Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! Can you believe the powers that be are contemplating a 16 team playoff format? Now we get to drink the Kool-Aid, holding out hope that the Falcons can somehow generate a dramatic turnaround and eek in as one of the NFC’s 8 best teams. The holidays are ruined!

We truss and skewer our links before coating them generously with our special dry rub. Then we roast them over an open flame for 3-4 hours.

There was quite a bit of chatter about the Falcons parting ways with Takk McKinley via trade, but alas, it didn’t happen. This tells me the Falcons are neither interested in a lackluster return for Takk nor ready to close the door on a future with the former first rounder.

It’s been a rocky first half, but there have been some solid individual performances. Those individual performances won’t catapult the Falcons into playoff contention. That said, there’s nothing wrong with giving some credit where credit is surely due. So this all begs an important question: Who was the Falcons MVP during the first half?

The Falcons secondary is set to get some much-needed reinforcement with the return of Darqueze Dennard from IR. Given the modified IR rules, Dennard will re-join his teammates in the not so distant future, and believe me, they need him.

How do the Falcons plan to use their defensive linemen going forward? Dave tackled the defensive line rotation so you don’t have to—thanks, Dave!

Go forth, Falcoholics. Make today count.
