Atlanta Falcons news: Falcons ready to wrestle with the Rams

The Atlanta Falcons have a great opportunity to make everyone forget about their Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints this Sunday, when the team has their home opener against the St. Louis Rams. The Falcons, who lost to New Orleans 23-17, will be taking on a Jeff Fisher-led St. Louis Rams squad that edged out the Arizona Cardinals 27-24 to begin the season 1-0. Offensively, the...

Atlanta Falcons: What We’ve Learned

So close to a victory, yet so far away… (Photo by Bill Haber) Atlanta Falcons fans were ecstatic about their team’s 2013 season kickoff against their division rivals, the New Orleans Saints. When Steven Jackson signed with the team this offseason, many believed that their offensive struggles were through. Matty Ice threw for 4,719 yards last season with the help of Pro-Bowlers...

Steven Jackson: The Atlanta Falcons’ battering ram

Steven Jackson is a proverbial battering ram at his position as halfback in the NFL.  After playing professional football for nearly an entire decade, there are more than enough defenders to confirm that fact. Drafted by the St. Louis Rams in 2004, he never witnessed a winning season. Although, he did have a good amount of individual success, for he is the most productive active...

Falcons' Jackson ready to roll against ex-Rams 'mates

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Steven Jackson revealed an introspective and even sensitive side on Wednesday, as he talked about Sunday's looming matchup with the Rams, his first and only NFL team from 2004-12. That might, at first, seem surprising for a figure of Jackson's chiseled physical stature (6-foot-2, 240). But the three-time Pro Bowler also possesses an artistic side, which...

Motivation won't be an issue for Steven Jackson when Rams visit Atlanta

ST. LOUIS -- Don't let all the happy talk fool you. As cordially and professionally as Steven Jackson and his old team are talking about each other this week, you can be sure there's some resentment buried beneath all the platitudes. How could there not be on Jackson's side? He gave the Rams nine strong years and became the franchise's all-time leading rusher...

Rams must keep focus on containing high-powered Falcons offense

St. Louis Rams: 5 things to watch versus Atlanta

After a late fourth quarter come back win in Week 1, the St. Louis Rams will be looking to extend their record to 2-0 on the season as they travel to see old friend Steven Jackson and the Atlanta Falcons. It will be an emotional game for both sides as the Rams hook-up with their old friend and the franchise’s all-time leading rusher. But there is more to this game then just that...

Were the Falcons Too Predictable on First Down in Week One?

Earlier this week we looked at the Falcons and how they fared on third down in the season opening loss to the Saints. Spoiler Alert: it wasn't pretty. Another thing that I noticed as the game unfolded was that the Falcons were quite unbalanced on first down plays. Let's break it down into quarters and see how the Falcons were at mixing it up on the all important...

St. Louis Rams at Atlanta Falcons: Three Bold Predictions

No. 1 Jared Cook Continues To Be A BeastCook’s 141-yard, 2 touchdown day versus the Arizona Cardinals was just the beginning to what this guy is going to accomplish this season. Throughout the game Cook showed the he was Sam Bradford’s favorite target and that should continue on Sunday. The Falcons surrendered 357 receiving yards last Sunday to the New Orleans Saints and 45...

Atlanta Falcons/St Louis Rams Preview

Week 2 is here and the Atlanta Falcons are already looking at a must win situation. The odds of a team making the playoffs after a 0-2 start are 13%. Yikes! The Falcons host the Rams this week, and thankfully Matty Ice refuses to lose at home (in the regular season…) so I fully expect Atlanta to rebound this weekend.   The Falcons will be reluctant to start Roddy...

Off the collar: Atlanta Falcon tweaks before St. Louis Rams

Atlanta, GA- The Atlanta Falcons lost the season opener to the Saints 23-17 at the Superdome in New Orleans. However, the Falcons can rectify the situation if they impress the Atlanta fans at the Georgia Dome Sunday, September 15. Fan of the Falcons or not, many people were expecting many more points from the team that went to the NFC Championship game last year. Getting held under...

Saints Nation: 5 Things to Look for in Bucs @ Saints

Gameday!! I don't know that this has ever happened in Saints history, but the Saints will be trying to go 2-0 today with two wins over NFC South opponents. That would be a huge way to set themselves up to start this season if they can pull this game off. I don't expect it to be easy and what makes me most nervous is Tampa's vastly improved defense coupled with how shaky...
