Zoneblitz.com is going team by team reviewing 2012 and getting a sneak peek into 2013 by doing Q&A's with different team blogs around the internet. We had the opportunity to answer some Falcons questions for them.
Here is one of the questions from the Q&A:
Zoneblitz: What do you think of the release of Michael Turner and the signing of Steven Jackson?
Grits Blitz: Michael Turner was a great acquisition by the Falcons and he did a great job while he was here but over the last couple of years he had clearly taken a step back. Steven Jackson is an instant upgrade over Michael Turner and he will add another dimension to the Falcons offense. Jackson has put up some nice stats over the last few years playing for a team that quite frankly wasn’t any good. Being on a team with multiple offensive weapons will do nothing but help him. He might not put up the same stats but his impact will be more meaningful. It will be very interesting to see how he is used in Dirk Koetter’s system as SJax has shown the ability to excel in the pass game (90 receptions in 2006). Jackson provides the team with a clear upgrade in talent and in what he allows the team to do when he’s in the game. With St Louis, teams could look at stopping Jackson as their main focus but with the Falcons they also have to deal with Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. You can’t cover everybody.
