It’s been over a month since we dropped an Atlanta Falcons related episode of Bird Brehs and naturally a lot has transpired.
AD, Rome, Trent, and guest co-host Justin (@JCity123 on Twitter) broke down all the happenings with the team and gave their predictions for the upcoming draft and remainder of free agency.
To start off, we discussed the release of Roddy White and Marquand Manuel’s interview question at the Combine to Ohio State DB Eli Apple. We also looked at the Falcons free agent signings thus far and how the salary breakdown affects team flexibility moving forward.
What will the Front 7 look like? We talked the possibility of the Falcons signing Rams free agents, James Laurinaitis and Chris Long.
To finish up we discuss some draft prospects, a few more free agents and the Falcons draft strategy. Will they go heavy defense? Trade down in the 1st round?
Thanks to Justin for hopping on the podcast with us and shoutout to the Dirty Bird Nation Facebook group, as well.

The Falcons aren’t in it, but as die hard football fans we still had to discuss Super Bowl 50 between the Panthers and Broncos. Trent and Rome were joined by three Panthers fans. Dom (aka Morose Zeitgeist on thecoli.com) made his 2nd appearance on the show, Jon (@jonmalexander1), and Gene (@GenoSpadez) broke down their team and the Broncos, made some predictions, and talked some trash.
There was also Falcons talk, as we discussed the Week 16 L the Panthers took at the hands of the Dirty Birds. What did the Falcons do to exploit the Panthers? Can the Broncos do the same?
