"A bigger loss in that, we all know that It's easy to get up in the emotions of first game and certainly with this coaching staff that is carryover from two thousand nineteen. You have every right not to have faith in den Quinn other in the rest that said I do think there are some positives to take away from this game and As I said before the first game, the NFL season is rarely ever a predictor of how the rest of season is going to go. So if you're wondering why you should continue watch the Falcons for the. Twenty season. Stay with us, I do think that this team has lots offer look at the wide receiver a rotation in what they did today look at what Todd Gurley did early in the first-half look at what the offensive line was able to do and I think you can find some reasons to to to build some optimism even if ultimately, no, we know the Atlanta. Falcons, they're gonNA crush hearts. So and I have one more. Leave your clothes on I. mentioned it on twitter in I. Think it's important to remember this.

"Guys welcome to the Alcohol IX post game podcast with two thousand nineteen season eight the The falcons hosting the Seattle seahawks joining me as always is my co host and fellow writer at the Falcon Hollick. Evan Burchfield Evan how you doing not too bad considering we just lost the I mean I think we were all expecting a much more devastating loss in you can you know be not to go into too much detail will cover but you can realistically see a way that the Falcons could have won this game they weren't really outplayed or anything like that so yeah I mean I wish I had some more negatively bring like I have the last couple of weeks but like I actually felt good about this law so I don't know what about you season where we're one in seven this was the least disappointing loss we've suffered an obviously for those who are following along the seahawks did win this game is expected twenty seven to twenty the falcons were down I remember I twenty four to nothing at halftime so the outscored the seahawks twenty two three in the second half which is something to be noted something else to point out first game since two thousand two thousand nine two thousand nine since Matt Ryan has missed a Game Matt Shaab got the start played really well in his absence author so let's let's start with the start conversation with the offense Evan obviously I just mentioned Matt Shaab a thirty eight year old up thirty nine fifty to four hundred sixty yards one touchdown one interception what did you think of his performance in lieu of me Brian being on the bench it was actually very like it's What you want in a backup quarterback he was doing the right throws I mean yeah he did have that one interception where I believe he overthrew I think it was Julio in you know at that moment when that happened go boy here we go for he collapsed he actually like did well he spread the ball pretty well I mean Julio had a hundred and fifty yards or one hundred and fifty two yard Insane Ten receptions touchdowns but it's still like a really good day for Julio Costin Hooper he used a lot win six reception sixty five yards touchdown Ridley for reception seventy yard so if you notice he pretty much kept that same you know obviously said news is no longer with us but pretty much that trio of receivers you wanna be using devante Freeman you know was also used in the passing game as he has been in recent weeks a receptions for sixty three yards but yeah I mean having four I don't think anybody him to have four hundred sixty yards it's just it's absurd yeah it's a weird stat line I mean I was I honestly if you follow the Alcohol staff predictions that Gina Thomas Maybe it's Dave I think Dave does it puts like the day of the game usually in the morning may have a lot of our writers like score predictions for what we think will happen in the game I had the game like the seahawks went in like forty one to seventeen I certainly didn't expect it to be this close match Shaab through fifty two times and have a ninety nine ninety nine point eight quarterback rating He definitely played better than what I expected from him so to add to that you know you mentioned the receiving yards for the Falcons I think one point out the rushing yards devante thirteen carries thirty nine yards again another underwhelming performance on the ground but Brian Hill all three carries twenty nine yards and the touchdown he actually looked pretty impressive in the very few carries he got makes you wonder if he's going to be more of a factor after the bye week he is someone that stood out in the preseason he stood out again and again limited carries so we we should put that with a grain of salt but in the limited series he got he looked very good in to add to the receiving numbers you mentioned Julio Calvin Austin in Davonte L. factoring in the one named that stood out to me was Russell gauge seven receptions fifty eight yards and he would win that we knew with being gone now to the Patriots that you know the Falcons were likely going to look to him in just in hardy already had two receptions for twenty three yards gauged looks like is already beginning to slide in as that true third wide receiver even if he is maybe the fourth or fifth option in the passing game but seven seven receptions for Kathy yards is a pretty good start for the second year player Al Villas what's your impression of how the Falcons this gauge and does it give you some encouragement that maybe as we're going to twenty twenty this receiving core behind Jones relieved that gauge may be able to pick up some slack yeah I mean even dating back to this preseason you were pretty much talking highly of gauge but obviously at the time we really wasn't enough ball to go around for him to have any sort of impact in also worth mentioning when your quarterback throws it fifty two times that does free up a lot of receptions in day definitely went his way Julio left a little bit with a I don't know what he was on the sideline with something they might have been just Ankle or knee just kind of roughed up but he did return in Ridley also left the game with a look like concussion but he somehow came back so aged basically was able to take advantage of those snaps where he was able to get in there pretty much to start and he had a solid day in I like like that the ball was spread around enough for him to be able to have an impact Because I mean seven receptions for fifty yards to some people's probably not a big deal but like he looked really good in plays they're the type you have to kind of just see I do like the prospect of him going forward I think the wide receiver Amine as we we've been pretty much blessed with having good Rome wide receivers over the last decade in a he looks the part so I mean it's GonNa be interesting but again when your quarterback fifty two times a normal day Russell Wilson only through twenty times if Shaba only through it twenty times you're looking gauge may be having two receptions at most most riot inflates yeah it kind of influences number so I don't WanNa get who excited but I do think he's got the talent he's very young athletic like he's got everything you wine that kind of third receiver I mean we'll see what happens but you know a good day is usually Julio in hooper at least that's what it looks like going forward Julio Hooper and Ridley eating in engaged is definitely better at like upgrade over hardy who still played a part today but I think that was more because the ball was thrown fifty two times and then there was a couple