Hi all Takkarist McKinley Falcons Jersey , and eason, we’ll be taking our links to twice per week, meaning we’ll post the best links we’ve collected on Monday and Thursday. Once we get closer to the season (read: training camp), you’ll see us return to a more regular schedule.The Saints are not coming to AtlantaAs the season wore on and the Falcons were clearly not going to make the Super Bowl, everyone’s enduring fear was that we’d be stuck with the Saints instead. There’s no way to sugarcoat how awful it would have been to see New Orleans in Atlanta for a couple of weeks and potentially winning it all in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, so it is a huge relief that did not come to pass.As Jeanna Thomas writes, it sure is a real shame. Unfortunately, the Patriots are in for a third straight year and we’re going to have to deal with Bradymania in all its glory, but that’s a small price to pay for not having to worry about the Saints.Foye Oluokun’s promiseWe’ll be talking more about him in our linebacker review and look-forward today, but Foye Oluokun deserves to be called out as one of Atlanta’s 2018 bright spots. The sixth round rookie looked like a far better player than former third rounder Duke RIley and wound up taking his job outright partway through the season, and depending on what Atlanta does between now and the end of August, he could enter 2019 as a nominal starter. The Falcons need to keep finding Oluokuns late to keep the team humming, if you can call what they did in 2018 humming. Don’t be afraid of DTYesterday Elite Takkarist McKinley Jersey , I argued (to somewhat justified ridicule) that the Falcons have a strength at defensive tackle but shouldn’t be afraid to draft one in the first round come April. I did not mean to imply they’re elite there, but Grady Jarrett is terrific, Jack Crawford is at the very least a very tenacious pass rusher and Deadrin Senat has talent, and it’s certainly a better group than what Atlanta boasts at defensive end. If they have a chance to get an elite talent they like anywhere along the defensive line, I hope they do so.Ed Oliver a draft target? I wrote that in part because of Mel Kiper’s mock draft, one of a few to link Houston’s Ed Oliver to the Falcons. Oliver is one of my favorite players in this class and exactly the kind of athletic freak who should intrigue Atlanta, but there’s no guarantee he won’t end up among the top ten players selected. I’ll keep that torch burning as long as I can, though. ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Ryan could find no easy answers after the Atlanta Falcons‘ offense hit a new low in their fourth straight loss.Ryan threw for only 131 yards in Sunday’s 26-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens , his lowest total of his 11-year career in a game he has started and finished.The Falcons (4-8) have been held below 20 points in each of their four straight losses. The lack of production against the Ravens stands out even in that string of offensive ineptitude.Atlanta managed only 131 total yards, its fewest in almost 20 years. One of the team’s two touchdowns came on Vic Beasley Jr.’s 74-yard fumble return.“I think today is the most disappointing because we never really got anything going,” Ryan said. “That makes it tough when you really are not moving it and you’re letting them kind of dictate the game. That’s a tough pill to swallow.”One week after the team’s top healthy running backs, Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith, combined for six yards on 12 carries in a 31-17 loss at the Saints Game Takkarist McKinley Jersey , the ground game again was a major disappointment.Smith led Atlanta with 22 yards on seven carries. Coleman managed on eight yards on six carries.It would be tempting to blame the lack of run production on the absence of Devonta Freeman, but he has been on injured reserve since the second week of the season . The Falcons seemed to have overcome Freeman’s groin injury, as well as season-ending injuries to starting guards Brandon Fusco and Andy Levitre, until their recent collapse.Atlanta was held to 44 total yards, including 3 yards on the ground, in the second half when the Ravens outscored the Falcons 16-6.“We are not opening the holes and the spacing is not on the level that we have come to understand is acceptable,” coach Dan Quinn said. “We have to continue to dig in and find ways because that part of the game has to be … working the way we need to. When that is out of whack, you become one-dimensional.”The Falcons tweaked their offensive line, moving Zane Beadles into the starting unit ahead of Ben Garland at right guard. Quinn said he didn’t know if he’ll stick with that change and acknowledged his options are limited.Atlanta can’t finish with a winning record. The Falcons show little resemblance to the team that made two straight playoff appearances, including a Super Bowl berth following the 2016 season.They hadn’t been held to so few total yards since Dec. 12, 1999, when they had 105 in a loss to San Francisco.Now, the Falcons are simply trying to survive. Ryan has been sacked nine times in the last two weeks Takkarist McKinley Womens Jersey , including three by the Ravens.“We just aren’t making plays,” left tackle Jake Matthews said. “We are just not putting ourselves in good situations. Obviously, it’s showing. We have a lot of things to get better at.”Matthews said the Falcons options are to “either throw in the towel or go back to work and get better. I know the mentality of this team. I already know what we are going to do. We are going to work at it and get better at it until it’s right.”Quinn was grim after leaving his players following the loss.“Tough locker room, and it is because they care like they do,” said Quinn, in his fourth season. “I told them this is as challenged as we’ve been in a while, certainly since I’ve been here.”As is his custom, team owner Arthur Blank attended Quinn’s postgame news conference. Afterward, he said Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff still have his trust.“It’s difficult for our fans, difficult for our organization,” Blank said. “… We’re in a difficult time right now, but they’ll figure out the answers. … I haven’t lost any faith in coach Quinn or Thomas.”
