Once an NFL player retires or moves on with their career, we rarely hear about their future ventures. Some start organizations to give back to their community; others start business ventures, but we rarely see former NFL players star in a Netflix TV series. Well, former Atlanta Falcons linebacker Brandon Copeland hopes you tune in to the new Netflix show, “Buy My House.” Buy My House: The ‘Shark Tank’ of Real Estate The show’s premise is similar to ABC’s hit show ‘Shark Tank.’ There are four real estate investors – identical to the “sharks” on Shark Tank – and hopeful…

The 2016 Atlanta Falcons had one of the greatest offenses of all time. They did everything right; every week of the season, they’d light up the scoreboard, and the defense wasn’t elite but better than average. The 2016 Atlanta Falcons finished the season 11-5, and after winning the NFC Championship, they had a date with the New England Patriots. I refuse to talk any further about that season, but in my opinion, that team was one of the greatest never to finish the job. It’s been 2,025 days since the final snap for the 2016 Falcons; almost all players have…

The Atlanta Falcons are a weird team. After losing their franchise quarterback and best wide receiver for a year, there are a lot of new faces with chips on their shoulders. On paper, the roster has talent, but most NFL analysts don’t see it to be enough even to amass five wins this year. Well, what do they know? Let’s take a deeper dive into the Falcons’ schedule. | (1-0) | Week 1: Atlanta Falcons 27 vs. New Orleans Saints 23 | I like the Falcons’ chances in Week 1 against their division rivals. The thing about rivalry games is…

The Falcons are revamping pretty much every position on their football team. Whether via the draft, free agency, or developing their youth, Atlanta looks to get younger and, hopefully, better. One position group that desperately needs improvement is the entirety of the Falcons’ defense. In the last four seasons, the Falcons have ranked in the bottom ten of the league in terms of total points allowed. The Falcons went defense-heavy in the draft and free agency, hoping to revamp the defense for this upcoming year. Now, as the offseason training continues, two new Falcons have left a positive impression on…

Kyle Pitts. He’s fantastic, isn’t he? I remember last year when the Falcons had the fourth overall pick, and some fans were not thrilled that Atlanta selected the Florida product. He’s blossomed into a top-five tight end in the NFL since then. Even though there aren’t many “superstar” tight ends in the NFL, progression like that at any position is remarkable. It makes you wonder how much better the 21-year-old can get. And, well, some people are wondering. By some people, I mean Mario Puig of Rotowire’s Fantasy Football podcast “Fantasy Sports Radio.” https://twitter.com/SiriusXMFantasy/status/1545839179220803584 While talking about Kyle Pitts and…

It’s no secret that the Atlanta Falcons struggled last season. The offense was subpar, and it was the first time in a decade that Matt Ryan didn’t hit 4,000 passing yards. In previous years, the offense could rely on Matt Ryan – he was one of the most consistent quarterbacks in NFL history. Yet even through all that, the Falcons offense was underachieving in recent years. It turns out that no matter how stable your passing game may be, every NFL team needs a reliable run game; the Falcons have lacked that for years. Cordarrelle Patterson offered relief this season…

The Atlanta Falcons are in a rebuild. It’s obvious to even the most casual of NFL fans. The Falcons are following the typical rebuild cycle. They’ve tried contending and almost achieved it. For the sake of Falcons fans, I won’t go into the “almost” win. The championship window closed, and it closed fast. Atlanta traded away Falcons legends Matt Ryan and Julio Jones for draft capital. After flooding the roster with young/unproven talent this offseason, Las Vegas – and the rest of the NFL world – has meager expectations for the Atlanta Falcons this year. Around this time, particular sportsbooks…

Even in his short NFL career, Marcus Mariota is a seasoned veteran. The 28-year-old quarterback is on his third team and playing for his sixth head coach. Through a career of ups-and-downs, the former second overall pick has been guided by numerous coaching regimes, which makes it notable when Mariota comments on the greatness of his current coaching staff. He’s only been on the team for about four months, but he’s already sharing positive comments on the coaching methods of his new mentors. Marcus Mariota: “I think they challenge us.” That was in response to the Falcons’ coaching’s impact on…

The Falcons have made notable moves this offseason. Most notably, trading Matt Ryan to Indianapolis and selecting Drake London in the NFL Draft. On the flip side, there have been moves that don’t seem as notable. Signing Lorenzo Carter may strengthen the defensive line, but very few expect him to put up double-digit sacks on the year. However, according to Scott Bair – Digitial Managing Editor for the Falcons – there’s one under-the-radar acquisition that he believes will transform the Falcons offense into something special: Bryan Edwards Gets Traded to Atlanta On May 16th, 2022, Bryan Edwards received a phone…

A new era is upon Atlanta sports. For the lifelong sports fans of the Georgia capital, it’s been a painful few years. Witnessing the departure of multiple sports legends, such as Matt Ryan of the Falcons, or Freddie Freeman of the Braves, fans are waiting for the next chapter of Atlanta sports. The superstars above are content in their new threads, but there’s one ex-Falcons great who hasn’t found career stability since the last time he wore the red and black. He now sits in the confines of a dull free agency period, with multiple teams looking in his direction,…
