Pudge, what are your thought on Antone Smith? I think this guy could be more then OK.
Just a thought: but what if next year, Tony decides to give it 'one more year'? If we can get a stud TE in the draft, then we cut Turner loose and move to a more 2 TE set, I dont think we need a 'bruiser' type RB in the backfield. We can kill them with screens.
Work on bulking up Snelling to take over garbage time/goal line situations and plud A Smith into Snelling's old role.
I know this is not 'optimal', but Im looking at possible scenarios.
BTW, looks like King Konz played his way into the lineup! WTG Thomas D!
On OG Peter Konz being ready:
“Well, it was a situation where (OG) Garrett Reynolds had been dealing with a back issue and had been limited in practice. You know how backs can go. One minute you can feel good and the next minute you’re feeling poorly. Peter took the majority of snaps during the week and we felt like it was time to give him the opportunity to go in there and play. I was asked yesterday after the game how Peter played. After viewing the film, I thought he had a very solid game. It was a situation where you’re a rookie and you’re playing your first game and you’re playing against a defensive line that’s very talented. Cullen Jenkins is the starter, but they rotated guys and had different guys lining up against him and I thought Peter handled it extremely well.”
On whether Konz will continue to start:
“I think that it’ll be a determined as we go through this week. I know this, we’ve got a guy that can go in and play in a big ball game that’s a rookie. That’s a positive thing.”http://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/arti ... ef655422dd
