Terry Fontenot needs to think about building this team for the long haul, not just 2021

Matt Ryan turns 36 in May. Julio Jones just turned 32. Both guys still can produce at a high level, but it’s clear that 2021 may be the last time we see both of them on the field as teammates. It’s hard to blame fans that want to see these two Atlanta greats go out with a bang.

There’s plenty of reasons to think the Falcons can compete again in 2021 with Ryan and Julio leading the charge. The simple improvement of the coaching staff may be enough to get this team back around .500 and maybe more.
