Led by the now-veteran Matt Ryan, the Falcons come into 2019 with high hopes. They finished just 7-9 last year, seeming less and less like that 2016/17 that went on that beautiful Super Bowl run. Matt Ryan is at the helm again this year for his 12th season with the Falcons. The offense finished strongly last year with the 10th most yards of any team in the NFL. Ryan threw for 35 TDs (tied for 3rd in the NFL) and finished with 4,924 passing yards (3rd in NFL). The Ryan/Julio Jones tandem continues to be lethal, as Jones finished first in the NFL last year with 1,677 receiving yards. Well, this all sounds good, so what went wrong? Well, for starters, the offensive line didn't produce enough in the run-block category as the Falcons finished with the 5th least rushing yards in the NFL. Lots of injuries and a botched pass-rush/run-defense caused the Falcons to have one of the worst defenses in the league last year.

Top 3 Falcons Roster Questions of 2019-2020

What can we expect from the offensive line this year?

The Falcons did two big things in the offensive realm this offseason. First, they hired a new offensive coordinator in Dirk Koetter. Koetter formerly was the head coach of the Buccaneers after Lovie Smith's firing. He has been offensive coordinator for the Falcons before, from 2012-2014 under coach Mike Smith. The second thing the Falcons did (and well) was make their first two selections in the draft (both first rounders) be offensive linemen. As Matt Ryan gets older, he'll need more protection and the Falcons are doing right by him and themselves for investing this way. Ryan is playing some of the best football of his career lately, so it's best to not miss out on this opportunity while it's right in front of them. OG Chris Lindstrom (pick 14) and OT Kaleb McGary (pick 31) will spruce up this offensive line and give it the life it so badly needs, hopefully giving us better production from the backfield.

Will we see better production from the defense this year?

The Falcons did a clean sweep of many of their higher ups in the off-season, letting the offensive, defensive, and special teams coordinators go. This season, head coach Dan Smith (formerly defensive coordinator for the Seahawks) will take over and being calling plays on the defensive side. There wasn't much in the way of the draft or free agency on the defensive side of things, but as key parts to this defense start to get healthy again, we can expect to see better production. The Falcons did sign defensive tackle Tyeler Davison (formerly of the Saints). In four seasons with the Saints, Davison has recorded 95 tackles, 9 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. There were a few more free agency signings of defensive players that will fill in the latter part of the depth chart. All in all, it seems like the Falcons went all in on offense this offseason with less concern around the defensive side of things. I see the defense improving on last years results, but not by a ton.

What can we expect of new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter?

Obviously, we won't know exactly what to expect from Koetter until we see the way the Falcons offense is operating come the fall. However, we can speculate. Koetter has gone on the record saying he hopes to bring back a balance to this offense which had such a large discrepancy between their pass and run games last season. It'll also be reassuring for any Falcons fan to note the familiarity Koetter has with the Falcons, as he was their offensive coordinator from 2012-14. This familiarity extends especially to QB Matt Ryan, who earned the Pro-Bowl accolade twice during Koetter's 3 year stint with the Falcons. Koetter also appears to be a believer in the Falcon's current style of offense, but wants to make a few minor tweaks (mainly in the name of balance).
