Nakamura accepts responsibility.

Who feels bad for Cam when he cost us games? Oh wait, it doesn't happen. It won't be this guy who takes the heat on Monday. It will be Cam someway somehow.

I love Cam Newton. No doubt.

BUT..if he had held on to the ball and secured that first down, the Falcons would have never had the ball again.

Just saying.....can't blame only one person for a loss in any team sport, EVER. There was 106 men today who were suited up to play at the Georgia Dome, and NONE of them played a completely perfect game.

I am still trying to figure out what they saw in this guy to make him a starter in the first place. It just blows my mind, whatever it is we havent seen it since the season starter.

He communicates well with the front end. Which is hard to believe with how far back he lines up.

I probably shouldn't mention this... But I am... Because its only fair...

Josh Norman got beat on that same play. There's no way in HELL that anybody should have gotten behind either of them in that situation. He'll, if White catches that ball in front of them, I'd still be mad of course... It's the way they Both got beat on the play that really makes it hurt worse, if that's even possible.

Completely nice guy, but he's been a liability in the secondary so far this season. Maybe he needs better coaching, maybe he needs to not think so much and be more decisive. Whatever it is, right now we can't figure it out and keep losing while that's happening.

It was obvious the Falcons saw something deep that they felt they could exploit. They found receivers behind our safeties on several plays late in the game. On one long passing play, Julio Jones stepped out of bounds.

Nakamura seemed to be beaten on several plays, but to bash him is pointless. NFL is a game of adjustments and Nakamura hasn't impressed me this year, though I don't profess to be an NFL guru. Nakamura struggles to make tackles and our secondary has been ripped to shreds on several occasions now.

The team has to do a better job of recognizing these problems. To sit and say that Nakamura gave up 3 touchdowns is unfair. The coaches should've made adjustments or should've subbed him out. It is their responsibility to put players on the field that give us a chance to win.

It must suck being him right now. Right now I would favor bringing Martin back. Neither are great tacklers but Martin is better in coverage. The whole FS position for us is a mess.

Norman isn't a 6 yr NFL S

Hurney has ignored the position for years instead opting for lowly regarded draft picks (Sherrod Martin) or players off another team's trash pile (Marquand Manuel and now Nakamura). It's time to go after a hard hitter who can actually defend the pass and offer decent support against the run. Nakamura just gets run over.

Hurney ignores talent period! He goes after other teams' turds and hopes we can turn them into gold. It just doesn't work that often. Until he is gone or this organization starts to bring in some proven vets to fill in the gaping holes we have, this team will never flourish. You do build through the draft, but he sucks at drafting as well. The Grantland.com article on him last week was a real eye opener on his track record. Just a few good free agents who can play could be the difference in this team getting back to being a contender. Maybe one day we will have 1st team quality starters instead of others teams' practice squad players!

I agree it wasn't just Naka. They were picking on both him and Norman the entire 2nd half.

And I still don't understand what happened with Reggie Smith. Would be a nice plan B right about now.

Feel bad for the guy. Not his fault that McD put him in a position to fail. Seems more and more guys are feeling beat down and the coaching staff does not have the answers for them.
