NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Is this Falcons team legit? Many fans are wondering that after a 1-7 start looks distant compared to the two straight dominant performances against the Saints and Panthers. We discuss this on our latest postgame podcast as we recap what happened in Carolina and briefly discuss some of the trends that may point to a real turn-around for this Falcons team. Topics include:

  • Matt Ryan having one of his best games of the year, even with pressure in his face
  • The running game with Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison still being an issue
  • Whether or not the Falcons offense missed Austin Hooper in this game
  • Bounceback performances from Desmond Trufant, Ricardo Allen and the entire secondary
  • The 11 sacks in the past 2 games and why Takkarist McKinley deserves more credit than he’s getting
