Duke Riley is continuing to struggle, and may play himself out of a job

Duke Riley is continuing to struggle, and may play himself out of a job

We might have seen everything we need to see out of the sophomore linebacker. Preseason is a great time for overreactions. Remember when there was growing support for starting Matt Schaub in 2016, in part due to some preseason struggles? Things worked out pretty well that season with Schaub on the bench. There’s a lot of players that absolutely do not need the snaps. We know what Julio Jones has got. Ryan is a proven player. We had our eyes on the unproven players. Rookies and struggling players had some extra eyes on them last night. Deadrin Senat? Woah buddy, he is hurting people out...

Falcons vs. Jets recap: Preseason football at its ugliest still helps Atlanta

Falcons vs. Jets recap: Preseason football at its ugliest still helps Atlanta

The Falcons have a lot more to go on for their position battles than they did Friday morning. The purpose of preseason games, as you well know, is not to win. Winning feels nice for about five minutes, but if you haven’t gotten a good look at your team and started to evaluate your 90 man roster as a result of that, then a preseason game has done you absolutely zero good. That’s the cheeriest note I can sound after the Falcons “treated” us to four quarters of objectionable football in a game where Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman sat, Matt Ryan threw one pass, and the starters got...

Atlanta Falcons vs. New York Jets halftime update and open thread

Atlanta Falcons vs. New York Jets halftime update and open thread

It happens every year, but the Atlanta Falcons have started out slow. Hello darkness my old friend. We typically enter preseason cautiously optimistic to see the Atlanta Falcons dominating their opponent. That usually doesn’t happen, and instead we see defensive breakdowns and an anemic offense. We have been reminding you all week that preseason doesn’t matter. We see this every preseason, then the Falcons turn it on during the season. The Falcons started without two of their biggest offensive weapons: Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman. How did we get to 17-0 against the Jets? Matt Ryan...

Devonta Freeman, Julio Jones won’t play tonight against the Jets

Devonta Freeman, Julio Jones won’t play tonight against the Jets

A coach’s decision, I guess? If you were really hoping to see Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones for like, I dunno, five snaps, you’re out of luck. The team has included both players on their list of inactives for the Friday night tilt against the Jets, alongside injured Falcons Matt Bryant and Ty Sambrailo. That leaves 86 other players to suit up. Opportunity follows in the wake of all these inactives, as you might imagine. With no Julio, the Falcons’ young receivers will get in the game even more quickly and at least one of them will get a handful of extra snaps to prove himself....

Falcons WR Julio Jones wants to ‘be on the same page’ with Matt Ryan in red zone

There is no question that the Atlanta Falcons led by Julio Jones and Matt Ryan are one of the best offenses in the NFL. Even the best teams have problems and for the Falcons they had a ton of issues last year in the red zone and it’s something they have spent a lot of […] The post Falcons WR Julio Jones wants to ‘be on the same page’ with Matt Ryan in red zone appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Falcons training camp: a look at Tuesday’s activities, and a tracker for Wednesday

Falcons training camp: a look at Tuesday’s activities, and a tracker for Wednesday

Let’s take a look at how Tuesday in Falconland went. The Falcons got another installment of training camp in Tuesday, a day where Vic Beasley was Vic Beastley, future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed wore a Falcons hat and the first unofficial depth chart of 2018 came out. The team also got some red zone work in, Julio Jones talked a little and Wes Schweitzer put a feather in his 2018 cap. On the health front, DE Takkarist McKinley continues to get back into the routine of things. He went through individual and team drills Tuesday, a sign that he will get into regular practice at some...

Falcons vs. Jets preseason 2018: New York is a slight favorite, but please don’t spend your money on this game

Falcons vs. Jets preseason 2018: New York is a slight favorite, but please don’t spend your money on this game

Don’t bet on preseason you’re making me sad. Look, I get it. You love to gamble, the NFL has quasi-embraced it, and you’ve got visions of money dancing in front of your eyes. Enough money to buy that Julio Jones jersey you’ve always wanted, so you can make leaping one handed grabs in your own back yard. Heck, enough money to buy two of them. But please tell me you are not going to put money down on a preseason game. Please? If you promise, I’ll tell you what the odds are for the game ahead, since I’m sure you’re curious. Okay, good, here you go. The Jets are currently...

The Falcoholic’s Cory Woodroof talks Julio Jones, 2017 offense on Over the Night w/Matt Harab

Have Cory’s silky smooth voice ease you into the weekend. As you prepare for your last weekend without Falcons football for quite some time, let our own Cory Woodroof (who is me, the person writing this post) give you a little insight into the this and that in Falcondom. Woodroof (who is me) hopped on SB Nation Radio’s Over the Night with Matt Harab to discuss Julio Jones showing up for camp on time, why the 2017 offense took a step back and how the NFC South is shaping up for 2018. SB Nation Atlanta Falcons writer Cory Woodroof joins Over The Night w/ Matt Harab...

Watch out: Julio Jones ‘truly 100 percent’ healthy for first time in preseason

A remarkable thing about Julio Jones is that he can be the best player on the field when not feeling his best. He’s turbo-charged on sore toes, brilliant on balky ankles and flying downfield with a hurt hip.

Veteran Falcons receivers continue to pay it forward

Veteran Falcons receivers continue to pay it forward

Calvin Ridley is in good hands, learning lessons from Julio Jones that were once taught to him by Roddy White. Falcons’ first-round draft pick Calvin Ridley is looking to make an immediate impact in Atlanta, after being selected with the 26th overall pick in the NFL Draft this year. He comes into the NFL as, arguably, the most polished wide receiver in his draft class, but he’s still a rookie nonetheless. The transition from college football to the NFL is a daunting one for most, and can be overwhelming for some. To make that transition easier, teams often hope that some of their...
