NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With under two weeks left until the official start of Falcons training camp, it’s time to start our roster preview series on the Falcoholic Podcast. Jeanna Kelley and I are joined by fellow editor Kevin Knight to talk about the most important position in sports: QB.

Yes, we all know that Matt Ryan is going to be the starter unless something goes horrifyingly wrong. But what kind of season do we think he can have? Will going through another change at offensive coordinator create a bump in the road for the 14 year veteran?

We discuss all of this and more, including:

  • Why Arthur Smith’s offense may be a perfect fit for what Ryan does best as a QB
  • Matt’s incredible durability over his career and why losing him means a dramatic drop off in quality
  • Why A.J. McCarron is not a QB to get excited about, but Feleipe Franks could be someone to watch
  • The overall optimism for the position heading into the season

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