Falcons vs. Eagles: 3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in Week 2 win over Eagles

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Fact: Desmond Trufant has an extensive collection of commemorative spoons The Falcons took care of business last night and are now in a three-way tie for first place in the NFC South. Sure, there were a few rocky moments. And sure, if Matt Ryan can’t stop throwing interceptions, then I may eventually put a chair through my television. But there was a lot to like last night. Let’s take a closer look at last night’s game, shall we? Three Up Julio Jones Not only did he break Roddy White’s record for all-time receiving yards as a Falcon, Julio also...

The Falcons have one of the top defenses in the NFL after Week 2, but is it a mirage?

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports The Falcons face an important test next week. The Falcons won last night’s game because of their defense. That’s not to diminish the fine work done by Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, the offensive line and (at times) Matt Ryan, but had it not been for the largely stellar work of the men on the other side of the ball, Atlanta would’ve buckled under the weight of Ryan’s interceptions and Matt Bryant’s shanked field goal and so forth. Did you think the Falcons’ defense would rank among the very best in the NFL, though? My guess is that you did not....

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Sept. 16

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ THAT’S A WIN. The NFL, as selfish as it is, did not take into consideration that we have to work on Monday morning, so they went ahead and scheduled the Eagles-Falcons for Sunday Night Football. I’m exhausted, I have a headache, and my boss bought decaf for some reason. Great start! But we were indeed rewarded for our late evening viewing, as the Falcons blew and then regained the lead on a long do-or-die fourth down touchdown reception by Julio Jones. It’s simply never easy with this football team. The Atlanta Falcons are now a respectable 1-1 and tied...

Where do the Falcons stand headed into Week 2?

Ben Ludeman-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Julio Jones has never paid for a haircut The Falcons are scheduled to play an important football game tomorrow. If the Falcons can’t beat the Eagles in Week 2, the world won’t come to an end. Our pets’ heads won’t fall off. But it will likely set off mass hysteria within the fan base and make Dave cry. So what’s the state of the franchise as Dan Quinn looks to right the ship? On the injury front, the team is relatively healthy. (Now please go find some wood and knock on it.) The only player tabbed to miss tomorrow’s game is Matt Gono. Wes...

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson reeled in two touchdowns Week 1, yet he’ll play second-fiddle to a man on the opposing sideline when he faces the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday: Julio Jones. Jones, an elite threat and arguably the game’s No. 1 receiver, reels in a viewership anytime he steps onto the gridiron.

Dirk Koetter gives rambling, confusing explanation for doomed goal line play-calling

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports The red zone remains one of seemingly countless Achilles heels for the Falcons. The Falcons offense is absolutely drowning in talent and playmakers. There is the league’s best wide receiver in Julio Jones. Impressive sophomore Calvin Ridley who is hoping to outdo his 10 touchdown rookie campaign. Former Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman finally back and healthy. Austin Hooper is a mismatch nightmare. Mohamed Sanu can overpower nearly any defensive back for a contested catch. Qadree Ollison is presumed to be the team’s goal line back. So it was...

Falcons fan confidence hits new 2019 high as Vikings matchup looms in Week 1

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports At the moment, 88% of fans feel confident about the team’s direction, a number that may well have risen after Julio Jones got his new deal. We’re literally hours away from the first game of the year, and it’s been fascinating to see how our Falcoholic FanPulse results have evolved over the last nine months or so. At the end of the 2018 season, something like a third of fans were feeling good about the direction of the team. They were looking at a decimated team that was on the cusp of firing three coordinators, and confidence returned slowly but...

One reason to be confident, one reason to worry about Falcons - Vikings

It’s a tough matchup, for one reason in particular. For a man brimming with confidence about this season, I’m definitely feeling a little nervous about the upcoming matchup. The Falcons at their very best are a match for this Vikings team, I’m quite certain, but we’re not absolutely sure we’re going to get the Falcons at their very best with new coordinators, an unsettled situation at right tackle, and the ghost of a whisper of Julio Jones sitting this one out. I wrote this Saturday, so if he got his deal, I’m happy and you should disregard that last one. Beyond the worry of a...
