NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

In a follow-up to our previous podcast covering the PFF scores for the Falcons offense through the first half of the season, we now cover those grades for the Falcons bottom-ranking defensive unit. In this episode of the podcast, we cover:

  • The top 5 and bottom 5 players and where guys like Grady Jarrett, Deion Jones, Vic Beasley and others rank overall
  • How young players like Isaiah Oliver, John Cominsky and Kendall Sheffield are faring so far
  • The most surprising names - for better or worse
  • The disturbing trend in the secondary that points strongly to coaching issues
  • Why there are several young guys that fans should not write-off just yet

As always, you can find the podcast wherever fine podcasts are available or you can listen below:
