Falcons Fan MVP

What's your opinion of the Falcons 23-7 loss to the Patriots in 2017?

We’re the only NFC South team without a win over Belichick and we’ve never beaten Brady once. Probably won’t ever now. It’s unacceptable. The Patriots first 4 matchups against us (2001, 2005, 2009, 2013) were against bad or mediocre Falcons teams. 2016-17 Super Bowl was our best and only shot against them with a 25 point lead. Should have kept beating them like we did in 1998 in New England which was the last time we beat the Patriots. Between 1980-1998, we were 6-1 vs the Patriots. Since 2001 we are 0-6. Since 2001, only 2 Falcons teams have had a better record than the Patriots. The 2002 Falcons were 9-6-1 and the Patriots were 9-7. The 2012 Falcons were 13-3 and the Patriots were 12-4. I believe only the 2012 Falcons could have beaten Brady & Belichick in Foxborough or at home in the Dome. The 2016 Falcons could win a regular season home game against the Patriots.

It was pathetic and typical of this franchise and ATL sports in general. 

Our teams fold like lawn chairs instead of over coming adversity.

Boston as a sports town has historically owned Atlanta mentally and physically. Whenever Atlanta beats Boston it’s always meaningless, but when Boston beats Atlanta it’s in the BIG ONE on the biggest stage in front of the bright lights when it matters most.
