When will the Falcons get some respect? Ok they flopped in the playoffs. They don't dominate games. But they are 10 and 1. That is not easily done in a league that any team could win any given Sunday. Maybe after they beat the Saints on Thursday but I doubt it. Everyone will pick against them all the way to the Bowl.
Dirty Birds to the Bowl!!!
First, the only tuff teams they've played this season have been the Saints and Bucs and the birds are 1 and 1. They may have the softest schedule in the NFL. They played the Broncos early in the season before the Broncos got it going and the scab Refs gave them that game.
Then, there is their playoff history, Matty Noodle led them to what, 2 points in their last playoff game. Got murdered at home the year before in the playoffs.
And, no one likes a big mouth like Roddy White! Telling the Press that they have the pedigree to go 16 - 0 along with Gonzalez whinning about not getting any respect, can you spell; L O S E R S ?
I was there in 1978 when the rivalry began with the Batkowski Hail Mary to win on the last play and the Grover Klemmer game when the Ref Klemmer made a bad call giving the Dirty Birds the ball at the one on a Pass Interference call with 20 seconds left! We've been in the same freakin Division since 1970 when the Saints were moved out of the Century Division and into the NFC West.
The irony is that the player supposedly interfered with, Falcons WR Billy Rykman, and I currently work together and are friends!
Been with the Birds since the Bartkowski days I can remember the Hail Mary. The Klemmer game must have been before my time. There's not an easy schedule in the NFL especially in the NFC south. I guess these last five weeks will tell the tail, starting on Thursday night. I agree Matt could have a stronger arm but I'll take it. The best we have had in along time. We need a running game. Michael Turner is done in my opinion he's lost some steps.
The streak ends Thursday night.:p
The Hail Mary and Grover Klemmer game were both during the 78 season. I think the Falcons were still playing at Fulton Co Stadium when Ref Grover Klemmer threw a flag for Pass Interference on the last play of the game. It was a 40 yard penalty giving the birds the ball on the one yard line and the win!
