Falcons vs. Vikings: A Tweet Recap

New, comments

It was hard to find many tweets that didn't contain profanity this week.

Let me just start by saying this.

I'll be honest, I don't even feel like writing a tweet recap. I don't feel like writing anything about this team, because my parents taught me that if you don't have anything nice to say, then you shouldn't say anything at all. Based on that wisdom, this is one of those times where I should simply keep all of my thoughts to myself, because I've got nothing but hate in my heart for that defensive performance in particular. However, it seems like people really like the tweet recap, and if it cheers up even one Falcons fan, it'll be worth it.

The times, they are a-changin', Evil Matt Ryan.

Things got off to a rocky start.

There were some good things, like Roddy White being insanely wide open for a touchdown.

But then things went back to awful again in short order.

Some other good things happened offensively--Matt Ryan was making plays through the air and with his legs. Antone Smith was doing Antone Smith things. Julio was doing what he does best, and the run game was even moving pretty effectively. It was just enough to give fans hope.

He did, but somehow it was actually the least embarrassing thing that happened during this game.

Matt Chernoff makes a good point.

Past a point, this game was just a catastrophe. It was mostly a dumpster fire of a performance.

Oh, hey, Tom, this is a pretty neat idea.

Except the Falcons couldn't keep doing that because of the injuries--my goodness, the injuries. The hits just kept on coming, literally and figuratively. At least we know Kemal Ishmael is okay, because he returned to the game.

The Falcons didn't even have enough active offensive linemen to address the holes left by injury. They played the remainder of the game with four offensive linemen and one very tall, slender tight end at tackle.

Matt Ryan threw two garbage time picks, and then Ronde Barber decided to make everyone dislike him more than we did previously by stating that Matt Ryan can't win on the road.

Is it time for torches and pitchforks? It's probably not worth it.

At the very least, it's probably wise to prepare for an inconsistent season at best, because Dave is right. I don't believe anyone will be fired in the immediate future.

Here's a helpful tip for coping with the state of the 2014 Falcons.
