Get your Falcons gear and, yes, Falcoholic shirts here. We’re all Falcoholics. We’re used to letdowns, nail biters, all-too-fleeting moments of triumph, and being underdogs at every turn. We’ve seen huge wins, crushing losses, and a defensive lineman named Kroy Biermann kicking field goals in an NFL game. We’ve watched Julio Jones, Michael Vick, and Deion Sanders flying down the field, and we’ve also seen the 2013 offensive line in action. It’s not always pleasant to ride this particular roller coaster, but it’s what makes this fanbase special, and we may as well look good...

Falcons - Panthers reactions from The Falcoholic staff

Falcons - Panthers reactions from The Falcoholic staff

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/ The Falcons have won two in a row, and they stomped the Panthers into jelly on their own field this time. That was quite nice. The Falcons are 3-7 by virtue of two straight wins. Hardly an inspiring record, but the game itself was worth feeling good about. So how are we feeling Well I’ll Be Sitting at 2-7 entering Sunday’s contest, the Falcons are likely playing for pride more than anything else. Not sure what message has been delivered to this team during the bye week, but it has worked. I’m not sure what was more impressive during Atlanta’s 29-3 win...

Podcast: Are the Falcons legit after walloping the Saints and Panthers?

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Is this latest game a sign of a continued turnaround? Is this Falcons team legit? Many fans are wondering that after a 1-7 start looks distant compared to the two straight dominant performances against the Saints and Panthers. We discuss this on our latest postgame podcast as we recap what happened in Carolina and briefly discuss some of the trends that may point to a real turn-around for this Falcons team. Topics include: Matt Ryan having one of his best games of the year, even with pressure in his face The running game with Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison...

The Falcons resurgence is a double-edged sword

The Falcons resurgence is a double-edged sword

Photo by Grant Halverson/ After starting the season a putrid 1-7, the Falcons have dominated their two biggest division rivals in back-to-back weeks. Atlanta’s late-season resurgence is as entertaining as it is frustrating. Heading into the bye, in Week 9, you would’ve been forgiven if you expected the ceiling of this Falcons team to be 3-13—or worse. Atlanta was playing miserable football and was in the midst of a 6-game losing streak. They had, at one point, gone over a month without a sack. The Falcons had only managed 4 turnovers on defense, and were giving up over 31 points...

What are the Falcons playoff chances after the Panthers game?

What are the Falcons playoff chances after the Panthers game?

Streeter Lecka/ SPOILER: Not good After starting the season with a horrendous 1-7 record, the Atlanta Falcons have found themselves winning two straight games. Both games came against arguably their toughest matchups thus far, traveling to the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers. This discussion is one that I didn’t consider us having a few weeks ago, and even still, you should limit your excitement because the odds aren’t good. It’s still a discussion worth having because of their recent dominant victories and because the Falcons aren’t mathematically eliminated from the...

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Tuesday, Nov. 19

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Damontae Kazee has a pet rabbit named “Nibbles” This is not what most Falcons fans envisioned in mid-July. If anything, we expected to be 7-3 with solid playoff seeding. But that’s not how the season played out, and unless you low key invented a time machine, it is what it is. That, of course, doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to. In fact, if we keep dominating divisional opponents like this, we’ll be able to stockpile smack talk for years to come. Public service announcement: links should be refrigerated, if not eaten. You’ve...

Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 11

Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 11

Photo by Grant Halverson/ A first time stud and first dud this season. Something seems to have gotten into the Falcons following the bye week. After blowing out the Saints in New Orleans last week, they absolutely annihilated the Panthers in Charlotte for an encore. The Falcons have moved to 3-7, and while a playoff run is still incredibly improbable, they certainly don’t look like a team you want to face right now. The fantasy pickings were plentiful this week, even with starters Devonta Freeman and Austin Hooper inactive. There is a lot of great content available here at the...

Falcons vs Panthers: Who was the defensive player of the game?

Falcons vs Panthers: Who was the defensive player of the game?

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports Don’t look now, but this defense has been very, very good. The Falcons defense started with 7 sacks in 8 games. Over the past 2 games, they have racked up 11 sacks and 4 interceptions. This is one of the most impressive turnarounds in recent memory and is a big reason Atlanta has won two in a row. There are only four names in our poll, but numerous guys showed up on Sunday. Adrian Clayborn Out of the 5 sacks on the day, Clayborn was responsible for 2 of them. He was the leader of a unit that was abusing the Panthers offensive line all afternoon,...

Falcons vs. Panthers: Who was the offensive player of the game?

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports After thrashing Carolina on the road, there are some great choices today. Don’t look now, but the Falcons have won two in a row with both games being in the NFC South and on the road. The offense hasn’t been incredible, but after scoring 25 or more points for the second week in a row, they have improved. Thankfully, they didn’t even need all those points this week. Here are some of the offensive players who stood out the most. Matt Ryan The franchise QB was accurate all game long. He finished 21 of 31 for 311 yards and 1 touchdown, but those stats...

Falcons vs. Panthers: 3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down after second win in two weeks

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Ricardo Allen toes get very cold when he sleeps The Falcons went into yesterday’s game a 2-7 team. By the end of the game, the Falcons were 3-7 and on paper, that doesn’t mean much. (They still aren’t going to the playoffs and 2019 is still a lost season.) But in practice, and in real time, it meant a lot. The Falcons appear revitalized after a much-needed bye week. Notwithstanding their plummeting draft position, the fan base is hyped, because the Falcons are winning football games. It’s a good feeling. Let’s take a look at some of the best...

Dominant defensive display keeps the Falcons astonishing midseason resurgence going

Dominant defensive display keeps the Falcons astonishing midseason resurgence going

Photo by Grant Halverson/ A defense most known for being a weekly punchline is now shutting down opposing offenses entirely. There are countless statistics that showcase how incredible the Falcons have played over the past eight quarters. You can start with how they’ve produced double the amount of interceptions against the Panthers (four) as they did in the first nine games of the season (two). It goes on with their defense recording more sacks in the last two games combined (eleven) than they did in the first eight games of the season (seven). How about not allowing a touchdown in...

Falcons - Panthers recap: The wheels keep on turning, and they grind Carolina to dust

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/ The Falcons are suddenly, improbably on fire, and they’ve won two in a row. The Falcons may as well have spun themselves a chrysalis and emerged as a glorious butterfly, because this has been nothing short of a miraculous transformation. They’re now 2-0 in their last two games, having outscored their opponents 55-12 and putting the rest of their division on notice that they’re not just going to sink quietly into the basement and stay there. As they were busily beating Carolina all over the field, you couldn’t help but simultaneously marvel and get...
