Fake QB= Fake team Ryan is a joke ! You guys had to take a bounty out on D-Jack or he would have looked like Vick last year, like it was a video game out there. He could of had 5 TDs today thanks for messing my fantasy record breaking day up, you hoodlums. Kevin Kolb looked like a Pro Bowler & William Moore is overrated. Matty Ice melted today haha lol

Ledbetter, you are a true genesis, if you get more insightful you need to move on to writing about greater endeavors than sport.

The Eagles defensive plan was to stop Atlanta’s running game and force Matt Ryan to beat them. Of course, Matt did not step up his game. Also, it appears Atlanta’s Offensive Coordinator did not make adjustments when the Eagles started the game with 8 defenders in the box. What is the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. The falcons must change up their game plan.

Hopefully, you bunch of falcan’t fans bought a good supply of deodorant this weekend, cause I can virtually see those beads of sweat starting to flood those low brows!
It’s just a matter of time before the Saints reclaim their rightful place atop the NFC South Divison!
Hey Sid-bean-counter: Go ahead and post some team stats. You’re good at that!
GEAUX SAINTS! OUR TIME!!
October 18th, 20108:37 am
Please have your GM fire the OC, that had to be the worst set of play calling I’ve ever seen. (2) Have you ever wondered why the Eagles beat the breaks off of the falcons every year? (3) We are what our record say we are, we barely beat teams we are suppose to beat, but when we play solid playoff caliber teams we get drugged in the dirt. (4) This team is not that good. (5) The QB is not special, just average so stop fooling yourself. (6) Mike Smith appears to be a very nice guy, but he has to surround himself with some innovative coaches that can transform this team to a team of the 21st century. (7) I’m a Falcon fan who stuck with the team through all the ruff years, but my patients is getting thin. If you are serious about winning championships, due what the team that win do. (Look at their rosters, look at them, they have star players, not just the old build a solid team through the draft). How many stars do you have on your teams that are recognized as stars outside of Atlanta? Who on your team gets bragged on every week on sports shows and radio? You need play makers! (8) Read the eagle comments before the game that they gave Atlanta. No respect. They didn’t say Atlanta D was good, they said they were ok and Atlanta had small corners. They said Atlanta Offence was alright but we’re prepared for them (with a back up offensive line) it want be a problem. Something to think about, when was the last time we beat a solid top ranked playoff caliber team?
October 18th, 20108:41 am
Damn Jekyll and Hyde team, Ryan had to bring his A game and he left that in the locker room. Basically the Falcons were completely outcoached. Ryan is not kidding anyone with where he is going with the ball…………hardly ever does he pump fake or look off the D. Congrats to Reid, he smoked us.
I agree Season Ticket Holder, can we not make any adjustments on fly………!! If nothing else when our D gets embarrassed it brings them back to reality, you have to play every down.
Wash in Atl and Seen, truth be told you neonates never write about football……………..ever. You don’t even banter, just spew crap, the same stuff that comes from your butt. Seriously, it is hard to understand why you bother to show up, but by all means, please keep coming, because we will know that as long as you are here you have no life and eventually when you are gone we will know you are dead, there is a God.
October 18th, 20108:44 am
Blackbird, I agree with you on everything except patients…………..it’s patience.
We got outcoached………….period…..
October 18th, 20108:51 am
The OC doesn’t make any call on the fly; he prepares 15 plays before the game and sticks with them. Someone please tell me why they don’t let Snelling take over the rushing plays when Tuner is off his game. Also can someone tell me why we jumped back into the first round to draft Sam baker?
October 18th, 20108:57 am
Why do I bother to show up? That’s easy to answer: Cause I don’t want to be dying in my bed my many years from now, wishing that I could trade everyday, from this day to that day, for just one chance, one chance to come here and tell my football enemies, that you may have beaten our team on a shanked field goal, but they’ll never take, Our Lombardi!
The reality is Sid, that you were one of the j-wads baiting me to post here last week, and this week, well,it’s a little different when the shoe is on the other foot, isn’t it?
I finally saw that hit Dumta put on DeSean this morning,…. big time hit. Legal hit in my opinion. I bet most falcan’t fans would support that, I know I do. If he gets fined, it’s just another straw for the political correctness in this league. But, if the hit had been reversed, say DeSean Jackson leveled Dumta with his helmet, oh the cries of foul, dirty play, would be deafening here at AJC!
October 18th, 20109:05 am
Mr. Blank last year when the Eagle beat the breaks off us in the Georgia dome you said it was an embarrassment the way the falcons performed. What are your thoughts on the game Sunday? The game was not even as close as the score may suggest.

