As for Atlanta -- ye gods did the Falcons look listless. Michael Vick not only never engaged the warp drive, he didn't even use the impulse engines; during his stint on the field he seemed to be jogging like it was a walk-through. And it's not that Atlanta had nothing to play for: Victory would have allowed the Falcons to post back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in franchise history. Instead, Atlanta barely went through the motions, before the home faithful to boot. And sure the Falcons felt disappointed, but a number of disappointed teams (Buffalo, Cleveland, Green Bay, Jersey/B, Kansas City, Miami, New Orleans and Philadelphia) nevertheless went all out to preserve their pride. In the offseason, Falcons coaches and veteran leaders need to take a long look in the mirror and ask themselves if they have heart.
Discuss your favorite team: the Atlanta Falcons. As well as all NFL and pro football-related topics, including fantasy football.
