Falcons vs. Giants: A Tweet Recap

New, comments

It's getting harder and harder to find game day tweets that aren't profane.

Tweet recaps are usually fun because game day Tweets capture the ebbs and flows of fans' emotions throughout the game.The Tweet recaps on The Falcoholic were borne of the pain and struggle and angst fans of this team experienced last season. The shared experience galvanized us, while laughing through our pain sustained us. All the while, we looked toward next season. Well, that season is here, and it is not living up to expectations.

Yesterday's game was painful, but it didn't start off that way.

Devin Hester made an interesting choice on a return. He was politely and repeatedly asked by fans to never do that again.

Julio Jones is ridiculous.

I'll never get used to this.

There were some weird play calls and some lapses in the first half.

The offensive line held up really well in the first half, though. Things were looking bright-ish overall.

Need a break from reminiscing about this game? Here's a picture of a cute canine Falcons fan.

Why isn't this a thing?

Early in the second half, Matt Bosher was knocked down after a punt, and Jason Pierre-Paul penalized for it. Bosher proceeded to do some kind of ninja handstand thing, because Matt Bosher is awesome.

And Antone Smith once again forced everyone watching to ask why he doesn't get more touches.

Even though the Falcons maintained a lead, it felt like a collapse was imminent.

And guess what? A collapse was imminent.

Please, Falcons, don't ever let Warren Sapp be right.

It's time to move on to the Bears, because I don't want to talk about this one anymore.
