Recapping Falcons position battles with ESPN’s Michael Rothstein

The 17th episode of SportsTalkATL’s Falcons podcast Talkin’ Birdy is here! Matt Karoly, Jake Gordon, and Alex Lord had a conversation with ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, who joined NFL Nation in 2013 after two seasons covering the University of Michigan football and basketball teams. After covering the Detroit Lions for eight seasons, he’s now the Falcons NFL Nation reporter and gave us extensive insight into the differences between Detroit’s recent failures to establish a sustainable winning culture and what Atlanta might have in Arthur Smith.

Jake, Matt, and I asked Mike about whether he believes the battle for the left guard is over; he also gives his prediction of who the Falcons keep along the offensive front and who will eventually win the starting job. Jake, SportsTalkATL’s quarterback guru, picked Mike’s brain about the Josh Rosen and backup battle. We finished up with our final 53-man roster projection, which were all different and should set up an intriguing episode next week when the hosts recap the official 53-man roster!
