Surprise Ollison is an inactive, same for Senat. Senat has fallen off a cliff it seems.

I think there's more going on with Senat behind closed doors. He was a healthy scratch a couple times last season. I thought he impressed this preseason. 

Or it could be that since Minny is a outside/stretch zone run team, we're stressing speed on the line this game.

Ollison is not a surprise at all (nor is Hill really).  He did not get any reps with the ones in preseason and there's four guys ahead of him.  Senat is in an odd spot.  He's not been bad but we got a lot of guys who've shown more than he has.  He also offers no ST value.

Weird to see Brown there with Gono already out. Hill AND Ollison a little odd too. No big back for short yardage. They must be impressed at Keith Smith to lead the charge on run plays.

Brown makes sense as they carry 7 OL, so the swing emergency tackle will always be Ty, and the other player better be cross trained to play OG and Center (Wes). I hope they plan to cross train brown as he is infinitely better than Wes. Not sure what is going on with Senat, but he was playing well in Preseason. I'd rather roll with him than Cominsky for this game. Must be some off the field stuff, or his lack of pass rush.

Could use the goal line touches though, as the Vikes play the run very tough. I think hes better than Hill as the short yardage back.

I think Cominsky offers more ST value. He moves very well for a guy his size.

It's actually a good thing to have good players inactive 1st game of the season. That means the Falcons have good depth.

All the talk of “we need a big back” from TD and Quinn just for them both to be inactive? 

Probably because they don’t think it’s going to be s blowout game where they have to protect a lead. Thinking it’s gonna be a close game. In that case Freeman will carry the load along with Ito.

No idea and honestly our run game will go as our OL goes.  None of our backs are going to run through walls and Free and Ito are the best equipped to find daylight and improvise.
