SportsTalkATL Staff’s Week 3 Predictions

After a brutal loss last Sunday, the Falcons have to find a way to clear their heads and win a critical home matchup versus the 2-0 Bears. As things stand, Atlanta is far from out of it despite the black cloud that hovers over teams that start the season 0-2. However, an 0-3 start with

Looking ahead: Falcons 2021 salary cap

After dropping the first two games of the season, this 2020 Falcons team looks eerily similar to the 2019 squad that was so wildly inconsistent. The season is long and strenuous; anything can happen in the NFL over the course of 17 weeks. Though, I do feel safe in assuming that Dan Quinn and Thomas

3 Keys: Falcons vs Bears

The Bears continue to live in mediocracy with Mitchell Trubisky under center. Chicago is 2-0 but has the most “2-0 and miss the playoffs” vibes among those still undefeated. Mitch threw two quick touchdowns against a bad Giants defense, then inevitably stalled out in the second half, including a pair of interceptions.  Fortunately for Chicago’s

Falcons: Matt Gono provides much-needed depth

Last Sunday, Kaleb McGary exited the game with what was reported at the time to be a knee injury. It looked catastrophic as he grabbed his left knee in obvious pain and could not put weight on it even with the trainers’ assistance. Thankfully, it is just an MCL sprain and might only sideline him

Three positive takeaways through two weeks

As a Packers fan, I could not be happier with the trajectory of Green Bay after two weeks. Being 2-0, with a happy marriage between my head coach and quarterback, has me in a wonderful mood. In fact, I feel so good that I will point out to the miserable Falcons fans a few positive

“Disgusted!” -Stephen A. Smith

The Falcons have an incredible ability to lose in the most spectacular fashion, raising the bar each year. It all began in 2012 when they blew a 17-point lead at home in the second half of the NFC Championship Game. Since the Falcons have continued to find ways to lose unlosable games, and they usually

3 Key Players: Falcons vs Cowboys

After a Week 1 loss to Seattle on the road, Atlanta will travel to Arlington to play the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are also looking for their first win of the season, so nothing will come easy for the Falcons Sunday, but at least they are healthier than Jerry’s team. Out for Dallas this Sunday:

Overreaction Tuesday: 2021 Head Coach and General Manager Candidates

The performance against Seattle last Sunday has Dan Quinn “mad as hell.” Unfortunately, we have seen this facade before. Quinn has reacted the same way multiple times over the last few years in response to his team’s abysmal performance. The overreaction is that this team is still comprised of a potent offense and a newly
