    2 years, 2 months ago

    When head coach Mike Smith stood in front of his team Thursday morning, he didn’t do much talking. Instead, he let former Super Bowl champions do it for him.

    You might expect Roddy White or Julio Jones to be at the top of all wide receiver categories for the Falcons, but what you might not expect is the Falcons’ third wide receiver trumping the two stars in a big category.

  • Falcons Leaning on Leadership this Week

    2 years, 2 months ago

    It’s an easy week to get unfocused. Football players are short-sighted on purpose, especially those under head coach Mike Smith. They work in seven-day bits and reset after those seven days are up. Usually at the end of those seven days, there’s a game to be played. It’s where the focus lies from Monday all [...]

    The Falcons have been in this situation before. They’ve been 13-3 heading into the postseason with the NFC’s No. 1 seed. We remember how that turned out. Head coach Mike Smith has been intent on making the bye week before the divisional round playoff game different than it was in 2010. That year, Smith gave [...]

    Quarterback Matt Ryan has broken a bunch of Falcons records already this season, and he added a big one Sunday.

Ryan came into Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay tied [...]

    More bad news in a game that could use less of it on the injury front. Defensive end John Abraham was carted from the sideline in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. The injury came when he was rushing Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman and it appeared like he was bent backward over his ankle. [...]

  • Robinson Out of Sunday’s Game with Head Injury

    2 years, 2 months ago

    In a game where the biggest key for the Falcons was to stay healthy, they’ve suffered their first injury of the day. Cornerback Dunta Robinson delivered a hit in the first quarter that shook him up a bit. He walked off the field under his own power, but was taken to the locker room soon [...]
