Those poor Falcons. On the wrong side of the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, at least they would find comfort in a warm welcome from fans upon their return to Atlanta following a gut-wrenching 34-28 overtime loss to the Patriots on Sunday.
It turned out the crowd waiting faithfully in the rain to greet the Falcons Monday at the team facility in Flowery Branch, Ga., numbered no larger than a couple dozen.
Understandably, Falcons fans young and old were pretty bent out of shape about the loss. But this was a decidedly depressing display, especially considering Atlantans showed up in droves when the going was good before the big game.

If you dominate the nation’s most popular sport playing the highest-profile position for this long, then you belong in that conversation. Montana, for what it’s worth, was ranked No. 25, which was way too low. Brady would be ranked higher than that, especially after leading the Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl victory.
That moment moment came, and it came in the most entertaining way possible. Now, all that’s left to do is say it out loud.

Berry’s goal last season was to become the highest paid safety in the NFL, and it’s doubtful his goal has changed. It’s also unlikely the Chiefs’ position has changed when it comes to a long-term extension, which will likely lead to them using the tag on Berry in back-to back-seasons.
It won’t be cheap at nearly $13 million, but given the state of the Chiefs franchise as a contender, it’s doubtful they will let him walk away. The Chiefs are one of the biggest proponents of the franchise tag, having used it in each of the last five seasons.
