Admit it, as soon as Rivera shut it down with 1 min left in 1st half...

...You KNEW that we were going to blow that lead in the second half didn't you?

As soon as we let off the gas yet again when we got up by two scores, I turned to my girlfriend and told her we were going to lose. I've seen this show too many times before.

But as soon as that happened, how many knew the Falcons were DEFINITELY going to come back on us?



Exactly....You could feel the air go out of the stadium with that dumb John Fox type move near half time,when we set on the lead and the Falcons almost scored because of it.
I watched the replay and you could tell that it really upset Cam for us to go into that slowdown mode. A momentum swing that carried over to the second half and as well as the rest of the game. Mark this down to bad coaching.

Ron Rivera sucks. admit it. his approach sucks, his attitude sucks.
the day he wins us a superbowl, ill admit i was an a-hole but now, rr chico aint ready to be a head coach. i want a coach like the Harbaughs, gruden, cowher, who shows energy to the fanbase and attitude toward his players. it's like RR is afraid of hurting Cams feeling. Cam is a rookie and should be treated like a rookie. why is the organization treating him like hes brady or manning.

Yep. I knew we were done. You have a 1:30 left in the half and Atlanta was against the ropes yet you decide to play not to lose. You could tell Cam was so frustrated with the play calls coming in. Rivera took the swag out of the team. He has as much learning to do as anyone.

Have to admit, I thought this 100%. Made a post in the game thread saying we should all calm down because we hadn't won yet around that time.

I think it's ridiculous that we can look so good for 2 quarters then look terrible the final 2. It's getting hard to watch the game, because it's such a downer on the day.

That series might have been handled differently were it not for the holding call on Jordan Pugh during the punt return. That call backed us up and probably changed the plays Chud had intended to use. Start that drive at the 30 or 35 and it is less risky to try to drive the ball down the field.
