Let's give credit where it's due.

Falcons defense played lights out. From the tipped ball at the end of the half that went for an INT to the defensive lineman's interception at the end of the 4th that effectively iced the game, the plays made by their guys against an otherwise well-performing offense were outstanding. both of those plays were individual effort that changed the game.

chalk this one up to experience. we're not a playoff team this year, never were. next time bitches. :cheers2:

Between our Defense sucking ass and finding a way to lose, we lost another game....we beat the Falcons for 3 quarters...this isn't new...it happens every week.

Both teams were sustaining long drives, there were hardly any punts. Then, Atlanta's defense made adjustments and dialed up the pressure and it worked. Our defense, meanwhile, continued to take what it was being dealt by the Falcons.

Not sure if it's on McDermott or the guys we have on the field, or both, but it's got to change.

We lost on the 3rd and 12 play. Ryan got hit, still managed to complete the pass to Douglas, who had a big gain. Defense can't stop anyone besides Jacksonville during a rainstorm. No I take that back, not even then.

Atlanta's defense sucks ass. That DT will come closer to smelling another man's balls than he will to smelling another interception in his career. Byron Bell was terrible, the playcalling was terrible after we went up 17-14 and Atlanta got a luck INT on a tip at the end of the first half. That would have been a Smith TD as he was wide open in the back of the end zone.

my point exactly, they made plays when they needed to the most. we didn't. end of story.

ATL's defense played far from lights out, but they were opportunistic when it counted and for that they get respect. They don't have much talent on their defense (Abraham was once elite, but is declining and Lofton is a good MLB but that's about it) so their softness is understandable. They played good enough to win against our top 5 offense, so that's all that matters.
