    Most disappointing for me stands out clear as a bell; not enough pressure on Ryan from the DL.
    Penalties would be the next. We can’t leave out time management either at the end of the half and just before the 2 minute warning in the 2nd half. I don’t see us winning another game. Truely it is time to play as many rookies as possible to see what we got. Go Bucs! Get Better!

    Agree totally except Leonard Johnson. That was a phantom call like the hands to the face call on Banks which didn’t happen either. Had Johnson interfered the ref would have pulled his flag when he saw it. I am wondering if both those calls were by the same ref that every break in the game was shown smiling and chatting with the Falcon’s Coach. To me the first PR story should be the bad calls by the dirty Zebras trying to help the Dirty Birds.

    Like every other week, the worst performance list is just a grab bag of 20+ sad performances…can these guys even honestly say they are trying their best…trying a little sure, trying on some plays probably, but trying like the game is a matter of life and death – no way….these are guys going through the motions for the most part…maybe LvD is giving it 95% but the rest are not very interested.

    As Charles Barkley would say, “Turible…..just turible.” On Offense; as John McKay might say, “We couldn’t pass block, but we made up for it by not being able to run block”. On Defense; as Horse said, there was absolutely no pass rush and we made Steven Jackson rise up from the dead. But to me, the killer phase of the team this week was once again Special Teams. The one KO return from Thigpen and the 51 yard FG from Murray were great, but Koenen’s punting and kick-offs are absolutely atrocious. Who is telling him to kick the ball straight up in the air to in effect be a 10-15 yard return on a fair catch? The buzz killer to this game was after scoring a TD and getting a 15 yard BS penalty Koenen kicks it short to Hester who promptly sets the Falcons up at almost mid-field with a mere 46 seconds left. But as has been the 39 year history of the Bucaroonies; we allow the Falcons to go right down the field for 3 points as the half ended. Buzz gone….in less than 60 seconds.

    I would like to see us maybe try a fake punt, or just go for it more on fourth down. Like last week we had a fourth, and a couple at mid field, and instead of a fake, or going for it we punt 15 yds to the 30!! Baffling. The one thing we should be great at because we do it so much is punting, but we screw that up too. I don’t think it’s asking to much to see a few heads roll. Let’s start by cutting Koenen, and firing O’Dea. Warhop, you’re next on the list.

    I am really starting to hate ASJ, This is the second game he has made a galling, game losing play. This kid needs to be put on a short leash and learn to be an adult in a hurry.

    McCoy was triple teamed all day long and it got to him. During one series he was off-sides 3 plays in a row and that led to 1st downs for Atlanta.

    Not to be mean, but do you guys watch tape of the game before making these lists? While in the midst of the game, some of these make perfect sense, but if you’re really watching the tape some of these picks don’t really make sense.

    Take McCoy, for example. You can critique him for not having any sacks or hurries…. But when watching the game film, he is double and sometimes triple teamed on pretty much every play… Not to mention two of those offsides penalties on the first drive were questionable at best.

    And speaking of flags… Can’t help but agree with owkykat about the numerous questionable calls and no calls… Counted at least three blatant holds not called against Atlanta on two of their long touchdown drives. I usually argue against this sorry if logic, but in a game that was so close for the majority of for quarters, the calls really started to affect the momentum of the game. Frustrating.

    But in the end, I can’t argue with three of our corners being on the list. They were keeping six, sometimes seven guys back to block our four rushers and Ryan was just pitching and catching with receivers sitting with seven or eight yards of cushion. When you have that sort of advantage in numbers, there’s no excuse.
