  1. Hi all, on Sunday it's going down. And with all the excitement about the big contract, Wr Julio Jones just received. I'm also excited about seeing also paid Falcons LB, Deion Jones. Hitting the field for the first time on Sunday vs Vikings. I did an audio-video on why I believe Deion Jones can have an even better year. Behind this defensive line. Then he did when Dontari Poe was here in 2017. If you have a chance to watch the video. That would be much appreciated. But I would like to know if you share the same sentiment about Deion Jone in 2019? Also, do you feel that Duke Riley can build off of what he showed in the 3rd preseason dress rehearsal game? #Riseup
  2. Hi all, J.R. Clark from Pound 4 Pound ATL. Shares his thoughts on the Atlanta Falcons offense. As he shares his thoughts. We look forward to hearing yours. #Riseup
  3. Checkout Pound4PoundATL's video on what we saw on the Atlanta Falcons Military Appreciation Day. From our live stream on our channel.
  4. OK yes Rashede Hagman started off pretty well then got in trouble for spousal Abuse . And some other charge . you got to remember these young players are barely adults. No not exscusing what he did but he soon realized he could never put those pads on again. He finished all court requirements, and all programs . So since he was I think second round pick , and he worked out whole time when out of NFL. This player I believe will show all what he can do,he said he is only focusing on second Chance in NFL. He played some with Falcons before suspension and was doing pretty well, he can get after QB, he knows how use his hands, Quick off line, very physical . this is A player I say this year will turn some heads. After he serves 2 game suspension or 3.#Thisisouryear#Riseup#Inbrotherhood#TFF(True Falcon Fan)
  5. https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2019/5/18/18627770/the-falcons-have-only-had-two-top-10-defenses-since-1998 The Falcons have only had two top 10 defenses since 1998 Expecting the Falcons to take a leap this year? Beware history. By Dave Choate May 18, 2019, 3:00pm EDT Having a good Saturday? Well, time to talk about the Falcons defense! There has been a lot of discussion about this Falcons defense and what we might reasonably expect from it. With better health and some key additions like Adrian Clayborn, Tyeler Davison, and depth in the secondary, it seems reasonable to expect it will not be a massive liability the way it was throughout much of the first half of the 2018 season, but can it be the (at least on paper) top ten unit it was in 2017? The chief reason to be skeptical (and I am) hinges on history. Here is the complete list of defenses that have been top ten in points and yards allowed since 1998. 2017: Points: 8, Yards: 9 1998: Points: 4, Yards: 8 Here’s the complete list of Falcons defenses that have been top ten in either points or yards allowed since 1998. 2012: Points: 5, Yards: 24 2010: Points: 5, Yards: 16 2002: Points: 8, Yards: 19 That’s it! That’s the list. This tells a pretty somber story, but not one that is going to surprise the bulk of Falcons fans. This team has had some superlative talent on defense over the years, but rarely enough to push them into being what we would consider a good defense. The 1998 Super Bowl team boasted a phenomenal unit, that 2017 team was stingy and dangerous and nearly smothered the Eagles in the playoffs, and the team was opportunistic enough to hold teams in check in 2010 and 2012. But that really has been about it, and any chance of the team repeating their success in 2017 was destroyed by the cumulative loss of Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen, and Deion Jones, plus injuries and ineffectiveness for key players like Robert Alford and Vic Beasley. This is why the Falcons, despite their evident talent and Dan Quinn’s hands-onedness, shouldn’t be counted on to take a major leap on that side of the ball in 2019. I’m confident they’ll be much better than they were a year ago, and I’m equally confident that being top ten in points and yards isn’t the end-all, be-all story for a defense. But I’m also pretty hard-pressed to be confident that the team will reach those lofty heights given that they’ve done so just twice in 1998, and they’ve only been top ten in points five times and yards just the two times in that span. With the offense in place, even modest improvement will do the trick, but the grandest surprise would be one of the league’s best rankings for a unit that could do it despite the weight of history.
