5 of the 9 remaining are home games. We have two left against Carolina and two against Tampa and one against the Rams. Two of the toughest games remaining are home games against Ravens and Packers. There is reason for optimism.

Tell Santa that I need playoff tickets.

GO YOU!!!!!! lets show much more class as Falcons fans!!!!!! Be 1st to go buy some tickets so the dome is full for the home games and give our team a home field edge!!!!!!!!

DOL thanks for all the fun insite on our team! The more we learn about the team and the coach and TD, the more clear it is, we are a 1st class run TEAM!!!!!!!!!!

I do have a question DOL? Do you see us trying to upgrade at LT & C. durning the offseason?

When did we move Erik Coleman to cornerback? And is Harvey Dahl wearing eyeliner? Not sure I like these video clips…

Dude, you do really good work, but you definitely have a print media voice… Thanks for understanding a blog is for interacting with the participants. Dave O’Brien doesn’t have a clue….

Falcons shold not take the week off of practice. Thehy need 2 work on thigs 4 example Roddy needs 2 learn not 2 fumbel the ball. Matt Ryan needs 2 learn not 2 through INT. Mr Blanks need 2 learn how 2 sigh better WR.

According to AJC bloggers and the injury list, here are some of the Falcon’s draft “busts”:

Jamal Anderson
Peria Jerry
William Moore
Harry Douglas
Michael Jenkins
Sean Witherspoon
Matt Ryan (turf toe; should have drafted Dorsey)

Keep up the great couch potato GM work bloggers. Any other team would be excelling with the players you would propose to cut.

Witherspoon is a bust. He is alwas injrued. Same with Perrier Jery and Harry Douglus. Jenkins just never was N E good. Jamal Anderson should be a probowel player cuz he was drated high, yet he only play a few downs a gme…..BUST!

Oh and Mr Blanks need to sign beter WR. He had a chance at TO and Randy Moss and did not get them. The team will suffer this year. I would not B surprized if they dont win anoter game this year.

Joe Tess/Camaro Bob… do you realize how much precious time you waste every day trolling the Falcon’s blogs with nothing positive, intelligent or insightful to add?

I think the bye week came at the perfect time for the Falcons this year. Sometimes like last year when their bye was very early in the season it really doesn’t help all that much. It gives the Falcons the opportunity to get healthier with Sean Weatherspoon and Dunta Robinson banged up. As for the offense I think with an extra week of preparation they should be ready to go against the Tampa Bay Bucs.

SeenthisB4. Take your psychotic alter egos, Joe Tess and Camaro Bob, and go down to mo’s restaurant, stay off this blog and leave the sane people alone.

Some of these folks on this blog are unintelligent and never have anything pertinent to say. They seem to wollow in negativity.

Dled thanks for the update, keep up the great week. Any word on Spoon or Robinson regarding their injuries? Do you think we will see more of Gatrell Johnson? I would love it if we could use him as a change of pace back on third downs and as a recieve out of the back field.

If “DOL creeps you out” you need to get a life. Mr. Ledbetter is simply a great guy !

mark, we saw Gatrell for one play. But for twenty-three yards ! ! I think that warrants some more playing time. I agree ! !

@Front Row I agree. Blank does. I also agree that its the same guy over and over again on here with different names trying to get a rise out of people. He cant possibly believe half the cattle-crap that comes out of his own mouth.lol

@ SirReal…
That was good analysis on the end of the last blog… I think Mora gets scapegoated a lot for a lack of professionalism within the players. Still, he was a prime part of the culture…

Well, so many of you are on to me, I’ve decided to come clean and confess. Falcant’s suk ! No, well yea, but I’m confessing to being the one that has posted as Joe Tess, Camaro Bob, and before as Cheese Steak, Kew and appatl.

I’m sorry and promise to stop. It was a bad joke, but you got to admit, I had all you going for quite some time. But it is getting tiring to keep up, so I am quitting.

BYE.

For years I was in the “media” business and now I schmooze with the likes of Orlando Ledbetter and Jeff Schulz. So, obviously, I know a lot. Fact is, I’m brilliant. Anyway, as important as that is, I do have a point to make (of course.)

Back when I was doing serious work, I won a Pulitzer prize for an article I did relating to my research on people that are narcissistic anonymous bloggers that submit under various names with the intent to annoy people. Current case in point, SeenThisB4. My conclusion, after exhaustive research is that these folks are nuts ! stendek
