Falcons lead League (and the Saints) in first possession points.


Gotta love it. At least in one offensive category, our beloved Birds have got the rest of the NFL beat in a pretty important category. After the jump, read this quote of a recent Daniel Cox article on the Falcons home site.

"Starting fast on offense has been a hallmark of the Falcons under head coach Mike Smith. Since ’08 they are 34-9 when they score first and in that time their 173 points scored on their first possession leads the NFL. The Saints are second to the Falcons with 171. Last season the Falcons scored 51 points on first possessions." All credit to atlantafalcons.com and Daniel Cox, again.

This team is dangerous when we get off to a fast start. Not mention this only validates using the no-huddle as much as possible. AND validates replacing the coordinator-who-shall-not-be-named, who never seemed to give Matt Ryan full control when he should have it. Oh yeah, and a big nyah-nyah-nin-nah-nyah to New Orleans.

Pretty cool no? That's something we can talk about with pride. Click the link above for more info.
