The Atlanta Falcons dropped to 4-8, and back down to last place in the NFC South, after a 26-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

It has a lot in the media and fans alike scratching our heads and asking, what do we do now? Coaching changes, roster overhauls, the draft, free agency are all things that have been floating around social media following Sunday's loss.

Falcons Radio Network analyst Dave Archer said all of those are offseason questions. He said the only thing this group can do at this point is do their job and play for the guys next to them who also wear the uniform; and he didn't mince words.

"If you can't play for pride--if you can't play because it's your job, putting your signature on your performance--then you need to be the hell off the team. They need to get rid of you. That should be the only motivation you need."

"If you're embarrassed by your performance, and there's some guys who should've been embarrassed by their performance yesterday," Archer continued. "If they're not [embarrassed by their performance], they need to be up out of here too."

The Falcons offense managed to put only nine-points on the board, with a season low 131 yards of total offense. The offensive line allowed quarterback Matt Ryan to be hit seven times, and sacked three.

Defensively, Atlanta gave up 207 yards on the ground to the Baltimore Ravens. They did, however, manage a turnover that lead to a touchdown.

"It's time to find out who's going to put up or walk-out," Archer said when asked about a potentialy players-only meeting to discuss the rest of the season. "I think that's where you're at."
