Philadelphia Eagles: a new role for Darren Sproles

Even when the shifty, cut-on-a-dime back Darren Sproles was at Kansas State University he turned heads as a rusher. In his three years as a starter he averaged nearly 1,600 yards (1,986 in 2003) and about 15 touchdowns (17 in 2002). In 2003, he led the nation in rushing yards and finished 5th in the Heisman Trophy voting. When he left Kansas State for the NFL he left a mark in the...

Atlanta Falcons Plan to Run the Ball More in 2015

Make no mistake, the NFL is a passing league, but most, if not all, the great offenses in the league also have a good running game. The Atlanta Falcons used to possess a dynamic rushing attack, but the team has broken away from that the last three years. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White admitted this week that the team needs to return to its 2008 roots. "I just don't think we're...

Falcons Should Address Running Back Need in Draft

The running game of the Atlanta Falcons has been pretty poor since 2011. Since that year, the Falcons have failed to have a single running back record over 800 rushing yards. Before the 2013 season, Michael Turner was released from the Falcons and replaced with Steven Jackson. At the time, the Falcons believed that Turner was no longer able to be the power-back of the offense and...

Can the Falcons get back to their 2012 form?

All of us would like the Falcon’s to repeat the success they had in 2012, and bounce back from last season’s car-wreck. Missing the Superbowl by less than 5 yards is one of the most disappointing instances in recent Falcons’ history, if not of all time. If this year’s team expects to achieve relative success in comparison to the Falcons’ team that should have made the Superbowl...

Top 10 Falcons since 2004: Final Five

   Link to #10-6 #5: Center,  Todd McClure (2000-2012) As great as Tyson Clabo was for the Falcons’ there is little doubt in my mind that McClure is the best Falcons’ offensive lineman over the past 10 years. McClure was the heart, soul and mind of a Falcons’ line whose mid-2000′s rushing attack dominated the league and lead the league from ’04 to ’06. While Vick...

Surprises in store for Atlanta’s Mt. Rushmore

Recently a staff member at cover32 broke down the Mt. Rushmore of every NFL team. Atlanta comes in with some surprises at the top. Allow me to tell you who is not there: no current players, no Terrance Mathis, no Michael Turner, not even Jamal Anderson (the dirty bird himself), or Keith Brooking. In fact, some of the big heads selected may require you to dig deep in Falcon lore to...
