Atlanta Falcons Center Alex Mack joined Rick and John live from Flowery Branch. Alex talked about what it will mean for the O-Line to lose Levitre but Schweitzer took a lot of the reps and they expect him to come in and get the job done. Alex doesn't see this putting anymore pressure on his plate and credited Wes for being really smart and they communicate between themselves to make sure they are all on the same page.

They talk about the run game and Alex talked about how the offense runs the best when he defense has no idea what your running and thats why they banged the drum hard to run the ball well and get great blocks. Alex said its their own blocks that get them pumped up. Alex talked about the TD by Matt Ryan and how he thought he was going to throw the ball away but instead he ran down the field so he had to run down the field and had a good view from behind. Alex told us the Saints have a lot of talent upfront and press the pocket which means he will spend a lot of time in the film room to study their tendencies.​
