In addition to being a die hard Atlanta Falcons fan, Matt is also an avid Villanova University men's basketball fan. Matt did not, however, attend the university as he is a graduate of Bloomsburg University (PA) where he earned a bachelor's and master's degree in Accounting. Matt currently works as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) at a local CPA firm in the Lehigh Valley (about an hour north of Philadelphia).
With the Falcons mandatory mini camp set for June 12-14 and training camp to follow in July, real football is on the horizon, folks. To get you prepared, I thought we’d start by diving into some of the competitions that will take place this summer in Flowery Branch.
With the Falcons roster seemingly set for 2018, now’s as good a time as any to step into the future and examine how this organization plans to keep the machine rolling. By my estimation, Atlanta will have $148.5 million committed to 30 players that I’ve deemed to be safe roster bets in 2019.
With a little over a week to go until the NFL Draft, it’s safe to say the Atlanta Falcons will not be adding any more bodies to their roster ahead of draft day. According to the NFLPA’s salary cap report, the Falcons have a little over $1.4 million left in cap space.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is not a complacent individual.
We saw it last year after the Super Bowl when he reshuffled his staff, parting ways with defensive coordinator Richard Smith and defensive line coach Bryan Cox. However, that wasn’t the only makeover the team would undergo, and the fruits of Quinn’s labor are finally coming to light.
From the moment the Atlanta Falcons stepped foot on Louisiana soil, they were not meant to beat the Saints in week 16. And it wasn’t necessarily because they were not the better team.
What started out as a ploy to slant the game by the officials turned into another installment of the Falcons beating themselves in comical fashion. From the buttception to the butt fumble, the season of unluckiness marched on in N’awlins.
