Around the 404 with Falcons Radio analyst Dave Archer. Dave mentioned that it has finally hit him that he is ready for football after being out at Falcons practice and talking to Coach Quinn, Matt Ryan and being around the team. Dave told Rick and John that hype around Eric Saubert looks legit based on what he has shown in training camp and how he has been developing a repore with the two guys who will be throwing him the ball this season. Arch mentioned speaking to Matt Ryan and how he told him they are working on scoring more TD’s in the red zone and feature more guys to spread the ball around. We heard from Julio Jones telling reporters he doesn’t want Matt Ryan to force the issue in the red zone because they have other options. Dave responded to Julio Jones comments saying you need to see more explosiveness Julio but shouldn’t force the ball in the red zone. Dave agreed with Rick that Devontae can only help his team when he is on the field. However, Arch did suggest that Freeman kearn to choose his battles when going headfirst. ​
