I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a bewildering game.

• Atlanta’s poor run offense more than doubles their per game average against our great run D. Yeah right.

• Atlanta’s historically poor pass rush against a great line, and they get to Brees 6 times. Yeah right.

• No Trufant and their poor pass defense somehow plays their best game all year. Yeah right.

Then, of course, there’s the refs and the near 2/1 penalty ratio.

And the team was so unenthusiastic and listless, like they knew they were supposed to lose. No fire or real concern to be found. The Falcons didn’t even look like a great team. They looked like their usual poor selves all day, they just looked like they were playing against tackling dummies.

That's what a flat " don't do your job " effort looks like. Takes all 11 on the field to make it work, especially in a divisional game. Ryan can pick you apart if you don't get pressure on him. Add to the fact that the refs were extra hard on us today on 3rd downs. That's why they call it a trap game . .

Not tampering. Just what happens in the NFL when you don't show up to play, come out flat, have a bad gameplan or are overconfident.
exactly. Loss falls on us period. We played poor, undisciplined and uninspired football. Hopefully it will help them wake up. It was going to happen at some point. Better now so we can get refocused instead of later in the season.

It Reeked of out coached, and out played. Plain and simple. This weeks practice session will be rough and deservedly so. Know one had a good game except Harris on his returns when he had a chance.

Davis had a good game.

Atlanta wanted it more. End of story.
Exactly this.

Atlanta came to play, we didn't.

I'm not concerned going further. Let's not act Atlanta is a cake walk, they can put up points their defense has just been terrible. Their D came to play today. We didn't.

It sucks to lose to a 1-7 team but this was their Super Bowl. This will not happen in Atlanta, we'll be ready and not thinking about a wedding.

Did anyone else read the memo Charles Davis got telling him to spend 95% of the game talking about the 1-7 team? Must have been one.
