Falcons Ready To Prove Naysayers (Including Some Here) Wrong

Interesting excerts from Prisco's Article

1. It is Douglas who is expected to fill the void left by tight end Tony Gonzalez in the middle of the field. With Jones and White back, Douglas will be the slot receiver again. His speed will help get more big plays in the middle of the field than Gonzalez did.

2. Falcons owner Arthur Blank said in April that most people would not consider his team as a tough team that plays right up until the edge, but not past it. That is something he wants to see, but that sure isn't anything the players would really want to hear. That reputation is based mainly on the notion that teams that pass it first, which the Falcons do on offense, aren't tough, while run-first teams are tough.

"So what do you call Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers?" Jones said. "Were they on tough teams? Both of those won Super Bowls. The 49ers haven't won the Super Bowl. You can run it all you want to, but you get in the playoffs you have to be able to throw the ball. And get one or two explosive plays to win it all."

3. "We have a good football team," Ryan said. "We had so many injuries last season that it took a toll. No disrespect to anybody, but there were times when I would look around the huddle and wonder who was playing X or who was playing Z. We will get back this season to being a good football team. This is a good roster."

I'm all for getting tougher. It was obvious at times they looked soft and disconnected especially in the second half. It was as if they went in to the locker room at halftime and took a nap, but then not wake back up until mid 4th quarter. And that's before last season too.

Julio Jones needs to relax .. homie stay healthy .. finese offenses don't win much in Super Bowl

Packers defense was rated number 1 and Saints defense created turnovers and helped Packers. Rodgers and Brees also take there game to another level. Matt Ryan has not

Hey Swift, I'm sure you've answered this before but what would it take for you to fully support Ryan? Is it Super Bowl win only? Ryan had 400 yards and 3TD's in the NFC championship game against a great 49ers D. I personally consider that taking it to another level, I'm curious to know why you don't. Not flaming, generally curious.

That's not where we got our soft reputation from tho. We got ours from actually being soft.
