Are the Falcons Interesting Enough for Hard Knocks?

Earlier today, AJC beat writer D Orlando Ledbetter told us that the Falcons have emerged as the leader to be featured on the HBO series "Hard Knocks". He later updated that to say that the Falcons have an offer and are considering doing the show. Matt has already touched a bit on this on the blog but I thought I would add a little to the conversation. I've never seen...

HBO Is Offering ‘Hard Knocks’ To The Falcons

I have confidence that NFL Films can make the “Hard Knocks” series watchable with any of 32 NFL teams, but picking the Falcons, a team that regularly makes the playoffs, loses their first game and still manages to be completely non-descript and boring, isn’t doing themselves any favors. It’s okay, though, Peter King said he knows his fave Belichick disciple GM, Tom Dimitroff...

The Falcons Success (or lack of) Could Be All About Timing

The Falcons are hoping the timing of the Nolan and Koetter hires pay off We've all heard the great argument in the NFL, and other sports..."It's all about winning".  Balderdash!  Colin Cowherd of ESPN argued that it's nowhere near all about winning when it comes to your players, and who is on your team.  His contention is that "it's all about...

Atlanta Falcons Mock Three Draft

A couple of our writers (Matt and Zach) teamed up with Alex from the Falcoholic website to take part in the recent Mock Three draft. If you don't know what the "Mock One" is it's a website that uses mock drafters for each team and they move through the draft making choices as if they were the GMs. Here is what our guys came up with as well as their comments about...

The Friday Blitz: Mock Draft 3 & Hard Knocks

    It has been an intriguing last few days for the Atlanta Falcons, as everyone might have heard by now Atlanta has been offered to be the team followed on HBO’s Hard Knocks. After much consideration, I have finally come around to liking this idea... This will put a spotlight on a team that nobody (even the fan base) knows much about.

Up until last week's car crash, most people had forgotten about how Bobby Petrino left the Atlanta Falcons unceremoniously following just 13 games with the team back in 2007.
