Gonzo Returns, Defense Still Needs Help

Before I get into my first topic, I would like to say that I am thrilled to be blogging about sports, giving my opinions and hearing back from those of you that read and respond to our topics here on the Deep South Sports Blog.  I intend on bringing forth my opinions and stories to help generate some conversation, so get to reading and responding, because that’s what makes this fun, enjoy!

Now for the moment you have all been waiting for, my first topic writing on this already growing in popularity sports blog.  Those Atlanta Falcons getting back their boy at tight end for one more season to make a run at the Super Bowl.  Great for the Falcons, their offense specifically, and the fans, getting the Hall of Famer back.  My concern is still the weakest point, the main reason for the bouncing from the playoffs, the defense still needing to be addressed.  This news is great!  So celebrate Falcons fans, but don’t let it overshadow the fact that the defense still needs the work.  A team that finished the season ranked 23rd in passing defense and 21st in rushing defense needs more than Gonzo returning to fix its problems.  Free agency just started and the draft is on the way and D-line help and linebacker help is sorely needed.  So if I were the Falcons, I would search for someone who plays in the front 7 on defense to come right in and play,  a cheap but productive option more preferably.  So who should they sign? Who should they draft?  Let me know what you think and how you feel about this news.  Too bad Gonzo can’t go out there and be a Hall of Famer at D-lineman or linebacker right?

    1. That is a great example of someone that would be the kind of selection the Falcons need to go after. Someone that really impressed in the combine with his pure athletic ability and someone that even though overshadowed during his college career by Jarvis Jones, still did enough to stand out and prove to be a formidable defensive player and pass rusher. A second or third round pick in my opinion which would come cheap, you sign him to a 3 to 4 year deal and before you might have to pay him big money, you get to see how he can do. Plus a home town product, that would definitely fit into the “fan favorite” aspect from the crowd. I think a definite winner of a pick for the Falcons if they could land him.
