idk. SJ39 was a full time back getting 35 carries/game. hes barely put work in and now hes injured. He barely had contact on that TD. Makes no sense.
Falcon Fans Stand Up!

The Falcons have signed LB Jamar Chaney & LB Omar Gaither. They have also signed FB Patrick DiMarco to the active roster and signed LB Chase Thomas to the practice squad.
Chaney, 6-0, 242 pounds, was originally selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round (220th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State. He played in 44 games with 23 starts over three seasons with the Eagles and recorded 161 tackles (124 solo) with 11 passes defensed, three interceptions, one sack, and one forced fumble.
Gaither, 6-2, 235 pounds, was originally selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fifth round (168th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Tennessee. He spent five seasons in Philadelphia before signing with the Carolina Panthers in 2011 and the Oakland Raiders in 2012. Gaither has totaled 413 tackles (264 solo) with 25 passes defensed, six sacks, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble in seven NFL seasons. In 2012, Gaither played in seven games for the Raiders with four starts and totaled 20 tackles (10 solo).
DiMarco, 6-1, 197 pounds, was originally signed by the San Diego Chargers as a college free agent out of South Carolina following the 2011 NFL Draft. He played in five games with four starts at fullback as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012.
Thomas, 6-3, 241 pounds, was originally signed by the New Orleans Saints as a college free agent out of Stanford following the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent time in training camp with the Saints and Oakland Raiders. Thomas recorded 71 tackles (43 solo) with 14.5 tackles for loss as a fifth-year senior for the Cardinal.

I'm disappointed in that loss. We played well. No place to really put fault. Why the coach doesnt call a time out with 1:50 remaining is beyond me. We were competitive and lost a road game. But we should have won again and let it slip though our fingers in the 3rd qt. 3rd quarters scare me. We should just put teams away and we let them crawl back into it.
All I can do is hope that opening up at 1-2 lights a fire in this teams ass and they dont feel comfortable like they did at 8-0 last year.
What lacks is aggression and urgency. I thought Steven Jackson would bring that to this club. And he still may...but not when hes on the sidelines. Losing both Spoon and Kroy killed us. All Miami's passes were in the middle against our replacement LBs.

playing the pats next week
could very easily fall to 1-3

Injuries+bad coaching+under achieving = 1-3 start.
Matty Ice, Julio, Tong G, Rody, etc have been great. But we lack the ability to punch it in the end zone.
We haven't been blown out and embarrassed though. We lost 3 games to undefeated teams by a TD or less.
We've made critical mistakes. But things happen.
Many of our problems will be rectified with the return of Steven Jackson.
Offensive options, ball control, time of possession and game tempo can fix many of our deficiencies.

i think even more so then S. Jax, having Roddy White 100% will not only give Matt his REAL security blanket back (people say Tony G, but I say it's Roddy), but will open up the field for everybody else.
I'd love to see Roddy take another crack at Talib 1v1 when fully healthy. I bet that last play would go very different.
1-3 [expletive]ing stinks, but we can still turn the season around. Hopefully our week 6 bye will allow our weapons to get healthy enough to bring us back to .500 against the Bucs on week 7.

Those [expletive]ing birds betteer not pack it in. I have SJax in one of my money leagues and since Stevan Ridley evidently slept with Belichick's wife, I'm going to need Jackson back asap to start clawing my way back into things.

Y'all have had a year & season like the Lakers last year. So full of promise & potential coming in. Likely championship contenders, but all gone to waste mostly by way of injuries. Extremely unfortunate luck.
I don't see the similarities.
Lakers failed because of bad coaching and once MDA was hired..."promise" and "potential" ceased to exist.
Falcons still have time to turn it around...make a trade to help ease the loss of Julio Jones, get some players healthy, and make some coaching adjustments.

they just look so vanilla on both sides of the ball

We still have time because the NFC as a whole has weak records. Thank goodness the Saints lost last night in the last 2 mins so 4 games is possible to win the division. Especially because we play them 1x at home. But more likely were only 2 games out of the wild card. But with Julio Jones out for the season....I realize its much less probable. At the least I'm hoping we pull out a winning season. We've never had a losing record with Matty Ice.
