  1. Falcons - Eagles recap: The heart breaker that wasn’t The Falcons looked to be well on their way to another tough loss against the Eagles, but improbably if not impossibly, they pulled it off. By Dave Choate Sep 16, 2019, 8:00am EDT I don’t know what it is about the Falcons and Eagles in this current era of football that encourages slugfests that are low-scoring and brutal, but it’s a tradition unlike any other. Even the shaky defensive situations for both teams couldn’t change that, as this turned into exactly the kind of game you would have expecte
  2. Falcons - Vikings recap: A dispiriting season opener raises too many familiar questions Atlanta lost because of bad mistakes, a lack of discipline, and questionable defense and blocking. Where have we heard that before? By Dave Choate Sep 9, 2019, 8:00am EDT The Falcons lost. The Falcons were embarrassingly bad. This team is incredibly talented on paper, and while they’re often less than stellar in Week 1s—recall their ugly loss to the Buccaneers in the 2016 opener—there’s far too much talent here for the Falcons to be utterly emb
  3. One final Falcons 53 man roster prediction with cuts looming today Who is in and who is out in the very first 53 man roster for 2019? By Dave Choate Aug 31, 2019, 9:00am EDT Rosters evolve. A year ago, the Falcons surprisingly kept Richard Jarvis as one of their final players, but he didn’t get much of a chance to stick around. So it will go this year as well, but the first 53 man roster still have that glossy sheen because it comes after the team has determined at least the rough contours of its plan for 2019. Let’s get one more in before the rest of
  4. Falcons - Dolphins recap: Overreactions, lead changes, and a 10th straight preseason loss What can we learn from a preseason game where tempting conclusions abound? By Dave Choate Aug 9, 2019, 8:00am EDT When you’re starving for football and all you have is preseason, it’s hard not to draw big, sweeping conclusions based on a handful of plays. It’s especially hard when the Falcons do things you actually like, as they managed to do at times against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. The first half was replete with Ma
  5. There are 10 days until Falcons training camp, so here are ten players who need to improve in 2018 Through injury and disappointing performance, these players will need to bounce back. By Dave Choate Jul 16, 2018, 12:00pm EDT With training camp just ten days away (!), it’s time to talk about the hopeful future that lies ahead. Part of that is discussing players who need to improve and hopefully will improve so that this team can reach new heights, hoist a Lombardi Trophy, and allow us all to die in peace at some indeterminate time in the future.
  6. The Falcons were top ten in total pressures generated by front seven in 2017 4 comments Another reason a defensive front in flux is worrisome. By Dave Choate Mar 10, 2018, 10:00am EST Here’s something that deserves to be called out often this offseason, because of how remarkable it is: The Falcons were one of the better teams in the NFL at generating pressure last year. If you’re thinking it has been a very long time since we could say that, you’re right, because the Falcons have traditionally been an average-to-bad pass rushing team. As
  7. Damontae Kazee will have the opportunity to earn snaps at nickel cornerback Things are about to get interesting at cornerback. By Dave Choate Mar 9, 2018, 10:00am EST Damontae Kazee is an intriguing player. He came into the NFL as a potential cornerback or safety, or perhaps a hybrid of both, and he enjoyed a distinguished college career. We saw enough from him in his limited snaps at safety a year ago to think he might someday be a quality starter in this league. That day doesn’t appear as im
  8. Projecting the Atlanta Falcons individual and team sack totals for 2017 We’ll be bold and say the totals will rise. by Dave Choate Jul 3, 2017, 8:00am EDT Good morning, everyone! Many of you hopefully have the day off, but you’re not getting out of doing some math. This morning, I sat down and tried to guess where the Falcons will arrive at for a team sack total. A year ago, they snagged 34, but 15.5 of those were due to Vic Beasley alone, and the defense should be better this season. I think a jump all the way to 40 is within reason (really!), and
  9. Big Falcons question of the week: Is Austin Hooper ready already? 24 comments The rookie tight end has made a bigger impact than anticipated. By Dave Choate @TheFalcoholic Sep 20, 2016, It’s only two games, as you’re telling yourself this very moment as you move past the headline of this piece. It’s probably too early to start talking about Austin Hooper. In case you’ve been living under a rock that doesn’t have your local CBS affiliate, Austin Hooper has four catches for 98 yards in his first two games. He’s b
  10. Does Matt Ryan have to improve for the Falcons to improve? By Dave Choate @TheFalcoholic on Jul 13, 2016, No, but he will have to be better if the Falcons want to improve in a big way. The question you see in the headline above is the one recently posited by Yahoo! Sports, and it’s worth more consideration than we’ve given it thus far. Basically, the argument here is that while you can’t pin all of the Falcons’ woes on Ryan, he has to be better than he was in a career-worst 2015 season for the Falcons to avoid mediocrity this year. While I’m sympatheti
  11. Is Robenson Therezie really competing with Ricardo Allen for a starting job? By Dave Choate @TheFalcoholic The Falcons may not have free safety settled just yet. There have been more than a few suggestions that Robenson Therezie may be in the running for the starting free safety gig, including suggestions from The Falcoholic. The question is, how seriously should we be taking that possibility? It’s an interesting question for a couple of reasons. The first is that Ricardo Allen is a young starter who played pretty well last year, and has the physicality and agg
  12. If Dan Quinn is on the hot seat, the Falcons are in more trouble than we thought By Dave Choate @TheFalcoholic on Mar 20, 2016, When you hire a coach and give him two years or less to succeed, you are probably not a great franchise. Yet there are some who believe that Dan Quinn is on the hot seat heading into 2017, when the Falcons will open a new stadium. The latest salvo comes from MSN Sports' Mike Batista, who I'm singling out solely because his four day old article was brought to my attention this morning, not because he's on an island with this thought process. H
  13. How The Falcons Offense Can Succeed Against The Bengals By Dave Choate @TheFalcoholic on Sep 9 2014, 7:00p Is it possible that the Falcons are better on offense than they were in 2012? After taking a couple of days to celebrate, we now turn our attention to this weekend's opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals. I'll tackle the offense and defense over the next two days as we try to get a handle on what, exactly, the Falcons can expect when they travel out to the Midwest on Sunday. We'll begin with the offense, which put on an eye-popping performance against the Saints. The team rolled up 568 yards
  14. 6 Key Falcons Position Battles Before Final Cuts By Dave Choate  @TheFalcoholic on Aug 25 2014, 4:28p 95 Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The second round of cuts looms, and the Falcons have tough decisions to make with their reserves. With the first round of cuts, PUP listings and waivings in the books, the Falcons turn their attention settling the roster's many position battles and deciding upon the next round of roster culling. All of this has to happen in less than a week and with only one preseason game and a few practices to go off of, so every spectacular moment and flub matters a gre
