    2 years, 3 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, 4 months ago

    Last year was a whirlwind for Julio Jones.

That affected him on plenty of [...]

    2 years, 4 months ago

    Wide receiver Roddy White is about as good a teammate as there is in the NFL.
