Report: “Almost every team” called Jaguars about Jalen Ramsey

Photo by James Gilbert/ Should the Falcons be interested in the league’s best center? Nick Foles went down and somehow that won’t be the biggest loss for the Jaguars this season. Jalen Ramsey, believed by almost everyone to be the league’s best cornerback, is reportedly on his way out after getting into an argument with the human embodiment of a parking ticket Doug Marrone. The Jaguars have made a practice of making poor team decisions. Just off the top of my head, they extended Blake Bortles despite overwhelming evidence that was both unnecessary and unwise ($16.5 million in dead...

The Falcoholic staff’s picks for Falcons vs. Colts and the rest of Week 3’s NFL games

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Which Falcons will show up against the Colts? The Falcons pleasantly surprised us in Week 2 against the Eagles after falling flat the previous week in Minnesota. This week the Falcons travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts, and our staff universally is predicting a Falcons win in Week 3. Last week we weren’t so optimistic. Everyone but Cory, DW, Evan, and Kevin went with the Eagles, but the Falcons managed to pull off a close one, winning 24-20. We were all completely wrong about the Panthers, who lost to the Buccaneers as Cam Newton fought through...

3 reasons the Colts will lose to the Falcons on Sunday

3 reasons the Colts will lose to the Falcons on Sunday

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ Don’t take our word for it, not when Stampede Blue is willing to weigh in. All hail Chris Blystone of Stampede Blue, who powered through a power outage to give us three reasons the Colts will lose to the Falcons Sunday. May he be right. Any homer can give you a handful of reasons their team is destined for a win in their upcoming game, right? It is what you’ve come to expect from opposing writers, especially those who are also fans of the team about which they write. I’m not here to give you optimistic musings, I’m here to get real with you. This...

Falcons fans get a boost of confidence after Week 2 win over Eagles

Falcons fans get a boost of confidence after Week 2 win over Eagles

Photo by David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via In the latest FanPulse poll, things go from doom and gloom to just a mild gloom. Like a cloudy day, really. Confidence just flat out evaporated among Falcons fans a week ago. We run our FanPulse survey of hundreds of fans every week during the NFL season, and the percentage of fans who said they were confident in the direction of the team went from 88% before the season opener to 22% heading into Week 2. The general mood of the fanbase matched that despair perfectly. As you’d expect, a win has helped to heal those wounds, if not...

Burning Falcons Questions, Week 3: Can the team be more consistent against the AFC?

Burning Falcons Questions, Week 3: Can the team be more consistent against the AFC?

Photo by Brett Carlsen/ The record under DQ isn’t ideal, though they can improve. The Atlanta Falcons have that elusive first win of the season. Now they can focus their energies on their first AFC opponent of the year, the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have had a bizarre year so far, seeing franchise quarterback Andrew Luck stepping away from the game to tend to his health and having backup QB Jacoby Brissett assume the position. Sunday, they could also be without budding star linebacker Darius Leonard (in the concussion protocol) and starting cornerback Pierre Desir (nursing a...

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports We’ll see how they progress on Thursday and Friday. It’s probably not a surprise following the Falcons’ decision to sign punter Matt Wile on Tuesday, but Matt Bosher was held out of Wednesday’s practice completely. Bosher, who is working through a groin injury, was on the Did Not Participate list alongside running back/return specialist Kenjon Barner and tackle Kaleb McGary. Barner has an ankle injury. McGary suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s win over the Eagles. It looked very bad at the time, but the rookie was somehow able to re-enter the...

Are the Falcons the early favorite to win the NFC South?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports We discuss this and more on our latest podcast. The normal podcast is back this week to talk about the incredibly turbulent first two weeks for the NFC South. Jeanna and I are joined by Brian Beversluis of Cat Scratch Reader to talk about the division after just two games into the 2019 NFL season.

The piercing duality of the Falcons’ latest victory

The piercing duality of the Falcons’ latest victory

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ The team fought back after blowing another lead. Is that a good thing? I really thought it was going to happen again. I really, truly thought they were going to Falcon again. In the waning minutes of the Atlanta Falcons’ latest tilt against the new rival Philadelphia Eagles, Carson Wentz was fresh off being sacked on third down with seconds ticking and faced a fourth-and-long with a zone-heavy Falcons backfield. You rarely make this play if you’re the offense. It’s almost the cruel qualifier, a lame duck opportunity to throw caution to the wind and pray...

What to know about the Falcons - Colts matchup in Week 3

Photo by Todd Kirkland/Icon Sportswire/Corbis/Icon Sportswire via The Eagles and Vikings were tougher matchups on paper, but this road contest ought to still test the Falcons’ mettle just fine. The Falcons are headed to Week 3 with a 1-1 record, which they earned through one gutsy, thrilling win and one utter catastrophe of a loss. Getting the full measure of this football team will probably take a little more time, but we’ll get more insight out of the team’s upcoming performance against the equally 1-1 Colts. Despite their record and some injuries—Darius Leonard is in the...

Falcons vs. Colts odds: Atlanta once again the underdogs in Week 3 matchup in Indianapolis

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Fact: Grady Jarrett’s mustache regularly trims itself The Falcons will take on the Colts in Indianapolis this Sunday. The match up will feature two 1-1 teams looking to maintain some momentum during the first month of the season. It’s not a must-win game for either team, but it’s certainly a winnable game for head coach Dan Quinn’s squad. Looking ahead, this isn’t a matchup you dislike on paper. The Falcons are loaded with talent, and the Colts are being quarterbacked by Jacoby Brissett. As a Falcons fan, you’d like to think this is one of the more...

What Colts position group would you add to the Falcons?

What Colts position group would you add to the Falcons?

Photo by Focus on Sport/ Not pictured: Current Colts or Falcons. In weeks past, we’ve asked you to take a position group from the week’s opponent, and your choices haven’t exactly been shocking. I myself went with the Vikings defensive ends and Eagles tackles these past two weeks, reasoning those were the most elite position groups on those respective teams that matched up well with existing Falcons weaknesses. A funny thing happened this week, though: The trenches came to seem like a bit less of a need. The Falcons’ offensive line largely held up, at least in pass protection,...

Given that the Falcons are now on top (three-way tie!) of the highly competitive NFC South, we all needed some time to brag, boast, and get over our hangovers. In short, yesterday was our last day to hype and discuss the much-needed victory over the Eagles. Now we’ll move on to bigger and better things (i.e., our impending demolition of what’s left of the Colts organization). Links for me, links...

Falcons vs. Eagles: Hat Tips & Head-Scratchers

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The good and the bad from the win over the Eagles. That was one ugly football game, but it’s also the type of game that the Atlanta Falcons traditionally find a way to lose. They showed heart and grit and grinded out a well-deserved win against the Philadelphia Eagles — and while it wasn’t necessarily pretty, there were many moments that deserve a tip of the cap. Hat Tips Desmond Trufant’s two picks Falcons corner Desmond Trufant dropped a number of tailor-made interceptions in 2018, and it seems he came into this game against the Eagles determined to...
