Last year Atlanta went 1-3 in the preseason and only managed more than 20 points in one game.

Somehow, someway, they still managed to go 13-3 in the regular season and only scored less than 20 points twice.

What an amazing turnaround /sarcasm


Hell, the Falcons are 0-2 in the preseason now, I wonder who they'll draft with the No.1 pick in the preseason draft?

It's amazing that some people still think preseason showcases actual football games.

No zod. I don't. But establishing a winning culture is important

You play to win the game. No matter what.

We might not win this week but we damn sure better show were capable.

If not, don't worry you will benefit form 100 post as to why we will lose it all.

It really is, makes you wonder how many young people are posting here, almost as if they've never seen the difference between preseason vs regular preseason. Veterans do not take the preseason seriously, unless, of course, you're Steve Smith.

a) it's the preseason. It really doesn't matter. while I appreciate that you are trying to inspire us into rallying behind our team, it is the preseason and it doesn't matter. We aren't playing to win these games, we are playing to evaluate talent, see what works and what doesn't, and get out healthy.

 

 

B) We are not blowing this team up if we suck again this year. Like it or not, there is a ton of talent on this team, and if we aren't winning, it's because they aren't being utilized correctly. if the falcons can almost reach the super bowl with blaring weaknesses on defense, then their coach is doing a good job of marginalizing those weaknesses. If we suck, Rivera is gone. simple as that. we bring in someone who we think can win with our talent. nothing more nothing less.

 

c) it's the preseason, it doesn't matter.

The pre-season is soooo important that coaches don't even use more than two pages of their playbook.

Everyone keeps using the excuse "this is preseason", well - this is preseason for every team in the NFL. No, winning in preseason is not a must have, however playing well is. Granted, the second preseason game is more about evaluating talent, but you can evaluate the same talent while you win. We looked like crap agianst Philly. Cam didn't look good at all, eventhough he had no protection most of the plays. The plays that he did have time, he was inaccurate with his throws. Preseason games are not must wins, they are what they are...glorified practices that we like to win and show consistant improvement. I don't like seeing my starting QB overthrow open WR's. You play like you practice!

I don't recall Cam ever being spectacular in the preseason, he has always been a gamer. Kuechly hasn't looked good in the preseason either, there is no review of film of the other team, no game-planning, no scouting. Relax.

The Jets won a preseason game 37-13 and they still couldn't win the SEC this year.

You don't see a issue with Cam ever being spectacular in preseason. He's the starting QB, if he can't hit open WR in a preseason game, there is a problem. Kuechly has looked good to me and has been all over the field as usual. And if you think that no one is reviewing film of the other team and not game planning at all, then you are dead wrong. No coach plays to lose anything especially something what he coaches. You play to win the game, every game. No, preseason is not treated like a regular game, but starting o-linemen should not be getting beat routinely. Starting QB's should not be overthowing open WR and struggling to complete 60 % of his plasses. Our defense should not be making opposing QB's look like they're not in preseason. This is everyones preseason.
