Welp, that’s all she wrote. With the Falcons’ season ending at the two-yard line, it’s time to put the 2017 season into perspective and ponder what lies ahead for this team.

Mike and Cory are back for the final edition of this year’s Rise Up Reader podcast, joined by RUR contributor and fantasy guru Evan Birchfield to talk about what happened in Philly and how the Falcons can get back on track next year.

On this week’s pod: 

Flying Too Close to the Sun: The Falcons’ season bounced between close wins and mind-numbing losses, but their fatal red-zone flaw was their ultimate undoing. We discuss how they can improve with Sark and what personnel moves are needed this offseason.

A Falcon-y Free Agency: With key players like Dontari Poe, Taylor Gabriel, Adrian Clayborn, and Matt Bryant hitting the open market, we discuss the futures of each player and who we’d like to see back in red and black.

You Reap What You #SKOL: The guys laugh at the Saints and give their predictions for who will be playing in Super Bowl LII. Hint: we’re not pulling for the Patriots.
