Should We Trust The Atlanta Falcons Process?

For those of you who do not know, I am a huge Atlanta Falcons fan and one of the top writers for the Falcons on Bleacher Report. I am just getting that out of the way so you know that I am in no way hating on the Falcons. So now that you know that, here is what I have to say.

I have read probably over a few hundred articles on the Falcons along with the comments that follow, and well, there seems to be a trend. Almost every Falcon fan is praising the "Process". Almost every single fan I have met and seen has said that they fully believe in the "Process". I just have a question, Why does everyone believe so much in the process?

Why is it that one good season is enough to make Dimitroff and Smith gods or geniuses in the minds of Falcon fans?

I mean that is what has happened. The fans have all joined together and preached the gospel of Dimitroff. I have had people comment on my articles arguing with my thoughts, which is great, then bailing out on the end saying they believe in him.

What the Hell? I am sorry, but there are only three fan bases that can say that they trust their GMs like that. They are the Steelers, Patriots, and Colts fans. Aside from those three, there are no other proven front offices.

Okay I kind of exaggerated, but my point is that the Falcons fan base should not be sold on the front office this much.

Now, do not get me wrong. I am not condemning Dimitroff, because on the contrary, I like him. But I do not fully trust him.

I do think that what he did last season was great and very unexpected. But that was just one year of success. There is no need to take away from the achievement that was last year. Still though just one year.

There is not one GM in the NFL that a fan base should trust after only one year of success. To many times in the NFL we have seen teams come out of nowhere to win 10-12 games one year then 4-7 the next.

I do not believe the Falcons will do that next season, but who knows.

This could be skepticism or maybe I am afraid that the success will fail, but whatever it is, I just do not fully believe in Dimitroff and neither should you.

(I do however believe that he knows what he is doing, I just am not fully sold)
