Every year, a new Madden game comes out. And every year, it’s fun to simulate the entire Madden season to see what kind of crazy things happen. This year, there was a lot of crazy.
This week, see if Michael and Cory can dig themselves out of the deep, dark abyss of depression that was the Falcons’ devastating and unfathomable Super Bowl loss. They’ll talk through their free agency wish lists, pretending the agonizing pain of blowing a 25-point lead in the Super Bowl isn’t still staring them in the face (at least for Michael it is). The two will do their best to provide you with some hope going into next season, break down the latest coaching changes, and Cory struggles with some unwanted gas (no context needed). Enjoy!

This week, Michael and Cory were joined by Falcons’ legend and former All-Pro running back, Michael “The Burner” Turner. We checked in with Turner to see what he’s been up to since retiring in 2012, what differences he sees in Matt Ryan this season, and we get his take on which team would win: the ’12 Falcons or the ’16 Falcons. Enjoy!

There are some life moments that are so memorable and significant that you never forget where you were when they happened. Some quickly come to mind for me. The announcement that Osama Bin Laden was killed. Superstorm Sandy. The Bleacher Report publication of “What Happened to Falcons QB Matt Ryan?”

Two of the most vocal Matt Ryan doubters/haters on Twitter during recent seasons have been @SwiftHitter and @lindseyyok. Attempting to engage in any kind of Ryan-related discussion with either individual was a pointless effort, typically met with responses emphasizing that Ryan sucks in the playoffs and throws interceptions, or how he wasn’t #elite like Joe Flacco or as good as Andy Dalton.
With Matt Ryan about to play in the Super Bowl and just named Most Valuable Player, it seemed as good a time as any to collect and relive his prominent critics’ tweets from the last five years.
Presented below in reverse-chronological order without commentary, because why mar fine art with commentary?
In this episode, Michael, Cory, and our guest Allen Strk of The Falcoholic break down the incredible win over Green Bay, matchups to watch in the Super Bowl, and whether we’d rather win the big game in a blow out or a last-second, heart-attack inducing way.

The Rise Up Reader podcast returns with another episode, and this time Michael and Cory are joined by long-time Falcons’ analyst and friend, Aaron Freeman of falcfans.com.
In this episode, we break down the biggest takeaways from the big playoff win against the Seahawks, talk about what to expect against Green Bay, and play another round of “Would You Rather”. Are you taking Matt Ryan or Aaron Rodgers in the final minute to win the game? Join the conversation by commenting below.

The Falcons wasted another top-10 pick. He isn’t strong enough to compete in the NFL. I wanted the local RB Todd Gurley. Vic Beasley is a bust. That is what was said prior to the 2016 season after just one professional year in the NFL for the eighth-overall pick in the 2015 draft.
The Atlanta football Falcons can win the Super Bowl this year.
Go ahead and knock on wood, and then get back with me.
Done? Ok good – the Falcons can seriously win the Super Bowl this year.
Ok, go ahead – knock on wood again. I’ll wait.
Ok, you’re back? Good. Change of pace.
If they make it there, the Falcons won’t win a playoff game – at home or away – if they play like they did on Sunday against a possible playoff opponent like Philadelphia.
