Quick notes from Carroll’s press conference … in order he addressed them:

–Line coach Tom Cable will miss most of the week after having back surgery Monday. It was an issue he’s had for some time that had flared up recently.

–Carroll cited the Falcons’ talent across the roster, their balance and discipline. They had the fewest penalties in the league, he said. They also excel in the kicking game and ball protection.

–On the injury front, Mike Robinson is set to practice full-go today, but Byron Maxwell is not expected to practice. Sidney Rice came out of the game without problem. Kam Chancellor is expected to be slow in practice early this week with a thigh bruise. Tackle Jarriel King (ankle) is going to practice this week. “This guy’s a terrific prospect,” Carroll said.

–He said he understands Aaron Curry’s frustration, and he expects to see him battle for playing time. KJ Wright is still expected to start, but Carroll said he considers it a competition. He touted Wright’s uncommon savvy and instincts for a rookie. He’s a quick study who has made the most of the chances he’s been given.

–He’s not just concerned about getting the ball more to Mike Williams, but also to Zach Miller and Leon Washington.

  1. Concerned, make that shit I priority. Man, what would it of looked like if Rice wasn’t in the game last week, yikes.

  2. a priority

  3. nighthawk2 says:

    How about also being concerned with getting the ball to Doug Baldwin and Justin Forsett?

  4. Dukeshire says:

    Yeah, I don’t get Forsett’s lack of touches either.

  5. SeahawkFan12 says:

    So the O-line injury curse is so insidious, it afflicted the O-Line Coach too! lol…

  6. EyeAmBaldman says:

    I agree nighthawk, I’d like to see Baldwin get a few more touches as well. With him, BMW, Rice and if Tate ever gets it figured out, the hawks will have a really good WR group. I’m also a fan of Durham and think he can an Ed McAffrey type.

  7. To me, I completely understand Forsett’s lack of touches.

    Every time he has run the ball (admittedly on few occasions) he has slowed before contact with the defender. He used to slip the first tackle so effectively, but now he’s rapped up travelling at 2mph.

    Whereas I see Washington at least hit the whole at full speed and really warrant more hand-off’s, I just haven’t seen that willingness from Forsett this year. Let’s hope he turns it around this week against a Falcons D that has not been defending the run effectively yet.
