Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Friday, Oct. 5

Takk, Steelers, and analytics, oh my!

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

You can’t stop the links.

Calvin Ridley is bringing home the awards

Remember after week 1 when Calvin Ridley got zero action against the Philadelphia Eagles? Things have changed a lot since then. Ridley brought home the coveted Offensive Rookie of the Month award for his 264 received yards and 6 (!) touchdowns.


Ridley looked far and away the top offensive playmaker of the draft so far. He’s so good that those goons over at Cat Scratch Reader want Panthers fans to leave D.J. Moore alone! They think comparing Moore, taken before Ridley, is unfair. I say it’s a good comparison, especially since Ridley is so much better.

Jeanna’s on TV again for more Falcoholic content

The Falcoholic is taking over all media until you can’t escape us. Jeanna’s mailbag is again on TV and you should definitely watch for secrets to beating the Steelers.

Analytics battle! What do PFF numbers show us about Sunday’s game?

David Walker looked at PFF’s numbers to find out which positions have the edge. Of course, if you’ve seen the Steelers defense, you probably have a good sense where this is ending up.

Biggest homers: New Orleans Saints fans

SB Nation polled NFC South fans, and you won’t believe which team has the biggest homers. No wait, you probably don’t need to see the results to know it’s Saints fans.

The sacrifices are still churning

After another tough loss, we sent Desmond Trufant to the ol’ lake of fire.

Takk respects Ben Roethlisberger, but definitely not too much

Dan Quinn thinks loud music is getting in the way of the defense

Apparently Deion Jones was so good that he was able to get the plays out to other players with the practice DJ. The defense has looked lost, so the DJ is the first thing to go. I mean, it can’t get worse, can it?
