Atlanta Falcons: How can they become more successful?
4) Spread the ball around more
over the course of the past few years the Atlanta Falcons were known as a team who could throw the ball around on offense pretty much better than anyone else. However, things took a turn for the worst in 2015.
Julio Jones stole the show on the Falcons’ offense and broke all sorts of records, but in the end, he took targets away from other players which didn’t put the team in the best of positions for most of the year.
Outside of Jones, Roddy White was not second in receiving. He was fourth on the team behind Devonta Freeman and Jacob Tamme. The Falcons have got to do a better job of sharing the ball amongst their wide receivers moving forward.
Whether this means throwing the ball to White more if they keep him or signing or drafting a new wide receiver, something’s got to change.