I posed this earlyier but I thing it is time to bent Matt Ryan and strat Redmond.
October 18th, 20109:47 am
And if I forgot to say it…………………great game Jenkins………..!!!
October 18th, 20109:49 am
Seriously, it is hard to understand why some of you bother to show up, but by all means, please keep coming, because we will all know that as long as you are here you have no life and eventually when you are gone we will know you are dead, there is a God.
Joe Fish, quit posing, it’s embarrassing.
October 18th, 20109:51 am
baiting? ……………….lol, you think you are that important to me…………….moron
October 18th, 20109:52 am
Let’s see, Atlanta lost to the Eagles…………who we all knew would be tough……..
The Saints lost to Arizona………………snicker snicker…………….
October 18th, 20109:55 am
Stop callin me names
October 18th, 20109:56 am
its quiet evidence that Ryan is not getting the job done and it is time 4 Redmond to lead this teem.
October 18th, 20109:58 am
Blackbird, we were in this thing until 12:09 of the first quarter.
October 18th, 201010:00 am
“quiet evidence”………………..sshhhhh be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits………..!!!
October 18th, 201010:08 am
while u r hunting wabbits, try hunting for a new QB
October 18th, 201010:31 am
Joe, very impressive counter……………there is still hope for you……!!
Admittedly, he looked like warmed over crap on a bun yesterday, no special sauce. It kills me how he telegraphs where he is going with the ball. But I still think he is a better QB than Redmond, though Redmond has played some good ball for us.
October 18th, 201010:33 am
Attention, attention– John Parker Wilson report to the office please,John Parker Wilson report to the office please
October 18th, 201010:35 am
And no joe tess, ” we is be need redman” isn’t the answer
October 18th, 201010:37 am
Seen, I guess the problem with the hit by Robinson was he led with his helmet. I’ve looked at the vid several times and Dunta puts his helmet between Jax right shoulder and chest. It was not a helmet to helmet though which I credit Dunta was defintately not trying to put Jax out of the game, just a bad ass hit, that’s all.
October 18th, 201010:40 am
It the hit as much as it was “launching”
October 18th, 201010:41 am
wasn’t the hit as much as launching ..i mean
October 18th, 201010:42 am
He can launch anytime he wants to, if he had hit him around the waist no penalty………..

