Should the Ravens take a chance on Roddy White or Devin Hester?

On the morning of July 26, 2016, the Atlanta Falcons released Devin Hester. Hester is the second receiver the Falcons have released this offseason. Back in March, the Falcons let go of Roddy White who had been with the team for 11 years. Both Hester and White are players who were formerly stars but both are getting up there in terms of age. Yet, both Hester and White aren't seeing their release as the end of the road. They have both said that they want don't want to retire and that they want to play for a contender. So should the Ravens try to bring either to Baltimore? The Ravens have a...

Falcons training camp is 9 days away, so here’s 9 improvements we hope to see

Only nine, you say? Yes. I know what you’re thinking. “Just nine improvements, Dave?” Yes, just nine. The 2015 Falcons were a mediocre, mistake-prone team Communication. This is a big one, given that there were way too many fumbles, interceptions, botched snaps, and snippiness between coaches and players in the first year of Dan Quinn’s regime. Tackling. Please, Football Gods, don’t let me see another quarterback break three tackles en route to a first down. My heart can’t take it. Second receiver play. Roddy White’s mediocre 2015 was not entirely Roddy White’s fault, but...

Ask Roddy White your Falcons and football questions

Get A Moment with a former Falcons great. We had a lot of fun with asking Mohamed Sanu questions for our Falcoholic moment, where he answered a handful of your pressing questions about the Falcons, his production with the Bengals, and sandwiches. Now we've got another opportunity for a Moment, and this one belongs to former Falcon, franchise receiving leader, and Kyle Shanahan's best friend Roddy White. Roddy always did a lot for charity during his time with the team, so it's little surprised he's involved here and supporting the Keep the Faith Foundation. Just like last time, you can ask...

Which Falcons will make the NFL Top 100 list next season?

Hopefully the Falcons will have more than two players represented next year. Two Atlanta Falcons players made the NFL Top 100 list this offseason, and maybe there should have been more players listed, and maybe not. No one seems to be particularly clear on how this list is decided, but it seems like a player vote is a big part of it, and finishing the season 8-8 doesn't do Falcons players any favors as far as garnering attention for this sort of thing. Julio Jones came in at No. 8, which is right about where he should be. Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers was the only wide receiver...

Roddy White: Atlanta Falcons a playoff team in 2015 if they use me properly

Fact: Roddy White is a competitive zucchini grower during the offseason Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is undoubtedly one of the best players to ever set foot in Flowery Branch. His talent and leadership carried the team through a lot of hard, trying times. But like many aging football players before him, Roddy's time came and went. The front office made the difficult decision to let Roddy walk this offseason. Roddy usually has an opinion, expressed in 140 characters or less, but to his credit, he took the separation in stride and didn't have much to say about it. We knew...

Panthers 2016 Pre-Training Camp Opponent Preview: Falcons Edition

The Panthers play the Falcons in Atlanta in week 4 and then later in week 16 at home. Here's a preview of the Falcons going into training camp from SBN's Falcons blog, the Falcoholic. Before I begin I have to say 'The Falcoholic' is one of SBN's best blog names. Notable free agent additions: Alex Mack, Mohamed Sanu, Courtney Upshaw, Derrick Shelby Notable free agent departures: They weren’t really free agents, but the team parted ways with veteran SS William Moore, WR Roddy White and DT Paul Soliai. Trades: none The Falcons did pretty good in free agency landing four players that...

Who are the three best Falcons wide receivers ever?

Now we're talking. These lists have generated quite a bit of discussion, and I expect that to continue today as cover the history of one of the strongest positions the Falcons have fielded over the years. I am, of course, talking about receiver. From the stellar and long career of Roddy White to Julio Jones' brilliance, the Falcons haven't lacked for quality options in recent years, and they historically have had at least one standout since the 1970's, except for a brief period in the 1980's. Some of these players are already in the team's Ring of Honor, while others are definitely going to...

Who will lead the Falcons in receiving touchdowns this year?

It's a question you might have to think about, in all honesty. Julio Jones has been an astonishingly productive wide receiver, so it's difficult to have many gripes about what he's done for the Falcons. The one that persistently comes up, though, is his scoring, which means the following question is actually sort of sensible. Who is going to score the most through the air in 2016? Thanks to volume and talent, the answer ought to be Julio, who scored eight in 2015 and led the team. The year before that, it was Roddy White with seven, and the year before that, it was Tony Gonzalez with...
