Wes Durham joined Dukes and Bell Wednesday and told the guys his thoughts on the Atlanta Falcons' offense.

“I think the team has to be more balanced on offense," said the Atlanta Falcons Radio Network play-by-play voice. "I thought Thursday night one of the bigger issues they had was the running game.”

When asked about why the team has signed Brian Hill to the active roster...

“I think Brian Hill has been brought in to cover a couple of things up," said Durham. "If Devonta can’t go, I think it will be Tevin [Coleman] and Ito Smith. Brian Hill will be a special teams guy. If he plays from scrimmage it would be a small package.”

Durham talked about the Falcons moving forward without Deion Jones and Keanu Neal...

“I think Atlanta did a pretty good job defensively, but the issues they face now with Keanu and Deion out are complex," said Durham. "They just lost their two leading tacklers from last season and some guys are going to have to step up.”
