And as I've said 1000 times, saying that this team is losing because they lack killer instinct is lazy and ignorant.
The Falcons lack killer instinct because they had 3 scoring opportunities in the red zone that they came away with 6 points rather than 21?
WTF is killer instinct? Is it simply just the easy and catch-all phrase of defining why certain players/team make the plays that win the games and certain players/teams that do not?
Was it because he lacks killer instinct that Harry Douglas fumbled on his punt return because Don Jones hit him hard? Does that mean that Don Jones has killer instinct?
Is it a lack of killer instinct that caused the Falcons to have a 3 & out following Willy Mo's INT? So does Reshad Jones have killer instinct because he knocked that sideline throw on 2nd down of that drive out of Julio's hands before he could secure it? Was it lack of killer instinct that compelled Matt Ryan to look at Harry Douglas on the 3rd down play rather than Tony Gonzalez?
I just don't understand this. To me it's the same thing as 10,000 years ago when a father and son were fishing in a river to get food for their tribe/village, the son asks, "Daddy, why does the wind blow?" And the father answers, "Son, because the mighty Wind God wills it."
