Robert Alford can’t run at all. Will be interesting to see how long he’s out. Falcons confident in rookie Isaiah Oliver

Good thing we play the receiving core of the Redskins, the Browns and Cowboys the next few weeks.

Give Alford time to heal if needed.

I pray to God I don't see Oliver on Richardson. He'll get destroyed.

Dude Richardson isn't all that, and him and Smith aren't in synch at all.

If Alford is going to miss a few games, this is the best possible stretch imagineable to miss.

Not that he was locking down any of the guys he was playing lol.

I wouldn't sleep on the Cowboys receivers. They haven't been in sync this season but they've shown some hot flashes. Now with that said, IMPO, their receivers aren't the issue, it's Dak. But that's just me.

I know Richardson isn't all that but that doesn't go to say he's not capable of having a big game. When it comes down to opponents against the Falcons you can't just look at their stats and make any significant judgement about said player. You have to actually look at the player without any statistical biases.

Even though we destroyed the Seahawks in the playoffs Richardson could not be covered by anyone. He has a tendency to make spectacular catches and I don't think the Oliver is ready for him tbh.

Olivers change of direction is poor for a CB and Richardson is a bad matchup for his type. He's really only good for 9 routes as far as I can see so far.

All true. Not a single soul can say you're wrong even if they tried
