"The 2015 NFL season is a week away from opening day and excitement wraps up. There is still a full slate of final preseason games to play and some more cuts to be made, but those involve fringe players for the most part and each team’s outlook for the season seems to be set in place."

Falcons beat Ravens: Post-game recap — Dave Choate of The Falcoholic

"The Atlanta Falcons defeated the Baltimore Ravens 20-19 in their fourth and final preseason game tonight. The Ravens mercifully went for two after a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Had they converted, they would’ve won 21-20, handing the Falcons their third preseason loss."

Watch: Justin Hardy spins away for 70-yard punt return —

"Watch as rookie receiver Justin Hardy breaks a tackle and spins away for a 70-yard punt return, almost taking it to the house. Who needs Devin Hester?"

"While keeping Jon Asamoah as quality veteran depth makes sense, a trade also would. It would seem odd for the team to not dress Asamoah, who is by all indications healthy enough to play, if they didn’t have something in the works."

Justin Blalock: Falcons letting him go a mistake? — John Buhler of ATL All Day

"Justin Blalock was a prominent piece of the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive line the last eight seasons, starting 125 career games with the Dirty Birds."
