Falcons vs. Dolphins snap counts: Priorities and wide receivers

Falcons vs. Dolphins snap counts: Priorities and wide receivers

Whatcha doing, Falcons? Let’s not dwell on this game’s particulars any longer and just get into the snap counts. Good? Good. Offense Matt Ryan: 57 Andy Levitre: 57 Jake Matthews: 57 Alex Mack: 57 Wes Schweitzer: 57 Ryan Schraeder: 57 Austin Hooper: 52 Taylor Gabriel: 48 Julio Jones: 45 Justin Hardy: 42 Devonta Freeman: 42 Tevin Coleman: 18 Levine Toilolo: 15 Marvin Hall: 12 Derrick Coleman: 5 Andre Roberts: 5 Eric Saubert Bluntly, I don’t get it.

Our laments and takeaways from Falcons vs. Dolphins in Week 6

Our laments and takeaways from Falcons vs. Dolphins in Week 6

It wasn’t pretty, so we’ll be blunt. Adam Schultz Jay Cutler is a joke. A joke just beat the Super Bowl runner up. Think about that. Think. Tom Brady ripping our heart out makes some sorta sense. Jay Cutler?! Anyone that tells me that there is no hangover will get hot coffee to the face. Wake upppppp! Matt Chambers It feels like the Falcons are trying to create their own obstacles they need to overcome. Can you tell me they intentionally alternated trash play and fouls on defense? Did a real human being really think they should stop feeding Devonta Freeman and to stay far, far away...

Brian “Over The” Hill: Falcons waive fifth round RB after zero NFL carries; promote WR

Brian “Over The” Hill: Falcons waive fifth round RB after zero NFL carries; promote WR

We will always have the preseason memories. The Atlanta Falcons shuffled their roster today, and the victim was fifth round running back Brian Hill. We kept trying to figure out where Hill was going to fit in. Was he going to replace Devonta Freeman next season if he left in free agency. Nope, Freeman signed a long-term deal. Was he going to be an upgrade over Terron Ward? Nope, Ward easily outperformed Hill throughout preseason. I guess the Falcons couldn’t figure it out, either, because they just burned up Atlanta’s fifth round pick. Falcons Sign WR Marvin Hall and Waive RB Brian...

Atlanta Falcons talk: Will this be a career year for Devonta Freeman?

Atlanta Falcons talk: Will this be a career year for Devonta Freeman?

He’s on pace for one. Tonight, let’s talk about one of the best current Falcons. I’m speaking of Devonta Freeman, who somehow slipped to the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, spent a season toiling behind a cooked Steven Jackson, and then broke out in spectacular fashions. He’s one of the better runners in the entire NFL, something he seemingly confirms on a weekly basis. Is he headed for a career year in 2017? As I’ve alluded numerous times over the last week or so, I fully expect Freeman to have one of the finest season of his young career. I think he’ll wind up with a...

The Falcons have the best backfield in the NFL, per ESPN

The Falcons have the best backfield in the NFL, per ESPN

Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are forces of nature. The Atlanta Falcons clearly have one of the best running back tandems in the NFL. Devonta Freeman is one of the league’s leading rushers every year, he’s a remarkable blocker, and he’s a perfectly capable receiver when called upon. Tevin Coleman has lethal speed and can break huge plays on the ground and through the air. Given that, it’s little surprise that ESPN ranked the duo as the best backfield tandem in the entire league, for the reasons listed above and the stated reasons below. While many backfields feature players...

Giving away Falcons awards one quarter of the way through the 2017 NFL season

Giving away Falcons awards one quarter of the way through the 2017 NFL season

Who is most deserving so far? With 12 games to go, the truth is that we simply don’t know who will end up being this team’s MVP, offensive player of the year, defensive player of the year, and rookie of the year. We do know who those players would be if the season ended today, however, and that’s where I’m going with this article. You could probably guess. Here, I’ll look at the players I think are most deserving for these awards after four weeks, and who I think might win them at the end of the year. You’ll notice I’m very bullish on Devonta Freeman and De’Vondre Campbell,...

One Falcon makes the Pro Football Focus first quarter All-Pro Team

One Falcon makes the Pro Football Focus first quarter All-Pro Team

It’s about one quarter of a prestigious honor. We’re four games through the season, which means it’s time for the quarter season awards to start rolling in. Yes, this is a thing NFL media does. Yes, we participate. The good news is that Pro Football Focus has correctly identified at least one Falcon who belongs on their list of All-Pro players through the first four weeks, which is always nice. In addition to putting Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman as honorable mentions on the team, they chose Alex Mack as their selection at center. These are all logical enough choices, but Mack...

Atlanta Falcons snap counts for Week 4 vs. Buffalo

Atlanta Falcons snap counts for Week 4 vs. Buffalo

How did the team divvy up snaps, and what can we learn? The Atlanta Falcons lost to the Buffalo Bills, obviously. That’s done, over with, we’re on to the bye week. Before we get there, though, let’s talk some snap counts. Everybody loves a good snap count or two. Offense Andy Levitre: 75 Jake Matthews: 75 Ty Sambrailo: 75 Wes Schweitzer: 75 Alex Mack: 75 Matt Ryan: 75 Taylor Gabriel: 60 Austin Hooper: 59 Justin Hardy: 58 Devonta Freeman: 49 Mohamed Sanu: 31 Levine Toilolo: 29 Nick Williams: 28 Tevin Coleman: 27 Derrick Coleman: 15 Julio Jones: 15 Andre Roberts: 4 I think the most...

Projecting the Atlanta Falcons statistical performance against the Bills in Week 4

Projecting the Atlanta Falcons statistical performance against the Bills in Week 4

What kind of numbers will the Falcons put up against the Bills defense? It’s projection time again, this time for the Falcons’ Week 4 matchup against the Bills. Let’s talk numbers, and once again laugh at me for last week’s predictions. A week ago, I said that Ryan would throw just 25 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns against an interception. As it turns out, he threw 35 times for 294 yards and two touchdowns, plus three interceptions. He’s been a hard man to predict this year, to put it mildly. I also undersold Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman’s rushing totals and was...

A Closer Look: Falcons ride the Devonta Freeman train

A Closer Look: Falcons ride the Devonta Freeman train

Relying on Freeman more often is continuing to pay off. For all of the questions surrounding the Falcons’ offense, there were still plenty of certainties going into the season. Some of these certainties feature players that haven’t played up to their high standards yet. That isn’t the case with Devonta Freeman. After being rewarded with a well-deserved payday last month, the star running back continues to perform at an elite level. Taking a bigger workload over the past two weeks has done wonders for the offense. They have been far more productive since giving Freeman more carries....
