The Atlanta Falcons continue to be the laughing stock of the league
The Atlanta Falcons are still the reigning champions of blowing large leads.
The Atlanta Falcons blew a 20-point lead, a 15-point lead, and a 9-point lead, proving yet again that they are the most consistent franchise in the league when it comes to blowing leads. It is hard to argue that this organization isn’t a joke.
It is honestly astonishing how this franchise continues to find ways to lose and it is infuriating to know that this team has enough talent to win, but continues to choke away victories.
Let’s discuss the defense first. Holy hell this defense, especially the secondary, is atrocious. After that first quarter, the defense looked dazed and confused (yes this is a Led Zeppelin reference) and Isaiah Oliver continues to prove he is trash. As Jon Harbaugh said in 2014, “We couldn’t cover a corpse with a wet blanket.”
The Atlanta Falcons lack discipline under Dan Quinn.
It is hard to comprehend the lack of discipline this team has to have to not even know to jump on the ball during an onside kick attempt. I would like to say that I am shocked at how the Atlanta Falcons lost this game, but, unfortunately, I am not shocked.
Seeing this team blow big leads has become a staple of this organization and I am honestly shocked when the Atlanta Falcons actually hold onto a lead.
These coaches have to go as soon as possible because clearly, they aren’t right for this organization. Dan Quinn should have been fired two years ago and Raheem Morris is clueless. Giving up 38 points and then 40 points in back-to-back weeks are laughably bad and the secondary has no idea what is going on most of the time.
Sure, this is a long season and we are only two games in, but this team is clearly very poorly coached and in need of a major overhaul because you can’t win games giving up 35 plus points a game.
This game isn’t only on the defense though, as the offense made several mistakes like dropped touchdowns, an underthrown touchdown, and settling for field goals.
Overall, this is one of the ugliest losses in the history of the franchise and it has more than likely already put a nail in the coffin of the 2020-21 season, as well as the coaches on this staff.
Good ole’ Atlanta Falcons, you never fail to disappoint us. Strap in everyone, this is going to be yet another long and disappointing ride.
