So how did the Falcons look?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I thought they didn't look too bad for the last game of the preseason -at least according to the komissar's 18 game regular season calendar. The defense kept up decent pressure on on Cincy (who call themselves "Who Dey") and ...

Re: So how did the Falcons look?

I thought they didn't look too bad for the last game of the preseason -at least according to the komissar's 18 game regular season calendar. The defense kept up decent pressure on on Cincy (who call themselves "Who Dey") and while they gave up a couple of plays, none of them were back breakers. On offense, the run game looked weak, but Matty kept his pants clean and was able to complete quite a few passes. I hope they're decent opponents this year because that'll make us stronger come the playoffs. I only watched the first quarter or so as I could care less who gets spots or gets cut over there.

Did you miss Daltons 54 yard TD pass to AJ Green? AJ made Asante wish he wasn't on the field...

Re: So how did the Falcons look?

I watched some of the game I was not impressed by them at all. I think the Falcowns will always be a team we talk about because were rivials but I'm more concerns with Tampa then any other team in our division.

When you lay a ginormous GOOSE EGG in the playoffs, then you pretty much have to stay in the whole half in preseason, you need the reps whether it's with the 1's or the 2's, LOL. They won't ever say or admit it publically, but there is an "Is Matt Ryan really the long term answer?" discussion going on behind closed doors over there. With 2 years left in his contract, it's got potential to turn into one of those Aaron Brooks type things where, Mike Smith sticks by Ryan, fans go south on Ryan, time for a change, everyone can see it but the coach....or maybe Blankie just decides to blow the whole team up and start over before Ryan's contract is up. Look for the adjective "embattled head coach" to show up next to Mike Smith's name in articles pretty soon this year. If Smith goes for it on 4th and 1 and screws up again, ONE more time, against any team, the fans will turn on him in a heartbeat.

Their first team O was shut down in the red zone by the Bengals. And barly made it past the 50 in the first two possessions.

Dalton has an arm on him but he is inaccurate as hell.


Neither impressed nor worried.
I am of the opinion they are going all out this preseason with the playbook.

That mighty mouse running back looks like major trouble...he's PT and Ivory in one. Julio looks like he's going to make people look silly all year. D looked ok, but not impressive.

You had better hope not if the Bengals can shut them down like that.

Re: So how did the Falcons look?

I didn't get to watch much of the game, turned it on late 4th quater. 2 things stuck out to me. (1) looked like only 20 fans showed up for the game (2) the announcers said something like the Panthers had the most explosive offense last year. Crazy talk.
