FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Football teams typically turn to a silent count on offense to combat adverse conditions on the road. The Atlanta Falcons had to rely on such a method at home.You know with Mississippi State ranked #1 in the college polls and the Dallas Cowboys at 5-1, maybe these Falcons fans are right to stop watching football.
Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter admitted he had to go with a silent count during Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Chicago Bears at the Georgia Dome. The dome typically is noisy, but there was a little added volume with the influx of Bears fans.
"Believe or not, for a home game, we had to go to silent count because there was enough noise in the dome -- noise always echoes in there both for us and against us," Koetter said. "That's maybe only the second time since I've been here when we've had to go to a silent count at home."

Football season must have ended early.
