From New York to Seattle: Bigger bottle jobs than the Atlanta Falcons

Harry Kettle

Super Bowl 51 was a pretty sensational event no matter which side of the coin you look at it from. The Atlanta Falcons were making the New England Patriots look like a sub-par high school team for three-quarters of the game, before they choked on their cornflakes and ended up losing the Lombardi Trophy to Tom Brady and the Pats.

However, despite all of that, it wasn’t the worst bottle job we’ve ever seen.

If you’re an Atlanta fan then the odds are that you’re breathing a sigh of relief right now, because you think we’re going to take the focus off your band of bottlers for the time being – but just you wait until next season. Obviously, as a team the Falcons are pretty strong, but good god nobody is going to take them seriously again even if they make it all the way back to the greatest show on earth.

If you listen closely, you’ll be able to hear the sound of thousands upon thousands of fans crying into their jerseys around the United States. If you’re one of them, then try not to worry too much. Everyone goes through hardships at some point during their life, and just remember – at least you aren’t from Cleveland.
