The Falcons have no idea how to use Kyle Pitts and NFL fans turned that into a meme

The Falcons are off to a surprising 2-2 start to the 2022 season.

And given some of the unfortunate bounces of the ball,

one might be able to argue this Atlanta squad should even be 3-1.

But it’s how the Falcons have failed to use second-year star tight end Kyle Pitts that makes one wonder whether this team could be undefeated if they gave their best player the ball.

Through four games, the 6-foot-6, 247-pound Pitts has 22 targets and has yet to score a touchdown or record a 100-yard effort.

Some notable players who have seen more targets?

To name a few — there’s the Chiefs’ third or fourth (at best) receiver in Marquez Valdes-Scantling (23),

David Njoku (23) in the Browns’ anemic passing offense, and Arizona’s 5-foot-7 Greg Dortch (24).

Uh, yeah, what exactly is happening in Atlanta that they can’t feed one of football’s best playmakers the ball? https://ftw.usatoday.com/lists/kyle-pitts-falcons-no-idea-how-to-use-memeIt’s a question that NFL fans answered with some hilarious memes.

Rostering Kyle Pitts is fun because I’m never gonna sit him so every time he busts all I have to say is “I mean it’s Kyle Pitts I can’t sit him” And then it’s no longer my fault my team keeps losing https://twitter.com/Justin_14P/status/1577636084917346307?s=20&t=W__UsVo0hhwhcsnRrfO7XA
