Over the last week, a few Atlanta Falcons defenders have had their say about the team's defense and it started with De'Vondre Campbell's tweet.

After that social media post, Falcons safety Keanu Neal, who is a key piece the team will get back after missing most of the season last year with injury, doubled down on the top-10 mindset. 

“When a lot of guys are hurt, people forget the defense that we have. We have a great defense, and we’re going to be ready to go once the season hits."

Ricardo Allen shared a very similar and more direct opinion: "When we are all out there, we are top 10 defense easily. We’ve showed it. We put it out there. We have to keep ourselves healthy.”

John Fricke and Hugh Douglas discuss the Falcons defense, if they can be a top-10 unit, and what has to go right for them this season for that to happen.
