Bye weeks are normally good times for teams to reassess their season outlooks. The Falcons at 2-1 have a great chance to make it to the playoffs, but divisional rival, New Orleans Saints, may have the upper hand in this race. The Saints have been extremely dominant this season, wielding an unstoppable passing game, explosive running game, and a defense that knows how to step up when it matters.

As a result, the Saints are 4-0 and the Falcons are 1 1/2 games behind them. Looking around the league right now, the Falcons have the last spot in the wild card race - which is not a good sign for pre-season Superbowl favorites.

Where will the Falcons ultimately end up this season?

Who had us as preseason Superbowl favorites?

Edit: Voted for the thing that matters most to me ... back to back winning seasons, but I doubt a 9-7 is good enough for a WC.

The Falcons have played 3 games and you've penciled them in for the last wild card spot? There's 13 more weeks.

A.) Did someone really pick us as the Superbowl favorite? Who?

B.) How can you pin us in the last spot in the wild card race after 4 weeks? 2-1 has us right in the thick of things.

How come the Saints wore white at home today?

Hey a wildcard team knocked off a super dominant 18-0 team to win the Super Bowl a few years ago.

A 14-2 underdog knocked off a heavily favored and very dominant 15-1 team to advance to a Super Bowl in 1998...

Just an idea. If you want to hide the fact that your VICK75 you should probably quit with putting ******* ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s around every other word. I see you've toned it down but one managed to sneak into the title.

It's a shame - I really had high hopes for this team. This looked like it would be that year for the 09 Falcons, but reality has slapped us right across the face and now we're 1.5 behind the division lead with only 13 more games in the season. We have to win out from here to even have a SHOT at the wildcard.
