The Atlanta Falcons are headed into their 47th season in the NFL. By most accounts, it’s been a rather unsuccessful time in the league. Admittedly the first 42 years could be looked at as “the painful growing period” of the Atlanta franchise, having limited pockets of success, but mostly mired in obscurity, poor decisions, and unwanted headlines.
However the last four years have brought new hope to a city that is
known for rising from it’s own ashes and beginning anew. For the first
time in Falcons history, there is a winning tradition, and expectations
of more than just pulling a “Big Ben” play out of their asses every once
in a while.
