Falcons win but struggle
 
The Falcons did manage to stop their seven-game exhibition season losing streak and helped coach Mike Smith improve his record to 4-1 in the important third exhibition-season games.

They had the longest active losing streak of preseason games in the NFL.

They struggled but you know.......

That was just Miami.

What they got in the NFC is going to be tougher than that.

We went in to that game with a vanilla gameplan. MS even said so before the game. We didn't even go no huddle.

excuses... The 3rd preseason game is the dress rehearsal for the regular season, where the starters usually play most of the 3rd and treat it like a regular season game.

The Falcons were no exception, the starters played the first half and some of the third. And scored what 9 points in the first half, against the dolphins... lol

Typically, the third game is a confidence builder game. Think the falcons 1st stringers were confident coming out of that game?

And why do you think they went vanilla, isn't the whole point of changing the offense to become more dynamic? Why would they go vanilla in their last real chance to practice against another team?

Who is MS?

I dont believe for a minute the Falcons went Vanilla.

I honestly dont believe they have went Vanilla all preseason and that is probably why they only got 9 pts when the 1st string was in there.

On the team's first offensive drive, the Falcons elected to go for a fourth-and-2 from Miami's 33, but running back Jacquizz Rodgers was dropped for a 2-yard loss.
Welcome to the real world, Falcons fans. Sounds like you are living through the Giants and Saints nightmare games all over again to me. Watching your fans turn on your coach this year and eat him alive for this kind of nonsense is going to be even more fun than Shark Week.
