This is an article I wrote on my home page, www.midutahradio.com. Hopefully, you Falcons fans appreciate my take. I hope the Broncos are up to snuff but I believe the Falcons will have a special season. Feel free to comment if you desire.
To me, the Atlanta Falcons are legitimate Super Bowl contenders. This is a prevailing notion to me as I lay down my weary head to bed after writing these (hopefully) illustrious articles for your perusing pleasure!
I can just envision the likes of quarterback Matt Ryan (263 of 451, 2,918 yards, 22 TD’s, 14 INT’s), wideout Roddy White (85 receptions, 1,153 yards, 11 TD’s), tight end Tony Gonzalez (83 rec, 867 yards, 6 TD’s) and tailback Michael Turner (10 TD’s) improving their stats in 201.
Furthermore, an opportunistic defense featuring studs like safety Thomas DeCoud and defensive end John Abraham will live up to its potential by dethroning last year’s Super Bowl champions, the New Orleans Saints, in the NFC South.
I just like how the Falcons do things and they seem to have all the pieces in place. I would like to see young defensive end, Lawrence Sidbury, assert himself as a complimentary end to Abraham. The Falcons fans would definitely deserve a Super Bowl title and while I love my Denver Broncos more than any other team, there’s a soft spot in my football-loving heart for teams with low profiles (such as the Saints) who excel on the grandest stage the game has to offer.
If nothing else, I expect a champions’ heart to be forged on the practice fields of Atlanta suburb, Flowery Branch, Ga. as the Falcons engage in training camp. Thanks for reading!
