Why The Falcons Fans Are #19 On Facebook
The reason Falcons Fans Are #19 On Facebook is all about wins.
The birth of the Super Bowl era (1966) is also the the birth year of the Atlanta Falcons Fans, and the team got off to a slow start. It took them 13 years to finally make a post season appearance, and then showed up two more times in the next four years.
Then Falcons Fans had to wait another 9 years to get back for another shot at the title game, and then another 7 years later they finally made it to the Super Bowl where Dan Reeves handed his former QB John Elway his second SB Win in two years.
Fifteen years have passed, and Falcons Fans have not seen their team get back to the biggest game in the sports world. However, since HC Mike Smith took over in 2008 the team has made the playoffs in 4 of his six years.
The 2013 season was a string of bad luck, with key players landing on the injury list, an O-line & Pass rush that needed help, and perhaps the worst injury was WR Julio Jones requiring a second surgery to the same foot.
The off season brought hope from Free Agency and the draft, and the promise of better O-line performance on the right side certainly will benefit Center Joe Hawley.
Hawley’s struggles last year were due in part to the talent deficiency at RG, so signing Jon Asamoah and grabbing RT Jake Matthews in the first round will solidify that side for several years to come. How fast will these guys jell?
Falcons Fans do have reason to be excited over the changes that should bring a positive affect to the pass rush. We sometimes forget the injured players coming back, but you can bet DC Mike Nolan hasn’t forgotten Kroy Biermann. Kroy is the guy who can make a big difference when he’s healthy.
