  Falcons | Felt Lousaka Polite was not a dominant lead blocker    Wed Nov 7, 02:36 PM

The Atlanta Falcons made a change at fullback Wednesday, Nov. 7, because they felt that FB Lousaka Polite was not a dominant blocker in front of RB Michael Turner. Polite dealt with a hamstring issue, but his blocking was not what the Falcons were hoping for when he returned. The Falcons now turn to FB Mike Cox in hopes that he can be a dominant lead blocker.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are limiting Turner's carries compared to last year, but he's still the closer for them late in games.
