Falcons Make Change at Fullback

The Falcons have made another roster move this week. This time they have cut Lousaka Polite and have re-signed Mike Cox. For a team that passes roughly 60% of the time, the Falcons sure have made some moves at FB this year. It started back in May when starter Ovie Mughelli became a salary cap casualty. In August, the Falcons put rookie Bradie Ewing on injured reserve and...

Roddy White Says He Doesn’t Like The City Of New Orleans

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver loves to run off at the mouth, sometimes without an apparent thought to what he’s even saying. His twitter feed @RoddyWhiteTV is pure comedy, and most of the time White’s not trying to be funny. White has started yapping again, and the masses in the Nola are not going to be [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links...

8-0 Falcons try to play down talk of perfection

The Atlanta Falcons are starting to get questions about perfection. The Falcons (8-0) have gotten off to the best start in franchise history, but lineman Tyson Clabo points out that they're still only halfway through the regular season, with a number of tough games still to come. That includes a trip to New Orleans on Sunday, plus a December game against the Super Bowl champion...

Falcons Are Now 8-0; Still No Respect

Its 11 am MST on a day after the Atlanta Falcons beat the disoriented Dallas Cowboys to go 8-0 for the first time in their franchise history, and the Falcons still aren’t getting any respect. And I’m not about to give them any respect either. At least not now. Just an “Atta Boy”! I will acknowledge that Matt Ryan has finally elevated his game to that next level, and those...

Michael Turner Runs Hard Against Cowboys

Falcons halfback Michael Turner rumbled his way to 102 yards rushing Sunday in a 19-13 win over the Cowboys.Fantasy Spin:Turner has had an up and down season but is still on pace to rush for over 1,000 yards. He's not one of the league's elite backs anymore but Turner is still a serviceable flex or RB2 option for fantasy owners.

The Coalter Report: Dallas vs. Falcons

What Went Right The defense once again was solid this week. Ware got pressure constantly and made sure to leave Matt Ryan’s face print onto the field before the game was over.  Ratliff showed signs of him old self and until his injury, he was walling off the middle to Michael Turner and charging into the pocket consistently.  McCray has shown that he may be a legitimate option...

Falcons' defense steps up to stay undefeated

To the right side of the Falcons' locker room, in the short corner, there is life. There is an energy, a cluster of defensive backs each talking over one another. They are an enthusiastic bunch, as players on winning football teams are wont to be, reveling in jokes made funnier via victory. The laughter grows louder with every win. It's been building for eight weeks. ...

Sunday Night Football: Falcons remain unbeaten with 19-13 win over Cowboys

NFL Midseason Report Card: Atlanta Falcons

When a team like the Falcons reach the midway point and the biggest question about them is why they don’t get more respect, then you’re having a pretty good season. It’s difficult to get off to an 8-0 start and still fly under the radar, but still, teams like Green Bay, Chicago and the 49ers get brought up as the best in the NFC before the Falcons do. Some point to their...

Falcons-Saints Preview

Much has been made of the Atlanta Falcons beating inferior opponents - often unimpressively - en route to a perfect record at the season's halfway point. They'll get another team with a losing record Sunday, but the New Orleans Saints appear to be on the rise. In what could be a high-scoring affair at the Superdome, the Falcons look to remain unbeaten when they face a Saints...
