  1. Falcons LT Jake Matthews has been diagnosed with a sprained left knee, but the team is "hopeful" he can practice on Thursday.

    Dec 5 - 2:45 PM

    Julio Jones is dealing with a case of turf toe, but is expected to be fine.

    Dec 5 - 2:40 PM
  2. I hate this rule, Beasley, in my opinion, got robbed of a sack the same way. Even if a quarterback starts running, and he's still behind the LOS, he can pull up at ANY time and throw the ball. In fact I think it was Cam that did this on a goal line play a few years ago, where he kept the ball and went to run in, and jumped up and jumpshotted the ball to Olsen. Any tackle of a quarterback behind the LOS should be a sack, plain and simple.

  3. With Deion Jones (ankle) out, LaRoy Reynolds will start at middle linebacker for the Falcons on Sunday.

    The veteran takes over in the center of the Atlanta defense and will hope to slow Denver running back C.J. Anderson. While the Falcons have excelled offensively, their defense is allowing 31.0 points and 317.0 passing yards per game. The Falcons D/ST is not on the streaming radar even in a potential matchup against rookie QB Paxton Lynch.

    I thought that TFL was miscommunication by the tackle. Am I remembering it wrong?

    I'm not quite sure if it was a miscommunication or if it was a read option play that Cam should have kept, maybe both? lol...Here's the play

    Panthers left tackle Mike Remmers was expecting Falcons defensive end Dwight Freeney's famous spin move, and that's what he saw - until he didn't.

    When Freeney started to spin back inside, Remmers stepped to his right in anticipation. But Freeney spun back to the outside, leaving Remmers flat-footed as Freeney ran free to quarterback Cam Newton and sacked him for an eight-yard loss in the second quarter.

    Been drooling over this nonstop since Sunday lol

  6. Freeney was an absolute monster against Carolina, and his fake-spin sack on Newton was one of the most beautiful things I've seen on our defense in a while.


    First the setup, on Carolinas first drive of the game

    And here's both views of the sack

    Looking forward to this all season long...Rise Up!!

  7. People would be bitching if he fair caught them because without hindsight you wouldn't know they were going to bounce straight up instead of flying out the back of the endzone. Most the time those punts are touchbacks and we start at the 20, there punter did a **** good job.

  8. If I remember correctly Beasley hurt his shoulder in the preseason, maybe he's just getting back to full strength?  Also helps when you don't spin move every other play lol..Hopefully he continues to progress as the season goes on. Freeney on the other hand, completely balled out today.

  9. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Sanu twisted his ankle in the Week 1 loss to the Bucs, but played through it and should be ready to roll against the Raiders after a 5-80-1 line in the opener.

    Julio Jones (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

    Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was also limited Wednesday. Both players turned their ankles in the Week 1 loss to the Bucs, but Jones and Sanu continued to play. They should be fine for Week 2 against the Raiders.
