Falcons’ Arthur Blank, Matt Ryan generously support Atlanta coronavirus relief, and you can help, too

Michael Reaves/ It starts with social distancing and self-isolation to flatten the curve, but there’s more you can do to support our local community. The past couple of weeks have been an unprecedented shift in American life. We’ve all had to make big changes to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. There’s a lot of fear around the virus itself, and that’s understandable. Current data suggests it’s significantly more contagious and deadly than the flu. Immunocompromised people (like me) and the elderly are at greatest risk of complications from the virus, but anyone...

Falcoholic mailbag: Answering your Falcons offseason questions

Falcoholic mailbag: Answering your Falcons offseason questions

It’s been a weird week in sports. It’s been a weird week in sports to say the least. As the dust settles, we’re here to answer your Falcons questions in this week’s mailbag. There weren’t a ton of questions this week, likely due to the never-ending onslaught of news this week. The United States is in the middle of battling COVID-19, a global pandemic. The NBA and NHL have suspended their seasons. The NCAA canceled the men’s and women’s tournaments. Other major sporting events, Broadway shows, and concerts have been canceled in an effort to slow down the rate at which the...

The Falcoholic Sunday afternoon open thread, 3/8 edition

Talk about what you want to talk about, because we’re just over a week away from things heating up. Free agency gets rolling next week, so we’re on the cusp of having more interesting things to discuss on Sunday afternoons. But until then, all we can do is speculate about how the 2020 Falcons will shape up this offseason. As you know, the Falcons don’t have a ton of cap space to work with. Clubs are currently operating under the Top 51 rule, so everyone outside of the top 51 salaries on the roster does not currently count against the salary cap. The Falcons have just over $4 million...

The Falcoholic Mailbag: Answering your offseason questions about the Falcons

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via We’re in a very quiet time of the NFL calendar. The good news is that it frees me up to answer some of your burning questions about the Falcons and what we can expect for the rest of the offseason. Let’s dive right in, and thanks to everyone who submitted questions this week. Requisite: why?— Probably Josh (@ytilanigiroon) March 5, 2020 This is kinda vague, as is the account name. Well, Probably Josh, I don’t know. Is there asteroid they were talking about on its way already— Mike Foster (@MagpieMike_ATL) March 5,...

NFL Combine open thread: On-field workouts wrap up with DBs on Sunday

NFL Combine open thread: On-field workouts wrap up with DBs on Sunday

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via Our staff is pretty excited about Kyle Dugger, so keep an eye on him. It’s the last day of on-field workouts at the NFL Combine. On Sunday, the defensive backs get their chance to shine. Kyle Duggar is the name my colleagues here at The Falcoholic keep mentioning, so he’s definitely a guy to keep an eye on. The Lenoir-Rhyne (if you’ve never heard of it, it’s because it’s a tiny Division II school in North Carolina) safety is a prototypical Dan Quinn prospect. If you want to brush up on the guys who are out there on the field on...
