Falco4 Posted November 14, 2010 Share Posted November 14, 2010 I have to admit, I've only been a fan of the falcons since 2008 when they drafted my college QB. For the past 3 years, we have received little to no recognition for anything. Yea, I understand that we havent WON anything yet, but neither have the cowboys, who should have their own **** channel. I know that one of the reasons why we don't get any press is that we're not flashy or controversial. But there has to be something else. The teams that get coverage are those that battle back from adversity. the saints were the media darlings after katrina, the raiders are all of a sudden the best team in the AFC after their tumultuous coaching changes and QB instability. But if there's any team that has overcome the most adversity, it's got to be us! Vick get's caught for dog fighting, Petrino leaves during the season... we should be on ESPN 24/7 for our resurgence. there should be cameras everywhere documenting the rise of this spectacular team.One argument might be that we are a relatively smaller market compared to other teams. Is Tampa Bay a bigger market than Atlanta? Why are the Bucs getting all these props for being a "young upstart team"? Why is Freeman (although he is becoming better and better) getting more recognition for his late-heroic comebacks? If there's any team that should be identified as young with a QB that has a history for getting it done in the final minutes, it should be us! There's no debate.Another reason could be that the U.S. doesn't like Atlanta, for whatever reason. This also doesn't make sense since everyone and their mothers were rooting for the Falcons in the superbowl against the favored Broncos.I know we ask this question a lot, but I've been dissecting this for a long time, and I can't think of any logical reason why we are not getting the slightest bit of praise or respect. I'm trying to look at it from different perspectives, but it all doesn't add up. Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
