Atlanta up 14-0 in first quarter

The Falcons have now scored on each of their first two possessions, and they lead 14-0 after a one-yard Michael Turner plunge with 6:51 still left in the first quarter.

Jimmy Clausen has yet to throw a pass for Carolina -- which fumbled on its first offensive play and went 3-and-out on its second series -- and the Falcons already have what should be an insurmountable lead against the NFL's worst offense.

The Falcons' key play was a third-down conversion from Matt Ryan to Harry Douglas that went for 46 yards as Douglas beat rookie Robert McClain down the sideline (but not my much; Ryan's throw was perfect).

After that, it took Atlanta three runs from the 9-yard line to score. Turner fumbled on one and Jordan Senn recovered, but Turner was ruled down on the field before the fumble and, after a John Fox challenge, the call was upheld.

Thats ok. The season has been over for awhile anyway. Let's just wait it out till Johnny is gone & start next year with a new coaching staff & basically a new team & see what happens!
