Falcons Radio Network analyst Dave Archer joined The Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas on Monday to talk about the Falcons’ drubbing of the Dallas Cowboys.
First up for discussion was Adrian Clayborn’s historic six-sack game and why the Cowboys left backup tackle Chaz Green by himself. Archer said he was surprised Dallas didn’t stick with the chip-blocking on Clayborn that they did for a couple plays.
The Cowboys also had a tough time running the ball and the defense “made a commitment to stop the run,” offered Archer.
Offensively, Archer said he liked to see running back Tevin Coleman come in and step up. He knew he needed to and it “hurt him” to see his friend and teammate Devonta Freeman go down. Also, give Terron Ward credit. He was ready to go when he had his opportunity.
This was a total team win and a “step in the right direction.”
