  • Falcons Schedule with game break downs

    ...courtesy of the Falcons...
    http://www.atlantafalcons.com/schedule/

    bottom line is:

    Wins against
    --------
    Eagles
    Seahawks
    Panthers x2
    Colts
    Vikes
    Jags
    Bucs
    Lions

    Losses to:
    -------------
    Bears
    Bucs
    GB
    NO x2
    Houston


    they beat Fluff teams... and lost to all the good ones. Lions are the only halfway decent team they beat...This tells me that this is a VERY winnable game.
    Matty Ice outside=bad news, our DE's + his slow wind up= bad news. Our speedy recievers +their secondary=bad news.
    Julio Jones and Turner are the only two that scare me, but if this becomes a shoot out, I'll take ELI over Ryan any day of he week and twice on Sunday.

    great post. this has been exactly what i've been saying.

    plus, they are a bad road team, and bad in the playoffs too. i honestly dont see this game being close after the 3rd quarter. we're gonna keep building momentum, which we'll need for either GB or SF.

      Left out the Titans, the only other winning team other than the Lions that Falcons beat. Odd thing is they were the #1 seed in NFC and didn't end up with a tough schedule.

      Gaints only beat 1 winning team, played 4(losses to NO, SF and GB) but there were more 8-8 teams than I can ever remember.

        We lost to Vince Young, Tavaris Jackson/Whitehurst, Rex Grossman twice, struggled against Miami, struggled against Arizona... we have no room to talk. Let's just play the game and build off that.

              and a breakdown of the giants schedule shows they too only beat 1 playoff team (N.E) as well.

              common oponents:

              both lost to saints (falcons twice)
              both lost to packers

              falcons beat seahawks - giants loss seahawks
              falcons beat eagles - giants split win/loss eagles

              falcons 4-4 on road, giants 4-4 at home

              falcons 2-3 outdoors

              so really nothing gained by looking the schedules. all fairly even.

              i see this game coming down to the turnover margin. who ever wins that battle wins the game.
              falcons +8, giants +7 so all very tight

                we beat buffalo when they were 4-1. beat ne, beat dallas twice with winning records, we beat GB but couldnt beat GB AND the refs, we've beaten teams when they were on winning streaks and had winning records who were playing for there lives. our schedule was 10x harder than atlanta's and we made the playoffs. god i wish we could play tampa twice in one season...ur fluff teams were easier than our fluff teams too.

                  except our schdeule was the hardest ranked schedule and urs was like the 22nd hardest schedule.

                  we;re battle tested without a doubt. i dont know if we can say that about atlanta no offense.

                    You're right. I expect us to win this game, but at least the Falcs beat all the garbage teams on their schedule.

I just don't think that we should be so ****y and pencil it in knowing how we tend to come out flat sometimes. Cruz catching short passes and breaking it open making TD's out of em are a big plus but can we count on that every week?

                        They are solid. They beat the teams that they should have beaten. And the Lions are not "fluff." And we lost to the 'hawks who they beat and the Eagles and Panthers were not exactly push-overs. I think the only winning team that we beat were the Pats, although we did almost beat the Pack and the 49ers (I still think we were the better team that game).

                        It's going to be tough, but I think that the D has finally come together. And I know that the running game has been better, but still not great. I still expect to win.

I still expect to win.[/quote]Exactly, since when has Detroit been a fluff team? Their QB just finished the season with over 5000 yards. Also, I'm curious to know how we would've stacked up against the Panthers had we played em twice this year? I believe Newton went like 19/23 (something like that) against Washington, the team we couldn't beat this year.

                            All in all, I'm like you and I'm expecting to win as well but I'll never take a playoff team lightly. Our D has definitely stepped up and I'm expecting a BIG performance out of our boys on the line this weekend.

                            I know ATL is gonna try to counter that with some short passes, slants, screens and a heavy dose of Tony G so I hope our linebackers are ready too.

                              Sometimes it's nice to have the rivals around.... you make a damn good point, and I'm happy to hear it.
                              Minor point though, the GB game was stolen from us by the Zebras, and the SF game would have been ours if not for Boley getting hurt. By no stretch of the imagination am I claiming this will be an easy win, but I think we can walk away with a victory barring any more bad luck with injuries. No blow out, just a win. 27-24 G-men, last minute drive by Eli to get us into FG range and a good kick by *GASP* Lawrence Tynes will have us all in the ER post game.
