Not bad a few chuckles in there... especially Ryan in a bra, that was rather disturbing yet funny

Because they started the preseason game in a 4-man base with no pass rush.

Because Lamar Holmes still has no idea what to do with a stunt.

Because the offensive line still looks weak (better, but weak) and the d line still looks stuck in mud.

Because the starting offense didn't convert (attempt?) one single down-field pass.

Because Mike Smith kicked a 21-yard field goal in preseason.

Because Ryan got hit twice on the first drive in preseason, once when the tackles both had no clue that they were responsible for the outside blitzer.

Because the artist Stephen (doesn't get the v back until he's worthy of it) Jackson is going to get Smith's touches.

Bec . . . of wait, there's a link?

Glad CW69 eventually figured out how to fix Archer's mic, though; it was unbearable up until the start of the second.

hello. THIS

it's preseason, 1st game, only scrubs: he drains the clock and let's Castillo try a FG?

you guys know I am the most injury wussified guy but even I thought that was weak.

1st half?...21 yards?

really

talk me off the ledge, but that just seems bad. THIS is where you 'try out the sh*t' your never gonna do, even if it is with the guys who may never see the field.

'were tough! but smart!" :whistle:
"what if there were no hypothetical situations?"

I thought the right side of the OL looked promising. Holmes got abused a couple of times, but he wasn't the only one of the back ups.

The DL could develop into something. I don't remember seeing a lot of 3-4, but this is preseason.

The LBs could be an extreme weakness. Is there a possibility of trying a 5-1-5? :lol:

Although Jake had some penalties, I thought both him and Rash played decent for their first game.

What has always sucked: As always, I will start here by disclosing that I am a Vikings fan, so f*** Atlanta eternally for the 1998 NFC title game.

No, really. f*** YOU. With a nail gun. God, we'll never be that good again. It still hurts. It hurts my essence. The Falcons ruin everything for everyone. They are the neighbor you feel obligated to invite to the party and you hope they don't show up to the party but then they DO show up to the party and you're like why the f*** did you come to my party? That's the Falcons every year.


If we've ruined your life for about 16 years then we've achieved our goal!!

If after 16 years you have not noticed that their are bigger things than football, then your life is already gone, I hope you figure it out!!

Greater Atlanta is a train wreck. Every street is named Peachtree. Traffic is asphyxiating. Half an inch of snow causes the sort of panicky gridlock you'd find after a nuclear attack. (Memo to every city from D.C. south: Don't try to excuse being snow wimps by saying, "You guys up North get snow and we get ICE!" Go to Buffalo in January sometime, redneck. You'll see PLENTY of ice, along with people who know how to properly drive a f**** motor vehicle.)

This made me LOL
