Will The Bucs Stop Douglas, Cone And Davis?October 17th, 2013
Minus Julio Jones, Roddy White and Steven Jackson, the 1-4 Falcons are a beatable bunch on Sunday. Heck, former Bucs QB Shaun King even predicted a Bucs win. (Joe will have more on that later.)
Harry Douglas, Kevin Cone and Drew Davis are the Falcons’ top available receivers.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution penned a little story about these guys and how the Falcons were studying a trade for Hakeem Nicks this week.
The trio has no touchdowns and 17 catches this season, 16 by Douglas, who’s actually been with the Falcons for five years and has caught 138 balls. However, 29-year-old Douglas should be no match for Darrelle Revis.
In theory, that leaves Tony Gonzalez has the Falcons’ top threat. Joe would love to see Mark Barron have a game Sunday worthy of the 7th overall pick. Barron, in part, was drafted to lockdown elite tight ends.
