Any hopes of the Falcons sneaking their way into the playoffs took a major blow on Sunday with the loss to the Saints. With Drew Brees out and Taysom Hill starting his first NFL game, Atlanta had an opportunity to take advantage. They didn’t.

Evan Birchfield joined me on the podcast to recap the game and discuss a wide range of topics including:

  • Why Dirk Koetter is the biggest problem with this team right now
  • The impact of Julio Jones on the offense
  • Why Matt Ryan can’t just throw the ball away when the pocket is collapsing
  • The play of the defense and why this loss should not be pinned solely on their shoulders
  • So much more

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