Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 2

Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 2

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Calvin Ridley has showed out twice in two weeks I honestly don’t know what to say anymore. Every single week you have to go into a Falcons game expecting a letdown, but this week they managed to reach a low that I wasn’t even expecting. Expect the worse, but then what happens when they do even worse than that? The Falcons blew a 29-10 halftime lead in a game that made them the laughingstock of the NFL. There’s a lesson to be learned here — when Dan Quinn is your football team’s head coach no lead you have will ever be safe. The Falcons lost a...

Falcons vs Cowboys: Who was the offensive player of the game?

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Thankfully, several names stood out for the better. The Falcons went to 0-2 for the first time in the Matt Ryan era. Yet, the offense put up 39 points and it’s hard to fault them for what transpired on Sunday. An offense that is bale to put up that many points should...

Adversity dooms Dan Quinn’s Falcons again

Adversity dooms Dan Quinn’s Falcons again

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports It’s just who they are. It’s just who they are. That’s what is running through my mind as, like clockwork, the Atlanta Falcons are back in the headlines for a classic bit of highly visible losing. It’s the disastrous banana peel slip into the horrible history books this team has somehow become famous for in the last decade. I don’t even want to list the examples; I don’t want to relive the wasted afternoons and evenings. Since the days in 2008 when Thomas Dimitroff and Matt Ryan got here, the Falcons have held leads like newly broken mugs...

Atlanta Falcons loss to Cowboys was worse than Super Bowl 51

The Dallas Cowboys provided another stunning loss for the Atlanta Falcons. Anger and frustration consumed the Atlanta Falcons fan base for hours after the final whistle blew Sunday in Dallas. Seemingly under the leadership of Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff, this franchise keeps finding new ways to lose football games.

Dak Prescott tied Tony Romo for most 400-yard passing games in Cowboys history, in roughly half the games

Dak Prescott tied Tony Romo for most 400-yard passing games in Cowboys history, in roughly half the games

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Dak Prescott can get it done through the air. Just like he was in 2019, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is in a contract year in 2020. Two games in, especially in the immediate aftermath of the first win, he continues to look rather wise for betting on himself. Prescott made NFL history with his performance against the Atlanta Falcons. He is the only player to ever throw for over 400 yards and rush for three touchdowns in the same game. That is a bit specific of a statistic, but it belongs to Dak and Dak alone, and that is pretty cool. While he made NFL...

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

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports This will be a short, short list. The Falcons suck. Hard. Really hard. Like, reinforced steel and concrete hard. Yet, here we are. Looking at which players on the defense did not suck, which is an admittedly short list when you give up 40 points in a game and 39 on average over two games. Please vote. Foye Oluokun Truthfully, this guy was insane in the first half. He caused several fumbles early on and apparently had the magic touch for forcing them. He was a shining light in what would ultimately be a dark, dark night. It’s unfortunate that he left the...

Stephen A. Smith: “Falcons might be the dumbest team that I have witnessed in the modern era”

Stephen A. Smith: “Falcons might be the dumbest team that I have witnessed in the modern era”

Photo by Robin Marchant/ for ESPN Smith and other national sports personalities are taking a baseball bat to the Falcons on television right now. Earlier this week, the Falcons shipped ESPN personality and beloved sports yeller Stephen A. Smith a jersey, part of a rollout that saw the team share their new apparel with a variety of celebrities. That rollout earned more than a little grumbling from fans who have been waiting for their jerseys for a long time and many continue to do so for weeks or even months. The gesture also did not save them from Smith’s wrath on Monday, when he...

Kaleb McGary has minor MCL sprain, may only be out a short time

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via The Falcons are still waiting for updates on other injured Falcons. When Kaleb McGary left Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, it was easy to fear the worst based on how bad the injury looked. Happily, it appears to be relatively minor. Per Ian Rapoport, McGary’s Monday MRI revealed a minor MCL sprain that will likely only keep the second-year tackle out for a little while. If all goes well, he could be back as early as Week 4. Some good news for #Falcons OL Kaleb McGary. Source said his MCL sprain is pretty minor and he may just miss a...

Where do the Falcons go from here?

Where do the Falcons go from here?

Photo by Tom Pennington/ There are three potential paths ahead for the franchise in 2020, but nothing save a lot of wins is going to stave off the seemingly inevitable end of the Dan Quinn era. Most Falcons losses are easier to digest the next day. Everyone’s mileage is different with this football team, but I tend to ride the roller coaster during the game and its immediate aftermath, and find it much easier to be somewhat rational about it in the days ahead. The cold light of day hasn’t done much for me this morning, though. All of us except the most relentlessly positive Falcons...

Being a Falcons fan is damn hard

Photo by Steve Christo/Corbis via I am both desensitized to and struggling with the constant failure that we have all grown so accustomed to. It happened again. The Falcons found yet another miraculous way to lose. Yet, I can’t get too mad about it. Football was fun for a little bit today. Not too fun, as every Falcons fan knows this team can and will find a way to fail even when things are looking so good. Failure is always lurking around some corner. Not just any failure. Epic failure. The sort of failure you only rarely see in the NFL. I’m not the only one who feels like that....

Falcons - Cowboys recap: Atlanta outdoes themselves in last second loss to Dallas

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Even a franchise with a rich history of losing in terrible and awe-inspiring ways can’t skate by this one. Being a Falcons fan is about deciding how much hope you’ll have in a given season, and how quickly you’ll allow the Falcons to drain that hope out of you. We have more than one Falcoholic writer weighing on fandom and the state of this team team today, but we have decades of evidence that those who have been the most cynical all these years have made the best choices, Atlanta’s loss on Sunday was not the most consequential of the Dan Quinn era, or...

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Sept. 21

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports What a disaster. I had so much positive stuff written here. I can’t. Here’s Falcoholinks. Falcons - Cowboys recap The Atlanta Falcons rolled into Dallas and took no prisoners for one half. And then they forgot what football was, or what a football even is, or that you’re supposed to jump on it when it’s rolling by your feet and the game is on the line. This team is either cursed or cursed with terrible coaching. I’m inclined to think it’s the latter. Regardless, at this point, the only way to rectify this situation is to nuke this regime...

Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire via Fact: Kaleb McGary has never used a spork Well, that was embarrassing. There aren’t really words to fairly describe or reliable methods to accurately quantify the frustration this team generates. It’s inexplicable, and it’s tired. At this point, Dan Quinn should be relieved of his duties such that a wholesale reset of the coaching staff and front office can get underway as soon as possible. But that won’t happen, because Arthur Blank will hold out hope of a miraculous turnaround and we’ll be forced to endure more of this maddening...
