Really, guys and girls? Really?

It's an uphill battle to convince people to take the Falcons' fanbase seriously, and you're walking into a machine gun nest with a neon vest that says SHOOT ME. You can make the argument that there are deeply passionate Falcons fans and a lot of them, which you and I know to be true, but then you get the Georgia Dome walkouts

And then there's Facebook, where the Falcons are 15,000 Likes behind the Tennessee Titans and just above the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers! The bile is rising in my throat just thinking that the Falcons can barely beat out the worst team in the NFL for the cellar of these rankings, especially after the team just went 13-3 and are firmly in the midst of building a winning culture in Atlanta.

I know it's just Facebook and all, but man.
