Five things we learned from Saturday’s game against the Titans

1. We are not the team we saw against Houston, and that Falcon fans is GREAT news. 2. Devin Hester is showing signs of life on offense. Could he be in store for more offensive snaps? I believe so, the loss of Drew Davis has trusted Hester into the spotlight at the #4 spot. If Atlanta wants to be explosive, keeping #17 on the field provides that chance. 3. Matt Ryan looked comfortable...

Game Notes: Falcons/ Texans

The Falcons’ second preseason game of the year was an utter disaster: a 32-7 loss to the Houston Texans, a team that won just two games last season. This loss looks even worse when considering the Falcons were crushed by a team coming off a 32-0 defeat just last week. Atlanta was outplayed in every phase of the game and looked nothing like the team we saw just a week before against...

Atlanta’s Julio Jones was on fire at the beginning of 2013, tallying 41 catches in five games. Unfortunately that’s where it ended, as a foot injury cost him the rest of the season.
