Julio Jones can still break Falcons records in the season’s final eight games

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ A bright spot where there aren’t many. We’ve nearly made it through the bye week! Next up, a procession of difficult teams for Atlanta to try to eke out just their second win against, which means there’s probably a lot of difficult-to-watch games in our immediate future. At this point, you’re likely wondering what you possibly have to look forward to, which is a more than fair question that doesn’t have a lot of great answers. For those of you who don’t enjoy records changing hands and really just are hellbent on getting this season over with and...

Fantasy Football Preview: Week 9

Fantasy Football Preview: Week 9

Evan Birchfield is here to prepare you for your fantasy matchups! Greetings Falcoholics! November is now here, and our Atlanta Falcons are on a bye week and thus can’t lose for a change. Last week, however, the team played the Seattle Seahawks in a close one which resulted in a 20-27 loss. Let’s review last week. Matt Schaub stepped in at quarterback as Matt Ryan missed the game with a high ankle sprain. Fantasy-wise, Schaub had a solid outing, finishing the day with 460 passing yards and a passing touchdown which was good for 27 fantasy points. If you have Julio Jones, you were...

Post-game podcast: Will Falcons’ loss to Seahawks end the Dan Quinn era?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports At 1-7, Arthur Blank has a lot to think about over the bye week. The Falcons’ loss to the Seahawks in Week 8 wasn’t the blowout many expected it to be. Will that be enough to delay the Dan Quinn firing to the end of the year? David Walker and Evan Birchfield discuss the game and some of the fallout on The Falcoholic’s post-game podcast. Topics include: The surprisingly good performance from Matt Schaub and whether Matt Ryan would have taken the same and created a win Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper having great games as they should The...

Falcons snap counts for Week 8: Russell Gage’s big day and a shifting defense

Falcons snap counts for Week 8: Russell Gage’s big day and a shifting defense

Photo by Kevin Abele/Icon Sportswire via It was a great day for some young players, but others are still buried on the depth chart. Snap counts tell a story. The one being told this week is a positive one for Russell Gage, a dispiriting one for the likes of Jack Crawford and Foye Oluokun, and a depressing one for Falcons fans who are probably beyond tired of enduring this team at this point.

Remembering Mohamed Sanu’s impact for the Falcons

Remembering Mohamed Sanu’s impact for the Falcons

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports A player once deemed not good enough ultimately proved to be a true difference maker and fan favorite. Heading into the offseason in 2016, the Falcons had to bolster their offense. They had become stagnant as an overall unit. With age catching up to Roddy White and Leonard Hankerson failing to develop, Dan Quinn knew they needed someone to complement Julio Jones. A true No. 2 receiver who could make contested catches and become a consistent option for Matt Ryan was desperately needed. Most people were calling for Marvin Jones or Travis Benjamin to be the...

The Falcons need a fresh start to live up to roster’s potential

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports It’s time the franchise partially hits the reset button. When you look at the Atlanta Falcons’ season in a nutshell, it’s just hard not to feel sad about the wasted talent. In the right hands, this team would be a firestorm booming with thunder, a team that leaves everyone in the league afraid. Right now, they’re a whimper, a team that anyone can beat, a lost cause. It’s just not right that players like Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Deion Jones, Grady Jarrett, Ricardo Allen, Jake Matthews, Alex Mack, Devonta Freeman, Adrian Clayborn, Desmond Trufant,...

Report: Julio Jones says team problems are on players, says Dan Quinn “can’t do more for us”

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ You have to listen when Julio Jones speaks. Julio Jones has always been a quiet player. He has avoided the big attitude many top wide receivers have, never complaining when he fails to get a certain number of targets. His team first focus has been on display his entire career. When Julio does have something to say, it is notable. He and other top players have spent weeks alluding to problems in the locker room, with many wondering about effort and dedication from some of the team’s underperforming players. He spoke up after Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles...

Falcons vs. Rams: Who was the offensive player of the game?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Does Dirk Koetter deserve to finish this season? The Falcons are 1-6 and their offense managed 10 points at home against a Rams team that had lost 3 straight. You’d be forgiven for not being inspired by the performance of the offense, yet here we are. Matt Ryan went down with an ankle injury because this offensive line decided to make Dante Fowler relevant again. There were a few bright spots, but this was not a game you’re going to want to relive. Vote for your offensive MVP below. Julio Jones For all the talk of Jalen Ramsey joining the Rams, Julio...
