being 2nd in the South

I think it is a definite possibility that Atlanta will be battling out with Carolina for the division instead of New Orleans. I was 50/50 in my pick with them against the Giants but I gave it to NY because they are at home.

I have to say, I read that preview in SI a couple of days ago, and I found it very interesting that the whole preview was about the defense, and that there was nothing about the offense.

And the person who wrote it did seem to have some knowledge of the Falcons, like they had watched some of the games last year. What was it that it said about the secondary? It was spot on regarding last year.
