FalcFans Podcast – Ep. 187 “The Bar is Very Low”


Allen and I preview the upcoming Week Eight matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers with our good friend, Eric Robinson of Blogging Dirty. This week’s episode includes a multitude of topics including the following:

  • (3:20) Is this a playoff preview game and whether the Packers offense is as threatening as it has been in past years.
  • (9:40) The struggles of De’Vondre Campbell last week and how Keanu Neal could help solidify the Falcons’ underneath coverage.
  • (13:50) A deep dive into whether Vic Beasley is being overrated given his recent success.
  • (22:45) Eddie Lacy’s so-called weight transformation.
  • (26:40) The release of Mike Person potentially leading to an expansion of Ben Garland’s versatility.
  • (28:20) A discussion about the future of the Falcons defensive line and which players including Ra’Shede Hageman that might become expendable come 2017.
  • (31:30) The addition of Stevan Ridley
  • (32:45) An overhyped Packers run defense contrasts with a formidable Packers pass rush?
  • (39:50) Reminiscing over Julio Jones’ performance against the Packers in 2014.
  • (41:20) Discussing whether Mohamed Sanu should be considered a bust at this point.
  • (53:00) Predictions for this weekend’s game between the Falcons and Packers.
  • (58:20) Robert Alford’s newfound avoidance of penalties.

Eric leaves at (1:01:40) and Allen and I finish the show with iTunes reviews and discuss the future of the podcast.
