Found January 23, 2012 on FalcFans:
The team announced that secondary coach Alvin Reynolds won’t return to the Falcons in 2012, joining former offensive line coach Paul Boudreau as another assistant that the Falcons opted not to renew their contracts with the team. Reynolds came over to the Falcons with Mike Smith in 2008 after several years as the defensive backs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Falcons hired Tim Lewis two years ago to help improve their secondary play, and presumably he will take over full duties of that position group with Reynolds departing. On the potential front of replacing Boudreau, the Falcons were reportedly interested in Jaguars OL coach Andy Heck, who served with both Dirk Koetter and Mike Smith in Jacksonville since 2006. In Jacksonville, Heck replaced Boudreau that year. But according to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Heck will be retained by the Jaguars under new head coach and former Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey. Boudreau has since been hired by the St...

Roddy White wins PFWA’s ‘Good Guy’ Award

  Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White talks to the media whether if it's about Michael Vick or Victor Cruz he's always helpful. Curtis Compton ccompton@ajc.com FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was voted the team’s Good Guy Award winner by the local chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America for the 2011 season.  It was a close vote between...

Free Agent Focus: Running Back

Jacquizz Rodgers I’ve already discussed that I believe the Falcons should be parting ways with Michael Turner this off-season. And if that were to happen, then it would leave a pretty large hole atop the team’s depth chart at the running back. One hope would be that Jacquizz Rodgers can fill that hole or at least a large part of it. Rodgers was underutilized by the Falcons this...

Falcons made another chance on coaching staff

The Atlanta Falcons have made another change on their coaching staff, firing defensive backs assistant Alvin Reynolds. The announcement Monday continues the shakeup that began after the Falcons were blown out by the New York Giants in the opening round of the playoffs. Reynolds had been with the team since head coach Mike Smith was hired in 2008. The Falcons lost Smith's top...

State of The Franchise – The Quarterbacks

This is the 2nd post in the State of The Franchise that will run over the next few weeks. I reviewed the Falcons corners a week or so ago, in light of the news that Brent Grimes could be deemed expendable by the organisation. Today is the turn of the QB position. Obviously this conversion begins by discussing current starter Matt Ryan. Despite having a lot of regular season success...

Falcons Free Agents to Re-sign

Give Your List of Must-Keeps Not Even a Debate on Lofton (AP) As the Atlanta Falcons approach the 2012 off-season, one of the most interesting points to follow is how much the Birds roster, which has been extremely stable the last four year, will change. Those very few changes made a lot of sense when the Falcons were believed to be “right on the cusp of greatness.” But going...

Fullbacking Future

Is Ovie done in Atlanta? To be honest, when I wrote up the free agent focus article on the running back position, I completely ignored the fullback position. It was an error on my part because it’s a position that is often overlooked, but in the case of the Falcons it certainly will be worth watching this off-season. New offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter by many accounts prefers...

Terrell ‘T-Sizzle’ Suggs checks in on Dirk Koetter

Terrell Suggs (Rob Carr, Associated Press) Before Terrell Suggs turned in to a terror for the Baltimore Ravens, he played for Falcons new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter at Arizona State in 2001 and 2002.
