Walker: Three for the Falcons

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 […]

Final Thoughts On The 2012 Atlanta Falcons

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.

Seattle Loses DE Chris Clemons, More Pressure On Falcons

Asante Samuel Continues To Heal After Mother Dies Days Before Birthday

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.

Falcons May be Without Roddy against Giants

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.

Falcons Make Use of “Mini-Bye Week”, Key Players Back for Carolina

While whoever came up with the famous “Time heals all wounds” quote probably wasn’t thinking about the Atlanta Falcons. Still, that doesn’t mean the saying doesn’t apply.

Falcons And Saints Are Both Beat-Up For Round 2
