Falcons fan confidence goes on a journey to the center of the earth after loss to Saints

Falcons fan confidence goes on a journey to the center of the earth after loss to Saints

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ It turns out being humiliated by your longtime rival does not make fans feel good! Who knew? I hope everyone’s been enjoying their Thanksgiving and not thinking about the Falcons too much, but now I’m going to make you think about the Falcons. It’s sort of the deal you make by coming here, I’m afraid. Last week, I suggested a close loss to the Saints would certainly cause fan confidence in the Falcons to drop, but not necessarily to crater. What I wasn’t expecting was perhaps the single most anemic game of the year against New Orleans,...

Falcons defense vs. Raiders offense: who wins this matchup?

Falcons defense vs. Raiders offense: who wins this matchup?

Photo by David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Will anyone step up and help Grady in the trenches? The Raiders offense has scored 30 or more points in 6 of their 10 games this year. Derek Carr is having a fantastic year and Las Vegas will come into town desperate for a win to keep them in the playoff hunt. Does the Atlanta defense have a chance? Let’s take a look. In the trenches When it comes to the defensive line, it’s all about Grady Jarrett. Despite getting nearly no help, he continues to be one of the best interior defensive lineman in the league. Bluntly,...

Falcons vs Raiders preview: Offensive and defensive stats comparison for Week 12

Falcons vs Raiders preview: Offensive and defensive stats comparison for Week 12

After a disastrous divisional loss to the Saints in Week 11, the Falcons (3-7) take on the ascending Raiders (6-4) on Sunday in a must-win situation for their very slim postseason hopes. We take a closer look at how Atlanta and Las Vegas compare on offense and defense. After garnering a ton of goodwill from the fanbase for their 3-1 run under interim head coach Raheem Morris, the Falcons blew it all in spectacular fashion with a thorough shellacking at the hands of the Saints and backup QB Taysom Hill. The offense was a disaster and the defense, despite a solid performance for...

What Thanksgiving dish best represents the Atlanta Falcons?

What Thanksgiving dish best represents the Atlanta Falcons?

You know, there are so many options. Happy Thanksgiving, Falcoholics. Since we’re all in the mood for food today, we thought we’d have a little fun and try to figure out which Thanksgiving dish best represents the Atlanta Falcons. Check out our answers below, and leave your answers in the comments. An overcooked turkey Cooking a turkey properly is an art. You can fry it, you can brine and smoke it, like our own Matt Chambers does, or you can whip up a little compound butter with herbs and roasted garlic and roast it, like I’m doing this year. But the one thing you...

Falcons switch to virtual work Thursday after two staff members test positive for COVID-19

Falcons switch to virtual work Thursday after two staff members test positive for COVID-19

David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Both positive tests are non-coaching staff members of the team. The Falcons have thus far avoided the fate of teams like the unfortunate Steelers, who have had two games moved because their opponents have had outbreaks, and the Titans and Ravens, the opponents in question who have had outbreaks. That doesn’t mean they’ve been immune to the impact of COVID-19, however, as they’ve had multiple positive tests for players and coaches alike. Today, the team announced two staff members who are not on the coaching staff have...

Younghoe Koo’s kicked doubts to the curb in 2020

Younghoe Koo’s kicked doubts to the curb in 2020

Photo by Grant Halverson/ The lingering question coming into the season was whether Koo had the range, and that’s no longer a question. Younghoe Koo had some big cleats to fill. When the Falcons signed the one-time Chargers kicker following the release of Matt Bryant, they were asking the fanbase and the coaching staff to trust a player who had been cut by his old team, spent some time with the Atlanta Legends, and been cut from the Patriots practice squad. This was no small thing given that Bryant took over halfway through the 2009 season and was the team’s...

Atlanta Falcons: Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley won’t help the Raiders

The Atlanta Falcons may see some familiar faces this week.

Atlanta Falcons: Next head coach has to be honest with Matt Ryan

There is enough blame to go around for the Atlanta Falcons. When you have had three straight losing seasons like the Atlanta Falcons, it is easy to blame some but not others.

Falcons vs. Raiders odds: Atlanta tabbed as underdogs in Week 12 matchup

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Raheem Morris’ favorite color is magenta The Falcons have a tough slate of games ahead. If they manage to win 3 of their remaining 6 games, I’ll be impressed. But that seems like a farfetched scenario, given their current trajectory. This weekend the Falcons will face off with the 6-4 Raiders. The Raiders are 3 games behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. At present, there are 6 different teams with 6-4 or 7-3 records in the AFC, which means the playoff picture there is about as murky as it gets. But that said, there’s no denying...
