The Falcons are hoping to make more plays on the ball in 2019

The Falcons are hoping to make more plays on the ball in 2019

Atlanta’s been slowly building a better defense, but critically, also a more opportunistic one. Here’s an interesting stat that you may not have been aware of: Since 2010, only three Falcons have managed to finish their careers in Atlanta with double digit career interceptions. Those four players are William Moore (16, 11th on the all-time list), Thomas DeCoud (14), Brent Grimes (13), and Robert Alford (10). The only other players knocking at the door at the moment are Desmond Trufant (9 since 2013), Deion Jones (8 since 2016), and Damontae Kazee (7 since 2017, all of them last year)....

Falcoholic mailbag roundtable series: Will the Falcons run any 3 safety sets?

Let’s dig into the defensive backfield today. The Falcons should get Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen back this season after losing them for most of the 2018 season. But Damontae Kazee made his mark as a fill-in free safety last year, adjusting well and finishing the season tied at the top of the league for interceptions. Balancing Allen and Neal’s returns with a need to keep Kazee on the field isn’t the simplest thing. One way the Falcons could make it work is to employ more three-safety sets. That’s exactly what Falcoholic reader Xception wants to know, and our staff weighs in...
