Yes.  If we hire the right people, draft the right players, pick up the right FAs, then yes.  Absolutely.  SF had a horrific season last year and are the only undefeated team in the NFL.

I'm gonna go with "Sure, why not?". After attending the 2016 season opener, I would have laughed at you on the way out if you'd told me we were going to the Super Bowl (heck, I would have done the sam

No

Well, if we thought that we were a contender this year, then i wouldn´t get my hopes up for the next season. Beside the obviously reconstruction of management the only focus point that i have for the next season is to built up is what we call a "pass rush". A pass rush is a very uncommon phenomena on this team, but since all the other teams have or at least try to have a pass rush, we wont see any improvement in terms of winning numbers on this team. 

As i see it OL needs experience and chemestry, but i also think that we need to add an veteran once again in FA. Hopefully FO gets it right like they did with Mack.

I don't think the odds are GREAT. But get in some coaches who can actually utilize our talent and better cover our deficiencies, hit on some high draft picks, and it's not outside the realm of possibility.

Probably yes if everything goes our way and we nail the coaching staff and draft. I don't think we should be aiming for a 2020 championship run though. Our biggest problem for the last few years has been that we've always thought we were one or two pieces away from being super bowl bound. Personally I think we should be aiming for 2021 - trim the fat and let the young guys take their lumps next season.

Anything is possible. Desperately need the right HC and DC to even talk seriously about it. This defense is a total wreck. You basically have no worthwhile scheme and about five players to rebuild with. Realistically I think it will be two years before this team finishes above .500 again. Maybe we can at least get back to the play-offs in '23 or '24.

The offense definitely looked best all year last week with Schaub running it.. Whoever called plays last week needs to this weekend and we'll see what we have on offense

I truly believe if AB seriously wants it and is willing to do whatever it takes to getting it done no matter who it may or may not hurt (including himself) IF he hires the RIGHT PEOPLE, have a great draft, pick the right FA's and injuries don't  Decapitate us than we can. The NFL is different these days, injuries happen so often that the whole Complexion of a team and the standings could change at a minutes whim. The F O can start building for next year right now BUT DQ and TD are going to try to save their jobs and reps so we'll win 3 more games which will move us out of a Top 3 high draft pick spot. DQ will stubbornly play his guys instead of giving players like Ollison, Grace, Senar, Larkin, Hageman, TBJ, Gono a chance. (He might find a baller) so it probably won't happen.

I've been a Falcons fan since the early 90's and the Falcons have never missed the playoffs more than 3 years in a row since I've been a fan.

That's why if they are 100 percent sure Dan Quinn isn't coming back next year they should have fired him.
