The Atlanta Falcons are scheduled to kick off training camp in eight days, and the excitement is palpable. Training camp is so close, we can smell it. (For the record, it smells like soggy french fries and gatorade.) It’s been a long, boring offseason, and meaningful football games are just around the corner.
During each training camp we see a lot of the same storylines. Last years rookies who didn’t blow our socks off are looking to “turn that corner” during their sophomore campaigns. Undrafted free agents are clawing for a roster spot. Fringe veterans are trying to ignore the writing on the wall. The coordinators are learning from last year’s mistakes and their respective units are “really buying in.” In short, the training camp headlines tend to repeat themselves year to year.
So this is where you come in, Falcoholics. You’ve been through this before. You’ve lived this. What generic, Falcons-specific training camp headlines do you anticipate? Give me your best prediction. Ready? Set? Goooooo!
