The Falcoholic’s picks for Falcons vs. Eagles and other Week 1 NFL games
November 08, 2018 12:14AM
It’s finally here — real http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/matt-ryan-jersey , actual NFL football. And with the return of our beloved Falcons comes meaningful picks for this season’s games, starting with Week 1. We have a slightly different format for this year’s picks. Our staff will chime in with their predictions on all of the NFC South games as well as every primetime game in any given week. We’re also welcoming two guest pickers. One will be a blogger from the site that covers the Falcons’ opponent that week, and the other will be one of y’all, dear readers. To be selected as the guest picker for next week, all you have to do is share your picks for this slate of games in the comments. The person who gets the most correct will be the guest picker for the following week. If there’s a tie, don’t worry. I have a very scientific method for randomly selecting a winner. Last week it came down to AJ Chambers, also known as DnomiicTheFalconator, and Doc Falcon, and they tied. So I let my dog, noted Falcons fan Baxter Thomas, choose. Welcome to the party, AJ, and thanks to both of you for playing last week. This week, obviously we have the Falcons kicking things off against the Eagles on Thursday night. I don’t know if you guys know this Calvin Ridley Jersey Limited , but you may have heard that the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Well, that didn’t really influence our pickers’ decision-making process, nor did the fact that the Eagles knocked Atlanta out of the playoffs last year. An overwhelming majority is banking on an Atlanta win. Beyond that, we have a lot of faith in the Saints, and a little wishful thinking for an 0-0 tie. The Panthers, Packers, and Lions are easy favorites, and the Raiders get no respect at all around here. That happens when you trade away your best player right before the season begins. Everyone starts the season with a 0-0 record. We’re not keeping track of preseason wins and losses, thank goodness. But check back in the weeks to come to see how your favorite Falcoholic writers and our guests are faring with their picks. Here’s all of this week’s picks. The Falcoholic’s Week 1 NFL picksNameATL vs. PHITB vs. NODAL vs. CARCHI vs. GBNYJ vs. DETLAR vs. OAKNameATL vs. PHITB vs. NODAL vs. CARCHI vs. GBNYJ vs. DETLAR vs. OAKAdd yours in the comments to be in the running for next week’s guest picker.Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Thursday, Sept. 13 This is a bad week for the Falcons. A real, real bad week. We thought it couldn’t get worse than Keanu Neal gone for the season, then Deion Jones went to IR for at least half the season. We are just picking up the pieces. We asked how the hell can the Falcons replace a player like Deion Jones? The top option was Duke Riley, and as it turns out, that was correct. Riley is manning the middle of the defense http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/calvin-ridley-jersey , and we hope his crazy game speed can start to replace Jones.Are we optimistic?Not really, but it could turn out OK. As it turns out, the Falcons are moving Ricardo Allen down to strong safety, with Damontae Kazee covering deep. It’s not preferable, but should be better than the linebacker situation.Despite the injuries and the loss to the Eagles, the national media has the Falcons ranked somewhere between 6th and 11th. Respectable enough with all things considered. Atlanta will definitely need a win to maintain their spots in the power rankings.Did you know the Falcoholic has a podcast? You should because we post about it all the time. Well our midweek and post-game podcast will be a part of something called Vox Media Podcast Network. What does that even mean? It’s a mystery to everyone, but we are available on some additional platforms.Oh yeah, Devonta Freeman is “sore” and didn’t practice. If this is like all the other injuries that are nothing under Dan Quinn, Freeman may have a leg amputated. Far from a guarantee he plays against the Carolina Panthers.Wow, Matt Ryan needs to read more Falcoholic. Kurt Warner slammed Steve Sarkisian’s offense for lacking attention to detail and not playing to his players’ strengths. The Falcons already needed to bounce back from the injuries, but can they bounce back from this weak offense? We find out Sunday.
