New Falcons Stadium Fly-through Video! Awesome!

Posted: January 13, 2015 in Uncategorized

Start in the clouds and dive down to ground level and enter the New Atlanta Stadium via one of its vast plazas, glide around the seating bowl and peek inside suites, club lounges, concourses and plaza spaces.

 

After going 6-10 in 2014, the Atlanta Falcons have quite a few needs to fill to make it back to the playoffs. However, the team can fill some of these needs with free agents and the large amount of cash that they have under the cap.

The Falcons need to address some things for the future, though. Specifically, they must find some of the biggest pieces for their Falcons’ long-term success this year. The continued problems that were always issues under Mike Smith have to be fixed now, with this year’s draft class.

The top four needs for the Falcons draft will be ordered by whether there are current starting-caliber players at the position, whether the contract situation makes sense for a higher pick and whether the Falcons can get by with what they have at the spot for another season.

Blank: New Coach Will Have Ryan in Prime Years

There are some monumental days in Matt Ryan’s career with the Atlanta Falcons, beginning the day he was selected by the team in the first round (3rd pick overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Just more than five years later, Falcons Owner and Chairman Arthur Blank proved how much he valued Ryan, offering the franchise quarterback a five-year extension on July 25, 2013. While Blank appreciates what Ryan has meant to the organization in the past, he’s also excited to see what’s next for his star signal-caller.
