TE Tony Gonzalez says Falcons should be 'the perfect offense'

Tony Gonzalez @TonyGonzalez88 posed a question Wednesday that will be on the mind of every defensive coach who has to face the Falcons this season: Whom are you going to stop?
"Obviously, we're led by Matt Ryan @M_Ryan02." Gonzalez said during an NFL Network interview. "With him pulling the trigger, with Roddy (White), Julio (Jones), myself, we're going to try and soften up that defense a lot where they got to stand back and play off us a little bit. That is going to make big holes for a guy like Steven Jackson @sj39, and we should hopefully go out there and be the perfect offense. That's what we strive to be is the perfect type of offense where it's pick your poison; who are you going to stop? And with Steven Jackson back there in the backfield, it just makes us that much tougher to defend."
Gonzalez also said that he is entering his last season "without question."

Fantasy Analysis:

The Falcons ranked eighth last season in total offense, and barring injury, that number should rise with Jackson, who is a much better fit for this offense than the forever-plodding Michael Turner. Arguably, the Falcons have a player at each offensive skill position who could be ranked in the top 12 at his position in fantasy. Read Matt De Lima's preview of the 2013 Falcons for much more on this perhaps perfect offense.
