It's kind of humorous to read the meltdowns involved after Falcon's losses. Don't get me wrong I feel your pain, your frustration, your anger. But what I find funny (as I thought about things yesterday) is how many of you will start or even comment on a thread that has a link back to another teams boards so that everyone can gloat at their misery etc for their team. Yeah that seems funny don't it. This falcon team has no room to be talking about any other teams fans. Because to be honest, we are right up there with them ....we whine we cry we moan and groan. And I wouldn't be shocked if we starred on some of their MB's threads. You know what? I don't care. At the end of the day I am a Falcon fan. Have been all my life. I'm 52 years old and have seen it all (except a superbowl win). I am glad the days of 3-13 and 5-11 season are gone. I'm glad to have seen my birds in the superbowl. Some people never see their teams there. But I'm a longsuffering fan who says Bullcrap. That's not enough. I sit and wonder if we will ever win one. This maybe next year mentality is old. VERY old. I guess when you get a taste of success and that success isn't year in and out like say New England ( hate them ) Then the TASTE makes you want it more.Especially if you have suffered through the 70's 80's and saw a little success here and there. But not enough to feel justified for being a fan. The fans in New England they don't feel this frustration anymore. They can say "maybe next year" and mean it. We can't. We are fricking Falcon fans. It seems like there is always going to be something that keeps us from getting what we want. Is it a curse. Do we believe our players are better than what they actually are? I don't know. I try to look on the positive side. And actually posted stats for showing that our defense was ranked 10th. Well , that was a bad idea. How dare anyone have something positive to say. It wasn't about giving the defense a pass for not getting to the QB. I tried to give a silver lining. And obviously some of you cant handle any positive after two losses in a row and most likely three. That's cool i don't fault you guys for venting. I've been there. I guess I have been a fan so long maybe I just expect to suck. And we do. The NFL seems to be out of Sark's league. Our coordinators don't seem to know how to call a game on either side of the ball. Lot's of bonehead plays on the defense kept the offense on the field. I mean really Jarret? I'm a Falcon fan. I can't change it. It's in my blood. But at some point you get to the point where you wonder if it's worth the heartache. In 1999 I laid the Braves down and never picked them back up.I couldn't take it anymore. I doubt I could ever do that with the Falcons. But they don't make it easy. Do they?
