Chris Hope: Atlanta Falcons nearly 'a Super Bowl team' - NFL.com

For example, Chris Hope signed with us last year and said so. He's done it before, so he knows what it takes to get there. Tony G has also said that he wanted to go to the Falcons because he felt that we were going to get there someday in a televised interview with ESPN.

Most of us Falcon fans really feel like were just about there. February was the first time I've ever watched the Super Bowl and felt like we were better than both of the teams playing in it.

Bill Daly @The_dolla_billz @RSherman_25 In your opinion who was the best rookie corner last season?

If you were better, you would have been there!

No one was going to beat the ravens. Flacco is more mentally tough qb. He may not put up the stats Ryan does but he also plays on a team that requires teams to hit back. Its a mentality thing. You can't just throw long passes to your big weapons and expect the corners to be torched every time. Ryan doesnt take near as many hits as Flacco has. Flacco doesnt have any big weapons he started spreading the ball around like the best qbs do. And next year the falcons are not getting a ring in a blizzard bowl against Manning or Brady and it will be even worse if its the steelers because the sb in NJ highly favors them more than anyone due to their defense. But after this year teams know to run the ball and throw to their tightends when playing the falcons.

You don't lose games like that at your redzone knowing all you needed was to run the ball or get a fg and you let the 49ers get a turnover and you had another chance after that. The saints wouldnt lose in that situation. In fact that drive was nothing compared to the overtime drive where Brees had to get his team in fg range against a tough vikings defense. When falcons face that let me know because I don't believe Ryan will succeed.

2 players does not constitute "a lot" when you're dealing with a 53-man roster, just sayin' ... and 'nearly' only counts in horseshoes & hand grenades, eh?

We couldn't take a field goal... and don't you remember the Seattle game?? We drove ball down the field and got a game-winning field goal in less than 30 seconds.

Why do you think that we're so far away?

San Fran... yeah I'll say Atlanta was better but you guys did a horrible job and holding on to a 20 point lead...
Baltimore... NO way This was the Ravens year
Ray Ray could have ran on the field and shanked someone and the announcers would have just said
" Give it up for Ray Lewis everyone " ** applause**
Golden boy this year

Lack of leadership.
