ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the American football team Atlanta Falcons and some of its key players. The team likely will use CB DeAngelo Hall on punt returns and FB Justin Griffith or WR Michael Jenkins on kick returns in place of CB Allen Possum, who is expected to miss two games with a knee injury suffered against the Carolina Panthers. Coordinator Greg Knapp needs to make sure opponents don't tee off on QB Michael Vick the way the Panthers did Sunday. Knapp can counter by using the National Football League's top running attack more and by keeping an extra back or a tight end in for pass protection.
