Falcoholic podcast: Atlanta shoots themselves in the foot repeatedly in loss

Mistakes unravel the Falcons again.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Somehow, the Falcons loss at home to Tampa Bay and are still not eliminated from the playoffs. In an NFC that just saw the Lions beat the Vikings, anything is possible and Atlanta is still in the mix, no matter whether it’s deserved or not.

As for that loss, Evan and I recap it on the latest postgame podcast. Believe it or not, there are some positive takeaways from that ugly performance. Topics discussed:

  • The impressive first drive by the Falcons and why the running game performing well is a good sign for the remainder of the season
  • The mixed bag from Russell Gage and how his big performance was offset by a costly fumble
  • The frustrating comparison of Tom Brady having infinite pockets to pass out of while Matt Ryan was sacked 5 times
  • The numerous mistakes made on offense and why eliminating just a few would have made for a different looking game
  • The defense limiting the Bucs running game
  • Thicc-six!
  • So much more
