Falcons Corners

03

by Dewey

Triangle? Square? Pentagon? Octagon? How many corners will the Falcons defense have? (Wait for laughter to die down and….), but seriously, the Falcons find themselves with an embarrassment of riches at the all important cornerback position heading into the 2017 summer workouts. With the NFL becoming more and more a passing league, and teams becoming more and more reliant on sub-packages, I guess you can never have too many cover men. But how many will the Falcons keep on the final 53 and how many will be among the 46 dressed on Sundays? We currently have a first rounder, 2 second rounders, 1 undrafted rookie and 3 castoffs, all of whom have seen significant playing time, and all who have played pretty well under some pressure filled situations. Now we add to the mix a 5th round rookie who by all rights should battle for significant playing time. Who will be the last few standing come September?

DESMOND TRUFANTxxxxxI had been pretty vocal on my displeasure with the Falcons rolling over and presenting Desmond with a big check without even testing the waters to see what type of deals might be available. Desmond is a good corner, but the defense actually played better (or 02put up better numbers at least) after Desmond was lost with an injury mid-2016. But with a new monster contract, Desmond will be a Falcon for quite some time. So let’s pencil him in at our #1 CB and hope he produces what his contract implies.

ROBERT ALFORDxxxxxThe player every Falcon fan loves to hate. Personally, I’ve always liked Alford. I could do with a few less penalties, which he did, in fact, clean-up in the back half of 2016. Alford has been our #2 CB since arriving via the 2013 draft with Desmond, and like Desmond, has a shiny new contract that will make him a Falcon for the foreseeable future. I like the way he takes chances for turnovers, something his06 counterpart doesn’t seem to do as often. I’ve seen where folks would like to see him tried out at FS, but since there have been no rumblings from the branch about this, we’ll go ahead and slide Alford into CB #2 spot.

JALEN COLLINSxxxxxBoy, I really didn’t like this pick in the 2nd round of 2015. Troubled past, not a lot of starting time at LSU, and didn’t put up impressive numbers when he did play. Really slow to pick up even the fundamentals when he got to “big boy school”, it looked as if this was a dud pick. 2016 didn’t start off any better for Jalen, as he was suspended the 1st four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Then coming off suspension, he was inactive for a few games and it looked like we might have to admit our folly in drafting Jalen. Then came the Trufant injury and Collins was forced to play. To everyone’s surprise, amazement and awe, Jalen actually played steady 04(further fueling my desire to at least shop Desmond). Jalen can be a solid #3 CB, but not a nickel. Ultimately, when we go to 3 corners, Jalen plays the outside and Alford would assume slot duties. One has to wonder though, has the Falcons FO had its collective fill of Jalen? Only 1 slip-up with the league so far, but is that, coupled with his past, and the fact that he was so slow to grasp the process, enough to make the Falcons look in another direction? More on that later.

BRIAN POOLExxxxxPoole burst onto the Atlanta scene as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016. He impressed enough that he was the 3rd CB in the first 4 games while Jalen was serving his suspension, then continued in that role after Jalen returned and subsequently after Trufant was injured. Coach Dan Quinn intimated this past off season that Poole would get some work at safety. Obviously, some people ran with that and said Poole was being moved to safety. I don’t believe that to be the case. I believe Poole will get some work07 there to be familiar with the position in case of injury and to have more roster flexibility with the final 53 and the dressed 46. Right now, I believe Poole has the inside track on the 4th CB slot in dime situations.

DEJI OLATOYExxxxxAs 2016 wore on, the Falcons made a couple of minor roster moves to their practice squad with a couple of free agent CB’s. One, that we will get to in a moment, was more the “headliner” of the signings. The other, Olatoye, was barely even noticed. But down the stretch run to the playoffs and on into the playoffs and Super Bowl, it was Olatoye that proved to be the better signing, as he played steady, within himself, when called upon.

BLIDI WREH-WILSONxxxxxBlidi is the aforementioned “headliner” signing the Falcons made when filling out their practice squad. More heralded than Olatoye, Wilson did an admirable job when called 08upon, but it was clear that he was behind Olatoye in the pecking order. Good size and speed that Quinn likes, Wreh-Wilson may be fighting an uphill battle to earn a roster spot.

