Our ongoing podcast series reviewing the Thomas Dimitroff years for the Falcons continues today with his efforts in the 2018 season. The follow up to his frustrating 2017 season featured a new contract for QB Matt Ryan, sensible moves in free agency and an underrated draft class.
To examine this season, I was joined by Andrew Hirsh, formerly of AtlantaFalcons.com and a former writer from this very site. We talked about the moves made by the GM and why this season was actually a fairly good one for the former GM.
- The surprise of drafting Calvin Ridley in the first round and why going BPA has ultimately paid off
- The disappointing careers of Isaiah Oliver and Deadrin Senat and why 2021 may be their last chance to turn their careers around
- Losing so much defensive depth and how it hurt even more with the rash of injuries in 2018
- The really good day 3 picks in this draft class resulting in Ito Smith, Russell Gage and Foyesade Oluokun
- So much more
