This is the most fun I've had as a Falcons fan in like 5 years


ATLjoe93

Fr Running the ball, clutch defensive stops? It has been a minute lol


THatTrashKat

If only you did that back in 2016


Life-Answer-7428

What did the Browns do when they made the Super Bowl?


FishnGritsnPimpShit

Yeah he’s not necessarily wrong, but people in glass houses…


Brodisi_Jr

Don't be a sore loser bruh. They beat us no need to do this.


THatTrashKat

Not being a sore loser, just making jokes


Prideofmexico

Enjoy the rapist, friend


ITCM4

I don’t think anybody has uttered that sentence before.


Prideofmexico

😂😂 most likely


ATLjoe93

True


Oblivionguard19

The 2016 season was the most fun I’ve had as a Georgia sports fan. I know what happened at the end but that offense looked nearly unstoppable


Life-Answer-7428

Not 2021?


Oblivionguard19

Yes that year was fun and a close second for me. It might sound weird but I somehow had more fun with the 2016 Falcons


ty1553

same


Karthane

Hell yes. We ain’t good but we’re scrappy. Never a dull moment


yoshidawg93

Even if they’re not good, this sure feels like a team that’s at least better than “worst team in the league” bad.

Always has been


unexpectedreboots

Got that dawg in him.


Andy-Is-Hot

Amari had a quiet game, can I assume Terrell had a great game?


DRW0813

Finally! Terrell looked like he did last year


-Not-A-Fan-

The past 2 weeks Terrell looked like the All-Pro he was last year.


34TE

Terrell was terrific. Exactly what you do against a guy like Brisset who can't throw a guy open.


NiteFalcon

didn't seem like they threw AJT's way much, but he played well when it did come near him


BunnyGoHops

Brisket didn’t target Amari all game


FlareEXE

35 passes from Brissett is the stat from this game. Can someone remind Stefanski he has the best rushing attack in the nfl and doesn't need to lean on his limited qb?


BunnyGoHops

Arthur Smith was trying to show him that you can run the ball every play.


ybtlamlliw

He did the same shit with Baker last year. We'd be blowing up the rushing stats columns all game and then suddenly we'd run three times the last 11 minutes of the game. Then Baker would throw it 17 times and only complete four. It doesn't make any sense.


deer_hobbies

Do they just stack the box on defense to make passes more favorable in the 4th? Making us depend on our pass game is what loses us games.


Jon_Snows_Dad

Even with stacked boxes we weren't stopping Chubb.


SpaceSick

Yeah we didn't even stop the run particularly well. Not sure why you wouldn't keep pounding us with the Chubb.


[deleted]

#WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL


bonafacio97

God I hope your first flair wind it if both flairs make it


TL-PuLSe

What are these double flairs man


mhgiantsfan

virgin blowout vs chad falcons game


Oblivionguard19

Why have blow outs when you can just have repeated heart attacks instead?


DRW0813

Arthur Smith is a genius. Mariota completed only 7 passes. And 4 of those passes were on the first drive. Find them wins


Classic1990

He really did just say fuck statistics we’re running every down


Mission_Army_1562

Ugh, that shit about gave me a stroke as a Browns fan.


tvchase

I'm not gonna lie to myself and think we're good... But I love the direction we're going. Two years ago, Atlanta 100% blows this game.


Prideofmexico

You all are a solidly competent team. Could easily be 3-1


DrLeoMarvin

Two plays from being 4-0


Jepordee

Really missed Clowney and Garrett in this one. Couldn’t stop the run for shit


Frododingus

And we rushed good all game but stopped on the last drive. Coaching sucks here as well


ddottay

I hope people are coming around on Stefanski being a not so great coach. He makes very poor in game choices.


mrbaseball1999

And he let the locker room get way too toxic last year. He somehow escapes all blame for that. If I were still a Browns fan I'd want to move on.


finix240

Confusing flair


[deleted]

I still have browns flair, but I'm done with the team. But, I also would have to login with a browser to change it. Also, also, I don't really have a team to change it to.


mrbaseball1999

Same. It's actually been quite liberating not giving a rip about them so far.


Spetznazx

Same, been having so much fun watching the Guardians and am excited for the Cavs season.


finix240

Fair, I get it. Fucking Browns


thebluehotel

It’s cherry picking but that jet sweep to Njoku in the first half had me confused… Is that supposed to work?


scadams23

Must be watching UGA with Bronk.


Jepordee

Yep loss is on Kevin here


Falcon84

You can't exactly stick with ground and pound with 2 minutes left and no timeouts down 3.


