gritzblitz Posted August 17, 2010 Share Posted August 17, 2010 Brian Baldinger had a nice article for the NFL Channel on Biermann noting he was similar to several successful pass rushers in the league now (Jared Allen etc) in the fact they were late round picks with a constant motor and they had to work their way up. I disagree with him when he said Biermann did not make an impact as a rookie...I thought he did...he also thought he was drafted in the 6th Rd.Later in the full article he was praising the O-Line calling it the strength of the team and that Dahl was one of the best OG in the league...he started losing me then....link:http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/08/16/expect-a-big-season-out-of-high-motor-biermann/Expect a big season out of high-motor BiermannPosted: August 16th, 2010 | Brian Baldinger | Tags: Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, Michael Turner, Jamaal Charles, Brian Baldinger, John Abraham, Harvey Dahl, Charlie Weis, Dexter McCluster, Kroy BiermannOne player I couldn’t ignore while calling the Falcons/Chiefs preseason game on television last week was Kroy Biermann.If you look at some of the great pass rushers in the NFL right now — Jared Allen, Trent Cole and Elvis Dumervil — all of them entered the league as late-round draft pick, either in the fourth or fifth round. None of them set the league on fire at first, either.But all of those players have some traits in common — the motor they have for the game, and a fire that fuels their play. Those things are always there. These guys aren’t one-dimensional players, as they understand that by stopping the run, they gain a luxury to rush the passer.I believe that Biermann can be one of those players.He made the Falcons roster as a sixth-round pick, but didn’t have much of an impact when he got on the field. Last season, he was used as a situational pass rusher and had some impact with 5.0 sacks. This season, I think he can make a big impact. I’m expecting double-digits in sacks.Biermann made his presence felt early against the Chiefs by beating the right tackle to force a fumble by Matt Cassell. The Falcons desperately need someone opposite John Abraham, and I see Biermann as that guy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
