Our Falcons Blog has a new home

It is my pleasure to announce that our Atlanta Falcons Blog page has a new home. We are excited to officially merge with Team-Superstore.com today. Click here for our new Falcons Blog Home Page

Lets get to some Falcons talk. This free-agency it seems as though most top teams are gearing up for a Super Bowl Run. The Atlanta Falcons are following suit and addressed a team need by signing Defensive End Osi Umenyiora. Atlanta also improved on the offensive side of the ball by acquiring free-agent running back Steven Jackson.The Falcons have a solid all around roster but one position still in question is cornerback. Im anxious to see if they go draft to address this need or sign one of the many notable free-agent corners. Nnamdi Asomugha, Quentin Jammer, DeAngelo Hall? After making it to the NFC Championship game last season the Falcons have only gotten better and increased their chances of winning the SuperBowl next season, especially after locking in Tight End Tony Gonzalez for one more year. But, with other NFC teams such as the Seattle Seahawks and San Fransicso 49ers also upgrading their rosters the road to the SuperBowl will be a tough one.

Players to Watch in 2013: Osi Umenyiora, Steven Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Tony Gonzalez, Harry Douglas, Matt Ryan

Undefeated

The Falcons are now 6-0. The interesting part is that they keep sneaking past teams, as opposed to winning via domination. They will eventually lose, but are enjoying the undefeated ride while they can.

9-7

The Falcons were 10-6 last year and will go 9-7 this year. Because I said so.

O, Ryan’s Belt

After leading the Falcons to an 11-5 bounce-back season and a playoff berth in his rookie year two years ago, Matt Ryan was considered by many to be the savior of the franchise. Now, after a mediocre 9-7 finish last year that was plagued by injury for Ryan, he’s looking to bounce back once more.

Keep in mind, in the NFC South in the last 10 years, no team has won the division in back-to-back years. Every team has a chance to win it each year, except for the Bucs who aren’t going anywhere fast. Ryan’s Falcons have an excellent chance at winning the division this year, given the prospect of good health. Michael Turner, who was also injured last year, has the opportunity to return to the form that he showed two years ago where he rushed for 1,700 yards.

Wide out Roddy White has shown that he can be a reliable go-to guy. Tony Gonzalez is still in the mix. Although he is getting up in years, he has shown he can still produce with the best tight ends in the game as evidenced by his 867 yards last year.

I’m also interested to see if defensive end John Abraham can return to form from two years ago where he recored 16.5 sacks.

It seems like everything was mired in mediocrity for the Falcons last year. This year presents a very good chance to snag a wild card spot, if not the NFC South. I look for them to win the division, going 11-5.

Falcons take Missouri linebacker Weatherspoon with 19th pick

Even after signing Dunta Robinson, the Atlanta Falcons were still focused on defense in the NFL draft.

The Falcons selected Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon with the 19th overall pick Thursday night and believe he’ll make an immediate impact on a unit that was ravaged by injuries, didn’t get much pressure on the quarterback, and gave up a huge amount of passing yards.

“We were very excited to have the opportunity to take an outside linebacker who’s going to ramp up our speed, our enthusiasm, our athleticism,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “In our minds, this guy is going to be a four-down player for us.”

Weatherspoon was thrilled, too.

“I’m a falcon!!!” he tweeted before his selection was even announced.

Redman Set To Takeover The Reins From Ryan

They worked closely together in Baltimore when Redman was a backup and had to run the scout team against Smith’s linebacker units.

“I’ve known Chris, very, very well,” Smith said. “Chris has a lot of confidence in his ability.”

Now Smith, with the teams’ playoff hopes in the balance, will send Redman out to win a game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles at the Georgia Dome.

Redman, who will start because Matt Ryan is out with a turf-toe injury, acknowledges he needs to shake off some rust, but at least he’ll get to the work with the first team this week.

Redman filled in for Ryan on Sunday against Tampa Bay on short notice and with only about 15 plays of practice with the first team.

He’s set to make his first start since the end of the 2007 season and his 11th NFL start overall.

Falcons’ Ryan struggling in sophomore season

The quarterback nicknamed “Matty Ice” hasn’t been as cool or efficient in his sophomore season. Welcome to the harsh reality of the NFL, Matt Ryan.


The Atlanta Falcons quarterback has been intercepted seven times in the past three games, including three times in Monday night’s 35-27 loss at New Orleans. That performance caused the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Mark Bradley to question Ryan’s true potential.

“What if he’s a good NFL quarterback, but not a great in the making?” the columnist wrote.

The Redskins – Atlanta’s opponent Sunday at the Georgia Dome – would love to have a “good NFL quarterback” right now. After leading the Falcons to an 11-5 record and a surprise playoff berth last season, however, the bar has been set high for Ryan.