of injuries like that but Yeah I I don't know I liked him did you did you think he was you know adding more to the office ends while out there it's I think he in you know obviously losing a receiver who was teeter totter in between what you would consider wide receiver too wide receiver three with way they were using him he did a good job if you're replacing that type of productivity Ridley obviously stepped up for receptions seventy yards arguably could have had more he to have the two point conversion early in the game and obviously if you combine Jones Ridley Hooper they went for almost three hundred yards between the three of them which is to your point is what you want to see you wanna see these guys your top three guys add up for the majority of receiving yards where I think aged factors in is obviously was gone he's going to get more targets and he took advantage of him he had nine targets and seven receptions off those non targets and you know he he did a fairly good job of becoming a factor in this offense where he was catching almost everything that went his way nothing really big from explosive standpoint but just solid solid performance and again for someone who is in the second year was considered a very Rau- wide receiver coming out of Lsu it's encouraging the say he has grown a lot from his rookie year to the second year be very curious to see after the bye week if we see more of gauge in this offense because you know one of the things consider is with the Falcons running game absolutely just struggling you know look let's be blunt this point the Falcons just not getting it done on the ground period again not a shock for a Dirk other offense unfortunately but they are they've been woefully inadequate they're gonNA have to make their offense work in the air and that means that you know Hind Jones Ritalin hooper you need guys like Gaijin hardy to contribute another name that another pass again this is someone that's on the preseason I'm little frustrated we haven't seen more have more of him during the regular season was Jaden Graham he had a reception for eleven yards in the key believe I think it was the down conversion I may be wrong but he is someone that also stood out so if you're looking towards twenty twenty and you're looking at this falcons offense I see several reasons from a skill standpoint to be optimistic you've got obviously the Jones Ridley Hooper and it sounds like the Falcons are in keeping Hooper based on all the rumors we've seen they're not gonNA trade him which which would be an indication that they're it very intent on keeping him I would not be surprised if we see see him signed to a long term deal over the next few weeks now with the money freed up from the snow being traded patriots but if you're looking at you know the the passing offense behind these guys you got Russell Gauge you've got Jaden Graham who is showing potential as second receiving tight end it makes you feel a lot better about where this team may be in twenty twenty from offensive standpoint obviously we're going to about the defense and where they stand in just a little bit but if I'm thinking purely offense purely where this team is headed going into the next season and I feel pretty good about that how do you feel about what you saw today just just as far as projecting into the next season I mean we definitely have the talent I think we got the towel right now to win you know it's just not happening I think the run game needs a lot more help in I think having take a offensive mind who is intercut hill have like a good game you know limited action obviously but he had a solid game in you know he was on he was one of our Game Day in actives spur what couple weeks start the season and pretty much came in because Y- Smith went out with the concussion or whatever so you know maybe they'll use him some more and.

"Dogma Hollick year and par a happy new year to you as we are about to celebrate or are celebrating the new year nail in the sky gets uploaded. Welcome to the Hollick post game podcast. I'm your host court Woodruff, and you know, New Year's new beginnings. And we are saying goodbye to a falcon season two thousand eighteen is in the books putting this on the shelf, and now swear, and we are, you know, preparing to get to a point where we can look ahead and try to be optimistic for the future. If you know me, and you know, this podcast, you know, that's the brand here. We really do try to be optimistic and try to look for that silver lining wherever we can find it. And you know, it's just one of the difficult things about a bad season as that you can kind of get a bit dismayed in the discord. But you know, shut my friends. Let's try to look ahead to the future. And we've got plenty to talk about. In that regard. And I enjoyed the course by none other than Evan burchfield of the Hollick Evan. Thank you so much for joining us and how're you doing as we transitioned into those nineteen. Thanks for having me on again, Corey doing great hope everyone has a happy new year and starts off the year. Right. And yeah, let's talk about this Alcan's in books finale. Yes. A game that they were once down seventeen zero and one which is a very non falcon thing to happen. Usually we don't have big comebacks against teams like this. But usually what happens the other way around were up by a lot. And we end up, you know, throwing the lead in the trash can. But I think that there is a lot that you can look at the scheme and the optimist about the be able to think after a really tough season finish it on a strong note. And it didn't drop them a lot in the traff rankings. So they might miss out on you guys because they were able to win this game from where they originally were. But sometimes it's hard to control that and you have to take it. How it comes so Evan? We're a couple of things you saw on Sunday that made you feel. All the mystic for the future. I think like what you said about the comeback. It's not something where used to where usually on the other end of blowing the lead, obviously. But I mean, you pretty much Saul Matt Ryan have you know, you had a pretty good game. Yet is I ever I think I read somewhere that was the first ever quarterback reception per touchdown or whatever for the falcons or in south consistory, or whatever. So that was pretty cool to see Julio was, you know, back to his normal self like he's been doing all year. So that's pretty exciting. And then he, you know, finished off the year as the with the most reception yards this season, the whole NFL. So I mean, the offense is cranking, and you know, defenses whatever, but it was the bucks and it was the final game. And it's you know, it's hard to really put a lot of stock in anything. But it was. A good. It was a good win. And I love how it ended with Matt Bryant kicking the win the game against the team that he spent you know, decent portion of his career with. Yeah. It was good ending to the season. Even though there's no playoffs or anything. It was. It was a great send off I think into twenty nineteen. Yeah. I think those are good points. You bring up Matt Bryant. And I do wanna talk about him just for a second. He's still on contract with the team next year. He was very very reliable all season. The only missed one field goal that was a belief from like fifty seven out didn't go in or not think he made that one. There was another is another long field goal where they just he just didn't have the distance on it because of his kind of his ailment with his leg..
