The holidays are over. It’s a bummer. But the links? Well, they’re right here.

Charting the 2010’s

We rang in the 2020’s Tuesday evening, and with it meant saying goodbye to the 2010’s. So we asked you, The Falcoholic readers, to weigh in on whether you would consider this decade of Atlanta Falcons football a success, their view of a handful of players, and the outlook for the team entering 2020.

The Falcons reached an NFC Championship Game and a Super Bowl this decade, both high water marks for the franchise. So looking back on the 2010’s, how will this era in Atlanta be remembered?

Mocking the Draft

SB Nation’s premiere draft site dropped another 2020 mock draft, and this one has the Falcons landing an impressive pass rusher. Atlanta lost out on the Chase Young sweepstakes with its second half resurgence, but there are some very solid options behind the generational defender.

Falcons All-Decade team

Today we took a look at the players that would comprise the Falcons’ All-Decade team — focusing on the offensive side of the football.

Matt Ryan is of course under center in this squad, but who else made the cut?

Arrogance and Atlanta

When Dan Quinn announced that the Falcons would indeed be retaining offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter for the coming season, there was deserving backlash. Koetter’s offense lacks punch and creativity, not to mention a disturbing history of making running backs disappear.

There are a litany of reasons to cut bait with Dirk Koetter, but organizational arrogance is a prevailing one, Matt Chambers argues.
