Name a player on the Falcons roster that you think will play a lot better under this new coaching staff?

Hurst for sure.  I think he gets better with more touches, more regular part of the play.  Both catching and blocking.  Even if we pick up another TE Hurst still wins the lottery under Smith.  My dumb opinion.  


Oh, and I think both Matt Ryan and JJ get ancillary benefit from the above comment.  Because Hurst in the game with a more active hands role means defenses can't afford to double JJ, stats increase as a passive result.  We know Ryan can find JJ and we know JJ can catch the ball but when he's not doubled so often he'll spring to life.  Again, my opinion.  I don't think the new coaches or scheme really change anything about Ryan or Jones or Rid for that matter, just a short ground game + short pass game with TE makes the air option more successful by virtue of coverage sacrifices.
