@ Eagles
Cowboys

Atl Flacons at N.O Saints or

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Thu, Nov. 29th, 2012 08:20 PM Georgia Dome (Atlanta, GA)

Can I say that? :-)
Seriously, it might be that way. The Ealges, Raiders, Cowboys might all be easy for Atl. right now.

Can I say that too ?:mad:

To be honest, any of those teams have a chance at beating them, but if I had to choose, I'd say the Eagles or Lions.

Hopefully, all of the above.

The thing to factor in is that every year the Falcons are always a very undisciplined team -- they lapse into overconfidence and fall prey to "trap games" looking past opponents, and they depend on lucky bounces to get those W's. And when they don't get the lucky bounces, they can fall apart in a game pretty quickly.

The Eagles could give them a closer game than people expect (has happened in the past) and I could see the Cardinals being a game the Falcons "drop" in that unprepared, sloppy way of theirs -- one of those losses where their wheels completely fall off, and they look terrible out there. I absolutely think the Saints can beat the Falcons, when Vitt is back. I have this feeling that Vitt is gonna be out to pick them apart, to make a statement.

The key to beating the Falcons is always just to survive the initial onslaught -- they come out jawing and jumping around and smack talking and flashing their gang signs and stuff, then if you withstand that first onslaught, you can hang in there and shut them up and beat them...Washington came very close to winning, and it's all because they survived that initial surge, of jabbering and chest-bumping where the Falcons are all jumping around and acting thuggish. Then the undiscipline starts to show up.

I don't usually care about rival fan smack talk and the like, but this is so out there I can't help but point it out.

Calling the Falcons undisciplined and saying they fall into "trap games."

Starting from 2008, I simply haven't seen it.

Just going on regular season -- not even talking about Falcons playoffs, because that is such epic FAIL it can't even be measured or discussed in a thread like this


Pittsburgh Steelers, 2010, your team was sloppy and unprepared against a backup quarterback

Chicago Bears 2011, your team freaking fell apart on the field, was that a disciplined team?

Overconfident against the Eagles in 2009, AT HOME, maybe looking ahead to the Saints next week???? Actually both your games prior to the Saints in 2009, both LOSSES that caught the Falcons napping against opponents they should have easily handled. Definitely not a whiff of "trap game" there, no sir.

2008, crapped out and laid an egg against the Broncos AT HOME (again), sandwiched between the Saints and the Panthers. Picture perfect textbook definition of trap game. Want me to keep going?

You "haven't seen it" -- oh wait, that's right -- Dunta Robinson never spears anybody, you also haven't seen that, LOL. Too funny.
