    2 years, 3 months ago

    The situation was so close to identical, it was eerie. Facing a game-winning situation from the 1-yard line, the Falcons lined up Sunday just the way they had a week before with the game on the line. The play call was the same — Michael Turner up left guard. Last week, it was stuffed. On [...]

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Matt Ryan earned the nickname Matty Ice for a reason. It was his cool, calm demeanor in the face of ridiculous adversity that gave him the moniker that would follow him to the NFL. Perhaps it should be no surprise then that, during a game that saw him throw five interceptions, Ryan came into the [...]

  • 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

    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.

    Atlanta would savor this Philly win for 24 long years If you were to ask several Falcons on the current roster where they were the last time Atlanta earned a win in the City of Brotherly Love, what kind of answer would you expect? “I was 3 years old,” safety Thomas DeCoud said Monday. “I [...]

    2 years, 6 months ago

    Coming into minicamp this year, the Falcons offensive linemen hadn’t had too much exposure to the screen game. Some hadn’t run the play since college. Others had to re-familiarize themselves with the techniques and responsibilities.
