Changing the uniforms is a smart decision for the Atlanta Falcons
After back-to-back 7-9 seasons, the buzz around the Atlanta Falcons has dwindled and Mercedes-Benz Stadium continues to be half empty. With this uniform change, however, it seems as though the organization is ready to get the fans excited about Atlanta Falcons football once again.
When the Atlanta Falcons decided to bring Dan Quinn back, the decision was met with mixed reactions from fans. Back-to-back seasons of starting off the season slow have dwindled the fan support down drastically since back-to-back double-digit win seasons.
The Atlanta Falcons players love Quinn and the way they played for him after the bye week certainly played a part in his return. The coaching changes that he made after the bye week also played a key factor in the remarkable turnaround.
Even more changes were made after the season and now that the coaching staff is officially set, the team looks to rebound and continue the high level of play that they ended the season with.
This alone is not enough to change the mindset of the fans, however. The Atlanta Falcons announcing the uniform change is most certainly a way to get fans excited about the 2020 version of this team.
When the Atlanta Falcons are good, the stadium is packed. For example, the back-to-back playoff wins in 2016 en route to the Super Bowl saw some of the best crowds the Georgia Dome had ever seen for an NFL game. The great fan support and noise level are what Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been missing and the organization knows it.
The new coaching changes on defense, the upcoming NFL Draft, the announcement and future unveiling of new uniforms should get fans excited about the 2020 season. Whether that season will have a different outcome or not, one thing is for certain, the team is long overdue for new uniforms and it is a great way to kick-start a soft re-boot of the team to get fans invested into Atlanta Falcons football once again.
