The Falcons lost the season opener to the Vikings 28-12 yesterday and it was really over before it started.

After a sack and a blocked punt on the first drive, the Vikings scored a TD through the air.

Hugh Douglas and John Fricke spoke on Monday morning about a slow start that saw the team fall behind 21-0 by halftime.

"I don't understand why you throw the ball the very first play," says Hugh. "I don't think that Koetter stayed with the run long enough."

Hugh Douglas continued, explaining that the Falcons should have known someone else besides Julio was going to have to be the guy for the Falcons offense.

"It was going to be that type of day. Nobody was going to let Julio get his at the beginning of the game. The dude just got paid, I'm not about to let Julio Jones beat me. You didn't feature anybody, you didn't run the ball enough for me."
