Did the slide begin with Blank?

It is probably just coincidence but it seems to me that the Falcons have been on a downhill slide since Blank bought the team. It seems like only yesterday that the Falcons were one of the better teams, one which you could always count on being in every game. Even though, here in Houston, getting a Falcons games is a rarity, I never missed a national game. Today, watching a Falcons game is a painful experience, not even the old reliables are performing. One could blame coaching but the slide spans several coaches.......................the only constants being Blank and McKay. Am I wrong?

Um, yes, I would say you are wrong. This slide started roughly 40 years ago, and it has been a long, strange, downhill trip every year since that has spanned a couple of owners.
