  1. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/takeaways-falcons-defense-impresses-again-in-second-scrimmage The Falcons held their second scrimmage of AT&T Atlanta Falcons Training Camp on Monday, and similar to the team's first scrimmage, the defense was the standout unit. All three levels of Atlanta's defense – across both the starters and backup squads – had moments of brilliance. The Falcons' defensive line, led by Grady Jarrett, knifed into the backfield against the run and didn't give up much room on the ground. There were also so
  2. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/takeaways-takk-mckinley-explains-how-wake-up-call-is-motivating-him The Falcons returned to the field for their fourth practice of AT&T Atlanta Falcons Training Camp, but the biggest takeaway didn't occur until well after the final whistle sounded. For the first time after Atlanta declined to pick up his fifth-year option, defensive end Takk McKinley addressed the media. He was open and forthright, giving thoughtful answers to nearly every question, and it's clear McKinley has a new perspective on the game and his
  3. Without preseason games the Falcons are relying on intra-squad scrimmages to get them prepared for the season, and they held their first one on Thursday, the third day of AT&T Atlanta Falcons Training Camp. After splitting into their usual position units for the first half of practice, the Falcons' offensive and defensive units gathered on opposite sidelines for the scrimmage. Starters competed against starters, while the second- and third-strings groups were mixed in to compete against one another. Overall, it was a strong showing for the defense. The starting defense did not gi
  4. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/dan-quinn-explains-falcons-plan-if-he-tests-positive-for-covid-19 As the world continues to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, NFL teams must develop contingency plans for any conceivable scenario that could unfold. In terms of importance, a backup plan in case a team's head coach tests positive is right there near the top. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson are the only two head coaches to test positive thus far, but they show that it isn't just players who are at risk of contracting the virus.
  5. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/early-bird-report-todd-gurley-is-still-among-nfl-s-most-explosive-runners There's been a lot of talk this offseason about Todd Gurley’s health and how much the Falcons will be able to get out of the former All-Pro running back, but there are a few stats from last season that indicate he still has a bit left in the tank. Using advanced metrics, NFL.com writer Nick Shook ranked the 10 most explosive runners in the NFL last season. He used a variety of criteria for this list, looking at the total number of 10-plus-yard runs a player had, the perce
  6. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/dirk-koetter-on-russell-gage-i-think-we-will-see-a-jump-in-his-game The Atlanta Falcons traded trusted veteran slot receiver Mohamed Sanu in late October of the 2019 season opening up a path for second-year receiver Russell Gage to emerge as one of the pleasant surprises of the year. Showcasing some polished route-running and impressive speed, Gage made some tough catches last season when the opportunities arose. That experience should greatly benefit him heading into his third year with Atlanta, and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter thinks Gage's
  7. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/why-the-lsu-game-endeared-a-j-terrell-to-raheem-morris-the-most One game shouldn't overshadow an entire career, but A.J. Terrell's performance against Ja'Marr Chase in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game had a massive impact on the public's perception of him. It also had a pretty big impact on Falcons defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, who knows a thing or two about coaching cornerbacks at the highest level. But while public opinion soured on Terrell because of his play against LSU, Morris came away with an entirely dif
  8. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/how-each-falcons-2020-opponent-fared-offensively-defensively-in-2019 The Atlanta Falcons face one of the hardest schedules in 2020, regardless of how you measure it. Whether basing strength of schedule on last year's win totals or Vegas win projections for 2020, the Falcons will be going up against a high level of talent in the fall. Now that the order of the Falcons' schedule has been revealed, let's take a closer look at the offensive and defensive talent they will face each week. Week 1 vs Seattle Seahawks (2019 record: 11-5) 2019
  9. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/marlon-davidson-s-versatility-makes-him-a-perfect-fit-with-falcons The Atlanta Falcons sought to improve their pass rush and interior defensive line depth in this year's NFL Draft, and they did both by drafting one single player. Former Auburn defensive lineman Marlon Davidson is one of the most unique players entering the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 303-pound Davidson played defensive end for the Tigers, despite his size, and was also sturdy enough to shift over to defensive tackle. Even while he was out on the edge, Davidson played the game like a pe
  10. CB Kendall Sheffield reminds me of Panthers CB Donte Jackson in that both of them are track stars who happens to play football. Both uses their speed to stay in the hip pocket of the receiver they are covering. Jackson went in the 2nd round of last year draft and I believe Sheffield would have gone anywhere from the 2nd to the 3rd if he didn't injury himself at the combine. This is what was said about Jackson pre-draft.
  11. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/cowboys-kris-richard-seahawks-bobby-wagner-among-those-heaping-praise-on-dan-qui ORLANDO, Fla. – To those he worked with prior to his arrival in Atlanta, Dan Quinn is more than just a football coach. He’s a leader, a teacher and someone who respects those around him enough to let them inform his decision making. Those who have spent time working with him still hold Quinn in high regard, as was apparent during this year’s Pro Bowl. Generally, when a member of the media approaches a player or a coach he or she is met with a cautious f
  12. https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/falcons-rookie-foye-oluokun-has-one-mission-entering-his-first-preseason-game FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – When Falcons rookie linebacker Foyesade Oluokun steps onto the field at MetLife Stadium on Friday night for Atlanta’s first preseason game against the New York Jets, he will have one goal in mind. “To show how much I’ve improved since I’ve gotten here,” Oluokun said. “And to go against another team will be nice, because we get to go full-out, tackles and everything. I’m excited for it. I think I’ll keep a level head, I don’t think the lights o
