falconfanEST1989 Posted December 11, 2015 Share Posted December 11, 2015 MYSELF........I've sat back and read all the topics about who to blame, and yes TD, AB, KS, Ryan, Oline, Pass rush, are a big issue. but i decided to look in the mirror and take blame too...FOR WHAT?! you ask.. For being a biased fan..... The last time this team was good was Matt Ryans 3rd year.. the year we lost to the Packers in the Playoffs.. i think that game we were out played, the better team won.. that year was magical. we all complained about needing pass rush that year but never got it.. we did get JJ and i love me some JJ (PAUSE).. When i look Back at the past 4 years, 5 including this year, we were not very good.. We weren't "EXPLOSIVE" JJ rookie year, we were an average team with no pass rush, got beat in the playoffs scoring only 2 PTS. the 13-3 year was a mirage guys, 13-3 could've easily been 9-7. let me explainCam Got that 1st down against us in the 4th.. we got a favorable spot then they punt when they should've went for it.. Ryan throw a hail mary that Roddy catches to put us almost in fg range.. we win by 2. 30-28, 2 weeks later Ryan has a 3 into day against the 1-4 Raiders. but Asante takes an into 80 yards to the house with 2:20 left on the clock. puts us up by 7. raiders drive and score to tie with 40 sec. we get in FG range and win by 3. few weeks later Ryan has a 5 into day against the cards, And Fitz drops the ball on 4th and 2 at our 5 yard line. we win by 4. and then away agaist the Bucs Grimes makes an amazing diving into with the Bucs in fg range to seal our win by 1.. 4 games that the Falcons played like SHlT and we should've lost.. i won't even add the Seahawks game.y'all know what happened the last 2 years, that brings me to this year.. as a fan i knew we weren't a good team.. we didn't make the Splash in FACY, we didn't address major holes, but i still thought new coach new team.. Mr Blank is a COPY CAT owner.. Every teams explosive, so he wants to be explosive, then every team is a defensive juggernaut, so he wants to be a juggernaut.. Next year I'm not gonna put faith in the Falcons to be a great team that will contend for the Super Bowl , I'm just gonna hope they are better than this year.
