"Oh no. We suck again!"
Karri Ramo stopped 15 of 17 for the loss before giving way to Jonathan Boutin who fared no better stopping 11 of 13. Right about this time last year the Falcons plummeted from playoff contention deep into the division basement. The team has now fallen to just 1 game over .500 and desperately needs to stop the bleeding tomorrow night at Worcester. The Falcons seem to have reached a fork in the road this season. We'll see what path they choose as a team.
