The Atlanta Falcons 2020 campaign is now officially over.
The Atlanta Falcons defense played excellent through three and half quarters until fatigue set in because the offense did absolutely nothing in the entire second half. Do not blame the defense for this loss, this one rest solely on coaching (yet again), and the offense.
The offense looked atrocious for the majority of the second half, wasting a great defensive effort from the other side of the ball.
The defense was on the field entirely too long, in the fourth quarter especially, and it was clear that they were gassed. This team, for whatever reason, just can’t put it together on both sides of the ball, which has been a problem since Super Bowl 51.
Everyone on the staff has to go right now because it is at the point where it is expected of this team to blow a lead, and that is just sad. Pretty much everything about this team is just pitiful.
The Atlanta Falcons are a broken team.
Like Jonathan Vilma said in the fourth quarter, this team lacks mental toughness and that lies solely on Dan Quinn, who clearly has no idea what he is doing.
As a fan, I do not look forward to watching this train wreck of a team every Sunday, which is something that, for the first time in my life, I can say. I never thought I wouldn’t care about an Atlanta Falcons game on a Sunday, but we have finally reached this point because it is tiring to see a team so talented looks so helpless and lost every week.
This team needs a major overhaul because it seems like the players have no idea what to do once the fourth quarter starts. The saddest part is, with six minutes left in the game, I grabbed my laptop and started writing this article because I already knew this was going to end in a loss.
The icing on the cake is that the Atlanta Falcons had the lead with 2:12 left, but you wouldn’t know it because the guys looked completely dejected.
They knew the game was over, and so did everyone at home.
