New Falcons head coach Dan Quinn got his signature win Sunday against Carolina. The Falcons now stand at 8-7 with a chance to have a surprising winning record this season.
All that stands in the way from finishing 9-7 is New Orleans next Sunday at the Georgia Dome.
This has been a strange season for the Falcons. They started the season 5-0. At one point lost six in a row. Now they have won two in a row, including upending undefeated Carolina.
There hasn’t been a shortage of Atlanta Falcons critics this season. At points in the season, the Falcons have looked disorganized.
If they can get the win next Sunday against New Orleans, this will have to be considered a successful season. What you have to be impressed with is the way Quinn has kept the team together and motivated.
A loss next week to New Orleans and the naysayers have some ammunition to take into the off-season.
