Bair Mail: On the assessment of Desmond Ridder, Cordarrelle Patterson …

Desmond Ridder’s NFL debut is now on record. The third-round pick made his debut Sunday in New Orleans, as the Saints pulled out a 21-18 victory over the Falcons.

The NFC South continues to lose, so the Falcons are still technically in it, but we’re not focused on that right now. The division doesn’t matter until the Falcons improve and start winning these close games. They are improving in some areas, while still struggling in the passing game.

That should be fixed in the short and long term. While the Falcons haven’t played well, there is reason for hope in the young foundation. Let’s talk about that, Ridder’s performance and Cordarrelle Patterson’s production in this Monday’s Bair Mail.

I felt vindicated last week after Ridder was named the starter, but I was a facetious person. Our expectations of him should be lowered now. Ridder didn’t play badly, but he didn’t play well either. His orders for efficiency, prudence, & The desire to read correctly will please his friends in time. I felt that Coach Smith tried to be too cute with the play-calling & it hurt the team early.

Bair: I don’t think the play calling is relevant here, Chris. Both Desmond Ridder and Arthur Smith said the youngster has improved from the start, pushing for big shots instead of taking what’s available.

Now to your main point, which is a good one. We have to rate Ridder on a different scale. He is not the savior of this season. He doesn’t want to come right in and be perfect. This is a third round to be imposed on New Orleans and then Baltimore, a little trial by fire, as my friend Tori put it. You should take all of this into account in your assessment. You have to take into account the fact that Kyle Pitts is not here. You have to take into account his inexperience and the fact that he is learning how to play the position at this level by doing it.

You simply cannot make him score in the box. You have to look at the tape and his play and look for signs of improvement or regression. As Smith said in his Monday press conference, you don’t want him to make the same mistake twice. Ridder sounds like a good self-appraisal. That will help you in this process as well.

I saw the game live and watched most of the offensive plays. He made rookie mistakes, really a bunch of them. But he ran the offense well and showed physical skill. Now he has to make the right decisions after giving the ball to the right man at the right time. We have one game to look at, and that’s a baseline. Let’s see if he can improve from here.

Another close loss with another chance to win/tie the game lost due to turnovers. But let me say this, this team has a foundation. It really stood out to me. This coaching staff has produced quality players. The defense needs some help and the passing game needs to improve as you mentioned Bair. I know the season isn’t over yet, but I’m looking to the future, with small pieces like London, Allgeier, Grant, Hawkins, Pitts, etc., what is the biggest flaw on the team that they can address besides the potential QB if Ridder did not happen. Don’t you want to be the future? And how do you see them doing considering how much money they have to spend this season?

Bair: Lots of great points here, which is why I ran the whole question. I, too, think there is an expanding young core that should encourage Falcons fans about the team’s future. There are many people who are automatic locks to become contributors.

One area where I think the Falcons should go big, either in the draft or free agency (or both): cornerbacks and the defensive line. You can never have enough good guys, and the Falcons need more. That could be a place to spend the big bucks for a quick top end and get a true nose tackle and draft another line of defense. The interior fenders are in good shape. Adding tight ends and inside linebackers Grady Jarrett and TaQuon Graham could help that defense quickly. As Casey Hayward is back, as loyal reader Scott Carasik pointed out, that will get the upper hand.

Hi! I know you’re getting QB questions, so it’s a cp question, we used him TE WR RB and even FS, this year we’re just using him as a running back. What’s up?

Beer: That’s a good question, Isaac, that sent me down a PFF rabbit hole that took me a while to get out of. Yes. I look closely at the detailed rushing numbers, how often he plays each position. He’s getting in line more than you’d think, (and more than I thought), but less so. Early on he was the team’s form running back and had to fill that role in a three-down capacity with Tyler Allgeier unavailable and Damien Williams injured.

Then he went on IR, and since he’s been back, he’s been playing about a quarter of his positions in the outfield or in the slot. He is not as active as he used to be and seems to be splitting time with Allgeier. I think Allgeier having Patterson in the backfield at different spots is an effective way to go.

Regardless of the number of rushes, his access to statistics has decreased, which is what you feel. He had a career-high 548 receiving yards in 2021, on 52 catches. He only had 12 catches for 65 yards this season. That’s impressive, but he’s close to setting a career high in rushing yards, with more yards in 10 games than he had in 16 games last season. So, there is some give and take.
