  • Smith Confident Spoon, Nic Will Return for Minicamp

    1 year, 8 months ago

    Head coach Mike Smith was asked about linebackers Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas on Tuesday, as the two veterans have spent OTAs conspicuously on the sideline while the team works on the field, and the news sounds good. The two linebackers have been held out with injuries, but Smith said Tuesday that he thinks the [...]

    1 year, 8 months ago

    Head coach Mike Smith gave a few updates about a couple of rookies after Tuesday’s OTAs session in Flowery Branch. Tuesday, first of all, saw the return of rookie cornerback and first-round pick Desmond Trufant after he finished his degree at Washington. Smith said fourth-round TE Levine Toilolo was finishing his degree at Stanford on [...]

  • Konz, Hawley Set for Center Battle

    1 year, 8 months ago

    Training camp is usually when we start thinking about position battles, but when a void is created by a longstanding veteran’s retirement, it seems appropriate to bring up even during offseason training activities. The center position, long an afterthought because of the steadiness and reliability of Todd McClure for 12 seasons, is now up for [...]

  • Roddy Right Back at OTAs

    1 year, 8 months ago

    Offseason training activities are strictly a voluntary affair, although you’d find that a very, very good portion of the Falcons roster shows up for the workouts. Last week, wide receiver Roddy White wasn’t on-hand for the Wednesday session open to the media, but he was back this Wednesday, working with his teammates. “It’s great to [...]

  • Jackson Having Fun Learning to Be a Falcon

    1 year, 8 months ago

    It must be strange being a nine-year veteran and a new kid on the block at the exact same time. Steven Jackson — the Pro Bowl running back the Falcons added during the offseason — has spent months learning the playbook and the Falcons way of doing things, but in the second week of offseason [...]

  • Playoff Win Named No. 2 Best Game of ’12

    1 year, 9 months ago

    Many Falcons fans will remember this game as one of the best in franchise history, let alone of 2012, but NFL.com has named the Falcons’ thrilling 30-28 divisional round win over the Seattle Seahawks the No. 2 best game of 2012. It was a game similar to many others for the Falcons — a big [...]

  • Smith: Fullback Ewing at 100 Percent

    1 year, 9 months ago

    Head coach Mike Smith updated a variety of areas during his time in front of the media Wednesday, and one of the notes he mentioned was the progression of second-year fullback Bradie Ewing. A fifth-round selection by the Falcons during the 2012 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin, Ewing had a promising training camp before injuring [...]

  • Smith Lends Insight into Gonzalez’s Decision

    1 year, 11 months ago

    With the percentage of return dwindling eventually down to just 3, there wasn’t a whole lot of hope that tight end Tony Gonzalez would return to the Falcons for one more ride after coming up just short of the Super Bowl in 2012. Smith — a positive person by nature — wouldn’t allow the 97 [...]

  • Smith to be Inducted into ETSU Hall of Fame

    2 years ago

    Head coach Mike Smith’s extremely successful career with the Falcons has been well documented. He’s already the winningest coach in franchise history. He’s led the team to five consecutive winning seasons for the first time in franchise history. He’s produced four playoff appearances in five years. The list goes on. Turns out, the seeds of [...]
