Falcons 3, Bucs 13: What the heck is happening here?

New, comments

Well, this game is certainly garbage so far.

Remember last season when the Bucs came into Atlanta on a Thursday night in September and the Falcons rolled them with a final score of 56-14? Well, that's certainly not what's happening today.

The Falcons -- well, how can I put this delicately? They look bad. They look sloppy. There are dumb penalties, dumber turnovers, and just a general lack of execution that's painful to behold.

There have been a couple of bright spots in today's game. Julio Jones already has 112 receiving yards, and Devonta Freeman has had a couple of nice runs. Yeah, I guess that's about it. I don't know. It's difficult to find much to praise about this team right now.

The Falcons headed to the locker room as boos rained down on them from the fans in the Georgia Dome. It's not good. There's still a full half of football to play, so here's hoping the team is able to shake off whatever's holding them back and get back on track.

Use this thread to discuss the second half and hopefully celebrate a comeback.
