Dirk Koetter gives rambling, confusing explanation for doomed goal line play-calling

Dirk Koetter gives rambling, confusing explanation for doomed goal line play-calling

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports The red zone remains one of seemingly countless Achilles heels for the Falcons. The Falcons offense is absolutely drowning in talent and playmakers. There is the league’s best wide receiver in Julio Jones. Impressive sophomore Calvin Ridley who is hoping to outdo his 10 touchdown rookie campaign. Former Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman finally back and healthy. Austin Hooper is a mismatch nightmare. Mohamed Sanu can overpower nearly any defensive back for a contested catch. Qadree Ollison is presumed to be the team’s goal line back. So it was...

Logan Paulsen, Chris Odom, Thomas Duarte only reported cuts on quiet day for Falcons

Logan Paulsen, Chris Odom, Thomas Duarte only reported cuts on quiet day for Falcons

The team now has to trim the roster by over 30 players today. The Atlanta Falcons made it clear on Thursday night’s broadcast that they thought they’d be cutting ties with about 27 players on Friday. It’s very possible they did that, but they certainly didn’t announce those cuts, and very few leaked out. In all, we learned about three cuts yesterday. Atlanta’s release of Logan Paulsen and Thomas Duarte leaves only Austin Hooper, Luke Stocker, Jaeden Graham, and Alex Gray at tight end, with Graham almost certainly stitching up the third tight end job for himself. That’s an...

Falcons snap counts and notes for Week 3 of preseason

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ What can we learn from the way Dan Quinn doled out snaps? SNAP COUNT TIME! Sorry to yell. Offense Danny Etling: 32 Adam Gettis: 32 John Wetzel: 32 Sean Harlow: 32 Jaelin Robinson: 32 Chris Lindstrom: 30 Matt Gono: 30 Jake Matthews: 30 Alex Mack: 30 Christian Blake: 25 Austin Hooper: 25 Shawn Bane: 24 Logan Paulsen: 23 C.J.

Falcons TE Jaeden Graham making his case for the 53-man roster

Falcons TE Jaeden Graham making his case for the 53-man roster

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports So long as his injury isn’t serious. The Falcons surprised quite a few people when they traded away Eric Saubert earlier in the preseason. Many fans speculated that this meant the team would roll with Austin Hooper, Luke Stocker and Logan Paulsen. However, one name has stood out in camp and he’s been making a hard push for consideration as the third tight end on the 53-man roster: Jaeden Graham. So long as his injury against Washington isn’t too serious, Graham has shown he’s already a more reliable receiver than Saubert was in his 2 seasons with the...

Falcons snap counts and notes from Atlanta’s game against the Jets

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ Here’s what you need to know about how the Falcons divvied things up Thursday night. We have comments on snap counts that aren’t solely related to how ridiculous it was for Matt Ryan to play almost an entire half in Week 2 of preseason. Let’s get to them. Offense Wes Schweitzer: 46 Matt Gono: 46 Chris Lindstrom: 42 Jamon Brown: 42 Jake Matthews: 42 Sean Harlow: 39 Jalen Robinson: 39 Adam Gettis: 39 Matt Simms: 39 Jaeden Graham: 31 Ty Sambrailo: 31 Olamide Zaccheaus: 31 Matt Ryan: 31 Christian Blake: 30 Austin Hooper: 28 Shawn Bane: 27 C.J.

Jaeden Graham made his case for the Falcons TE3 job against the Jets

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via The second-year Yale product showed real promise as a receiver. The Falcons feel like they know what they have in most of their tight ends. They’ve had seasons to evaluate Austin Hooper, who looks ready to break out even further in his fourth season. Luke Stocker is a steady veteran who has played for both new/old offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and new tight ends coach Mike Mularkey. Logan Paulsen is a known quantity as a quality blocker. Eric Saubert was, at least in the coaching staff’s eyes, not a lock to make this roster, which is...
