Atlanta’s offensive line has to play better for the team to get back to playing football in the postseason, it’s plain and simple. For two seasons now, Matt Ryan has been sacked more than 40-plus times. They’ve also finished at the bottom of the league in rushing offense in back-to-back seasons.
Morgan is a proven offensive line coach in the NFL and when the Falcons enjoyed their most successful season on offense in 2016, his leadership with his position group was an important piece of why the team went on to win the NFC Championship and earned a trip to Super Bowl LI.
“I think he’s the best coach for me to develop and maximize myself,” said Chris Lindstrom, the Falcons’ starting right guard. “He’s teaching the fundamentals necessary to play offensive line in the NFL and the urgency and toughness you need to play with as an offensive line. We know we need to do better as a unit and we’re being accountable for that. Coach Morgan is a great leader for our room, he’s the best coach for me to be the best I can be in my game.”
Chris Morgan might have the most responsibility of any coach on Dan Quinn's staff trying to get the Falcons offensive line playing better.
