Is that acceptable ? Yes the regular season wins are there and we have been in playoffs 4 years out of 5 but with a playoff record of 1-4 . Is that acceptable to just stay on the beaten path and hope that the consistency will eventually pay off. We were one play away from the Super Bowl . So close but yet so far away .

Did some research of QB/COACH/GM tenure

2011-Super Bowl winner NY Giants
Jerry Reese became GM of 2007 NY Giants . They went on to win a Super Bowl in 07
but 5 years later they also won another one with Coughlin/Manning combo
Reese-2007
Coughlin -2004
Eli Manning -2004

Only a 4 year SPAN of coach /QB to win a Super Bowl together


2010 Green Bay Packers
GM -Ted Thompson - 2005
HC- Mike McCarthy - 2006
QB- Aaron Rodgers -2005


5 year time span before THEY WON A RING but Rodgers only started 3 years



2009- New Orlean Saints Super Bowl
GM -Mickey Loomis - 2006
Coach- Sean Payton -2006
QB- Drew Brees FA -2006


4 year time span before won ring





THIS YEAR SUPER BOWL WINNER either SF OR Balt

Balt- Ozzie Newsome been there forever
HC- John Harbaugh - 2008
QB-Joe Flacco -2008


SF
GM-Trent Baalke he was named in 2011 but was running ship in 2010
HC- Jim Harbaugh - 2011
QB- Collin K -2011



It looks like its safe to say Falcons have missed the window of opportunity

How have they missed their window of opportunity? I don't see any reason to believe that they won't be back next year.

Can you show me 3 teams that had a GM / QB / HC for over a time span of 5 years that went on to win a Super Bowl after that 5 year time span that hasn't won a ring prior

Is it your life goal to be the biggest troll on every board that involves the Falcons in some way?

No, because I don't have the time, nor do I care. As scar alluded to, there's a first time for everything. Trends are broken all the time.

we have to hope this trend is broken . Chances are it won't be and Falcons won't win a championship until Ryan is gone, Smith or TD is fired.

your anti-Ryan hate speech gets old so quickly.

Only one team a year wins the Super Bowl, so chances are you're right. But that doesn't mean Blank should jump ship and get rid of Ryan, Smith, and/or Dimitroff. That would be incredibly foolish. We've got a real good thing going here. Don't take it for granted.

Like SD Chargers thought they had a good thing with Phillip Rivers . Eventually the regular season success will come to a complete stop . Then were going to have to make a choice does the regular season success in the past that the three have built enough be enough credit in the bank to keep down the same beaten path . If Falcons fail to make playoffs next year a 9-7 season lets say and some injuries. We all agree no 1 is getting fired but what about 2014 but another repeat of that ? is that cause for firings.

With that said 1 playoff win in 5 years is nothing to hang your hat about but the 5 straight regular season winning records is impressive

It was his fifth season as coach as it was the '07 Super Bowl, the '06-'07 season. He was hired in the '02-'03 season.
---'02-'03
---'03-'04
---'04-'05
---'05-'06
---'06-'07

Still within 5 years, but not 4 like you insisted.

Anyways as others have said this is a troll thread.
