When you wade into the Atlanta Falcons SB Nation site, The Falcoholic you see a striking resemblance to Revenge of the Birds circa 2012.

In fact, much of what I read seems inline with the end of the Ken Whisenhunt era and the fact that Whiz had much of his own blood on his hands.

I feel for the Falcons and their fans because we remember what it is like to go from minutes away from a Super Bowl title to being bad.

Of course, the Cardinals rebounded well then fell down again, but this is about the Falcons.

Let’s take a look at what is going on in Atlanta.
