Will Atlanta now choose to bolster their pass rush?

FinalizeThe Falcons pass rush is my most persistent concern with this team, something that has continued with only brief interruptions since I started The Falcoholic back in 2006. Atlanta has made do with inferior talent so often—or more precisely, not really made do at all—that it can be easy to think 2021 just figures to be more of the same.

And that’s easy to think because it’s probably true, to be clear. The Falcons hired Dean Pees in part because of his track record of pulling together quality defenses even when the personnel on hand isn’t ideal, as he did in Tennessee back in 2018 and 2019.
