  1. That time of year where we'll hear information about moving up, down, and all around. But still news, from this morning's MMQB with Albert Breer: "So you’ve come for draft nuggets? Here are 10 for you… • I’m told the Bengals have maxed out their time with Burrow over the last few weeks, as they work to build a relationship with him. What does that mean? Well, each team is allowed to do three one-hour calls with each prospect per week. So every week, Cincinnati has done, yes, three one-hour calls with Burrow. If you listened to my podcast with Burrow’s trainer, Jordan Palmer, a

Trading Beasley (if someone would take him) is a way to get something from a huge nothing. Trading Hoop is something I'd never even considered.....and don't really want to. SELLERS Atlanta Falcons (1–5) Tradable Assets: EDGE Vic Beasley, TE Austin Hooper Beasley and Hooper are two players on expiring contracts who could be valuable in the right system. I’m not rea
  3. Dan Quinn Mic’ing Up Defensive Players in Practice to Help Fix Communication Issues Mic’ing up players is often done for editorial purposes, but what about for educational purposes? The Falcons’ head coach is trying it out with his defense. By ROBERT KLEMKO August 15, 2019 Dan Quinn got the inspiration from an NFL Films clip: Buccaneers safety John Lynch, who was mic’d up during Super Bowl XXXVII against the Raiders, tips off fellow safety Dexter Jackson, then paces back towards his pre-snap position and yells across the field, “Dexter! Hey! Sluggo seam!” In the next shot, Jacks
  4. Sixty-two players and one intrepid reporter got a crash course in Dan Quinn’s style of football last weekend, as Atlanta immersed its draft picks, rookie free agents and other hopefuls in the intricacies of play calls and coverages—and, most importantly, the philosophy of the hard-driving Falcons coach. By ANDY BENOIT May 15, 2019 Rookie minicamp offers a coaching staff the first chance to see and work with its new players, before the veterans arrive for OTAs. The Falcons held theirs this past weekend and gave us an all-access look. (Editor’s note: The names of plays in this st
  5. THE FALCONS’ OFFENSE FINDS ITS WINGS Know who’s one of the best assistant coaches in the NFL right now? That’s right—Atlanta OC Steve Sarkisian, as you all expected during that Thursday night opener. The Falcons are fifth in the NFL in total offense and just 3.6 yards per game off the torrid pace that the Kyle Shanahan-fueled Atlanta attack of 2016 set. And they’ve gotten there with a similar approach to the one that Sarkisian’s predecessor deployed, which is to attack from every angle and at all times. Take the end of Sunday’s blowout win over the Redskins and their well-regar

I’d heard enough questions about Matt Ryan’s arm strength in the Thursday night opener, from inside the league and out, to compel me to ask the question of the Falcons quarterback on the phone after Atlanta’s 31-24 win over Carolina on Sunday. Was something wrong in Philly? “No, I was healthy,” Ryan responded. “I just didn’t play well enough, an
  7. https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/08/29/atlanta-falcons-2018-preview Atlanta’s Defense Is One Step From Greatness: 10 Thoughts on the 2018 Falcons As the NFL season approaches, Andy Benoit is previewing every NFL team in reverse order of last season’s finish. Up today: the Atlanta Falcons, who finished 10–6 and beat the Rams in the wild-card round before falling to the eventual-Super Bowl champion Eagles in the divisional round. 1. If not for allowing 31 points in their Monday night win over a Seahawks club that benefitted from Tyler Lockett’s great kickoff returns

Dan Quinn doesn’t want to make the soldier’s name public, because the soldier himself doesn’t want that. But even without the name attached, his story (which has been confirmed) is worth telling, especially on the week of Independence Day. It might be the best way to honor the soldier’s impact on Quinn’s Falcons.
  9. Without looking: How would yall grade this draft? https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/05/29/nfl-draft-grades-2015-jameis-winston-marcus-mariota ATLANTA FALCONS 1 (8) Vic Beasley, LB, Clemson 2 (42) Jalen Collins, DB, LSU 3 (73) Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana 4 (107) Justin Hardy, WR, East Carolina 5 (137) Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson 7 (225) Jake Rodgers, OT, Eastern Washington 7 (249) Akeem King, DB, San Jose State
  10. Meh, normally Benoit is one of the better and more informed writers, but I'm not sure where he is getting this notion that Quinn runs one of the purer 4-3 schemes. In base we have always used a shade 1-tech NT, which isn't traditional at all, along with often walking the SS down into the box. And in nickel, it's true we often run a more traditional 3-tech and 2i alignment inside, but we've still often dropped one of the 5 DB's into the box to show what looks like a 4-3 even in nickel. And we play mostly nickel these day, upwards of 70%. And by definition, you can't run a 3-4 front in nick

  13. 8. I think it was interesting to see that Pete Prisco of CBS Sports asked some Falcons the other day how they felt about the Patriots having 283 tiny diamonds on their Super Bowl rings this year. The meaning: 283, as in coming back from a 28-3 deficit to win Super Bowl 51. Prisco said he could tell the Falcons players didn’t like it. I say so what. If I’m the Patriots, 283 is a tremendous point of pride, noting the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. When I heard the Patriots had 283 diamonds on each ring, I didn’t take it in any way as a slap in the face to the Falcons. I took it only as
  14. Excerpt from Albert Breer's MMQB on the Falcons defense
  15. From Summer School to the Super Bowl for Brady, Ryan Matt Ryan and Tom Brady didn’t get to Houston by accident. Here’s the story of how offseason work with a couple baseball pitchers benefited both QBs. Plus items on Dan Quinn, the Indy mess and six draft storylines Matt Ryan Is Old School At Philly’s venerable Penn Charter, they remember Matt Ryan as a low-key, egalitarian leader for whom a team win, not stats or stature, was the priority. The Falcons QB has carried that ethos all the way to Super Bowl 51. MOBILE, Ala. — Back in July, I visited Tom House and Adam Dede
  16. Listened on my way to work this morning, and it was a pretty good segment. Talked about the offense, the support system in the front office coming in after the Vick scandal. There was a lot of interesting info there, I recommend a listen for any one interested.
  17. Andy Benoit ‏@Andy_Benoit 6h6 hours ago will tweet film notes on #Falcons O vs. #Broncos D for next little bit. Against #Broncos the #Falcons were very “base” driven. Toilolo and Tamme both played 44+ snaps, DiMarco 27. No. 3 WR Gabriel just 14. #Broncos Film: 2 things defined #Falcons 1st drive: inverted formations (WR’s inside, TE/RB outside) and pick route combinations. Successful #Falcons #Broncos Film: Coleman 48 yd catch was motion to slot empty with terrific natural rub from LOS TE Hooper to beat LB's man coverage. #Broncos #Falcons Film: Ta

Seems like it should be getting harder and harder to be a Shanahan detractor... http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2016/10/06/kyle-shanahan-nfl-coaching-carousel-list-notebook Thu Oct. 6, 2016 -- by Albert Breer Kyle Shanahan and the Evolution of a Young Coach Coaching is fun again for Kyle Shanahan, although for a much different reason than it was almost a decade ago when he called his first NFL play. “When I started in Houston, those first two years, it was so much fun,” the Falcons' offensive coordinator said, driving home Tuesday night. “We were third and fourth in the league
