What Atlanta Falcons records will be on the table in 2017?

What Atlanta Falcons records will be on the table in 2017?

A handful, at least. Now that we’re three months into the offseason—or maybe it just feels like that, given how tragedy ages you—it’s time to start thinking ahead. One of my big focuses over this weekend is going to be free agency, and the free agents the Falcons should be chasing. While I’m catching up on those names, though, I do want to note that the Falcons can break a couple of records in this upcoming season. After their all-out assault on the record books in 2016, which saw Matt Ryan holding every single franchise passing mark and Matt Bryant setting the franchise scoring...

Matt Bryant has now been part of two epic collapses

Matt Bryant has now been part of two epic collapses

Placekicker now involved in something worse than the Trey Junkin Game Matt Bryant must be bad luck. The Atlanta Falcons’ placekicker has now been part of a pair of epic collapses. He was, of course, part of Atlanta blowing a 25-point lead to the New England Patriots on Sunday in Super Bowl LI. He was also part of the Trey Junkin Game for the New York Giants way back in the 2002 season, with the Giants blowing a 24-point lead in a Wild-Card game. Sadly for Bryant, he didn’t get a chance to do anything about the outcome of either game. In the case of the Giants’ game — and, yes, I...

Michael Strahan was a mentor to Falcons kicker Matt Bryant

When Matt Bryant arrived to the New York Giants for the 2002 season, Michael Strahan had already collected four Pro Bowl selections and was on his way to an illustrious Hall of Fame career. Related:Ex-Giants kicker Josh Brown: What I did was wrong, period. Bryant was signed as an undrafted free agent and Strahan took the young kicker under his wing. It was an action that Bryant would never forget. “He took me under his wing when I got in there,” Bryant said of Strahan. “I think that helped tremendously. Some of the things he told me…he said, ‘You have this position because you...
Life begins at 41 for Falcons kicker

Life begins at 41 for Falcons kicker

Matt Bryant spent four years waiting for his chance to break into the National Football League. Fifteen years later, the Atlanta Falcons kicker will attempt to cap a career of remarkable longevity with a Super Bowl victory. It has been a long and winding route to the biggest stage of all for the 41-year-old, who worked in a Texas pawn shop after going undrafted before finally entering the NFL through the back door.

Matt Bryant happy to miss Pro Bowl to play in Super Bowl 51 instead

Matt Bryant happy to miss Pro Bowl to play in Super Bowl 51 instead

Of course he is. Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant won’t be taking the field at the Pro Bowl tomorrow despite earning his first bid in his 15-year career. Instead, he’ll be traveling to Houston to get ready to play in Super Bowl LI. Bryant has been reliable for the Falcons throughout his tenure, coming through in the clutch on game-winning drive after game-winning drive. He has deserved Pro Bowl recognition for some time, and it is wonderful that he finally made his way onto the roster. But he is not upset about missing his first Pro Bowl. Bryant and his teammates are precisely...
