Difference Between Really Good and Fraction Above Terrible
Yes, the Falcons won despite Mike Smith doing everything in his power to find a way to lose the game. The problem is, the Panthers are that much worse than us. They still almost won even though their offense decided to only play barely over a quarter of football. Smith and the Falcons nursed a 16-3 lead and had every chance to put the game away. But you all know how this goes don’t you!
The Falcons fumbled, mumbled, and tried their hardest to let the other team come roaring back for the win. Even though they had TONS of chances to put the game on ice, all the Falcons really needed was ONE more first down and they couldn’t even do that. In fact, the Panthers only needed a few more seconds to get another legit field goal chance. Look, a win is a win, especially over SCam Newton and the chump Panthers, but if you think this team is actually good, than you need to get your head checked.
They’ve beaten all 4 teams from their division, which is jockeying for one of the worst of all time, and no one else. There’s a difference between being momentarily happy to win a game and being completely and totally delusional that this team has any markings of being halfway decent.
