Falcons fans’ pettiest rooting interests guide and picks for NFL Week 15 games

Falcons fans’ pettiest rooting interests guide and picks for NFL Week 15 games

Don’t let the Falcons being terrible distract you from rooting against the Saints. This season is miserable, but it’s not over. If you’re petty, like me, you can still find a few ways to enjoy yourself over the next three games. Even if you’re hate-watching at this point, it’s more fun when you feel like you’ve got a stake in these games. I’m here to help with this handy rooting interests guide. When I send the Google form to the guys for their picks each week, they have to add their names at the top of the document. I’ve taken to putting something to the extent of...

A sad Falcons fan’s guide to surviving the last 3 games of this garbage season

A sad Falcons fan’s guide to surviving the last 3 games of this garbage season

We’re in the home stretch, at least. I’m not going to sugarcoat this. This season has been a damn disaster. We had such high hopes for the team’s potential in 2018, which quickly transitioned to no hope whatsoever once we saw the lackluster effort against the Browns. The team has looked completely lost for five consecutive games, and we’ve still got to sit through three more of them before we can effectively tap out on this season. The Falcoholic is suffering, too, but we’ll all get through these last three games together. Here are some tips. Start as many players from...

The Falcoholic’s official NFL rooting interests guide and picks for Week 14

The Falcoholic’s official NFL rooting interests guide and picks for Week 14

There’s not much point in being particularly invested in the Falcons’ outcome against Green Bay, so let’s be petty about the teams we hate. We had such high hopes at the start of the season. Now everything has disintegrated into injury-fueled chaos, and the best possible outcome for the Falcons is an 8-8 season. Many times, rooting interests this time of year revolve around which teams need to lose to give the Falcons a better shot at the postseason or better position in the standings. This year, not so much. But we’re here to break down some options for you as we look toward this...

What’s the worst-case scenario for the Falcons over the last 4 games of the season?

What’s the worst-case scenario for the Falcons over the last 4 games of the season?

The Falcoholic staff discusses the possibilities. This whole Falcons season feels like a worst case scenario. It’s a bizarro world we’re living in, and the end result of this season is going to be so far off the mark of what we expected going into it, so we may as well batten down the hatches and prepare for the worst. What does that look like? Our staff has some hot takes. The Falcons lose out and finish 4-12 Look, this isn’t going to be everybody’s worst-case scenario, but tanking isn’t in my DNA. So my nightmare is watching this team not just lose the last four games of the...

Is Falcons head coach Dan Quinn’s seat getting hotter? The Falcoholic staff weighs in.

Is Falcons head coach Dan Quinn’s seat getting hotter? The Falcoholic staff weighs in.

Dan Quinn almost certainly won’t, and shouldn’t, be fired after the season. But is his seat heating up? We’re staring down the last four games of the season as the Falcons sit at 4-8, and it’s hard to not be frustrated. Some of that frustration has been rightly directed at the coaching staff, and the man who’s ultimately responsible for how they perform — Dan Quinn. Before the injuries, before the team came out and played like they were just entitled to beating the Browns, Cowboys, Saints, and Ravens without really trying, it would have been difficult to imagine Dan Quinn...

Falcons players to participate in My Cause, My Cleats to benefit worthy causes

Falcons players to participate in My Cause, My Cleats to benefit worthy causes

For three weeks out of the season, the NFL lets players wear custom cleats to help those in need. It won’t just be Mohamed Sanu sporting fancy custom cleats over the next couple of weeks, and they won’t be limited to warmups. Atlanta will have 16 players and head coach Dan Quinn participating in My Cause, My Cleats this year to benefit charities of their choosing. The NFL is generally a stick in the mud about any deviation from its uniform policy. DeAngelo Williams was fined in 2015 for wearing eye black that read “Find the Cure” in honor of his mother, Sandra Hill, who lost her...

Deion Jones will return to the field for Ravens vs. Falcons

Deion Jones will return to the field for Ravens vs. Falcons

He should provide a much-needed boost to this injury-depleted defense. We’ve all missed Deion Jones, and we’ve finally got some good news to share. Jones will be back on the field this week when the Falcons face the Ravens in Atlanta. Dan Quinn shared that news with the media on Friday. #Falcons LB Deion Jones is ready to play vs #Ravens— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@DOrlandoAJC) November 30, 2018 Defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel simply said, “We’ll see, we’ll see,” about Jones’ status when I was there for media availability on Wednesday. But he may have tipped his...

A guide to talking about the Falcons with your family at Thanksgiving this year

We’re here to help. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to build cherished memories with your loved ones. This year, those memories will include whatever happens between the Falcons and the Saints on Thursday night.

Or if it’s the team that lost in consecutive weeks to the Browns and the Cowboys, you and your Falcons fan family and friends are going to...

Falcons 6, Cowboys 3: Second half open thread

Falcons 6, Cowboys 3: Second half open thread

It would be nice to see this team score more than three points at a time today. The Falcons haven’t gotten much done against the Cowboys so far, but at least they have been able to hold Dallas to a single field goal at the half. The problem is that they’ve only managed to score two field goals. Everything in this game has been a mixed bag. We’ve had injury scares with Damontae Kazee and Desmond Trufant, both of whom returned to the game. We’ve seen Julio Jones save Matt Ryan from not one, but two picks, and we’ve also seen the dang ball bounce right off of his hands like...

‘Thursday Night Kickoff’ on FOX 5 Atlanta explores former Falcons who could help the team now

‘Thursday Night Kickoff’ on FOX 5 Atlanta explores former Falcons who could help the team now

Tune in on Thursday night at 7 p.m. for Jeanna’s Mailbag. It’s been a brutal year for injuries for the Falcons, and we finally got some good news when the team announced that Deion Jones would be activated off of injured reserve. With Deion back, we went to Falcons Twitter to find out which other ghost of Falcons past fans would like to see brought back to help the team get to the playoffs. Some answers were hilarious. Some made us sad because they mentioned players we all love and miss. And some were just various versions of “LOL playoffs??!?!!!?!” We picked the best ones, and as...

Falcons K Matt Bryant practiced Thursday, Deion Jones still limited

Falcons K Matt Bryant practiced Thursday, Deion Jones still limited

Every player on the roster participated to some extent on Thursday. The key thing to take away from Thursday’s injury report is that every single player on the roster participated to some extent. That includes kicker Matt Bryant and defensive end Derrick Shelby, both of whom were completely sidelined on Wednesday. The Falcons are going to eventually have to make a decision about the kicker spot. Giorgio Tavecchio has filled in admirably since Bryant went down with a hamstring injury, and Bryant isn’t getting any younger. But there are few players on the roster fans respect as much as...
