What’s your concern stage with the absence of A.J. Terrell for at the moment’s sport?
Conway: Not going to sugarcoat this one, this can be a powerful loss for the Falcons. With out Kendall Sheffield and A.J. Terrell, the Falcons will depend on Isaiah Oliver, Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Darqueze Dennard at the moment at cornerback. I might be extra involved if this was in Week 1 or 2 with these quarterbacks, however once more, my concern stage is excessive.
McFadden: I believe Kelsey is spot on. It helps that that is Mitch Trubisky and never Russell Wilson or Dak Prescott, however these two gamers earned Offensive Participant of the Week honors after going through the Falcons, and that was with Terrell within the fold. He performed properly in opposition to the Cowboys, and it isn’t good to see any participant go on the reserve/COVID-19 listing. He was all the time going to be an necessary participant for this staff, however they must make do with out him in opposition to the Bears.
Tabeek: I believe it is an enormous concern anytime you discover out your starter is out simply hours earlier than a sport. However, as you realize in any sport when another person goes down, it is subsequent man up. Atlanta is presently permitting 476.5 yards per sport, which ranks 31 out of 32 groups, and is giving up a median 39.zero factors per sport, which is worst within the league. The Bears have watched the Falcons’ first two video games, too, and can clearly search for methods to assault this protection. And till the Falcons can show they will cease offenses, groups will assault them in the identical method, regardless if A.J. Terrell is enjoying or not. If the Falcons can generate a go rush in opposition to Chicago, that can actually assist the again finish of the protection.
