The Atlanta Falcons bye week is over, and so far we’ve seen the good and the bad. We’ve seen the emergence of Devonta Freeman, a steady-improving defense and the creativity of Kyle Shanahan’s offense.
Though Dan Quinn has made major improvements to the team, there’s still a lot the team must do to get better. One is the challenge of generating a better pass rush; the Falcons have just 10 sacks on the season. Another is solving the issues at center.
