  • Falcons Rookies Have Mettle Tested in Loss

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Any expert, coach and veteran player will say that preseason results are meaningless. For rookies, however, the losses sting just as much as they would if they counted. After Thursday night’s loss, it was unanimous amongst the Falcons’ youth: They can’t make the mistakes they made against the Ravens. “This was a lot of guys’ [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    After Thursday night’s 31-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the Falcons’ first preseason game of 2012, rookie defensive tackle Travian Robertson looked as if the weight of the game was still on his shoulders. Obviously disappointed by the loss, Robertson might as well have thrown a game-ending interception or fumbled at the goal line. [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Quarterback Matt Ryan may have only been in the Falcons’ first preseason game for a short time, but everything about his presence Thursday night spells exciting things for the future of the first-team offense when he’s in control. Ryan played just more than a quarter and finished 9-of-13 for 155 yards and a touchdown with [...]

  • Falcons Dominate Total Yards in First Quarter

    2 years, 3 months ago

    During the first preseason game, the first quarter is the most important. It’s when both teams have their starters on the field the longest and you really get a sense of where each team stands during that time. If that’s the case, the Falcons are sitting in very good position. After one quarter of play, [...]

    With wide receiver and first-string punt returner Harry Douglas sidelined during tonight’s game, cornerback Dominique Franks assumed the returning duties in the punt game and has made quite the impression so far.

  • QB Dominique Davis Has Something to Prove

    2 years, 3 months ago

    When the odds are added up, it should be no surprise that Dominique Davis has been going through camp with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. Being an undrafted free agent is difficult enough when it comes to making an NFL squad, but cracking a squad as an unknown at the quarterback position [...]

    With the first preseason game of the 2012 football year set to get underway Thursday at the Georgia Dome against the Baltimore Ravens, the Falcons released their first unofficial depth chart.

  • Antone Smith a Darkhorse for Return Responsibilities?

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Running back Antone Smith laughs when he thinks back on all his punt and kick return experience. Probably because there isn’t much of it. Save for two games during his freshman year at Florida State, the fourth-year Falcon hasn’t exactly been setting the world on fire with his return game. But that could all change [...]

  • Robert James Hoping to Make His Mark in 2012

    2 years, 3 months ago

    To linebacker Robert James, this year feels like a last chance of sorts.
