You’ve been burnt by the Falcons. How do you heal?

If you’ve been a Falcons fan for any length of time, they’ve burned you over and over and over and over again, yet you’ve returned to them every time. No matter how many of you say you’re walking away from the Falcons or football after a brutal loss, most of you come back, and you find a way to root for this team and perhaps even believe in them again.

After that excruciating Dolphins loss, how does this team win you back?

For me, the answer’s pretty simple: Just beat the Patriots. That’s not because it will guarantee future wins or prove the team is fully back, but because I’m in for some small manner of revenge, the Patriots are still a good offense at home, and I live in New England and really need this. Bonus points if it’s a convincing win, but simply getting to 4-2 and beating this Pats team would make me feel significantly better.

How about you?
