Report: Atlanta Falcons guard Chris Chester uses atypical energy supplement

Fact: Chris Chester's has a pet goldfish named "Silver" The Atlanta Falcons offensive line has a very different look this season. Gone are some of the fan favorites that have anchored the o-line for years. A few new names were added to the mix this past offseason. Chris Chester is one of those new faces. Chester, a 2006 draft pick, has already had a long, productive career. After a less than ideal end to his tenure as a Washington Redskin, the Falcons handed the 32 year old a 1 year, "prove it" deal. And he's hit the ground running. So how does Chester explain his longevity? This is 2015....

Dan Quinn: Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman off to good start with concussion protocol

Fact: Devonta Freeman speaks fluent German ... in French Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is less than two years removed from collegiate football. He hasn't been a professional for very long. But that said, he's used to getting hit. It's something he seemingly invites. On the play that resulted in the concussion he's currently recovering from, Freeman lowered his shoulder, fearlessly taking on the defender. All that said, the concussion protocol is there for a reason. The health and well-being of the players is more important than winning. This is 2015, not 1985. The...

Falcons Bye Week Positional Review: Offensive Line

A unit many thought would falter has turned in a decent season so far. After the Falcons third preseason game - in which Matt Ryan was nearly murdered and the offense looked disfunctional - fans were terrified of what would happen with our offense in 2015. It was a sobering moment, made all the worse when the team traded for a new starting left guard after the fourth preseason game. On top of that, the presumed starter at center was cut in favor of a player who had not played the position before. For a position group that relies on communication and chemistry to get better, it was a series...
