The Atlanta Falcons lost on the road to the Dallas Cowboys.
I’m sick. You’re sick. Trust me, we are all sick. What has become of this Atlanta Falcons team. The excitement for the return of sports and the NFL has quickly died for Atlanta Falcons fans. The state of Texas is just not kind to us.
This is the first time since 2007 that the Falcons have started 0-2. We all know how that season went. Head coach Bobby Petrino left a note to his players and ended up on TV screaming pig suey as he was introduced as the new University of Arkansas head coach.
However, the season also led to the Atlanta Falcons drafting Matt Ryan out of Boston College. Whether fans love him or hate him, he is one of the best players to ever put on the Falcons black and red and this franchise would be even more disastrous without him.
Remember, as much as you might not like, Matt, because he doesn’t run a 4.3/40, he is nearly 30 games over .500 as a starting quarterback and that is something that the Falcons have never had prior to Matt.
I know I said now is not the time to panic because it’s so early in the season, but right now, I am so panicking and hopeless as far as the rest of the season is concerned.
Get ready for the endless graphic that details the likelihood a team goes 0-2 to start the season and make the playoffs. Hint, it’s not a very good percentage. Maybe the Atlanta Falcons catch a break with the 7th seed, but even that seems like a long shot.
Let’s try and get into the highs and the lows from Week 2.
