A must win or FIRE COACH CLEAN SHOT ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1st!

Blank shooting Blanks!
No more excuses after getting destroyed in the playoffs last season because of terrible drafting by TD,terrible coaching by Smith and piss very poor player execution by Ryan and the gang!!!
3-9 last 12 including playoff/preseason games(yes they count too Genius!) We’re counting the slide outside your circles..How does it feel to be an arrogant King?
You better not lose to Carolina at home Coach Smith or you should kick rocks along with your staff…
By the way you need to win the next 8 of 11 games to get a wild card road game which will probably end up in an ugly blowout loss anyway! Its called a track record for 46 years and counting.. Good luck Sir….
A miracle to say the least…
37-16,37-16,37-16 and?….. a fluke? How about a Beatdown 48-21 LOSS in the biggest game in 6 years? What else is news in the Georgia Professional Sports World?

No more excuses for this coaching staff, mike smith must fire the van gordor and mularkey and get us some people in here who can get this team going.Our offense stinks and the defense has not gotten better, hell van gorder blitz are so easy to read,most teams dont prepare for them, they like madden blitz or something.

Um…..there were picks in that film? I was a bit distracted there.

Anybody note that Sidbury is tied for team lead in sacks. If he gets another this week, I say sit Abraham ’til well after the bye and get him fully healed. This could effect the entire rotation the rest of the year. Which would be a good thing.
Tell it like it is.

Look out! This team could get blown out of the Carolina game,i an’t kidding! this team is like a ship Stalled, and floating in the ocean with no directing.

Everyone needs to calm down. Nobody needs to be fired. This franchise has been consistently moving in the right direction since we hired Coach Smith and staff. Last year we had quite a few games in which we barely got the W – those games have gone the other way so far this year. We have the same talent, if not more – WE WILL BE FINE. Can’t be 13-3 every year people!

Widespread panic– yes thats true,but we could end up 3-13.

Team wins a division last year and after 5 games you are ready to fire the same coaching staff. You people are stupid. And yes I mean stupid and spoiled. You have know clue what you are talkin about. A spoiled society that thinks they know it all and are owed everything.

Widespread..thank you for your calm confidence…after all of the years when we were so inconsistent, and mostly simply bad…we are headed in the right direction! Julio was a great pick up and will pay dividends…albeit at the cost of depth through this draft. I do think the coaches have to step up. We seem to be getting out-schemed on both sides of the ball. AND, players have to step up. Matty has struggled. The o-line has been porous. White has had drops in key situations. Turner really needs to turn it UP. All of these things went our way last year and are not going our way now. BUT…there is no need to blow the team up. Coaches and players HAVE to STEP UP!

voices of excuses…..lol

The Falcons will be alright, I’m telling yawl they are about to win 8-9 straight. They will only lose 2 more games if that.

oh crap, she’s back…..this the computer equivalent of a nothing but eye candy, sideline reporter?
the only thing I’d tap in vegas with her stuff is her.
