    Just like last year, Atlanta owned the Packers. Go home and cry in your Cheeze Whiz!

    Oh, and the girls really like their new home and they thoroughly enjoyed watching the flogging of Green Bay last night.

      We got our butts beat bad. You were right on with your comment about the O-line, both starting Tackles were out, not good. It is way too early to be having injury problems. Congrats to the Falcons on a big win.

      I had on my Rodgers jersey, and I have to say, the Falcons fans were very classy. Lots of high fives and handshakes, and nice comments about the Pack and the Packer fans.

      The cheerleaders are even better in person. Prrrrrrrrr!

      The stadium is freaking amazing!

        Bennett runs a drag route and gets run into and it a pick route? Also last time I checked contact is allowed within one yard of scrimmage. But don't worry I'm sure the NFL will change that rule soon. GB was deprived of at least 20 pts, and not by the falcons.

          Bad calls happen. But, the one that stopped a likely Packer TD just before the half, which then became a Falcon TD, completely changed the game. It would have been 17-14 Falcons at half, with the Pack receiving, and they would have had the mo coming out of the locker room. That was a 14 point swing when it mattered most. Judging by the tenacity of the Pack on the home stretch, I think they could well have won minus that one call.

          The Falcons need to play 4 full quarters every game, even when they have a big lead. Does anybody remember 28-3 from only 3 games ago?

              Beasley out one month with hamstring tear

              Ouch:

              http://www.ajc.com/sports/football/r...uoPbKplLwMp9L/

              Report: Vic Beasley out a month with hamstring tear
              D. Orlando Ledbetter
              1:00 p.m Monday, Sept. 18, 2017 Atlanta Falcons

              Falcons defensive end/linebacker Vic Beasley has a slight hamstring tear and is expected to miss at least a month, according to WSB Channel 2’s Zach Klein citing a “NFL league source.”

              Beasley played 22 of 76 defensive snaps (29 percent) against the Packers.

              He left the game in the third quarter after suffering the injury and did not return.

                    Fines for their ignominy. What a predicted reversal there at the end. Another week of faulty refereeing in favor of the falcons to take it away from the comeback kid. Watch the replay he clearly crosses the line before the knee down.

                      You need a higher quality TV there buddy?. If it weren't clear and indisputable there's no way that one wouldn't have been upheld, esp. in Detroit.

                      But the two players kneeling,,,,sigh.

                        I listened to the game on radio today, (my somewhat lame attempt to protest the protests) so I have yet to see that touchdown play that got reversed. But I am assuming it was booth reviewed under very high scrutiny and thus rightfully changed to no TD. Groan and moan all you want about bad officiating, but I think I will just say that the Falcons are 3 and 0 baby!

                        Oh, here is a nice shot of the girls showing us their Falcon pride (and their belly buttons) after the win!

                          The worst was kneeling for the anthem in England. Then they standing for god save the queen!?!?

                          And then Ray Lewis does the double knees (after criticizing kaepernick) which was probably very similar to when he almost fell over in surprise after being found innocent of that murder and had to be held up.




                          That play was not very clear...but after running it back a few times it pretty evident the knees are NOT down. I think even buck will agree here.

                            I am really surprised the NFL did not call GOUT-U to get his take on this play. Clearly his Console TV and 40 year old Beta-Max tape machine are way better than the high tech equipment the NFL booth review team uses.

                            Here is what I agree on; the Falcons are 3-0 baby!

                              Just look at his knees. Thats all I'm going to say. Also that 10 second runoff rule is BS. If they didn't spent their sweet time reviewing an obvious TD, Stafford could have fired off another play.

                                Sorry man, but that picture you are touting as evidence was after his knee had already bounced off the turf.
