We throw incomplete quick 3 and outs on 2 drives and send that terrible defense right back out there to fend for themselves again. Those two drives may not have ended in points but if they would've taken even one minute off of that clock Ingrams run would've iced that game

The run game isn't even in the top five reasons we lost

Am I speaking Chinese ? If your defense is that bad , protect them by running the ball !

There's plenty of blame in this loss, but abandoning the run was as much of the problem as the turnover battle, mistackles, timely penalties, ineffective pass rush...
I disagree. I'm all about balance on offense and running more may have lowered the scoring, but you still have to stop the other team period.

The Falcons were the better team today. Face it and let's get on with the season. We get another chance on our own turf.

Yes , but when your defense shows you it cannot stop the opposition you protect them by keeping them off the field , running the clock , running the ball

Think about it this why , picture any great defense from nfl history , I bet any amount of money those teams had a nasty rushing attack to go along with it.

Patrick Robinson should be cut, our D line did nothing all game, tackling was pathetic (Keenan lewis especially), they kept putting Hawthorne in to cover Douglas (WTF!!!)

When we did get pressure no one could sack matt Ryan, no deep balls were thrown and jairus Byrd was still playing 20 yards deep
