The Rust Is Coming Off

I really did not like the way the team handled the pre-season games. After a long lockout and a short camp, they should have used those games to knock the rust off of the veterans and get the new acquisitions used to playing at NFL speed. I think the game against the Bears showed a lot more rust than the coach expected and the timing was not there. Fortunately, they took that beating and turned it into motivation for the rest of the season. They must have worked really hard last week to prepare to play the Eagles and they got the job done.

As the next several games go by, I expect the timing between Matt and the receivers to improve tremendously and the vets to return to last years form.

I agree. They acted if they didnt need the work in pre-season.

Dont worry new guy/girl.. I'm in the same boat.. I can't start a new topic though I've been a member for going on a year (just read the boards for a couple years before that). But these new user names pop up outta no where starting new threads.

It's somewhat annoying, but I honestly have no need to start a thread -- all the 'members' keep the topic train rolling well enough.

Ah okay. I can probably live with that. 100 posts is nothing compared to how much people post and argue here all the time. And I love to defend the Falcons!

This board has a quantity over quality problem with new threads. Every dumb thought that strikes someone upside the head gets flushed on to the board as if the new topic button is their own personal toilet bowl handle.

One man's dumb thought is another man's topic for discussion. Ignore the "dumb" topics if they bother you that much because making a post about said topics really isn't any better

And if any of those veterans or rookies had gone down with an injury, posters would be complaining about too many snaps in the preseason. Think the coaches did about as well as they could have this off season.
