FLOWERY BRANCH – The Falcons got the weekend off after winning their second game in five days.

Here’s what they are saying after the game:

MATT RYAN, quarterback

ON THE GAME WINNING DRIVE: “We had been getting some pressure.

Early in the drive we were getting a lot of zone coverage. After we hit the out route to Mike Jenkins, then they started to pressure it up a little bit. On that pass to Roddy, it was a really good call to get outside the pocket because they brought pressure inside. Ed Reed was in man-to-man coverage on Tony (Gonzalez) and it was the same route Roddy had caught a touchdown pass on the goal line. Being the player that he is, he adjusted to that.”

ON THE DECISION TO GO NO-HUDDLE: “We talked (Wednesday) night. . . During the week, we talked a little bit about our no huddle package like we do every week.

Then yesterday, I talked with Mike Mularkey quite a bit and that was the direction that he wanted to go. I thought with a short week we had been in that no huddle offense for three years. We’d been doing a lot of the same thing for three years. We felt confident and we know that system really well.”

ON THE KICKOFF COVERAGE UNIT: “They came out there with a great attitude and the effort was outstanding. Everybody was going down the field and making plays.”

ON ERIC WEEMS TACKLE: “That was a big play to get a tackle inside the 20 yard line. That’s the type of play we want to become accustom to seeing from our special teams. For the most part, that’s the way they’ve played since we’ve been here. I thought they bounced back real well from the performance in the previous game against Tampa Bay.”

ON BRENT GRIMES: “Brent had a lot of action last night. I thought that he hung in there. That’s a good receiver corps  . . . I thought Brent played well.”

JASON SNELLING, running back

ON HIS TOUCHDOWN CATCH: “When they pulled that guy inside, I knew I was going to be open when I turned around. Matt saw me and it was just me and the safety. Being a running back, that is a play they ask me to make. I decided to put my shoulder down and I was able to get into the end zone.”

JAMAAL ANDERSON, defensive end

ON THE RAVENS COMEBACK: “We played well in the first half and we kind of let go in the second half. That’s one thing we have always talked about is finishing the game and we feel like we didn’t do it.. We still got the win though. We have a lot to work on but we’ll enjoy this one.”

RODDY WHTIE, wide receiver

UPDATE ON HIS KNEE INJURY: “Once I got going, I had the pre-game warm-ups and things like that. I was alright. I didn’t feel any pain or anything like that. I jus wanted to get out there and get myself moving. Matt threw me a lot of balls on the first drive. He got me going. It just kept rolling.”

ON THE TOUCHDOWN CATCH: “We were actually trying to get the ball to Tony, and they were double-covering him. It left me wide open, with one-on-one coverage with one guy. He tried to grab me and I just pushed him down.”

I left the bar I was watching the game at half time and watched the 2nd half on my computer with just the play by play. When they scored the last touchdown I flew around the house. I admit I had about given up, but what a last scoring drive. Matty Ice what a game. Think we need a nickname for Roddy. Amazing how he has turned into a complete receiver.

Start voting for our pro bowl Falcons, Roddy, Matt, Abe and Gonz. I want the whole team to go to Hawaii. Go Falcons, Thanks for the thrill.

So, ESPN keeps harping on Roddy pushing the DB. With 30 seconds left, an NFL DB is knocked down by a WR’s off hand running the other direction? Me thinks a little bit of it is, half of Roddy’s handfighting the other half being the guy simply fell down.

Falcons took this one fair and square. 7-2 baby. Super Bowl bound!!

No F’n kidding! The Raven’s fans are crying their eyes out over that; how about that cheap hit on Matt from Ed Reed while he was sliding for that first down? Their D is getting old and they lost Rex as the co-ordinator…deal with it, we beat you fair and square; reviewing the video, Roddy hardly touched that guy, he was playing possum.

Raven’s fans have this inferiority complex from getting their asses beat from the Steelers all the time and they blame refs. I saw some holds by their O line here and there all night. In the end, you are arguing balls and strikes. The contact looked to be within 5 yards and it was hand play; he fell on his ass looking for the flag. How many DB’s are that clumsy? Very few in real life.

Wooo Haaaa Falcons got you all in check!

I mentioned on this blog around the Cincy game that this team had 5 games in 6 weeks, and 4 of them at home. We need to win 4 out of 5. Well…they have won 3 of them. Now, just win in St L. and the GB game becomes a bonus. Win 2 out of 3 on the road and we then come into the Monday night game against the Taints 10-4 at worst.

The Falcons have the best record in the NFL, yet go to foxsports.com and there are 0 articles about the Falcons. There are, however, 2 about the 1-7 Cowboys.

The math shows the after the Ravens game and before the Sunday games are played….the Falcons are a 94.8% chance of making the playoffs. (and practically 100% chance of 3 winning seasons in a row.)

