Now I have been nice during my time here and even defended you guys on our forums. This is getting silly though. I'm all for being a die hard fan of the team you love but lets not start throwing out this kind of junk.
Let's see this "bad competition" Atlanta has faced all year:
Jamaal Charles (#4 NFL Rushing Yards)
DeAngelo Williams (x2)
Johnathan Stewart (x2)
Alfred Morris (#2 NFL Rushing Yards)
Chris Ivory (x2)
Mark Ingram (x2)
Pierre Thomas (x2)
Doug Martin (#5 NFL Rushing Yards) (x2)
That list holds 3 of the top 5 rushers in the league. Plus several recent pro bowlers. Don't act as if we had a bunch of no names running wild on us. Seattle is also not the only team we play that has a scrambling QB /good RB combo. RG3/Morris (We owned that game despite the score), Newton/Stewart/Williams, Vick/McCoy, Freeman/Martin. RG3 had what 7 yards before we sent him out of the game. Vick didn't fare much better. Newton however did have some success against us. His second game stats against us were padded with one huge run of 72 yards.
I like seeing a confident fan base but we didn't lock up the # 1 seed or secure 13 wins by looking pretty. Games aren't decided on paper either.
