Falcons 2016 Training Camp – Rough day for the offense 

Day two of training camp started off much better. Quinn was impressed with how his guys started off. Sense of urgency, quickness in and out of the drills. Much Much better from day one of camp. 

First off injury updates. Julio Jones did not full practice. However, he did participate in individual drills – Coaches decision. 

Today’s focus was more about line of scrimmage. Defense played well creating two turnovers. Coach Quinn continues to be impressed with overall speed on defense. 

Quinn plans to use a lot more man to man on defense with linebackers and safeties. As far as the pass rush is concerned, he likes the versatility he now has… Including linebackers. 

Devonta Freeman Tevin Coleman continue to be featured in the passing game. Being split out wide to take advantage of linebackers in man to man opportunities. 


Tomorrow will be first padded practice. Which they will truly see who truly has what it takes.

Individual performance 

Keanu Neal had first interception on a match up with Levine Toilolo. Toilolo bobbled it and Neal snatched it and took it to the house. 

Matt Ryan 50 yard pass to Tevin Coleman in 11 on 11 drills for a touchdown. 

Austin Hooper continues to impress with his pass catching. 

Mo Sanu did not have as good day, dropped a 10 yard post fairly open…. Had three dropped passes on the day. Certainly wasnt the lack of effort… 

C.J.Goodwin (6’4) went one on one with rookie wide out David Glidden (5’7) in drills. Glidden not a good day, dropped two balls on short routes. 

Adrian Clayborn seems like his ready to go. Made a pretty good play on line of scrimmage. 

Devonta Freeman continues to work on pass catching.

Justin Hardy continues to show off his brick catching hands as he snagged a pass with one hand. 

Julio Jones in individual drills just taking it easy 

DeVondre Campbell continues to impress with coverage skills. Played Austin Hooper tight and forced an incompletion. 

Desmond Trufant broke up a pass from Matt Ryan to Aldrick Robinson. Robinson also had a drop. 

Alex Mack taking control over the offense like a center should, next thing you know…. Fumbled snap. 

Mike Person was working with the first team as veteran guard Chris Chester as the backup. 

Robert Alford with leaping interception in passing drills off Matt Ryan. 

Jacob Tamme added to the many drops by Falcons receivers. Not a good day for the offense. 

Team Competition 

Third Down competition – Offense won that handily. 

Moving the ball competition – where you see if you could get two first downs. Pretty much went back and forth. 

Overall….  Falcons defense pretty much dominated day two of camp with turnovers. Offense was not up to par, a lot of drops by receivers and turnovers. 

For fans that have been asking for a defense…. So far So good…. Only day two of training…. Good sign nonetheless.
