Flying Lower Than Expected

inline_109166315401The Atlanta Falcons had high expectations going into the season but right now I’m afraid they are not meeting them. Matt Ryan and the Falcons were expected to have a great year and possibly bring a Lombardi Trophy to Atlanta. With the signings of Stephen Jackson and Desmond Trufant the Falcons were supposed to have a great 12-4 season and win the division. With the way the Falcons look right now they will be lucky to only loose 5 games  this year. They already have lost 3 times and they still have to play the Packers, Seahawks, Saints and 49ers.

I believe that the key thing for the Falcons in their defense. They have allowed 104 points in four games including a game winning touchdown against the Dolphins. The defense needs to improve quickly before they fall too far behind. Osi  Umenyiora needs to step up and make some plays. I believe this is his chance to become a team leader and impact the Falcons defense. On Sunday night the Patriots shutdown the Falcons running game and didn’t even allow a rushing touchdown. The Falcons receivers still played pretty good considering how good the Patriots defense played. I still think the Falcons will make the playoffs but if they want to get anywhere they need to make adjustments NOW.
