View Full Version : Why the Falcons?

I have been a fan of American Football since the days when the Sunday afternoon game was broadcast live on channel 4 but have never picked a favourite team.

Why should I support your team?

Well, where to begin? I think we should start by being a Falcons fan, you're going to be in for lots of ups and downs, it's just part and parcel of the Atlanta Falcons. That being said, we're now approaching Dan Quinn's 3rd season as head coach and so far he has laid a rock solid foundation to be build on, so expect there to be more ups than downs in the coming years.

Player wise, we have one of the league's best QB's in Matt Ryan and with the new offensive coordinator's style, expect an up-tempo, aggressive offensive with lots of no huddle play calling from Ryan himself. We have potentially the best running back tandem in the league with Freeman and Coleman and arguably the greatest receiver in the league in Julio Jones, who is just simply inhuman at times.

Defensively we're improving, the Falcons have made some solid draft picks over the last couple of years and this is culminating in what will be the fastest and hardest hitting secondary in the NFL. We still have a ways to go, so don't go expecting shutouts or defensive master-classes just yet.

Tie all this in with an amazing new stadium and you have one of the NFL's up and coming franchises with a true shot at establishing a new dynasty.

Whichever team you choose in the end, enjoy the football!

Rise up!
