The Falcons are back, and are now flying high once again.
Have you ever heard the term "Bring back the biff" Well here's a team that is doing just that, and are now back to what appears to be their 2008 best, much to the delight of Atlanta fans.
Last season saw the Falcons collapse both mentally and physically. Once Michael Turner went down with an ankle injury, life was instantly sucked right out of the Georgia Dome, and the focus then started to turn toward next season.
Fortunately though, the Falcons did finish 9-7, which is good considering how things could have turned out given Atlanta's lack of confidence toward the midway point in the season.
However, the Falcons' injury and confidence bug wasn't the only disappointing story.
Yes, the bigger story was the New Orleans Saints, as they began to strangle the NFC South division, and take over like Conan O'Brien took over The Tonight Show, only to actually succeed.
But like my elders always say "That was in the past, focus on today," and that is exactly what the Falcons are doing in the present time.
Michael Turner is back, and looking great I might add, and the teams confidence for this season is underrated, but definitely existent.
So when it's all said and done, will the Falcons capture the NFC South? Look, it won't be a cakewalk by any stretch of the imagination, but it certainly is doable.
Before that is to happen though, the Falcons must keep their offseason confidence rolling.
This will be easier said than done though, as the Falcons have Pittsburgh, Arizona, New Orleans, and San Francisco all in the first month of the regular season.
Like I said, it is doable. But the Falcons must form a hot streak first, before they are to move forward.
