Power Rankings
They have statistically one of the worst defenses ever. Even Matt Ryan and his high-flying passing game can't overcome that all the time.
They are a much different team at home than on the road. They have to break that pattern starting this week at Minnesota.
The offensive line just didn't give Matt Ryan any time to throw against the Bengals. That unit has to be better.
They will be explosive on offense all season long if Matt Ryan can play like he did against the Saints. The concern is the defense heading to Cincinnati this week.
They will score a ton of points as long as Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are on the field. The question is their pass rush on defense.
They've added a lot of key pieces on both lines, but have they done enough? The offense, if healthy, will be explosive.
I think last season was more of an aberration and they've added some important pieces to get bigger and tougher. With guys back healthy, they will push New Orleans in the NFC South.
I think they are in for a bounce-back season in 2014. But they have to get tougher up front on both lines.
The top priority is to get bigger and stronger on both lines. They will come roaring back next season.
The fact they battled in San Francisco is good for the team moving forward. They are playing a ton of young guys.
