Archer’s Take: How the Falcons offense got red hot in the red zone

Falcons offensive line helped reverse red zone fortunes   If you want to boil it down to one thing, I think it was Atlanta's offensive line and their ability to control the line of scrimmage. I mentioned in 'Keys to the Game' that in the red zone it was going to be important to be able to run the ball and the throw the screens down there. That makes the defense have to draw in and stop the run, and that means they can't create problems by dropping everyone in coverage so you can't get anyone open. So I thought when you really boil it down it was the offensive line's ability against a really good defensive fron...

Tabeek: Tough loss to Eagles could be a defining moment in Falcons season

PHILADELPHIA – You know that feeling, when you know you’re right, but you can’t say it without sounding or looking foolish. Proof always helps. And when it comes to sports, stats, records or a score usually does the trick. Well on Thursday night in front of a nationally telev...

PHILADELPHIA – You know that feeling, when you know you’re right, but you can’t say it without sounding or looking foolish. Proof always helps. And when it comes to sports, stats, records or a score usually does the trick. Well on Thursday night in front of a nationally televised audience, the Falcons were this close to providing me with the perfect ammo. I was convinced of it. Right there, during the final drive, I thought the verification was going to be lit up on the scoreboard at Lincoln Financial Field for all the world to see. But on first-and-goal at the Eagles’ 5-yard line with only one second left...

Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu did a good deed in the community and didn’t want any credit or recognition for it on Wednesday. However, it didn’t go unnoticed when he paid for a birthday celebration at the Kirin House Japanese Restaurant on Olde Peachtree Road in Lawrenceville. “While dining out, several Atlanta Falcons were sitting at an adjacent table,” wrote Wayne B. Moss, a former sports reporter, NFL public relations executive and Boy and Girls Club official on his Facebook page. “No one in the restaurant recognized any of the players.

Mohamed Sanu is not a typical slot receiver, he’s ‘another cheat code’ for the Falcons

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Falcons coach Dan Quinn said that one of the best ways a player can help the team is to know their own style – and to not try to be something they’re not. “When a player knows who they are, and when a player knows not only who they are, but how to wor...

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Falcons coach Dan Quinn said that one of the best ways a player can help the team is to know their own style – and to not try to be something they’re not. “When a player knows who they are, and when a player knows not only who they are, but how to work and develop that, I think you can blow the lid off who they could be, because they’re really true to themselves,” Quinn said. Case in point: receiver Mohamed Sanu. When you think of the prototypical slot receiver in the NFL, smaller guys like Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate or Danny Amendola usually come to mind.
