Finding some juice for a largely empty Falcons pass rush

Another year of hoping for the Falcons’ pass rush to be somewhat threatening, another year of being underwhelming and mostly anonymous. Could that possibly change going into the final stretch of the season?

Hope isn’t a strategy. It’s something people use to create optimism, in creating or strengthening the belief that things will change for the better in the future. That’s the best way to describe the Falcons’ plan to...

Falcons offense vs. Steelers defense: The challenge up front, the opportunity through the air

Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images

This would be an excellent game for the passing attack to take flight.

The Steelers present a fairly unique challenge and opportunity for our Falcons. The challenge comes from a talented group of pass rushers up front—one of the most talented they’ve faced this year, if not the most talented—and a secondary that has punished mistakes by picking off passes all year long, not to mention yet another quality run defense. The opportunity comes from...

Thomas Dimitroff’s parting gift to Falcons might be pair of All-Pros

Thomas Dimitroff’s tenure wasn’t all bad; in fact, there were extremely bright moments, like the free agent signings of Tony Gonzalez, Alex Mack, Michael Turner, etc.

No Falcons are currently on pace to make the Pro Bowl

It’s time to vote.

The Atlanta Falcons have had an up-and-down, twisty-turny season, one that has been at times exhilarating and at times supremely frustrating. It has also been a season in which a total team effort has been emphasized over and over again by the coaching staff and players themselves.

With injuries robbing A.J. Terrell and Cordarrelle Patterson of multiple weeks, it has also been a season where some of the team’s brightest...

This Week’s Big Question: Can the Falcons make the final 4 games matter? 

Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images

The Falcons’ bye week is mercifully almost here. How they handle it could depend on Sunday.

The Falcons haven’t been able to breathe easy all season.

Nine of their 12 games have been decided by one score; five of those were decided by three points or fewer. They’ve had two opportunities to climb above .500 for the first time since 2017, and they’ve come up short both times.

Now, after a last-minute loss to the Commanders, the Falcons find...

Big games for Foye Oluokun and Hayden Hurst highlight the week.

In Week 12, former Falcons tight ends and defenders ruled the day. Here’s a closer look at how former fan favorites and “oh yeah I remember that guy” players alike did this past week.

QB Matt Ryan

This was not a great game for Ryan, despite another surprisingly effective scramble. Ryan threw an ugly interception in the early going as the Colts fell behind, and while he was able...

Falcons rookie report: Tyler Allgeier bowls them over on a quiet Week 12

Photo by Mark Goldman/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

An injury and some slow days make for a quiet rookie report.

Playing in the rain against Washington, the Falcons had a mostly forgettable day. They scored just one touchdown and 13 points total, holding the Commanders to 19 points but allowing them to effectively hold the ball for three quarters.

How did the rookies fare in that mess? Unfortunately, injury hit one of the team’s most promising young players, but others did have an...
