Why the Falcons need to be 'elite' in the red zone

Jon Chuckery and Gabe Burns discuss why the Atlanta Falcons need to be 'elite' in the red zone

In a recent article on NFL.com by Adam Schein, the Atlanta Falcons were listed as the number one football to that people should get on the bandwagon of. While Schein would list a number of reasons for making the Falcons a team that he likens to win the NFC South, “the addition of No. 8 overall pick, Bijan Robinson,” to go along with Drake London, Kyle Pitts, and Cordarrelle Patterson gives Atlanta head coach, Arthur Smith an opportunity to “create some fireworks,” Schein wrote.

On Thursday, 92-9 The Game host, Jon Chuckery spoke with the AJC’s Gabe Burns about Schein’s list, noting that he believed that with the offensive pieces, the Falcons “need to be an elite red zone team,” as second year quarterback, Desmond Ridder will plenty of options at his hands. “I completely agree,” Burn started with his response to Chuckery’s statement adding that the size for the Falcons also plays a role as to how much success the Falcons should have this season “and when you have Allgeier and Robinson as well, there’s no excuse. You have to be a great red zone team,” Burns added.
