Offseason Analysis: Atlanta Falcons

Feb 9, 2009

The biggest question I have for the Falcons is “can they do it again?”.  They have the pieces in place so I don’t see why not.  If Matt Ryan can avoid the Sophomore slump they’ll  be in good shape.  Ryan has plenty of weapons to work with, starting with Michael Turner and Roddy White.  Michael Jenkins made great strides this season and signed a four-year extension in November.  Having their QB, RB, and WRs intact makes the Falcons an attractive team for fantasy owners.  A lot has changed in a year.  Look for Roddy White to get paid this offseason.

Defensively their key free agents are Lawyer Milloy, Jonathan Babineaux, and Brent Grimes.

    If the secondary can make the same strides the offense did….then look out for us!
