Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and the uncomfortable question

Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and the uncomfortable question

Did the Falcons pay the wrong running back? The Atlanta Falcons have a dilemma on their hands. Starting running back Devonta Freeman is currently nursing a knee injury and will be out for an undisclosed amount of time. Second-string RB Tevin Coleman has stepped in and has kept the offense moving, much like he has every time Freeman has been limited or unavailable in the past two years. Both Freeman and Coleman are excellent running backs who would start on most teams. Both are Falcons draftees, in consecutive years. They’ve complemented each other well and have contributed to making...

Battle of Saints, Falcons backfields might be down to just Alvin Kamara and Tevin Coleman this week

The New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons boast arguably the top two running-back tandems in the NFL.

1. Run Coleman run. With the play of Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith, the Falcons don’t have to rush running back Devonta Freeman back from his knee contusion.

Falcons snap counts for the win against the Panthers

Falcons snap counts for the win against the Panthers

What did we learn from the numbers? This week’s snap counts don’t reveal any deep, earth-shaking insights into how the Falcons performed or their future plans for players, but there are still some key takeaways to share. Let’s get to it. Offense Jake Matthews: 63 Alex Mack: 63 Brandon Fusco: 63 Ryan Schraeder: 63 Matt Ryan: 62 Austin Hooper: 53 Wes Schweitzer: 51 Mohamed Sanu: 48 Julio Jones: 48 Tevin Coleman: 41 Calvin Ridley: 35 Logan Paulsen: 29 Ito Smith: 18 Justin Hardy: 14 Ricky Ortiz: 12 Andy Levitre: 12 Marvin Hall: 9 Eric Saubert: 8 Matt Schaub: 1 The big note here is that...

3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in Week 2 win over Panthers

3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in Week 2 win over Panthers

Ah, that’s more like it. The Atlanta Falcons entered the win column Sunday with a 31-24 divisional victory over the Carolina Panthers. Who’s up and who’s down in the win? Up Matt Ryan After struggling last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, Ryan returned to form versus the Panthers. He was absolutely surgical, completing 23 of 28 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns while also accounting for two (!) rushing touchdowns, including a leaping eight-yard score. Tevin Coleman The Panthers hadn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher in 21 games — until Coleman happened. With Devonta Freeman...

Monday Morning Optimist: Panthers’ defense picked a bad day to have a bad day.

Monday Morning Optimist: Panthers’ defense picked a bad day to have a bad day.

False starts are the beginning, not the end, of Carolina’s season The Panthers defense yesterday was as much the story of their loss to the Falcons as it was the story of their victory over the Cowboys a week ago. Tevin Coleman became the first back in 22 games to rush for over 100 yards against Carolina. Matt Ryan did his best Cam Newton impression to the tune of 2 touchdowns. Luke Kuechly missed a tackle that allowed Tevin Coleman to rush for 27 yards down the Panthers’ sideline, y’all. That isn’t going to happen every day. The optimistic takeaway from yesterday isn’t that the...

Falcons-Panthers rapid reactions: The offense is back and the defense will shuffle

Falcons-Panthers rapid reactions: The offense is back and the defense will shuffle

Minutes after the game, here’s what we saw. It wasn’t even a full hour ago that we saw the Falcons beat the Panthers 31-24, but games this close and this interesting warrant some additional quick analysis, before we’ve had time to settle and let attitudes congeal. Here are some of our all over the place reactions to the Falcons-Panthers game in Week 2. The offense looked great Carolina’s defense is no slouch, but the Falcons hung 31 points on them and ran for well over 100 yards, with Tevin Coleman alone piling up that total. Ito Smith looked tremendous, Calvin Ridley took off, and...

Devonta Freeman misses practice Friday, leaving his Sunday status in doubt

Devonta Freeman misses practice Friday, leaving his Sunday status in doubt

It looks like it might be the Tevin Coleman show against the Panthers. Devonta Freeman has had a rough run of health over the last calendar year. In that time, he’s suffered multiple concussions, hurt his MCL/PCL, and is still dealing with injuries now. It might mean he doesn’t suit up against the Panthers on Sunday. Free has now missed all three days of practice this week, and the Falcons sent signals that he might miss this Sunday’s game when they brought Brian Hill up from the practice squad. At this point, though the team hasn’t said anything officially, I’d have to think...

Falcons must trade Devonta Freeman, resign Tevin Coleman

The common belief is that the Falcons will let Tevin Coleman walk in free agency. However, after the 2018 season, the Atlanta Falcons should trade Devonta Freeman and resign Tevin Coleman. At the end of the season, the Falcons will have a decision to make at the running back position. They’ve done a great job […] Falcons must trade Devonta Freeman, resign Tevin Coleman - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - An Atlanta Falcons Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Falcons snap counts: The case of the disappearing weapons against the Eagles

It’s not all about the plays. Snap counts sometimes illuminate and sometimes just frustrate, but they’re always worth looking at. Here’s a closer look at the snap counts from that first, frustrating game of the season. Offense Matt Ryan: 70 Jake Matthews: 70 Andy Levitre: 70 Alex Mack: 70 Brandon Fusco: 70 Ryan Schraeder: 70 Austin Hooper: 59 Julio Jones: 57 Mohamed Sanu: 56 Devonta Freeman: 39 Tevin Coleman: 36 Logan Paulsen: 19 Eric Saubert: 13 Ricky Ortiz: 10 Marvin Hall: 8 Justin Hardy: 6 Russell Gage: 1 I have all the faith in the world in Calvin Ridley, who I think will...

Falcons snap counts and notes for the Jaguars game

Battles raged, despite the lousy game. The Falcons didn’t play very well against the Jaguars, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at the snap counts and try to glean a few lessons.

Where the Atlanta Falcons stand heading into Week 3 of preseason

Where the Atlanta Falcons stand heading into Week 3 of preseason

The Falcons won’t have their starters out for a whole half, but they’re going to get run against the Jaguars. We’re on to the critical third preseason game, though it will likely be a little less exciting this year than it has been in years past. That’s because the Falcons will wind up sitting many players this week, either for injury or just to keep them safe and rested, which will in turn decrease the quality of the product on the field. That’s okay, though, because we’re still going to get some Matt Ryan, Tevin Coleman, Grady Jarrett and the rest of the gang action, and...
