FalcFans Podcast

Allen and I are joined by DBN Fanatics’ Nate Butler Jr. to preview the Atlanta Falcons’ upcoming Week Six battle with the Seattle Seahawks. On this episode, we hit several topics including some of the following:

  • (2:00) Most intriguing matchups this week including that between Julio Jones and Richard Sherman.
  • (4:15) Earl Thomas’ potential impact and his ability to “erase” Tevin Coleman.
  • (10:10) Between Sherman, Thomas and Michael Bennett, who is the most terrifying player on the Seahawks defense.
  • (11:40) How the Falcons receivers and tight ends not named Julio could impact the game.
  • (18:00) Reliving old Jimmy Graham nightmares.
  • (20:45) Russell Wilson’s impact and whether the Falcons pass rush can contain him better than they have against past mobile quarterbacks.
  • (28:15) Robert Alford’s issues.
  • (34:40) Ranking the Falcons’ various beat writers.
  • (37:50) Are Fat Eddie Lacy jokes still viable?
  • (39:25) Is this week’s game a big litmus test and whether the Falcons deserve more respect nationally, along with the decline of the Carolina Panthers and other issues among NFC South rivals.
  • (55:50) Predictions for this week’s game.

Nate leaves (1:01:15) and Allen and I finish the podcast by revisiting the Broncos’ offensive ineptitude from last week, discussing the greatest linebacker combination ever created and Aaron’s old twitter rants.
