Falcons president Rich McKay on talk surfacing that Atlanta will indeed win the 2019 Super Bowl. "The Super Bowl bid process is a very well-organized and competitive process and is determined by a vote of the team owners later this month. It's impossible to have any indication of a favorable result weeks before the actual vote happens, and any assertion otherwise is not accurate. We'll continue to respect the NFL's process." The vote occurs May 24 in Charlotte with Atlanta in the mix for 2019 along with Tampa, Miami, and New Orleans.
