Is Stone At G Because He Is The Only/best Option There?

In my opinion he is our best C, but I wonder if the coaches think he is so much better than our next options at G that it trumps the upgrades he brings over Hawley. Even so I think we lose the stabilizing input he brings to the line at C by holding the line(pun intended). Just have to have faith in the coaches I guess.

It appears he's #1 for the LG spot. Asamoah has been beat out by Chester for the RG spot, but I don't recall Asamoah getting any chances at LG this training camp. Weird the coaches haven't tried him out there. But Stone has looked solid thus far, quite pleased with his transition to the ZBS. I expected him to be the one lineman to struggle transitioning but if anything it may have accentuated his strengths. The big man can move

I interpret unexpected players working their way into the starting lineup as a positive thing. And I thought the protection in the first quarter or so was actually really strong. I'm rewatching tonight so that may change but I thought our OL looked decent...especially given the running back depth chart.

Stone is there because the coaching staff likes what he's doing. Good for him. Maybe he earned it.

The Oline is at the stage they need to be for the 1st preseason game imo. It's gonna click here, they just need to stay healthy now. Pass protection was good and I liked what I saw from the run blocking. Talking solely OLine here. Tamme was beat bad twice iirc, on another Antone had a nice hole but couldn't get past the corner/safety blitzing off the left of the line. Hank missed his block once or twice. Got a lot to clean up but I like what I saw from the Oline

Give it a couple of weeks and Freeman/Coleman back and we're gonna have a nice offense

I love how people are still crying for Asamoah to start. It's like a conspiracy to the fans that Asamoah isn't the best fit for the ZBS Shanahan scheme. Yes Asamoah was a decent at best guard for KOETTER and the Falcons LAST YEAR, but since the Falcons made a change, he is not best for the team anymore. Asamoah can't move. He can block one on one fine but when it comes to him having the quickness and stamina to run this offense, he can't do it.

I heard the great Scott Carasik say that this was just a motivation light up your butt move from the coaching staff to Asamoah so he can step his game up....... HA Yeah OK.... Keep believing that you mark.

Quinn also says competition still going at center. Stone will work at guard and center. Will continue to try different combos.



Nothing to see here folks. PLEASE NOTHING TO SEE HERE. Hawley won the starting Center Spot because he is Joe Hawley. Hawley does NOT have to compete for anything, I repeat, Hawley does NOT have to compete for anything in the NFL.

I'd wager R_the_Great will be all over this thread spewing nonsense.

Oh, look! I was right.

He's never gotten over the anger of finding out the joke was on him when his mom named his dog Stay.........

"come stay, come stay, come stay............Mom, the dog won't come to me!!!!!"

You mad because Joe Hawley hasn't been gift wrapped his starting spot yet? I know everyone loves his beard and look, but can we actually judge the man on his performance?

More fake, made up nonsense. Still insulting our intelligence I see. Now your shctick is old and stale. Boring really.

100% troll bait. Nothing more, nothing less. Roid rage maybe, who knows. You might consider moving to motherland Russia to be with your arm wrestler buddy. You know, be a groupie and travel abroad to all the arm pulling contests.

It makes a better life than being a lying troll imo...

I wouldn't be surprised if Stone takes Center and Aso takes the spot at guard. I'm good with Stone at either, because obviously they want him in the starting lineup. My prediction is

LT-Matthews

LG-Asamoah/Stone

C- Stone/Hawley

RG-Chester

RT-Schraeder

here is where I am too. I think Hawley is the better center but he was still a little stiff with the twos Friday. I'd rather see Stone @ center for now

Lying Troll? That's a new one. I actually was honest when a Falcons beat writer thought Mike Person was with the first string unit for the first touchdown drive vs the Titans. I am speaking the truth and it hurts everyone because they are desperately wanting their favorite hero Joe Hawley just get handed the center spot.

I agree, Hawley himself said he wasn't 100% and probably wouldn't be for the rest of the season so I'd rather see Stone at center. I think they play Stone at guard because if Hawley can play, he thrives at center and it's really the only position he looks good at to me. Edited by PHALCONABERNATHY
