While Koetter ran a different system the last few years in Tampa Bay, he should still be familiar with the key figures in Atlanta’s offense. He coached Matt Ryan and Julio Jones together for three years, from 2012-2014. During that time, the Falcons were more pass-oriented than they have been since coach Dan Quinn took over the next year]]> 5407399 Tue, 08 Jan 2019 18:00:02 EDT Falcons Wire

Evans was named to the Pro Bowl on Monday, replacing Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones, who will be unable to participate in the January 27 all-star game due to injury.

From former MVPs to All Pros, there are stars at practically every position for Atlanta’s offense. Julio Jones manages to excel at a higher level than the rest, even a top-five pro quarterback. As great and consistent as Matt Ryan usually is, Jones generally plays wide receiver better than Ryan plays quarterback and 2018 was no exception. One might even argue that Jones plays his position better than any other offensive player in the entire NFL plays theirs]]> 5407068 Tue, 08 Jan 2019 8:12:01 EDT Falcons Wire
