Who the hell makes those types of calls on 4th and short? The run game is so predictable, 99% of the time ANYONE can guess they are going to run, it’s so obvious. They never do play action so it’s easy for the defense to read… my goodness, until we get a new OC and a revamped O-Line, I’m done with the Falcons

No, repeat No offensive line! Today was embarrassing to say the least!
Dunte Robinson is a joke…..listening to fat boy Berman diss the Birds on ESPN.
Oh well….we could be Tampa, Jacksonville or Cleveland!
One last thing…wouldn’t it be nice to have the Saints offensive line?

Atlanta sport teams have become a laughing stock. I really believe that AB should look at moving this team to another city. There seems to be no one who cares about the fans, hell even the AJC is reporting more about Beyonces baby than calling out that lack luster performace we saw today. Thats why I believe that nothing will change this off season.

The falcons def. needs revamped. the trade for daunta R. ,1 rd pick p jerry .and owens needs to be released they have been a bust. thinking on the free agent signing of edwards ? because if his knee was so bad to cause him to be out alot of games why sign him? next year draft we need olinemen 1st then d linemen next secondary people. the free agents that the falcons will have should be kept . some of the coaching staff may looked at also to be replaced.

Enough is enough. This is beyond embarrassing !! Falcons have a serious OC problem …
We never seem to run a play at crunch time that the entire civilized world isn’t expecting.
The Giants should have been knocked out cold by the end of the 3rd quarter. Agreed,
the “learning from mistakes” line is really getting old. The OC hasn’t learned anything !!

Mike Mularkey and Brian Van Gorder displayed on national TV why they should never be in the booth or on the sideline for this franchise again. I agree with the 4th down decision to go for it, that is playing to win. However, an empty backfield? Did anyone besides me see Turner shaking his head after the play? The defense played with passion and aggression in the first quarter and a half and then BVG decides to go soft zone again. UNBELIEVEABLE.

What time does the “spin session” end on the D3 blog? They’ve been trying to wash the stench off the debacle since about the third quarter yesterday!!!

I been saying it for three years now. Ryan and VanGorder are the weak links. I hope I don’t have ever have to say it again. If I do then fire Smith too.
