True. By then someone will have laid out a blue print on how to beat them.

Is the fact that maybe the Falcons offense in preseason is looking a little TOO good.

You look at the rest of the NFL elite/almost elite teams this preseason, none of them look great, quite frankly they rarely do until regular season.

I tend to believe what goes on in preseason is almost a 180 to what goes on in regular season.
The Jets will be a juggernaut if what you're saying is true.

IMO, the Falcons did nothing to get better. I doubt Dent will be an improvement over Lofton. Asante Samuel can't cover everybody. And people say the knock on the Saints D is they are learning a new system, yet nobody says that about ATL learning a new system on offense. Their passing may be better.

I see them as stagnant. I think the rest of the division got better. The only hurdle the Saints have is no Payton, but they have the guys in place to maintain enough continuity to be highly competitive. I'm more worried about Carolina taking the division than ATL.

Its still Atlanta because I put this in another post about the schedule making.

Falcons the last 2-3 years and for the next 2 years get all tough opponents inside their dome.

This year is no exception, Saints is the only tough team they going on the road for.

This is why they been as high competitive the last 2-3 years as they have been outside the fact they never get injured hardly.

Scheme changes made a big difference for us so far. The Panthers haven't even won a game against us under Cam Newton.

Join the club. It's not that difficult to do. Is this one of those things like back-to-back winning seasons, that only a Falcons fan thinks is a really big deal.

They got low standards.

a Division champ in 2010 was like a SB to them.

as for the Panthers, I dont think they have beaten us since 2009 season unless I am mistaken and we dropped 1 to them late in the 2010 season.

nahh, they will be better on offense than what they have showed.

They never good to begin with in regular season, so you can imagine what they will look like in the preseason in vanilla mode.

Falcons to crank up air show starring Julio Jones, Roddy White and a stronger Matt Ryan - Yahoo! Sports

Yahoo loving the Falcons. I'll repeat what has been asked, what is different this year? OC? who says it's an improvement? Turner and Gonzales are a year older, and they didn't add anyone.
I guess I don't see how X + 0 is > X

Yahoo has sucked the Falcons cock big this year.

Everytime I turn around its Matt Ryan this, Matt Ryan that. Draft him at the top of your fantasy team, all that bull.

We wont know anything about the Falcons until the regular season begins, their 3rd preseason game which is the most meaningful game, is against the lousy Dolphins.
