He was entering his 100th NFL game with far more yards than any other NFL receiver and could have had the mark for receptions, too, if he had reeled in nine catches. Instead, he finished the game with just four grabs and 62 yards (and obviously, no touchdowns) as questions started to swirl around the offense again.That’s not how you celebrate a milestone.

Maybe you want to point at an offensive line that let the team down, or Duke Riley for missing tackles, or Dan Quinn for his coaching and refusal to consider roster additions Youth Keanu Neal Jersey , or Matt Ryan for basically any reason at all.But that blame game, while worthwhile if it helps us get through the week, doesn’t get us much of anywhere, as Cory Woodroof argued. It also can’t bring back any injured Falcons, and while Atlanta could have fallen short in any number of ways this season, we’re not sitting in this position without those ailments. Talk it out, folks Sometimes you just really need to get in a room, virtual or otherwise, and talk through a game like that with your buddies. We certainly did.
