The article focuses on the football team Atlanta Falcons. At safety, only Ronnie Heard is worth bringing back, and he should be a backup. Jonathan Babineaux took Smith's place, but he lost the job to Chauncey Davis. The team will not re-sign LT Kevin Shaffer, and Frank Omiyale could take his job, Omiyale has a nasty streak that should serve the team well. The team needs to use a high pick and spend free-agent money on a tackle. Predictable game plans allowed opponents to stuff the box and seal off cutback lanes. the grade drops a letter because DBs Keion Carpenter and Bryan Scott weren't benched at midseason.
