The Atlanta Falcons have made a number of significant changes to the franchise this offseason, which has led to some big developments for the Dirty Birds.
The changes come at a time when the Falcons are attempting to stay competitive in a suddenly deep NFC Conference. A year ago Atlanta finished with a 10-6 record and a second-place finish in the NFC South but were embarrassed in the Wild Card round of the playoffs by the New York Giants.
The offense last season was stellar in Atlanta, with the only noticeable weakness coming in the running game. Defensively the unit gave up too many passing yards and failed to put enough pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
This offseason the Falcons have adequately addressed the majority of the team's weaknesses in the hopes of advancing well past the Wild Card round.
