Moore wasn’t bad today. Good tackling and much better coverage by the defensive backfield.

Weatherspoon looks good also.

do you know if William Moore will start Sunday against the Saints? If yes, he will be tested by the bevy of receivers available to Brees. However, this is a game the Falcons are capable of winning. Let’s go Birds!!!
