Imagine this: Ray Edwards intercepts a pass, and then runs the wrong way to give the other team 2 points. Now imagine he does this twelve times in a single game. How would that feel?
Quick little discussion post for you all this afternoon.
We all have high hopes for this season - and rightfully so - but we can't ignore the fact that, by some unforeseen miracle, this season may end up as a real dud. Offensive line may be a revolving door, offensive skill players forget the new terminology, or maybe Matt Ryan just decides to call it a career tomorrow.
We're all pumped and primed to be a perennial contender, but what if almost everything goes wrong?
So today, you all get to make a prediction. Not one rooted in pessimism, but one rooted in realism if we just had a terrible season on our hands.
To make things a little more challenging, you're not allowed to have a single injury be the problem. How bad could it get if we just flat out sucked the entire season?
I could see anywhere between 4-12 and 6-10. Our schedule is rather difficult this year, and we alternate home and away games all season long. If, for some reason, things don't click like we hope they would, we could be in for a pretty bummed out ride for the season.
Naturally, I'm not expecting it to happen, but what's your worst case scenario for the Falcons?