C.J.GOODWINxxxxxTalk about size, speed and athleticism! C.J. has it all except experience. A college WR along with playing WR his first couple of years in the league, C.J. made the switch to the defensive side of the ball in 2016 and showed some really good ability. Mostly a special teamer in 2016, CJ did find his way on defense a few times and was relied on even more during the post-season. There were also rumors of C.J. getting some looks at safety.

DAMONTAE KAZEExxxxxOne of our 2017 5th round draft picks, Kazee is going to be the wild card on how the CB10 situation plays out this fall. Smallish and more quick than fast, Damontae has a penchant for turnovers, something this defense could use more of (2 ways to stifle the opposing offense, stop ‘em or just take the damn ball from them). If, if, if, if, if Kazee can come into camp and win the 3rd/4th CB spot, things could get a whole lot more interesting in our defensive backfield, personnel wise.

Trufant and Alford are the starters, period. At the end of last season, Jalen had proved himself capable of being the #3 CB, playing the outside in nickel and dime situations. But if Poole improves and provides solid depth at the safety position AND Kazee comes in and performs like everyone hopes, Jalen could find himself on the outside looking in come 2018 (where he 11could be traded/released to provide some much needed cap space).

MY PREDICTION:

The Falcons will break camp with 7 CB’s on the roster. My feeling is Trufant, Alford, Collins, Poole, Kazee, Olatoye and Goodwin all make the club. Poole and Goodwin will also be used for depth at the FS position. I believe we could see a defensive alignment were all 7 are on the field at once (I call this the Knee-Jerk-Reaction-to-Blowing-a-Huge-Lead-to-the-Patriots-in-the-Super Bowl defense). Or maybe we’ll just call it the “Heptagon Defense”.

(And Yes, I’m aware that a heptagon actually means 7 angles, but that also means there are 7 vertices, or “corners” to the layman….I went to elementary school too ya know.)

    Prediction: Pressley (RB) is cut monday morning – if not sooner. Perfect pass from Torgeson fumble fingered and knocked up in the air by Pressley = interception. It’s not just that play…. Pressley has been awful on special teams and blocking is terrible.

        During the part that mattered, I don’t think so. It’s a tryout and a practice, in my opinion. Plus, the scrubs have never has a chance to plan or really practice together. There are probably some good scrubs for DQ to improve, but they’re thrown to the lions in these games. I’m not disappointed. I saw what I wanted to see, plus some.

    Seems like a lot of us are disappointed in the two 2nd half let downs so far but I’m seeing seeing as much hope as ever. DQ is doing exactly what he should be doing as far as giving every single player on the team an opportunity to play in a game. He’s said all along that it doesn’t show what you have in practice until he sees you play in an actual game. That’s being thorough. I’m getting my optimism from watching the very first possessions in each game whereas we were obviously the dominate team in each game. It didn’t take long to prove that and he took the key players out as he should have to avoid possible injuries. We scored twice on the Steelers before they even got a fist down on two tries. That’s dominating. I see no reason why we will not continue the pattern. When the season starts we will not be taking everyone out and the domination will continue.

    Not that anyone asked, and not that there’s anything in it for me but over the past two football seasons I have been purchasing the NFL Package offered by Direct TV. The cost was way overboard but, living out of market, this was the best way to watch my birds in the best quality possible. This has now changed! I paid $100 to get NFL Game Pass on NFL.com. Just Wow! The quality is amazing and the game selection is unmatched. Watching the condensed games is perfect for scouting upcoming opponents. They even have a way to search for plays but I haven’t gotten into that yet. I swear, this is not an ad. Well worth the money for those not swimming in bucks. I can imagine it would be great for FFL enthusiasts as well.

    * Right on target – OL depth is a concern… but with Austin Pasztor (OT) signed the OT depth could be OK. As for C/G depth, whoever doesn’t start at ROG will be the first man up there…. or will Pasztor also be the 1st backup at OG?

    * By the way has anyone here reported that Forrest Lamp (OG), 2nd Rd – Chargers, tore his ACL back on August 2nd? He was under consideration for the Falcons’ 1st Rd pick. I feel bad for the young man.

