  • 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 [...]

    Wide receiver Julio Jones left Sunday’s game in the first half with a leg injury and is questionable to return.

    2 years, 3 months ago

    It took only about two minutes into Sunday’s game before Tony Gonzalez made more history.

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Falcons fans across the country have asked the same question over and over: Where’s the love, man?

Even if there was a slew of [...]

  • Falcons Find Answers With Run Defense

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Through the first six weeks of the season, the answer to how to keep up with the Falcons seemed fairly simple: To run with the Falcons, you, too, must run. After the past two games, it might not be so simple anymore. After giving up 100 yards rushing in each of the previous six games, [...]

  • Falcons Make Good on First Offensive Drive

    2 years, 5 months ago

    It was a beautiful sight and perhaps a sign of what Falcons fans can expect from their offense in 2012. With 12 plays and 80 yards, Matt Ryan found Julio Jones alone in the end zone to his right for the first Falcons touchdown of 2012 to give the Falcons a 7-0 lead. Since 2008, [...]

    2 years, 6 months ago

    There were several moments during Friday night’s preseason game against Miami that would have had fans jumping out of their seats during the regular season.
