Football is a religion in Georgia. The University of Georgia Bulldogs is one of the best college programs in the nation. However, their NFL franchise isn’t enjoying the same success. Yes, it hasn’t been that long since they played in the Super Bowl but that’s when they had the worst meltdown ever (via Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
Historically, the Falcons have been an embarrassment to the NFL. Michael Vick’s dogfighting scandal was one of the most ridiculous and tasteless stories ever. After Matt Ryan’s departure, they became a team in transition and no longer compete with the best in the NFC.
