The Falcons are not very popular in the 2022 season.

In the end, the team changed the quarterback Matt Ryan and lost some important offensive weapons this offseason, such as receiver Russell Gage, due to leeway and receiver. Calvin Ridley to a one-year suspension of sports betting.

But one player left in the 2021 roster recently spoke positively about Atlanta’s chances.

“I feel we are a playoff team,” recipient Olamide Zacchaeus said via D. Orlando Ledbetter of Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We just [have] put it all together. Really fast start at the beginning of the season and not fall into the pit. I just feel like as a team we can shock a lot of people.”

In a way, the Falcons did it last year. Atlanta finished 7–10 in head coach Arthur Smith’s first season. But the team could hardly compete with the top echelon teams, with victories over giants, jets, dolphins, saints, jaguars, panthers and lions.

Regardless of the schedule, this year will most likely not be easier with Marcus Mariota or Desmond Ridder in quarterback.

Zacchaeus will earn $2.4 million in 2022 after signing with restricted free agents during the off-season. Basically, he’s the team’s best returning receiver, having caught 31 passes for 406 yards with three touchdowns in 2021.
