NFL  > General NFL  > Falcons Won't Make the Superbowl
November 12, 2012, 12:47 PM
I'm going to make this prediction after the Falcons first loss of the season because I think their true colors came out during this game. This is a very good football team, there is no doubt about it, but it is a regular season football team. I thought the Falcons have been overrated the entire season. I realize they were 8-0 but take a look at who they were 8-0 against. I think there were two teams that did not have losing records and one of those was the Broncos in Week 2 I believe when they were still finding their identity, not to mention the Broncos almost won the game. Yes the Falcons still won games, but they barely got by against some god awful teams.

Again I think the Falcons are a great team, I would not mind nor would I be surprised if they went to the Superbowl. Any team in the playoffs has a shot of doing so. But I think we have finally seen that this team is not perfect and is not a lock to go all the way. I also believe that when they get to the playoffs and face the top teams, they are going to falter.

QUOTE(#3):

falcons will host a playoff game and lose...........like the packers last year.

The best playoff teams are the ones that get hot late in the season and then steam roll everyone. The team with the best record usually gets knocked off.
