Falcons vs. Panthers: a Tweet Recap

A recap of yesterday's implosion against Carolina, in tweet form.

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

We all know how things ended yesterday in Carolina. The loss was a bad one, and was a nail in the sad, sad coffin that is the Falcons' 2013 season.

Fans, and Julio Jones, were generally optimistic going into the game, though.

And some fans just asked the Falcons for a win politely.

Some fans had some smart ideas for the game plan. Someone should let Mike Smith know.

Some fans are just doing it right.

And some people are really doing this wrong.

Sir, your Twitter name is "@PositivelyNick," but this isn't very positive.

Hey, they have to be good at something, right?

Can Atlanta's opponents really not come up with original celebration dances?

As usual, Matt Bosher and Matt Bryant earn praise from fans.

The refs were terrible. Let's not even try to sugarcoat it.

Mike Smith was pretty mad about it, too.

Atlanta's defense brought a lot of pressure early, which was fun to watch.

And the young rookie cornerbacks, Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford, added a pair of interceptions to the first-half defensive effort.

A red zone touchdown, you guys! A red zone touchdown!

Corey Peters returned to the game after suffering a knee injury, and hopefully the MRI he will undergo today will reveal no damage, but just in case, you may want to stay off Roswell Road.

The Falcons actually kind of ran the ball against the Panthers! It's probably not great that a collective 78-yard rushing effort is exciting, but you have to take what you can get this season.

But, there were still some questionable play calls on running downs.

Matt Ryan made some uncharacteristically terrible decisions. It's also obvious that, while Ryan is forcing plays in some situations, they are plays that Roddy White or Julio Jones, both very physical receivers, could likely make.

And, the penalties! Good Lord, the penalties.

At the end of the day, the mistakes and penalties put the Falcons in a position to lose.

No. The Falcons should not trade Matt Ryan. Please just stop.

We all have different ways of coping.

And there's always a bright side.
