You give me stats and I'm trying to tell you that the Falcons have always found new and interesting ways to lose NFL games. It's never about one thing, it's always about whatever it takes to lose. Our Falcons can find a way. And about last year, please.
They hired Steve Sarkisian to replace Kyle Shanahan and the offense immediately averaged 50 yards less per game. The quarterback had his touchdowns nearly cut in half and his picks nearly double. They scored nearly 200 fewer points than in 2016!!!! Keep in mind that there were no catastrophic injuries or significant free agent losses along this offense last year. They just withered. The deep passing game disappeared because Sarkisian decided to turn Julio Jones into a possession receiver.
