    Note how Matt Ryan until he throws holds the ball in front of him down low on his chest.......then an ultra quick release. Flacco has a similar presentation.

    Neither holds the ball high or over his shoulder, where the ball is more likely to be lost (especially with a hit from the blind side or a slow wind up) like I see Schaub do.

    Im more interested in how everytime Flacco drops back, someone on the Falcons defensive line is within a split second of a sack every single play. Pass rush is pretty amazing to watch

    He got his money. He's on a team that's winning football games. That team is also sitting on top of their division. He's made the highlight reel.

    I don't know... things seem to be working out pretty well for him right now. Better than Kareem that's for sure...

    Yup. I saw the Falcons get a coverage sack.

    I didn't know those were even possible after watching the Texans

    When your coverage is so good, it allows your pass rush to get the QB, since he has nowhere to throw.

    Have not seen that from the Texans D sounds like a myth.

    I've only started watching the 4th Qtr.

    Dunta Robinson is playing well. If he's been playing like this all year, then yes, I believe he could have helped our team. But based on what he did in Houston last year.... there's no way I would have kept him.

    Matt Bryant grew up in Bridge City Texas.... let's root for the home town kid.

    No need for Bryant! Wow, what a great call by the Falcons.

    Tony Gonzalez completely sold that PI call. He had no chance at a first and no chance at the ball really

    I tell you what else I saw on the Ravens. I saw a free agent WR see his team struggling so he rounds up the troops and looks as if to tell everyone to get their heads out their butts and start playing the football they know how to play. Then he backs it up with scoring a TD. Wish we had one of those guys on the team. Instead we get guys that go back to the sideline and stay quiet like the good boys they were brought in to be.

    I also saw a Dline where Corey Redding, Terrell Suggs and Hilati Ngata were getting pressure. Yes more than one guy was doing that on the dline.

    Damn.... that Ravens D sucks. The offense needs to score 30 to win.

    The Texans should be what the Falcons are. Solid running game. A dominant Wr with a solid QB. And a decent defense.

    We are literally built to be exactly like the Falcons.
    Good QB, excellent receiver with good possession TE. Solid running game.
    Good tackling and high talent pass rush defense


    The Falcons are 17-1 at home with Matt Ryan. Im very jealous
