Falcons Will Be Boosted By Players Returning From Injuries

Teams in the National Football League are supposed to have a ‘next-man up’ mentality. If you do happen to get struck by injuries, you should have the resiliencey to bounce back. If there is ever a point though where injuries might be acceptable to use an excuse is the 2013-14 Atlanta Falcons. Key players for the ‘dirty birds’ went down week after week. Most of the players...

How can the Falcons bounce back this season?

It’s hard to tell exactly how far the Falcons will rebound next season. Free Agency has been good to the Falcons, shoring up the depth and adding beef to the interior of both lines. But the draft is a month away, and having the 6th pick all but guarantees Thomas Dimitroff will do big things to bring in top tier players. So until the draft we won’t know the full picture. The Dirty...

Top 10 prospects: Inside Linebacker

Atlanta is in dire need of depth at the linebacker position, especially since switching to a 3-4 base defense. In my opinion, Sean Weatherspoon will be most suited for moving inside next to Akeem Dent or emerging second year talent Paul Worrilow, freeing up the LOLB position for an incoming rookie. As of today, it would appear Kroy Biermann is in line to be starting ROLB. Here is...

Is Mike Smith on the hot seat?

Is Mike Smith on the hot seat? It is a fair question. He deserves the job now, but this next season will decide his future. Smith has been a central part of the brain trust since he arrived as the head coach. The organization has always preached the idea of a process. A process rooted in patience and trust. But these are wearing thin at the moment. I don’t think it was Smith...

Who are the top Free Agent Linebackers?

There is a lot of attention around Atlanta’s questionable Linebacker core. Outside of Sean Weatherspoon, there is nobody that screams “superstar”. Atlanta survived the season with two un-drafted rookies in the starting rotation. As surprising as Worrilow and Bartu’s play on the field was, the reality is that they did not help Atlanta win. They both can build on their rookie...

Atlanta Falcons: Sean Weatherspoon’s impact on Bills run game

Sean Weatherspoon is no doubt the Atlanta Falcons’ defensive leader. His three sacks, interception, and 70 tackles definitely make him a prolific linebacker in the NFL and definitely on his team, which explains why his long departure due to an injury cost the Falcons’ defense so much.  Akeem Dent was supposed to fill in for Weatherspoon, but also got hurt and left the coaches...
