Well, you might be surprised that it has a lot to do with psychology. The theory known as social attention holding potential explains why the Atlanta Falcons get no respect.

Week 13 power ranks: Atlanta Falcons earn their respect but questions remain, starting with the run game

The Atlanta/New Orleans tilt may not change our ranks a great deal, but it should change our collective opinion of the Falcons.

They've earned our respect, but, I still have to ask: can the...

Falcons have chance to make up for loss to Saints

Some Atlanta players seem uncertain about who gave the Falcons' their lone loss of the season. Did the Saints beat Atlanta, or did the Falcons beat themselves in their 31-27 loss at New Orleans on Nov. 11? Receiver Roddy White was dismissive of the Saints after the game when he said, ''It's not like they came out here and won a game.'' Quarterback Matt...

QB Ranks – Week 13

QB Rankings Drew Brees and Matt Ryan are two of the top fantasy options at the quarterback position in week thirteen. The Saints struggle on the road and the Falcons excel at home which leads us to believe that the Saints may be throwing a little more thus leading to Brees being ranked ahead of Ryan this week in my rankings. RGIII has a date with the New York Football Giants on Monday...

A Running Back Committee? A Novel Idea.

We've called for more Jacquizz for a while and last week our calls were answered. As the Falcons get deeper into the season, the brass is realizing more and more that Michael Turner is not a great fit for the offense Dirk Koetter is running and that he's getting up there in "football" years and Michael Cunningham covered it today in DOL's blog. If...

Girls Of The NFL: Week 13

It only took 13 weeks to get a half decent Thursday night game on NFL Network. The Saints are taking on the Falcons in a game that could pretty much make or break their season. At 5-6 they don’t have much room for error. We like them +4 on the road, especially with how erratic Matt Ryan has been as of late. A few other bets we like? Take the Eagles +10 against the Cowboys, the...

Saints-Falcons Live Blog, Second Half

For the first 25 minutes of the half, the Saints laid dormant as the Falcons ran all over them. New Orleans’ run D barely contested a run-heavy opening drive score that was so easy for Atlanta that Michael Turner didn’t look like he weighed 400 lbs. for once. Brees responded by hitting a nearly impossible deep throw on 3rd down to get the New Orleans to the Atlanta side of the...

Saints-Falcons Preview

However, they've done a good job of giving the desperate Saints more reason to get amped up for this contest. The Falcons look to avenge their lone defeat by trying to avoid a fifth consecutive loss to the Saints on Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. Atlanta (10-1) was rolling...

Saints-Falcons Live Blog, First Half

My stars, a better than unwatchable game scheduled for a Thursday night? That simply cannot be. At least the three days of preparation will prevent what could be a good contest from living up to its potential. Being bitter division rivals, the Falcons and the Saints don’t need much to get motivated to play one another. New Orleans, of course, handed Atlanta its only loss of the...
