im stoked about the Falcons going down but

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Tony Gonzales is the only person I have respect for on the Falcons. I don't see thier offense being as good without him....

The Falcons have shown for the second week in a row that they cannot hold onto a substantial lead when facing a worthy opponent. The Saints are worthy opponents.

I'm not concerned.

There is NO question in my mind from watching him closely over the years that Michael Turner has lost a step and no longer has the fire. Gonzalez is gone. They will play a tougher schedule. They will regress. Not worried.

Re: im stoked about the Falcons going down but

Mike Nolan may get other offers
Gonzo is retiring
Turner is declining, faster and faster
They blew a wad of picks for Julio
They have a bunch of key free agents to re-sign

They may have peaked. They'll still be a good team, but I think they've missed their window of elite.

I think that Gonzalez will be back next year. In a post game interview he said more than once that he will "probably" never wear a football uniform again.
He seems to be waffling.

Tony Gonzalez will be back, Sean Weatherspoon thinks








Tony Gonzalez says he's 95 percent certain this season was his last, but the Atlanta Falcons would welcome him back.


"I'm hoping for the five percent," coach Mike Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday.

I hope not. He's still one of the best TE's in the league. I'm betting he comes back.

Atlanta has a good team, I hate to say it also. They have strong players, they are just not good enough.

They may have individual talent, but they have nothing that holds them together as a team or any leadership. All that rah-rah, cheerleading BS you hear out of Matt Ryan is 'false motivation'.

Baltimore has Ray Lewis, you can even argue for Joe Flacco who has (1) playoff win in each of his five years in the league and now he's taken his team to the SB. You don't hear any stupid, motivational quotes from him.

New York has Eli, Denver has Payton, Packers have Rodgers, Patriots/Brady, Saints/Brees, Redskins/RGIII ... all successful teams have something Atlanta does not, an inspirational leader that can rally the team when the going gets tough.

... this space intentionally left blank ...

The Falcons are a good team. They just need to find away to get over the hump.
