After Thursday night’s defeat, there are more questions raised following an absolute dominating effort by the New Orleans Saints. For the Atlanta Falcons, is this the sign they haven’t turned the corner as some may say?

The answer to this question is not simple as the Falcons need to improve, but there is enough evidence to show the season isn’t doomed, and likewise, there are many reasons why Atlanta will right the ship.

In the NFL, losing three to four games is pretty common for Super Bowl teams, and if you check the history books, the only teams to go undefeated in the season in NFL history are the 1972 Dolphins and the 2006 Patriots.

While the Dolphins continued their torrid pace and captured the Super Bowl, an unblemished Patriots team that looked head and shoulders above everyone else came crashing down in the Super Bowl against the New York Giants.

Therefore, the quest for perfection is a novel idea, but it very rarely indicates playoff success. So before you start burning your jerseys and calling for the head of Dan Quinn, let’s take a look at why the Falcons are not doomed, and some reasons why there is still much to hope in after this loss.
