Yahoo! Sports NFL columnist, Eric Adelson, joined Jeff Benedict Monday and discussed the Atlanta Falcons being a Super Bowl contender.

"If they stay healthy, they have everything they need," said Adelson. "You just don't see very many weaknesses. My biggest concern for the Falcons is that they could get beat up by their division." 

He touched on why the NFC South is such a tough division to play in, and where he'd rank Matt Ryan among the top quarterbacks in the NFL.

Adelson continued by chatting about the Falcons defense. Can it truly can be a top-5 unit in the league, how Keanu Neal will adjust to the new helmet rule, and how competitive will the NFC South be?

He closed with comments about what type of rebound to expect from the Carolina Panthers, how excited he is about all of the young quarterbacks around the league.
