Re: The Falcons Suck

Can someone explain to me how were are only "half" a game up from the Panthers. I read an article on nfl.com which said this.

As I understand, we are effectively two games up on the Panthers. One game clear and a superior division record which includes a win against them?

We had a bye week already as a result of the London game. Theirs will be a little later.

Re: The Falcons Suck

There's only 2 other teams that began 0-2 and won 6 straight. '93 Cowboys, '07 Giants. We know what happened to them...
CHAMPIONSHIP!

Re: The Falcons Suck

The 3 next games are away against the Bills, Skins, and Rams. I think those will be tougher than the Clowns.

A bit of "football semantics", but tie breakers (head to head result, division record, etc) don't really count as games ahead or behind, it's only the W-L record that counts when discussing games ahead/behind.

By their records, the Saints are ahead 1/2 game because they have the same number of wins, but have played 1 less game, and we don't know what the outcome of that game is. If the Saints and the Panthers both were 6-3, it'd be said that their records are even, but the Saints win the tie breaker.

Re: The Falcons Suck

The hardest game is the next one.
One game at a time and keep your eye on the ball.

Thats the way to go
