Chris Dimino from 790 Atlanta previews the Bears-Falcons game on CTL - 9/9
Falcons ready for Sunday's season opener looking to put -- -- play out disappointment behind them first got airport on the Falcons let's go to Chicago express hotline -- are back Chris demeanor out 790 the zone in Atlanta. Chris Matt Ryan outstanding quarterback Julio Jones Roddy White Michael the burner turner. Guys are loaded with play makers how good is this football team in your opinion. Over the last expert Michael Turner in a while this team certainly need more explosive plays that was the word around here certainly all see right through the draft both offensively and defensively. I still think they wanna be running team and you know Michael Turner is again and almost nervous about 880 plus carries over the last three years we have all He can warrant surgery. I'm sorry nobody's and then mistake came when you -- an -- more on the field as a guy who looked as physically fit as perhaps you might want. I don't know the benefactor is too big I also kind of wondering now. If He can't give you when He gave you his first you're happier with what game planet that don't want a ball it's snowing or Rogers. Or is it actually doing you did against Pittsburgh and appreciate in game three. To the -- Grease throw the football 42 -- in the first after a -- -- game a lot of talk about given up on the run. If you haven't given up one run 12 weeks in the regular season has been gonna have to hole would be something not about -- -- recognize. Hey Chris its Jason got forgotten Sports Radio let's continue with the Falcons offense you mentioned some questions about the running game. But they also got some issues on the offensive line is one of us are starting -- McClure is gonna be out for this game. Is this a case may be in game number one against the Bears the early in the year obviously the first came to you could see the Falcons offense struggling not only does the running game. But issues on the offensive line as well. You know everybody knows -- or -- -- right next door now all He is a -- Garrett Reynolds is never really done -- -- different about how much space center or guard occupied I'm primarily. Not necessarily change what I do but there's a chance Julius Peppers might want a little bit inside. You might see that outlook and punch those guys an amount the early in a whatever exchange problems whether it's in the no huddle. I think the one thing about that goal form is this -- an -- now and Seattle where we're gonna have to use necessarily a silent count as boisterous in big crowd noise. I don't think. At least this is sort of what I understand Soldier Field is not conducive to have a little or no huddle it will be more difficult if they were in certain places in the NFL because of that lack of really experienced between these two guys exchange -- operatives Jenner. Quarterback of the offensive line it is going to be interesting to see and I'm really series record that you take shots early. Try to stop -- those guys a little bit remember this. He can't run the right side that means there you playbook and you rounding goes away. That's going to be good and I'm gonna find most interesting the first quarter quarter -- half out of that offensive line the -- parts and pieces actually -- order they -- on the heels. -- the -- and Ryan with the Chicago Tribune I'm also curious about. The lines but come on the other side with Atlanta's defense of line I know they add up and the guy with -- Ray Edwards who can had eight sacks last year and John Abraham obviously is really strong attacking what's their plan trying to get to Cutler who obviously -- -- problems with sacks last year. Yeah it was a it was an abominable behind number -- got one and they move pieces around and spent -- -- -- -- -- -- here trying nobody Abraham is -- going to be healthier than He is in game one he's got every move and a lot when you're right when delectable yet. The ball linebackers trying to -- color the color the ability to actually extend the place sometimes we'll get him in trouble. Got a field is going to be moment in this game where he's gonna run into you Ray Edwards John Abraham could or somewhere in the backfield and it is there a guy might be -- women in the other direction. I believe yes I like the fountain in the scheme of one thing happens if the defense to one of the Atlanta problems. And the end is the most important valuable. Unit on the field and I think they have the capability against that offensive line. And the fact that these guys are fresh I think the Falcons when the game I've always said you know we're talking about colonel mark and -- it's more than two. I don't want that number in third down efficiency. If you told me I I watched not one minute every game but at the end you can meet what you do on third down how do you stop the other guys are getting pretty good chance song who won that game. I do think the defense of one of the Falcons is the MVP of this thing you know wide and I think that ultimately happen -- the game. Chris what do you expect to what people in Atlanta expect out of the Atlanta Falcons know they really seriously say and we've got a Super Bowl contender here are people saying now not quite so sure the running game's not real strong. May be -- good team but not elite or they expect thirteen and three and go to the big game. You know the dancing that took place that Saturday night against Green Bay really got things temperate I don't think they expect thirteen straight and so she's and don't fall out of this guy you have to have. So when things go right most importantly this team has -- like not many teams in the NFL last year and also long games. -- limit Chicago is Sam -- last. The count was seven to Chicago's seventh straight I don't know if you can actually trust those numbers come -- -- this year. You know my contention is it out here for eleven just hit -- January I don't hear you don't get a weak call and one in division just get in January. And and find out people play better when the white hot spotlight on the but at what these guys the most picked up about it. You know the whole world -- -- this Saturday night postseason game and everybody knows of you know Aaron Rodgers was ridiculously hot but now aren't to a really bad picture. For the first half they may be good lineup for be able to trust their quarterback. He didn't make a play I think there's pressure on the team now you know it's the feel good going into the -- the last three years at home they can you money's worth that. You know Smit -- all in Lional chronicle the opposite things all got under way. But now the times come to win January games then and I think that's what the expectation this year but I can project. That game against Green Bay. Really just left one of those old feelings in your mouth and until they do something about that you don't do anything about that -- or. You certainly don't want to think about that every play well when you -- games but I think now this has become a January football team and the right to steal more friends in the midwest but it's really -- and kind of show me state right now show who you gonna do one when everybody thinks you're good. And I don't have another opportunity back to back you can do. -- as we like to go give us a prediction what happens in this football game. I like I like the Falcons. I feel like you don't help but want can scares me as much is probably should scare anybody else I look at maybe 28 when He came opponents early April scores around very often but I just think -- -- Have enough offense I think there're also local color position where he's not going to be comfortable earlier in this game. Should be an advantage ignore on the road and I'll be very honest I think Chicago was an over the last ten years the number is sixteen from last year's postseason will not get back this year. I think Chicago's one of those you know -- -- and Falcons -- immune -- that. It's strange things do -- up and down. But I think Chicago's one of those teams are you guys feel that might be one of those six or at least is probably a little bit nervous that they could be one of the six set and a C championship game last year. I'll always Detroit really every bit as good as -- and three from that division or not I don't. Chris thank you rob able talk with the next week as we review this game and I enjoy the match up.
