Three things the Atlanta Falcons must do during the second half
Don’t let the 1-7 start fool you. This roster is full of talent and their might be more hidden gems if the coaching staff lets them play.
Last year was a coming-out party for safety Damontae Kazee. In 2017, he only played in half of the games but in 2018, he exploded on the scene.
He ended with seven interceptions that were tied for first in the NFL. He probably would have never seen the field as much as he did if it weren’t for injuries to the secondary. The Falcons shouldn’t have to wait for injuries to happen to find out who can play ball on this team.
Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield are both playing right now and both have done some good and bad things which are to be expected from young players. Deadrin Sanat has been a scratch all season and should get some playing time especially since he was the Falcons 3rd round pick in 2018.
Linebacker Foyesade Oluokun was the Falcons 6th round pick in 2018 and in his rookie season all he did was end up and one of the Falcons leading tacklers.
No one is saying the Falcons should bench all of their vets to play the younger players, but they should give these guys a chance to see what they can offer this team from this point forward.
