A pick six is fun to watch, but it’s even funner when a 6-foot-3, 255 pound monster takes one to the house. Big Man Running is one of my favorite things to watch in the NFL. Osi Umenyiora makes Falcons fans happy when he picks off Rams QB Sam Bradford and takes it back for six points. Check it out! This is a good one, but Vince Wilfork’s pick and run was probably one of my favorite...

Biermann tore his right Achilles tendon and Ewing separated his left shoulder in Sunday's 31-24 win over the St. Louis Rams. Coach Mike Smith said Monday each will be placed on the reserve injured list.

Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore was tasked with stopping Rams TE Mike McNeill and did so WITH AUTHORITY, dropping McNeill with a spinebuster. The only way it would’ve been cooler is if he’d turned around before dropping him. Actually, it also would’ve been cooler if he’d let McNeill fall a little farther down his back, hooked his head and sat down with White Noise...
Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore is ready for Sunday nights WWE PPV Night of Champions. So much so that he gave the ole spinebuster to St. Louis Rams tight end Mike McNeil.
Some will say this is just a tackle but to anyone who has watched wrestling it comes across an awful lot like a spine buster.

Falcons receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones are active against the Rams after being listed as questionable.

Roddy White was relegated to decoy duties last Sunday against the Saints due to a high-ankle injury, and the offensive line is young, vulnerable, and inexperienced. New Orleans pressured Matt Ryan relentlessly last week and the strength of St. Louis’ defense is its front four. Thus, Falcons OC...

The Atlanta Falcons may have gotten their first win of the season in the home opener against the St. Louis Rams, but it was a costly victory indeed.
The in-game injuries piled up during the course of play, with starting running back Steven Jackson leaving early on with a thigh bruise, defensive end Cliff Matthews getting banged up, and cornerback Asante Samuel also leaving early on. But two
Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore channeled his inner wrestler on this vicious body slam of St Louis Rams tight end Mike McNeill.
It looked like it would be Steven Jackson's day when he scored on an 8-yard catch against his former St. Louis teammates to cap the Falcons' opening drive.
Instead, the touchdown was the end of Jackson's day. The running back left with a thigh injury, the first in a long string of injuries for Atlanta that forced coach Mike Smith and his staff to recast their plans....
Steven Jackson’s first-quarter touchdown got Atlanta off to a good start but that’s where his day ended.
Jackson who signed with the Falcons via free agency last March capped Atlanta’s first possession with an eight-yard TD reception. That proved to be Jackson’s last play of the game because of a thigh injury.
It’s not the first time Jackson has had soft tissue injuries...
