It has been a long ten days since we last saw our beloved Atlanta Falcons playing—and really, that game was only worth watching for the first half—but they’re back in action very soon. PRESEASON, BABY!
Today’s opponent is the Pittsburgh Steelers, a lethal offense with a defense that might round into shape this season. That makes them a solid challenge for Atlanta, albeit one without a starting quarterback, running back, or elite wide receiver going. The Falcons will be debuting Takk McKinley and getting Taylor Gabriel back on the field, potentially, so there will be plenty to watch here.
We’re about a half hour away. Join us for the game, and use this as your discussion thread. We’re looking forward to it.
