    2 years, 3 months ago

    During the game’s most crucial punt return Sunday, the Falcons’ go-to returner was on the sideline.

    Head coach Mike Smith said during his Monday news conference that he’s confident that he’ll get linebacker Sean Weatherspoon back into the mix on the field this week.

  • Falcons Intent on Learning From Loss

    2 years, 3 months ago

    The day after a win tends to be pretty quiet around Flowery Branch as players are given the day off, even though a good majority of them do decide to come in and work out. The day after a loss is even quieter, even though the entire team is in the building. Suffering their first [...]

    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.

  • Mike Johnson Scores Falcons’ First TD

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Here’s looking at you, big man. Nice touchdown. I’ve been on Mike Johnson all year about how, when he’s eligible, he’ll never see another pass come his way after Joe Hawley struggled earlier this season when Matt Ryan looked his way.

  • Leap of Faith in Konz Not Far

    2 years, 3 months ago

    In Konz, They Trust Trust might be the most important thing between offensive linemen in the NFL. It’s more important than that extra rep on the bench press or that 20 extra minutes of film study. Gelling as a line is all about trust, and perhaps it’s one of the hardest things to attain. It’s [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago
