Falcons snap counts for the Week 6 win over the Buccaneers

Falcons snap counts for the Week 6 win over the Buccaneers

A defensive shakeup arrives. Offense Matt Ryan: 67 Jake Matthews: 67 Wes Schweitzer: 67 Alex Mack: 67 Brandon Fusco: 67 Ryan Schraeder: 67 Austin Hooper: 54 Julio Jones: 51 Tevin Coleman: 38 Logan Paulsen: 37 Justin Hardy: 36 Mohamed Sanu: 33 Ito Smith: 31 Marvin Hall: 15 Eric Saubert: 14 Ricky Ortiz: 13 Calvin Ridley: 7 Russell Gage: 6 I don’t claim to know what’s going on with Mohamed Sanu, or how long Calvin Ridley will be out. If the Falcons have to survive one or (god forbid) multiple weeks without one of them, though, we got a glimpse at what that might look like Sunday. Julio...

Falcons vs. Steelers: Snap counts for a dismal beatdown

Falcons vs. Steelers: Snap counts for a dismal beatdown

What was illuminated was not pretty. Offense Jake Matthews: 72 Wes Schweitzer: 72 Alex Mack: 72 Brandon Fusco: 72 Ryan Schraeder: 72 Matt Ryan: 64 Mohamed Sanu: 59 Austin Hooper: 55 Julio Jones: 53 Calvin Ridley: 47 Devonta Freeman: 28 Tevin Coleman: 27 Marvin Hall: 19 Logan Paulsen: 19 Justin Hardy: 17 Ricky Ortiz: 13 Ito Smith: 12 Matt Schaub: 9 Eric Saubert: 8 Russell Gage: 3 The offense was handicapped pretty much all day by an offensive line not up to the task, if we’re being blunt. All the starters played, but aside from Jake Matthews and Wes Schweitzer, who had largely solid...

Falcons vs. Bengals: Snap counts to help us point fingers angrily

That’s what we like to do after losses, isn’t it? The Falcons got plenty of snaps on Sunday. Some players rose to the occasion and others faltered, and we’re going to take a bit of a closer look at the counts and how they impacted the game right here.

Falcons vs. Saints: Snap counts for Week 3’s loss

Falcons vs. Saints: Snap counts for Week 3’s loss

The Falcons got some snaps, but were there any surprises? Your weekly snap counts follow. I’m still trying to pretend the game ended after the Falcons scored 37 points with an Atlanta victory, so this is a short preamble. Offense Jake Matthews: 68 Wes Schweitzer: 68 Alex Mack: 68 Brandon Fusco: 68 Ryan Schraeder: 68 Matt Ryan: 68 Mohamed Sanu: 59 Austin Hooper: 58 Julio Jones: 54 Tevin Coleman: 53 Calvin Ridley: 42 Logan Paulsen: 21 Justin Hardy: 15 Marvin Hall: 12 Ito Smith: 10 Ricky Ortiz: 9 Eric Saubert: 5 Russell Gage: 2 Despite a huge day for the offense overall, there were some...

Ito Smith and Brandon Fusco discuss their first win in Atlanta

Ito Smith and Brandon Fusco discuss their first win in Atlanta

We spoke with RB Ito Smith and RG Brandon Fusco after Sunday’s victory over the Panthers to hear their thoughts on adjusting to a new team and getting their first wins as Falcons. After Sunday’s victory over the Carolina Panthers, I had a chance to speak with RB Ito Smith and RG Brandon Fusco. Both are new additions to the Falcons for the 2018 season, and Sunday marked their first ever regular season game—and win—in Atlanta. I asked each of them about their transition to a new team, what it was like to play in front of the crowd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and also tried to get a...

Falcons add guard Zac Kerin after Andy Levitre goes on injured reserve

Falcons add guard Zac Kerin after Andy Levitre goes on injured reserve

The former Viking, Lion and Giant has started one game in his NFL career, and once backed up Brandon Fusco. The Falcons put Andy Levitre on injured reserve just a short time ago, and they have a corresponding roster move ready to go. Oddly enough, it’s Brandon Fusco’s former backup when both players were with the Vikings. Zac Kerin is a former undrafted free agent who spent three years with the Vikings before bouncing around to the Lions and Giants. He’s fairly mobile and has dabbled at center in the past, but he’s participated in just 16 NFL games since 2014 and is obviously no...