I hate to be negative at a time like this, but I’ve noticed something all this season. I’m probably wrong about it, but it appears that M. Turner frequently lacks vision. That is, he’ll run up the middle into an obvious pile and goes nowhere while there seems to be a clear lane to the outside where it appears he would make more yardage? But instead of veering right, he’ll plow right ahead and go nowhere. I’m sure there’s a good reason beyond my knowledge of the game.

November 12th, 2010

Big O, youre not the only one who has noticed this. I think it stems not from a lack of vision, but from a decision to go a certain direction and sometimes it just doesnt work out.
Sometimes also, there are plays designed as simple “possession runs” meaning, they are just attempting to gain 2-3 yards and roll the clock. Other times, the defense just guessed right and choked up your blocking scheme.

Hey, those big bad bully Ravens. Ovie jacked up and totally detroyed Ray Lewis. Took him about two feet into the air and destroyed him. That sort of sets a tone.
William Moore tackled Rice on a run and about cut him in half.
Flacco wasn’t hearing footsteps, it was the stampede led by Abraham.
Bottom line is when other teams look at the film on this one for the first time in a long time there will be a fear factor–and for good reason.

Did you actually watch the games Neon Dion played in? I’ll never claim he could tackle but I can specifically remember him going after a few people. Specifically one instance comes to mind… San Fran’s TE Jones. Dion ran at him full speed and get the stuffing knocked out of him. I can understand why he didn’t try to tackle after that. What corner has commanded the respect he did? NO ONE. 1/3rd of the field was off limits with him out there. Not just in Atlanta but even later in San Fran.

Definitely a Ring of Fame player for us… I just wish we hadn’t built his persona up so much with all the smoke and entrance junk we did for him… Then again it was fun to watch as a teenager.

Defense Puts It On Them

Typically, if the Ravens’ defense was put in a position to salt away a game with a fourth-quarter lead, there would be no question of a Baltimore victory.

That didn’t happen Thursday night, when the Ravens relinquished a 21-20 lead to the Atlanta Falcons with 65 seconds left, eventually falling 26-21 at the Georgia Dome.

Safety Ed Reed might have summed it up best, shouting “We let them off the hook!” as he walked through the post-game locker room.

“He’s right, we let them off the hook,” said linebacker Jarret Johnson, who was within earshot of Reed’s comment. “They’re a good team, especially at home. We had them and didn’t finish them.”

It was the fourth fourth-quarter lead the Ravens’ historically solid defense has given up this year, and three of those games resulted in losses. The Ravens surrendered a late lead to the Buffalo Bills and needed an overtime field goal to beat them.

Baltimore, which entered Thursday’s contest as the NFL’s No. 9 defense in yards per game (310.8), let Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan march 80 yards in seven plays immediately after Joe Flacco hit Todd Heap in the end zone for a one-point advantage at the 1:05 mark.

Ryan did benefit from two controversial calls. His 24-yard completion to Michael Jenkins was reviewed by officials when he seemed to bobble the ball as he went out of bounds, but the catch stood.

And Roddy White’s 33-yard touchdown catch caused an uproar in the press box when he made contact with Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson, causing Wilson to hit the turf as White broke free to the end zone.

“You could say a lot of things. It’s the easy way to point your finger at the refs,” said linebacker Terrell Suggs, who was called for a facemask penalty on another Falcons touchdown drive even though replays clearly showed his facemask was also grabbed. “I think us as professionals got to do a good job of looking at ourselves.

“What did we do that cost us the game? We got to do a good job of not beating ourselves.”

After a first half where Atlanta converted eight of 12 first downs and jumped to a 10-0 advantage, the Ravens held strong for four more third-down conversions.

But one of those was a result of Jenkins’ sideline grab. Atlanta got another set of downs on third down on that drive when linebacker Tavares Gooden was flagged for pass interference.

“When you give up the points like we did in the first half, it’s extremely hard to come back and beat somebody at home,” said linebacker Ray Lewis. “You always want that chance. The disappointing thing is that you can’t start like that, because the game is going to play out the way the game is going to play out.

“That was a game we were supposed to close out. We need to come back and correct what we’re supposed to correct, no matter what it was we were supposed to do.”

Third Down A Pest For Ravens

With the way the Ravens played in the first half of Thursday night’s game, Head Coach John Harbaugh said he was pleased his team trailed by just 10 points at intermission.

That’s because the Ravens were far behind in time of possession and offensive plays, largely because of troubles on third down both defensively and offensively.

The Ravens defense surrendered a season-high 12 third-down conversions in 20 chances (60 percent) on the game. Offensively, Baltimore converted 1-of-4 attempts in the first half as Atlanta’s pass rush hurried quarterback Joe Flacco.

“I thought the difference was third down,” Harbaugh said. “In the first half especially, they converted their third downs. We didn’t. That contributed to the fact that they had a huge differential in plays.”

