Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Sept. 18th

Fact: Isaiah Oliver resides high above the mucky muck in a castle made of clouds

Winning is fun, and let’s be honest, the Falcons won an exciting game 72 hours ago. Given that the Falcons are now on top (three-way tie!) of the highly competitive NFC South, we all needed some time to brag, boast, and get over our hangovers. In short, yesterday was our last day to hype and discuss the much-needed victory over the Eagles. Now we’ll move on to bigger and better things (i.e., our impending demolition of what’s left of the Colts organization).

Links for me, links for you, here are some links, now scream wahoo!

Let’s run it back one more time

Our fearless leader broke down the snap counts from Sunday’s win. Isaiah Oliver somehow played more defensive snaps than anyone, proving the Falcons coaching staff has a lot of faith in the second year cornerback. Allen Strk explained how Dirk Koetter and his merry band of pass-happy gnomes executed their game plan to pull off a win and Carter Breazeale brought us his hat tips and head scratchers. Evan Birchfield targeted Jake Matthews, naming him last week’s “brother of the week.” And David Walker’s post-game podcast is full of fresh baked, organic takes.

Roster moves on roster moves on roster moves

The Falcons did some roster shuffling yesterday, officially cutting ties with defensive lineman Austin Larkin and tight end Carson Meier. The Falcons need a backup punter until Matt Bosher’s groin heals, so they went out and got one.

An interview with one of the greatest to ever play the game

Falcons alumnus Mort Andersen did an interview with our own Kevin Knight recently. In part one of the interview, Mort talks kickers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and tells us what it was like for him personally to get enshrined in Canton. You won’t want to miss this interview; that is, unless you hate the Falcons and living legends, which would be ... well, weird.
