Why Can't The Falcons Run The Ball?

Good news Mike Smith is coming to town...


Duane talks about his pet peeves when it comes to not picking up first downs on short yardage by running power formations. The Falcons have multiple threats on offense and sometimes having too many options means no options in situational football. Duane wonders what happens to the running game when you have a Fullback you do not utilize on the goalline. The positive point is Mike Smith defense has not fared well vs Matt Ryan in their previous 4 meetings Matt Ryan is 97/145, 1,221 yds, 8 TD's, 0 INT, 111.3 Passer Rating. Julio Jones feasts on Mike Smith as well  41 Targets, 27 Catches, 484 yds, 4 TD's, Passer rating when targeted 138.7.
