30. Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are a gifted winless team. There is plenty of talent in that offense. The problem is that it’s mainly in the passing attack. If it were a dominating run game, the Falcons could control the clock and likely be at  2-2 now. Instead, the Atlantic Falcons find their head coach Dan Quinn on a very hot seat.

2020 Summary

After four games of watching leads evaporate, Falcons fans are beyond frustration and are somewhere between indignant and angry. And they have a right to be. The Falcons have blown leads of 15 plus points twice in four games. Does that mean more are coming?

2020 Outlook

The Falcons have a chance to win some games midseason as the team faces off against other struggling NFL teams. But ultimately, they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New Orleans Saints, and the surprisingly resilient Carolina Panthers twice this year. This is an 0-4 team now with almost no hope for a playoff spot.  While head coach  Dan Quinn cannot afford to mail this season in and plan to rebound next season, he may not be leading this team next year.

The Falcons have plenty of offensive talent. They need defensive help, and if they have players with any potential to develop on the roster or practice squad, the team should consider giving them a shot now rather than later.