In the first half, the Falcons ran 43 plays compared to the Ravens’ 17. Atlanta owned time of possession 21:14 to 8:46.

The problem is somewhat surprising considering Baltimore’s defense came into Thursday’s game ranked 7th in the NFL in third down percentage.

Additionally odd is Atlanta’s success in third-and-long. In total, the Falcons went 6-for-10 in 3rd-and-more-than-5 situations, including picking three up via penalty.

It started with a 28-yard gain to wideout Roddy White on 3rd-and-17 on the Falcons’ first series. The biggest came on a 24-yard sideline completion to Michael Jenkins on 3rd-and-10 that sparked Atlanta’s game-winning march.

“It’s tough. You want to get off the field,” cornerback Chris Carr said. “Third down conversions are critical. They’re always a vital part of the game. It was just unfortunate we didn’t come up with enough stops on third down, but you have to tip your hat to them because they played well.”

Atlanta’s offense entered the game ranked 2nd in the NFL in converting on third downs with a 46.3 percent success rate.

Baltimore’s offense did improve on third down in the second half, going 5-of-7 to finish the game 6-of-11 (55 percent).

Byrne Identity: Here’s What You Didn’t See
Harbaugh and Reed’s message in the locker room huddle after the gut-wrenching defeat.

by Kevin Byrne
What a ride last night!

Lows, highs and a downer in the end.

Fantastic, playoff-type environment with two of the NFL’s best teams slugging it out on national television.

Along with a strong contingent of Ravens’ fans at the Georgia Dome – and we salute you guys for joining us in the battle – we could almost feel the energy from Ravens fans watching at home when Joe Flacco hit Todd Heap for what could have been the winning touchdown with 1:05 left in the game.

And, we certainly know that you felt our hurt, disappointment and frustration when Matt Ryan threw the 33-yard TD to Roddy White with 20 seconds left in the contest.

Did Michael Jenkins juggle the ball as he went out bounds? Did White, who indicated after the game he did, get away with a push on Josh Wilson on the game winner? Doesn’t matter. It’s over. We lost.

(And, note, that despite much prodding from reporters – who were doing their jobs when asking our players and coaches about officials’ calls or lack of calls in the fourth quarter – our guys didn’t gripe.)

Gut-wrenching defeats like this hurt the most and put the head coach in a difficult position after the game. Minutes earlier, John Harbaugh was doing everything he could to win a game that turned into a loss. Now, he had to face his team and deliver a message to our emotionally-charged team.

After a team prayer (the “Our Father”), John asked everybody in the locker room to get in close. “Let’s stand shoulder-to-shoulder. I’m proud of the way you fought tonight.” After a pause as the men formed a tighter huddle in the middle of the cramped room, “Harbs” continued: “We will learn from this. This is a tough loss. Feels like a playoff loss on the road in a rough environment. I know this: We will come back. We will get better. We have to get better to win games like these, and we will.

“Give credit to the Falcons,” Harbaugh continued. “They deserve it for finding a way to win this game. They’re a very good team.”

With that, Ed Reed stepped into the middle of the circle. “Coach, I got something. Guys, tough, tough game in a tough atmosphere. We all know it’s a tough loss. Let’s remember how we feel right now and learn from this. We don’t want to feel like this again. Like Coach says, we will get better.”

After Ed spoke, Coach Harbaugh turned to Joe Flacco: “Joe, break the huddle for us.” The big quarterback, who was spectacular in the last 25 minutes of the game, stepped into the middle of the group and said in a commanding voice: “We’ll build on the good things we did tonight. Family on three. One, two, three.” And the chorus shouted: “FAMILY!”

Family: that’s what a football team is that has outstanding leadership from players, coaches and front office. Inside that huddle stood Ozzie Newsome, Ray Lewis, Anquan Boldin, Cam Cameron and Greg Mattison, Jarret Johnson, Haloti Ngata, Dick Cass, Derrick Mason, Ray Rice and Matt Birk, and more. Strong men. Smart people. A resilient group.

I’ll ride with these guys any time.

This journey has a lot of miles left. For sure, there will be more twists and turns. Bends in the road that we can’t predict today. I like the car the Ravens are driving. Fasten your seatbelts. Like Coach, Ed and Joe said in the huddle: WE’RE MOVING FORWARD!

Talk with you next week.

Ryan made the Ravens pay a dear price for stacking eight man in the box…Ryan played an outstanding game with a prolific aerial attack. Matty Ice proven he can beat the cover two and 3-4 alignment defense in dominant fashion. Now teams will have to re-game plan for the Falcons because Ryan passed the ball around forcibly against a vaunted Raven’s defense.

Showing he can do it against D like the Ravens should boost his confidence to new heights and put fright in opposing teams.

As usual Roddy had a beastly game, snatching all but two passes thrown his way but the ones he caught pay dividends in the win.

what a catch by Jenkins.

The Falcons got solid performance for so many players. GREAT WIN
