2) Entire offensive line

The offensive line appeared to be under control in the Falcons’ first two preseason games, but fell apart at the seams in game three. The unit as a whole aloud six sacks, three of which were blocking for Matt Ryan. That cannot happen in 2015 if the Falcons want to make a push for the postseason.
As far as the run blocking goes, it is non-existent. No running back has had any running lanes to work with and has made the backs look a lot worse than they really are. Tevin Coleman’s numbers were terrible, but it wasn’t his fault. He was hit before he could even get back to the line of scrimmage.
The offensive line has got to improve and needs to have a good showing in game four in order to give the fan base something to look forward too.
