Grits Blitz Update

If you frequent this website, you have probably noticed that it isn't as active as it has been for the last year and a half. In February of 2012, I partnered with a few other Falcons fans to start this website. I was born and raised in and around the city of Atlanta and have […]

Forced to step into the role of #1 receiver with the injuries to Julio Jones and Roddy White, Harry Douglas had a career day against the Tampa Buccaneers.

Defensive touchdown sparks Falcons

Earlier this month, we took a look at one of the Falcons big issues which was the defense not creating turnovers. Against the Bucs, the Falcons rectified this on their first defensive drive.

Roddy out, Darius Johnson promoted from practice squad

Roddy White sounds off on Falcons poor start

On Friday, Roddy White went on "Game Time" on 92.9 the Game with Carl Dukes and Kordell Stewart. Like you'd expect from Roddy, he spoke from his heart and had some interesting comments. Unfortunately, it appears that the 92.9 website is a bit archaic and has no audio of this conversation. Luckily, D Led was […]

The Falcons aren't that far off, but all […]


Falcons Rally Falls Short; Drop to 1-3

This seems to be the year of not finishing games for the Falcons. Falcons fans have grown use to Matt Ryan and the Falcons rallying from behind and snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. This year, they just can't seem to get over the hump. In the third quarter and early in the fourth, […]
