#1934158 Rivera said Gamble likely out

Posted by rayzor on 04 October 2012 - 02:39 PM

brees is a very rare example playing behind one of the best pass blocking lines in the entire league. he also isn't nearly as great when teams can collapse the pocket and get arms up.

brees is short and elite. therefore we should worry about all short QBs.

russell wilson QB

honestly not worried.

if there was a week for gamble to be out this season, this would be the one i would choose.

i swear most of you act like we are facing the falcons, giants, and saints all over again.

it's frikkin russel wilson, sidney rice, and golden tate. oooohhhh...scary. lol

if we were facing a top notch passing team i'd be more worried...but we aren't.

#1931218 how long did the falcons have 6 OL on the field?

i just like that our pass rush demanded that kind of respect.

#1931181 Greg Olsen's Personal Pain

Posted by rayzor on 02 October 2012 - 10:20 AM

oh crap. i hate being a softy sometimes. literally got me tearing up.

as a parent, you remember all these fears when the baby is in the womb worrying (even though you probably shouldn't) "what if there's something wrong with the baby?" unfortunately it happens and i hate it for them to be going through this. it looks like they have a healthy grasp on it all. they have been definitely in prayers of mine. i don't know them, but that doesn't matter to me. whether it's someone i know or not, i hate seeing people go through things like this (and please don't turn that into somekind of religious debate...this isn't the place for it, imo.)

i had seen and read other reports about it but what really got me was then they started talking about richardson getting involved. there's no way i am ever going to say anything disrespectful about that guy. he's got a big heart for his players. bitch about him all you want about his role in the CBA or ref talks, but there's no denying that when it truly matters he does what he can for his own.

We will cut a player that no one remembers is on the team.

how about that one guy...you know...that one that...ummm...when we picked him up and a bunch of funny guys wrote "championship" or something like that. it's probably him. i think his name had a couple vowels in it. you know...him.

#1930297 Were there any injuries RR reported?

whole lot of butt hurt posters in here who've done nothing but cry all day and act like the season's over.

#1929989 I was happy with yesterdays results..

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 02:30 PM

...probably because I didnt watch the game. I was out of town and checked the score at 21-24 and then saw the final. Was upset for a bit but was happy we had the Falcons on the ropes.

Of corse we found a way to piss the game away, but as Panther fans- we should be used to that by now. This game just proves to me that the Giants game was NOT the true colors of our team. Once we get our defense back to 'Average'- Cam will take our town back to the promised land!!

i understand what you are saying and agree with a lot of it...but i'm not at all happy with the results.

i'm happy that we got better, but a loss still sucks.

#1929980 Game Sunday Reminded Me Of

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 02:28 PM

Yes, SAFETY has long been a need.

The lines are always where the game starts and stops, but think about all of the year-in and year-out elite defenses and their safety play - Polamalu, Reed, etc.

We've ignored it long enough. I think CB is solid, but we need to start looking for another starter in another 2-3 years as Gamble's career will be winding down. Outside of that depth at CB is a must. But safety needs a legitimate starter and depth.

and no more of this drafting a CB to play safety crap.

draft a safety to play safety. draft a CB to play CB. should be easy enough. no reason to try and out-think everyone.

#1929946 Falcons phantom 4th Timeout

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 02:19 PM

refs screwed up. ATL got what they wanted, a chance to fix their mistake. they shouldn't have.

i don't know if it cost us the game, but it sure didn't do us any favors.

i just think it's awesome that when refs screw up like this that there is no accountability.

#1929904 most thought that we were going to get killed yesterday...

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 02:07 PM

it's not like the falcons played poorly either... they were damn good.

as far as i'm concerned it was two damn good football teams playing competitive football and the better of them came out on top (albeit barely.)

i'm no fan of "there's always next week" and i'm as frustrated as the next guy, but i still can't help but think we've got a very good chance of pummeling seattle and dallas and having a .500 record, back in the thick of the race.

100% agreed with all of that.

people pooing about those of us shooting for .500, you've got to get to .500 before you can get >.500, right?

it's not about settling there. nobody wants that.

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 09:45 AM

Anyone want to make a ban bet that we will go over .500? Rayzor? Anyone?

so is this where we pull out our penises to see who's bigger?

grow up.

#1929298 most thought that we were going to get killed yesterday...

Posted by rayzor on 01 October 2012 - 09:18 AM

and they should have. the falcons have been firing on all cylinders and this is after 4 years of building, what i hate to admit, a very good team. they were 3-0 heading into the game...playing at the georgia dome which is always a very tough place to play...esp. since smith and ryan have been there and it's not just the panthers they have owned coming into their house...it's just about everyone. they were 27-6 at home and if you've ever been to a game there since smith/ryan you'll know why...that place is loud and that team is for real.

meanwhile we have been struggling for a few years. i don't care about blame right now...just pointing out that we were behind the 8 ball heading into this game.

falcons are playing better than they have in many years...probably ever. we are young, building, and struggling.

we were playing the one of the most prolific offenses in the league (points-wise) and one of the most opportunistic defenses in the league.

you know what happened? we lost. it hurt. step beyond that for a moment and look at what happened in that game.

we took it right down to the wire against that team at their house. they didn't "own" us in any facet. we stayed right with them and even led them quite a bit of the game. again the loss hurt badly because we thought we actually had a chance...but the team played damned respectable football against one of the top 2-3 teams in the league right now. we took it right down to the wire in a great football game and just barely lost in the last seconds of the game in their house.

we were playing better football than we have all year and probably better than we have in the last couple years. the defense still has a lot of holes but they played with a fire and intensity that i haven't seen in a long time. they sacked ryan how many times? and how many times had he been sacked prior to that? we found our pass rush. we found intensity on both sides of the ball that has been lacking for a while. believe it or not, it was better coached as well.

we improved, but it just wasn't enough. the season isn't over, though.

in fact we just played the most difficult team on the schedule. in fact the last two games have been against the most difficult on the schedule, imo. the eagles are the only ones that come close to rivaling those last two.

if we had played that game yesterday at home, i have very little doubt that we would have won it and i think the next time we play them, we beat them.

the schedule gets easier from here out, imo. a lot of you have given up, but you shouldn't....unless you have david carr-type fragile psyches or are just afraid to have faith in the team.

i believe they found a lot of what they were looking for yesterday. i don't believe that this loss is a "loss we don't come back from" or any of that garbage. i think that this loss was similar to the lions loss from last year in that it came after a very humiliating loss but it showed a definite improvement in many facets and started a positive streak for the team.

i think the hardest days are behind us now this season. i believe we have turned the corner. i hate that it took so long, but it did. it's water under the bridge now. playoffs this year? i dunno...maybe, maybe not. i think we can still pull off a winning record. i think this team is still on the verge of being one of the best in the league.

this isn't some "moral victory" thoughts...there are none. it was a loss, but it wasn't the end of the world. it wasn't the end of the season. it wasn't even an embarrassing loss like the giants game. it was just respectable football that we were an offensive PI call, a fumble, and/or a defensive PI call away from a win in a great football game.

give up on the season if you want. bitch if you want. call me a blind homer or an ass. i don't care. i still believe that this team is close to doing great things and i'm not writing them off.
