The Atlanta Falcons may be leaving Washington with a loss but they shouldn’t hang their heads low as there is a lot to be proud of, so much so that the opposing head coach had some strong praise for them.
Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera who used to be a division rival head coach commended the Falcons and how bright their future is.
Washington’s head coach sees a bright future for the Atlanta Falcons
This year, the Atlanta Falcons have been a different team. Sure, they may not have as many wins as we would like but they are proving to be a much-improved team overall.
They came up four-yards short of a win in Washington as the ball was tipped and intercepted. If the defender hadn’t put his hand up, we would be in a much different situation. Nevertheless, what happened, happened, there is no changing it and the only thing we can do is move forward.
Ron Rivera, who used to be the head coach of the division-rival Panthers, made sure to praise the team he just beat in his postgame interview.
It is so good to hear that from another head coach. Let’s be honest, if he didn’t truly believe that, he would have never said it. How often do you see head coaches go out of their way to mention how bright the future is for the opposition?
It should help the coaching staff and players continue to build confidence. Ron Rivera is one tough dude and the fact that he is bullish on this team is something to be proud of.
His comments do line up with what we have seen from this team this season. They are fighting harder than they have in many years. They also have only had one game that they were out of through the entire fourth quarter. There is a lot to build on moving forward.
