Falcoholic Podcast: Grading the 2021 offense

Is this unit good enough to compete in 2021?

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

When the Falcons took Kyle Pitts at 4 in the 2021 draft, there was a sense that the team could potentially field a very dangerous offense as soon as this year. Some additional picks for the offensive line showed a commitment to fortifying the offense as much as possible, even if it may take some time for those investments to pay off.

So, can they do it? Can this offense be potent in 2021? We discuss this and hand out positional grades in our latest podcast with Jeanna Thomas, Matt Chambers and me.

Topics include:

  • Being mostly comfortable with Matt Ryan, but having hesitation due to yet another offensive scheme change
  • The backup QBs and why no one feels good about these guys if Ryan goes down
  • The relative optimism about the running backs, even if there’s not a “Derrick Henry” on this team
  • Looking forward to the combo of Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst and why you should never take fantasy advice from me (seriously, don’t ever)
  • The dangerous falloff in quality after receivers Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage
  • The numerous questions around the offensive line
  • So much more
