Allen and I are back to preview the Atlanta Falcons’ training camp. We have Michael Aprile, A.K.A. RiseUpReader, join us to pick out the main storylines and roster battles we’re looking forward to watching in the coming weeks.
But before we get into training camp, Allen and I give our top 15 wide receiver rankings. Listen as we disagree on where players like T.Y. Hilton, Keenan Allen and Jeremy Maclin rank as well as whether players like Percy Harvin and Josh Gordon should still be considered among the best receivers in the league given their recent issues. I give my explanation as to why Julio Jones is better than Dez Bryant and why we haven’t quite seen the best yet of A.J. Green.
When we finally get to the Falcons, Michael helps us break down the Falcons newest player in offensive tackle DeMarcus Love and whether he’s just a camp body or someone that can help the team. Some of the position battles we’re all looking forward to include: Jalen Collins vs. Robert Alford and Devonta Freeman vs. Tevin Coleman. Get our thoughts on how the offensive line might shake out, whether rookies Vic Beasley and Grady Jarrett are poised to hit the ground running this summer and whether Ricardo Allen is ready to be the starter at free safety. You’ll also here me reminisce about Jevon Kearse’s breakout performance against the Falcons from way back in 1999, whether or not some of the former Falcons from the 2010 offensive line could help this team currently, Sean Payton’s Molly addiction and whether he might be leaving New Orleans after this season and Allen and Michael share their first experiences of seeing the Falcons play live.
Then before it’s all done, Allen and I do our final commentary of the summer, this time capping off the first month of the 2012 season by talking over the Falcons’ harrowing Week Four game against the Carolina Panthers.
