Here’s five good reasons the Falcons will make the playoffs, courtesy of NFL.com

A list that includes “Matt Ryan remains a badass” is alright by us. Chances are you can think of more than five reasons why the Falcons will make the playoffs in 2018. You’d have to be pretty dour to think they no shot, even in a crowded NFC, given that this is arguably the most talented roster the team has ever fielded. But that’s inside this fanbase, of course. To understand why analysts with no real ties to the team might be bullish on them, you need look no further than this column from Marc Sessler at NFL.com, who sums up the reasons to think this team is primed for the...

What is your absolute worst Atlanta Falcons prediction ever?

What is your absolute worst Atlanta Falcons prediction ever?

We bet you have a few that you’re ashamed to even look back on. As the offseason rolls on, every SB Nation NFL site is going to be considering some big questions about their teams. Today’s is a particularly resonant one for Falcons fans, who love predictions and have the same spotty track record as any other fanbase. The question here is this: What was your worst Falcons prediction ever? If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you’re well aware that I’ve had some doozies over the years, but it’s still hard to top my disdain for Matt Ryan. I basically predicted he...

Top 5 Atlanta Falcons 2017 Offensive Performances: No. 4

Top 5 Atlanta Falcons 2017 Offensive Performances: No. 4

Matt Ryan has never had a brain freeze in his life. #4. Matt Ryan - 21/30, 321 yards, TD 116.1 QB Rating (Week 1 vs. Bears) All eyes were on the Atlanta Falcons as they took the field for the 2017 season opener. What overshadowed what was to take place on the field were the still fresh flashbacks of the massacre that was Super Bowl 51. The Chicago Bears supposedly was an inferior opponent thanks to a lackluster tenure from their head coach, a questionable wide receiving corps, a career backup as a starting quarterback, and a little discontent in the front office. However, in their...

Matt Ryan: Julio Jones will be at annual offseason passing camp

Matt Ryan: Julio Jones will be at annual offseason passing camp

Ryan has held an offseason passing camp in Miami the last few years, and doesn’t expect any holdouts. In case you missed the news, Julio Jones has a slight disagreement with management and is missing a little bit of practice. Fines are being racked up for each missed minicamp date, but it doesn’t mean Jones is too busy hanging out with Terrell Owens to miss pass camp. Matt Ryan says a group of 12 players will get together in July and he expects Julio to be a part of that— Kelsey Conway (@FalconsKelsey) June 13, 2018 Ryan started an offseason passing camp a few years ago to help...

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Matt Ryan once again worked without his favorite target Wednesday on the second day of the Atlanta Falcons' ''mandatory'' mini-camp, yet the quarterback said he's not worried about wide receiver Julio Jones being absent and plans to work out with him soon.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan expects Julio Jones to attend passing camp in July

Through the early portion of the offseason workouts for the Atlanta Falcons, star wide receiver Julio Jones has been notably absent from the practice field. This has now bled over to the mandatory portion of the workouts. In response to that, the Falcons have expressed no real concern at this point about where things stand […] The post Falcons QB Matt Ryan expects Julio Jones to attend passing camp in July appeared first on ClutchPoints.
The Falcons will try to make Julio happy. But can they?

The Falcons will try to make Julio happy. But can they?

Could they have seen this coming? Possibly. Over the past 10 months, the Atlanta Falcons made Devonta Freeman the NFL’s highest-paid back and Matt Ryan its highest-paid anything. With Julio Jones, once the league’s top-salaried receiver, slipping to No. 7, and with the Falcons taking another Alabama wideout in Round 1 this April … well, maybe they should have assumed some famous feathers would get ruffled.

There are a few big items in the first mandatory practice of the offseason. Today is the start of mandatory minicamp for the Atlanta Falcons, an opportunity for the team to come together in an extremely mandated fashion and practice. Nothing like team-enforced togetherness to get things started! Here’s what you need to know.

Handful of Falcons make Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players for 2018

Uncle Pete puts a portion of the Falcons’ population on his pickings. “Uncle” Pete Prisco over at CBS Sports, a longtime defender of the Atlanta Falcons, has included a couple of members on the team’s roster on his list of the best NFL players at the moment. WR Julio Jones (13), QB Matt Ryan (41), DT Grady Jarrett (53), C Alex Mack (66) and LB Deion Jones (89) all make Prisco’s slate, with his reasoning for each selection below. J. Jones - He remains one of the top receivers in the league. But he does need to catch more touchdowns. Ryan - His numbers were down some from his...

Matt Ryan is a top five quarterback; just ask theScore’s QB rankings

Fact: Matt Ryan invented both the “whip” and the “nae nae” Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has a big year ahead of him. He’s one season removed from his MVP honors. He just got a shiny new contract. We’re well within the “window of opportunity.” If he’s going to harness his talents and make everyone around him better, now is the time. Much of Ryan’s success going forward will depend on his confidence. If theScore’s latest QB rankings are any indication, Ryan has every reason to be confident. They rank him fifth among NFL quarterbacks, behind only Russell...

Matt Ryan is #29 on the 2018 NFL Top 100

The Atlanta Falcons QB wasn’t the MVP this year, but he still had a great year. Matt Ryan didn’t not have an MVP season in 2018. We know that’s partly due to a strong year from other players, and partly because every fourth pass caromed malignly off the hands of a receiver, a too-tall blade of grass, or rogue air molecules and into the waiting hands of a defensive back. These things happen. Still, it’s obvious that his peers respect Ryan, even if his numbers took a nosedive. That’s why Ryan is #29 on the NFL Top 100 for 2018. He was #10 a year ago, in his MVP season. “He’s...

What if Harry Douglas was able to stay on his feet in the 2012 Conference Championship Game?

It’s not the biggest recent what if for Atlanta, but it’s one that still rankles. So today, we’re here to consider a what if. First of all, I really didn’t want to get into the Super Bowl here, because it’s Monday, because it’s the first thing everyone’s mind goes to anyways, and because nobody needs that trauma with their afternoon angst. There were a million other directions I could have gone with this—what if the Falcons hadn’t traded up for Julio? What if Kyle Shanahan stayed in 2017? What if the Falcons didn’t draft Matt Ryan—but I think this one has haunted me...
