With a crushing 27-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints to end the Atlanta Falcons’ hope of an undefeated season last weekend, SOHH hit up hardcore sports fan Big Kuntry King to get his take on the team’s playoffs hopes.
Win or lose during the regular season, Kuntry said he just hopes to see his Falcons make a strong playoff run.
“If you want to know what I think, they’re not even worried about these regular games. That’s why they’re winning,” Kuntry told SOHH. “When they get to the play-offs, they shouldn’t even sweat that sh*t. I think if they think too hard, then they’ll lose. That football is hard when [ESPN] puts the statistics on it. It’s like, d*mn.” (SOHH)
He also pointed out what separates his home team from the other 31 NFL teams.
“It’s no disrespect to the other teams, but it’s always so much fun watching them,” Kuntry added referring to the Falcons. “Like even going to the games, the way we play is with swag. You get what I’m saying? It’s always like when you were a kid and you thought of yourself as a football star and doing the coolest catch or doing the coolest cut or be the coolest quarterback. We’ve got all that sh*t. Whatever we do, it’s always an ‘Ohhhh.’ I’m just glad they’re doing their thing and hopefully we can make history all at the same time. They can make history winning the Super Bowl and I can make history with [my new album] Dope & Champagne. You never know.” (SOHH)
A few months ago, Big Kuntry’s mentor T.I. spoke to SOHH about the Falcons and if they should consider signing free agent Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.
“Could we use him? I believe we could, man,” T.I. told SOHH when asked if the Atlanta Falcons could use the wide receiver. “I think one thing about adversity and tragic moments with people who are extremely talented, it brings the best out of them. He needs another opportunity. Whatever they did, whether it’s Chad or whoever, I think he’s going to be a bit more focused on his reconditioning and I think this all will bring the best out of him.” (SOHH)
Despite their undefeated season hopes being left on the field last Sunday, the Falcons are back to looking at the bigger picture.
Surely, there are a few positives for the Falcons after their first defeat of the season. For starters, they finally are freed from having to talk about being undefeated, the possibility of finishing undefeated and the increasing public scrutiny that goes along with all of that. “No,” cornerback Dunta Robinson said the day after Atlanta’s 31-27 defeat at New Orleans on Sunday. “I’d rather much be answering those questions and be 9-0 than answer these questions and be 8-1.” OK, but it’s not as if New Orleans dominated Atlanta. The Falcons led 10-0 early, regained the lead after falling behind and then lost when they failed to score a touchdown on three chances from the 1-yard line. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
