1. we all know our defense has been overachieving all season due to Nolan

2. Nolan has been squeezing every bit of production he can out of our defensive unit

3. we expected more out of the defense because we over rate our talent and players on the defense

4. the defense ave up 14 points in the first half; they gave up 14 points in the second half

5. the offense put up 24 points in the first half; they put up 0 points in the second half

6. We shouldnt be surprised by the defense; at least they gave up no more than the first half. The offense we have is top five in the league, maybe even top 3. We should expect at least a TD in the second half.

All we needed were 5 more points to win the game. . . . . the offense couldn't even get in FG position to score 3. . . .

OFFENSE

The defense only stopped the niners once in the second half and gave the offense the ball on Atlanta's own one yard line. Probably would have been better off to have the niners score rather than be pinned on the one with Turner out of the game so that an already anemic rushing offense is just inept. Akers missed the one field goal. A gift more than a stop.

But lets face it, Matt Ryan and Co. barley had the ball in the second half, our defense was just plain awful. Part of that is our inablilty to establish a run game (not for a lack of trying) but more of that falls on that D which which had to fight tooth and nail just to get to third down, they're just awful.

I'm not happy at all with "D Block" right now.

Thank you. I was going to make this thread. We're supposed to have this explosive offense, yet we couldnt muster up a single point in the 2nd half. Hats off to all the fans at the game. After every disappointing drive/ turnover we would stand up scream at the top of our lungs. And even when the D got a stop the O did nothing. Man we should have won this game easily.

The defense had the same problem against the niners as it had against the seahawks. But the chances to win were still there.

It came down to who made the fewest mistakes. The fumble by Ryan was huge but so was the poor throw to a wide open Douglas.

It reminded me of the throw to Drew Davis all alone in the end zone and Davis had to make a great catch and get his feet down.

Both are mental errors by the QB but it doesn't mean he cannot become a better QB.

This OP shows up at a predictable time.

No ****....kennycaine will be on here later today....bet the house.

These crowing mutha******s who come on here after a devastating loss should all get hit by runaway 18-wheelers.

They come out of the woodwork. Can't wait for us to win a Super Bowl, then we'd have nearly 2 years without these jack balls making stupid threads.

I think obviously it was a complete team loss. The defense played like garbage after the first two series, but it's also true that a team is rarely going to win a conference championship game going scoreless in the second half.

The Falcons have to get defensive help on all 3 levels and come back and try and do better next time.

Offense is what kept us in the game. Defense got man handled two weeks in a row now.

can t totally blame the d when the o disappeared in the 2nd halves of both games, what 7 points in 4 qtrs?. fact is our o and d played great in both first halves, and both disappeared in the 2nd halves. that to me is more about coaching.

We only got one quarter of great play from the D this week. Six plays to be exact.
