Falcon's Offense

Watching the film from the last game, it seems Matt's second option is to check down to the running back. Shouldn't Matt be checking down to the next reciever or tightend, and the running back last? On several plays Matt looked quickly down field and then right away threw it to the running back. Our offense should be more than look at the #1 reciever and if he's not open check down to running back. Am I seeing this right? Thoughts?

For one thing, his protection was horrible. That's a huge reason why he was checking down - didn't have time to let routes fully develop. Second, he doesn't have to completely turn his head 90 degrees to the left and right in order to see the routes on those sides of the field. I'm sure he was looking at every option he could before checking it down, but once again the constant pressure from Chicago's D-line probably forced a lost of those check downs, not just good coverage by them.
