FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Entering Sundays game with Dallas, the status of Falcons leading tackler Sean Weatherspoon, who suffered an ankle injury in Sundays 30-17 win over Philadelphia and did not return to the game, remains unknown, as head coach Mike Smith did not offer an update on Monday. Atlanta (7-0) will host Dallas (3-4), owner of the leagues No. 7 offense in an NFC matchup that carries more significance for the Cowboys, who stand 1 games behind Minnesota and Green Bay, each 5-3, in the wildcard race. Weatherspoon, the Falcons first-round pick in 2011, is one of the defenses most important players. Until he left the field with 9:08 remaining in the fourth quarter, Weatherspoon had played every defensive snap for the Falcons this season. He was removed from the field on a cart and replaced by fellow linebacker Akeem Dent. Sean is in the training room and well have a more concrete idea of where hes at after practice (on Wednesday), Smith said. He did sustain an ankle injury in ...

Who Are These Undefeated Falcons

Who are the 2012 Atlanta Falcons?  After watching seven games, the best I can come up with is: "awesomely undefeated." Drew Davis upsetting fantasy football teams everywhere. I have seen stifling and opportunistic defenses only a week before seeing the same players struggle to stop a nosebleed.  Or even an offense that has averaged over 28 points a game but...

Falcons win should cement spot as NFL's best

The Falcons loomed as the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, but they entered Sunday's game at Philadelphia as an underdog. Perception lurked greater than reality: The Eagles as NFC heavyweight, having gained a berth to the conference championship game five times in head coach Andy Reid's first 13 seasons; the Falcons as pretender, having gone 0-3 in the playoffs in...

Why benching Mike Vick won’t fix the Philadelphia Eagles

Everyone must stand alone. For anyone who watched the Philadelphia Eagles’ third straight loss on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons,  it was clear that the game was lost overwhelmingly because of the pitiful showing by the team’s defense. However, on Monday, the headlines surrounding the game were dominated by talk of benching quarterback Mike Vick. The Eagles’ offense was...

Falcons beat Eagles to remain NFL's only unbeaten team

PHILADELPHIA - The Atlanta Falcons had to work too hard and too long for some of their earlier victories, and they didn't want the same thing to happen again. So they scored early and often and rolled to a 30-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at rainy, windy Lincoln Financial Field to remain the NFL's only undefeated team. The Eagles had changed defensive...

You've got to give Moonbeam credit (begrudgingly)... He's said all along the 2012 Eagles were deficient on both the defensive and the offensive lines, and at the safety positions... and last Sunday, he was proven correct.  The Eagles (3-4) were beaten and worn down off the snap on both sides of the ball, albeit by a very good Falcons team that is for real at 7-0.....
