Not everyone is a believer in what the Atlanta Falcons accomplished this offseason.
The Atlanta Falcons, and their numerous moves this offseason that resulted in 18 former first-round picks on the roster, apparently made no noise as people across the country start to make their post-opt-out season predictions for the NFC South.
We get it, the Falcons didn’t add Tom Brady or Rob Gronkowski nor are they media darlings like Michael Thomas and Drew Brees but they did have the best offseason among the NFC South and addressed every need they had coming into 2020.
Fox Sports media personality Colin Cowherd, thinks the Atlanta Falcons will be worse in 2020 than they were in 2018 and 2019. He believes that the Falcons end results in 2020 will be a 6-10 record and last place in the NFC South.
Even though the Panthers are clearly tanking for Trevor Lawrence, he believes that they will go 7-9.
Cowherd isn’t the only one that thinks that the Atlanta Falcons have a third straight losing season.
Lombardi Avenues Freddie Boston, published his 2020 NFL record predictions for every team this week and he thinks that the Atlanta Falcons finished the season under .500 and will end up 7-9 for the third consecutive year.
Unfortunately, Boston didn’t give much insight into his reasoning for his thoughts on the Falcons but it seems like he simply likes the moves that Tampa made and likes the Saints roster and schedule more.
Maybe we just have too much optimism about the 2020 Atlanta Falcons between the fantastic new uniforms, the roster additions, and the fact that the franchise had no one opt-out for 2020 but this team will win at least 10 games in 2020. If they don’t win the NFC South outright, they are still good enough to secure at least a Wild Card playoff spot in 2020.
