Falcons vs. Dolphins: a Tweet Recap

Football is back, y'all, and with it comes tweet recaps.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It sure was exciting to be back in the Georgia Dome last night. Football is back!

Josh Vaughn had a pretty good game, but he very nearly didn't make it into the Georgia Dome last night.

Dave raises a valid question.

The first defensive series could be described as "not good," so obviously the season is doomed.

The first team offense looked to be firing on all cylinders.

It doesn't show up on the stat sheet, as his best work was negated by penalties, but Antone Smith sure did look explosive last night.

So did Devonta Freeman, actually. The rookie put up 50 rushing yards on 10 carries, as well as one beautiful 57-yard catch.

Devonta Freeman is impressive in every language.

Take cover, kid, what? Run for your brother, Bernard Reedy, run for your team.

Matt Ryan completed 100% of his passes, his receivers looked solid, the run blocking looked to be significantly improved, and several other players stood out in positive ways.

Some players did not stand out in positive ways, but hey, it's preseason.

Backup kicker Sergio Castillo is becoming a fan favorite because his name makes him sound like he belongs in a romance novel.

Dave warned fans of the impending doom of the third quarter, and the Falcons actually controlled the clock, scored a field goal, and did not allow any points in the third quarter. Hey, remember when Dave wanted to draft Glenn Dorsey?

Maggie, I tip my cap to your dedication, and we all wish you a speedy recovery.

Clearly Steve has always had his priorities in order.

Yes, DW, it definitely is.

Falcons fans have seen a lot of wins in the Mike Smith/Matt Ryan era, but very few of those have come in preseason. It was a welcome change after such a difficult 2013 season.

We saw some good things, and we saw some things that need to improve, but at the end of the day, it's nice to walk away with a win.
