  1. Atlanta hires assistant OL coach Chandler Henley The former Titans quality control coach re-joins Arthur Smith in Atlanta. By Dave Choate Feb 1, 2021, 6:00pm EST 6 Comments Share this story Share this on Facebook (opens in new window) Share this on Twitter (opens in new window) SHAREAll sharing options When the Falcons first hired Arthur Smith, it seemed like a safe bet he’d take some assistants from the Tennessee Titans with him, given that he spent more than a decade w
  2. Link Thomas Dimitroff’s mounting roster failures and cap decisions have doomed the Falcons Accountability starts at the top. The man at the top has been egregiously mismanaging nearly every aspect of this team, making the same mistakes time and time again. By Matthew Chambers@FalcoholicMatt Nov 26, 2019 Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images The Falcons sunk from a 25-point lead in the Super Bowl to the clear bottom of the NFC South so quickly you could get whiplash. 2016’s team is a memory with no connection to what we see

I knew that might be a long shot, but now it looks like an absolute pipe dream. Per Jeff Schultz at The Athletic, the Falcons are shopping Vic Beasley hard ahead of the trade deadline but aren’t exactly finding a ton of suitors. This is endlessly aggravating for any number of reasons. The team’s decision

It’s when that ineptitude starts intersecting with history that we have a big, big problem, and that’s happening now. The Falcons have currently gone four straight games without getting a sack. We know, as Mike Smith was fond of saying, that sacks aren’t everything, and the Falcons did manage to get some actual pressure on Jared Goff after spending the previous three lar

After doing some digging, we found that Atlanta’s 53-32 drubbing at the hands of the Texans was their worst defensive performance of Dan Quinn’s tenure and the most points they’ve allowed since 2004. It appears that the national media has picked up on the embarrassing showing as well, with NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah particularly shocked w

It’s obvious why. The parallels are there. Both years have featured a coach coming off a deeply disappointing, injury-riddled year and knowing they’re on the hot seat. Both have featured heavy investments in free agency and the draft to improve the trenches. And both seasons, as we’re learning quickly about 2019, are ma
  7. It was a hot one in Flowery Branch today, and the Falcons were sweating it out in full pads for their second day of scrimmaging. The team essentially simulated a full game over Sunday and Monday. Tomorrow the team will focus on preparing more specifically for the Broncos in advance of the Hall of Fame matchup on Thursday. Wednesday they’ll travel, and Thursday they’ll take the field for the first somewhat real game of the 2019 NFL season. Here’s what you need to know from Monday’s practice. Day 7 notes Russell Gage once again got his fair share of targets with the first tea

As Durham put it, “this guy isn’t looking for a fight, he’s going to start one.” Falcons training camp: Observations on the offensive line And why Ty Sambrailo should be looking over his shoulder. By David J Walker on July 28, 2019 1:00 pm Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports After a 2018 season in which Matt Ryan was hit and sacked at one of the highest rates in his career, the front office decided they had to address the offensive line with gusto going into 2019.

After an unforgettable 2016 (for good and very bad), Dan Quinn avoided a predicted down season in part to a dramatically improving defense. Unquestionably one of the team’s best defense

By Evan Birchfield on June 9, 2019 12:00 pm On June 30, 1965, the National Football League awarded the city of Atlanta an NFL franchise, making them the 15th team in the league. The 1966 season would be the Atlanta Falcons’ inaugural season, but before it could all begin, training camp had to occur. The first ever training camp in

As you’d expect after a year where most of the NFC South was a vast disappointment and the Saints largely excelled, the Saints are the heavy favorite to win the division this coming year. That’s especially true after a free agency period where the Saints did not demonstrably get worse and may well have gotten better, with only the Buccaneer

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. Th

Cox/Getty Images Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Justin Hardy has a big year ahead of him. “Make or break” would probably be hyperbole here, because Hardy is just looking to keep getting paid to play football. Problem is he may struggle to stay relevant on a team with such a loaded offense, including a shiny new first round draft

Former Seattle DL coach Travis Jones and former NFLUK head of football development Aden Durde have been hired as the new assistant defensive line coach and a defensive quality control assistant, respectively, per the team. Some background on both. Jones was Quinn’

Falcons were unimpressed with Matt LaFleur’s work, and let him walk before hiring Steve Sarkisian Now that the wheels have completely fallen off of the Falcons offense, we’ve been wondering why Dan Quinn didn’t just promote Matt LaFleur. by Matthew Chambers@FalcoholicMatt Oct 23, 2017, 5:53pm ED https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2017/10/23/16527676/falcons-were-unimpressed-with-matt-lafleurs-work-and-let-him-walk-before-hiring-steve-sarkisian Thanks to their long Super Bowl run, the Atlanta Falcons did not have a whole lot of options for offensive coordinator.

He looked unsettled against an outstanding Bills’ defense. It wasn’t surprising, considering Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu were injured. Missing both of your starting wide receivers for an entire half in a close game is going to create problems. The real issue is Ryan’s troubles started long before both pl

There was a lot of expected competition, then Devin Fuller tore his ACL last week. The team made it official, giving fuller the waived/injured designation. He will almost certainly pass through waivers and end up on Atlanta’s injured reserve. Man,

Report: Falcons traded up for Takkarist McKinley to leapfrog Dallas Cowboys Dallas was also thirsty for a pass rusher. by Dave Choate May 12, 2017, 8:00am EDT TWEET The Atlanta Falcons needed a pass rusher pretty badly, as we repeatedly argued in the run-up to the draft. To ensure they got the one they liked, they had to swap up a few spots, and now we have our most concrete reports that indicate why they felt they had to go up. It was the Dallas Cowboys, of course.

I thought we might have a twist or turn here that turned the whole thing upside down, but instead, Matt Ryan coasted to victory. In his final matchup against Julio Jones, Ryan took close to 75% of the votes. He’s fresh off an MVP season and a Su

He’s been there, he’s done that, he’s burned through truckloads of hair product. So even when faced with a substantial challenge, Dimitroff isn’t backing down. Successfully re-signing both Desmond Trufant and Devonta Freeman is one such challenge. Dimitroff sat down with Alex Marvez and Vic Carucci on SiriusXM NFL Radio today and he had some interesting
