On this week there were three particular headlines that were interesting covering the Atlanta Falcons; 1. The Atlanta Falcons after the draft signed 24 college free agents that included; Kicker Casey Barth from UNC, Linebacker […]
It’s tough to consider a team that finished the regular season 13-3 as not having lived up to expectations. Some would say that since Atlanta finally won a post season game for the first time in nearly a decade, the season was a success. Others would argue that because of the way Atlanta finished the season, it should be considered a disappointment.
If Atlanta didn’t already have hopes to beat Seattle yesterday, with the announcement of Chris Clemons torn ACL and meniscus, they certainly do now.
Asante’s 31st birthday on January 6th will be anything but happy. Rather than spending the time relaxing with his friends or preparing for his Playoff game next week, Asante has to bury his mother.

The beauty of the Falcons passing offense is while you never know which of the Big Three will come up with the big stats, you always know one of them will do just that. However, with Roddy potentially out against New York, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez may have to work that much harder to ensure Roddy’s production isn’t missed.

With less than four days after their win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Atlanta Falcons must suit up and face another divisional foe. The question remains if the shortened work week will mean more injuries for either team.
One of the rare times in this season that the Atlanta Falcons have more players in their injury report than their opponents. This time, twelve Falcons are on the report while the Saints have just five.
Every week takes a toll on players’ bodies. Yet there always seems like certain teams can’t prevent catching the injury bug. That may have just happened to the Falcons.
