  • (3:25) We discuss the surprising win and highlight the keys to the Falcons success this past Sunday.
  • (9:45) Matt Ryan’s interception and Kyle Shanahan’s play-calling in conjunction with the continued issues surrounding the Falcons in the red zone.
  • (14:30) Whether the Falcons need to get more size at running back as well as whether Devonta Freeman or Tevin Coleman should get more carries.
  • (31:15) What stood out on defense for the Falcons including the improved play from Kemal Ishmael.
  • (35:20) The Falcons’ current pass-rush “debacle.”
  • (47:45) Craig helps out put the Falcons-Saints rivalry into context.
  • (52:20) We learn about the greatness of the Kansas City Chiefs gameday experience.

Craig leaves (56:40) and Allen and I finish off the show by discussing Eric Weems’ big return, handling Khalil Mack and just how good Deion Jones has been so far.

  1. Love this podcast but Aaron I just don’t get you grades of the rookies!C-!?!? Jones outplayed every on the falcons and RAIDERS this past game. He wasn’t drafted to be the Lb that throws off blocks and lays people out. If the falcons wanted that they would have drafted Ragland. Quinn wanted a guy going sideline to sideline and that’s what he got. Yes he has made mistakes but mostly ones that will be fixed with more playing time. He deserves a B- imo.

    In another note I agree with a lot in this podcast, the screens in the Red Zone are a little confusing. Also at this point I’m over the pass rush talk. Imo I like RE/clayborn&freeny DT/babs, DT/Jarret& clayborn LE/ Beasley&shelby. I don’t understand the rotation at all. With most dline guys gone next year I think there will be a huge overhaul. I agree with Allen in that only jarret and Clayborn have earned spots next year

    The offensive line has looked solid other then chester. Levitre has even played much better.
