Falcons lose safety for season, breaking incredible streak

The Falcons lost to the Saints Monday night and also lost rookie safety Shann Schillinger for the season, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

As injuries go, this shouldn’t be devastating.  Schillinger was a sixth-round pick that helped on special teams.

Still, the Falcons aren’t used to losing any players.  The Falcons haven’t made a single transaction since September 21.

That is a truly incredible streak, and helps provide one clue why the team has played so well this year.

  1. Wow, Philly has had SEVERAL injuries that went to IR and STILL managed to put a whoopin on ATL. Go figure.

  2. even with their lack of injuries, the falcons scare no one in playoffs. i doubt they win a game. btw, where was matty “ice” last night. looked more like matty froze!

    +++++++

    The beat Atlanta in the beginning of the season.

    The Bucs on the other hand, have 10 STARTERS lost for the season and were still close to beating Atlanta both times… considering their youth and the fact that they couldn’t possibly have any worse luck with injuries, it is safe to say that Tampa will be a major player in 2011 (if there is a 2011).

  4. 1922 —> 2009; AWESOME GAME!!!
    2009 —> Infinity; WWF & NFL…no difference! Pre-determined outcomes coupled with pansy-ass management makes it no longer fun to watch.

  5. more like now that the dam broke, they will start losing people.

    every time the announcers talk about some streak… like the falcons at home or turner not fumbling in 400 some touches… or how the saints havent kept anyone from scoring from a 1st down at the NO 1 yard line in (since 1998)… the streaks end.

    a hot team, great record, needs a loss late in november or early in december. then they can refocus and stop worrying about the all-holy streak. a rank upset or a home loss, all the better.

    That’s actually pretty funny considering that Minnesota just put a whoopin on Philly.

  7. I bet Atlanta is like Pittsburgh. They will both have Referees in the Pro Bowl representing their teams.

    How good are the Falcons receivers if they didn’t push off? We will never know.
