The Atlanta Falcons may have to wait until February 2nd to announce Dan Quinn as their next head coach, as is widely expected but it would appear that the Falcons do have a new offensive coordinator. Although the appointment has not yet been made official several sources are reporting that Kyle Shanahan will be running […]

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 […]

Projecting the Falcons 3 games in…

Preseason projections commonly had the Atlanta Falcons hovering around the .500 mark. With everything they had to achieve on both lines alone that was probably a fair conclusion to come to, it may have even been out of the mind of someone see’s a glass half full. With 3 games in the book it’s fair […]

The next ‘best cornerback’ in the NFL

I want to highlight two things right off the bat… One, the cornerback position (at least since the NFL became so pass heavy) spits out a new ‘best at the position’ once, sometimes twice a season. They’re all deserving but there’s a lot of turnover for the title of ‘best’.  Two, this is not a […]

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 […]

Pre-Season Never Meant so Much for the Falcons

Never has a pre-season game meant so much to the Atlanta Falcons than the one coming up on Saturday night at home to the Tennessee Titans, well the first half of it anyway as it was confirmed yesterday that the Falcons would play their starters for the entire first half and the Titans are expected […]

Falcons vs. Dolphins

Taking in the first preseason game from the couch instead of the Dome.   Typically, the preseason is a snooze fest, but we are really wanting to watch how much the Offensive Line is improved, has the Defense improved, and  what about the new faces?  Right off the bat, we get to see the Defense […]

Atlanta Falcons: Tales From Training Camp

The buzz word around the Atlanta falcons this off season has been ‘Toughness’, the reason? The Falcons want to get tougher and nastier in the trenches, something that was highlighted during last year’s 4-12 season but in reality has been a long term issue.  If there was a word to avoid this off season and […]
