I can’t believe how worked up people are getting about losing a few preseason games…sheesh. They’ll be fine.

Geezzzz … It’s preseason, a couple of years ago, the Lions went 4-0 in the preseason, and then 0-16 in the regular season. Preseason means NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING!

D-Led, who is that guy that is always standing behind Coach Smith? I’ve always wondered that. Almost every interview that you see with Smith, that guy is standing there. Is that his body guard or something? Or just an assistant coach? Thanks.

For all the “the sky is falling” fans and trolls; idea! Think “worst case scenario” for every Falcons’ game and then be pleasantly surprised with the “actual outcome” of each game!
where are the true fans

I think that might be their PR person to make sure that Mike and the players don’t say the wrong things and to tell the media how long they have with each person

I think people should calm down a little. Not saying let them off the hook completely but to back off a little. The offence is fine, we had the same problem last year in preseason where the ball couldn’t find the end zone. The front 7 are great so far allowing very little in the run game and really starting to put the QB on there backs. The DBs on the other hand ALL need to step up. On the 44 yard TD pass it should have easily been intercepted and they give up to many yards after the catch. Special teams don’t look to special to me, our new kicker has a weak leg, and we have allowed to many yards and miss to many tackles, same on defense stop with the big hit wrap up and put them on the ground. So far I say this team is 75% ready to repeat what they did last year, they need to make up those last 25% in a hurry.

@ronfalconfan…What are you doing, untying your shoes? You must be since you used the word “loosing”. I think the word you were looking for is “LOSING”. Seems to be an epidemic on these blogs.

What’s with the “tough test” headline. First of all it’s the last preseason game and we probably see less than 10 minutes of the starters. Second, it’s the last preseason game and coaches are trying to see what individuals can do so the can get rid of 27 more bodies in 3 days. Third, and I may have mentioned this, it’s the last preseason game, and the goal is don’t get hurt. Not sure how tough a test that might turn out to be, but it’s the only one they have to pass. And lastly, it’s the last preseason game!
