Calling it! Our defense is terrible an it will take even more time to gell the offensive line back together, and that's gonna be especially hard because we have way too many road games upcoming like Detroit,Ravens,Giants,etc. It's gonna be another rough year, but maybe by years end we will end up with a top 10 pick! Vic Beasley here we come!

Way too early for giving up on the season. Falcon's D is radically different than last years- 8 new starters to start 2014 as opposed to the start of 2013, they can still develop into a decent unit.

And, the Oline may be good enough. Konz looked good while he was in,Falcons actually gained the lead with him at center, then lost it when the 3rd Olineman went down.

Plus, look at the other teams in the division-none of them should really scare you. Saints are in the same boat we are and a game behind us, Carolina's D has slipped and their Oline is worse than the Falcons, Bucs are 1-3 for a reason.

If the Falcons can get to the bye at 4-4, which only requires the offense to outscore 2 teams, then the second half has a lot of home games.

Falcons are 2-6 at the bye, yeah, season's gone, but that hasn't happened yet.

In effect, so far we have lost Hawley off the O line. Yes, I know Holmes got hurt but heck, he was already splitting time with Carimi anyway. I think Blalock will be back sooner rather than later. Our offense is going to be fine barring any other significant injuries. The question is the defense and whether or not it can rise up from being atrocious to being only halfway horrible. With just a moderately successful defense our offense can win us a lot of games.

Anybody predicting less than 7 wins for this team at this point is a b!tch

The offense has scored on the road a average of 19 ppg.... Our defense hasn't held anyone except Tampa under 19 points... So realistically we will struggle on the road probably losing them all except 1 or if lucky 2. An then maybe 1 or 2 easy W's at home other than that it's gonna be rough getting over .500 with this team.

The offense has scored at home an average of 47 ppg.... Our defense hasn't allowed anyone except Minnesota over 41 points... So realistically we will excel at home probably winning them all except 1 or if unlucky 2. And then maybe 1 or 2 tough L's on the road other than that it's gonna be pretty smooth getting over .500 with this team.
