Atlanta Falcons: Determined To Make A Super Bowl Run In 2013
The Atlanta Falcons and QB Matt Ryan have experienced great regular season success the last couple of years but they seem to lose when it matters the most and that’s in the playoffs. This has been a great concern in the state of Georgia, but Coach Mike Smith is determined to change this perception of the team as well keep his players hungry, confident, and together as one.
Matt Ryan is a great young quarterback that is taking the NFL by storm with his poise, leadership, and for making the deep throw. He has taken his talent to another level since putting on the Falcon helmet. It also doesn’t hurt to have WR Julio Jones as your target too.
The questions have been piling up lately if he can take this franchise to the Super Bowl and win it all next season? That’s what NFL fans are asking and Atlanta Falcons loyalists are a bit worried ever since they lost in the NFC Championship game to the San Francisco 49ers 28-24. Have no fear, with the talent this team has they will be great for years to come and they seem to have a strong run in place.
People are saying that they are solidifying themselves as a great regular season team and they just seem to freeze up under pressure in key playoff games. I think that they are really good and have some dangerous players that can get it done but they’ve been going through some growing pains.
The Atlanta Falcons are trying to sway TE Tony Gonzalez back for a final season and I personally think he’s welcoming the invitation as well. After witnessing Baltimore Ravens Ray Lewis having won the big game and retire on his terms, Gonzalez believes that he can do the same.
This team in my eyes is a player or two away from making a run at the Super Bowl. They will need to bring in the kind of players that will hold players accountable and a game changer. They need someone with championship experience. This will make the difference next season.
As we’ve heard by now the rumor going around in the NFL is that the Atlanta Falcons are targeting RB Reggie Bush and also Steven Jackson. So we shall see where this goes. But if they get either one, all I can say is Whoa!
You know how they say that every city is due a championship; well the Atlanta Falcons are due one. Let’s look at the city as a whole and look at the last time they’ve won something. Not attacking the city but showing the strong odds against them. But this spell can be broken and I think real soon. The city hasn’t won a title since 1995 when the Atlanta Braves won the World Series. With all of these sports teams in Atlanta only one championship in decades. So the Atlanta Falcons are trying to bring hope to the city.
This upcoming 2013 NFL season will be very important for Matt Ryan to become the MVP QB that he always had in him. He just needed some time to develop more and show the league that he has what it takes to be the guy and win the big prize. He’s a player that we should keep a close eye on next season.
