Bryant isn’t the kickoff guy. The punter Matt Bosher normally is but Casey Redfern was that guy this game as a late injury replacement. He didn’t trust him.
The most baffling decision from #ATLvsAZ yesterday IMO was Dan Quinn NOT attempting an onside kick down 34-33 to the Cards. Maybe he felt Bryant wasn't in it but he played the "field position" game. Field position didn't matter if AZ got a first down, possession did. Clueless.
The officiating is atrocious. Too many Tickytack calls and too many missed calls even after replay.
The NFL is a money juggernaut, but I don't think they realize how strong the undercurrent is from the fans on the officiating. Powder keg. Will cause people to go elsewhere.

Seeing this makes me think the Falcons could turn this season around.
When you can get to the QB in the NFL, it matters. Big reason why the Packers are 4-1 is because of these guys they added to their roster this year. The Falcons need to get their pass rush going & quickly, Atlanta hasn’t had a sack in 3 games.
Preston and Za’Darius Smith now have a combined 12.5 sacks this season, the most amongst any duo in the NFL.
Matt Prater just crushed a field goal for the Detroit Lions. No one remembers this, but Bobby Petrino inexplicably cut Billy Cundiff for Prater at final cutdowns. He made it like two weeks because he could only complete 45+ yard kicks. He got cut for Morten Andersen.
