- Sphincter dome
- 100-yard bar
- Rumble pak seats
- Animatronic gospel choir
- Staging area for construction of Tom Dimitroff’s Elysium
Fan forecast, by SB Nation’s Jason Kirk:
After five years of franchise-altering success, the Falcons are going all in, and I’m pretty scared about that.
The Mike Smith/Thomas Dimitroff administration, by a laughably far distance the greatest regime in team history, has to this point been distinguished by winning a bunch of games, losing some playoff games, pulling every win out of one ass or another, never committing penalties, and trading all of Paulding County for Julio Jones.

Brian Banks, linebacker
When the Falcons signed him, it was one of the feel-good stories of the offseason. Banks spent time in jail for a crime of which he was falsely accused and later exonerated...
It appears that Thomas Dimitroff finally got that shipment of pens this morning because he made two signings before I even had lunch. Yes, after much hullabaloo, Atlanta signed a guy tasked with helping lock down our consistently inconsistent secondary.

The Atlanta Falcons tried four times to win a playoff game under coach Mike Smith before reaching the NFC championship game last season.
Anything shy of the Super Bowl will be a big disappointment this year.

Falcons training camp kicks off on Thursday July 25th and all still seems to be quiet on the contract front with Matt Ryan. Will the Falcons get a deal done before the season or will they go the Joe Flacco route and wait until after the season? It's a big question.

ATLANTA In the spirit of Phil Mickelson's first Open Championship golf title ('Lefty' to his fans), the Atlanta Falcons will start training camp on Thursday with the majority of talent and depth slanted to the left side for both offense and defense.
The right side with the notable exception of defensive end Osi Umenyiora stands out as the weaker half. Right tackle...

Mike Jurecki is “hearing” that free agent DE/OLB John Abraham is visiting with the Cardinals on Wednesday.
Abraham, 35, remains one of the best available free agents. Although he’s coming off of a season in which he totaled 10 sacks for the Falcons defense, there has been very little buzz surrounding him in the past few months.
Previous reports indicated that Abraham’s asking...
