The Atlanta Falcons missed the playoffs last year after making the playoffs in 2008.
If the Falcons are going to get back to it in 2010 the Falcons need address their defense further.
The obvious main reason is that they are in a division with the Superbowl Champions New Orleans Saints.
In addition to the Saints fellow division rival Carolina Panthers is an excellent running game and could see their passing attack improve behind quarterback Matt Moore and the drafting of a wide receiver.
The injury to defensive tackle Peria Jerry exposed how thin they are at defensive tackle.
In the end as the saying goes offense wins games, but defense wins championships.