  6. MODS COULD YOU PLEASE UN-PIN THE 2018 POST AND PIN THIS ONE! So for 3 years now I have made a thread dedicated to the scouts looking at players for the upcoming draft. You may Post here and update the findings on players the Falcons have visited, scouted, and any info you may find on social media so we can get a better idea about what the Falcons are looking for. I will be listing them by position below as well as do Videos on players we are looking at on my YouTube channel ( Link below ) if they are heavily scouted by the Falcons scouting department.

  7. RED ALERT! RED ALERT! The nightmare Super Bowl match up in our building is one step closer! The Patriots and the Saints are ONE win away, but it's going to be up to the Chiefs and the Rams next week who are going to have rematches against these teams who beat them in the regular season. The Patriots have to go to Kansas City this time, but the Saints will still be in their voodoo house again vs the Rams. The legacy of Atlanta sports could be tarnished for eternity if the Chiefs and Rams don't pull these victories out.
  8. I find this interesting. I'm going to leave this here. Feel free to discuss your thoughts and I'll chime in later.
  9. Projecting what an NFL team is going to look like in two years is hard. Go back to Week 1 of the 2016 season and you'll see what I mean. Drew Brees was throwing to Brandin Cooks and Coby Fleener. The 49ers shut out the Rams and starting quarterback Case Keenum 28-0 in a game in which Blaine Gabbertstarted ahead of Colin Kaepernick. The starting running backs in the Dolphins-Seahawks game were Arian Foster and Christine Michael. Things change quickly. Recently, I was talking to Lindsay Jones of The Athletic on my podcast, and we started wondering what the 2020 Raiders' roster might look like as Jon Gruden & Co. make their move to Las Vegas. We didn't get very far, and that was before the Amari Cooper trade happened. I think it's an interesting exercise, though, so I've gone ahead and tried to project which players from each team's 2018 roster are likely to make it onto their roster come Week 1 of 2020. Those rosters will obviously include 2019 and 2020 draft picks, and there are young players who will emerge as meaningful contributors between now and then, so consider this an imperfect look into what each team's long-term core currently looks like, nearly halfway through the 2018 campaign. I've split each team into three groups. The virtual locks section is for players I think have at least a 90 percent shot of making the 2020 roster, given their contract situation and draft status. In most cases, I would expect 2017 and 2018 draft picks taken in the top three rounds to make it to 2020, which is reflected here. The on the bubble group is for the players I think have something closer to a 55 percent shot of appearing on the roster in 2020. They might be starring veterans who have onerous contracts in the future, young players who haven't found their role, or placeholders who are likely to be usurped by a draft pick or let go as part of a regime change. Finally, the unlikely notables section is for players who have no more than a 15 percent shot of making it to 2020 on the same team. This section is for mid-30s veterans who are likely to retire, young players who are riding pine, and regulars whose contracts will be even more difficult to swallow by the 2020 offseason. I've tried to limit this to more notable players, if only to avoid listing every practice-squad member or backup long-snapper and make this column five times as long. As always, I'm sure a player or two sneaked through the list, but this should be some comparative insight into what each NFL organization has built for the future. Some of the cores surprised me. Let's start with a team in the middle of a massive rebuild and go in alphabetical order: Atlanta Falcons Virtual locks: QB Matt Ryan, WR Julio Jones, T Jake Matthews, DE Takkarist McKinley, S Keanu Neal, LB Deion Jones, CB Isaiah Oliver, DT Deadrin Senat, WR Calvin Ridley All the agents for Deion Jones and Neal have to do to point out their clients' value is show tape of the 2018 Falcons' defense after they went on injured reserve. Ridley has nearly as many touchdowns in a half-season (six) as the three top-10 wideouts of the 2017 class have over their first year and a half combined (seven). On the bubble: DE Vic Beasley, C Alex Mack, CB Robert Alford, T Ryan Schraeder, CB Desmond Trufant, S Ricardo Allen, RB Tevin Coleman, DT Grady Jarrett, LB De'Vondre Campbell, RB Ito Smith, CB Brian Poole, TE Austin Hooper, LB Duke Riley Atlanta's defensive collapse might call its cornerbacks into question, with Alford standing out as a frequently burned problem. The Falcons will have to work out new deals for Jarrett after 2018 and Beasley after 2019; given Beasley's lack of production since leading the league in sacks in 2016, the Falcons should lean toward renewing Jarrett and letting Beasley test the market. Unlikely notables: WR Mohamed Sanu, RB Devonta Freeman, G Andy Levitre, G Brandon Fusco, K Matt Bryant Freeman has missed time in both 2017 and 2018 since signing a five-year, $41.3 million extension before the 2017 campaign; the Falcons can get out of his deal with $6 million in dead money before 2020 and might be better off using the savings elsewhere. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25133131/projecting-2020-roster-locks-bubble-players-all-32-nfl-teams#atl
