When the Falcons start 6-3 or better

Great win, but history may suggest some caution about the Falcons' prospects when they start a season 6-3 or better.

Here's a look at the historical record at this very exciting juncture of the season.

The Falcons have started 6-3 or better only six other times in their 42-year history.

  • In 1973, they finished 9-5 and missed the postseason.
  • 1980, 12-4, 0-1 postseason.
  • 1995, 9-7, 0-1.
  • 1998, 14-2, 2-1.
  • 2004, 11-5, 1-1.
  • 2005, 8-8, missed postseason.

For what it's worth, this year's model is the first Falcons team ever to start 6-3 after winning less than 5 games the year before.  Let's not get ahead of ourselves, but damn this year has been fun so far!  These guys seem to get better every game.

Keep up the good work and Go Falcons!
