GO FALCONS - Beat the Steelers!

Check out this little nugget from ESPN.com (Sunday Countdown):

"The Steelers will have a serious field-position problem if they haven't improved their kickoff coverage from last year. The Falcons had the best net kickoff value in the league, according to FO measures, while the Steelers had the worst net kickoff value of any team in the past 17 years.

Although the Steelers may want to go to a heavier ground game with QB Ben Roethlisberger out, the Falcons had an excellent run defense last season. They finished the year second in our DVOA ratings, and ranked first in run defense from Week 10 onward."

I knew our run defense improved last season in the second half of the year, but we were the #1 run defense from Week 10 onward? Incredible! Just think how good our run defense should be this season with Jerry, Peters, Spoon, and an improved secondary...