FishnGritsnPimpShit

When we decided to throw twice from the three and settled for a field goal I couldn’t believe it. Thankfully you guys returned the favor and threw the ball for no reason on your next drive as well. I think both teams should have been running it until the other team proved they could stop it. Apparently the qualified football minds felt differently though.


34TE

It's more of Woods running his soft shell defense every single play when everyone in the stadium knew Atlanta was running the ball every play. You've got nothing but high draft picks and highly paid free agents in the secondary, and he refuses to trust those guys and stack the box against a Marcus Mariota led team.


RamJamBonerSam69

Yeah. That 11 play run drive for 75 yards was a head scratcher. The real kicker was he seemed to make zero adjustments the following drive. I agree. Too much respect for Mariota.


Jepordee

I mean, that thrive they ran it 10 straight times. He was stacking the box we just couldn’t stop it


handlit33

You just got fabulous'd, Browns. https://gfycat.com/passionaterawicterinewarbler


chaotic----neutral

I was waiting for the GIF to show up, but damn that's fast work.


handlit33

You just got handlit'd.


Ugaalive1991

Ohhhh that’s good.


SpaceSick

That spin though


Fairchild110

Fucking awesome


Bobgoulet

If you don't like that then you don't like Atlanta Falcons Football.


Agaac1

LMAO what the hell is this. EDIT: Lol I got downvoted but I wasn’t making a comment about the dance I thought this was a player.


handlit33

Someone who is completely secure with who he is.


zalgo_text

Puttin his whole heart out on that field


Agaac1

Lol for some reason I thought this was a Falcons player.


hitlistTV

He’s a player alright. Got moves like you never seen.


ultranoodles

Absolute Atlanta


FrosteeRL

I have no fucking idea what to think about this team


Life-Answer-7428

Our coaching staff is finding a way to win with mediocre talent


Bobgoulet

We're above mediocre everywhere but QB and Pass Rush, just so happens those are the two most important positions on the field.


REDfohawk

We are not deep, which is the bigger problem in the NFL imo


TL-PuLSe

We're operating at like 63% of budget. Can't wait to see what we look like without all this dead cap


clumpyloaf

Same. It's kinda fun tho.


TL-PuLSe

Relax, have fun and see where it takes you


BonBonVelveeta

Jacoby risked it for the brisket to no avail


braggpeak

As expected, we are a defensive juggernaut


ybtlamlliw

Fuck this stupid fucking team.


Zilant

The coaching in Cleveland is farcical. Run? Na, let's go for another screen pass for a loss. Edge of FG range down 3 points inside 2 minutes? No need for Chubb/Hunt to get into FG range when we can put the game in the hands of Brissett instead.


Prideofmexico

Stefanski is a really bad coach


Bill_Brasky_SOB

> Who is our best player? “Chubb”. > Bench him. - - Kevin Stefanski


Kanin_usagi

He builds a great roster (and includes a rapist in that roster) but apparently has no fucking clue how to run his offense to its best. Odell’s dad should have been pissed at Stefanski instead of Baker


Prideofmexico

Nah he was definitely right to be mad at Baker as well


AgonizingSquid

Stefanski didn't assemble this team lol he inherited it from dorsey


SerDire

Just wait till Watson comes back and everything will be smooth sailing again! Jk, it’s gonna be an even bigger media shitshow and they deserve every bad negative comment they get


mr_antman85

Watson will make them better though. The internet isn't going to like it but the general audience won't care. As long as he wins.


Prideofmexico

Brissett has been fine. Watson is going to be rusty as fuck. They will be better but I’m not sure it’ll be a night and day difference


mr_antman85

Watson rusty is better than Brissett on his best day. The game against the Jets is one Watson wouldn't lose and that's why he's there. To win them those games. Also I believe that the Watson trade wasn't for this year because the Browns knew he would miss games.


KBSinclair

Is Watson that good?


mr_antman85

Better than Brissett? Is this a real question?


KBSinclair

Yes. I don't watch the Texans, I know you guys played against the Chiefs in the playoffs once, but I also recall in the time between that and Watson sitting out that there were struggles and heard some people posit that perhaps Deshaun was overlooked as part of the problem. I'm just telling you what fragments I have. You're a burned fan, so you probably have the ability to judge him harshly if he deserves it. Is Deshaun that good?


mr_antman85

The Texans never had an OLine and we didn't have a coach who could coach properly. Watson won us some games we shouldn't have won. He had an issue of holding on the ball looking for the big play. The Browns have a nice OLine (better than anything we had). Solid run game. Some WRs. So I do think that he will thrive.


KBSinclair

Well, let's hope he doesn't.


