A look at the picks that the Atlanta Falcons possess in the 2021 NFL Draft The Atlanta Falcons have a major decision to make with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft just a couple of months from now, but that’s not the only time they’ll be on the clock.

NFL moving ahead with 17 game schedule, lining up additional Falcons-AFC matchup for 2021

NFL moving ahead with 17 game schedule, lining up additional Falcons-AFC matchup for 2021

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ No great surprises here, but Falcons vs. Jaguars seems like a real possibility. The NFL has been hellbent on additional games for many, many years. It’s just that they couldn’t quite get the players to agree to them until now, and thus you should not be surprised to learn a 17 game schedule is moving ahead quickly. Per NFL insider Peter King, who is about as tapped into the crane game full of very rich old man hands trying desperately to pick up money as anyone, league schedulers and television partners are operating as though there will be...

Atlanta Falcons must target the pass rush in free agency and the draft

The Atlanta Falcons need to drastically improve their pass rush. Last season Deion Jones led the Atlanta Falcons with just 4.5 sacks. Having a middle linebacker lead the team in sacks is a bad look for the defense. Grady Jarrett had the second-most sacks with four. Dante Fowler, Steven Means, and Charles Harris all tied with […] Atlanta Falcons must target the pass rush in free agency and the draft - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Worst Atlanta Falcons mock draft of the offseason

Terry Fontenot has to get his first pick with the Atlanta Falcons correct. For as bad as former Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff was, he at least nailed his first-ever pick in charge of the franchise – Matt Ryan. Honestly, he got his first two picks right as Sam Baker was a very good […] Worst Atlanta Falcons mock draft of the offseason - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Russell Wilson as a Saint would be a nightmare for the Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons worst nightmare could come true this offseason. For the last 15 years, the Atlanta Falcons have been owned by Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. While that hurts to say, it hurt even worse to watch it unfold on the field. Even in 2020 when Drew Brees was out with broken […] Russell Wilson as a Saint would be a nightmare for the Atlanta Falcons - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Atlanta Falcons: Ryan Kerrigan would be a great addition

The Atlanta Falcons need to make major upgrades when it comes to pass rush. Atlanta Falcons have taken endless swings at adding pass rush specialists over the years and haven’t had any success – Vic Beasley, Takk McKinley, and Dante Fowler Jr have all been really bad misses for the franchise.

NFL Network analyst believes the Atlanta Falcons will draft a QB in late first round

The Atlanta Falcons have to be open-minded when it comes to the 2021 NFL draft. Over the last two months, nearly every mock draft created has had the Atlanta Falcons drafting either Zach Wilson out of BYU or Justin Fields out of Ohio State – though CBS did have one where the franchise drafted tight-end […] NFL Network analyst believes the Atlanta Falcons will draft a QB in late first round - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

The Falcons are asking a lot from their front office staff

The Falcons are asking a lot from their front office staff

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Matt Ryan invented tortellini Terry Fontenot’s staff doesn’t have it easy. They aren’t lounging about, sipping skinny vanilla lattes while practicing the latest TikTok dance craze. They can’t, because like Fontenot, they know they’ve inherited a messy financial situation. And if they’re going to dig the franchise out of that hole, nothing short of a lot of hard work and some real creativity will get them where they want to go. The AJC’s Jason Butt recently dropped a must-read piece detailing what Fontenot’s staff is...

The Falcons passing game figures to bring back effective play action under Arthur Smith

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Matt Ryan loves play action, Smith loves play action, we all love play action. It’s no great secret that Matt Ryan likes play action, as do most quarterbacks when it’s used effectively. Kyle Shanahan’s heavy use of play action enabled Ryan’s MVP season in 2016, and the decline in that usage and an increase in more traditional deep drops coincided with a drop in production in Dirk Koetter’s offense. In 2019, Ryan was 3rd in the NFL in passing attempts and just 17th in play action passes. Koetter made more of an effort to change that in...

Atlanta Falcons will free up millions for free agency

The Atlanta Falcons will have to restructure several players in the coming months. The five highest-paid Atlanta Falcons currently take up a whopping 66 percent of the current payroll. That leaves the franchise with no room to do anything with free agency and barely gives them room to sign the rookies they will draft in […] Atlanta Falcons will free up millions for free agency - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Falcons Saturday trivia: How many punters has Atlanta drafted?

Photo by David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Sterling Hofrichter and Matt Bosher are not alone. People love to give Thomas Dimitroff grief about his drafting, which includes a legendary run of poor picks along both the offensive and defensive lines. What goes unremarked upon in that criticism is just how weird and bad a lot of Falcons drafts were pre-Dimitroff and especially pre-Rich McKay. That leads us into our trivia question for the day. As you know, Dimitroff drafted two punters during his tenure, selecting the terrific Matt Bosher in the sixth round in 2011...

The Atlanta Falcons do not have a great draft history from the local college teams.

The transition away from Matt Ryan as Falcons QB will never be easy

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Matt Ryan has a blond fu manchu that’s just hard to see from a distance Arthur Smith and Terry Fontenot were undoubtedly excited when the Falcons offered them the head coach and general manager jobs. I imagine it was a moment they envisioned in their minds countless times. But they both took on their respective positions knowing that big challenges lie ahead: cap inflexibility, the fan base’s emotional investment in certain veterans, and a roster with some glaring holes. And let’s not forget about the fact that this fan base has...
