The Atlanta Falcons have gone through a lot since 2007. Not as much as Walter White but they have indeed broken bad and are ready to climb to the top.
It wasnt cancer but it wasn’t good when 2007 rolled around for the Falcons. Michael Vick being imprisoned and Bobby Petrino leaving half way through the season was nothing but bad news on everyone involved. It was a season full of frustration and it was just plain embarrassing to watch. They had no business finding any success the following year but that is exactly what they found.
It was instant success and it was not a fluke since Atlanta has been consistently good ever since. Thomas Dimitroff changed everything for the Atlanta Falcons by taking risks and pushing the right buttons at the right times. He showed he is not afraid to make a big move in 2011 when he traded up to get Julio Jones, but his ability to take a smart risk is not what makes him similar to Mr. White. His intellect is profound he has been so good at growing the organization, knowing what guys to keep what guys to lose and who to draft. He definitely came to Atlanta with a plan but i don’t even think he thought it would work out as well as it has. It is safe to say he’s the brains of this operation and we wouldn’t be where we are today without him.
Most of the credit has to go to the guy under center. Now Matt Ryan is in no way similar to Crystal Meth but he is the key to the team’s success. Matty Ice is very bad (good) and you bet I would go through that mess all over again because it gave us him. So we have the best Meth so why aren’t we on top yet? Well because it’s a process, it took Walter 5 seasons to be on top but he got there. No one is satisfied with just being successful in the regular season we want to be the best and with this team that seems inevitable.
The Atlanta Falcons have seen what the worst case scenario is they have been at the bottom and gone through it all. Now they have the resources to get it done and I am hoping in season 6 that happens since they have already broken bad.
