FalcFans Podcast – Ep. 140 “Don’t Jump Off a Bridge Just Yet”

FalcFans PodcastFalcFans Podcast

Allen and I are joined by Score Atlanta’s Craig Sager Jr. and Rise Up Reader’s Michael Aprile to recap the Atlanta Falcons Week Nine loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Craig vents about Dan Quinn’s poor coaching decision at the end of the game that arguably cost the Falcons the game. With Craig, we discuss all of the following topics and much more:

  • The team’s limited edge rush and what they can do to improve pressure
  • Hankerson’s inconsistency versus whether he’s an asset
  • Roddy White’s role in the offense and if the team should increase their tempo
  • Devonta Freeman’s decline in production and the lack of balance offensively
  • What should have been the play call in that botched 4th-and-goal situation

When Michael joins the show (about 42:30 into the episode), we hit a few more topics. Michael gives a contrasting view on Quinn’s coaching decisions, and we get into:

  • Whether his decision to challenge the spot of the ball was an even worse decision
  • How the excitement at the start of the season raised expectations
  • Overall concerns about the offense
  • Recruiting some ex-Seahawks defenders in 2016
  • Jalen Collins’ development and how much stock anyone should put in a single play
  • Robert Alford’s future in Atlanta
  • Final thoughts on Dezmen Southward
  • Getting run over by the “Blaine Train”

Allen and I sum up the episode by reviewing a review on iTunes and make a rare Adam Jennings reference.
