Charlie is a passionate Atlanta Falcons fan from the United Kingdom. He grew up in rural Kent, a quintessential English countryside area where cricket is a more mainstream sport than American football. He fell in love with the Falcons and the NFL as a teenager as the game surged in popularity and coverage in the UK. Charlie says he’s an all-around sports junkie, and he’s fortunate to combine his love of sports with work, as he works for the Fulham Football Club. Charlie and his fiancée, who is from the United States, currently reside in London Youth Brett Favre Jersey , England. I asked Charlie some questions on the state of the franchise and some of his more personal stories as an Atlanta Falcons fan. Let’s get started.How did you become an Atlanta Falcons fan?It was around the age of 13 when my friends and I started becoming interested in (American) football. Sky Sports started showing a lot more games over here, and we all started picking teams. The first game I watched on television was the Falcons versus the St. Louis Rams, and Michael Vick was electric! Since then I’ve been hooked on the Falcons and the NFL, little did I know what I was getting myself into. I stay up late for every game. The primetime games finish at about 5:30 a.m. UK time, which can make work a struggle the next day. I’ve been fortunate enough to see the Falcons live four times and have an unbeaten record on United States soil. I was studying abroad in the U.S. in 2012 and, along with some friends, drove 18 hours from upstate New York to the Georgia Dome to see the Falcons beat the Dallas Cowboys. I also saw us beat the Eagles in Philly that year. I also made the trip for the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium against the Green Bay Packers in 2017, that was truly the experience of a lifetime! Despite everything that’s happened since I became a fan of the “Dirty Birds” I love my team and wouldn’t change anything (aside from 28-3). Who is your favorite Atlanta Falcons player of all-time?It’s a bit left field Stitched Matt Bosher Jersey , but my personal favorite player is running back Jerious Norwood! I loved his breakneck speed, ability to make defenders miss, and burst for a long touchdown run. It was a shame he was brittle and injury prone as he had such raw talent and speed. Defensively, I was a big fan of Brent Grimes when he played in the ATL. He had such a great story coming from tiny Shippensburg College via NFL Europe. I really admired his ability to make spectacular leaping interceptions and pass defenses despite his size. Although my opinion of him soured when he went to the Bucs. Matt Ryan is hands down the greatest Falcon of all time. The franchise was on its knees when we drafted him, and it will be a travesty if he doesn’t win a Lombardi. Like Evan, I was gutted when the team released Matt Bryant and I’m praying it doesn’t backfire.What are your thoughts on the 2019 NFL Draft?I liked it. Last year it felt like we were papering over cracks on the offensive line and the Lindstrom/McGary picks are a solid investment. I understand concerns over not investing a pick on the defensive line, but I’m hoping that Dan Quinn taking over as defensive coordinator will see this part of the team improve.What are you most interested about this upcoming season?The return of Dirk! I always thought Steve Sarkisian became a bit of a scapegoat and had a tough act to follow, replacing Kyle Shanahan. I really like the Dirk Koetter hire; he knows how to get the best out of Matt Ryan. I think Youth Matt Bosher Jersey , like Quinn after last season’s failures, he’s got a point to prove after being fired in Tampa Bay. If we stay healthy and the offensive line comes together, I think we can have the best offense in the league again. It’ll be great to have Ricardo Allen, Deion Jones and Keanu Neal back too! I also love that we are flying under the radar and haven’t been talked about much in the media. It was like that in 2016 and look what happened.What’s your favorite Atlanta Falcons uniform?I was a big fan of the all black alternate jerseys we wore occasionally from the early 2000s before the current throwbacks were introduced. Would love it if they were brought back.I greatly appreciate Charlie for sharing his thoughts on the Falcons and for being the focus of this week’s ‘Fan Spotlight’ article. You can find him on Twitter @CharlieHarris32, and he invites any of the UK-based readers to join the Atlanta Falcons United Kingdom Facebook community.If you’d like to be considered for a future ‘Fan Spotlight’ or know of someone who deserves to be, let me know on Twitter @EvanBirchfield. Thanks for reading! The upshot: He’s not playing in preseason and he’s not waiting for others to sign deals." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesThe Falcoholic homepageHorizontal - WhiteThe Falcoholican Atlanta Falcons communityFollow The Falcoholic online:Follow The Falcoholic on TwitterFollow The Falcoholic on FacebookLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchThe Falcoholic main menuFanpostsFanshotsLibraryFalconsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Library FalcFans Podcast on The FalcoholicContact The FalcoholicFalcons StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Falcons NewsYahoo Falcons Team PageYahoo Falcons ReportYahoo Falcons Depth ChartYahoo Falcons TransactionsYahoo Falcons PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Julio Jones talks contract, preseason ahead of Hall of Fame Game New,19commentsThe upshot: He’s not playing in preseason and he’s not waiting for others to sign deals. EDTJulio Jones is as comfortable with who he is and what he wants to do as any player in the NFL Stitched Ricardo Allen Jersey , at least to outward appearances. His comments to the media on Tuesday, which revolved around his contract, preseason and the development of young players on the roster, just reinforces that impression of him.Start with preseason. Few starters will be playing in the Hall of Fame Game on Thursday, but Julio told us he’s not going to play in preseason at all. After last year’s stellar year where Julio was not all that active for preseason, and the fact that not having him on the field allows guys fighting for roster spots to get reps, that’s hardly a concern. Dan Quinn went ahead and confirmed that, as well. So if Julio’s not playing in preseason but will be ready for the beginning of the season Youth Ricardo Allen Jersey , what’s to focus on? For most of us, that’s probably is his contract, which we’ve been told is forthcoming for a while now. The widespread expectation is that it’ll get done before the 2019 season opens, fueled by Jones’ low-key attitude toward it and Arthur Blank’s vow to get a contract hammered out, but there’s been plenty of talk in NFL media that a few elite receivers are waiting to see who gets the first big deal so they can negotiate up from there.Julio insisted that’s not happening on his end: And on the last piece, Julio made it clear that he views working with the young receivers as his major role in the summer. He singled out Christian Blake for praise—and it’s worth noting that the second-year undrafted free agent has been turning heads in camp—but said he’s particularly looking forward to seeing those receivers on the field Thursday trying to make a mark. Aside from the contract signing, it sounds like it’ll be a pretty quiet August for Julio Jones. I look forward to seeing what kind of noises he makes in September and beyond.
