Falcons snap counts: Making sense of playing time in another crushing loss

Falcons snap counts: Making sense of playing time in another crushing loss

Photo by Mark Brown/ Is the problem with who is playing or who is coaching them? Offense Matt Ryan: 74 Jake Matthews: 74 James Carpenter: 74 Alex Mack: 74 Wes Schweitzer: 74 Kaleb McGary: 74 Mohamed Sanu: 62 Austin Hooper: 62 Calvin Ridley: 61 Julio Jones: 56 Devonta Freeman: 40 Ito Smith: 35 Luke Stocker: 17 Russell Gage: 16 Justin Hardy: 9 Keith Smith: 8 Jaeden Graham: 4 The Falcons got their first fully healthy game from a five man offensive line in a while, and they managed to actually score 30-plus points, avoid turnovers aside from a single irrelevant late game pick, and allowed...

Tweet Recap: Falcons vs. Texans

Tweet Recap: Falcons vs. Texans

Tim Warner/ Let’s see what Twitter had to say! Hey Falcoholics! Our beloved Atlanta Falcons fell to the Houston Texans 32-53 on Sunday, crushing what little optimism remained following the prior weeks. Many of you chimed in during the game, so let’s review what the fans had to say on Twitter. The Falcons received the ball to start the game. That opening kickoff put me in the right frame of mind— The Falcoholic (@TheFalcoholic) October 6, 2019 Atlanta struck first, by way of a 14-yard touchdown reception by Mohamed Sanu. The Falcons had a 7-0 lead. SANUUUUUUUU TD— Kevin...

Falcons’ Matt Ryan finds Mohamed Sanu for diving TD vs. Texans

After last week’s loss, many were wondering if the Atlanta Falcons should blow up the team and start over. Today they are off to a hot start against the Houston Texans. After driving inside the Houston 20-yard line, Matt Ryan was able to find Mohamed Sanu on a short crossing route, leaving Sanu to do […] The post Falcons’ Matt Ryan finds Mohamed Sanu for diving TD vs. Texans appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Austin Hooper is the Falcons ‘Brother of the Week’ for Week 4

Austin Hooper is the Falcons ‘Brother of the Week’ for Week 4

David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via For the Brotherhood! Hey Falcoholics, I’m back with another edition of the “Brother of the Week.” This weekly segment highlights an Atlanta Falcons player who displayed selflessness and gave their all for the team, which fits what Dan Quinn is always saying he’s looking for from this football team. Last week’s selection was wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Without further ado, the Brother of the Week for Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans is tight end Austin Hooper. Similar to last week against the Indianapolis Colts, the Falcons played...

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The issue isn’t with how many snaps players are getting, but how they’re being utilized (and playing). Let’s get into the snap counts. You’ve got nowhere else to be on a Tuesday morning, after all. Offense Matt Ryan: 80 Jake Matthews: 80 James Carpenter: 80 Kaleb McGary: 80 Alex Mack: 74 Austin Hooper: 66 Wes Schweitzer: 64 Mohamed Sanu: 63 Julio Jones: 63 Calvin Ridley: 60 Devonta Freeman: 50 Ito Smith: 30 Luke Stocker: 24 Jamon Brown: 16 Russell Gage: 14 Justin Hardy: 14 Keith Smith: 11 Ty Sambrailo: 9 Jaeden Graham: 2 The offense is an absolute mess...

Falcons injury report: Kenjon Barner ruled out, everyone else a go vs. Titans

Falcons injury report: Kenjon Barner ruled out, everyone else a go vs. Titans

Photo by Bobby Ellis/ We’ll see what happens in the return game with Barner sidelined. The Falcons released the final injury report of the week on Friday in advance of Sunday’s matchup with the Titans. Kenjon Barner is the only player listed as out for Sunday’s game. Barner landed in the league’s concussion protocol during last week’s loss to the Colts. He’s also rehabbing a knee injury. We may see Mohamed Sanu or Justin Hardy returning punts, and Ito Smith or Kendall Sheffield may be on kick return duty. Smith, of course, was also in the concussion protocol this week,...

