Who’s excited to watch some preseason football this weekend? I know I am. Sure, it’ll be ugly at times, and we should temper our expectations and our reactions to what we see in the first week of the preseason, but it’s our first shot to see this 2023 team in action, and I can’t wait.

The Falcons have a handful of guys who could fill that role, and it remains to be seen who convinces the coaching staff that they’re the best fit. But that won’t stop us from having opinions.
