Y’all had some questions this week as we look toward Sunday’s matchup against the Commanders. Let’s get right into it.

FalconFanMainer kicks us off with a question that’s got to be on everyone’s minds. It’s surely been on mine. When the heck are we going to see Cordarrelle Patterson making an impact on the field?

Now that Ridder is clearly a pro bowl caliber QB (haha),when are we going to see CP84 back in regular action, terrorizing opposing DLs? Nobody likes to tackle him. I think this element has been missed.

A bright spot in recent middling-to-bad seasons has been the resurgent play of the Falcons’ Joker, Cordarrelle Patterson. Early in the season he was nursing a thigh injury, but he’s been off the injury report, off the inactives list and yet only has seen the field in limited action in two games, notching one single catch against the Texans for seven yards.

Patterson’s versatility as a pass-catcher and a dominating runner who’s damn near impossible to bring down would be incredibly valuable in this offense. I don’t know if he isn’t fully healthy and that’s keeping him on the sideline or if Arthur Smith is having trouble figuring out how to get him opportunities with so much skill-position talent on this roster. But incorporating more Patterson can’t hurt, and I really hope that’s something we see against the Commanders.

Matthew Muthafalc'n Ryan will be in the booth calling the game on Sunday!!
That is all...
I Question...Nothing!

Obviously there’s no question here, but I just wanted to note that I’m super-excited about this!

Wonder if Jeanna is gonna pick against the Falcons for like the 3rd straight week….

I’m having an abysmal year with my picks so far, and I’m going for the reverse jinx here. If I pick a team, they’re bound to lose, so I’m doing all of us a favor.

Jenna, if Kyle Pitts fell in a forest, would Coach Smith know he fell?

Arthur Smith would probably tell us that only fantasy guys are worried about Kyle Pitts falling in the woods.
