Why do we always play not to lose? Why did they abandon the successful man to man for a zone D yesterday? Why do all Atlanta sports teams play like were destined for failure? Why can we not let the past be the past? Will Atlanta ever win a chamionship again?
Odds say yes, over time, as long as teams remain and play in the ATL. But the nonstop playoff misery makes me wonder if we'll ever get over the hump.
Will the Braves or Falcons win a Championship first? Personally, I don't think the Braves chances are very good at all. Our incredible lack of offensive production and OBP will kill us this year. On top of that it doesn't take much to choke in the playoffs, just ask last year's defense. Our great pitching will only get us so far.
Aurthur Blank is the reason I believe the Falcons could get us over the hump. We were so fing close yesterday even with the poor move to zone defense that we still ended up 6 yards away from the Super Bowl, and a non-call for pass interference to boot. We SHOULD be in the Super Bowl, beating the Ravens. Ryan and Co. are that damn good, and really, our only chance next year of winning a title.
