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:

At one point they were 1 for 9 stopping us on 3rd down. That was far from lights out.

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.

At least PhillyB is trying to give the winner credit. I give rep for that.

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.

I'll the defense credit.. the Panthers defense. But I'm glad you gave Atlanta credit. They did play well. For that you get rep.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
