Its Time For Jamaal Anderson To Prove His Worth To The Falcons

... former first round pick out of Arkansas. To those who don't know the name, it's Jamaal Anderson, and he was supposed to be the big time defensive end that the Falcons needed to get that pass-rush moving in the right direction.

To date, he has yet to mature into the guy that the Falcons brass thought he would and many fans feel that we have already given up on JA98.

When you look at what he has done in the last two years, he simply has not been impressive. In two years as the Falcons starting defensive end, his stat line reads 57 tackles, two sacks, and six pass deflections.

By contrast, LaMarr Woodley, the second round pick of the Steelers in that same draft has 74 tackles, 15.5. sacks, two forced fumbles, and an interception. He has played in three less games than Anderson and didn't become a starter until his second year in the league.
