NFL Offseason Preview -- Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons 2011 Record:  10-6 PPG For: 25.1 (7th) PPG Against:  21.9 (18th) 2012 Cap Number:  $100,227,174 Draft Position:  No First Round Pick Atlanta entered 2011 as the trendy pick to win the NFC, but quickly showed why many stats-minded people picked them to regress. Their 13 win season in 2010 wasn’t all smoke-and-mirrors, but a ridiculously easy schedule and a terrific record in close games certainly didn’t hurt. Consider 2011 a reality check, Falcons fans, because though your team is definitely playoff quality, it was much more than one talented wide receiver away from winning the Super Bowl. However, with a bit of cap room and a much clearer vision of what to improve, Atlanta could find themselves back in the contending mix in a very short time.
