Your coach is really dumb. Between the first half clock management and declining that penalty

From out to contending for division title on one play. That's as big as it gets regular season.

Yep. Falcons had 2 timeouts near the end of the 1st half. CALL 1 OF THEM WITH 25 SECONDS LEFT! Then a play call that NO was sitting on. Ryan did get in the way of the interceptor, allowing Julio to make the tackle. After the NO penalty to the end the half, both teams felt like shit going into halftime.

Really bad decision at the end of the game to decline the penalty. Really bad. The Saints never play conservative, or in other words they often make correct strategy decisions, so it was obvious they would go for it. If they kick (and make) the FG, they would give ATL plenty of time to score. The Brees INT was absolutely unexpected. Then the Freeman fumble, WTF? Strange game. More fodder for the "get rid of Thursday games" crowd.

A pretty ugly game in general. Ryan was bad, DQ was bad, Payton is an idiot, tons of injuries,....

As many times as Ryan carried this team last year, it's nice to see the D stepping up and winning some when the offense is struggling.

ATL should beat the crappy Bucs on MNF, and if they don't ATL doesn't deserve to advance. If they do, XMAS eve in Nawlins and NYE vs Carolina are looking very interesting.

Between injuries, poor officiating, and low-quality football, it was a typical Thursday Night game.

Well, at least it was a close game.

That Julio tackle was nice. There were some really nice tackles by the Falcons this game.

I don’t think declining the penalty was the right call. There was too much time on the clock and Matt Bryant is clutch and it's in a dome.
