I just spent a few minutes reading through the official MB of the Falcons and that is some of the least intelligent and irrelevant dribble I've ever seen posted in a serious manner. They are blatently stating that they don't want to talk actual football, rather just rant and bash on another team. Then others are asking where the Texan fans have been on their boards...we haven't played them since 2003, that's probably a good starting point for why we don't venture over there. Jesus, I've never seen such a moronic and helpless group of people coming together unknowingly to form a fanbase. It's a disgrace to football, and to those of us who happened to venture over already.

The one thing you will learn about Falcons fans is that most are really Vick fans and not fans of the team. They are also thug wannabe's who think they are tough and love to talk alot of trash.

The only fan worse I have ever seen are Steelers fans.

Just to play Devil's Advocate for a bit, the Falcons have had arguably the worst off season in football history and the real season doesn't hold out much hope for improvement. So I can see why their fans are whiny and disgruntled. I just of the better them than me camp. Oh, and maybe we should start a thread over there thanking them for Schaub. That should go over real well.

Frankly I'm being polite and friendly over on their main site because I'm expecting the Falcons to give us trouble this Sunday. I hope Kubiak has us ready to play because the Falcons are probably just about ready to take out three weeks worth of frustration out on somebody.

I want the Texans to get in, stay healthy, get the win, and get out of there. Good teams don't have let downs following emotional highs (Indy game) and good teams take care of business when they play losing teams.

The Falcons scare me. The Dolphins after that I'm not so worried about but the Falcons do scare me.

I agree. I watched the Falcons last weekend and they weren't horrible. If the offense sputters due to our large cast of walking wounded and leaves the defense on the field, we could be in a bind.

The Falcons stink against the run but can we muster a running attack strong enough to push them around? We've got a solid QB but we're pretty skinny on WR talent at the moment. So I'm concerned about the O leaving the D stranded, the D getting tired, and I don't have to tell the rest of the story because we all watched it a lot last year.

I definitely agree with that. I'm very wary of the Falcons. They just battled hard with Carolina and probably felt that they should have won that game. They're ticked off and they're ready to take it out on someone.

I fear that someone to be the Houston Texans. The time is ripe. We're dinged up. Morale is a bit low after losing our WR and starting RB.

That team is Michael Vick's team. Matt Schaub may not be vengeful but Vick lead that team for some time. Someone stated that as a result of Vick, it spurned their fan base into what they are on their official message board, rabid thugs. Leadership reflects everything. I'm now thinking that Vick's antics have rubbed off on his teammates.

Oh yeah, the Falcons are coming after us. Hard. Kick 'em while they're down. That's how a thug operates. Yep, we're down and they're kicking. The time is ripe for the kicking.

I expect us to win this one but I'm NOT dismissing the Falcons. Joey Harrington can throw the football. Yes, he gets sacked tons but he's still going to throw the ball downfield. Where are we the weakest? Our secondary.

Turnovers are the key to this game. We have to win the turnover battle.

What have we done this year to even be considered as play-off cntenders?

We beat a bad KC team, a bad Carolina team, and played Indy ok (injuries aside)? Not the greatest of accomplishments. Now, don't get me wrong the team is defiantly improving, but I think the play-off contender talk has beed a bit premature.

Agreed, this is almost a trap type game. The one thing that really eases my fears is that Matt Schaub is not gonna overlook this game one bit. I don't think he will overlook anyone, but don't ya think he wants to have a really good outing?

I don't know if I would call them a team that is down. Bad is a better word. They only lost their QB. We just lost our starting WR (twice), starting SS (twice), starting RBs (twice but Dayne is expected to play). See where I'm coming from? We're down. They're bad. I see it a different way than you indicated.

It's also the freaking NFL. You know the term, Any Given Sunday? Do you think the Falcons go 16-0? The Falcons have some confidence after the Carolina game this weekend. They are pumped and ready (at least they better be) to play Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans this weekend. They want their first win of the season, and they want it this weekend. Of course they wanted it the last two Sundays also. Trap game, scary game, whatever you want to call it, it has the makings of an upset. If we don't give them the game like previous Texan teams we should win this one. This is a game that we should win no doubt about it, but this is the NFL and there are no gimmees.

But by your saying that you don't think it has anyone down..... leads me to think that you seem to think that I'm calling the Texans depressed or something?

We got punched in the stomach against the Colts. Yeah, we're upbeat but we still got punched and fell on all fours. We're trying to get back on our feet. With every players' return, the Texans slowly rise from the ground and get their feet back under them.

But hey... whatever you say! Your version of the English language just very well may be different from mine.

