Chat questions pertaining to Jamaal Anderson and Yasinskas replies in chronological order as follows:

May 22 Chat:

Justin (Atlanta, GA): Do you believe the Falcons will play last chance Jamaal Anderson more at DE or DT this year?

Pat Yasinskas: (12:46 PM ET ) DE. But they'll move him inside in their sub-package, just like they did last year

May 29 Chat:

Rob (Atlanta,Ga): Do you think that Jamal Anderson will finally have a breakout year? Or should we just label him a bust?

Pat Yasinskas: (1:12 PM ET ) Give him this season and then it's fair game to make a call.


Rob (England): Hey Pat, cheers for answering my last question! How long will the Falcons give Anderson before they pull him in favour of Davies? He had a much better than Jamaal last year, then again, so did Biermann.

Pat Yasinskas: (1:52 PM ET ) They're hoping the light comes on in camp. If it doesn't, then Chauncey gets the starting job.

June 12 Chat:

JJ (Atlanta)

Would you consider this a make or break year for Jamal Anderson? I think so

Pat Yasinskas (2:56 PM)

Without a doubt. If he doesn't produce early, they've got Chauncey Davis ready to go.

Without a doubt. If he doesn't produce early, they've got Chauncey Davis ready to go.

Jason ((Atlanta))

You've said repeatedly that the Falcons plan on giving Jamaal Anderson every opportunity to play up to his potential. How did he look in camp? How did Sidbury look? And while we're on the D-Line, does Babineaux look like he's ready to take yet another step forward?

Pat Yasinskas (1:20 PM)

Saw him getting chewed out pretty good by one of the coaches once. But that means they're still looking at him. He'll still get a chance, but don't be surprised if you see a lot of Chauncey Davis. On Babineaux, I think he's one of the most underrated players in the division. The arrival of Jerry should only help him.

Who do you think will start for the Falcons at DE opposite John Abraham on opening day, Jamaal Anderson or Chauncey Davis?

Pat Yasinskas (1:39 PM)

Think they'll open with Anderson and give him a few games. If he doesn't produce, then they make the switch to Davis.

Aug. 28 Chat:

ATLJBO (Atlanta )

What are your thoughts on Lawrence Sidbury ?

Pat Yasinskas (1:25 PM)

Lots of upside. If Anderson flops again, think you'll see Davis start and Sidbury used as situational pass rusher.

Sept. 4 Chat:

Carlton (Laurel)

Biermann looked good last night for Atlanta, Davis got paid in the off-season, Sidbury was drafted in the 3rd round. Jamal Anderson has to be concerned about making the 53 man roster, correct? If the Falcons keep 8 DL, Abraham, Davis, Babs, Jerry, Biermann, Sidbury, Lewis, Johnson, Walker, it could really get close for Jamal.

Pat Yasinskas (1:16 PM)

I think Jamaal makes roster. But his starting job sure is very much in jeopardy.

Sept. 18 Chat:

CC (Atlanta)

Can we officially classify Gaines Adams a bust? There is no other logical conclusion.

Pat Yasinskas (1:40 PM)

Close, but you've got to give the guy in your backyard (Jamaal Anderson) the title first.

Oct. 2 Chat:

Adam ((Erie,Pa))

Has Jamaal Anderson pretty much sealed his fate with the falcons? Or does he still have a chance?

Pat Yasinskas (2:47 PM)

Looking like the end is pretty near.

Yasinskas does not think Jamaal has any trade value either. I forgot to include the following Q&A from the

Sept. 23 Chat:

matt (jax)

Will the Flacons finally get rid of the bust named Jamaal Anderson? Can he back fill at DT and does he have any trade value?

Pat Yasinskas (1:56 PM)

No trade value there. He'll slide over to DT in some packages. Right now, they're still starting him at end and bringing in Biermann on passing downs. Biermann's not big enough to play the run, so it will probably continue like this for most of the season.
