FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons are favored to beat the Green Bay Packers by 2 ½ points.

One scout, who spoke with Bob McGinn of BobMcGinnFootball.com sees a close game, much like the 33-32 shootout the teams played last regular season on Oct 30, 2016.

“Green Bay will put up points and make it close. Atlanta’s secondary isn’t very good,” the scout told McGinn.

An AFC personnel man indicated the Packers’ ground game might be the key to victory.

“I honestly think the best way to (beat) Atlanta is establish the running game and go pound on them,” he said. “They’re undersized. That’s kind of how New England caught up in the Super Bowl. Wore them out.

“To beat them, you’ve got to withstand the storm because they’re going to come at you early. Most of the times when they lose games it’s in the fourth quarter. They get worn out.”

Scout on new Falcons right guard Wes Schweitzer:

“He has short arms (32 5/8 inches), large hands (10 ½) and a score of 31 on the Wonderlic intelligence test. Chicago DE Akiem Hicks beat him like a drum Sunday at Soldier Field.”

Scout on Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews:

“He’s not the dominating left tackle you thought he was going to be coming out of Texas A&M. He’s a good, solid, dependable left tackle.”

Scouts on Falcons right tackle Ryan Schraeder:

“They’ve groomed Schraeder nicely. Typical right tackle.”

Scout on Falcons defensive end/linebacker Vic Beasley:

“Just a run-and-chase guy. He’s not special. He’s not well-rounded. Just an undersized guy who can run and hit.”

Who the hell is this guy? Why is he hiding his identity? You can take anything he said and wipe your a$$ with it, if he won't sign his name to it.
