Fact: Matt Ryan’s eye black applies itself

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! What’s on the agenda today? We’re day drinking again and we’ve put together every puzzle in the house. These are the days of our lives.

Our links are lightly breaded with cornmeal and deep fried. Try them with mustard; you won’t regret it!

We got some more details about Todd Gurley’s now official 1-year contract. We also got together to watch the 1998 NFC Championship Game and it was glorious. Looking back at that game, it’s hard to imagine a more heart-stopping series of events.

The NFL Draft is moving forward, albeit in digital fashion. And speaking of the draft, apparently these player-commissioner virtual meetings between Commissioner Goodell and various prospects aren’t happening. But hey! The draft is something to look forward to as you mow your lawn for the 7th time in a month.

There’s a decent chance the Falcons decide to draft a cornerback in the first round of this month’s draft. Whether you agree with that decision or not, you should book up on the various cornerback prospects that might comprise a short list on the Falcons draft board. Falcohics, meet Clemson CB A.J. Terrell. He’s pretty good at football. “But Jaaaaames, I’m losing track of all these dang prospects!” Don’t worry, I’ve got you, “fam.” (I’m told the kids are saying such things these days.) Check out our prospect tracker. Read up on these guys. Bookmark it. You won’t regret it.

3 Falcons got some honors this week — can you guess who they are? (Spoiler alert: All 3 are well-deserving.)