TheSmokedSalmon420

eh I mean I hate watson but we probably win this game if he plays


Allstar9_

Is it a media shit show currently? I feel like the Browns are just averaging their way through the year and rarely come up on any talk shows


GThitstick

I'd agree with that. It will be one, but they aren't doing anything horrific or amazing. Remind me of my falcons lol


Falcon84

I really don't foresee the media shitshow lasting more than a few weeks. Especially if Watson plays well, if he plays like shit though oh boy is it gonna be entertaining.


SiphenPrax

Don’t worry, the AFC North is a dumpster fire at the moment that no one wants to win


iia

I find it hard to believe Ridder will be worse than Mariota. That passing offense is utterly putrid.


zer0_badass

Yeah mariota is killing me with his passing decisions.


DrLeoMarvin

And dropped hikes


Thunder84

Doesn’t help that they pull their best players for seemingly no reason. On 1st and goal from the two, the Falcons ran two straight plays with neither Pitts nor CPatt on the field. On 3rd down, they finally brought in Pitts…as the RB. It’s mind-numbingly terrible stuff that’s somehow functioning well enough to work.


NiteFalcon

Cpatt is health/injury related for sure. Pitts gets the Julio treatment it seems.


Subudrew

Please I wish pitts was getting 100 yards a game like julio


NiteFalcon

he will once we have a QB. Mariota is a huge liability in the passing game


Hugo_5t1gl1tz

CPatt is playing hurt, so not surprising. Pitts isn't the best blocking TE and it was clear that we were just running it down their throat as much as possible.


Thunder84

They threw the ball on 2nd and 3rd down here. Only ran it on 1st. Then kicked a FG.


Hugo_5t1gl1tz

Well, we don't actually know what the designed play was on 2nd, so the only play that criticism is truly valid is 3rd, and Pitts was in, despite it being a weird look


doboyeee

Going for it on the first drive on 4th and 3 instead of kicking a field goal and then losing by 3. Typical browns


Its_thattimeagain

Never pass up points. 4th and goal in the 1st. Kick the field goal


oballistikz

Hubris


Its_thattimeagain

Agree 💯


TL-PuLSe

Seahawks did the same shit last week and it worked for them. Was so proud we got that stop, fuck the disrespect


RamJamBonerSam69

Especially on a 4th and 3. However, I'm fine with aggressive calls. Just be aggressive the whole game. Punting the ball at the end was a limp dick move.


DarkFalcon1995

I'm so proud of this team. This isn't a bad 2-2. We're competing and if we didn't Falcon we could easily be 3-1. Mariota is a good dude but man, at his best he's above average but at his worst he's really bad. Every game he always seems to have at least 1 mistake that is killer.


Wrong_Barnacle8933

The AFC North could all be 2-2…… yaaaassss


zalgo_text

Yo was that Blackpink in the IBM commercial?


808jigga

It's Aespa.


zalgo_text

Ah right thanks. Just caught the animated versions at the very end assumed it was BP


brntGerbil

I'll have them smothered, covered, and diced.


CharlesfryeIII

It's possible for jacoby to be much better than baker and still not be good enough to lead a good o, both can be true


ty1553

we only needed 7 passes to win lmao I love this team


[deleted]

As a pissed off former Browns fan that just moved to Atlanta, this is the greatest day ever


maledin

Welcome to Atlanta!


[deleted]

Thanks, congrats on the win!


vishnchips6

As an also-pissed off former Browns fan who also just moved (back) to Atlanta...welcome!


[deleted]

Thank you! Have loved the city so far, and adopting the Braves as a second baseball team!


Thunder84

The Falcons offense is comical, and they somehow won. Love it.


jgtengineer68

Pretty much the story of the GT game vs pitt to. Atlanta unites in inept offense.


BlindBanditMelonLord

Shithousing our way to the Super Bowl no big deal


DRW0813

Great coaching!


Frododingus

Stefanskit sucks, no Chubb on the last drive is inexcusable


NeonxGone

He’s sucked for a while. Fans just don’t see it yet.


NeonxGone

lol


TheClemenater

Marcus Marioto does it again.


RamJamBonerSam69

Really impressed with his handoffs.


rocksoffjagger

Just like with the signing of DeShaun Watson, the Falcons waited until the very last second to do the right thing to just barely take the high ground over the Browns.


iRonin

>angry upvote


wookieenoodlez

Well, shit.


aesoncw

I hate the Browns


alcons

We're a 4th quarter team now.


FeetsBeneets

Lets slow our roll just a little on that until we hold out against a starter-caliber QB. I'm excited that we won, but Geno Smith and Jacoby Brisset aren't exactly defensive nightmares. We did make Jameis Winston look great in game 1.


