Quick discussion post for y'all tonight. I was hesitant to even broach this topic, because I know emotions will inevitably run high. But that said, I think it's worth discussing. We've gone back and forth previously about whether Falcons fans overreact after playoff losses. Rant Sports' Ken Grace penned an interesting op-ed addressing this question.
Let’s be clear here, the Falcons did not lose to a slouch; they lost to a team who was a play or two away from being in the Super Bowl last year. They lost to a team with a stingy defense and with one of the most talented offensive rosters in the entire NFL. Let’s be clear about this as well, the NFC championship was a good game. Atlanta played some of their best football and surprisingly was able to move the ball against a really good defense.
