Falcons mindful of Bills WR speed

Posted by Chris Brown on December 1, 2013 – 3:36 pm

As big a challenge as Falcons head coach Mike Smith believes the combination of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson will be today, he’s also concerned with the way in which Buffalo uses their speed at receiver.

“The Bills are the only team that has two rushers with 500 yards or more at this point. We have to do a better job of fitting the run and not giving up way too many explosive plays and we have to get off the field on third down. And that’s going to be a challenge because of the speed at wide receiver,” said Smith.

“I think coach Marrone and his staff do a great job with the speed they have at the wide receiver position. It may be the fastest group as a whole as any in the NFL.”

Falcons coach doesn’t see edge in dome

Posted by Chris Brown on December 1, 2013 – 12:35 pm

Falcons head coach Mike Smith has got to think that his team has caught a break today being afforded the opportunity to play the Bills in a dome in Toronto at the Rogers Centre instead of at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park. He tried to downplay how the road schedule fell for his team this season.

“I don’t know if we catch an edge because they’re playing in the same conditions that we are and the field is still 100 yards long,” said Smith.

Smith did admit that the indoor conditions are preferable to his team.

“I think it’s something that we’re going to be used to,” he said. “We play nine games indoors every year, sometimes more. Playing up in Toronto is going to give us our 10th game indoors. And 72 degrees sounds a lot better than the weather you’re having up there right now.”
