I wonder what Mark Bradley thinks of his 12-4 projection now, after watching the Falcons look pretty pathetic against what is probably the NFL’s weakest team last night (I lost count of their dropped passes after seven). Biggest concerns for our Birds: still no running game—still can’t pick up 3rd and 1 or 2 yards.

Looking at their first series ………………looks like same ol’ Falcons to me.

1-10-ATL 15
(12:29) 33-M.Turner right end to ATL 18 for 3 yards (55-K.Misi).
2-7-ATL 18
(11:51) 33-M.Turner up the middle to ATL 22 for 4 yards (53-A.Spitler).
3-3-ATL 22
(11:14) (Shotgun) 2-M.Ryan pass incomplete short right to 11-J.Jones (59-G.Guyton). PENALTY on MIA-26-T.Johnson, Defensive Holding, 5 yards, enforced at ATL 22 – No Play.

Unfortunately from what I saw last night isn’t going to get the Birds from being a formidable opponent to play on a level with the NFL elite. But, it’s still preseason, an exhibition. Who knows how they might plan to light it up at KC!! I doubt we’ve seen everything.

Lol our game plans arent goin to be unleashed until game 1. We basically had a four man rush and the line did alright especially BeerMan and Abraham. We hhave an elite secondary and cant qait to see how theyll be utilized. Roddy white is a monster.

Same ol Flacons

Wow Falcons have alot of people who just bash consistently! If they win, thy did not win by 40, and everyone says how bad the other team was. They lose and the other teams third string was superior….lol; what a group of Falcon haters. Just do your thing Falcons and keep putting up the things we real fans need to see! Nice game Ryan, lets go birds!

I saw two glaring problems tonight. First, DOL did not have a bow tie on which is destructive to the image., And the second is DOL need to try to sport some dreds. We need to get that corrected before next week.

It’s Preseason. No team should be on the field playing at 100% speed. Did some of you not read the article on Julio Jones last week?
