Where does Marcus Mariota rank among NFC South Quarterbacks?

The Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Bucs all dealt with huge quarterback issues this off-season.  Three teams from the NFC South were in on Deshaun Watson before the Saints settled for Jameis Winston and the Panthers for Sam Darnold.

Falcons offseason roundtable: Defensive edition

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports The quiet period of the offseason continues as training camp starts in a month. It’s time to have a long discussion about the Falcons’ slowly improving defense. As what has become a yearly tradition for the Falcons, the defense enters the season with several unknowns. There are positional question marks on all three levels of the defense. Outside of the cornerback position, it’s hard to declare any other position as a legitimate strength. There are also some concerns on whether the modern game has passed Dean Pees by, which will come...

Did the Atlanta Falcons make the right decision extending Jake Matthews?

Two of the biggest decisions of the Atlanta Falcons’ off-season were the extensions handed to Grady Jarrett and Jake Matthews. Two players who have been part of the Atlanta Falcons core over the last five years. Jarrett is a stalwart in the Atlanta defense and is a player to build the defensive line around.

There is one reason the Falcons will not have the worst defense

You won’t have to search around the internet for very long to find projected defensive rankings in 2022 that have the Atlanta Falcons dead last.

Who will lead the Falcons in sacks this season?

Who will lead the Falcons in sacks this season?

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Will it be a new addition, or will Grady Jarrett have a dominant year on a better defense? The Falcons pass rush has been a punchline forever, and with good reason. With the exception of a handful of solid years, Atlanta has largely impacted the quarterback as frequently as I have from the comfort of my home on Sundays, which is to say not very much at all. The team hit what we all hope is rock bottom in 2021, putting up a measly 18 sacks. That was 11 whole sacks less than the Eagles, who had the second-fewest in the NFL, and only one...

Should the Atlanta Falcons have interest in Baker Mayfield?

The Atlanta Falcons appear to be content heading into the season with Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder as their options at the quarterback position.

Majority of Falcons fans excited for the return of the red helmets

We surveyed Falcons fans about the red helmets, and they’re pretty excited. In 2021, the NFL announced that teams would be allowed to add a second helmet shell and design to their uniform lineups starting in 2022. With that bit of news, there was rampant speculation that the Atlanta Falcons might be bringing back the red helmets they wore throughout the 1960, 1970s, and 1980s. To my excitement, and to others’ as well, the team announced on June 1 that the team would be bringing back the classic red helmets for an Oct. 16 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers. This bit of...

Are the Atlanta Falcons a fit for Odell Beckham?
