And here I was thinking that we would never pass the 115 mark! Thanks to all of those who turned out to cast your vote on when the Falcons will drop a game. 8 of you missed the mark this weekend, as the Falcons survived their Sunday night contest against the Dallas Cowboys. My guess is that the Falcons will lose to the Buccaneers on the road, and that result finished third in our poll. Our top vote-getter was next week’s contest against the New Orleans Saints, with 36% of the vote.

Here is the final tally from last week.

Poll #12: When will the Falcons finally lose a game?

Week 10 @ New Orleans (36%, 63 Votes)

Week 15 versus New York Giants (23%, 39 Votes)

Week 12 @ Tampa Bay (14%, 25 Votes)

No losses; 19-0, Baby! (10%, 18 Votes)

In the playoffs (2%, 4 Votes)

Week 13 versus New Orleans (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 173

This week’s poll focuses on the drama now surrounding “America’s Team.” While Like Ghandi But Taller’s (LGBT) article last week found hope and excitement in the sporadic performances of Tony Romo and the Cowboys, the truth is that the Cowboys are now playing Russian Roulette with their playoff chances. Jason Garrett seems to be less than proficient in managing games, and Jerry Jones doesn’t seem to be nearly as capable in the GM role as he is in the mode of owner. After last night’s loss, even Jerruh was locked out of the Cowboys’ locker room. While the 3-5 Cowboys have the 3rd best passing attack in the league, their ground game ranks a woeful 29th, and putting the game in the hands of Tony Romo has as often as not been a recipe for disaster. While Romo ranks fifth in passing yards, he has a 82.2 passer rating, which places him 24th in the league with just 10 touchdown passes to go with his 13 interceptions.

Thus, our poll for this week:

Poll #13: Will the Dallas Cowboys make the playoffs this season?

As you can imagine, this poll only has two possible answers, so visit our right sidebar and cast your vote.
