My Take: Wilson Has the Upper Hand Over Shockley

There's nothing scientific about the following; just a gut feeling, and my own intuition.

But there's no doubt that Chris Redman will be the Falcons' No. 2 QB, especially after he led the team from a late fourth-quarter deficit this past Saturday night to defeat the San Diego Chargers.

That leaves the battle for the No. 3 slot, and I'm guessing it's going to be John Parker Wilson.

D.J. Shockey is a fourth-year QB, and you don't see many rosters with four-year men holding clipboards. I think we (and the Falcons' coaching staff) have seen all there is to see with Shockley, and that by the end of this week, they'll name Wilson—an undrafted free agent rookie out of Alabama—as third-string QB.
