As bad as it sounds, the Atlanta Falcons will be looking back this week about how close they were to playing in Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens instead of the San Francisco 49ers considering they jumped out to an early 17-0 lead in the NFC Championship. While there’s nothing the team can do about the loss but move on, the Falcons have become the popular topic of another discussion this week–a possible move to Los Angeles.
The rumors of Los Angeles express interest in acquiring the Falcons have heated up this week, but let’s think really hard about this situation because it’s never going to happen in a million years. It would be one thing if the organization struggled to sell tickets on a weekly basis, but the Falcons have one of the strongest fan bases in the league and love their team more than anything.
Sure, there’s always a small chance of a move like this happening, but it’s safe to say the chances of Atlanta moving to Los Angeles is a longshot and would never happen in a million years. This is a team that has been one of the top contenders in the NFC over the last couple of years and there hasn’t been any struggles financially–so it’s time to end all of the nonsense about a possible move by the organization to Los Angeles and just focus on this team bouncing back for the 2013 season.
