Atlanta Falcons Retooled Offensive Line Will Help Them Win the Division

Ryan

Atlanta is 3-2 with their current offensive line configuration, and had Mike Smith exercised better clock management, the Falcons could very easily be 5-0 with their current line configuration. The retooling has led to better pass- and run-blocking over the past five weeks and should help the Falcons win the division this season. It also allowed the Falcons to useRead the Rest…


Atlanta Falcons Switching to a 6-Man Offensive Line Could Answer Offensive Woes

MattRyan

The Atlanta Falcons have one of the most inconsistent running games in the NFL. A big reason for that is the lack of chemistry that the current five offensive linemen have after injuries decimated the Falcons’ O-line. Going with six offensive linemen on every play could be a way to improve the team. Inspiration for this idea came from watching the New England PatriotstakeRead the Rest…

Zach Kidd’s “What Would I Do” Mock

HHCD

I’m not Thomas Dimitroff, so obviously I have a differing view of what the team should do come draft day. Those plans are probably drastically different from the ones Atlanta has. However, I’m my own special brand of evil genius, and during this exercise where I demonstrate what I would do if I were the GM of Atlanta, (All 7Read the Rest…

All Along the Watch Tower: A Guide to 2014′s Atlanta Falcons Free Agency

An unexpected storm has thrown the ships off course for the Falcons franchise: a team that just a year prior was five yards from the franchise’s 2nd ever Super Bowl berth.

Senior Bowl Notes: North Practice

I missed the beginning portion of the North practice because of traffic and how the practices were staggered, but I got plenty of notes on the trenches despite that. First of all, Aaron Donald was completely whipping Cyril Richardson all day today. Whether it was 1 on 1′s or team, he was beating him consistently and only lost a fewRead the Rest…


Senior Bowl Notes: South Practice

At the beginning of the practice I watched the DB’s to get a feel for a couple of the guys I hadn’t seen much of, and was intrigued by Walt Aikens and Lavelle Westbrooks. Westbrooks looked smooth and made some nice catches fully extending his arms which isn’t typical for defensive backs. Aikens didn’t look quite as smooth, and heRead the Rest…
