3 Lasting takeaways from the Atlanta Falcons week two loss
By Nick Halden
3. Atlanta is going to be entertaining this season
To say the Falcons’ first two weeks have been entertaining is a vast understatement. While both weeks have ended in sickening fashion for Atlanta Falcons fans objectively the Falcons have played two of the more entertaining games in the league this season. This speaks to the mentality that Arthur Smith is preaching and what this team believes.
The Falcons don’t believe they are a bad team, they believe they have a chance every week to make a play and turn the franchise in the right direction. You can see it in the hustle and effort the team puts in even when they were down 28-3 on Sunday.
Atlanta’s effort and willingness to try and find a big play were obvious despite the score and what will make this team dangerous down the stretch. To say this team is going to be entertaining all season long isn’t the same as saying the wins will pile up. This Atlanta Falcons team still isn’t going to win as many games as they believe they can. However, their tenacity is going to result in more than one upset this season and promise entertaining games even when they are clearly overmatched.
