  1. MOBILE, Ala. - Few people are as plugged in to the inner workings of the NFL than Ian Rapoport. The NFL Network insider has his finger on the pulse of trade talks, pending deals and organizational decision making across the league. Rapoport was among those in attendance at the 2020 Reese's Senior Bowl, and he took a few minutes to share his thoughts on the Atlanta Falcons' upcoming offseason, which he believes could be busy. "They definitely addressed the offensive line in the draft," Rapoport said. "Can you go spend a little, probably a little more than you'd like to spend, in free
  2. It is something I have been thinking of for a while, and while watching First Take this morning they kinda touched on it and really got me thinking. What is the identity of the Atlanta Falcons? Specifically with Dan Quinn? What is the one or two things we always know we can hang our hat on? I ask my children, "What is your default setting?" When you have the world crumbling around you, when things are going to crap, what is your default setting? What will be there for you to lean on through the good times and bad? New England - Doesn't make mistakes, will let you bury yourself.
  3. What to expect from the Falcons offense with Dirk Koetter running the show FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – What will the Falcons’ offense look like under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter? That has been a topic of discussion around Atlanta since the team made a change at that coordinator position, and it was a central topic during Koetter’s introductory press conference Wednesday. Real answers won’t surface until the players return in the spring, and likely long after that, still. But Koetter did share a few different insights into how he’s approaching his return to Atlant
  4. Several players made impressions as the Falcons' two-day rookie minicamp concluded Saturday. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons’ rookie minicamp is officially in the books. A total of 67 players – including six draft picks, free-agent signees and about two dozen tryout players – tried their best to make lasting impressions on the coaching staff during the two-day event. And while some definitely did, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said it doesn’t make the roster decisions any easier. “It’s a good day and, also as a coach, it’s a tough day,” Quinn said. “There’s 60 men here today and

  6. Michael Ford - RB - FalconsFalcons signed RB Michael Ford, formerly of the Bears. 25-year-old Ford spent 2014 out of football after being cut by Chicago.

  7. Q: After being able to watch a full practice, what is your impression of the 2015 Falcons? 
 AM: Not to knock the energy level of last year, but this is at a complete other level. It’s very different. I know that Seattle has been using a DJ before, but in 21 years of covering NFL practices; I have never actually seen a DJ spinning music at practice. When I talked to O’Brien Schofield and he said that guys ask him everyday, “Is this real, is this really happening?” I think players are really buying into the energy that Dan Quinn and his staff have here in Atlanta. And I think that is one of
  8. KC: What are some of the specific things you are looking for from Dan Quinn and the Falcons as you watch practice today? PK: I think one of the interesting things when a new coach comes in, especially a coach particularly on one side of the ball, is that I want to see Dan Quinn’s defensive personality. I really thought that there was a disconnect between the coaching staff and a lot of the players in terms of how aggressive an NFL defense should be and has to be. And I think that Dan Quinn has come in and basically said to these guys, ‘we are going to be the most attacking team in football.’
  9. The Falcons wrapped up the second day of XFINITY® Training Camp in front of a large crowd of fans Saturday morning. Although the team will not be in full-pads until Monday’s practice, head coach Dan Quinn showed excitement about what he has seen thus far. While implementing a new high-tempo practice style, the energetic coach puts his players in different situations that allows him to make specific evaluations. When asked who the biggest surprise of camp has been, Quinn didn’t just mention one or two names. Instead, he changed the format of the question to key-in on a group of people that
  10. Hankerson Impresses: Leonard Hankerson was Atlanta’s best wide receiver on Friday. The former Miami Hurricane who signed a one-year deal in March, hauled in more than a handful of impressive catches, appeared comfortable in his new surroundings. He displayed versatility by flourishing out wide and in the slot and his teammates certainly noticed. “(Hankerson) did good, man,” Roddy White said. “He made a lot of plays.” Health Improving: Some of the guys were limited, but the only notable face missing wasLamar Holmes, who is on the PUP list with a broken foot. Offensive linemenJake Matthews and
  11. A new culture: The environment at Flowery Branch has transformed considerably since Dan Quinn took over, and it’s palpable on the field. Quinn said he doesn’t want to have “clean” practices in which everything goes smoothly; instead, he wants to foster an intense atmosphere similar to what they’ll experience on Sundays. So far, the players seem to be embracing this change. “[Practice is] definitely fast,” safety Charles Godfrey said. “That’s what we’re going to be. When people watch us, they’re going to be like, ‘Golly, they run. They run to the ball and they get the ball.’ That’s our focus
  12. 1. The Fun Begins: Falcons head coach Dan Quinn couldn't wait to connect with his players from the moment he signed with the team in February, followed by hours of film study, player evaluation, interviews and scouting trips. Allowed to hold his team's first on-field practice of the offseason Tuesday, Quinn was very pleased with the energy and efforts of his players, provided with further evidence of the speed and attitude each brings to the field. The Falcons' new head coach has had a lot on his plate lately, preparing for the voluntary minicamp, followed by the 2015 NFL Draft, beginning Thu
  13. 1. Overtime Victory Keyed by Moore, Bartu: Entering overtime of the Week 1 matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons, the Saints won the coin toss and elected to receive, but two plays into the drive, Falcons S William Moore forced a fumble, recovered by Falcons LB Joplo Bartu. Falcons K Matt Bryant did the rest, calmly taking the field, nailing a 52-yard game-winning field goal, topping the Saints 37-34. 2. Ryan Leads Game-Tying Drive: With 1:20 to play in the game, trailing by three points to the Saints, and one timeout remaining, Falcons QB Matt Ryan led his team on a game-
  14. 1. Ryan Efficient in Opener: The Falcons’ offense looked sharp in a 15-play opening drive that saw the entire first-team sans Julio Jones getting snaps. It took 77 yards but the Falcons got into the end zone on a 2-yard run byJacquizz Rodgers, but it was Matt Ryan’s prowess that got them there. Ryan was 7-for-7 on the drive for 53 yards and found Roddy White for three third-down conversion passes to keep the drive going. The scoring drive lasted 9 minutes, 16 seconds. Ryan was pulled in favor of TJ Yates after the drive. 2. Antone Smith Racks Up Yards — Sort Of: If the NFL was a penalty-free l
