    I wish we were able to get our #1 WR as open as Atlanta seems to be able to... hell, ANY of our WRs getting open would be great!

    All I've taken from this game is that Kevin Vickerson still exists in the NFL.

    LOL at everyone who said trading for Samuel would be stupid.

    Yep... could've had a top 10 CB for just a 7th round pick and less money than Griffin. Good job, FO. Clutch.

    Haha that's what they all say... but we all just saw him destroy McGahee and Decker. Guy hits harder than any DB we have... and flies to the ball - most INTs in the league over the last 6 seasons, but we don't want him. Cool.

    I was actually criticized for saying we should get him... Could've kept Finnegan and got Samuel, let Griffin walk, and all the sudden our secondary is awesome. But you know, our FO apparently doesn't know what they're doing, so it's understandable.

    Have you seen our scheme or personnel? Deion and Bailey in their primes couldn't cover with what we have.

    Why was our coverage so good last year? Finnegan, McCourty, and Verner all ranked way up there in terms of coverage.

    Because that's last year and we seem to be a lot worse than last year.

    Holy crap... this game is literally the same as when we played in ATL last year.

    Falcons up 27-7 late in game, Broncos come back to make it 27-21, Falcons convert pass on 3rd down.

    Same exact thing happened with us, except the score was 23-3, and we made it 23-17... big time deja vu.

    Yea, but it's still a valid point... Same DC and CBs minus Finnegan... I'm saying if we could cover last year (all our CBs did well), why wouldn't we be able to do with a superior CB in Samuel?
