  • Gonzalez: ‘The Confidence Hasn’t Changed’

    2 years, 3 months ago

    There will be no panicking. There will be no whining. As far as Tony Gonzalez is concerned, the only thing that changed Sunday was that the Falcons now have a straight number in the loss column. A hard-fought 31-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome after going unbeaten up to that point [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Wide receiver Julio Jones left Sunday’s game in the first half with a leg injury and is questionable to return. He went into the locker room for part of the half and then returned to the sideline in uniform, but didn’t show many signs of coming back into the game. UPDATE: Jones returned in the [...]

  • Mike Johnson Scores Falcons’ First TD

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Here’s looking at you, big man. Nice touchdown. I’ve been on Mike Johnson all year about how, when he’s eligible, he’ll never see another pass come his way after Joe Hawley struggled earlier this season when Matt Ryan looked his way. I’m find with admitting I was wrong after Sunday’s touchdown reception — yes, touchdown [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    It took only about two minutes into Sunday’s game before Tony Gonzalez made more history. The Falcons tight end caught the 1,200th reception of his career, becoming only the second player in NFL history to do so. The reception was a 19-yarder from Matt Ryan. Jerry Rice was the first to eclipse 1,200 receptions and [...]

  • Leap of Faith in Konz Not Far

    2 years, 3 months ago

    In Konz, They Trust Trust might be the most important thing between offensive linemen in the NFL. It’s more important than that extra rep on the bench press or that 20 extra minutes of film study. Gelling as a line is all about trust, and perhaps it’s one of the hardest things to attain. It’s [...]

    For the second week in a row, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon will be held out of a game with an ankle injury, head coach Mike Smith said Thursday.

  • Cox Happy to be Back with Falcons

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Yep. Mike Cox will bleed for the Falcons. There were plenty of battles during training camp that surely affected the Falcons’ 8-0 start to the 2012 season. But the battle no one talked about during training camp came at a position no one expected to be a battle at all. With former fullback Ovie Mughelli [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Breaking news: Roddy White doesn’t like the Saints. Here’s a look at what the Falcons were saying the locker room Wednesday: RB Michael Turner on winning with the run or the pass: “No, it doesn’t matter, as long as we win the game. We don’t care how many points we win by, how close the [...]
