Rev_Hal Posted December 27, 2011 Share Posted December 27, 2011 If you told me on day 1 that the Falcons would win 10 games, I would have been satisfied with that.But there are "eyeball" tests that dont show up in the stats. This is not a Super Bowl contending team yet, but we are young and moving in the right direction. As long as we continue to build upon 4 winning seasons, we will be fine.But it does concern me that Coach Smith called last night's game an abberation. It looked like a lot of what this season looked like. We are good, but not yet elite, and I hope the front office does not think we are elite. We are above average to good, but we are not ready to make a run deep in the playoffs.From where I sit, the Falcons:have problems with consistencydo not have the "killer instinct"are missing some pieces, especially on the defensive side of the ball.We aren't bad, but we are not going to contend for a title until those things are fixed.So, to answer my own question, I think we took a step back this year, and I have a twinge of disappointment. But 10 wins (if we beat the Bucs) is still a solid year. It was just not what I was expecting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