I think this is the opposite of a trap game. If we had won against Indy I could see it as a definitional trap game--young team on a high beating the super bowl champs coming in a little overconfident against a team wanting to prove itself. Instead our team is coming off a loss. Injuries don't make traps IMO--that is just a hurt team that can't play to unhurt potential.

That said, this is no gimme game at all and the Texans better stay focused like they were in Carolina.

That's exactly what I'm saying. Although I do think it has some people down, namely the players that won't get to play. But do I think the team is down? No, I don't. So what exactly are you saying? Are you saying that we are down, but morale is up? And by the way, I'm not trying to argue with you.

I got to see the Falcons game this weekend and I will say this, hopefully the OL is up to snuff to stop Abraham because he is a monster! The Falcons are not too good against the run, but if Hall keeps his cool they are good against the pass. They are not as bad as the 0-3 record indicates, that's for sure.

The Pencil Neck
09-26-2007, 03:18 PM
I've been afraid that this would be a trap game because of the emotional let-down after playing so hard against the Colts. Also, because historically we never seem to beat the teams we're supposed to beat.

BUT. This is not the same old Texans and even though Schaub might not be looking for revenge, he's not going to take this team lightly. I think the injuries may also help give us a back-against-the-wall sort of feeling.

If we can't speak figuratively then there's no point in having discussions. Yes, you're trying to argue. You know what I said and and you know what I meant.... but....

*in a monotone voice*

The Houston Texans are not at full strength and the Falcons need to take advantage of that.

/sarcasm over and back to the discussion...

As for morale, I don't know. I'm not in the locker room. I can only go by Texan Nation and Texan Nation is extremely upbeat overall therefore I'd like to think that that would spill over to the Texans locker room. I don't think morale is down. They hung with the Colts until the end without our starters. I would think it'd be skyhigh.

The Falcons have not really been dominated. They've played 3 competitive games and are very upset at how last week transpired. They practically allowed a game to slip through their fingers and it's been on their mind since the clock read zeros. There is alot of talent on this team; a servicable quarterback with a 90.6 QB Rating and 70% completion percentage, an improving WR in Roddy White, a perennial Pro Bowl TE in Alge Crumpler, RBs like Jerious Norwood and Warrick Dunn, All-Pro FB in Ovie Muhelli, star (but big mouthed) CB in Hall, a dangerous DE in Abraham, etc. We have talent.

And... Trap game??? Are you kidding me? Trap game???

Fellas... Has anyone been able to run on our team yet? Did our offense cease to move the ball in any of the last 3 games? We are fine guys, you just need to remember that this is still a strong AFC team against a weak NFC team.

I believe that's behind him. Following that 7 sack game against Jacksonville, coach Petrino called him out and demanded he get rid of the football. He did that last week and it led to success. I'm convinced he'll stick with that game plan this week too.

His TD:INT ratio is 1:1, but Schaub's isn't much better either.

You haven't been watching the NFL longer than 3 weeks have you? Even being a Texans' fan should serve you humble pie.

A 2-1 start is better than an 0-3 start, but any team can beat on any given Sunday [especially on the road]. Technically, the game shouldn't be close but I think many are convinced it will be (including myself).

How did Jacksonville put a spanking on the Falcons? We lost by 6 points on the road.

You still do not understand how the NFL works. I'm a Falcons fan, and I understood that along time ago. It still holds true. Here's an example:

2006 Atlanta Falcons.
Win over the Pittsburgh Steelers
Win over the Cincinnati Bengals
Loss to the Detroit Lions
Loss to the Cleveland Browns

The Texans haven't proven enough in order to have "the odds stacked in our favor".

I hope the Texans players don't think like some here do. If so, they might be in for a rude awakening.

Lets put this in perspective, Pete has given up numbers to 3 main wide outs:


Reggie Wayne ( Elite wide out whos on the short list of top guys)
Marvin Harrison (1st ballot HOFer whos as good now as he was 3 years ago)
Steve Smith (the TOP of the short list)

Thats a rough 2 game stretch, your gonna give up plays. And, Smiths day wass a little blown up due to the long one at the end of the game. So, I think we may be alright. Not a cake walk, but ok.

Agreed. Petey is a solid #2 so long as he isn't lined up with some of the most athletic WRs in the league (such as Harrison and Smith). I expect him to have a solid game against the Falcs.

I beleive what some old school coaches say about your record is who you are. If you are 0-3, than you are not that good. The Falcons 'could' have won last week, but they did what a 'not-so-good' team does, they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by one player melting down...

Sorry, that's what bad teams, with bad chemistry do...

Good point.Good Example:2005 Houston Texans.

The Falcons have not really been dominated. They've played 3 competitive games and are very upset at how last week transpired. They practically allowed a game to slip through their fingers and it's been on their mind since the clock read zeros. There is alot of talent on this team; a servicable quarterback with a 90.6 QB Rating and 70% completion percentage, an improving WR in Roddy White, a perennial Pro Bowl TE in Alge Crumpler, RBs like Jerious Norwood and Warrick Dunn, All-Pro FB in Ovie Muhelli, star (but big mouthed) CB in Hall, a dangerous DE in Abraham, etc. We have talent.

Than what do you call a 24-3 loss in Week 1 to another team with no quarterback (Minnesota)??? Does that fit your definition of competitive??? If so the Texans have always been competetive.... But I guess at 0-3 you got to look at any bright spot you can.... don't worry we've been there:panic:

You haven't done anything to better the reputation of Falcon fans. Honestly, go look at your MB's, objectivly, as if you were a Texan fan. Then you will know why your opinion and team are so highly thought of around here.

That's not why I came here. I'm not even convinced we'll win, so why on GOD's Earth would I try to convince someone else otherwise? I'm not here to better any reputation either. I don't think any Falcons fan gives a hoot about any perception and I certainly don't. This message board isn't much better either.

The one thing you will learn about Falcons fans is that most are really Vick fans and not fans of the team. They are also thug wannabe's who think they are tough and love to talk alot of trash.

The only fan worse I have ever seen are Steelers fans.

That is so shallow and stereotypical,I am 47 years old and have been a Falcon fan since 1968,I chose the Falcons,because my older brother was a Redskin fan.So you see junior there are lots of us before and will be after Vick.Come to think of it I was an NFL fan long before you folks were Texan fans and I`m from NC also like you:)

Well, like I said, MOST fans are fans of Vick and not the team. Can you deny that? I remember the year Vick broke his leg and the Falcons went into the can, people on the Falcons board were demanding refunds and claiming to burn their tickets. Yep, some great FALCONS fans there.

Yes there are some very good and loyal Falcons fans, but I would estimate they are in the minority, or would you are that?

BTW do not ASSUME people's ages and call people junior, I am 41 and far from a junior.

Point is the FALCONS as a team are a pretty good team who's 0-3 record IMO does not reflect on the way they have played, but hey, that is my OPINION.

I certainly didn`t mean to disrespect your age.I guess people have a misconception that all our fans fall into the Vick Hugger category,We have our share and our fan-base is almost embarrassingly divided among Vick Huggers and true Falcon fans,I put myself in the latter category although I supported him while he was here.You guys have a good QB in Schaub and darn I wish we still had him.I come here in peace and not to be a trash talker ..and I apppreciate your compliments on my team and heres to one helluva` football game.with no injuries!

TexansFaninNC
09-28-2007, 09:24 PM
I would definately agree with you on the no injuries part.

I do believe this will be a much closer game than some think it will be. Atlanta is not as bad as the 0-3 record shows, and if not for Hall's total meltdown last week, I have no doubt they would have beaten the Panthers.

I still do believe the Texans will win, but think it will be by 7 points or less.

Here's what I read after the first three words of the first post:

"DUR DUR DUR DURRRRRRRRRR DUR DUR DURRRRRR DUR DUR."

Houstonians in general are very polite (southern hospitality and all...and yes, it is VERY noticable to me, a chicago native), but the OP in that thread basically baited the ATL fans, who responded in kind.

I think I would much rather throw ALL my energy behind the Texans than put any into trash-talking another team whose trash-talkers haven't brung the verbal heat since third grade.

This thread is ridiculous as to how many Falcons fans don't have an education.

These points need to be made.

1. I wouldn't be proud to be in the NFC while being 0-3. That just means your the worst of the worst.
2. Can you please think of an insult that hasn't been used ten million times in the past 10 years?
3. Last time I checked, Joey Harrington has been to 3 teams, all of which he hasn't lived up to the number 3 pick.
4. How many people have been to Houston, no one? Because hardly any of us talk "cowpoke", you'll find that up north in Dallas.
5. One decent game out of Joey Harrington and Falcons fans declare the second coming of Steve Bartkowski.

Oh, and The ATL, I gotta give you props for Cow Nuts for a hat. That was pretty good. What are ya'll going to wear on your heads after this season? Falcon poop? >.< Gross.

Believe me, there's no other Texan fan that wants ya'll (OMG I'M A HICK!!1) to win more...just not this week... And, er, any week in the past and future that Micheal Vick starts.
