It's not just about getting to the playoffs



It's is also about being prepared to compete in the playoffs. This is one thing Atlants was certainly not prepared for why is that. A coach who has never one a playof game. There oldest player Tony Gonzales has never one a playoff game. The only man on the Falcons team with any true worthwhile Playoff experince was Michael Turner and he got that as Tomlinons backup in Charger land. So I thought to myself should the Lions get to playoffs at any point soon who on this team has any real experince in the playoffs? Houston no, Calvin No, Backus and Dom double no. Is this a reason to be concerned I don't think so but here is what I do think. When it comes to free agency and building a team you need to find the correct balance of youth and experince right now the only real experince we have is Vanden Bosch. That is why we need to spend some money in free agency to try and get guys like McClain, Greenway, Harris or Breaston. Players that have been in the post season and won games.

 Guys like these cost money and we will have to use grit and fight to obtain them. Sure they all fill positions of need they all have a proven track record as opossed a draft pick but it is also about young players like Phonz and Levy learning from men who have been there before and how they got there and how they prepared once they did. Atlanta is a very good team an has a bright bright future ahead but they made a vital deadly mistake tonight....They didn't know how to prepare for the level of game they were about to play. They didn't know what they were getting into. For the Lions to reach the point we all strive for them to reach we need to sign players that are winners, have a positive attiude and can show us the way.

 

It's a dead give away of an inexperienced writer if every character speaks with the same voice.