        Realty is that if a guy’s going to miss 10 games then a replacement must be found. If he’s not available to play he’s hurting the team. Question: Is the replacement already on the roster or will a trade be made?

        Flo, Welcome to our SarahB league! Make sure to run a few mock drafts. You will be in the 10th or 12th draft slot and it’s a serpentine draft so if your picking at 1.12, then you’ll be picking next at 2.01. Right now we have 10 confirmed, have not heard from Snacktastic or WR.

    I heard a comment from Coy Wire on Sunday about the large number of League roster cuts coming soon, all on the same day.

    Coy mentioned that many of those 1200 or so released players will be solid, cap-casualty veterans. He emphasized that the Falcons are now without a doubt a top destination for players, mostly because of our playoff chances but also because of Quinn’s persona. Those gushing quotes from all the Falcons players (especially the new free agents) about their head coach resonate throughout the league.

    So basically, Quinn should get his pick of the 1200 “litter”. After watching some of our UDFA O-Tackles play human turnstiles on Sunday, I can see Quinn shopping for a couple of OTs, although more than a few other snake-bitten teams will be hunting the top Tackles (with more cap money). Still, there should be a few good men available near the top of that O-Tackle heap.

    There could also be a few veteran RBs who should come on the cheap if they can hop onto a playoff-hungry freight train like us.

      Adding to that scenario is another new aspect of our roster development. The fact is that our cut players at select positions, WR in particular, will be starters on more talent-strapped teams. This means that our tough-decision cuts need to be handled a little differently than in the past. In the case this year at WR we have a strong and competitive group coming along and a very limited number of spots available. Having watched Reggie Davis(WR & DGD) with intense interest this preseason, I can assure the FO that he will not clear waivers to make our practice squad. He is already starter material for some bottom-dwellers. We are no longer in a position to risk players like Reggie Davis to the waiver wire- He would be snapped up in a heartbeat and start against us the next week. He should be the replacement for Aldrick Robinson…sure hands, long speed and dependable. He should get a long look against ‘Zona on Saturday while Hall and Dable get less. Either Hall or Dable would clear waivers and be practice squad material. I also put Brian Hill in that category for practice squad. The entire reason for the squad is to develop players, and all three mentioned could use more time and practice. DO NOT risk a talent like Reggie! Please! I’m begging…this is me begging…please.

        icndark – Reggie Davis (WR). There is no bigger Dawg fan than me. What DQ has to figure out is which Reggie Davis is going to show up in the regular season. There was never a question about his blazing speed. At UGA he had a tendency to drop easy catches in key situations PLUS he was no standout returning kicks as he fumbled and misjudged a few of them and had few returns of merit. Having an inexperienced freshman QB did not help him any. You are right though – he won’t clear wavers.

        Aldrick Robinson isn’t going anywhere. He will be the kick returner and he’s good at it – has returned kicks for TD’s in the NFL.

        What makes sense is that they keep both Robinson & Davis.
        Final WR Roster: (stats/info spottrac.com)
        #1) Julio Jones (age 28)
        #2) Mohamed Sanu (age 28)

        #4) Justin Hardy (age 25)

        * good idea of where Reggie Davis is – on the bubble
        Obviously if Davis keeps making plays the next two games he will be difficult to cut. DQ says Davis is learning new skills (special teams) and also said he missed a key block in the run game. It would be ideal to start out with him on the practice squad to get coached up on these “new skills” but he won’t clear wavers.

        Another thing to consider: Gabe & Roberts are only signed for 2017 I believe?

      JWW – Excellent point. I liked it better when there were cut down “tiers”. For example: the first cut ws to maybe 75 players from 90. Not as many guys to look at all at once and usually the first cuts were lesser talented players or cap casualties. Now DQ & Co. will have to evaluate & react quickly with hundreds of players on the market. A pickup at CB is expected – since Collins will miss 10 minimum games. Of course, OL depth could use some help.

