Basic facts on the Falcons:
In 2017, the Falcons will have a new home, called the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The stadium includes a retractable roof and is located in downtown. According to inhabitat.com, "The new stadium will be an expansive 1.8 million square feet and will hold 71,000 seats. The main draw besides the game, however, will be the retractable roof with eight triangular petals that open by sliding apart diagonally, creating the illusion of circular motion. Inspired by the Falcon’s team logo, the architects consulted kinetic architecture consultant Buro Happold and the inventor of the Hoberman Sphere, Chuck Hoberman, to bring the architects’ dynamic vision to reality."
The idea sounds neat and Falcons fans will soon enjoy the new stadium!

Congratulations to the following players:
Todd Gurley (St. Louis) AP Offensive Rookie of the Year
Marcus Peters (Kansas City) AP Defensive Rookie of the Year
Ron Rivera (Carolina) AP Coach of the Year
Wade Phillips (Denver) AP Assistant Coach of the Year
JJ Watt (Houston) AP Defensive Player of the Year
Eric Berry (Kansas City) AP Comeback Player of the Year
Anquan Boldin (San Francisco) Walter Payton Man of the Year
Cam Newton (Carolina) AP Offensive Player of the Year, AP Most Valuable Player
This year was definitely an exciting one and these players were exceptional. I would highly suggest reading the story on Eric Berry because that man is truly a hero. I would also recommend watching Anquan Boldin's acceptance speech because the Man of the Year always has some of the wisest words to say.
