Burning 2019 Falcons questions: What can we expect from Atlanta’s offensive line?

Burning 2019 Falcons questions: What can we expect from Atlanta’s offensive line?

We saw heavy investments in this unit this offseason. Will they pay off? Matt Ryan somehow pulled together a 2018 season that was similar in productivity to his MVP year in 2016. But he did that behind an offensive line that allowed 42 sacks and a whopping 108 quarterback hits. It didn’t help that Devonta Freeman landed on injured reserve, but the line couldn’t get enough push to get anything going on the ground, either. The Falcons finished the season ranked No. 27 in the NFL with 1,573 yards on the ground. Both of Atlanta’s starting guards landed on injured reserve, and Ryan...

Which Atlanta team will be next to win a championship?

Which Atlanta team will be next to win a championship?

There are some contenders in this city. The year was 1995. Mariah Carey’s ‘Fantasy’ was on top of the Billboard Hot 100. Get Shorty, starring John Travolta and Rene Russo, was No. 1 at the box office. And that October, the Braves brought a World Series win to Atlanta. Atlanta United did win a championship in 2018, which was just its second season of existence. That kind of instant gratification is foreign to Atlanta sports fans who aren’t also, I don’t know, Alabama fans or something, too. We’re all much more accustomed to the waiting, the suffering, the remembering the good...

Which Falcons player or coach would you invite to your July 4th cookout?

Happy Independence Day! As we all celebrate our independence today, The Falcoholic has a burning question for you. Which Falcons player or coach would you invite to your cookout today? Maybe it’s Matt Ryan, because you need someone to bring the ice. Maybe you’ve got a lot of food, so you need some offensive linemen to keep you from dealing with a bunch of leftovers. These are the players our writers would invite, and weigh in with your choices in the comments. Julio Jones and I’d give him a plus-three for the Migos This would be a 4th of July story for the ages. The only thing...

What if the results of each 1-score Falcons game last season were reversed?

What if the results of each 1-score Falcons game last season were reversed?

Would it have made much of a difference? It’s never fun to watch the Falcons lose. It’s more frustrating when they drop a game by less than one touchdown. The Falcons did that to us quite a bit last season. Of their nine losses, four were decided by fewer than seven points. On the flip side, two of the team’s seven wins were within a score of being losses. In a game that close, it can go either way. Our friends at Pride of Detroit took a look at this across the league, and now we’re going to dig into what might have been if the results of all of the Falcons’ one-score games last...

The Falcoholic writers preview the 2019 season in visual form. We’re at the point of the offseason when we’re all just ready for football to be back.
