Quizz is steady and assignment sure. Coaches like that. Antone Smith is doing well. Look for him to have a big exhibition season.
He might have a little gas left in the tank. Might as well find out at this point.
The Falcons will work the wire, but I think linebacker is the major area of concern. They like their plan to play three and four wide receivers more.
I'm going 8-8, 9-7 right now.
Tay (that's what we called him when played QB for the Spartans) is doing well. They like his size. He's studying hard in the class room and now has to impress on the field. If he can't make the team, perhaps he could help on the practice squad.
He has looked good, but I worry about his toughness after seeing him complain about getting popped by a linebacker at Friday Night Lights. You never expect much from rookies. Whatever they can contribute is "extra."
Yes. Especially, if the owner called out his team for letting Matt Ryan get popped last year.
Pretty sure, he meant "contenders." Keep it moving.
Five things to watch story -->http://www.myajc.com/news/sports/football/5-things-to-watch-in-the-falcons-exhibition-opener/ngxTJ/#6986bc03.257071.735453
If the offensive line can pass protect if Matt Ryan is in an obvious passing situation. Also, I'd like to see a pass rush.
No very impressive. He's coming off an undisclosed injury and is coming along slowly. If he catches 30 passes and 5 touchdowns, that would be awesome. He'll be a red zone threat.
He is coming back -- early -- from a major injury as is expected to struggle. He's coming along. Osi Umneyiora is a pro and Jonathan Massaquoi is looking really good. Also, Malliciah Goodman has drawn some high praise from defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. Told the media that he was "a player to watch."
I doubt that he would get first team reps. He's the 6th receiver, tops behind Roddy White, Julio Jones, Harry Douglas, Devin Hester and Courtney Roby. He may get some second-team action.
Q: Do you think the Falcons can be containers for the NFC South title this year? – Mr. Bellows
A: DLED: Yes, but they need to get off to a good start.
Everyone is pleased with where he's at his in recovery, but Terry Robiskie said he wasn't 100 percent. They will likely keep bringing him along slowly.
Q: Center seems weak still. Thoughts on Hawley and info on how James Stone is looking. –Wayne
A: DLED: Joe Hawley is doing well. He can get out and help in the run game and is firm in pass protection. He reminds me of Todd McClure. I’m looking forward to seeing James Stone tonight.
How's everyone today. Looks like we've got 30 folks watching. Send along some questions!!!
Hey folks, got to board for Canton. Will post some things from the yellow jacket dinner tonight. Please give us a twitter follow @DOrlandoAJC
Runs hard, cuts well and catches the ball away from his body out of the backfield. He's a great kid, Warrick Dunn has told me.
Do some scouting for us once the college games start!!!
I don't know. Those HBO guys are working hard. though.I think they'll come off as a corporate, take care of business crew. Perhaps, maybe a little paranoid and quirky, like most teams.
