Falcons snap counts for yet another loss to the Cardinals

Falcons snap counts for yet another loss to the Cardinals

Christian Petersen/ The subtle changes the Falcons promised were awfully subtle. At this point, the Falcons are who they are, and they show no signs of changing. Their offense has picked up speed in recent weeks but the defense remains a kind of lethal trouble spot they can’t seem to fix. As Dan Quinn promised it would be, changes to playing time this week were subtle to the point of hardly being noticeable, with the exception of Kendall Sheffield taking on a huge role with Desmond Trufant out. Let’s talk snap counts. Offense Matt Ryan: 69 Jake Matthews: 69 Alex Mack: 69 Kaleb...

Offense Matt Ryan: 74 Jake Matthews: 74 James Carpenter: 74 Alex Mack: 74 Wes Schweitzer: 74 Kaleb McGary: 74 Mohamed Sanu: 62 Austin Hooper: 62 Calvin Ridley: 61 Julio Jones: 56 Devonta Freeman: 40 Ito Smith: 35 Luke Stocker: 17 Russell Gage: 16 Justin Hardy: 9 Keith Smith: 8 Jaeden Graham: 4 The Falcons got their first fully healthy game from a five man offensive line in a while, and they managed to actually score 30-plus points, avoid turnovers aside from a single irrelevant late game pick, and allowed...

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The issue isn’t with how many snaps players are getting, but how they’re being utilized (and playing). Let’s get into the snap counts. You’ve got nowhere else to be on a Tuesday morning, after all. Offense Matt Ryan: 80 Jake Matthews: 80 James Carpenter: 80 Kaleb McGary: 80 Alex Mack: 74 Austin Hooper: 66 Wes Schweitzer: 64 Mohamed Sanu: 63 Julio Jones: 63 Calvin Ridley: 60 Devonta Freeman: 50 Ito Smith: 30 Luke Stocker: 24 Jamon Brown: 16 Russell Gage: 14 Justin Hardy: 14 Keith Smith: 11 Ty Sambrailo: 9 Jaeden Graham: 2 The offense is an absolute mess...

Mohamed Sanu is the Falcons brother of the week for Week 3

Mohamed Sanu is the Falcons brother of the week for Week 3

Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via For the Brotherhood! Hey Falcoholics, I’m back with another edition of the “Brother of the Week.” This weekly segment highlights an Atlanta Falcons player who displayed selflessness and gave their all for the team, which fits what Dan Quinn is always saying he’s looking for from this football team. Last week’s selection was offensive tackle Jake Matthews. Without further ado, the Brother of the Week for week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts is wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. It wasn’t easy selecting someone this week, considering the team...

Falcons - Colts snap counts: Numbers and lessons from another lackluster game

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via The Falcons have fairly streamlined groupings on offense and defense, but it’s not translating into wins. Offense Matt Ryan: 61 Jake Matthews: 61 James Carpenter; 61 Alex Mack: 61 Kaleb McGary: 61 Devonta Freeman: 55 Austin Hooper: 54 Jamon Brown: 53 Mohamed Sanu: 50 Julio Jones: 46 Calvin Ridley: 46 Luke Stocker: 23 Keith Smith: 11 Russell Gage: 9 Wes Schweitzer: 8 Justin Hardy: 5 Kenjon Barner: 3 Ito Smith: 3 This is a fairly streamlined offense at this point, personnel-wise. Injury forced Kenjon Barner and Wes Schweitzer into the...
