...does not a championship defense make?


Their d-line and linebackers are poop, and a major reason why they choked away another playoff game.

But I'm sure they'll sign another top corner this offseason, maybe that'll be finally the missing piece.

As long as we sign another RB this year, I don't care.

They arent top cornerbacks. Theyve missed the most tackles for any cb duo. Dunta can barely cover.

they're a house of cards on that defensive line. abraham is going to be 35 on opening day next year and babineaux is 31. those are the two best players on that DL and the falcons are going to be up poo creek unless they find future replacements immediately or they've got talent stashed on their roster that they're grooming to take over for them (they don't). corey peters and vance walker are pretty good rotational guys but peria jerry is circling the drain toward bust status. keep in mind that jerry is a first rounder who was drafted to anchor that line.

biermann is a lot like greg hardy prior to 2012: fan favorite who's due to have a break out season any old time but has yet to do it. he's in year five so i think it's safe to assume that what we've seen is all he's got. there's really nobody else on the falcons' DL that's all that noteworthy.

There is a reason pass rushers make the big bucks.

Very hard to find good ones.

Which is exactly why I hope we can lock up Hardy to an extension.

they have a specific problem stopping other teams on defense. widening the dialogue out to "well they won a bunch of games and made it to the NFC championship game" isn't a counter argument unless somebody is arguing that they didn't win.
