Imagine a home game for the Atlanta Falcons against the New Orleans Saints with no spectators or a silent Super Bowl in an empty stadium.

These hypotheses could become a reality in the upcoming 2020 NFL season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At least the number of participants will be limited. Atlanta released a plan last week that 10,000 to 20,000 masked people would be housed in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on match days.

Is a third of the event capacity the best scenario for the Falcons and other NFL teams? Or should they just take on this year’s curiosities and get by with zero personal fans?

Brady Pfister and Chris Vinel discuss. They throw up some unique ways to combat the lack of attendance.


Who has the potential to become the breakout star of this year’s Falcons? The most common choice is Hayden Hurst, and Brady talks about it, but Chris names two sometimes forgotten candidates.

Last week, the NFL canceled all preseason games and added to their list of COVID-19 precautions. What does this mean for the league, players and fans? Note: Not much for Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

Finally, Raheem Mostert of the San Francisco 49ers requested a trade earlier this month. Although Mostert had a “freedom meeting” with his organization last week, Bleacher Report listed the most important potential landing spots for him. The hawks ranked number one. Should they chase him?

You can find all that and more in this week’s episode of the Dirty Birds Podcast. Contact Brady and Chris at [email protected].
