Hey everyone,

If you missed my post last week, my name is Andrew Hirsh, and I'm the new reporter at AtlantaFalcons.com. I'm going to stop by here when I can and chat with you all.

Feel free to use this thread to ask questions, give feedback, share ideas, etc.

What are the odds clayborn starts over Jackson come week one

Don't want to put any percentages on it because Clayborn is being used on the inside and outside. Jackson will get his chances, though.

I really think Clayborn is a breakout candidate this year. Quinn really pushed for him during FA, and there's a reason he got drafted 11th overall back in 2011. His explosiveness is really impressive, and in the right defense, he could become a very, very productive player. I really like when he's inside next to Beasley during passing situations. Those two can do a lot of damage together.

What are the odds on Adam "Double Agent" Replogle? Will he make the practice squad? Is our Backup Guard pool deep?

He's an interesting prospect. I wouldn't be surprised if the team wants to groom him on the practice squad.

Fullback: Guaranteed to only keep one or might they keep both?

My guess is they keep one. The battle has been incredibly close, although Quinn did single out Mooney yesterday as someone who's impressed.

Hey Andrew,

Jon Asamoah seems to not be a good fit for the ZBS at this point. Any thoughts on him going forward, trade or cut next year ect....

Also any news with JJs new deal?....

Thanks....

Not really sure what to make of the Asamoah situation. At least not yet. True, he's not an *ideal* fit for the outside zone blocking scheme, but he's still an immensely talented lineman. He can still earn a starting job by finishing the preseason with a few good performances.

No update on Julio's contract.

Andrew,

Props on coming to this forum and being so interactive. How does Jake Matthews look to you? Obviously his injury last season was pretty serious and all reports are that he's pretty much 100% now, but do you see any lingering effects or not?

Jake has looked very solid to me, and I've yet to see any lingering effects. The one part of Matthews' game that stands out is his technique. It's about as good as one could hope, honestly.

As long as he stays healthy, he's going to be just fine.

Freeman and Coleman are both recovering from hamstrings strains. Antonie Smith now has the same injury. What do you think the reasoning is behind all of them receiving the same injury so close to one another and how does this affect our run game going into tomorrow's game.

Jackson and White also had hamstring injuries recently. I agree, something isn't right.
