Sad but true.

From Don Banks on CNNSI.com

Way to show a little professional pride, Falcons. That was quite the mail-in job at home against Carolina. Wonder what color Jim Mora's mood ring was after that debacle?

The Falcons (8-8) had far loftier goals for themselves this season, but when it was all said and done, they lost six of their last eight and couldn't even end their streak of never having consecutive winning seasons in the 40-year history of the franchise.

I was very tempted to leave early, I'm shocked I didn't...

I should have changed the channel to a game that mattered. But I watched the entire game while taking down the christmas tree and remaining decorations. It was one of the worst displays I've seen for a long time.

It is clear who is a real Falcon... Nobody. Not one person cared about breaking one of the worst streaks in NFL history (no back-to-back winning seasons). So things start over again as we need two seasons of 9-7 play or better to break the infamous record.

Heads should roll for this failure.

I did. First time I've EVER snubbed a part of a game I could have watched. (I live in Biloxi and have to go to sports bars or casinos to watch them if they're not on regular broadcast tv). And this dates to their first game ever!

RdHdBirdFan,
I know this is off of the topic, but you said you live in Biloxi, and I wanted to see how things are going down there. Are people holding up okay? I know that a couple of the casinos are opening back up which will hopefully help the economy down there, but I know it's still going to be hard to recover. Anyway, please know that you and everyone else down there are in my prayers and I hope that things get easier for all of you daily.

Well, I live in Taxachussetts and the I didn't have a choice. The Panther/Falcon game was on and was swithced at halftime, with JB and crew saying, "Obviously the Falcons have started their vacation early, so we are going to switch you to a more competetive game..." It was embarrassing to say the least.