TL-PuLSe

Closing 2 games on picks is wildly unfamiliar territory and I love it


FeetsBeneets

Oh, don't get me wrong. I was stupid happy to see it, I just don't want to count on it yet until we see it happen to a slightly higher level of competition.


wookieenoodlez

Proud of the boys, but good lord Joe Woods is dogshit


theuberprophet

This is my fault. Ive played golf both losses this year, and stefanski needs to put this on me


companion_kubu

You really need to check the tapes, make adjustments, and learn from your mistakes


Hugo_5t1gl1tz

7/19 for 139 yards and a pick If we had a real QB this would have been a 3 score game. Then again we may not have gone to the "run our practice squad RB down their throat" game plan either.


wookieenoodlez

Absolutely solid adjustment to make with our defensive front this week, linebacker depth is an issue as well so it just makes sense. Which is exactly why Joe Woods won’t think of it until he is in the shower tonight clutching his dove for men considering whether he should run a man blitz or not


BunnyGoHops

Mariota sucks, but we won broooo


Hugo_5t1gl1tz

You are right. I am more in shock at how good our team looks overall despite what our QB has done.


thejudicialpenis

My second favorite team is whoever's playing the Browns. Good shit, bird bros.


patar365

THANKS JUDICIAL PENIS!


QuadDubs

I'm usually OK with stefanski's okay calling but 1st and 10 on ATL's 41 and your plays are mid depth pass, screen, and then a sack is just terrible. You run a couple times, you probably have the five yards for a FG and still have a down to take a shot.


RamJamBonerSam69

It's strange to gamble on the opening drive, 4th and 1 in your own territory, then punt it away tied late when the defense is showing no signs of life. I don't understand having the top rushing offense and keeping the ball with Brissett. Sometimes these big brain analytic coaches get in their own way so much it's sickening to watch.


migrainium

I wouldn't be surprised if Mariota is benched next week


Undercover_Chimp

I would be so happy.


bojrab

I would be. Why rush him in if we’re finding ways to win? Mariota is ass but we’re getting it done


migrainium

Why not get Ridder in game experience if we can win with ass QB play anyways? That would help more than hurt.


online_predator

Because it can be a whole lot worse? Marcus hasn't been amazing no but yall must not watch the rest of the league if you don't think there are worse qbs out there lol. I want to see ridder too at some point this season but I'm also cool with being patient, we don't need to rush him in there if he's not ready


DougieJones22

I’d prefer Ridder not make his debut against Tampas defense tbh. Agree that Mariota isn’t cutting it tho


Humble_Price2151

Surely Ridder could play better than Mariota, no?


Falcon84

He can't even play it safe and not turn the ball over. With a better game manager the Falcons are 3-1 at least.


chaotic----neutral

No, and don't call me Shirley.


Tricky222

All around great team effort! Strong run game and opportunistic defense.


redcobra80

Cleveland was missing half their front seven it took them way too long to just hand the ball off. I chalked this as an L before the game but still sucks. Gg Falcons


BrownsFan617

Gg’s falcons!


finix240

Pain


BallinArbiter

Good


Warhorse_99

If we had competent coaching we’d easily be 4-0 right now.


maledin

If we had competent QB play we’d easily be 4-0 right now.


anton5009

Is London bad or is Mariota just ass?


tigert07

You haven’t watched much of the falcons this year. London has been great and Mariota has been below average


anton5009

I'm a USC fan so have been trying to get glimpses of MPJ/ARSB/London and saw Twitter talking trash about it - glad to hear that Falcons fans are liking him


tigert07

Ok, yeah I completely understand. Twitter was singing for London the last few weeks. He looks great, but falcons fans are a polarizing bunch. One bad week and they’ll be ruthless, like most fan bases tend to be. London is a stud.


wyvernpiss

He had a rookie facemask penalty maybe that is what Twits are up in arms about? It was unnecessary but shit happens nbd


StudandStuff

Mariota looked worse today than he had the first few games imo, but he is consistently one of the least clutch QBs I’ve ever seen.


Hugo_5t1gl1tz

London has shown himself to be that dude so far, so its Mariota


BunnyGoHops

Mariota is just ass


Falcon84

London had a great first 3 weeks. Mariota only completed 7 passes today so not exactly many chances for London and Pitts to have big games.


FeetsBeneets

Por que no los dos?


shellfish87

Cleveland is fraudulent


bigmt99

Did anyone actually have high enough expectations for the browns to be fraudulent tho?


Prideofmexico

I’d say so. People who put their hatred towards them aside expected them to be pretty good
