Colin Cowherd was recently discussing the latest odds on the next Superbowl champion, and he made a couple of points. First, he said that the chances of the Saints repeating are not that likely due to their long list of free agents and the fact that everything was "in line" for them this season (i.e. in many regards, they were lucky). Second, he said that two teams to look out for were the Ravens and the Falcons. According to Cowherd, the Ravens are two or three offensive pieces away from being a really dangerous team, and the Falcons are two or three defensive pieces away from being really dangerous.
I'm not a HUGE Cowherd fan, but he's entertaining, and he's a prominent voice in the national media. I took it as a good sign that the Falcons are finally getting some national recognition after years and years of being ignored (often times for good reason).
Do you think that the Falcons will start to garner more attention from the national media?
