John Abraham And The Falcons Look Ahead To Arizona After Close Loss Against Steelers

Even though the Atlanta Falcons lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in disappointing fashion this past Sunday, there were several positives to take away from the game. Obviously the Falcons defense did a solid job limiting the effectiveness of the Steelers. No one player turned in a dominating individual performance, but collectively it was a good effort. It was promising to see defensive end John Abraham play as well as he did. He looked like he had his explosive first step back on several plays. Abraham and the rest of the Falcons know they must play better though if they want to realize any of the goals and aspirations they have for the 2010 season:

What the team’s mindset was like after the loss:

“My mindset was on how close the game really was. Just a couple of mistakes for us made it viable for them to win. Like me, I should have had that interception. I am still thinking about that today. That could have easily been a pick-6 going the other way. Like just small things like that. That just bothers you. Like I said, right now we have to move onto Arizona. My mind is set on Arizona. I think the team all around feels good and that mistakes aren’t going to be part of our team anymore. We are going to try to eliminate the mistakes and try to move on. It is tough because you try to get on a rolling start, which I think we did as a team but we didn’t get the outcome that we wanted.”
