3 Things the Atlanta Falcons learned in unfair loss to Tampa
By Nick Halden
1. Arthur Smith will turn the Atlanta Falcons into contenders
The Atlanta Falcons are dealing with over $70-million in dead cap and have one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the league in Marcus Mariota. Despite this, the team has an argument they could be 5-0 on the season with each game coming down to the final moments. With a young roster and with few proven stars this speaks to the level of gameplan and how hard this team is playing for Arthur Smith.
Smith hasn’t been perfect but he has proven he has an elite ability to get the most out of a subpar roster and adjust and mount comebacks against both the Rams and Bucs giving his team a chance to execute and win against far superior rosters.
All you can ask from Arthur Smith he has delivered this season. While it hasn’t been perfect Smith’s belief in his team shows in his decision making and his team feeds off of it and will continue to shock teams this season.
