The long-suffering anguish of Falcon’s fans could possibly end next week.
The city of Atlanta and it’s fans are restless. With only one major championship win ever, the fans want this one more than anything. From the Super Bowl of 1998 to the 2012 NFC championship game the Falcons have come so close. The Braves won it all in 1995 but nothing since, after losing the 1996 and 1999 world series.
While the Hawks on the other hand could never get past a stacked eastern conference in the 80’s and 90’s and now have a juggernaut to deal with in Cleveland. In short, years and years of pain could be erased on Super bowl Sunday.
A title is always remembered. If the Falcons could beat Tom Brady and the Patriots it would never be forgotten. A city with B.F.S (Battered Fan Syndrome) would cherish a Super Bowl forever. Years of torment and pain would seemingly melt away in the blink of an eye. Born in 1997, I’ve never witnessed a title and the chances to see one are few and far between. This Falcons team is special however. They have the tools to win it all.
The NFL has rarely seen an offensive firepower like the Falcons have produced this season. Led by the likely MVP Matt Ryan, Atlanta will be riding momentum heading into next week. This young defense has grown up over the course of the year and is poised to be formidable. However, this team faces their hardest test and must have everything go their way.
The support from this city is alive and well. From the city hall rally and Friday’s Hawks game everyone has Falcon’s fever, and rightfully so. Moments like these are few and far between so it’s best to take advantage of them. All in all, Atlanta is behind the Falcons win or lose.
