Does the Gonzales trade mean the falcons should easily make the superbowl?

All depends on the defense. This draft will tell, our offense might be spectacular but look at the Broncos and Saints. they had the No.1 and 2 offense where did they finish. Broncos barely made the playoffs. We need a defense that can keep up. They don't have to be perfect just keep up. ;)

Lets not get ahead of ourselves.

It gives us the opportunity to use the chance to make an instant upgrade to our defence. Our season will live or die by how our defenders play next year. I think the playoffs looks like a minimum, we have a Colts style offence and even with a below average defence they won their division year in, year out before their eventual superbowl win.

If Decoud, Lewis, Nicholas, Biermann, Jackson and others become solid NFL players, and whoever we draft can play to a good level then we have a shot at going deep as crazy as it sounds. We need a playmaker in the secondary, because right now what sucks about our defence is that we only have one true playmaker. Jackson with his ball skills could be that guy depending on how he has evolved.

In any case, did anyone think it would be possible asking this question this time last year in anything other then jokey fashion.

It is always a hard fought battle. A freakin' marathon that takes all the mental toughness you can muster. This just gives us another tool to help us along the way. We have a lot of work to do, from coaches on down, just to figure out the best ways to use that new tool. A lot of new plays, plays that will change, etc. Not to mention the defensive side of the ball.

This just gives us great potential. But potential really ain't jacksh1t until you turn it into reality by working your azz off.

But these boys right here, they WILL work their azzes off, because this is a bunch of WINNERS! "Humble and focused", baby!
