The Atlanta Falcons Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey went out and made a bunch of roster moves recently. They are moves we wish the Falcons didn’t have to make, but alas, this is the NFL, and injuries happen. The addition of veterans, specifically safety Keith Tandy, defensive end Steven Means, and linebacker Corey Nelson, was both smart and necessary. Let’s break down how we can expect each of these guys to fit in in the immediate future and what we should expect them to contribute going forward. Keith Tandy Tandy has some experience starting but won’t be the coaching staff’s first option as they look to somehow replicate Keanu Neal’s production. He’s a seasoned veteran that has flashed periodically throughout his career. He’s only here as quality, experienced depth Authentic Julio Jones Jersey , and that’s fine by me. Steven Means Means did literally everything he possibly could to secure a roster spot with the Philadelphia Eagles. They wanted to keep him, but NFL rosters are prohibitive, and plenty of hand wringing preceded his release. The Eagles coaches raved about who he is as a player and a person. And when you take into account who he was playing behind in Philadelphia, it makes their ringing endorsement that much better. I’m excited to see what Means can do in Atlanta, and you should be too.Corey Nelson Nelson was a valuable reserve during his time with the Denver Broncos. He couldn’t land a starting gig with the Eagles, but they certainly thought he could. In August they decided to cut their losses. We’d be in trouble if he’s asked to start, but we’d see a healthy dose of Duke Riley and/or Foye Oluokun before that ever came to fruition. Bottom line: he’s quality depth and sometimes that’s all you need to get over the injury hump. Hopefully Deion Jones’ injury isn’t going to sideline him or sideline him for long. Regardless, the Falcons may elect to hold onto Nelson, given his upside and ability to contribute on special teams. Again, these were smart Authentic Deion Jones Jersey , deliberate signings by the front office. I don’t think we’ll see much of Tandy and Nelson, but Means will immediately work his way into the defensive end rotation. Your thoughts on these signings?3 takeaways from Falcons vs Saints The Falcons dropped an important division game to our rival New Orleans Saints in a shoot-out that surprised no one. That said, it’s not often that your QB can put up over 370 yards with 5 TDs and no turnover and still lose the game. It was a frustrating loss that fans will undoubtedly analyze deeply over the next week. Here are the takeaways from the game.The offense and Calvin Ridley are for realA week after putting up 31 points on a good Carolina defensive front, the Falcons put up an impressive 37 points against another good defensive front. People will talk about some of the lost opportunities, but it is hard to argue with 37 points from your offense, including near perfection in the red zone. Any concerns that Calvin Ridley would disappear also were quickly dispensed. He absolutely torched the Saints with 7 receptions for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns. On a day where the opposing team sold out to stop Julio, Ridley showed he can punish them for doing so. It’s an amazing one-two punch that we’ll need to survive the potential demise of a once promising defense.This defense could end up as one of the worst in the leagueI know people don’t like excuses, but the Falcons are decimated on defense. This team is literally down four starters now and we eagerly await the status of Ricardo Allen. If he is out for significant time, every leader on this defense will be sitting on the bench. The Falcons will have lost both starting safeties, our starting middle linebacker and our starting defensive end. That is just too much for any team to overcome and it could result in a defense that is gashed regularly Black Brian Poole Jersey , as they were today. The team won’t face Drew Brees every week, but this could be a painful stretch of football, especially with the hopes and expectations fans came into this season with.It’s not over ... yetIf the Falcons offense can continue to play this way, they will keep this team in a lot of games. If they can survive long enough, they should get back some key guys on defense that could slow down the hemorrhaging. It’s not an ideal scenario, and the margin for error is perilously thin, but the season is far from over.
