In the least surprising news ever, fan confidence in the Falcons absolutely tanked after the Week 10 loss to the Cardinals, hitting an all-time low for the season at just 7%.
It’s not difficult to understand why. The Cardinals had one win all season before facing the Falcons. The Falcons defense just isn’t the same with Grady Jarrett and David Onyemata out, and it showed. Factor in the inconsistencies at the quarterback position and, yeah. This team isn’t giving us many reasons to be confident in the direction it’s headed!
We also asked you to project the team’s final record. Most respondents, 40%, went with an underwhelming 7-10.
On paper, the rest of this season should be a pretty easy stretch for Atlanta. There’s not a single team left on the schedule that has a record over .500 heading in to Week 12. But we’re talking about the Falcons, so all bets are off, really.
Finally, we wanted to know what record you think Arthur Smith needs to finish with this year to keep his job. A 9-7 record could very well win the NFC South, but can the Falcons get there? Who knows.
