The Falcons lost another preseason game last night as the Jets came to town and left with a victory.

More concerning that the loss was how often Matt Ryan found himself with a defender in his face, but not everybody is ready to panic just yet.

Former Atlanta Falcons QB D.J. Shockley discussed how often Matt Ryan was touched last night and why it's something the line can build on.

"Gregg Williams threw everything at the Offensive Line last night. You don't really prepare for a preseason game," says Shockley. "Listening in on some of the talks, basically the biggest thing is they weren't communicating. A lot of stuff was in their face and they hadn't seen it yet. Even thought it looked bad and you never want your QB to get hit that much, that was a major learning experience for that offensive line."
