1. 11-5 regular season and the NFC West crown. a 1-1 split with the Saints but beats them on Monday Night Football near the end of the year to clinch the division.
2. Matt Ryan finished with 30 TD passes and over 3,300 yards passing. establishes himself as one of the elite QBs in the league and finishes in the top 3 for MVP voting. named to Pro Bowl.
3. Michael Turner returns to 2008 form and challenges Purple Jesus and Chris Johnson for the rushing title.
4. a deep playoff run and a loss in the NFC title game to Greenbay or Dallas.
5. 3 straight winning seasons and the sky is the limit for this team. Atlanta is now one of the contenders for the 2012 Super Bowl.
i'd also be happy with 10-6 and a Wildcard, just as long as the Falcons beat a team or two in the playoffs.
