What are the biggest concerns for the Falcons offense heading into 2024?

NFL: SEP 17 Packers at Falcons

It’s always ultra-quiet in the football world this time of year, but we are close to an explosion. In a few weeks, NFL training camp will begin, which will soon be followed by the preseason, and before you know it, the Falcons will be taking the field at Mercedes Benz Stadium for Week 1 against Arthur Smith and the Steelers.

The weeks leading up to the season aren’t typically the most exciting time of the year for football fans, but that won’t be the case this year for the Falcons. They have a number of storylines that will be covered by the national media. None bigger than the dynamic between Kirk Cousins and Michael Penix Jr.

The Falcons infamously handed Cousins a four-year, $150 million contract with $100 million guaranteed this offseason before turning around a few weeks later and drafting Michael Penix Jr. with the 8th overall pick. It was an unprecedented series of events that understandably perturbed the veteran Cousins, who thought he was coming to Atlanta to compete for a Super Bowl.

That will be one of the hottest topics of the National Football League when training camp kicks off, but it’s one of a plethora of storylines worth following in Atlanta. Raheem Morris is getting his second crack at being a head coach after the Falcons hired him this offseason. The defense is littered with concerns, along with a new defensive coordinator, and everybody is excited about how the offense will look under new offensive coordinator Zac Robinson, who followed Raheem Morris from Los Angeles and previously coached under arguably the brightest offensive mind in the game in Sean McVay.

On the latest episode of SportsTalkATL, Alex Lord and I break down the biggest concerns for the Falcons offense heading into the 2024 campaign.
