Wiedmer: Two games along, neither Falcons nor Titans showing much promise

Uhggggg-leee. Times two. Maybe times four if you want to include all four of the disappointing games the Atlanta Falcons and Tennessee Titans have played to date through the first two weeks of the National Football League season.

A combined zero-for-four are the two closest NFL teams to our city limits at this moment. And just in case you're still looking for a reasonable reason to hope for better days to come, history isn't on their side. According to Stathead, of the 400 teams that have begun the season 0-2 since the AFL-NFL merger of 1970, only 38 have reached the playoffs. That's 9.5% of all 0-2 teams.

If that won't discourage you from planning a Super Bowl party this coming February 12th for either the Falcons or Titans, not sure what will.
