Julio Jones Is Good, but Atlanta Falcons Traded Way Too Much

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft was filled with surprises, ranging from Jake Locker going 8th overall to James Carpenter getting picked by the Seahawks at 25. While fans were shocked left and right, one move that stood out to me for its outrageousness was Atlanta’s decision to trade five draft picks for…Read More

2,288 Atlanta Students Set Exercise Record at Georgia Dome with Falcons

When they’re not dealing with helmet-to-helmet hits, DUIs, and drug arrests, the NFL actually does a fantastic job with its public relations. It’s nearly impossible to watch an NFL game and not see a commercial for their Play 60 program, or at least a logo on the field somewhere. The Play 60 program is pretty…Read More

Samuel L. Jackson Reps the Atlanta Falcons in New Commercial

Samuel L. Jackson never met a script he didn’t like. Perhaps then it’s no surprise to see him pimping the Atlanta Falcons in a commercial for their ticket sales department despite Jackson being born in D.C, growing up in Chattanooga, and living in Los Angeles. I guess his ties to the Falcons come from his…Read More

The Falcons Are Going to Have a Scary-Good Offense This Season

Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Doesn’t Understand Which Team to Cheer For

I spent Monday praising the Falcons for their turnaround and Matt Ryan for his amazing display of maturity despite being a rookie quarterback. You would ordinarily figure that if anyone would be pleased by the team’s display it would be the team’s owner, Arthur Blank. While Blank might be pleased with the team’s success, he…Read More

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons: Biggest Surprises in the NFL

Through six weeks of the NFL season, the Atlanta Falcons are far and away the biggest surprise of the NFL. They’re tied for first at 4-2 and they’re doing it with a rookie quarterback as their starter. I’d guess that 90% of all prognosticators didn’t think the Falcons would win more than four games all…Read More

Michael Vick’s Pit Bulls to Star in Reality TV Show

A few days ago I passed along the news that some of Vick’s pit bulls had been rescued and were up for adoption. (I’m still interested in putting together an LBS fundraiser to snag one as the site’s official mascot, fyi). Anyway, pressing along, apparently these dogs are heading to Hollywood for the big time,…Read More
