Re: Once-downtrodden Falcons now among NFL's best

They benefited from our situation without question. If the tables were turned, hey that's life, but no way could I feel like we were some great team. Fortunate yes, they are seizing the moment I'll give them that much but facts are facts.

They have squanderd opportunity after opportunity and that falls on coaching. That also trickles down to the players. Their star RB gets a DUI and their receivers who have never done anything are running their mouths like they have already won 2 titles. All they have done is win a handful of game in a row. Big deal. There is still a lot of football left and if anyone wants to go down memory lane at one point we won 8 games in a row and then failed to make the playoffs.

Won a handful of games in a row, but they need to wake up and smell the coffee that none of those opponents are really playoff contenders either except maybe San Diego.

Worst is the fact they have been lucky as **** to beat 3-4 of those teams.

It's amazing that any Saints fan could go on about "luck" after their 2009 campaign.

Equally as amazing that any Falcons fan can claim dominance with the 7th easiest schedule in the league.

You realize that includes divisional games? Naturally that means the higher ranked teams in the division the previous years are going to appear to have a much weaker schedule than the rest of their division right?

A schedule includes ALL games. Yes, it did dawn on me that divisional games were a part of the schedule. I never said the Falcons has a choice in picking their schedule, only that is is pretty damn weak. Reasoning for your schedule has nothing to do with how weak it is.

This was your year to play the AFC West, the weakest division in the league. They were a .500 division last year and thus far a .500 division at best this year, also being the weakest again in terms of record.

It is what it is... accept that. You cant defend it.

All you can do is play the schedule you're given, and so far we're undefeated. We could be 1-4 after all.
