3 massive questions we still have about the Atlanta Falcons

Three questions we have about the 2024 Atlanta Falcons before the draft

Every offseason, teams have to ask themselves one question: Did we get better? For the Atlanta Falcons, the answer is a crystal-clear ‘yes.’

Adding Kirk Cousins fixes the biggest issue of last year’s team. They did not have a consistent quarterback and with him, they are easily a better team. Past that, they did not lose much in free agency and they were able to significantly improve the talent at wide receiver.

With all that being said, we still have these three questions about the 2024 Falcons.

Question No. 1: Will Kirk Cousins return to full health?

An Achilles injury in your mid-30s is something no one wants. While the success rate of rehabbing a torn Achilles is high, it is still far from certain.

The Falcons put a lot of trust and money in Cousins making a full recovery, they better be certain that he will recover.

The good news is that he isn’t Lamar Jackson, he is a pocket passer who isn’t going to put extra stress on his tendon.

Even if Cousins is back and ready for the regular season, you still have to worry if he will have had enough time to create chemistry with Drake London, Kyle Pitts, and co.

Question No. 2: Where will the sack production come from?

Haven’t been here before…

The Atlanta Falcons do not have any proven pass rushers on the roster right now. Arnold Ebiketie is the only name that you can reasonably expect ten sacks from. That is a massive problem.

Edge rusher is where they should look in the first round of the draft. They will be in trouble if they don’t. We cannot go into the season relying on Arnold Ebiketie and Lorenzo Carter.

At this point, barring some blockbuster trade, this will be a major question no matter what happens over the next few months. This team needs a couple of players to step up if they want an elite defense in 2024.

Question No. 3: How smoothly will the transition be to two new schemes and a new coaching staff?

Look at the history of the NFL, teams do not usually transition smoothly into a new scheme. Things take time and with how complex schemes are, it can take a year or two to get things rolling.

The Falcons offense will be moving from a scheme that was reliant on tight ends to one that is more spread out with three wide receivers. On the other side of the ball, the defense has to move from a base 4-3 to a 3-4. Those are complete switches that may take a year to implement.

Think about Kyle Shanahan, his first year was rough and fans were calling for him to get fired but in his second year he led one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history.

The Falcons need to do everything they can to get things rolling from week one.
