Please call your doctor if you experience chortles that last longer than four hours.

T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree both got an opportunity to play, and Yates definitely impressed.
@TheFalcoholic TJ YAYtes.— Tom Morin (@_morint) August 28, 2014
Yates finished his day having completed 15 or 20 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns. But let's try to keep it in perspective, guys.
TJ Yates comin for that ass Matt Ryan— Almond Brown (@MegaWuBanga) August 28, 2014
Yates also had one rough play where pass protection entirely broke down, and Yates just stood there and allowed a sack to slowly unfold, and it happened to be part of a less-than-great series.
Run for a loss, Peter Konz penalty, T.J. Yates sacked. If I go to hell, I'll find that sequence there.— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) August 28, 2014
The defense looked good overall, with two sacks, and they were very effective against the Jaguars on third down, but there were some defensive lapses.
Here's my recap of that series: WELP.— Jeanna (@jeannathomas) August 28, 2014
Antone Smith didn't break off a big play every single time he touched the ball, which was annoying.
What's going on? Why is Antone not breaking off 50-yard runs on every play? This feels all wrong.— Jeanna (@jeannathomas) August 28, 2014
That was not to say that Smith had no big plays.
And there's the big play Antone Smith we all know and love. 66 yard touchdown run for the speedy back! 13-7 Falcons.— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) August 28, 2014
We all know Matt Bosher hits like a truck, and he actually got flagged for it last night.
Matt Bosher is about to whoop some ass #thatttaboy— Katelyn Chase (@KatelynChase) August 29, 2014
I'm sorry I'm taking Matt Bosher in a fight over Ace Sanders any day #hitstickpunter— Andrew Mahfood (@mahfood) August 29, 2014
I love Matt Bosher. LMAO! We have the most gangsta punter ever. LMAO!— Justin (@JSpearman4) August 29, 2014
Speaking of flags, there were penalties on penalties on penalties again on Thursday evening.
"Antone Smith, unsportsmanlike conduct, daring to set foot on a football field. The penalty is death."— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) August 28, 2014
Not sure I really know what is and is not a penalty anymore after this preseason.— The DW (@TheWalkerman) August 29, 2014
A win is a win, but at the end of the day, the best thing about this game was that it was the last thing standing between us and the regular season. Goodbye preseason.
24-7 #Falcons. Dominating the fourth preseason game is a little like beating a dead bird at Scrabble, but I'll take it.— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) August 29, 2014
