Andre Rison, John Abraham among 122 Modern-Era Nominees Announced for Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022

Jay Drowns/Sporting News via via A few former Falcons are one step closer to Canton. For those that overcome the odds and make it to the NFL, there’s typically two goals: win a Super Bowl and make the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Although it’s rare to get both, especially in Atlanta, it’s a dream worth chasing. On Wednesday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame revealed a list of 122 modern-era nominees for the class of 2022. Of those names, a good number of former Atlanta Falcons players have been nominated and are now one step closer to joining the prestigious club of...

How the Atlanta Falcons can quickly fix their offensive line

There is no getting around the fact that much of the reason the Atlanta Falcons are winless is due to their poor offensive line play. They do not have the luxury of passing the ball on straight dropbacks because the line cannot hold up for two seconds. The three culprits of the disaster up front […] How the Atlanta Falcons can quickly fix their offensive line - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Falcons injury report: A.J. Terrell, Russell Gage absent from Wednesday’s practice

Kevin C. Cox/ The Falcons health report for Wednesday, Sept. 22 It’s a new week, as we yet again turn the page on an Atlanta Falcons’ loss. This time however, the team is dealing with new injuries as they prepare for an NFC matchup with the New York Giants. Wide receiver Russell Gage and corner A.J.

Falcons defense vs. Giants offense: Can Atlanta pressure Daniel Jones on Sunday?

Falcons defense vs. Giants offense: Can Atlanta pressure Daniel Jones on Sunday?

Photo by Rob Carr/ Can Dean Pees and the defense take advantage of a struggling offensive line? The Falcons desperately need a win after starting yet another season 0-2. They’ve faced a rookie QB who can create outside the pocket and the greatest to have ever played the position. They’ll face something a bit different in third year QB Daniel Jones when they travel to New York to face the Giants. How do they stack up? Let’s take a look. In the trenches This may be one of the few times where the Falcons could match up with the opposing offensive line. This Giants...

What to know about Falcons - Giants before Sunday’s Week 3 matchup

Photo by Ric Tapia/Icon Sportswire via Two 0-2 teams will duke it out Sunday, and if the Falcons want to get back on track, they have to be able to handle the Giants. The Falcons unexpectedly were destroyed by the Eagles and then beaten by the defending Super Bowl champions. Now 0-2, they’re on to the easiest game on the schedule thus far, which based on what we’ve seen to this point should not mean that you get too comfortable. Still, if last Sunday’s improvement against the Buccaneers meant anything at all, the Falcons should be able to hang out with the...

Russell Gage reportedly “week-to-week,” may be out Sunday against Giants

Russell Gage reportedly “week-to-week,” may be out Sunday against Giants

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ The veteran receiver gutted it out against the Buccaneers, but the Falcons may need to turn elsewhere Sunday. This has not been a banner year for the offense through two games, with nobody outside of Cordarrelle Patterson operating at the height of their powers. That includes Russell Gage, who has just 5 receptions for 28 yards on the year so far and is now injured. Gage was hurt against Tampa Bay and, to his credit, gutted out most of the game. He did not look 100% in that effort and it was fair to wonder whether he’d be good to go next...

Despite tough loss, Falcons can build on Sunday’s performance

Despite tough loss, Falcons can build on Sunday’s performance

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Look, it wasn’t pretty, but it was something. There’s an eternal debate that goes on in sports about the validity of a moral victory. To some, a moral victory is tangible and worth celebrating, akin to puking on a roller coaster but still having a nice day at the amusement park. To some, a moral victory is worthless, empty fodder that doesn’t mean anything, akin to puking on a roller coaster and it setting off a chain of events that gets you banned from the park for life. Either way, you still puked on a roller coaster, but it’s...

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan deserves better in year fourteen

What is the defining moment of the Falcons - Giants rivalry?

Photo by Focus on Sport/ Unlike last week, where we remembered some good times against the Buccaneers, this is an unhappy sort of moment and memory. It’s Wednesday morning, so it’s time to pour a cup of coffee taller and deeper than the laws of physics allow and talk defining moments again. This week brings the Giants to town. For one of the league’s marquee franchises, the Giants are an easy team to forget about if you’re a Falcons fans, given that they’ve mostly stunk for years now and have done so in an NFC East where the Cowboys and Eagles have caused us...

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Sept. 22

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports LIIINKS It’s a Wednesday, which means we have links (like every Wednesday). Is it the end? Over the past 30 years, only about 12% of the teams who started their seasons 0-2 made the playoffs. The Falcons? Yep, 0-2. Even with an expanded playoff format last year, there was not one 0-2 team in the mix. So that begs the question: Is an 0-2 start a death knell for the Atlanta Falcons, even with an additional game on the schedule? What we learned Five things, exactly. The Falcons showed they are completely capable of putting together...

Falcons work out speedy veteran WR John Brown

Falcons work out speedy veteran WR John Brown

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The vertical threat would be a great in-season addition if signed. Judging by Sunday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Falcons could use a little help within their receiving corps. While top receiver Calvin Ridley and 2021 first-round draft pick Kyle Pitts are top of the line options, the team doesn’t have a ton of reliability behind those guys outside of Russell Gage, who might be a bit hobbled going forward with an ankle injury. For that reason and potentially many more, the Falcons worked out veteran receiver John...

Atlanta Falcons bring in two-time 1,000 yard WR for workout

A position that has been overlooked for the Atlanta Falcons has been wide receiver. So far this year the Falcons receivers have not made the type of impact that we expected them to.
