    Is Russell Wilson the right fit for the Atlanta Falcons?

    Is Russell Wilson the right fit for the Atlanta Falcons?

    The Atlanta Falcons intend to leave no stone unturned when it comes to finding a new starting quarterback, which may include adding some imperfect solutions including current Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson. Host Aaron Freeman breaks down why the Broncos will certainly part ways with Wilson and why he could be an option for the Falcons looking for a cheap, veteran player. But he expresses his skepticism on Wilson's potential fit in the Zac Robinson-led Falcons offense.

    Later, he discusses why Wilson's wife Ciara and her ex, Future, might prevent him from being fully embraced by the city of Atlanta. He also breaks down why Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Baker Mayfield could be a potential option given his background working with Robinson in Los Angeles, and whether or not a new team might not get the same results. He also discusses Rams QB Carson Wentz's performance in their 2023 season finale, and whether he's an option to start or be a backup for the Falcons.

    Atlanta Football Party With Tenitra, Jarvis, Aaron and Tori: The Falcons Should Pick Up Pitts' Fifth-Year Option

    The Atlanta Falcons have a big decision to make in May when they will have to make a decision on Kyle Pitts’ fifth-year option. Raheem Morris will have to assess what Pitts has done on the football field and the injuries he has had to deal with as well. Tenitra Batiste, Tori McElhaney, Aaron Freeman and Jarvis Davis talked about whether or not the Falcons should pick up that year that is worth 10.5 million dollars. Secondly, the team discussed quarterbacks coach T.J. Yates comments about the quarterback position. The Falcons have one priority in 2024 and that is to get a quality starting quarterback. Also, the Falcons aren’t hiding the fact that they are looking for one, starting with Arthur Blank. Lastly, they discussed how the Falcons may be the team to finally get out of this rut of mediocrity that is Atlanta sports outside of the Atlanta Braves.

    Michigan's J.J. McCarthy can rise up draft boards to be Atlanta Falcons next QB

    Michigan's J.J. McCarthy can rise up draft boards to be Atlanta Falcons next QB

    The Atlanta Falcons can find a possible answer at quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft by selecting Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy. Host Aaron Freeman goes through a recent mock draft from Benjamin Solak (@theringer) that had the Falcons selecting McCarthy with the eighth overall selection. Aaron breaks down why McCarthy's stock is on the rise, why he'll be inevitable compared to Desmond Ridder, but also why he thinks McCarthy is a better bet than some other alternative options like Justin Fields.

    Later, he looks at alternative selections in the first round of the draft including Alabama edge-rusher Dallas Turner and LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers. Finally, he answers a listener question about whether or not there needs to changes in how teams should evaluate QBs based on this year's postseason results.

    How will Atlanta Falcons switch back to 3-4 scheme improve their defense?

    How will Atlanta Falcons switch back to 3-4 scheme improve their defense?

    The Atlanta Falcons new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson and defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake spoke to the media for the first time on Wednesday. Host Aaron Freeman and guest Jarvis Davis (@LockedOnATL) break down their biggest takeaways including the news that the defense will be reverting back to a 3-4 defensive front under Lake. They discuss how that scheme change will help young players like Arnold Ebiketie, DeAngelo Malone, Zach Harrison, but may hurt veterans like Grady Jarrett and David Onyemata.

    They also discuss the team's need to bolster their depth along the interior of the defensive line and whether or not the draft or free agency is the best avenue to do so. Later, they break down Robinson's comments about the team's need at quarterback and whether soon-to-be-traded Chicago Bears passer Justin Fields, or some other player best fits the role.

    Atlanta Falcons have many opportunities to find the right fit at quarterback in 2024 NFL Draft

    Atlanta Falcons have many opportunities to find the right fit at quarterback in 2024 NFL Draft

    The Atlanta Falcons are looking for the right fits for their team under new head coach Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator Zac Robinson, especially at quarterback. Host Aaron Freeman and guest Trevor Sikkema (@NFLStockExchange) break down the top four quarterbacks in the 2024 NFL Draft: Caleb Williams (Southern California), Drake Maye (North Carolina), Jayden Daniels (LSU), and J.J. McCarthy (Michigan) and their potential to work in Atlanta's offense.

    Later, they look at positions of need for the Falcons beyond the quarterback position that could be in the mix for their first round pick. Trevor discusses two premier wide receivers in Malik Nabers (LSU) and Rome Odunze (Washington), and three pass-rushers: Dallas Turner (Alabama), Jared Verse (Florida State), and Byron Murphy II (Texas). Trevor also breaks down a sleeper in Iowa defensive back Cooper DeJean, who could be a versatile Jalen Ramsey-esque playmaker in the Falcons secondary. Finally, they look at Day 2 prospects that could fit the Falcons at wide receiver, edge rusher, and defensive tackle in the second or third rounds.

    Are Atlanta Falcons the best landing spot for Justin Fields?

    Are Atlanta Falcons the best landing spot for Justin Fields?

    The Atlanta Falcons are looking for a new quarterback, and Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields is a big name that is expected to be traded. Host Aaron Freeman is joined by guest Lorin Cox (@LockedOnBears) to discuss Fields' trade value and potential fit in Atlanta. They break down whether Fields' running ability or passing potential will be the key to continued improvement.

    Later, Aaron discusses why he went from someone that advocated for the Falcons to draft Fields in 2021, to being lukewarm on trading for him in 2024. He argues why the Falcons could justify a Fields trade along similar lines as their justifications for Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder in recent years. He also breaks down why he thinks Fields won't be atop their wishlist, but what would need to occur for the Falcons to pick up the phone with the Bears.

Level headed

I love that Aaron gives a level headed point of view on the Falcons moves not too excited or not too down on the moves.

hivetalklive ,

New sound, new podcast

Host got a new mic or something. Sounds is much better and the analysis has always been on point. I’ll be listening.

Informative and Thought Provoking

I thoroughly enjoy listening to this podcast because each time I learn more about my team and how they win or lose. Most importantly, I either get pumped up or angry at the host because he says things that make me think. @keith_lisenbee
