Memo to Matt Ryan: Never Pass to Joe Hawley Again

With Lousaka Polite injured, running back Jason Snelling and backup center Joe Hawley have been taking snaps at fullback.

It’s okay to throw Hawley in the fullback spot for extra beef in a heavy package.

It is, however, NOT okay to actually pass to Hawley. On his first target, the backup center hit the ball in the air as if he were digging a volleyball. The Falcons were fortunate the ball wasn’t intercepted.

To make matters worse, Ryan targeted Hawley again later in the game. This time, the ball just went through Hawley’s hands.

There are ALWAYS better receiving options than a center. Always.

Ryan: Hawley should never be a viable checkdown option, ever. Dirk Koetter: rip that play out of your playbook.
