Falcons Gripe Fest: OPEN THREAD

Look Charlie’s being the better man today. Put it in perspective, regroup, and move on. I get that, and appreciate his maturity. He’s right, and I’m all for moving on -but we need a minute to grieve. Here’s your opportunity.

They might have given up 33 points in the last quarter, (HOW DOES A TEAM DO THAT) but the Falcons won the popular vote. Nazi a-hole Richard Spencer claimed the Patriots’ improbable win was a victory for “White America,” and while I disagree with my former State Senator about a lot of things, I think Jason Carter spoke for all of us with his response.

Well said, Jason. The Patriots beat the better team. (H/t to the team at the AJC’s Morning Jolt for catching Carter’s comment.)

Let it all out, people.

This hurts so bad because for 3 1/2 quarters I was sure the Falcons had won and then…..

This is a young team and will get better as time goes on. We have a two year window to get back and get revenge.

Everything I know of complaining about the Falcons, I learned from my Grandpa. He’s been doing it since 1966 so his ability exceeds most others’. My lessons started when I was about 7. It was a season or two after Tony Casillas was drafted and I heard him say some thing like, “Tony Casillas! (said as much like profanity as one could) He ain’t done nothin’ but whine since he got here!” How many times have I heard him holler something about the Falcons having a lead and “p*ssing away the ballgame”? He refused to come to our family gathering… Read more »

This is a family blog, so I can’t say what I really want to say.

It’s a heartbreaking loss and we’re disappointed in the outcome. The Patriots won in spite of Tom Brady’s mediocre performance throughout the game. We’re still proud of our Falcons and standing up to the challenge. We’ll be back.

I’m walking around with an empty, hollow feeling. I don’t even feel like fighting with B, CC or Drew. I define THAT particular condition as “clinical…” LOL!
Regarding the game, no real words. Is this city “snake bit?” Beginning with our Braves, we seem terminally unable to close the deal. To say nothing of the Hawks. To quote the late, great Royal Marshall, “Just Damn…” At least the sports world got to experience Federer.

Fire the coach now. Get a new QB.
Seriously. That was a disgrace.

It doesn’t help my depression when I realize that historically crap teams like Tampa Bay and New Orleans finally won a Super Bowl. God!

Well, in about 25 years, when the Falcons “ask” (or is it “demand”?) another new stadium—you know how outdated those big palaces get!—the answer should be “no” unless they win at least one Super Bowl. And that is what the answer should have been a few years ago when Arthur asked for a new palace. Back around 1990, then-Falcons owner Rankin Smith (some said he was the “Jed Clampett” of a team owner) of course was demanding a new stadium (which of course he got with the Georgia Dome), but the late Lewis Grizzard had a line something akin to… Read more »

Take it from someone who has followed the Braves, Falcons, Hawks and Bulldogs for decades, this is normal. They build us up, make it seem like a championship is in the bag, then rip our hearts out with rusted garden shears. On the bright side…Atlanta natives like myself who have endured 5 decades of heartbreak and disappointment know this to be absolutely true; Adversity builds character. We have years of practice with Lucy yanking the ball out from under us thus we know how to bounce back. And we will because that is what Atlanta fans do. We live by… Read more »
