ol'_dirty2 Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 Look guys,As a Falcons Lifer...it's tough to get past the games that we (in our minds) thought we should have won. We don't just think about the loss that just occured, we relfect on other losses during the season, last season, and all the way back to the early seasons. It's tough to seperate the present from the past when trying to look into the future. But as a Falcons fan we have to realize a few things.Winning is a new thing around hereSure we've won games and had winning seasons, but we havent put it all together in a back to back fashion. So this is uncharted territiory here.We won games last year that we shouldn't have13-3 was amazing, but it came a couple years too early. You can debate which games we shouldn't have won but the fact remains that we were NOT ready for that much success.We have to adjust to being fans of a winning franchiseI keep expecting the big letdown...I admit it!!! It's because the small and medium letdowns keep occuring right? Look, I'm the first one to admit that there is a darkside to being a Falcons fan. I try to resist the darkside, but it beckons...it's persistent...but it's a thing of the past.I'm trying to move into the future where we EXPECT to win...we EXPECT to be great...we EXPECT to get to the postseason every season...and we EXPECT to contend for Division, Conference, and Superbowl Title on a yearly basis.It's coming!!! We're not there, but sheet!!! Look at where we used to be. I'm proud to be a Falcons Fan!"Still I Rise"- Maya AngelouYou With Me? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
