Falcons Will Win By Two Scores

26 posts in this topic

I've thought the Falcons were going to win since about Tuesday, when I read about their O line being so unsettled.  With the proven plyers on our D line, I felt this was a mismatch in our favor.

Now I have read reports the the Vikes best DT AND their best WR are hurting.   After an offseason that saw the Vikes lose their other very good starting DT and their starting SS.

I'm not seeing a Viking win here at  all.  Topic title says the rest...

EDIT AFTER THE BUTT_WHIPPIN'

It has been suggested that I delete this post and thread by someone I respect very much, here.   I won't.   Because there is nothing wrong with fans believing.  

I -will- say I believe a hekuva lot less, now, than I did at around 12:55 today..... now its more "show me" than believing.

Far as the Falcons goes, I held up my end.  If they fail to hold up thiers….that's on them.

True Falcons fans get it.  The rest don't matter to me.    Thanks!  :D

I have a feeling Ridley will have a big game. Sanu will get us plenty of 3rd down conversions, but Ridley will have a day. Julio will have a lot of attention on him and Zimmer will have his blitz packages attempt to do the rest.

Yeah, no. I'm hoping for a win, but I'm hardly confident. The Vikes under Zimmer seem to always give us trouble, even in years where they're bad, let alone years like this where they've made so many improvements.

Maybe we do win by two scores, but I'm expecting a grind.

Love to see the defense carry this team until the OLine has a chance to gel.

**********post I wrote,  copied from another thread************

Fast read-quick release Matt Ryan will negate the pass rush.

Then the Vikes' D gets wore out when the Falcons run the ball right at them.

Then there is the no huddle....and Koetter's staple play, the screen pass.

Several ways to slow down that Vikes' D, and the Falcons use all of them.

ALSO:  reduced time on field for Vikes' O means our pass rushers get to disregard the run.....

Win by 2 scores.  They're down by 2 scores at this moment and it only looks like it's going to get worse.  The offense is not ready.  This defense is a good test and its imposing its will.  It's starting to look like it's going to be a long season.

As I've said before defense wins championships, not offense.

This right here should have been your clue on why they wouldn't win

Thanks for that g-dawg, I know you are being considerate.  Its cool.  Nothing wrong with fans believing.

Far as the Falcons goes, I held up my end.  If they fail to hold up thiers….that's on them.

True Falcons fans get it.  The rest don't matter to me.    Thanks, man!  :D

Think I might add something to my original post....
