Game Day!! Shanny’s Atlanta Redux

Kyle Shanahan’s last few minutes as a member of the Atlanta Falcons couldn’t have been more brutal. His team blew a 25 point 2nd half lead due to terrible clock management and his abandoning the run despite having a great running game. The Falcons dominated 3 quarters and had a 28-9 lead going in to the 4th quarter.

After the Falcons scored their last TD halfway through the 3rd, Brady led the Pats on a 6 minute TD drive, a 5:30 TD drive, a 2:30 TD drive, and a 3 minute TD drive to tie the game. Atlanta’s best drive actually reached the Pats 26, but the pass play that got them there was called back on a hold, and it pushed Atl out of FG range.

Shanny’s offense had 3 possessions in the 4th quarter, a 3rd and 1 sack for a 12 yard loss, a holding penalty to kill another drive, and the 3rd time, there was 56 seconds left, and they were at their own 11. And they never saw the ball in OT, so there you go. Not Shanny’s best moments, but Atlanta’s defense couldn’t stop a thing and they faded badly in the end. Shanny bears some of the brunt of the horrific loss., but the DC bears more of it.

Anyhow, this game is about us and the playoffs. Seeing as we have Matt Ryan and Jared Goff these next couple games, this is not exactly a great time to be down two more DBs. But Jaquiski Tartt and K’Waun Williams are both out for this game. D Jones is outwith the dreaded high ankle sprain, and as we know, Sherman is out as well.

Hate to say it, but we might be in for another track meet. 37-27 or something like that.

    We also played the AFC north and won 3 games in 81 losing only to Cleveland. This year we won 3 games losing only to Baltimore. Sorta close anyway.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Cleveland IS Baltimore!!!

  4. unca_chuck says:

    And Flying V, it isn’t an analogy, it’s a comparison you dumb-fuck.

    Now go create your 1,000,000,000,001 new email addy so you can post another deletable piece of shit. Hyuk!!!!!

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Like clock work. Or cock work in your case, skippy. Go back to bending over for Spitblood.

  6. NJ49er says:

    Einhorn and Finkle…
    Finkle and Einhorn…

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Heh! Here we go. Can’t overlook these guys. They are a pretty potent offense.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Nice play by Harris there,

  9. Irish Kevin says:

    That was not a good start

  10. unca_chuck says:

    D is getting in there at least.

  11. alleykat69 says:

    Good stop on Falcons drive.Time to get their shit together on this possession.

  12. Grumpy Guy says:

    Getting the running game going…

  13. Grumpy Guy says:

    Nice drive. Lots of rest for the defense.

  14. alleykat69 says:

    21 plays 88 yards longest drive in plays this year!
    That’s the way to rest your D!!

  15. alleykat69 says:

    What a Pancaking block by Kittle on that DB on the TD!!

  16. alleykat69 says:

    Shit! Maybe the Defense had to much rest??

  17. Irish Kevin says:

    Giving it your all for 3 tough games and injuries to the D, should have expected a slow start

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Bosa doubled,and no one else is getting close. Moseley needs help on Jones.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Looking bad. Need to get rolling here.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Blocking is awful.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    It got better . . .

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy G not looking sharp.

  23. Smyle Shanahan says:

    There’s just something about posting here that really floats my boat. Me and my mom watch while fingering each other.

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. 10 men of the field. Illegal formation!

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. The O is out of sorts. No passes to the WRs. Blocking sucks.

  26. alleykat69 says:

    Lots of teams out of it lay down like dogs, unfortunately Falcons aren’t one of them 😫

  27. Grumpy Guy says:

    Atlanta making a lot of dumb mistakes. Good thing because we’re definitely not quite hitting on all cylinders, except for Kittle and Mostert.

  28. Grumpy Guy says:

    Always dangerous to let a flawed team hang around till the end. They might get hot or lucky. This would be a good time for along TD drive.

  29. Grumpy Guy says:

    Same old Sorry Ass Rams getting crushed by the Cowgirls. We’ll be clinching a playoff spot. Need to keep winning to get the bye though.