Falcons RB Kenjon Barner out against Titans, with ripple effects down the depth chart

Falcons RB Kenjon Barner out against Titans, with ripple effects down the depth chart

Photo by Bobby Ellis/ The Falcons now have to find new solution at the returner spots for a week and will likely activate Brian Hill or Qadree Ollison. The Falcons haven’t leaned on Kenjon Barner very heavily on offense to this point—he has one target, one reception, and four yards—but he has been the team’s primary returner. The fact that he’s been declared out for Week 4 against the Titans leaves Atlanta needing to find new solutions before Sunday. We’ve already covered the options at returner, where Mohamed Sanu and Justin Hardy are in the mix to return punts and Kendall...

Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy in mix at returner spots if Kenjon Barner misses Week 4

Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy in mix at returner spots if Kenjon Barner misses Week 4

Photo by Bobby Ellis/ At this point, it’s easier to list things that Mohamed Sanu has not been considered for. Kenjon Barner has been a pleasant surprise for the Falcons, putting together a solid campaign as a returner to this point. He’s also been banged up almost the entire time, and there’s a chance that he won’t be out there against the Titans in Week 4. If that happens, though, Ben Kotwica has a fallback plan. Like many other Falcons fallback plans, it involves Mohamed Sanu. Falcons special teams coach Ben Kotwica said the options if Kenjon Barner can’t come back from...

Hey Falcoholics, I’m back with another edition of the “Brother of the Week.” This weekly segment highlights an Atlanta Falcons player who displayed selflessness and gave their all for the team, which fits what Dan Quinn is always saying he’s looking for from this football team. Last week’s selection was offensive tackle Jake Matthews. Without further ado, the Brother of the Week for week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts is wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. It wasn’t easy selecting someone this week, considering the team...

Falcons - Colts snap counts: Numbers and lessons from another lackluster game

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via The Falcons have fairly streamlined groupings on offense and defense, but it’s not translating into wins. Offense Matt Ryan: 61 Jake Matthews: 61 James Carpenter; 61 Alex Mack: 61 Kaleb McGary: 61 Devonta Freeman: 55 Austin Hooper: 54 Jamon Brown: 53 Mohamed Sanu: 50 Julio Jones: 46 Calvin Ridley: 46 Luke Stocker: 23 Keith Smith: 11 Russell Gage: 9 Wes Schweitzer: 8 Justin Hardy: 5 Kenjon Barner: 3 Ito Smith: 3 This is a fairly streamlined offense at this point, personnel-wise. Injury forced Kenjon Barner and Wes Schweitzer into the...

Falcons to bring punter Matt Wile to practice squad with Matt Bosher ailing

Falcons to bring punter Matt Wile to practice squad with Matt Bosher ailing

Photo by Scott Cunningham/ He’s a familiar face, and he might be in line for work on Sunday against the Colts if Bosher’s condition doesn’t improve. Matt Bosher was active last week, but he clearly wasn’t feeling his best. The Falcons trotted him out there for a lack of better options—though I still want to see Mohamed Sanu punt for an entire game—but most of his punts went short, and there was a concern heading into Week 3 that this was an issue that wasn’t just going to magically go away. Those fears appear to still be there, as the Falcons have brought punter Matt Wile...

Falcons snap counts and notes for Week 2 against the Eagles

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports The Falcons won, by and large, by leaning on their best players. What a novel idea. There are few surprises in the snap counts, but that doedsn’t mean you won’t learn anything from them. Let’s dive in. Offense Matt Ryan: 66 Jake Matthews: 66 James Carpenter: 66 Alex Mack: 66 Jamon Brown: 66 Mohamed Sanu: 55 Julio Jones: 54 Austin Hooper: 50 Calvin Ridley: 42 Devonta Freeman: 41 Kaleb McGary: 37 Luke Stocker: 30 Ty Sambrailo: 29 Ito Smith: 25 Justin Hardy: 11 Keith Smith: 11 Russell Gage: 9 Jaeden Graham: 2 We have to see what Kaleb McGary’s...
