Atlanta Falcons: Lessons learned from previous offseasons
By Curtis Hobbs
Every team will have more failures than success stories when it comes to off-season acquisitions, but, for the Falcons, they appear to be on a downward trend in “luck” when it comes to their talent evaluations and how these players fit the mold of what this team should be.
Dan Quinn will join the front office as they scope across the NFL looking for help with this roster in dire need of an influx of talent. Will it be enough to return back to ways of the early Dimitroff years when the Falcons spearheaded the free agent market and made countless moves that made Atlanta a playoff contender year after year?
Next: Jake Matthews and the resurgent season
We all hope that the misses in the off-season acquisitions over the past two seasons aren’t foretelling of what’s to come this year, but, if they are, there’s a high probability that the Falcons will continue to regress in their on-field performance. But, if they can get one or two impact players in the market, then this team could be in the playoff race as soon as next year with a little help.