    Hopefully the Rams bring their Sorriest Ass game with them next week.

  30. Grumpy Guy says:

    Kittle is a fucking One Man Wrecking Crew.

  31. Grumpy Guy says:

    Fuck. Fumble.

  32. alleykat69 says:

    Easy pick,and they screw that up as well. Really sloppy game with a team they should easily handle!!

  33. Grumpy Guy says:

    Deebo with the terrible drop, but Bourne gets the first down.

  34. Grumpy Guy says:

    Still letting Ryan hang in there. Someone needs to make a play here or we are going to lose.

  35. Grumpy Guy says:

    AND THERE IT IS!!!!!

  36. alleykat69 says:

    Thanks for the Gift 🎁 Atlanta!
    Need to cash in for a TD!!

  37. alleykat69 says:

    You deserved that TD!!

  38. Grumpy Guy says:

    And Gould blows the PAT. Nothing is easy with this team.

  39. Grumpy Guy says:

    No one in our secondary has really been able to cover Julio all day. Really missing Dickhead Sherman. I expect Ryan to go to him often from here on out. Saleh needs to dial something up.

  40. Grumpy Guy says:

    Five minutes. Need a long drive here. Capped by a score.

  41. Grumpy Guy says:

    Next big play or big mistake probably decides it.

  42. Grumpy Guy says:

    Big third down play. Don’t want to put this on Gould and the defense.

  43. alleykat69 says:

    Damm they need 6 on this drive!

  44. Grumpy Guy says:

    I *really* did not want to see Ryan get a chance to win this game.

  45. Grumpy Guy says:

    Goddamn it. Moved them right down there.

  46. Grumpy Guy says:

    Okay. THIS game is going to give me a Stroke.

  47. Grumpy Guy says:


  48. Grumpy Guy says:

    And a heart attack. And Cancer. :/

  49. Grumpy Guy says:

    That last play looks like a touchdown.

  50. Grumpy Guy says:


  51. Grumpy Guy says:

    Horrible way to lose… but it was coming all game long.

  52. Grumpy Guy says:

    Absence of Sherman was your ballgame.

  53. Irish Kevin says:

    How the fuck do we lose to the Falcons

  54. Irish Kevin says:

    Kyle was not as creative as he has been with the offense. They should have been able to score

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Bad shit all around. The D looked pretty flat all day, but the O was atrocious. The fumble changed it all. Might as well rest the starters next 2 games.

  56. unca_chuck says:

    Once again though, if we tie Seattle by beating them last game, what does that do?

  57. unca_chuck says:

    Well, we win out we still get the #1 seed.

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Stupid loss but it really doesn’t hurt us. In that if we went up to Seattle with a one game lead and lost, we’d be the 5 seed anyway. I think.

  59. Winder says:

    Atlanta has been a good team for a few weeks now. we were just missing too many people to beat a good team. We just gotta get healthy.

  60. unca_chuck says:

    Lots of blame to go around. Drops, fumbles, penalties, Jones getting open at will, and terrible line blocking. Richburg was missed badly.

  61. NJ49er says:

    Shanny vs Quinn had trouble written all over it coming in.
    And, nothing to lose in terms of playing spoiler.

    Admittedly I had this game as a trap but, didn’t expect a loss TBH.
    Thought for sure it wouldn’t be a cake walk or, to even cover the spread.
    Offense was flat. Defense was exposed when the front 4 don’t get home.
    No excuses at this point. If this doesn’t serve as a wake up call for the stretch run, nothing will.

  62. Winder says:

    Fuck, Madbum’s going to the D backs. I figured he was on his way out but I still hate losing him.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, we weren’t gonna give out a 5 year deal to Bummie. Oh well. He’s gonna give up a lot of home runs in that park.

  64. Winder says:

    The Saints picked up Jenkins today that should make em a lot tougher in the defensive backfield.

  65. Winder says:

    KC claimed Suggs, the Saints, Seahawks, and Niners all put claims in on him too.
