I was browsing google "news" for the Atlanta Falcons and came across an interesting article from a website called ThePigskinReport.com. The author basically states that he feels that the Falcons might be at their peak. His reasons for the feeling? The major players got one year older (Roddy, Turner and Gonzo), Matty Ice threw for more yards but also increased his turnovers and the Falcons have been relatively silent in Free Agency. He goes on to state that "perhaps" Mike Smith should be on the hot seat.
Worried about the "hot seat"?
Let's deal with the whole "hot seat" issue now. Anybody who has been an Atlanta Falcons fan for more than two years understands that Smith is not on the "hot seat". The Falcons hadn't even had a winning record in back-to-back seasons before Smith arrived on the scene. Now the Falcons are a consistent playoff team and have four consecutive winning seasons under their belt. Much like any coach in ...

His suit jacket cost more than your house.
Blank answers some questions about why Atlanta has not been active in free agency, and Yasinskas reads into his comments. Hardly sounds too interesting, but there are gems from Yasinskas, such as:
I get the sense that the...
Going to a “small school” might hinder your first big NFL paycheck, but it doesn’t mean you can’t ball. From Falcons running back Michael Turner (Northern Illinois) to perennial Pro Bowl defensive end DeMarcus Ware (Troy), many big names come out of these small schools and have impacts that will forever be remembered in the NFL.
The next potential small school, big...
The Atlanta Falcons have made few moves this free agency period and after surrendering so many draft choices last year in order to select WR Julio Jones in the draft, free agency was going to be the sole fashion of adding additional needed pieces this offseason. However, Atlanta has been fairly lax in the free agent market this season and fans have to be wondering what...
I might be the only Atlanta Falcons fan on earth that still has somewhat of a soft spot for Bobby Petrino. Yes, I think his cowardly ditch of the Falcons when Michael Vick was carted off to face dogfighting charges was epically wrong. But Petrino entertains me with his slick (slimy?) ways–even his press conferences can be things to remember. You know, the kinda things that get...
