Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of Falcons fans have a level of confidence in this team, and a majority of those have a lot. That’s what happens when Atlanta assembles one of the league’s most talented rosters, puts together a coaching staff that is at the very least quite good at developing players, and goes to the playoffs two years in a row, including a Super Bowl. This team’s future still seems bright, as well, and I’d say I also feel very confident about the Falcons over the next 2-3 seasons, at the very least.
In addition, readers and fans polled weighed in on bad rules. I’m not sure the helmet rule is actually worse than the catch rule, which has been the source of so much consternation in recent years, but I’m open to the argument.
