The Outside Perception of Raheem Morris is Unfair

The Atlanta Falcons are still waiting to announce what everybody already knows, that Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will be their new head coach.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

John Parker Wilson Waived

Wilson couldn’t survive the first round of cuts on Sunday as he was outplayed by Dominique Davis in the preseason.   Fighting for a spot on the team as the third string quarterback behind Matt Ryan and Chris Redman, the former Alabama product is now on the open market.  Davis will look to make the […]
