FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
What can I say about Michael Turner. His time in Atlanta was good. He totaled 10+ touchdowns in each of his past 5 seasons and was a steady fantasy contributor.

The Falcons elected to not resign him this offseason and brought in Steven Jackson to change things up. But Michael Turner still believes his career is far from over. If you just look at the numbers on paper, one would think he still has game. But after seeing the dramatic decline in that “game” from 2012, I’m not so sure.
Some would argue his value is in the short yardage and goal line situations but those people are not watching him. Last season, those were his weakest points. It seemed as if Turner couldn’t gain a yard when he n...
BEST OF MAXIM
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank told Andrew Siciliano of the NFL Network that he would rather sign quarterback Matt Ryan to extension before this coming season.
“It’s important to us to get it done when it makes sense to get it done, and I can’t before the season,” said Blank. “Personally that would probably be my view, but really you have to let the principle….and...
Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is a winner due to his uncanny sense of realism.

No one has been beating down the door to sign former Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, but Falcons wideout Roddy White took to Twitter to recruit him.
As the Bucs were reportedly linked to cornerback Brent Grimes, it appears they may lose out on him now. According to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN, Grimes has an offer from another team. The Cleveland Browns reportedly have an offer for a multiyear deal on the table and that may make them the favorite to land Grimes. The Bucs also might want to consider making a strong offer.

Free agency started with a bang but the Falcons rallied the troops and re-signed our own instead of going after high priced free agents. Then the Falcons reached out and nabbed Steven Jackson but more on that later in the mailbag. Now we hear that Osi Umenyiora is in town. Free agency is far from over as the market isn't bearing the money that some free agents thought it would...
