 Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper wore a smirk on his face when asked about the early-season criticism directed toward offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. "In the city of Atlanta, everyone's a critic," Hooper said. "When we were 1-4, everyone hated us. Now everybody seems to be back on the train. All we worry about is the guys who are in the building. So, we had Sark's back from Day 1. And that's all that matters: The connection we have to each other. People outside the building are always going to say what they're going to say." Said receiver Julio Jones: "For...

Falcons looking to become road warriors for rest of season

Talk all you want about Matt Ryan being on pace for 5,000 passing yards and not throwing an interception over the past five games. Those individual statistics mean little to the Atlanta Falcons quarterback. The number that matters to Ryan this week is 0-2: his team's road...

Talk all you want about Matt Ryan being on pace for 5,000 passing yards and not throwing an interception over the past five games. Those individual statistics mean little to the Atlanta Falcons quarterback. The number that matters to Ryan this week is 0-2: his team's road record as it prepares for Sunday's trip to face the Washington Redskins (5-2) at 1 p.m. ET (Fox). Sure, the 3-4 Falcons have a little momentum after winning their past two games. However, they haven't been the same team away from home, and Ryan knows it. The Falcons averaged 32.2 points per game in their first five home game...

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Today’s Early Bird Report includes the growth and success of Steve Sarkisian as offensive coordinator as well as a possible winning formula for the Falcons. Coming out of the Falcons’ season-opening loss to the Eagles, the noise surrounding Steve Sarkisian’s ability as an offensive coordinator was at an all-time high. Now, after six games, the noise is far quieter, and a compelling argument could be made Sarkisian is not getting the credit he deserves. The Falcons are currently a top-10 offensive unit in both yards gained in points scored per game, and that’s with two sub-20-point game...

Matt Ryan and the Falcons' offense came through at 'a critical time' and won the game

ATLANTA – Even on the days when the Falcons’ offense scored over 30 points and gained more than 400 yards, there was always one more play or drive that needed to be made. In their nail-biting games this season, and there have been several of those already, the offense’s ability to...

ATLANTA – Even on the days when the Falcons’ offense scored over 30 points and gained more than 400 yards, there was always one more play or drive that needed to be made. In their nail-biting games this season, and there have been several of those already, the offense’s ability to come through in those situations played a big role in deciding the outcome. During Sunday’s 34-29 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3), the Falcons needed something from their offense in the fourth quarter after slowly leaking away their 24-13 lead at halftime. Atlanta’s offense responded with a crucial 10-play, 75-yard drive that...
