If the Atlanta Falcons stay healthy this year — something they weren’t able to do at all last season — it wouldn’t be shocking to see head coach Dan Quinn resurrect the same kind of efforts seen when the Falcons reached the Super Bowl not long ago.
Of course, the offense might not reach record levels. But “good enough” should be good enough for Quinn and Co., especially considering Atlanta still boasts a potent combination of quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Devonta Freeman, wide receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.
It might be time to give up on pass-rusher Vic Beasley, though, and the Falcons defense still has to contend with arguably the most talented offensive division in the NFL in 2019.
Quinn might be able to resurrect Beasley’s career, too, especially if his supporting cast stays on the field this season.
Fortunately, however, the Falcons still have enough firepower on offense to make up for any moderate defensive lapses They didn’t enjoy that a season ago.
