The Atlanta Falcons have a promising season ahead of them. Luckily for the team, they are the favorites to win the NFC South.

You heard it here first. The Atlanta Falcons will be the winners of the NFC South.

This Atlanta Falcons squad has an excellent opportunity in front of them. They have the chance to make up for their devastating loss against the Patriots in the Super Bowl. They have the chance to be seen as a new NFL dynasty. They also have the chance to rewrite how players see joining the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons just have to play hard every down and capitalize on every chance they get.

That said, it isn’t easy for a team to have all of their players give it their all. It will be the job of this coaching staff to make sure if things start trending in the wrong direction that they are able to refocus the players and turn a corner.

It may seem like an easy job to help the players recover if the season starts badly. However, it is not as easy as it appears. When the Falcons’ grip on the Super Bowl started being loosened by the New England Patriot, this coaching staff failed to rally the team’s morale and hold on to the lead. Obviously, it is hard to relate what happened in one game two seasons ago to how this staff will respond now. It does highlight the importance of a quick turnaround.

The Falcons have a great chance at winning the NFC. Both the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to be bottom dwellers this season. Of the teams, the Falcons play this season, only the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles look like teams that could push the Falcons around.
