Filed under: FalconsOne of the big questions over at ajc.com is whether D.J. Shockley or Joey Harrington will be the Falcons No. 3 quarterback. The proper answer will be none of the above.

With Matt Ryan set as a the team’s quarterback for years to come, what the Falcons should be looking for is a quarterback who could eventually become a solid No. 2. And if he can develop into a potential trade chip down the road (a la Matt Schaub) that’’s all the better. Neither of the two candidates fit that role.
