Blank Confident Falcons Can Turn It Around

Falcons owner and chairman Arthur Blank is disappointed in his team's 2-4 start to a 2014 season that came with high expectations, but he's staying optimistic about the remaining slate.

Speaking to's Vaughn McClure on Tuesday, Blank expressed the reasons behind his disappointment, saying that, "if you have no capacity, you're not disappointed. When you have capacity and you don't perform, you are. So, we are.

The Falcons are about to embark on a difficult stretch that includes a road game in Baltimore before a week-long trip to London for what will be a home game in name only against Detroit. The Falcons will return to Atlanta for a bye week and then hit the road for Tampa and Carolina games.

Despite being 0-3 on the road this year, Blank believes the Falcons can find a way to become a more consistent football team in 2014 that can win both in and out of the Georgia Dome.

"We have 10 more games to go, we've won the two games in our division," Blank said. "Obviously we've lost four other ones, so we have to play a lot better the next 10 games. And we have a tough road ahead of us. The next four games will be on the road. Other teams have played well on the road and have performed on the road. We're capable of doing that as well. We haven't as of late, but we're definitely capable of doing it."
