It was another tough pill to swallow for the Falcons on Sunday as they watched an early 10-0 lead vanish throughout the game. The offense looked as if it was going to click after the first few series of moving the ball, but it never did as they put just seven points on the board in three quarters after scoring ten in the first. The Panthers advanced to 6-3 as the Falcons dropped back to .500 at 4-4 with a 20-17 loss on the road at the Panthers. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones each had great days for the Atlanta offense as each were in the top...Continue reading »

We’re back, folks. Chase Irle talks about the Falcons offensive struggles and the first weeks of the Hawks rebuild. Enjoy! ...

 Depending on how you thought the Falcons season would go, this team is either right were you thought they would be or grossly underachieving. A 3-0 start, including a demolishing of the Packers, halted all talk of a Super Bowl hangover. However, over the past four weeks, far more worrisome problems have been discovered. An immensely talented offense struggling to score against the league’s worst defense, blowing a seventeen point second half lead to the lowly Dolphins, and a trend of undisciplined football have the Falcons sitting at 3-3 and on the outside looking...Continue reading »

3. Matt Ryan’s play This has not been the start to 2017 that Matt Ryan dreamed of following his MVP campaign. After throwing just seven picks all of last year, Ryan has five through the first four games. Ignoring the stats, that are far from the numbers he was putting up a season ago, the eye-test will show a more skittish and unsure quarterback in 2017. He has made some boneheaded decisions that have resulted in turnovers and finally cost the Falcons a game last Sunday. Turnovers are the most obvious blemish so far for Atlanta, and one that the Falcons must fix...Continue reading »

There have been rumors of dysfunction in the Braves organization behind the scenes for weeks. This stirred up a lot of rumors regarding the future of Brian Snitker. John Coppolella had made some snarky comments regarding Snitker, which led many to believe he could be out the door. However, it appears this was more of an internal issue in the front office, and it is now Coppy who is out. It was reported today that the Braves will pick up their option on Brian Snitker, making him manager for the 2018 season: Brian Snitker will return as the Atlanta manager in 2018....Continue reading »

John Coppolella’s resignation came as a shock to the baseball world. While there have certainly been reports of tension in the Braves front office, many felt that this was due to the manager controversy going on with Brian Snitker, as his status seemingly has changed every week. It appears the problems were way bigger than anyone thought. Coppy has reportedly been being investigated by the MLB for rules violations, and frankly being a scumbag to his peers. Coppy has done a solid job of laying the foundation for the Braves rebuild alongside John Hart. While his...Continue reading »

Both of the Falcons leading receivers left Sunday’s game with lower body injuries and never returned in the Falcons 23-17 loss to the Bills. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jones’s left with a hip flexor injury. Falcons WR Julio Jones has a hip flexor injury but with a bye this week, Atlanta does not expect him to miss playing time, per source. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 2, 2017 Dan Quinn stated that Jones did want to return to the game after exiting, but was held out for precaution. With the Falcons heading into a bye week,...Continue reading »

5. Matt Ryan has to be better After shocking the world on the way to the 2016 NFL MVP, Matt Ryan has not had the start he envisioned coming into the season. Through four games, Ryan has just five touchdowns to match his five interceptions (good for third in the league), although he has thrown for the sixth most yards thus far. Turnovers have been a huge problem for Ryan in year’s past, and they cost the Falcons big time in this one. The loss of Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu did not do him any favors, but an MVP caliber quarterback is expected to find a way to win...Continue reading »

Coppy has a bright mind but is not one to bite his tongue....Continue reading »
