The Atlanta Falcons dropped to 4-3 after an inexplicable 33-30 overtime loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Whose stock rose and whose fell?
The man is an absolute monster. Jones caught nine passes for 174 yards and was largely the only threat on offense — especially once Tevin Coleman exited with a hamstring injury.
Add two more sacks and another force fumble for Beasley. He’s been much improved this season and has giving the Falcons a glimpse of a pass rush. Beasley’s at 6.5 sacks on the year.
I think it’s clear everyone who said Neal was a reach in the first round was wrong. He can cover and he hits like a two ton truck holding a trailer. Surely he’ll be one of the best strong safeties in the game in a couple of years.
The Falcons have to look to upgrade the free safety position in the offseason. Allen just isn’t quite there yet.
I suspect Chester will appear here a lot as the season wears on. He had two penalties (holding, false start) and gave up a sack after failing to pick up a stunt. The 11th year veteran is the weak link on Atlanta’s offensive line.
Welcome back to everyone’s hate list, buddy. That fourth down play call was absolutely brutal.
Who’s up and who’s down for you?
