Alright, Falcoholics, Womens Terrell McClain Jersey we get it. Things are bad right now. It’s hard to get out of bed. But the sun still rises on winners and losers, and though to be Falcon is to be a loser at the moment, chin up. We’ve still got plenty of football ahead of us, and this is the Atlanta Falcons were talking about. When have they ever met expectations? Let’s take a gander at the news you need to know on this fall Wednesday. Game On or Game Over? Well, with Atlanta at a shocking 1-4 on the season and 11 games to go, The Fellowship of the Ringless gathered to discuss if the show is really over for the 2018 season. The consensus? Well, it’s not looking good, but that doesn’t mean you should stop paying attention. We all hypothetically cede that the Falcons could still turn it around, though it’d be mightily difficult, and this defensive group is still a pumpkin, not a carriage. Though, don’t knock the time the rookies and reserves are getting right now. Guys like Calvin Ridley, Duke Riley, Ito Smith http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/ryan-schraeder-jersey , Isaiah Oliver, Deadrin Senat, Foyesade Oluokun and Damontae Kazee are going to relish these rough reps now so they can reap the rewards of their resolve later on down the road. So, in other words, kinda, but not really? Read the long take above. Leave Dan Quinn AloneThe worst conversation going on right now in Falconland is the one about head coach Dan Quinn. He’s, by far, the best head coach this team has ever had, and has never had a losing season in his three seasons here. Sure, this might be his first, but is that really on him? Half his defense is in an iron lung. Dave reassures folks that no, indeed, they aren’t going to fire him. He’s not perfect, but no head coach is. He’s an excellent eye for talent, a spirited motivator and culture builder, a great defensive schemer and talent developer and an all-around good person. You don’t let those guys go in a year marred by injuries and a tough opening schedule. That’s what the franchises who don’t win much do. Save the follow-ups. Divisional Daydreams Adnan took a look at all the other teams in the NFC South Womens Brian Poole Jersey , and well, it’s going about as you’d expect. The New Orleans Saints are celebrating a new made-up record or whatever for Drew Brees, a continual process of patting the Golden Boy on the head for garbage stats that has been going on since 2011. We get it; Brees is accomplished and stuff, but the cavalcade of giving him puppy eyes and a parade down Bourbon Street every time the guy sneezes has got to stop. He’s got the Saints at 4-1. They look like clear division favorites right now. The Panthers are 3-1 coming off a win over the Giants, and look like Wild Card contenders. Though, that defense isn’t the same this year. The Bucs are 2-2; no one cares. Hoop Alert While Pittsburgh was mainly a stomachache wrapped in a nightmare, one Falcon had a career day. Hey, there you go Austin Hooper! The third-year tight end seems to get better each and every game and is emerging as one of the better starting options in the NFL. His continued growth will be huge for the Falcons as the next few years go on.Cooking for CharityLet’s end things on a positive note, shall we?The service-minded Falcons held their annual Dazzle and Dine event for breast cancer awareness and its survivors, which is a noble cause and successful event for a group of folks who deserve all the love and support they can get. Though, the flames of irony would’ve capped the night if this wayward grill top had gotten the best of the Money Man. We are both incredibly happy to see Matt Bryant serving the community and not being set aflame off while doing so. This is not the “heating up in October” any of us would’ve had in mind. So there are your links. Get ‘em while they’re hot. We’ll see you fine folks Thursday for more news and nonsense, the Falcoholic way.Falcons vs. Bengals: One reason to feel confident, one reason to worry This week, as we do every week, we’re going to look at a great reason to feel good about the Falcons’ chances and a reason to tear your hair out in frantic worry. Some of us don’t have hair, but bear with me. One reason to feel confident: The fireworks show The Bengals should be a better defense than the Saints. Interestingly enough Womens Grady Jarrett Jersey , though, they really haven’t been to this point, and it seems unlikely that they’ll magically figure things out this week.The Falcons, meanwhile, are on quite a roll. After a beyond-disappointing performance in the first game of the season, the Falcons have rolled up 68 points over the last two weeks, with Matt Ryan rolling up nine touchdowns all on his own. The run game has been a bit spotty—it was great against the Panthers and lousy against the Saints—but the Falcons have been killing it through the air. That’s unlikely to magically change, too. The Bengals have some very good cornerbacks, but Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are proving to be capable of hurting you regardless of which one you ultimately choose to double team, and the Falcons can spread the ball to Austin Hooper, Mohamed Sanu, Tevin Coleman, Ito Smith, Eric Saubert, Justin Hardy, and Marvin Hall if those two are tied up. There are defenses who will be able to slow Atlanta down Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey , but this doesn’t look like one of them.One reason to worry: Tackling The Falcons lost against the Saints for many reasons, but when you come right down to it, missed tackles did as much to swing the game as anything else. The Falcons missed at least 15, per Marquand Manuel, and some of those led to huge gains for Alvin Kamara and Taysom Hill. Hell, they even led to a Drew Brees touchdown run.The Falcons can’t afford to repeat that error against the Bengals, who offer some problematic players of their own. They have speedy receivers, Giovani Bernard available as a dangerous receiving option out of the backfield, and even a solidly athletic quarterback in Andy Dalton. If the Falcons can keep plays in front of them and get a little more out of the pass rush, I feel pretty good about this one. If they continue to whiff, this is going to be a difficult game for them to win unless the offense goes absolutely ballistic. What are you worried and/or confident about this week?
