Outsiders are quick to forget that this team was one quarter away from hoisting the Lombardi trophy and a Julio Jones catch from returning to a second consecutive NFC championship game in the previous two years.

Five Falcons on the Roster Bubble

By Matt Karoly

In less than two months, the Atlanta Falcons will embark on their fifth training camp under the guidance of Dan Quinn. That means camp battles take center stage in Flowery Branch, Georgia as the Brotherhood seeks the best 53 members for its return to playoff glory.

Five Takeaways from the Falcons’ Second Preseason Game Against Pittsburgh

All in all, it was just some dumb preseason game in a city known for putting French fries on sandwiches (which tastes good, for what it’s worth). Continue reading
