They bought themselves some short-term good will with that "Rise Up" ad campaign. No really, I'm being serious. Media people were thinking like, OK, they bought some ads, big advertising campaign, commercials, billboards, celebrities-- don't think that media people don't see that stuff and know what that's all about. Even if the ad campaign dollars are not going directly in their pocket, the intelligent people in media know what an ad campaign is about. It's a code language they all speak. So these media people figured, OK, big ad campaign, we'll play along and give them some love. In 2010, you could literally see, how the "Falcons are really for real" type articles started showing up in the national media, before the season even started, the same exact time as the ad campaign began.


That love is all long gone now, the ad campaign is over, and the media types who hyped and crowned the Falcons because of the "Rise Up" ad campaign are starting to feel like idiots, after what happened to them with the Packers last year, and some of the really big games the Falcons laid big fat eggs in this year. So I think we are starting to see some of the major media types backing off the Falcons, and kind of playing them down, even turning on them, now that the slick ad campaign is over.

Whatever the media says bad about the clown they got a long, long time before they could even think of catching up to the Saints Nation.

Last I heard; game-time temperature is supposed to be in the low 40's with a chance of rain/winterly mix...

Look. The league wants big offensive numbers and star QBs. Sports writers, like John Clayton for example, need more big time players so they can write about them.

Clayton and his brethren at ESPN have done everything possible to convince us that Matt Ryan is elite.

Some times you just have to watch the game, which, clearly, many of these tools do not do.

I agree with you 100%. I'm just saying, read what I said above, about media people "understanding" an advertising campaign, getting the signal on it, like the "Rise Above" media blitz was designed to do. It was selling the media to buy into it as well as the public. The dollars don't have to be going directly into the sports writers' own pocket, that doesn't matter - they are intelligent enough to know it when they see it. And now the media people who got played by the advertising campaign, to sell the Falcons as elite, they are starting to realize that it makes them look bad, and we are watching them jump off the bandwagon.
