    Head coach Mike Smith said during his weekly day-after press conference that the injury outlook this week looks much better than it has in past weeks, even after Julio Jones, Asante Samuel and Peria Jerry all went out with injuries during Sunday’s win over the Cardinals.

    2 years ago

    The situation was so close to identical, it was eerie. Facing a game-winning situation from the 1-yard line, the Falcons lined up Sunday just the way they had a week before with the game on the line. The play call was the same — Michael Turner up left guard. Last week, it was stuffed. On [...]

  • Ryan Cool When Game Heated Up

    2 years ago

    Matt Ryan earned the nickname Matty Ice for a reason. It was his cool, calm demeanor in the face of ridiculous adversity that gave him the moniker that would follow him to the NFL.

    No, this isn’t a repurpose of last week’s post. Wide receiver Julio Jones is questionable to return to Sunday’s game against the Cardinals with an ankle injury. No word yet on if it’s the same ankle that kept him out of practice all week, but we’ll have an update when available.

  • Falcons Fall Victim to Unusual Rule

    2 years ago

    Head coach Mike Smith found out about a little-known rule the hard way during the second half Sunday.
