All joking aside,Cheap Air Max Shoes For Sale, the Falcons must improve up front after a miserable 2013 season, when a team with Super Bowl aspirations staggered to a 4-12 mark. Much of the blame fell on the offensive line after quarterback Matt Ryan was sacked a career-high 44 times and Atlanta ranked last in the league in rushing, despite adding Steven Jackson.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) ? Through the first two days of training camp, the Atlanta Falcons look just fine along the offensive line.
"There's a ton of playmakers on this offense," he said. "My job is just to give them an opportunity to go out there and make plays."
"These guys are going to get an opportunity to really play football," the coach said. "It's going to be a really fun day."
Looking to address their most glaring need, the Falcons used the No. 6 overall pick on tackle Jake Matthews, who will move right into the lineup on the right side. The team also added free agent guard Jon Asamoah, another instant starter.
"We're out here in pajamas," guard Justin Blalock quipped.
But the process involves more than just a few new faces. The Falcons challenged the holdovers ? Blalock, center Joe Hawley and left tackle Sam Baker ? to bulk up in the weight room.
Of course, let's see how they do when they break out the pads.
Smith can't wait to see how the linemen fare.
NOTES: With a roster spot to fill, the Falcons signed WR Jabin Sambrano. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder has been on the practice squad with Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville but hasn't played in a regular-season game. Atlanta had an opening after waiving Darius Johnson on Friday, just hours before the first practice. Smith said he hasn't decided whether the team will carry five or six receivers. ... The coaches and staff were all wearing lime-green T-shirts during Saturday's practice to promote the organization's "Rise Up and Recycle" campaign. ... Atlanta is planning to use more formations along the defensive front,Cheap Jerseys 2018, hoping to confuse offenses and make up for what appears to be a lack of big-name talent. Early on, the Falcons have been using a 3-4 alignment with Tyson Jackson, Paul Soliai and Jonathan Babineaux as the down linemen, with Kroy Biermann and Jonathan Massaquoi as hybrid outside linebackers-ends. The team also is trying out four down linemen ? three of them natural ends ? for passing situations, with Biermann, Mallicah Goodman and Osi Umenyiora teaming up with Babineaux. ... Biermann, coming off a torn Achilles,Cheap Jerseys Store, is on a schedule where he practices two out of every three days.
"We have a good idea of how they can process what we're doing schematically," the coach said. "That doesn't always mean they're the best players. It's a whole lot different when you're in non-contact practices ... and then going out there and actually playing the game of football with a helmet, shoulder pads, knee pads and thigh pads."
The first practice in full pads is Monday.
"It's something you take personally," Blalock said. "As an offensive lineman, you pride yourself on running the football. We did that extremely poorly. There's no way around it."
"The message has been real clear from the very beginning: We want to get bigger and stronger,," coach Mike Smith said Saturday, after the team wrapped up another non-contact practice on a sweltering afternoon.
The beleaguered linemen were so outmatched at times, taking a holding penalty wasn't even an option. The defenders would go right on by them before they could even stick out a hand.
After reaching the NFC championship game during the 2012 season, the Falcons clearly skimped on the line, deciding to use much of their salary cap on high-profile offensive stars such as Ryan,Jose Calderon Jersey, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Tony Gonzalez and Jackson. But Jones went down with a season-ending injury, White was banged up much of the year, and the Falcons learned just how valuable it is to have guys who actually block someone once in a while.
Much of the attention will be on Matthews, a third-generation player whose father is Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews. There will certainly be a learning curve, but the rookie knows he won't get an extended period to show he belongs.

Smith likes what he sees so far, yet knows it's far too early to determine how much better the line will be.
The lack of success running the ball was especially frustrating,Nike Air Max 2018 Mens Shoes, especially since a hard-nosed ground game was a hallmark of Smith's team when he first came to Atlanta in 2008.
