With Michael Vick likely retiring with Falcons, share your memories of #7

There are plenty to choose from.

It’s not official quite yet, but I doubt Michael Vick would mention his impending retirement as a member of the Atlanta Falcons if he didn’t think it was gonna happen. That means it’s time to think back to his career in the same way we did for Roddy White and likely will for Jonathan Babineaux soon enough.

I polled Twitter to see everyone’s favorite memories of Vick’s time in Atlanta. As you’ll see, he remains a divisive player, but you guys...

Report: Michael Vick will retire as an Atlanta Falcon

The athletic Falcons legend is hanging it up, and he'll do it with the team that drafted him.

Michael Vick was a #1 overall pick, one of the most electrifying quarterbacks in NFL history, and a deeply divisive figure. He was also a Falcon for a long time, and now it appears he'll retire as one.

Per a conversation with CBS Atlanta, Vick plans to sign a one-day contract to retire with the Falcons.

Who will lead the Falcons in receiving touchdowns?

Will it be Julio Jones, for a change, or someone else?

The Atlanta Falcons have oodles of receiving options. Gobs of receiving options. A plethora of receiving options. The question today is which one will lead the team in touchdowns.

This isn’t as straightforward a question as it would be on some teams. Julio Jones is arguably the best receiver in the NFL, but he’s never snagged a ton of touchdowns, even during his most dominant campaigns. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman score...

A Falcons fan’s guide to not putting too much stock into OTAs

We’re getting some football practice in our lives again, but you won’t want to put all your hopes and dreams into it.

We’re officially a few days away from the team’s first organized team activities session on May 30, which means we’re edging closer to training camp. I really can’t wait for training camp.

With the arrival of OTAs comes the arrival of the hand-wringing. As Falcons fans, we’ve had a first class seat to this, with every other team in the NFL having started their...

The three biggest threats to the Falcons in the NFC

The Packers, Seahawks, and Cowboys all figure to be relevant in the playoffs again.

Trying to figure out which teams are going to be good in any given year is a little bit of a fool’s errand. There’s so much variance in play from year-to-year that you can really only point to the best rosters and most reliable performers and hope for the best.

So let’s acknowledge up front that predicting the three teams who are most likely to spar with the Falcons in the NFC, particularly the...

Falcons seek improvement from roster with “point of attack” tapes

An already great team is being asked with improving further.

It got lost in the shuffle a little bit during Dan Quinn’s media tour earlier in the week—talking about 2 Chainz and Ric Flair will ensure that—but Quinn said something very cool about one of the ways the team is looking to get improvement out of its players, and I didn’t want it to pass without comment.

The Falcons nearly made it to the top of the heap a season ago, and while fending off complacency is a big deal,...

Famliarity and continuity are Steve Sarkisian’s priorities running the Falcons offense

The team doesn’t want Sark to make major changes, so it’s a safe bet he won’t. The Falcons will finally hit the field soon for organized team activities soon after losing a week due to some horse hockey excessive contact penalty imposed by the league. When they do, Steve Sarkisian will begin the process of implementing his offense. As Thomas Dimitroff has said repeatedly, don’t expect that offense to look drastically different than the one Kyle Shanahan rolled out. It will likely...

Dirk Koetter chastises own Twitter account to avoid giving Falcons bulletin board material

He’s mad offline. Nearly everyone outside of the Carolinas and Louisiana expects the Buccaneers to be the stiffest competition for the Falcons in the NFC South this year. Dirk Koetter and Mike Smith both had stints with Atlanta, of course, and are old school coaches who stress respect. It’s not overly surprising, then, that Koetter did not take well to his team’s Twitter account making a tired 28-3 joke about the Falcons. The whole kerfluffle started with the Falcons playfully...

On Kyle Shanahan’s complex legacy with the Atlanta Falcons

Kyle Shanahan put the pieces together for the Falcons, and we recognize that.

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. Unlike previous coordinators, Kyle Shanahan was on the verge of leaving Atlanta on a high note. He orchestrated one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history. From Matt Ryan earning the NFL’s most prestigious award to nearly every skill position player contributing to their success, Shanahan cemented his status as one of the best offensive minds in the league.

Thomas Dimitroff reflects on trading up for Julio Jones

When Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff gave up two first-round picks, a second-round pick and two fourth-round picks to get the sixth overall pick in the NFL draft, plenty of people thought he was crazy. Even Bill Belichick advised Dimitroff not to give up that kind of draft capital for one player. So why did…
