Analyzing the 2011 Draft: Atlanta Falcons

When it comes to grading team’s in the NFL Draft, it takes 3 years to properly asses a team’s success. I previously graded the Minnesota Vikings draft. That article can be found here: The NFC North is now complete, and next up is the NFC South. I will start with the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta was coming...

Falcons P Matt Bosher lays out New York Jets coach (GIF)

The Atlanta Falcons did not play a whole lot of defense against the New York Jets on Monday night. When one of the highlights of your stunning 30-28 loss at home involves a punter laying out a coach, you know there wasn’t much that went right. At least Matt Bosher got his licks in. Bosher, […]

Falcons Punter Matt Bosher Gets Awfully, Awfully Physical With The Jets

After getting called for a horse collar tackle on the Jets return man, Falcons punter Matt Bosher took out a Jets staff member on the sideline.  It appears unintentional at first glance, but if you look closely you can see a little bit of movement in Bosher’s right arm.  Did the punter throw a little bit of a check there?  Maybe he was still a little salty about this punt block...

Falcons streak past Eagles

The Falcons extend their record to 7-0 with a 30-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons built an early lead, and pretty much were on cruise control for most of the day as the Eagles struggled to find a rhythm and made a lot of mental errors. Mike Smith pushes his post-bye record to 4-1, and gets revenge for his lone loss suffered against the Eagles in 2008. This win also...

Camp Battles 2012: Special Teams

The Falcons will have arguably the most amount of competition for roles on special teams in seemingly a long while this summer. The team is two-deep at all three specialist spots, and both return spots are completely open to competition. It is likely that the incumbents at all three specialist spots will retain their jobs with Matt Bryant at kicker, Matt Bosher at punter, and...

The Atlanta Falcons 2011 NFL Draft class was hit and miss

The Falcons gave up a lot to get WR Julio Jones last April, but he was very solid when healthy.  The Falcons also got their starting punter in the 6th round (Matt Bosher).  Here is a look at how they did pick by pick last April: The Falcons traded a lot of picks to the Cleveland Browns for the right to move up and select 22-year old WR Julio Jones.  Jones played in 13 games for...

Year-End Superlatives: Special Teams MVP

Very little attention is paid to special teams generally speaking. The only time this unit gets much pub is when your fat Polish kicker booms a 60-yard field goal, or some team is foolish enough to kick/punt the ball to your game-breaking returner. The Falcons did not have any of those moments this year. At the midpoint, Matt Bryant was the pick. Bryant had been solid up to that...
