haha i'm so psyched right now. i know its against the lions with them stubbornly running the ball, but there haven't been much to be excited about the falcons in so long and they're playing so well!!

ATLDirtyBirds 09-07-2008 12:35 PM

This is amazing.

thefalconer 09-07-2008 12:35 PM

this game is gonna get ugly. the final score is on pace to be 84-0!
patriots who?! haha

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 12:42 PM

We better watch out, the lions can easily catch up cuz of their pass game.

oldLibid21 09-07-2008 12:43 PM

Granted, it's the Detroit defense. This is still very impressive. I'm very excited for this team. GREAT job in the offseason.

ATLDirtyBirds 09-07-2008 12:43 PM

That's my man Abe. He's going for that sack total I set for him.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 12:44 PM

The detriot o-line sucks, hopefully we'll see a lot more sacks today.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 01:00 PM

let's go defense, dont let them score!!

thefalconer 09-07-2008 01:08 PM

kitna looks like a crazy neo-nazi.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 01:10 PM

looks like a skinhead or something, damn. Well our LBers are invisible, i dont like when the DBs are tackling the RBs, its never a good sign.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 01:24 PM

WTF, we cant get any damn pressure on Kitna.

oldLibid21 09-07-2008 01:32 PM

God... damnit...

ATLDirtyBirds 09-07-2008 01:38 PM

Yeah, I liked it better up 3 scores.

So you like it now, ha? haha our offense is great.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 02:15 PM

God dammit Chris Houston costed us 2 TDs of his stupid unnecessary penalties.

dunagan15 09-07-2008 02:37 PM

Turner is a beast! Norwod is playing great as well, they compliment eachother so well.

This is perect for Ryan as well. Being able to throw enough to stay confident and give us a change of pace. He has looked very efficient.



As far as defense goes, well there needs to be much improvement. The DB's arnt looking too great but ill cut them a "little" slack b/c of the Lions receiving core but other than that, Houston is in good position just making dumb decisions. Grimes, well hey they guy is 5'8 5'9 at most maybe 180 so hes doing all he is capable of.

There is absolutely no pass rush at all and its costing us. Abraham is the lone bright spot and Anderson is looking a little better but we gotta get more pressure. I Like what I'm seeing out of Lofton, running well and making the tackles, Boley is playing consistently, and Brooking looks like an old grandpa out there trying to run rodents off his front porch. I know hes a veteran leader but we need a playmaker.


Overall Im very excited to see our Offense putting the ball into the endzone and putting points on the board. Very promising start to the Mike Smith and Matt Ryan era.

dunagan15 09-07-2008 02:41 PM

Well don't I look like an idiot after Abraham records two sacks on 1 drive...I can say I'm glad to be shown up.

Bosanac01 09-07-2008 02:44 PM

No you didnt look like an idiot at all, the defense looked very poor most of the game.
