Falcons are 2-0 going into Thursday nights preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. There are players still battling for starting positions and here what you need to keep an eye on.
1. Wes Schweitzer battling for Chris Chester’s right guard spot.
According to Dan Quinn Wes Schweitzer has a pretty good chance of winning the starting right guard position from Chris Chester. So Monday night is huge for both guys.
Who do I expect to be starting right guard ?
Despite the constant chatter around Wes Schweitzer. I have to go with veteran Chris Chester. Falcons want to win now and Chester’s experience gives them the best opportunity.
2. Vic Beasley back from shoulder soreness.
Like most I was disappointed I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing both Vic Beasley and Dwight Freeney on the field last week. So my main focus will be on pass rush.
Can Falcons create pressure without blitzing? We will see.
3. Quinn wants turnovers NOW!!
Despite their 2-0 record Head coach Dan Quinn and defensive coordinator Richard Smith are not happy with the lack of turnovers.
Here’s what Richard Smith had to say about creating turnovers.
“To do that, you have to hunt like a dog to get them,” Smith said in an interview with AJC. “You have to be conscious of it. We haven’t been able to get that done.”
I know it’s only preseason but I’ll watching to see linebackers trying to cause fumbles and the secondary to making plays on the ball.
Turnovers! Turnovers! Turnovers! Turnovers are a must. Watch out Falcons Fam
