Jeanna and DW are joined this week by Andrew Hirsh, writer for AtlantaFalcons.com . The group relives the Falcons painful loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl 51, but quickly move on to discuss more encouraging topics, including:

  • Whether this team can make it back to the playoffs and make another run in the postseason in 2017
  • The confidence everyone has in Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff to improve the roster even more
  • Relishing the amazing performance of Matt Ryan in 2016, along with his fantastic playoff performances
  • Fawning over the incredible draft classes of 2015 and 2016

It may still be painful to talk about the loss, but this is definitely a team that we can still believe in. This is a more positive podcast than you’d think, which may be something we could all use right about now.
