Falcons Owner Still Reeling From Teams Playoff Exit to Packers

Falcons owner Arthur Blank is as emotionally invested as any owner in professional sports. He admits he’s still psychologically hung over from the Falcons’ 48-21 loss in the Georgia Dome two weeks ago. He is going to Dallas for Super Bowl week – only he’s not really going to the Super Bowl according to Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

“I leave Thursday, we have meetings and then the hosting owner [Jerry Jones] always has a party Thursday night,” Blank said. “Then Friday morning the commissioner has a press conference, and I’ll go to that. Friday afternoon I’ll go to radio row for interviews. Friday night is the commissioner’s party. Saturday we were going to have a league meeting but that’s been canceled, so I guess I’ve got some free time.”

“I’m coming home Sunday morning — mostly because I’m still pissed about our game,” he said. “My emotional thermometer is different than when I first became an owner.”

“You don’t look ahead,” he added, “but we certainly believed we would get deeper than we did.”
