Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! It’s good to see you. Really, it is. You look a little skinny, and pale. Here, have a smoothie! (Spoiler alert: It has spinach in it. Lots of iron. You need more iron in your diet.)

We like to season and lightly bread our links before frying them in peanut oil. They pair well with homemade organic ketchup.

Jesse Tuggle

We’ve been taking a closer look at some Falcons records because, well, we’ve got nothing better to do. Next up is Jesse Tuggle’s tackles record. Tuggle not only holds the recordl the next closest guy is 700 tackles behind him. In short, no one is touching that record any time soon.

Madden ratings

Madden ratings are a perpetual sore subject around here, having caused Falcoholics everywhere countless sleepness nights over the years. The latest Madden ratings are officially out, and this year is no exception. And trust us, their decision to rate long snapper extraordinaire Josh Harris 43 overall is just the beginning.

Player profiles

Ricardo Allen was next up in Kevin Knight’s player profile series. Allen is the presumptive quarterback of the defense. If he plays to the best of his ability, Allen will elevate this defense and successfully guide it through the stormy waters ahead.

Devonta Freeman

Freeman’s agent recently cut ties with him and he remains a free agent. It’s anyone’s guess how Freeman thinks his current approach will pan out. But he’s probably willing to skip a season to get back on a team on his terms.

Pivotal moments

The departure of Brett Favre undoubtedly affected the trajectory of the Falcons during the mid to late 1990s. It’s just one moment that shaped the future of this franchise, but it’s so typical of the Falcons.
