Now they're decimated with injuries, combined with a really weak O-line to start with.

Their defense isn't very good against the run or pass.

Their offense is really weak running the ball, and their passing game is OK.

We're really good against the pass.

Week 1 and week 12 are apples and oranges.
I totally agree with that. Everyone knows NFL teams evolve over a season. Where you killed a team or beat them at the beginning of the season, that same opponent can be just the opposite by the end.

For example, we really didn't know much about this defense for the first game. After the win, at best, I was "optimistic" we wouldn't tank on defense.

Fast forward to now and I feel our defense has been more effective than our offense at times this season. It's truly our "secret weapon" that many just can't grasp until the day after they play us and they're pretty banged up.

Falcon's aren't going to be the same team we played week one.... then again, let's hope the Saints aren't sitting on their hands. Every once in a while we tank (like the Jets game), but usually not on the home stretch.

30th against the run and 22nd against the pass to be exact

Re: This will be Atlantas Super Bowl

Another reason for optimism... the last time Drew played in Atlanta he threw 5 picks.

THAT ain't happening tonight. I have a feeling Drew remembers that night. I think he plays with lazer beam focus and is absolutely 100% committed to ripping their damn hearts out tonight.

Re: This will be Atlantas Super Bowl

ATL sports radio is pretty bad, but one guy who does an am show with Randy Cross made a good point today: Atlanta hasn't changed anything as they go through this slump
Th Giants started horribly, adjusted, turned it around. Same could be said for Philly & Carolina, and to lesser degrees Pittsburgh and even Tampa.
ATL has gone from losing to good teams to losing to crappy ones, without changing their philosophy. Instead they are playing backups (who are really 3rd stringers)
When we lose a weapon offensively, we just plug in a new one and change our play-call. But, Smith is not Payton
