The Falcons need a championship to get over Super Bowl 51

The Seattle Seahawks are still getting grief for their Super Bowl loss, which definitely pales in comparison to Atlanta’s.

The Oakland Raiders just paid Derek Carr $125 million, which has literally nothing to do with the Atlanta Falcons, the Seattle Seahawks, or Super Bowls. Hopefully he can use some of that money on a suit jacket that didn’t come from the Dollar Store.

During his press conference where he talks about his move from humble millionaire to filthy rich millionaire, he tossed some shade to the Seahawks.

It is two years later and one bad call is still giving the Seahawks and their fans plenty of grief. The Falcons, obviously, had a much bigger lead and had perhaps dozens of catastrophic play calls to steal a victory over nearly certain success. If Seattle still gets this noise after two years, Atlanta is guaranteed to get this through the next decade.

There really is only one possible solution here: the Falcons need to head right back to the Super Bowl and not Kyle Shanahan it up. Or else we will be hearing about it until 2030.
