  • Young DEs Make Big Second-Half Play

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Defensive end Lawrence Sidbury is trying to make himself stand out this preseason at a crowded position, yet his night started with a couple of miscuses. Two defensive offsides calls on the young DE had his third preseason game of 2012 off to a rough start. But Sidbury soon made up for it near the [...]

  • Matt Ryan Has Another Strong Preseason Performance

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Matt Ryan continued his preseason excellence Friday night with another strong performance, this time in the most important of the preseason games when he saw the most time of the exhibition season. Ryan was pulled in the third quarter after going 18-of-26 for 220 yards, one touchdown and a QB rating of 107.9. For the [...]

  • Matt Bryant Provides First-Half Insurance

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Kicker Matt Bryant has the leg that doesn’t seem to weaken. With the Falcons offense struggling during the first half Friday, Bryant provided the insurance, knocking through three field goals to give the Falcons the 9-3 lead heading into halftime. All of Bryant’s kicks Friday were from 40-plus yards out, and his final before the [...]

  • Michael Turner Continues to Show Receiving Skills

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Get used to watching Michael Turner doing his best Roddy White impression. It certainly seems like his pass-catching abilities — perhaps the best kept secret in the NFL — are going to be on display more and more. Through two quarters Friday night, Turner has caught three passes for 36 yards. While it may not [...]

  • Dominique Davis Shows Bright Potential vs. Bengals

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Dominique Davis’ brother once told him that he can’t focus on other people’s success. He has to instead focus on his own first. That’s the mentality he’s taken into a quarterback battle that has quickly and interestingly heated up in the first two preseason games, and it seems to be paying off for the undrafted [...]

  • Rookie TE LaMark Brown Has Redeeming Performance

    2 years, 3 months ago

    The big lights of the NFL can be blinding, especially for an undrafted rookie. So when he had the chance to make a play last week and instead had a pass go off his fingertips and into the hands of a defender for an interception, rookie TE LaMark Brown knew that he had to find [...]

  • Michael Turner Shows Up in Passing Game

    2 years, 3 months ago

    When did you ever think running back Michael Turner would have more yards receiving than rushing? Well, it’s happened. Turner got involved in the passing game quite a bit — well, at least by his standards — during Thursday’s preseason game against the Bengals at the Georgia Dome. Turner caught three passes for 14 yards [...]

  • Defensive Focus Shows in First Quarter

    2 years, 3 months ago

    If you had the chance to visit Russell Athletic Atlanta Falcons Training Camp this year, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. If not, allow me to proceed. The Falcons, under defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, have put a premium on causing and recovering turnovers. So much so, in fact, that the defense is instructed to [...]

  • Julio Jones, AJ Green Provide Tough Tests for Tonight’s Defenses

    2 years, 3 months ago

    The starters will be on a snap count tonight, as head coach Mike Smith said earlier this week, but until they reach that number, there are some interesting matchups that will occur and could provide a test for both teams. The Falcons will have to handle Bengals wide receiver AJ Green while Cincinnati will be [...]

  • Smith: Dent Ruled Out for Thursday; Douglas to Play

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Head coach Mike Smith said Monday that linebacker Akeem Dent, who suffered a concussion during last week’s game against Baltimore, will not play against the Cincinnati Bengals this Thursday, but added that the second-year player is feeling much better. Wide receiver Harry Douglas, who sat out of last week’s game due to an injury from [...]
