I admire you, honestly. I've actually been thinking about trying to give up watching football all together because of how I feel after a loss. It really does not matter but it upsets me for days and I'm kind of starting to hate that.

I don't know.

Re: Five and One

At the end of the day its only football.
If this ruins your night and you feel like cursing out coaches and placing blame you have a shallow life indeed.

Re: Five and One

Dang, when did I join a falcons board? I know it was a hard loss to swallow but the way some are reacting you'd think we just dropped to 1-5. Sorry, I know there's a lot to gripe about with this game but it isn't the worst loss we could endure and at least it wasn't Jacksonville on the other side of the field with us laying one of those huge eggs against such teams as we will, on occasion, do.

I used to be like that. Still am sometimes but like I said, it's up to you. Now during the game it's a different story. Sometimes I just have to change the channel or something.

Re: Five and One

I'll tell y'all this much...I can sure-sight handle a loss like this to a good team on the road than, say, these blasts from the past:

3) 2003 @ Jacksonville: we score a TD with zero seconds left on a miracle fluke kickoff return and our kicker misses the extra point and we lose by 1 and eventually knocks us from a playoff spot.
2) 1999 in the Dome: rookie QB for an expansion team throws a hail mary to give them their first win and we lose 21-16, dropping to 1-6 for the year.
1) 1980 @ SF: in the midst of a 0-13 season, we lead Montana and SF 35-7 at half, only to lose 38-35 in OT and drop to 0-14.

There are numerous others that get honorable mention (playoffs @ SEA and @ SF), but at least we were in the playoffs at that time.

Put it in perspective, as this game today is not that big of a heartbreak. We've seen much harder times 'round here. We've had it good in the very recent past and this present time. Have a sense of humor about it; it's much easier than the alternate.

Re: Five and One

A loss like this stings longer than a win feels good.

Huge bright spots:

131 yards rushing *5 Yards per carry!
5 sacks
I agree -- the run game improvement was very, very encouraging. And, I thought the defense played well against a Brady & Co.

Play calling in the final minutes totally sucked azz. That last first down we needed -- still can't swallow what happened.

Anybody says they are happy at a loss -- does not belong here.

Go trip with the Falcons about next year.

Cool you jets there pal. I am well aware that we were unbeaten and are now beaten. Did you really expect us to go 16-0? If so then you need to get out of that fantasy world you're living in. I was making mention of the fact that some on here were acting like our season was now in peril over this one loss much like those idiots in atlanta act. As far as your last statement goes don't you ever couple me in with that fanbase again and actually READ what I wrote and notice that I ended it with a smile and a wink!!!
