Biermann could garner a starting job in Atlanta

Kroy Biermann was one of the few bright stars for the Falcons in their Thursday night loss to the Patriots. So maybe it should come as no surprise that the third-year pro from Montana is inching closer to a starting job.

Biermann has two sacks and two forced fumbles in the preseason. His high energy and ability to shed blocks on the lateral move make him as potent (or at least almost as potent) against the run as against the pass.

After Thursday’s game, Falcons head coach Mike Smith was asked if Biermann was in contention for a starting job.
"There’s no doubt about it," Smith said. "Production is what it’s all about, and Kroy is definitely making a statement with his play in these first two ballgames."

Biermann isn’t getting carried away. "I want to help this team win," he said, according to Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journa Constitution . "I don't care how they want to use me. I don't care if that's special teams. If it's on the [defensive] line dropping into coverage or rushing. Whatever they want me to do, I'll do it and do it to the best of my ability."

Biermann, a former fifth-round pick, had five sacks last season as a situational pass-rusher. If he is to start, he’ll have to beat out former first-round pick Jamaal Anderson. Anderson has been a disappointment as a pass-rusher, but he is very stout against the run.
