FACTS: Ryan had a great game. Turner had a very good game. The rookie Palmer looks like he has the tools to play in this league.
The Bengals had a great day passing. But what I saw was Cedric Benson run 21 times and only gain 84 yards. Abraham had a super game, but one of the most important players on this day was that of free agent Vance Walker. He was a force in the middle and out to the edge. He was a major reason the Bengals HAD to pass. He has more upside against the run than either Jerry or Peters.
And when will clowns that think they know football finally quit saying Grimes is too short? He has extraordinary speed and leaping ability.

October 26th, 201012:07 am
ok aints whats up lost to the browns. where did the other two team that give u losees?
October 26th, 201012:17 am
It doesn’t matter, there are 4 teams in the AFC which will have their way with any team that emerges from the NFC this season. However there is a caveat. That being some team with a QB with a dynamic play caller and that has a running game to balance a vertical passing game to take their shots when they avail themselves might have a chance… You won’t dink and dunk your way to championship… Seattle tried that, it won’t get it done…

Don’t think so! The falcons do not have the defense to be considered the best; furthermore, they have to improve winning on the road. The falcons have had alot of breaks go there way and that happens in the NFL. I believe the Giants are the best in the NFC. I guess we will see tonight!
OK, so are we going to say the Giants are better then the Falcons because of the Giant defense? Yeah, I didn’t think so. The NFC is wide open right now and to date you have to say the Falcons are one of the better teams. That being said, with their upcoming schedule they will either prove it or become a wild card hopeful.

I was going to ask for a translation but noticed the entry was 2am, you were probably a little buzzed so you get a pass.
However I feel compelled to mention that the NYG are ranked 2nd in total defense.

The best team doesn’t always go to the Super Bowl, last year is a perfect example.

First off.. Ledbetter that interview was horrible. You good sir have a voice strictly for writing.. However I loved the comments.
I am a Born and Raised Falcon fan but Im not sold on our secondary yet. Im gonna need DeCoud to play better because all the big plays we’ve given up were because he was out of position. Spoon needs to rest and get ready to come on back in to continue terrorizing the other teams. And lastly good go on the less predictable play calling. Open up the playbook and let Ryan go. I think in order for us to be taken seriously we have to beat the teams no one expects us to beat and beat them consistantly through out the year..
Quietly, Im hoping we win a superbowl cause Im sick of having that terrible feeling of we almost did it this year and sitting in the corner watching some other team hoist the trophy. I want to see us hoist the trophy for once.. I think when that happens I can go to my grave a happy man. And it would be a nice payback for my family having season tickets for 37 years. So come on Falcons and win so my Dad wont look so bad for having his entire family out in the cold at Fulton County stadium with our yearly vacation being a trip to New Orleans for the Falcons/Aints game..

Don’t forget, last years SB winner had the 25th ranked defense.
October 26th, 201010:50 am
Saints will lose to
Pittsburgh @ Superdome
Seattle @ Superdome
Atlanta @Georgia Dome
Tampa Bay @ Superdome
………………….that’s a 3-6 finish for a 2010 campaign of 7-9…………..that might drive some aints fans back to the sack.
October 26th, 201011:04 am
This “mo’s gator s’wich to geaux” guy is hilarious.

I agree Sid but, they did have an explosive offense and yes, we can have one also. I still say in most championship years defense wins it. I do like our chances against any team in the NFC and that means the Eagles as well.
October 26th, 20101:07 pm
If they play in the Ga Dome they can beat anyone in the NFL.
October 26th, 20101:22 pm
whar be ma boyfreind, seenthisb4? cum hear boyfreind.
October 26th, 20102:02 pm
I think the Falcons and Giants are the best two teams in the NFC right now. I think the Falcons have the running game that can neutralize defenses and I think Matt Ryan is getting better and better every week. The offensive weapons are definitely there for him. I think the defense will be alot stronger when we get Spoon and Dunta back after the bye week.
October 26th, 20102:05 pm
October 26th, 2010
I would agree, it is not normal for a 25th ranked defense to take you to the big dance. But that just makes it more obvious how strong Brees was last year.

It’s not D.Leds voice, whatever he is using for audio is not good enough for this medium. There is equipment that can compress and enhance, my guess he is just using his laptop and that won’t get the kind of quality needed.
October 26th, 20102:51 pm
waer ya be, seen ?
October 26th, 20104:07 pm
What a breath of fresh air it is to even be mentioned as the best team in the NFC!!!!!!!!!!
This team is maturing every week. I think losing to the Eagles will be looked at as a turning point.
This is our year, we will be crowned Champions!
October 26th, 20104:17 pm
Hey did yall see me get blowed up last night?
October 26th, 20104:54 pm
Hey D LED please please tell who ever does the falcons web page it really stinks, and they need to get ride of the adds for publix etc. Just falcons insight please
October 26th, 20106:38 pm
seen. i be hear fo yo.
October 26th, 20107:13 pm
The Falcon’s have the makings of a great Team, But it’s going to take a lot of detacation from all the Team.
October 26th, 20107:19 pm
dedication is good
October 26th, 20107:22 pm
1 falcons 2 gaints 3 eagles 4 GB 5 saints 6 skins 7 vikings 8 chicago
October 26th, 20108:36 pm
I think you nailed it, EXCEPT, I would swap GB & Philly. (minor adjustment.)

@AUTHER BLANK,you can’t be writing blank comments on blogs.

Mr.Blanks-STEAVE SLATON,is your speed back.he’s on the bench give him a chance.
October 27th, 20104:47 pm
I feel that the Falcons are getting better… My favorite team….won’t say they are the best team in the NFC right now. The Giants, Eagles,Packers are playing well…but stranger things have happen around this time of year. Like the Saints… Last year, they didn’t look as the dominant team in the NFC… Everything they wanted they got double… And also a lady luck had made some cameo appearances. I would love to see my Falcons go to the “big dance” and win it in the “billion dollar stadium built by Jerry Jones. I love that slogan: “Rise Up”…. Kinda like that Maya Angelou poem: “Still I Rise”
