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 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 […]

Falcons Season Ends in Disappointment

Atlanta has a lot to be proud about this year.  They had the best record in the NFC leading to a first round bye in the playoffs.  They reached the NFC Championship by defeating the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round.  The win was the first in the Mike Smith/Matt Ryan era in the postseason. […]

Saints Drop Dallas in OT

The Saints showed their talent for a second straight week, defeating the Cowboys and hurting their playoff chances.  Dallas is not eliminated from playoff contention, but that doesn’t make the loss any less bitter.  It was a classic shootout going to the very end with a OT field goal to seal a 34-31 New Orleans […]

Falcons Seal Home Field Advantage

A home game for the Lions turned more into a stadium full of fans for Calvin Johnson.  Despite Detroit falling quickly and struggling all game to make it close, the Lions fans were far more enthralled in Megatron’s record setting night.  In case you haven’t heard, Calvin Johnson broke the record for most receiving yards […]

Falcons Demolish Giants 34-0

Falcons Fall to Panthers

In a surprising turn of events, Carolina dominated a game against the Falcons this Sunday.  They jumped out to a 23-0 lead in the 3rd quarter, leaving too little time for the Falcons to mount a comeback.  The running game was non existent with only 11 carries for 35 yards.  That forced Matt Ryan to […]

Falcons Cruise to Victory

Drew Brees hasn’t won a game in years when he hasn’t thrown a TD.  That is because it hasn’t happened in years.  Today he traded his trademark TD performance with 5 interceptions.  The Falcons feasted on his mistakes regularly, especially in the fourth quarter when the Saints were trying to mount their comeback.  I figured […]

Atlanta Hosts Thursday Night

The Falcons will have a chance for revenge against the one team that has beaten them this season.  The Saints defeated the Falcons just a few weeks back to keep their season alive.  After losing last week to San Francisco, another loss could take them out of the playoffs entirely.  Playing a short week against […]

Falcons Win Slugfest 24-23

Another day, another tight win for Atlanta.  This one came right down to the wire and Falcons won by the slimmest of margins at just 1 point.  Matt Ryan was much improved from his 5 INT performance of last week, throwing for a 353 yards and completing 26 of 32 passes.  He threw only one […]
