THE FALCONS OFFENSE HAS shut down. The 49ers held Falcons running back Devonta Freeman in check. Freeman entered the game leading the league in rushing, but was held to 12 yards on 12 carries. The Falcons averaged 126 yards rushing per game, which ranked eighth in the league, before facing San Francisco… RIDICULOUS!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers bounced back after blowing a 17-point lead, getting a 31-yard field goal from Connor Barth in overtime to beat the mistake-prone Falcon 23-20 on Sunday. But as a fan I am disappointed! You should be too! This was another bad game for the Falcons who moved the ball up and down the field on the Bucs, but had nothing to show for it most of the day because they played undisciplined football! Matt was bad in the 1st half / Great in the 2nd. The Falcons sustained some injuries, but I will not make excuses for a team we should have beat. Jameis Winston throw for only 177 yards and a TD. But in Overtime “Dukesism” ‘when it matters most’ he played like a guy that had been in this situation numerous times. The story of this game was turnovers. The Falcons turned the ball over 4 times and had a hard time getting out of their own way. They kept themselves from putting points on the board and keeping the Bucs offense off the field with 11 penalties for 124 yards. Terrible!
Here we are again. Same story, different year. We came into the beginning of the season with tons of hype and a stacked, talented team. Another signing class full of stars and an off-season with all the right things seeming to happen. And yet again, we dare to hope… Is this FINALLY our year???
No one will disagree that last year was an abomination when it came to the NFC South. The best team, the Carolina Panthers, went a terrible 7-8-1, including 2 victories against the D-II Buccaneers (Good luck with that Dirk Koetter!!) and a decent win against the Cardinals in the Wild Card Playoffs. That Carolina post-season […]
For those that have grown up in Atlanta, the long-running joke is that being an Atlanta sports fan is the equivalent of being a masochist. Just when you think it’s finally our time, they let you down again. We still have the 1995 World Series (which was 20(!!!!) years ago) and now the Hawks with […]
I have often been asked if Mike Bell is a “Hot head”… is he a “Loose Cannon” people ask me. The answer is no. He is very passionate about his job and, like me, loves what he does everyday and Mike has a desire to be the best he can be and that is what […]
Yesterday was Father’s Day and I still remember my first Father’s Day, looking into the eyes of my daughter and wondering how her life might turn out and would I be able to play the same role as my parents did in raising me and allowing me to believe that I could do and be […]
Sooooooo are you going to pay the $100 for the pay per view this Saturday? It’s being called the Fight of the Century. The biggest boxing match of all time. By the way get the High Definition… to quote Jamies Winston, “If you gone do it, then do it big then!” The Saturday night bout […]
It’s no secret that diversity is a new priority in the TV world. And Empire is, in some ways singlehandedly, changing the calculus behind network television—helping to convince executives that diversity is really worth pushing for. The numbers are hard to argue with the ratings for Empire that have jumped every week, according to Nielsen. […]
The time comes for all great players, the time where they are in the twilight of their career. The end is near and teams have to make those tough decisions to move on without players that have been the cornerstone of the their franchise. This week we learned that the greatest offensive player Texans history […]