    The only area I expect to see a cut/pickup are on the OL, and possibly at CB if they don’t think Goodwin is experienced enough to hold the #4 spot. If Sweitzer gets wins the job, I expect Garland to get cut and bring in someone with experience at Center to back up middle, I don’t see us going into the season with Edison Cornelius as backup center.

      JB – the results were sent from the lab to the Dr. monday but I still haven’t heard the results yet. Should know by friday. I already know the machine helped me because I felt the best I had felt in a long time after being on it for just one night. Had more stamina and energy. So I know I flunked the test and will be getting a machine – especially since they know I have insurance!

      My wife told me for years I had a problem… stopped breathing in my sleep and would wake up abruptly. She said I did that all night long. My wife has been using the machine for a couple of months and swears by it…. saying she feels much better. Her oxygen level is back in the normal range now.

      I suggest your wife get a home study first… which is what I did. Lasts overnight and then results are sent in for computer analysis. If that says she has a problem then a lab “sleep study” is next. The lab study is necessary to know what oxygen setting is needed to set the cpap machine on. If she has medicare or other insurancethe study it is probably covered.

      When I get the results will let you know.

      Now back to the Falcons!

        I’ve had symptoms of sleep apnea for years, off and on. Never had any tests, and I figured my heart condition had something to do with difficulty breathing, particularly while asleep. Because I have high triglycerides (inherited), I’ve taken fibrates in some form. A few months ago, I delayed refilling my prescription for a couple of weeks. Breathing problems quickly disappeared. Could be coincidence, but I found that some people are allergic to fibrates.

    Take on Upcoming PS Game #3… 1) Except sp. teams returners (any of them -Williams, Davis, or Roberts- are an upgrade over Weems), long snapper, holder, Bryant & Bosher, DQ knows it’s soon to be closing time to find true starters to upgrade the entire rest of sp. teams. This, so far, is an obvious weakness that best have Armstrong’s full attention for correction now that this serious problem has been exposed by 2 live-time game performances. At this point, may be best to focus on starters than backups with this unit. (Could come back to haunt if not seriously tweaked.)
    2) Still mystified by what plus/advantage DQ believes keeping Collins on his team exists other than a walking example and daily reminder of how to “job” his teammates and, so far, get away with it. The title of “pariah” fits him perfectly. Forget about last year’s suspension and emergency play. After watching his play this year, it’s obvious to me he’s simply not a good fit and couldn’t cover grandma (10-game susp. notwithstanding). He’s earned the Eugene Robinson Losers Participation Award, imo. Those who continue to think he’s tradable are welcome to bounce that fantasy off their wishful imagination every day, but I doubt the other 31 GMs have doubled-down on swallowing idiot pills to acquire his “disservices”…even in their worst emergency situation as they can watch film, too. Come on, DQ. Just waive this loser’s behind, clear the air, focus on a positive year ahead w/o players who repeatedly “test” positive. Other, more dedicated and talented players need the reps!
    3) If we can just escape any serious injuries. Playing starters well into the 3rd qtr. is real Blackjack – a true p.s. game 3 NFL tradition.

      Falcons defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel took time in the middle of practice to run sprints alongside CB Jalen Collins during field goal drills. Manuel continues to give individual attention to Collins, who was suspended the first 10 games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

        Arno, that definitely is something to make one wonder. Maybe Manuel has a son who’s a loser addict? Maybe he was trotting along with Collins saying “We’re going to have to cut your sorry butt?” Or even “Hey, I need some more of those pills!”? I agree 100% with Grits. Screw the team once, shame on the team. Screw the team “twice”, shame on you!

          Speaking of screwing up.. Shouldn’t it be screw the team once, shame on you, screw the team twice, shame on the team?

        Arno – Strange indeed. Guess the decision’s been comfortable with DQ to keep the seeping boil – at any cost or message to the team. (Wonder what Lombardi or Parcells would’ve done in his case?)

        JB – Agree, as it appears right now, Roberts is the front-runner and a genuine threat. No question a needed upgrade.

    DQ announces that Devonta Freeman (RB) will be out the remainder of preseason…. no surprise there (ajc.com)

    Schweitzer (OG) will start vs Cards but DQ says not to read anything into it as the competition continues. (ajc.com)
