All season, all we heard from NFL talking heads was that they were a paper tiger. They hadn’t beaten anyone convincingly enough to think that they were a threat to anyone in the playoffs; even with home field advantage. But when forced to put their money where their mouth is, the Falcons ended up about ten yards shy of the Super Bowl. All of this against a team that many believe was vastly superior to them.
In a season that saw the Falcons improve in almost every way, it all ended with a heartbreaking loss in the Georgia Dome in the NFC championship game. There were bumps in the road, to be sure, but I think many will agree that Atlanta exceeded expectation in 2012 and we’ll take a closer look at both sides of the ball now.
Easily the most improved portion of the Falcons this season from 2011 was on the offensive side of the ball. I know it’s beating a dead horse to bring it up as I always do, but my prediction of it being addition by subtraction after dumping offensive coo...

The Falcons need a pass rush if they want to get past the 49ers, but where do they go with their pick?
Here is my first look at the NFL Draft. There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year. The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft.
I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers?
1. Chiefs - Bjoern...
Team needs and impending free agents for the Atlanta Falcons.
The season might be over for the Atlanta Falcons, but Julio Jones is just getting started. Jones continues to show it was worth giving up five NFL Draft picks to move up and select the former Alabama star. In his second season with the Atlanta Falcons he has been voted to the NFC Pro-Bowl after finishing with 1,198 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns on the season. Roddy White and...
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wonders whether or not CB Brent Grimes still has a role in the Falcons’ secondary next season.
Ledbetter notes that Atlanta already has a lot of cash tied up in their secondary, which could result in them allowing Grimes to leave via free agency.
Safety William Moore will be an unrestricted free agent as well, so they may...
Check out these Atlanta Falcons fans beating the crap out of one 49ers fan after their home loss last weekend. Looks like a pretty even fight right? Only about 15 on 1. Good odds for any Falcons fan. Video is probably NSFW considering how bad this dude is getting beat.

Darnell Dockett is a funny dude, first he hollers at the Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb on twitter. When McCarron replied, Dockett broke it down hood style.
Dockett let loose on the college kid talking to Bickley & MJ on XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix:
“If I really wanted to get his girl there’s a bunch of different ways I’d have went...

It's been four days since the Falcons came up short in the cursed Georgia Dome. It was a heartbreaking defeat and it will be tough to bring myself to watch the 49ers and the Ravens play two Sunday's from now in the spectacle that is the Super Bowl. The 2012 season has come to an end with the Falcons finishing as one of the four finest teams in the league but they don'...
