Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! It’s good to see you. And congrats on making it halfway through the week; that’s no easy feat. But seriously, would it kill you to call us once in a while? You worry us half to death, ya know!

By the way, our links are made of the finest poplar they sell at Home Depot—hand whittled too!

Charles Harris

Next up in Kevin Knight’s player profile series is edge Charles Harris. The Falcons are hoping Harris can find his sea legs in Atlanta and finally turn a corner in his development. The skillset that made him a first round draft pick in 2017 is definitely intriguing. Heck, if he can even just contribute as a solid rotational piece, he’d prove to be a great low risk, high reward signing by the Falcons front office.

Would you go to a game right now?

With the regular season just 18 days away, it’s time to start thinking about the logistics of games where fans will be present. Obviously there are inherent risks because, ya know, a global pandemic has derailed life as we knew it. But it turns out most fans aren’t too worried about attending games: A new survey suggests two thirds of Falcons fans are presently comfortable attending games in person.
