The defense was back to 100%; the offensive line was revamped; the skill positions were as loaded as ever, and the pesky coaches that were responsible for 2018’s downfall were no longer
The Atlanta Falcons are off to a disastrous start at 1-3 on the season, and things only seem to be getting worse each Sunday. Every week we see a different team with a new dilemma. Many areas need to be fixed, but the Falcons’ primary issue is their lack of identity. Dan Quinn and Company

Stop me if you have heard this before “Vic Beasley is a bust,” “Vic Bustly,” or “Vic Beasley should be traded for a 3rd round pick.” That narrative stays the same while one fact remains, Vic Beasley, as of today, is still a member of the Atlanta Falcons and that is not changing in 2019.
The year is 1950, and everything is rapidly changing not only in the National Basketball Association but the world. The season before was the last year that the NBA would be an all-white basketball league. Four African-American players earned roster spots at the start of the 1950-51 NBA season.
