I’m a falcon fan, I don’t feel bad for the falcons. They deserved a ass whooping… Now lets go handle business, nobody respects the falcons enough to lay down for them, so they have to go out there and make a statement against the giants. Rise up Atlanta

Wow with that performance , we should be able to go to 0-4 in the playoffs as long as we have Smitty and Matty Thaw running things . We’re just like the Dawgs- beneficiairies of a soft schedule and exposed when we have to play the big boys !

The best thing that can happen to the Birds is this weeks game against NYG. Quick turnaround to show they can make things right. If not, and we look the same as we did yesterday, well….ATL,we have a problem…

Somebody could go down to Nawlins and make a fortune starting up a company that sells “sized” brown kraft paper sacks.

Giants over Caints 52-27………….SPANKED……………!!!

One Caints writer said: “virtually eliminated from playoff contention.”

So…………..In other words,

for all practical purposes,

they are,

as good as, effectually, essentially, for all intents and purposes, fundamentally, give or take a little, in effect, in essence, practically,

………..eliminated from 2012 NFL Post Season participation.

Put a fork in it.

WE ARE THE MIGHTY MIGHTY FALCONS!!!

I am falcon football fan but with them continuing to do the same old thing will not get them over the hump. They need speed in the back field, they have two guys that runs like they might have a little sugar in their tank, walk lite in their loafers, gay. Davis could problay be a better QB than Ryan, he is mor mobile and probale more accurate. The entire secondary is border line worthless. Atlanta, has been lucky and it is about to run out, sad to say. I will continue to pull for the Flacons, but they will be eliminated in first round.
