Your team has experience in the playoffs but they're still young whereas Falcons have a good mix of young guys and veterans. You also have some new blood, particularly Wilson. The Packers took it to us on our turf in 2010 by means of elite qb play, we couldn't even make them punt once. You guys have an elite defense but this is a QB driven league and I have to give the edge to the Falcons in that regard. Plus you guys came out flat in the first quarter against the Skins so i'm definitely not expecting 60 minutes from your team coupled with the traveling issues. I also agree that public perception or talking heads won't determine the matter but our players definitely hear the disrespect. This is the quietest i've seen Flowery Branch all year, usually when it's quiet is when the Falcons put on their best showings".
there is an awful lot of wrong in this post....
1, our defense is not elite on the road, we're not counting on them to win us this game, more so keep us in it..
2. QB driven league..? have you seen RW's stats
3. if you're expecting our D to come out flat like they did last weekend, you're putting your hopes on a previous game that has no empact on this game what so ever.. they could come out flat again, then again the could come out and punch ATL in the face. that's this defense, never know what you're going to get week in week out.
no offense but this post is just based on hopes and dreams
#1 in PPG allowed isn't elite? I was talking in general. Russell Wilson is a game manager like most rookie QB's at this point in his career. There are a good number of QB's i'd take over him, plus he doesn't seem all that great passing from the pocket because of how short he is. Fact was your D came out flat in the first quarter no if ands or buts about it. I'm not expecting them to play for 60 minutes especially if their not elite on the road like you stated.
You sound just like the dead skins fans last week, same old song and dance! Somebody talking about the Hawks that doesn't have clue one about them.
Here's something to chew on:
