THE DOME – In the aftermath of last night’s scrimmage, here are five things that we learned about the Falcons.
1. Backup safety Jamaal Fudge, the former Clemson standout, can deliver the big hit (see above). With William Moore down for two to four weeks perhaps he’ll jump in and battle Thomas DeCoud for the starting strong safety spot.
2. Precision passing attacks never look get early. Too many dropped balls and high passes.
3. Christopher Owens showed that he can play. He made some nice plays on the ball and in run support. The battle for the left cornerback is heating up.
4. Running back Jerious Norwood ran more determined. And, oh yeah, he’s still pretty darn fast.
5. Quarterback Matt Ryan ran very well on the scrimmage’s first play. He ran up the middle for 12 yard gain.
About to head down to the field for the Mock Game at the “Roam the Dome” event. Will try to learn some more things here.
