Happy Thanksgiving 2014, Falcoholics

There's a lot to be thankful for, even this year.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's Thanksgiving, a day for family, a dense singularity of calories that threatens to collapse both your best-laid dietary plans and the very earth you stand on, and maybe some football, too.

We're thankful that this team has players like Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Desmond Trufant to make it an attractive landing spot for the next Falcons head coach. We're thankful for the 2012 season and playoffs, even if they fell short of what we all hoped for. We're thankful that there are only five weeks left in this season before we have something to get genuinely excited about once more.

Above all, we're thankful for your time, your readership and your support even in a crappy, difficult season where you may be questioning your very fanhood. It means a great deal to the entire team. Even Alex Welch.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We'll have an open thread for today's game coming up shortly.
