Another 7-9 finish would simply be a disappointment. Although the record of one game in the win column wouldn’t be much, the symbolism of another losing season will feel like failure. Particularly, if the Falcons would put that 7-9 dagger in us again. This game is HUGE. Make no mistake, this one game could make or break the season as far as perception. Sometimes perception is is bigger than reality in the NFL. With rumors swirling about Sean Payton leaving an 8-8 record would at least be enough to give him the benefit of one more year.
