Checking in on the quarterbacks in the NFC South

Sonja Greenfield, OTFB Reporter

I’ve hit the NFC North and NFC East.  This week, I head down to the durrty south.

These quarterbacks are about as stable as they get, outside of Tampa Bay, and even that’s not that truly unstable.   Despite quarterback Jameis Winston‘s issues, he’s still in the mix.

So, lets look at Winston, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, and Cam Newton and ask the question, “What will 2019 look like for these quarterbacks?”

Since I’ve mentioned Winston, let’s start with Tampa Bay.

Atlanta Falcons: 5 Quick Questions

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8 

Any team that goes up against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl immediately gains a ton of fans. The Atlanta Falcons are one such team. After leading for most of Super Bowl LI back in 2017, the Falcons lost in gut-wrenching fashion – at least most of us were wrenched.

But last season they seemed to suffer from some sort of Super Bowl Hangover. Will 2018 be the season they bounce back?

I recently met a huge Falcons fan on twitter, so I asked Angela Spencer // @AngieSpencer28 five questions and got her thoughts regarding the upcoming season…

Buffalo Is Entering Another Dimension

By Mary Pesarchick  // @HeyMom418

Bills 23 – Falcons 17

“You are about to enter another dimension.

A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. 

A journey into a wondrous land of imagination…”  

It began after the final second elapsed on the Bills 23-17 win over the (formerly) undefeated Atlanta Falcons. All around Western New York, a low murmur of voices were expressing wonderment. Disbelief. Excitement. Almost every caller to the local radio post-game shows began their comments with, “I know there’s a lot of the season left, but do you think…?”  Or, “I know I shouldn’t be getting my hopes up yet, but…” Or, “The team wasn’t supposed to be any good this year. How do you explain…?”

It does feel as if we’ve entered the Twilight Zone. Staring at the AFC East standings, seeing the Buffalo Bills, 3-1, all alone at the top of the heap, is nothing if not surreal. The previous week’s win over the Denver Broncos was a terrific accomplishment for coach Sean McDermott’s team. But getting a win on the road, against last year’s NFC Champions is something else altogether.

The Pride Report: Week 3

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //  @Mom23RN

This week, the road to Super Bowl 52 brought the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons to Detroit. This was going to be a great showing of how the 2-0 Lions would match up to some of the best talent in the division.   At first, the game almost looked like Atlanta was going to run away with it, but safety Glover Quin got the Lions back in the game with a quick pick six of Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan.  It looked like quarterback Matthew Stafford was up to his usual 4th quarter come back antics, however a crazy, arbitrary rule kept wide receiver Golden Tate from scoring a last second touchdown.  The Falcons came away with the win, and handed the Lions a heartbreaking loss.

King Of The Pride:  Safety Glover Quin.  Quin’s pick six pretty much kept the game from getting out of hand and gave life to the crowd at Ford Field.  It appeared that he came out of nowhere to intercept Ryan.  Honorable mentions go to kicker Matt Prater and corner back Darius Slay. Prater was perfect on his field goals including two from over 50 yards away.  Slay was able to pick off Matt Ryan twice in the game.  According to ESPN Stats & Info, Matt Ryan had previously gone 309 passes without an interception, but had 3 today.
