This one won't be quite as fun.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to pick the single worst play of the 2011 Atlanta Falcons season. Everything that made the nomination list is brutally bad in its own right, but to paraphrase Sean Connery, there can only be one worst Atlanta Falcons play. It helps if you say it in a Scottish accent.

Let's hit the nominees.

  • Michael Turner gets stuffed at the goal line Week 10 against the Saints, keeping the Falcons from a touchdown on fourth down in overtime and ultimately costing them the game. Right call, terrible execution.
  • Hakeem Nicks laying waste to the secondary and scoring a touchdown in the playoff game against the Giants.
  • Someone nominated most of Mike Mularkey's play calls. Here for entertainment value.
  • Matt Ryan's quarterback sneak against the Giants. Take your pick with either, really.
  • Any completed Drew Brees pass during the Monday night game with the Saints.
  • Julio Jones' fumble against the Saints. I'm sensing a pattern here with teams.
  • Matt Ryan gently places the ball on the ground in Week 1 against Chicago, fumbling away the football and the game.
  • Corey Peters' encroachment versus Tampa Bay the first time around.
