Fact: Game of Thrones is loosely based on Matt Bryant’s life

Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! We’re less than 2 months removed from the beginning of the NFL’s regular season. We think. There are all kinds of logistical hurdles standing in the way, but trust Roger Goodell and his merry band of NFL execs, it’s all going to work out!

Our links are hand-molded then placed in a thermally insulated chamber to harden.

Player profiles: Keanu Neal

Kevin Knight’s player profile series will tell you everything you need to know about the composition of this team. Next in line is Keanu Neal. Neal has a lot to prove in 2020, but he does appear determined to regain his status as one of the leaders of the Falcons defense. Let’s hope he does just that.

Matt Ryan passing yardage

Oddsmakers are predicting that Ryan and Pat Mahomes will lead the league in passing yardage in 2020. Now tell me again why Ryan sucks, is overrated, etc.?

Madden rankings

The geniuses that come up with Madden ratings have decided that Matt Ryan is the 7th best quarterback in the NFL, rating him lower than Drew Brees and Tom “Avocado Ice Cream is Life” Brady. I swear they deliberately rate Falcons on the low side to ruin my day. Or in the alternative, they have no idea what they’re talking about. You decide.

All-decade defense and special teams

The Falcons announced their all-decade defense and special teamers. The guys that made the cut all made significant contributions to the Falcons during their respective tenures in Atlanta. Feeling nostalgic? The Falcoholic himself broke down the selections. Give his piece a read.
