Ok now for some optimism. We are going to beat Atlanta because we have to. The defense will not perform like they did against the Chiefs, Seahawks, and hell even the Saints at the end of the game. They are going to play like we all expected them to prior to this season. We will shut down Turner and force Ryan to throw. We will get atleast 2 INTs and maybe a third.
Ok now to Mike Johnson calling the plays. The Falcons defense will not know what hit them. This so called "last ditch effort" from Sing will actually work and it will work immediately. This team is desperate and will not do stupid penalties like false starts and commit dumbass turnovers like muffed punts that miraculously stay in bounds. MJ's calls will be spot on and leave Atlanta off balance. He will call creative plays that us fans would never see in a Raye'd run offense. We will perform atleast 5 successful screens to Gore and one to Davis. Smith will be fine this sunday as well. He won't be great, but he won't throw any INTs and will operate this offense with ease. "We will move the ball!"
This is one of those games we are not supposed to win. I guess you can say that about any game at this point. We are 0-3 and can only go up. Do you think Sing likes all this negative publicity and the media/fans calling him out all the time? He wants to right this ship and will do whatever it takes. I do not believe he is that stubborn. Remember switching to the spread last season when his smashmouth football wasn't working. He doesn't want to be fired and I still believe in him. Ultimately, everything is on him.
