NFL: Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

When we originally scheduled this podcast, the news about Falcons receiver Julio Jones had not come out yet. That said, this particular podcast feels like the kind of distraction we need as Atlanta fans wait to see what does (or doesn’t) unfold over the next week or two.

I was joined by Jeanna Kelley and Tori McElhaney of The Athletic to quickly touch on the Julio situation and primarily focus on our random predictions for the Falcons upcoming season. Some of these predictions are serious and some are ... not so much. With all the weeping and gnashing of teeth, we hope the humor here will be a nice break.

Some of the topics discussed:

  • Tori’s prediction for the spiritual successor to “D-Block” and why it could be just what this particular group of defenders needs
  • Not one, but two separate predictions for kicker Younghoe Koo
  • A new milestone statistic for Matt Ryan that he’ll potentially hit in 2021
  • A Dr. Seuss rhyme about ... quads?!?
  • So much more

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