The Atlanta Falcons won’t play a meaningful football game for another three and a half months. That’s a long time to wait, but we’ve made it this far, right? For now let’s just enjoy the baseball season, look forward to the remaining OTAs, and drink to excess.
Reddit user u/Kajeetlol posed an interesting question on the NFL subreddit over the weekend. The question goes something like this: what’s your favorite unpopular opinion about your NFL team?
My favorite unpopular opinion has to do pass rushing phenom Takkarist McKinley. I like Takk just as much as the next Falcons fan with a pulse, but I’d be ecstatic if he’d stay off social media ... forever. I had these same thoughts about Falcons great Roddy White. Like White, Takk has a tendency to say a little too much a little too often on social media. There’s no questioning his talent and effort on the field, and to be clear, his Twitter shenanigans obviously don’t lose games. But just put down the smart phone, Takk. Put. It. Down.
So what say you, Falcoholics? What’s your favorite unpopular opinion about the Falcons?
