Last weekend was awful. But…

Now there’s no denying that it was just plain awful in Minnesota for the Atlanta Falcons. After drubbing the hapless Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3, the injury bug ripped the Falcons offensive line apart and the defense decided gave a rookie quarterback all the time in the world. We were all in some level […]

The Falcons Defense Must Stop the Run to Limit the Bleeding

The Atlanta Falcons have a problem, its called their defense although in its current state I’m not sure defense is the right term. This unit has now given up 1719 yards in four games, that’s an average of 429 yards per game and ranks 31st in the league ahead of only the 0-4 Jaguars. This […]

The importance of a Falcons bounce back

It started so well for the Atlanta Falcons. We all went absolutely nuts, and to this day I’m pretty sure you all heard me yelling from my sofa in England as we squeaked past the Saints in overtime. Matty Ice lived up to his moniker and more. We bounded into Week 2, the Cincinnati Bengals […]

Rookie Hageman Turning Heads

Ra’Shede Hageman is coming along nicely for the Falcons.  If you were to only base your opinion on what you’ve seen him do during HBO’s episodes of Hard Knocks, you would probably have some cause for concern and assume he is on his way out the door.  However, in reality, Falcons defensive line coach Bryan Cox […]
