Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Arthur Smith joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the team’s disappointing loss on Sunday and why wasn’t Kyle Pitts used more once the team got inside the red zone on Sunday against the Eagles?

When asked about why Kyle Pitts wasn’t used more in the red zone Sunday afternoon.

“Let’s be real that’s a real kind of surface thinking narrative. Sometimes it’s as practical as a guy is tired, he was in there the plays before, we got a lot of guys you scheme around. Certain plays, certain concepts we feel good whether it’s Hayden or him,” Smith said. “Those are the easy ones to criticize but sometimes it’s as simple as there is something going on and a guy comes out, next guy’s gotta go up.”

“It happened a million times where we may have schemed something up for AJ Brown, he had an issue and the next guy’s up and the next guy scored. So that’s what happened in some of those, we’re clearly in tune with who’s in there and who’s not.”
