Why do quite a few Falcoholics keep making the 2007 Falcons out to be a completely talentless team when Dimitroff took over for 2008? The main problems for the 2007 season when the Falcons went, ahem, 4-12, were that the Super Star QB was on his way to jail and the Head Coach snuck out the back door with games left to play. That can mess things up but talent wise the cupboard was not bare.
Here's the roster:
Plenty of talent on that team.
From 2002-2006 the Falcons were 40-39 with Jekyll and Hyde tendencies and went to two playoffs. Then the wart on the ass of society aka Petrino really screwed things up before taking off on his motorcycle for exotic Arkansas.
Dimitroff has done some good things but it’s not like he didn’t have players with which to build upon for the past handful of years. I do give him credit where credit is due and think we should keep him for a while since he's experienced on what not to do now. But the 2013 team was his team almost entirely.
