Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! We’re officially halfway through the week, which means game day is only a few days away. As the Falcons gear up for the Buccaneers, there’s a definite split within the fan base. On the one hand, a healthy faction loves watching the Falcons beat up on divisional opponents. And on the other hand, there are those that can’t stand watching the Falcons draft position plummet. The only solution is to have these two groups fight to the death. We’ll announce a date, time, and place for this battle royale shortly.

The playoffs are still 6 regular season games away. And believe it or not, the Falcons aren’t mathematically eliminated ... yet. But that doesn’t mean the odds are good.
The Falcons re-signed Austin Larkin yesterday. You’ll remember Larkin from the preseason, wherein he wooed the coaching staff only to find himself on the chopping block when the regular season kicked off. Speaking of pass rushers, Falcons edge Takk McKinley was salty at the offensive lineman who arguably caused his shoulder injury on Sunday; and he took to Twitter to tell everyone about it.
There were a lot of hat tips to give out and not much head scratching following Sunday’s win. And thank goodness for the lack of head scratching, because dry scalp is no fun and we’ve been scratching our head incessantly this season.
In this week’s podcast, David Walker and company answered the question everyone is asking: are the Falcons legit? In short, yes, but unfortunately it’s too little, too late, which makes the current winning streak a double edged sword. In any case, our staff had some thoughts about Sunday’s game. You should read them.
Last but certainly not least, let’s talk snap counts. They are illuminating, and the Falcoholic himself broke down this week’s snap counts for your reading enjoyment.
