FalcFans PodcastFalcFans Podcast

Allen and I return for another jam-packed episode featuring two illustrious guests in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Jeff Schultz and ex-Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and 680 the Fan’s Brian Finneran.

First up we talk with Jeff (around the five-minute mark) about his recent article detailing the many on and off-field issues that current Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been dealing with over the past 18 months. Jeff dishes on how Roddy is trying to deal with the death of his younger brother, mother’s illness and other personal issues in his life along with seeing a huge reduction in production on the field in 2015. We also discuss:

  • Rumors centered around trading Roddy
  • How much blame Kyle Shanahan deserves for Roddy’s limited production
  • Leonard Hankerson and Shanahan’s preferences with play-calling
  • Whether Vic Beasley is a disappointment thus far in his rookie season
  • Are the Falcons still on the path to making the playoffs?

During the middle of the show (just after the 36-minute mark), Allen and I start our preview of the Falcons’ Week 10 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. During that chat, we talk about:

  • The difference in the Colts with Matt Hasselbeck at the helm
  • Whether this is a must-win game for the Falcons
  • Beasley’s move to the left side
  • Touchdown celebrations
  • Dwight Lowery’s return to Atlanta
  • J.J. Watt’s trash talking
  • William Moore’s value

We finally close with Brian (at the 1-hour mark) and hit the following topics:

  • Brian’s stint in NFL Europe and the value of a developmental league
  • Differences between the coaching staffs of Dan Reeves, Jim Mora, Mike Smith and He Who Shall Not Be Named
  • Brian’s experience trying to recover from consecutive, major knee injuries
  • Roddy’s role in 2015 and whether he has truly declined
  • Jonathan Babineaux’s resiliency
