I don't need 140 characters! They need toWIN #Road2MetLifeStadium— Terrell (@SIR_TERRELL) October 3, 2013
Falcons need to execute on the offensive side of the ball, talent is there but poor execution so far! #Road2MetLifeStadium— Duncan Trumble (@dsqueezy22) October 2, 2013
While the content of each entry was not a factor in determining the winners, as they were selected randomly, we did receive some interesting perspectives on what the Falcons need to do to get back on the Road to MetLife Stadium.
Some were funny:
Matt Ryan must start leaving marks on his forehead just like Peyton does when he takes his helmet off. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Albert Leao (@albertleao) October 3, 2013
Start winning and keep winning easy peasy lemon squeezy #Road2MetLifeStadium— Andy Hackman (@hackmaak) October 2, 2013
The Falcons need to win in the NFC Championship Game. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Chaucer Ellison (@Chaucerisms) October 3, 2013
To win, the Falcons need to.. I don't know. I have 3 kids and no social life. I need these tickets! Pretty please? #Road2MetLifeStadium— BLU (@surrealblu) October 2, 2013
Some were wise:
The Falcons need 2 focus on winning 1 game @ a time. BIG players make BIG plays! We have been in every game. FINISH! #Road2MetLifeStadium— William Coleman (@wdcc4falcons) October 2, 2013
Take it one game at a time. #Road2MetLifeStadium— terminally chill (@gritty_grinder) October 2, 2013
#Road2MetLifeStadium all the Falcons need to do is come together as a team, play hard and fight through the adversity that is before them.— Rod Nelson Grimes (@SGTggUSMC) October 3, 2013
The 3 R's: Ryan, Red zone, Rise up. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Daniel Nicks (@nicks6278) October 2, 2013
Some were philosophical:
Last season the Falcons won a bunch of games by inches- this season they have lost a couple by just inches. Need Karma. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Brian Wilson (@BrianArrrWilson) October 3, 2013
The Falcons must do sum True Identity & Soul Searching if we got any chance of going to the Super Bowl #Road2MetLifeStadium— Toonta K. of SDK (@ToontaKofSDK) October 3, 2013
@TheFalcoholic This Falcons team is missing 2 keys from '12: health/breaks in close games. Need both to get to the SB. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Jon Suggs (@lastgreypoet) October 2, 2013
Some were optimistic:
Need to keep calm & confident and enjoy the game they love! Play together and always know it ain't over till 0:00! #Road2MetLifeStadium— Alysa (@alysalaricci) October 3, 2013
Rising up for every occation and keeping an open eye for any opportunity...we can do this Atlanta #Road2MetLifeStadium— FalconsLove (@sairahaji) October 3, 2013
The Falcons just need to #RiseUp and keep on to #Road2MetLifeStadium— Wesley Waters (@WesleyWaters1) October 2, 2013
The #Road2MetLifeStadium had a rough start, but never panic with @M_Ryan02 at QB. His poise and leadership will lead us where we want to be.— Jarrette White (@JarretteWhite4) October 2, 2013
My Falcons need to learn to close out games! still got faith though! #RiseUp #Road2MetLifeStadium— jimjim006 (@jimjim006) October 2, 2013
Many contained the words "red zone."
The Falcons need to get healthy on both sides of the ball, improve red zone efficiency and create turnovers. #Road2MetLifeStadium— Tyler Shackleford (@tylershack) October 2, 2013
The @Atlanta_Falcons need to fix red zone issues and play better once gaining the lead #Road2MetLifeStadium— John Williams (@johnwilliams713) October 2, 2013
Falcons just need to solve their red zone offense issues and they will be good to go for the playoffs #Road2MetLifeStadium— Brian Adams (@fsurock38) October 2, 2013
Red Zone, Red Zone RED ZONE! #Road2MetLifeStadium— Joe Morrison (@rudy311poo) October 2, 2013
Congratulations to Terrell James and Duncan Trumble. Have fun at the game, and rise up!
