http://sportsglory.com/nfl/falcons/atlanta-falcons-3-bold-predictions-for-2015/42442

1. They Will Win the NFC South

Obviously this has to be one of the bold predictions about the upcoming season after coming up a bit short last year. They are going to have stiff competition with the Carolina Panthers, but the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still very much a question mark. Neither team has a great roster put together, but they both have some areas where they are going to be dominant.

Despite the question marks and the Panthers being a very dangerous team, the Falcons are going to take the next step and win back their throne on top of the division.

2. Dan Quinn Is Coach of the Year

While the Seattle Seahawks had some very impressive defensive players on their roster, Dan Quinn was able to put a scheme together that fit every player perfectly. He is a mastermind when it comes to the defensive side of the football, and is going to put a much better product on the field in Atlanta than Mike Smith did. Winning the Coach of the Year award isnt easy for rookie head coaches, but it is a feat that Quinn is more than capable of doing.

3. Tevin Coleman Is Top Three in Rookie of the Year Voting

There wasnt a ton of hype surrounding Indiana Hoosiers running back Tevin Coleman during the draft process this offseason, but he is going to be one of the best picks of the 2015 NFL Draft. Atlanta desperately needed help at the running back position with the aging Steven Jackson not getting the job done, and Coleman is going to bust through with a big season. He is a dynamic running back that is capable of making plays in the open field, and they are going to see big numbers from him immediately.

Needless to say, the Falcons and their fans are in for a very bitter battle throughout the regular season. They have the pieces put together to be a very competitive football team, and if they live up to their full potential are going to be in the postseason contending for a Super Bowl appearance.

I don't know man.I think outside of this board those would be considered bold predictions.

Coleman has already been talked of being a sleeper for OROY, most new coaches are usually considered for COY based on how they turn the team around etc, solid predictions,just not bold. We almost won the South last year,with the terrible coaching we had,this year we are Mich improved,while our competition has stated virtually the same. Edited by Falkonator

Exactly! I feel we made some nice additions to the team in the office season and with REAL coaches that can teach, we should see much improvement on both sides of the ball. I think we will surprise a lot of teams this year.

Truth be told, even as poor as we were last year, we had a shot at a winning record. A couple of Smitty gaffs, some odd play calling at bad times, killed a 9-6 season. Crazy!!!

So with an improved team on paper, a scheme program that seems to fit the current roster better, the sky can be the limit for us. Scary really.

Yeah I agree & I say that being as subjective as possible. The reason being mainly because every team got better during the off season, not just us.

I am hoping for the predictions to become reality & that all of our many off season changes/improvements will win us the NFCS.

A lot of you are writing Freeman off but I predict he beats out Coleman. Freeman has a tremendous work ethic. All i am gonna say is y'all will see. I am not gonna argue my point. Please do not get me wrong, I think Coleman is a great talent also I feel at this point Freeman is better at catching out the back field. Freeman is not as fast in the forty but I bet he can hang for the first 10-15 yards with any back in the league. Another reason is Freeman is more elusive while Coleman is just flat out a straight line burner who could go 90 yards in a blink of a eye. Another reason is Coleman has a serious health issue and the GA. Heat may cause him problems but lord i hope not but it has been said coaches will have to watch his workload.
