Jets reporters are strangely confident that the Falcons will be terrible
The Atlanta Falcons are in the middle of joint practices and with this time of the year, you can always count on seeing overreactions about different teams and players, usually, that comes from preseason games.
However, this time it is coming from Jets reporters after watching the Falcons in joint practices.
Some Jets reporters are weirdly obsessed with calling the Atlanta Falcons a horrible team despite covering a team that has not made the playoffs in over a decade
The Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets have combined for joint practices leading up to their preseason matchup on Monday night.
Again, these are practices, they are not even real games, but that has not stopped reporters for the Jets from making final conclusions as to what the Falcons will be this season, the same reporters who haven’t watched this team make the playoffs since 2010.
Makes total sense, reporters covering a team that had four wins, who were outscored by 194 points, and whose largest margin of victory was seven points in 2021, talking crap — seems totally validated.
Here is more from another Falcons reporter:
So, this is not just one guy talking smack about Atlanta, it is multiple reporters saying that the Falcons will be the worst team in the league in 2022.
They are only seeing the bad and not seeing all the good that the Falcons have been doing in practice:
A team that held the fourth-overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft is talking smack on a team that beat them last year and had three more wins than they had last season — yes, the Falcons had a bad season, but the Jets were significantly worse.
What in the world would these guys know about a good team?
There are also videos out there of the Falcons’ undrafted free agent wide receiver Jared Bernhardt beating the Jets’ fourth-overall pick Sauce Gardner. That means the fourth-highest drafted player in the 2022 NFL Draft cannot cover a player who wasn’t even drafted, but yet the Jets are the ones talking?
Luckily for the Falcons, even if they have been practicing bad, they can get their revenge on Monday by dominating in a real game — yes, it is preseason, but it still shows more than a couple of joint practices.
Anyways, I personally may need to recruit these Jets reporters to help me make my NFL power rankings because apparently, they know how good or how bad a team will be based on two practices three weeks before the regular season has even started, man, must be nice.
