The Falcons lost 28-10 to the Patriots on Thursday night. Lucky for them, it was just preseason.
SB Nation's The Falcoholic says they're not going to hit the panic button yet but there are a few slightly worrisome items.
In the preseason, backups play quite a bit and that was the case with the Falcons John Parker Wilson, who didn't exactly draw praise from The Falcoholic.
JPW couldn't throw his way out of a paper bag. His lack of arm strength really, really hurts him at times, and it was very apparent on the interception he threw in this one. At his best, he's an effective game manager who could be a capable backup. The thought of him ever starting for this football team scares the hell out of me.
Back to the first team for the good news. Once again, Kory Biermann had a good game. Last week against the Chiefs he caused a fumble and this time around he got a sack.
Kroy Biermann is truly awesome. When he was a rookie, he was an undersized defensive end with a motor who looked like the second coming of Josh Mallard. Now that he's got some time under his belt and some extra weight, he looks like a starting defensive end in the NFL to me. Three tackles, another sack and a jarring hit that forced a fumble. He's the real deal, folks.
