The game was terrible. It was the worst of the entire season. The Falcons failed in all aspects of the game. To single any one person out would take too long. The coaches had an awful gameplan and the Falcons just weren’t prepared. The defense couldn’t stop the Packers to save their life. The offense was conservative and predictable. All the things that had been festering throughout the year came pouring out like one atrocious, gushing dam burst.
The Bird Cage will obviously be back to talk some more about the game last night, but the simple truth is that the Falcons got whipped in all aspects of the game. This is just a setback for what should be a very bright future for this franchise. While no knee-jerk decisions will be made, some serious aspects need to be examined on this team. Coach Smith and both the coordinators were beyond awful last night.
The Green Bay Packers deserve all the credit in the world. They had a magnificent gameplan and executed it flawlessly.
The loss stings as bad as any since Coach Smith arrived. For all intents and purposes, the game was over by halftime. As an old coach used to say “the sun will rise tomorrow” and that’s about the only solace we can take right now. It’s not easy to see it right now, but this franchise has accomplished a ton in the last three years and very bright days lay ahead. It’s tough and painful, but fans have no reason to believe they won’t be in the mix for a long while now.
Respectful and fun football talk. Mudslinging and personal attacks will not be tolerated.

-Who’s the most to blame? We know it’ll take awhile.
-Serious reasons for concern or just one really awful game?
