Oh God!! How the **** did I know this was coming? They scored 33 points!! 33 points should win the game!

Defense cannot "get off" the field.

That was just under our average in '16. Difference is the D. You should win if you score 33.

You can't blame him for this loss. But stats mean nothing. But let's be realistic. He's thrown for over 300 yards in the other games but it's all garbage time. And you could say those stats are because we basically played form behind the whole game. 

They weren't in prevent D vs us. We beat them straight up.

It's only "garbage" stats when Bryant misses the XP.

You can't take away from Ryan helping us tie the game in the 4th and should've tied in twice.

Defense doesn't show up at all until 1.5 Qs remaining. That's not your QBs fault.

I’m waiting for all the media outlets with the headlines stating “What’s wrong with Matt Ryan?”

They will blame him for the 2 sacks he took

Young is NO Vic Beasley.  Trust me on that.  I called Beasley being a bust before the combine.

So did I.....

Could've been worse. Bryant could've made the extra point for the tie, only to have the defense get dink and dunked over the middle for a quick easy touchdown drive in typical Falcons fashion.

Ikr,there was no way they would have kept them from scoring

To repeat the first sentence from my post that you commented on: "You can't blame him for this loss." I'm just saying you don't say that because of his stats, because stats can be deceiving. The point is he brought us back, he wasn't the problem, but don't base it on the stats, because stats can lie. Base it on what you saw him do.

This is the first time I have seen a defense that does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING well.

I am not being hyperbolic, there is nothing they excel at on defense.

Yes there is,they are excellent at giving up third and longs

Bone-head jump-nall INTs, and a notorious slow-starter in games...

He heats up as Matty-Ice because he is often cold early in games.

Still,

Mora, Smith, Quinn...only 1 top-5 defense in 15 seasons. All former defensive co-ordinators. Of great defenses for other NFL franchises..SMH..whew.

Matt 30/36 356yds, 4TD, and people gonna blame him for this game

The usual line from his critics on the forum is that he is just garbage stat machine...  meanwhile saints get the W today with a grand total of 13 points

Slow starts suck, but 30+ in back to back games and we still lose. That’s not supposed to happen in this league, and we might be the only team that’s done that two years in a row.

You forgot to add how they’ll praise Teddy B for being a decent game manager.

Go ahead and be stupid and let Ridley & Hooper ball out for another team. I didn’t care for Freeman deal, there’s no comparison. 

Dude Hooper is avg as heck..And Ridley has suspect hands. Stop acting like theyre all that..

They (may) go into the NFL's record books as one of the worst of all time.

I won't lie, fellow Falcons fans. This one really hurt, and I'm having a hard time getting over it.

The team showed a lot on the road down two touchdowns in the second half.
