Talent and coaching finally coming together and finally producing what we thought was a super bowl contender before the season started. 

It’s crazy how delicate a balance those two things really must strike for success.

This is the question that needs to be answered.  It's only been 2 games, but I cannot remember such a dramatic in-season turnaround for an NFL team

Reminds me of the 1997 Falcon team. Started out 1-7 and finished 6-2. Defense was ballin. Parlayed that into a 22-4 run and went to a Bowl the next year.

That's what I'm thinking. They figured it out. They're playing like a team with an identity now. Come in next year. Get you rest.

'97 season is before my time.  Was either side of the ball as atrocious as our defense is this season and turned it around to be complete world beaters?

Who would've even thought that two weeks ago that we would go to New Orleans AND Carolina and put up a combined 55 points while only giving up 12 with not one touchdown?  I'm still shaking my head but I am loving this! 

Trying to understand that is the equivalent of asking, "What is the meaning of life?"

They were adjusting to a new coach and Quarterback. Reeves and Chandler. They also added a great wide receiver named Tony Martin the next season.

Idk but they're super frustrating... too little too late. Still enjoying watching them, at least.

At least we don't have to rebuild. We know we have the talent. I still need to see how we play against the afc Jaguars and 49ers.

While some comparisons might make sense that sounds like a totally different team.  This is a group that has been together for years and has been to a Super Bowl and has some of the most talented players in the NFL.  And until the last 2 weeks they have massively underachieved.

Ikr. We go from looking like the worst team in the NFL to the most dangerous team in the NFL. We go from the "get right" team to play to a team nobody would want to play.
