Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! It’s a brand new day. Time to sober up and set aside yesterday’s drunken shenanigans. Or not.

We’re in the middle of a pandemic. That makes preparation for an NFL season seem daunting under the best possible circumstances. How is this going to work? What if players get sick? These are the questions we’ll look to answer in the weeks ahead. But for what it’s worth, the NFL is already eyeing a fairly aggressive testing regimen.

Franchise quarterback Matthew Thomas Ryan is still producing like a spring chicken. At some point, he will slow down and start to regress to the mean. But for now, he’s elite. That’s why he has more 300+ yard passing games (19) than any other NFL quarterback over the last 2 seasons. But can he keep up that pace in 2020? It’s a fair question, and the Falcoholic himself tried to answer it.

Our “Forgotten Falcons” series has been highlighting some fantastic Falcons alums, and with any luck, you haven’t missed it. Yesterday was Scott Case’s turn. Case, a true franchise great, often gets lost in the fray. Give Eric Robinson’s piece a read; you won’t regret it.

We’ve been taking a long hard look at the state of the NFC South, a division that may be among the league’s most competitive in 2020. But which NFC South team has the best defensive line? (Spoiler alert: It sure as heck isn’t the Falcons.)
