When Mike Smith was head coach for the Falcons the Falcons would often play well all season and then lay a big egg in the playoffs or in win or go home type games. The Falcons got crushed by the Packers 48-21 after beating them in the regular season and earning the 1 seed in 2010. The Falcons got beat 24-2 by the Giants in the playoffs after their offense played well all year with Ryan, Jones, White, Tony G and Michael Turner. Then in 2014 the Falcons got beat 34-3 at home to Carolina in a winner goes to the playoffs game. We beat Carolina earlier that season and was 5-0 in division games until Carolina mauled us. My question is why do you think the Falcons struggled in playoff atmosphere under Mike Smith? And how can we avoid the same problem under Arthur Smith?
