The Atlanta Falcons have seemingly hit rock bottom
This is about as bad of a stretch that a team can go through, so leave it up to the Atlanta Falcons to be the team that goes through it.
The team is coming off of two defeats in which they were non-competitive, especially on offense. Even with a new coaching staff and many new faces, it is simply inexcusable. No team in the NFL should look as lost as the Falcons currently do.
Things certainly feel like they could not get worse for the Atlanta Falcons
This has been a brutal week for the Falcons, they have been anything but an NFL team.
They could not stop the Cowboys from scoring and they could not score virtually any points against Dallas or New England. It has been two games and this team that is supposed to be guided by the offense has scored a grand total of three points.
Arthur Smith has a whole ton of issues to figure out. He is an offensive-minded head coach, so we all know that he is taking this personally. He knows a lot of the blame lies on his shoulders.
This offense has shown that they may be the worst in the league and it all comes down to the fact that they cannot block a soul. Jalen Mayfield, Matt Hennessy, and Kaleb McGary have now shown us numerous times that they should not be starting, but yet here we are with no better options.
This is a mess of a team, no getting around that. They have a more than capable quarterback who basically has one guy to throw to—Kyle Pitts—while dealing with four guys in his face off of the snap. While the defense has been so up and down that you never know what you are going to get.
This is just about rock bottom for Atlanta. The good news is that they may only be able to go up from here. We are all already used to watching an offense that cannot score, so it either gets better or stays the same.
