The Falcons finally lose. It was bound to happen at some point. Im still hungover and angry from the Superbowl loss. I attended the Lions vs Falcons game at Ford Field last week. Being a falcons fan and a lions fan I just wanted a clean game. I didnt get that. The falcons showed me they still cant get pressure on the quarterback in the 4th quarter and the Lions suffered heartbreak. Fortunately for the Lions, they recovered with a strong defensive stand. The Falcons on the other hand still are showing lots of leaks. Matt Ryan is looking very average with lots of bad passes. I realize we lost our two best receivers but it shouldnt matter. And that last drive was disheartening. 3rd and one with about 54 seconds left, why not run it? I realize we have no timeouts left but then we have 4 throws after that. Sure the referees missed a pass interference call on 4th down but we need to make changes. Our offensive line doesnt get any push and our defensive line gets tired. Its a recipe for distaster. Through in the patriots loss two the Panthers ( a double whammy) and now the Falcons are only one game up.
The good thing is the Georgia Bulldogs looked impressive and are setting up an epic SEC championship showdown. The Bulldogs have their path layed down for them and their path is clear, even maybe with a hiccup along the way. Texas looked impressive as well and Michigan, although off this week, also has their path laid out for them.
