Allen and I are joined by The Falcoholic’s Caleb Rutherford to discuss the Atlanta Falcons’ final cuts and preview their Week One matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During the course of our conversation, we discuss some of the following topics among several others:
- (2:30) Discussing the Falcons cuts including which ones surprised us. Including in that discussion is thoughts on players like Tyson Jackson, Levine Toilolo and Josh Perkins making the roster while players like J.D. McKissic and D.J. Tialavea did not.
- (12:35) The addition of Taylor Gabriel and what he is bringing to the table this year.
- (20:10) We begin our preview of the Falcons Week 1 matchup against the Bucs, discussing some of the key match ups including how the Falcons might handle Gerald McCoy, Doug Martin and Mike Evans as well as whether the Bucs can deal with Julio Jones.
- (39:50) How excited we are about the end of the Paul Worrilow Era and the beginning of the careers of Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell at linebacker
- (42:50) What if anything Mike Smith will bring to the Bucs defense and whether he will have any insight into deciphering the Falcons offense.
- (49:35) We make our predictions about Week 1’s outcome as well as what impact Bucs kicker Roberto Aguayo might have on the game
At (58:50) Caleb departs and Allen and I discuss the new bi-weekly format for the podcast that we intend to follow this season.
