Atlanta Falcons: 5 Questions at Training Camp

What was supposed to be a Super Bowl season for the Atlanta Falcons in 2013 turned into an absolute disaster. The injury plague hit the team harder than a Mike Tyson left hook, and the team finished dead last in the NFC South. When healthy, the Falcons are one of the most talented teams in all of football.

Could Jermichael Finley be the missing piece to the Atlanta Falcons’ offense?

What the Falcons’ offense truly lacks is a tight...

Some final insight on the Atlanta Falcons draft

The NFL Draft was a hurricane of drama, suspense, and excitement. The Atlanta Falcons came away with multiple players that should be making an immediate impact. Here are a couple of thoughts I had during the weekend: 1. What does Atlanta do now at Tight End? Atlanta obviously has far more faith in Levine Toilolo than we ever imagined. The former 4th round pick had his ups and downs...
