  • Jackson, Run Game Heat Up Against Ravens

    1 year, 6 months ago

    The Falcons have shifted in recent years to throwing the ball more, what with Pro Bowl wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones, and future Hall-of-Famer Tony Gonzalez in the mix offensively.

  • Davis Shows Improvement in Second Game

    1 year, 6 months ago

    Last season, the Falcons came out of the preseason with a lot confidence in then-rookie quarterback Dominique Davis — an undrafted product of East Carolina by way of Boston College.

    1 year, 6 months ago

    Offensive lineman Phillipkeith Manley was a relative unknown last year when he came to the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo, but as last year’s camp wore on, it became obvious that Manley would be the kind of player the team would want to keep around.
