Look, I get what you are saying. No need to dig up trends or whatever, but the odds are stacked in the Texans' favor.

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.

if the best reason you can think of for your team to win is "Any given sunday!" ......you might be a falcons fan

If you have to be cheerfully optimistic about the 3rd coming of joey harrington....you might be a falcons fan

If you feel your 0-3 team is a lock to beat a 2-1...you might be a falcons fan

If you think Roddy white, coming off his second CAREER 100 yard game, is suddenly a viable threat....you might be a falcons fan.

Actually, that's not the best reason. It's just common knowledge that I used to remind the Texan fan where he once was. You give someone an inch, and they'll take a mile.

If you think Deangelo Hall's $100k fine is enough punishment...you might be a Falcons fan.

If a former player of yours is the centerpiece of a town meeting...you might be a Falcons(or Giants) fan.

Seriously dude you should have started a thread like this. Hell each week you should start one, but only start with a one-liner, so you don't take all of the good ones.

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.

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

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

I'm sure you're a nice person on the inside, and sure, we can count that for something, but you haven't shown anyone why your team is going to win. 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.

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!

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.