Whopper Dawg — You are a legend, too. Thanks for recognizing sheer greatness.
singh is king
October 18th, 201011:11 am
next time we play eagles we dont have to worry for jackson .
You can’t launch at all any more. Especially at what they call “defenseless” players.
October 18th, 201011:12 am
fire oc, fire bvg, bring in 3-4 defense and lets begin……………………
October 18th, 201011:47 am
Need to trade Ryan, nice if we could get Bradford, BVG is no pro DC,
October 18th, 201012:24 pm
I hate to defend a falcan’t but that premise of “launching” at a “defenseless” player is foolishness at its core. These guys play at incredible speed, they’re not out there “thinking” about putting a major hit on anybody, they just want to stop the opposing player as fast as possible because that’s what they get paid to do, plus those other players are pretty fast too, if they don’t get them down in that split second they could run right past them. I don’t agree with that premise, the game is just too fast.
October 18th, 201012:43 pm
Why is it that many journalists keep referring to the robinson hit as head to head, 1 it clearly was not as everyone knew after the first replay, 2. just as clearly jackson took 2 steps after catching the ball therefore not defenseless, and 3 not sure how the launching rule is written if indeed it is a rule but there is less force if your feet are off the ground than if they aren’t any physics professor can tell you. The rule sounds like it has good intentions but it makes no rational sense
October 18th, 20101:03 pm
Matt Ryan would be the 3rd string QB in Philly 2 spots behind Vick lol. In 3 yrs he still looks like a deer in headlights. Betcha when its all said & done Matty Ice will not hold a candle to Flacco. Fake defense got a good whipping out there. Must have left the rabbit feet & horseshoes back in ATL . Rise What ????? haha lol
October 18th, 20101:05 pm
More creativity needed on offense. Really needed.
October 18th, 20101:40 pm
a player gets cut or traded for poor performance, so i ask you TD, what are we going to do about the poor performing coaches? mularkey may have been a good OC back in the day, but defenses have evolved since the 19th century. what we need is, a 21st century coach, with a 21st century scheme. mularkeys time has come and gone
October 18th, 20103:42 pm
YOU KNOW WHAT????????????????????
SOME OF THE FANS IN ATLANTA & THE TV FANS & BLOGGERS DONT UNDERSTAND. THEY ARE HURTING THIS FALCON TEAM WITH ALL THIS BULLSH#T….. REDNECK BULLSH#T….HATERS. MR.AUTHUR BLANK YOU ARE CRAZY AS HELL TO LET THESE FANS TELL YOU IN SO MANY WORDS HOW TO RUN YOUR TEAM. (FU#K THEMMMM) SHOP AT LOWES!!!!!! AT THE RATE THIS SH#T IS GOING MR. BLANK YOUR GOING TO LOSE ALL YOUR GOOD PLAYERS BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY FOR REDNECKS. FROM MCKAY ON DOWN BUDDY!!!!!…ITS ALMOST TO LATE FOR YOU MR .BLANK.(HOMEDEPOT OR THE FALCONS) THATS WHY 25,000 OF YOUR OLD FANBASE AN MYSELF SUPPORT MICHAEL VICK (EAGLES). BE A MAN !!!!! A OWNER LIKE JERRY JONES… WITH SOME BALLS…..
October 18th, 20103:53 pm
I dont need 2 see laungue like the above.
October 19th, 201012:42 am
We were out coached and out played. Let’s give Andy Reid and his staff credit for being better prepared than us. When you play an aggressive style of defense, sometime you win the down and sometime you get burnt. Reid took advantage of our style of play.
When we meet them the next time in the playoff, I suspect we will be better prepared. Did we learn anything from Sunday’s loss? You bet we did.

October 19th, 20104:43 pm
There isn’t a QB that would be successful with the offensive play calling of Mularkey and the current OL. The Falcons’ offensive line is not consistently capable of opening holes for RBs nor can they pass protect long enough for the QB to effectively survey the field for an open receiver.
Mularkey needs to be fired RIGHT NOW and TD needs to work the draft and free agents next year to acquire an offensive line. Sam Baker, along with the others, got pushed around and into the backfield all day long in Philadelphia. It was pathetic!!!!!
October 19th, 20105:59 pm
Since the Falcons could not stop the Eagles, NO WAY I see them stopping T.O. AND OCHOCINCO with Palmer back there at QB!
October 19th, 20108:37 pm
I think the Falcons can beat the Bengals, If they start fast and get a lead. Then utilize Turner and Snelling to control time of possession. Hence the play action pass and Gonzales should be open all day. Hopefully we can keep their passing game in front of us. If the defense shows up we can force Carson Palmer to make mistakes. I thought this would be the year that, Thomas Decoud would go to the next level. I haven’t seen him show up like an Ed Reed or troy P of the Pittsburg Steelers yet.
October 20th, 201010:21 am
RISE UP Sunday at the Dome and walk out during the first series. Have “Free Dunta” written on an undershirt, or your chest, and pull up your shirt and show it to the cameras.
Of course you can come back to your seats after you and your breatheren all RISE UP and walk out.
October 20th, 201010:22 am
RISE UP. Stick it to the man! Show the NFL Nazis we don’t have to take it.
FREE DUNTA ! ! ! ! !
October 20th, 201010:53 am
Mike Vick needs to be back in an Atlanta Falcons uniform. If you don’t want black outs, If you want people to be excited, If you want to get the people who really buy the tickets, and MOST IMPORTANTLY… IF YOU WANT TO WIN! Bring Mike Vick BACK. The people who actually buy the tickets, as you can see, are not the ones who attend the games and support the team. Bring him back!
October 20th, 201012:42 pm
Man Roddy you are my boy and all being from the same hometown, but I just watched you in the publix store trying to ice a cake. You remind me of a lunch lady from school back in the day. LOL
