Falcons vs. Packers Q&A: Atlanta defense limited by injuries, lack of pass rush

Dave Choate of SB Nation’s Atlanta Falcons blog The Falcoholic answers our questions about the Falcons defense. On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers play the Atlanta Falcons in their first game in over 13 years without Mike McCarthy. Dave Choate of The Falcoholic was kind enough to answer some of our questions about the Falcons. APC: The Falcons have fielded one of the worst defenses in the league, ranking near the bottom in DVOA against both the pass and run. Have the team’s defensive issues stemmed merely from their myriad injuries (Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen, etc.), or have...

Falcons vs. Saints recap: The cold light of day arrives on a night in New Orleans

Falcons vs. Saints recap: The cold light of day arrives on a night in New Orleans

The team’s 31-17 loss to the Saints was not unexpected, but it continues to show just how lousy this Falcons team has become. One-by-one, the things that some of us took for granted heading into 2018 have evaporated. The improvement from Steve Sarkisian’s offense, the talent on defense, and the idea that the Falcons had good enough lines to hang with the NFL’s best. The injuries to Ricardo Allen, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco have absolutely robbed this team of talent and cohesion in a way that has impacted their ability to win games, but it didn’t strip...

SB Nation lists Dan Quinn among most fireable head coaches

SB Nation lists Dan Quinn among most fireable head coaches

We think talk of axing Quinn is very premature, but his seat is definitely heating up a bit. It seems like not even a year ago the Atlanta Falcons had an easy path to the Super Bowl if not for one potential interception bouncing off of Keanu Neal’s leg and into the open arms of a receiver. And just a year before the Falcons had an almost insurmountable lead in the Super Bowl. Now he’s on the receiving end of a lot of criticism, with some calling for his job. Christian D’Andrea of SB Nation’s main hub listed five “most fireable” head coaches after this week’s games: Vance...

Deion Jones’ return could fill the void in player leadership on the Falcons’ defense

Deion Jones’ return could fill the void in player leadership on the Falcons’ defense

After losing all their defensive leaders to injury early in the season, no other player was able to step up and fill the void for the Falcons. With Deion Jones returning to the field, that issue could finally be solved. It’s been painful watching the Falcons’ defense in 2018, outside of a handful of competent performances—the Washington game and the season opener against Philadelphia are the two that come to mind. After losing Deion Jones, Keanu Neal, and Ricardo Allen in the span of a few weeks, the Falcons were scrambling to replace three of their most talented starters. But more...
