Pass Catching

The Atlanta Falcons have a running back in Warrick Dunn. Dunn got most of the carries in the 2004 season and had over a 1,000 yards rushing. The Falcons also have Michael Vick who acts like a running back as well, Vick himself almost had a 1,000 yards rushing last season as well.

So the question I guess is what to do with T.J. Duckett. He was mostly used in short yardage situation but only caught three passes the entire season last year. I am almost positive that Duckett will have a new role as a pass catching RB out of the back field this coming season.

Just a Thought

So how many of you crazy cats in Atlanta are real die hard Falcon fans? I was noticing that a lot of people wear a Falcons jersey (number 7). I am curious to know how many of you fans jumped on the band wagon just because first year head coach Jim Mora Jr. took his team to the NFC Championship game. How did you guys become Falcon fans and why?

Defensive Strides

Despite outside linebacker Keith Brooking having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in early April, he seem to move around well in practice. During team activities, Brooking showed now sign of pain and showed no negative effects from the actually operation. The operation cleared loose cartilage from the joint, so hopefully now we can have a healthy Brooking who dominate with his speed at his position.

A tight Situation

from Foxsports.com
TE Eric Beverly wants to prove he give the offense an extra receiver so the team would have a legitimate alternative if Alge Crumpler is hurt. Beverly arrived last year with expectations of starting at left guard. Instead, the retirement of Hunter Goodwin before the start of camp forced the team to move Beverly to a position he hadn't played in nine years. He has few troubles executing pass protections or taking on linebackers he must block on run plays, but Beverly runs deficient routes and drops too many passes in practice. Those problems must be solved before the season starts.

Is it that Secondary

from Foxsports.com
Uncertainty at right corner and both safety positions will affect his performance, but LCB DeAngelo Hall has all the tools needed to become an elite player. With 4.31 speed and a 41-inch vertical leap, Hall is an exceptional athlete whose interception total could be hindered by the team's zone scheme. Jason Webster, the right-side starter, and Kevin Mathis, who effectively filled in at both positions last year, have upside as long-time veterans, but both have a history of injuries. If Hall had more man-to-man assignments, his interceptions would increase. Unfortunately, neither safety position is settled, and coordinator Ed Donatell likes to limit the risk of a big play with lots of nickel calls and zone coverage in base schemes.
