Falcons vs. Vikings: Who was the defensive player of the game?

Falcons vs. Vikings: Who was the defensive player of the game?

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports Yeah, I know. Just roll with it. The Falcons’ first game with Dan Quinn as defensive coordinator saw them give up 28 points. It was not an inspiring performance, but it’s important to keep in mind that guys like Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Deion Jones are playing their first real football in a long time. Some level of rusty play should be expected. That said, cast your vote for the tepid defensive player of the game. Grady Jarrett What can you say about this guy at this point? He was a wrecking ball again, constantly getting through the Vikings...

Pressure is on Dan Quinn, Falcons after all-around abysmal showing vs. Vikings

Pressure is on Dan Quinn, Falcons after all-around abysmal showing vs. Vikings

Ben Ludeman-USA TODAY Sports A complete inept performance leaves the Falcons already searching for answers. For all the buzz about their roster talent, the glaring holes and inconsistency remain. As NFL preview articles were being established and podcasts were being recorded, there was a common viewpoint about the Atlanta Falcons. They are going to contend for a playoff spot based on their high-powered offense and key players returning from long-term injury. To have Devonta Freeman, Deion Jones, Ricardo Allen, and Keanu Neal for a full season obviously bolsters their chances of...

Dan Quinn opens up about importance of having Keanu Neal, others back on defense

Dan Quinn opens up about importance of having Keanu Neal, others back on defense

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports He’s happy. Very happy. It goes without saying that the Falcons defense was destroyed by injuries last year. It’s nearly impossible to replace guys like Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Deion Jones without a significant drop-off in performance. That’s not a knock on the guys who stepped up in their absence — I absolutely love what Damontae Kazee and Foye Oluokun did last year and their potential going into this season. Yet guys like Neal, Allen and Jones are special talents. Dan Quinn is excited to have these guys back for another key reason:...

Thomas Dimitroff: The Falcons will continue to build around “pillar players”

Thomas Dimitroff: The Falcons will continue to build around “pillar players”

Photo by Scott Cunningham/ It’s the latest confirmation that Atlanta will always prioritize its stars. The Falcons have indicated, with their words and their actions, the same consistent message over the last decade-plus. That message is simply this: If you’re a star and you’re a leader, you belong on the Atlanta Falcons. That message has waxed and waned over the years—we all remember the team letting go of John Abraham, don’t we?—but it has been consistent in the Dan Quinn era. The Falcons have prioritized the likes of Matt Ryan, Deion Jones, Grady Jarrett, and Julio...

Duke Riley and Jermaine Grace outperforming Bruce Carter

Duke Riley and Jermaine Grace outperforming Bruce Carter

Now back from injury, Duke Riley is... good? We don’t know how that happened either. The Falcons are expected to keep five linebackers going into 2019. We know that Deion Jones, Foyesade Oluokun, and De’Vondre Campbell will start in the base defense and are guaranteed roster spots. That means Jermaine Grace, Duke Riley, Bruce Carter, Chase Middleton, Del’Shawn Phillips, Tre’ Crawford, Richie Brown, and Yurik Bethune are battling for two roster spots. The least surprising thing we have seen from the linebackers is Grace looking like a playmaker. Fans will remember him from his time...
