NFL: DEC 22 Jaguars at Falcons

Our ongoing podcast series reviewing the Thomas Dimitroff years for the Falcons continues today with his efforts in the 2014 season. This season featured a team that would go 6-10, leading to the termination of head coach Mike Smith.

To examine this season, I was joined by Kevin Knight, one of our editors and the host of The Falcoholic Live. We talked about the moves made by the GM and why this season was a mix of good and horrific.

Topics included:

  • The insane contracts given to Tyson Jackson and Paul Soliai
  • The drafting of Jake Matthews and why it was a great pick and continues to be
  • The infamous Dezmen Southward draft pick and why even Wisconsin fans were stunned by the move
  • Nabbing Devonta Freeman and Ricardo Allen later in the draft and how they are a testament to this relatively good draft class
  • So much more
