Falcons: The Raheem Morris effect

If the Falcons are to return to the playoffs in a division with two other future Hall of Fame quarterbacks, they must be able to stop teams when it counts. They will only go as far as the defense enables them to. Led by Matt Ryan and his litany of weapons, the offense will score

Will the Falcons pass rush actually be better in 2020?

Atlanta’s 2019 season puzzled many fans with their 1-7 start prior to going 6-2 over their final eight games.

How Marlon Davidson fits into the Falcons defense

The Falcons selected defensive tackle Marlon Davidson out of Auburn with the 47th pick in the second round. I love this selection for Atlanta. Not only does it solve a positional need along the defensive front, but Davidson fits Dan Quinn’s scheme to perfection. Quinn and Dimitroff were steadfast in their approach to bolster the
