They're a dink/dunk team that will rely heavily of Julio & Roddy to move the chains, with the occasional splash play from Julio. With an OL that can pass protect well, this style of offense should be highly efficient (if guys stay healthy) but will likely be easily shut down by the top tier defenses of the conference come January because it will be severely deficient in explosiveness.
I feel real bad about the Atlanta Falcons. Pudge's quote is right on the money and notice he says we could be highly efficient if we could pass protect... We Can't, and this year it will really start to effect Matt Ryan. No team stays healthy all year and Thomas D. has really let us down
on having ready reserves.
I want to say good things about the Falcons but we've entered this off season like last year was a fluke. If we had a decent lineman for every 3rd round or 4th round corner back not on the team anymore we'd be looking good!!
I'm afraid this is the year Thomas D. and Mike Smith go. Will Arthur keep them at 8-8? I really can't see it much better than that.....I've never been a NOLAN fan and to turn us into a
3-4 is not the answer in my opinion.
Well I've been wrong a lot, and hopefully this is one of those times. It seems Thomas D. saw his press clippings too much for the first 3 years; and the last 3 he's just not been an average Gm. I still have the faith IN Mike Smith but what are you going to do when the other players are better than yours?? Folks can say get more explosive but with what without blockers??
I wouldn't feel this way but I think we need more players this year than we did last year?? It
wasn't until last year that we saw the linemen Thomas D. had collected we not ready for prime time!! Who even showed promise?? I love the Falcons but can't see where the front office is getting the job done. (AGAIN) We can draft everybody but few rookies matter!!
