NFL: Pro Football Hall of Fame Game-Atlanta Falcons vs Denver Broncos Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Dave Choate - the Falcoholic himself - joined Jeanna Thomas and I as we begin our off-season podcast recap of the Falcons 2019 season. For this week, we looked back at the offense and what they accomplished in the lost 7-9 season.

Some of the topics include:

  • Whether or not Atlanta truly intended to keep the “Shanahan style” of offense, or if Dirk Koetter really did just kill it first thing
  • Why the Falcons move away from play action hampered the entire offense
  • The performance of the offensive line, including free agents like James Carpenter and Jamon Brown
  • The drafting of Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary and how they did this year
  • Matt Ryan’s statistically fine 2019 and why it was still a step back for him
  • The emerging receiving corps and why fans should be excited about Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage going into 2020
  • The excellence of Austin Hooper and why he should absolutely be resigned by Atlanta
  • The running back rotation and why we may not be able to move on from Devonta Freeman just yet
