MasterBateser Posted April 5, 2015 Share Posted April 5, 2015 (edited) NFL Media research reports that since 1990 at least four new teams made the playoffs each year, and the Falcons are among the teams predicted to continue the trend in 2015.Still months away from the start of training camp for the 2015 season, NFL fans have likely already started making playoff predictions regarding their favorite team.According to NFL Media Research, every year since 1990, when the league adopted the 12-team format, the playoffs have included four new teams. During the past 10 seasons, that average climbed to more than five new teams per season.A lot has transpired since the Falcons missed the playoffs last season, including the hiring of new head coach Dan Quinn, several new coaches and the following free agents:DE Adrian ClaybornOLB Justin DurantOLB Brooks ReedLB O'Brien SchofieldCB Phillip AdamsOL Jared SmithG Mike PersonWR Leonard HankersonTE Tony MoeakiTE Jacob TammeWhile the Falcons still have the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft and eight picks to continue adding talent and depth to their roster, NFL.com believes Atlanta can be playoff bound, thanks to star players like quarterback Matt Ryan, wide receiver Julio Jones and a defense keyed by Quinn's wisdom and experience. http://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/article-1/Falcons-Predicted-to-Shine-Bright-for-Quinn-/487d7b05-1001-4641-af74-db0c58866f26 The pic I added on my own.
