One of the major questions the Atlanta Falcons have to answer once the season begins is how does Giorgio Tavecchio do in replacing Matt Bryant.

Tavecchio, who was 5 of 5 on field goals with a long of 56, and a perfect 8 for 8 on extra points while filling in last year when Bryant was injured speaks about his time sharing the locker room with the Falcons kicking legend. 

"I learned a lot; can't say enough about him and his career,"said Tavecchio. "It's what every kicker dreams about."

Tavecchio also addressed what pressures he feels being the guy to replace Matt Bryant.

"Just going to do my best to make the city proud," said the Atlanta kicker. "There's nothing more I can do. I've given it everything I've got so far and I continue to plan on doing that because this teams deserves it and the city deserves it."
