Will the Falcons be a contender in 2019?


Recommended Posts

What are the chances the Atlanta Falcons will be a major contender in 2019? We should be getting Debo, Neal and Ricardo back. I know our O line is a big problem. And our defense is being exposed. Our running back situation has some concerns. Can our problems be fixed in the draft? And Free Agency? Or is this more a 2-3 year fix?

Nope. Way too many needs to fill. Not to say we wont win some games based on our talent at the skill positions, but the physical teams will still push us around.

That reality pi$$es me off so much. This front office has no excuse when it comes to the way they drafted this year. They made the conscious decision to go WR and CB instead of replacing our losses in the trenches. Terribly short-sighted on their part.

If you could clone Kyle Shanahan and make him our OC, then we have a chance to contend.  If Sark is here 2019, it will be a lost year again.  This team has no heart or discipline right now.  Matt Ryan is confused, and the offense is back to not clicking.  I watched some 2016 tape, its almost like every play was going to work.  Watch  the tape this year, and you will be surprised if a play works.  How could Kyle make a guy like Joshua Perkins and DJ Tialevia into tight ends that can produce?  Bad Hire but mistakes are made.

Difficult to be a contender with the last ranked D in the NFC.  AB says we have a good "reason" because of all the injuries. I think AB is in denial, we should have position depth- isn't that why we have TD any why we lost all 4 preseason games?  The Falcons have a good sibling support system but poor coaching.  Hope they can figure this out and everyone keeps their job.

Hopefully next season doesn't start out with devastating injuries like this one did.

And it's not like this team is in complete shambles. 

They've lost four games...FOUR...on the last play of the game. 

Flip that and they're 8-3 right now. 

Getting the three (best) defensive players back should make a world of improvement. 

But really, it's the NFL, and there are only a couple teams that are contending every single year...so who knows about ours? 

I'm more worried about coaching than anything else.  Now that's troubling.

We need starting caliber players at RT, RG, LG, DT, Edge, RB, OLB and most-likely CB. We also need new positional coaches for the OL, DL, ST's and WR's.

 

 I think it'll take us a couple off-season to get there. We can speed up the process by getting rid of some high dollar wastes and becoming more active in FA.

Its amazing how good we were after the Redskins game. Now we have so many holes.

Our DBs are suspect. Every time a QB drop back to pass, I know they're going to complete the pass or there's a flag coming. We cant get off the field whatsoever on 3rd downs. I know OL/DL is a priority, but we have to upgrade our secondary. This is definitely a 2 year fix unless we strike gold in the draft and make some difficult choices with trades and resigning our own.
