Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Tuesday, Sept. 22

Fact: Matt Ryan invented sriracha mayo

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! If you’re reading this and Dan Quinn is still employed as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, something has gone horribly awry. It’s anyone’s guess how the rest of this season will play out, but there’s a good chance that it’ll be less than ideal. So buckle up, because we haven’t hit rock bottom yet.

Our links taste delicious when dipped in a nice mustard or cheese sauce.

The Falcons are the worst

Stephen A. Smith went in on the Falcons yesterday. To be sure, they absolutely deserved it. When you create the most laughable 10 seconds of game tape in NFL history, this is what you get. They literally had it coming.

Speaking of the inexplicable shenanigans that caused that Falcons loss, The Falcoholic’s recap is definitely worth a read.

Individual performances

Adnan Ikic brought us this week’s fantasy dud and stud yesterday. (Spoiler alert: both were receivers.) Who was the defensive player of the game? And who was the offensive player of the game? David Walker answered those questions so you don’t have to—you the man, David.

I broke down some of the best and worst performances from Sunday’s loss. There’s a certain individual whose first name starts with a D and last name starts Q that definitely made one of the two lists.

Making sense of this debacle

We here at The Falcoholic care about your mental well-being. We want you to be well-equipped to battle adversity and make sense of the world. And that’s why we keep our piping hot takes coming, because at the end of the day, you are our number one priority.

Cory Woodroof opined about the Falcons’ relationship with adversity. The Falcoholic tried to answer the most pressing question: Where do the Falcons go from here? And Matt Chambers reminded us that being a Falcons fan isn’t easy. In fact, it’s damn hard.

Get well soon, Kaleb

It looks like Kaleb McGary’s injury isn’t as serious as we feared. If there’s a silver lining after that embarrassing loss, it’s that. Get well soon, Kaleb.
