Meh ... I mean after last week I had our chances at about 10% mostly on the off chance a few better teams just self destructed. With our OL in the shape it's in JJ and Matt would have had to go into an epic run of historical fashion, but the chance was there.

4 decades of watching the Falcons, Hawks, and Braves have just taught me not too get to up or too down about these teams. I enjoy what I can from them and call it a day. Your mileage may vary of course.

 

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving at least.

This is exactly what I have been saying for awhile now. Take the wins when they happen and enjoy the game because this team is up and down been that way it's been since the beginning! I know I have been there since the beginning. And again I'm sorry to say this but preseason matters if you want a winning attitude. Injuries happen but first they happen in regular season did they not, second that's playing scared, third it is does not give a mindset of toughness, fourth it does not instill confidence in your players and backup minds, and fifth it's a excuse to hope that your team can be elite in the regular season but not really knowing for sure. Practice only tells you so much real game experience tells so much more. Waste a couple of preseason games and you loose mental toughness, emotion, physical toughness, and confidence in your regulars and backups. Then when you do get and injury you get what you see in the Falcons lousy play. Sorry just my opinion. Know I will get beat up about it, but just call them as I see them. Falcons will always be the Falcons, some seasons will be better than others, I just don't know that a SB win will ever happen for us but I keep hoping. But after 50 plus years my hope is getting thin!

OF COURSE the Falcons can still make the 2018 playoffs. All it would take is for about 4 or 5 team plane crashes for a few other teams in the remainder of the season.

I've said it after the Steelers game and definitely the Browns that we're going 7-9 this year, but now even 6-10 is looking more like a possibility too. The Cardinals is the only 100% guaranteed win left on our schedule. If we lose the rest of our road games and continue our AFC horrors against the Ravens, then that's 5-11 right there.

LMAO..... Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back troll. Everybody with half a brain knew this wasn't our year when the injury bug hit. I didn't question the fact we have big problems, I questioned your proclamation of being a fan.

Probably been a fan longer than youve been alive. I've earned the right to call this team out.

Perhaps we would better off to lose to the Cardinals and finish 4-12 and only maybe have the Raiders ahead of us in the race to the best draft pick?

I really doubt that. Been a fan since the 70's. You dont call out, you are constantly derogatory about everything, this is why you are considered a troll.

Cardinals haven't won in Atlanta since 1993. We've absolutely owned them at home, and they are much worse this year without Bruce Arians.

The Browns blew us out the week after firing their entire coaching staff. The Cards could beat us anything bad is possible with the team this year.

Browns own the Falcons in the series though and we have been horrible against AFC teams (let alone the AFC North). I tried to warn everybody about this prior to the game. We're 3-12 all time against the Browns. We were supposed to beat the Browns in 2006 and 2014 too and that didn't work out either. The Browns were our only AFC North loss in 2002. One of our only wins over the Browns was the 2010 game in Cleveland and our 13-3 Falcons had a bad start but their starting QB had to go out for us to win that game.

Sorry if being right bothers you. Ive been on this board a LONG time and I will certainly root for this team when they show heart and show they are worth it.

I will point to the 2009 team as a prime example. We had some major injuries and fought for a 9-7 season to break the back to back winning season curse. That team had heart and was worth rooting for even though we missed the playoffs.

That was not the case this year.

Some of you though are living in some alternate universe and need a wake up call. After all the insults I get just for calling it like I see it you can bite me.

I was completely correct on my judgment of this team going all the way back to pre season. Sorry some of you homers can't handle the truth and deicded to lash out and insult me all year.

Guess what, you ARE right, team isn’t good. I said it. The difference is I won’t get flamed, you will. Cause you’re annoying. That’s why you get insulted. Not because you’re right. But because you’re annoying
