Atlanta is the world’s largest outhouse. I have fond memories of taking dumps there.

I hope the Falcons beat the crap out of Grenn Bay. The national meadia is all over the Green Bay bandwagon. The Falcons get no respect at all. Green Bay is a good football team, no doubt, but this is the same team that lost to DETROIT for gods sake. In a must win game AT HOME against Chicago they managed to sqeak out a victory (Bears had nothing to play for and still had a chance at the end to win). I know the Falcons could lose but the meadia love fair with Green Bay is horrible…

For gawd’s sake, RTS, take a sedative. This “lack of respect schtick I find everytime I come to this site is laughable at best. In case you’re not aware of it, the Atlanta Falcons are the #1 seed in the NFC. Further, if you watched the Packers/Bears game and actually understand football… you’ll be aware that the Bears played ALL of their starters right to the end. Lovie Smith specifically stated he was doing so to eliminate Green Bay.

Yep, Detroit was a stinker…matter of fact, in all 6 of Green Bay’s regular season losses, it could be argued and substantially backed up that the Green Bay Packers defeated themselves each time including the first matchup between these two teams. If I were a Falcons fan frequenting this site, I’d say that the Falcons had something to do with the Pack not playing so well the first time around…and that would be correct. I’m not taking a thing away from the Falcons. They’re the number 1 seed, and rightly so. They’re a good team. You’ll get more media hype than you think you can stand if and when they get to the SuperBowl…and your cup will runneth over if they’d WIN the SuperBowl. So…quit your bellyaching.

Still…this is going to be a good game – whether the Pack win or lose … or whether the Falcons win or lose. If the first game is any indication of what to expect tonight, THIS is going to one knock-down-drag out-slobber knocking game. Even though I am a dyed-in-the-wool Packers fan, I will be rooting for whomever wins to completely and utterly obliterate the BARES next weekend.

You’re a jack — Who are you to come to OUR blog and tell us how to behave? I don’t think that anyone would say “You can’t be here” but have some manners. This IS for Falcon fans. Do you really think that hours before the game we want you around? Wake up Badger and go away.

Another choke job by the Falcons in a big game. It’s so hard to be a Falcons fan. Guess I have to go to work next week and hear it from the haters…..as usual.

This Gets Old! —- Your opinion really doesn’t matter to me. See…I was looking for football discussion and all I could find were clowns discussing why Green Bay doesn’t have cheerleaders. The answer quite simply is that the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field are ALL about FOOTBALL. Sorry if I offended you and/or your high school. I’ll grant you guys one thing…the Falcons have some pretty cute cheerleaders.

Let this be a lesso to you all…God does not like ugly. The Gods have avenged the evil and ugly ways of the Atlanta Falcons and their fans. The energies of truth and balance have cursed the Falcons and their fans for “making fun” of New Orleans and Katrina.

The best regular season record is meaningless if you do not get to the NFC championship. The Weaknesses have been exposed. The secondary (corners) needs to be be revamped. There is a great one available in Oakland who can play some man to man. The growth of the QB is still at least another year away and the defensive focus has to be more aggressive. The future is bright, but changes will have to be made if a championship is in order. I will still forever represent the Falcons from Reno, Nevada-Out

THIS LOSS WAS SO BAD, THAT ALL THE FALCON’S PLAYOFF LOSSES COMBINED WOULD NOT MATCH WHAT HAPPENED SAT. NITE! WE WERE AT THE HOUSE, AND PLAYED LIKE A 9-7 WILD CARD ROAD TEAM! WE EVEN HAD A SPECIAL TEAMS TD, AND THAT DID NOT HELP! MATT RYAN AND THE OFFENSE COULD NOT MUSTER MORE THAN 2 TD’S? WE ARE PAYIN MATTY ICE BIG BOY MONEY TO DELIVER AS ONE OF THE TOP QB’S IN THE LEAGUE! 2 INT’S AND A FUMBLE ON A QB SNEAK TELLS ME, HE IS NOT READY! EVEN AS A 3YR STARTER!

Fire the Defense Coor. NOW~~~~~~~~~ Or just more the same next year. No matter who you draft in April for that defense…..It won’t help.
