  1. I want Koetter's a$$ booted out, too. But other than Knapp, I really don't see anybody on staff who could/would take over. No other offensive assistants have called plays (per their bios) and Knapp hasn't done it since 2012. We're stuck with Koetter till the end of the season...... https://www.atlantafalcons.com/team/coaches-roster/
  2. by Tori McElhaney Fans have become accustomed to blaming the Falcons’ defense for many of the losses the team has racked up through Week 11. Make no mistake about it, however, the 24-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday was not the fault of the defense. Could the defense have played better? Absolutely. Darqueze Dennard said the unit left a lot of plays on the field, and it did, but Dennard and Raheem Morris weren’t displeased with the defense’s overall performance, especially not knowing until Friday that it would face Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston for an injured Drew B

  4. This was written and published prior to the news about Hill (supposedly) starting by Tori McElhaney for The Athletic Defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich thought it was interesting, maybe a bit humorous, that there is a slight “fuss” being made about the Falcons’ defense getting more pressure, bringing more players on blitzes, having more creative blitzing packages and getting quarterbacks off their spot more frequently in recent games. While the Falcons have added some wrinkles to the defense in recent weeks and have used them in games, Ulbrich said the perception o
  5. by Tori McElhaney for The Athletic We took a look back at the first nine games of the season last week and graded out almost every single layer of the Falcons’ starting offensive and defensive units. Now, with the bye week behind us, it’s time to look ahead to the second half of the season. Interim coach Raheem Morris said the focus of the bye week for the offense was figuring out how to maintain leads late in games. He said the Falcons (3-6) discussed how they can’t get so confined in a box “that you limit yourself.” “We’d like to come out and be more aggressive, come ou
  6. by Dave Choate for The Falcoholic You may have noticed this year that quarterbacks sometimes do not have a small eternity in the pocket to throw against the Falcons. Sometimes, they are being forced to throw the ball more quickly than they would like, or even forced out of the pocket entirely. This strange phenomenon is, according to top scientists I’ve worked with, called pressure, and it’s something the Falcons are suddenly good at getting. The Falcons are third in the NFL in pressures with 95. Remarkably, they finished 31st in the NFL in that statistic just a year ago, put
  7. by Bob McGinn for The Athletic Unlike today, there was a time in the NFL, most commonly in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, when a goodly share of head coaches also operated as their own general managers. That was the arrangement in February 1987 when Rankin Smith, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, hired Marion Campbell to coach and make the final decisions on the draft. The Smith family, which included sons Rankin Jr. and Taylor, extended power to Campbell only a short while after general manager Tom Braatz left the Falcons to head the Green Bay Packers’ front office. Campbell lacke