  10. https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2018/10/2/17923576/dan-quinn-already-missed-his-chance-to-fix-the-atlanta-falcons-defense Remember last week? I sure do. It feels like only a few days ago. As per usual, the Atlanta Falcons were hit with another major injury to their defense after their defense had already hemorrhaged yards and points for four quarters and one awful overtime drive. We offered up some potential fixes for the team that would be just enough glue and tape to keep the defense together until Deion Jones returns. Those players included Eric Reid, John Simon, and Earl Thomas. Those players have been signed by the Carolina Panthers, broken their leg, and signed by the New England Patriots, respectively. It looks like Quinn missed his opportunity entirely to shore up the problematic secondary. There were options, but he was not interested in any starters. Well, lets see how that plan worked out. Kemal Ishmael only played on special teams. Jordan Richards only played 19 defensive snaps. Last Monday’s plan didn’t last six days. Instead, Brian Poole played a lot of safety, pushing the very raw Isaiah Oliver into action. None of that worked. Andy Dalton toss up 37 points. You don’t end up at 1-3 without some problems. Criticism will come naturally from that record. Unfortunately, Quinn painted himself into a corner. The easiest moves are gone. The Falcons were struggling with the loss of Adrian Clayborn and Dontari Poe, then they lost Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, and Ricardo Allen. That’s five starters from 2017, and the Falcons have signed Sharrod Neasman. Sorry, but that’s a bad move. This is reminiscent of watching the league’s worst defense in 2014. We heard each week the staff would look at personnel, scheme, and play calling, and we saw the exact same result every week. Sometimes teams need to be aggressive. Last week was Atlanta’s time to do that. The Falcons defense may improve, but it’s not going to bounce back to a strength with this personnel.
  11. I'm surprised no one has taken note of this. If we want to save our season against the Bengals this Sunday, we have to get over this ridiculous, aggravating, and frustrating stat that we couldn't overcome against the Bills and Dolphins last season. I understand that 2013 and 2014 were the ruff years with Matt Ryan when our O-line was bad and our defense was atrocious, but with the easy schedule we had in 2015 and the good teams we had in 2016 & 2017 considering the AFC teams we played at home, this has become unacceptable and I'm tired of it. Heck, we have a better point differential on the road against AFC opponents than being at home vs. AFC opponents since 2012, because even in 2012 our wins on the road in Kansas City and San Diego were blowouts but our home wins against the Broncos and Raiders were decided by 6 or less. 2015 vs. the Texans, the franchise whose home was the Super Bowl we ended up playing in the following year is our only AFC home win in that stretch. The Falcons must put to an end to this issue now! I'm sick and tired of losing to AFC teams on our HOME turf where the crowd should be showing up. We were doing this "winning the Super Bowl in Atlanta" talk all off season long (which seems unlikely now considering the injuries we have). Well, if you can't beat an AFC team on your home turf, then you don't deserve to go to the Super Bowl in your home stadium with a shot against the AFC championship winner. Why are the Falcons better on the road playing AFC teams lately? Why can't we win a home game against AFC teams? Why can't we ever win in our home red jerseys or black jerseys playing AFC teams? We let a Colts team without Andrew Luck beat us in 2015. We were the only NFC South team with a loss to the Chargers in 2016. We lost to the Chiefs on a pick 2. We couldn't beat a Bills team with Tyrod Taylor at QB. We were the only NFC South team with a loss to the Dolphins with Jay Cutler. Something must change now, and it starts by having success against AFC teams at home again by beating the Bengals this Sunday in a game which is a must win now. Edit: The trend continues.
