It's No Longer Entertainment

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the Falcons as a fan since 73/74. I've seen some really really bad football, and some pretty good football. The problem has always been consistency and playing well on both sides of the ball at the same time.

Theoretically, we have a good QB and a decent run game to go with a playmaker receiver. With our anemic defense, the outcome of the games is predictable. With the O now playing just as poorly, it's painful to watch. The team plays without passion, without belief, and without confidence at the first sign of difficulty. IMHO, that's the difference from the start of the season and now. Until those things can be fixed, I don't see more than an 2 wins, and that's assuming a lot of luck.

This is exactly how I'm feeling right now. They're just not fun to watch. I don't really get any enjoyment out of it but I continue to watch anyway.

Yep. It's just out of habit for me now. I love the game of football, but the Falcons just don't do it for me these days. If all of our players played with Freeman's heart, I would feel differently. But something is just off in the culture, attitude, aura, or whatever else of this team. I can't put my finger on it, but it certainly isn't entertaining or inspiring. Edited by Power I

This thread X 1000. And it applies to all Atlanta teams, not just the Falcons. This fan base is starved for a winner. Most fans around here are emotionally charged college football fans. The environment is ripe for an aggressive, take-no-prisoners organization to step in and own this town.

Instead the Braves, Falcons and Hawks go after it with all of f the emotion and fire of an accounting firm. It's all process, system, rebuilding, etc.

F that. I want to be entertained. That means showing some real fire and the front offices acting like they care about more than franchise valuation. I'm fine with losses, but I want to see us go down firing.
