OFFENSE

That's about it ladies and gentleman. Sorry to report we have no Top 10 defensive stats. Yikes.

Well that's about all I got. At least I tried.

I'd be curious to know the offensive stats since the Tampa game.

I bet they're significantly lower.

Tell me why an extra 2 wins this year does any good at all?

Ten reasons why we shouldn't tank:

1. The team and the coaches have already said they don't want to tank

2. You can build momentum and take it into the next season. See ATL 1997 and CAR 2012

3. Tanking is for losers, quitters and sorry mofos

4. Tanking sends a bad message to the fanbase

5. Nobody wants to have spent good money on tickets, parking and travel to see a team purposely lose

6. There is no guarantee the pick we get at #1 will be better than the pick we get at #5

7. There is no guarantee a team will come knocking at our door with a trade down opportunity

8. Fans that aren't NCAA fantasy draft nuts want to see our team try to win football games

9. Tanking sends a message to potential free agents to avoid ATL like the plague

10. Tanking further dilutes the quality of NFL Football which is already in a downward trend IMO

Mathematically eliminated, right?

I remember going to our last game in the strike shortened 1987 season. We were in an 0-2 stretch, coming in at 3-11. We lost 30-13 to DET to close out at 3-12.

Now that would be a perfect scenario for a tanker because the team tried hard, lost the game and was assured of picking first in the 1988 draft.

What did we do with that #1 pick? We selected Aundray freakin Bruce who was being hyped up like Clowney is being hyped in 2013.

Of course we could have won that game and missed out on the #1 pick, but that may have been a better scenario because we could have taken Neil Smith, Tim Brown, Michael Irvin, Randall McDaniel or Sterling Sharpe, who were all selected after Bruce.

Tank on tankers.

There's a difference between the team tanking on purpose and the fans being fine with not winning another game.

I don't think momentum is going to be that big of a deal because we'll probably blow out 1/2 the roster and coaching staff next season.

Tank on tankers.

Or they could have taken Bruce with the 2nd overall pick.

Don't think we'll able to tell if the team is tanking or just inept over the next few games.

Whats matt boshers chances of making pro bowl?

I think he has a shot at Special teams "specialist", he must lead the league in tackles? he's got to be ranked #1 for a P in that department....thanks FFSince 1970, I'm in your bracket for following, don't mean to put you down but I'd love to see our Speacial Teams Stats for KO & P returns...plus the avg we give up on those too, that can't be pretty.

Fans that are fine with losing out are questionable fans. Especially when the reason is to improve draft position.

I'd rather see this scenario:

-Win out. Or dam near die trying

-Knock one or two NFC teams down the playoff ladder. GB, CAR and SF could be prime targets. And yall wanna lose to them? Fk that

-Build some momentum to carry into 2014. Momentum carryover is a proven concept and is entirely achievable

-Send a message to our real fans that we are starting our return now. That the Atlanta Football Falcons are not losers, quitters or tankers

-Try to win for the fans that have paid to come games. At least the ones that still want to see the team win

-Still get a decent pick in the draft. There will be impact players where we pick even if we win out. Stop chasing draft position points

I would rather hear our fans say - I want to win every game. Beat the sht out of every team we face. Start to gel with the young guys that will definitely be here next year. Create a more positive atmosphere going into 2014 and have all the losing teams vying for last place win as well. That will make for a better December and still assure us of getting a high value pick. Fk losing. Losing is for losers, quitters and tankers.

At the very least, let's make sure Cam never gets a homecoming party in the Dome.
