'NFL Total Access' recap: Falcons have a weakness

Did you miss Thursday's "NFL Total Access" on NFL Network? Catch up with this recap:

Warren Sapp still is looking for the Atlanta Falcons pass rush to step up and he didn't see it Thursday night. He said they must be worried considering they have to face Drew Brees, Cam Newton and Josh Freeman twice each.

Sapp said he is looking for Ndamukong Suh to use more than just the bull rush this season. He knows Suh can do that but says it takes more than one move to be a dominant player in the NFL.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told Aditi Kinkhabwala after the Eagles' 14-9 victory over the Carolina Panthers that he has fallen in love with the game again. He said the last few years have been tough but he knows he is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

Sapp and Shaun O'Hara both believe Tom Brady should play Friday night vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. O'Hara said Tom Brady absolutely wants to be out there to lead his team.

O'Hara said the Chicago Bears offense needs to run through Matt Forte, and Jay Cutler needs to be the second option.

Sapp said it takes players about a year and a half before they can just play without thinking. He said players need two offseasons to become totally comfortable with the system.

Sapp does not believe Steven Jackson is still one of the best running backs in the NFL. He believes those spots are for Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch. O'Hara said Jackson is more than capable for what the Falcons needs and one of the most underappreciated players of this generation.

Be sure to tune into "NFL Total Access" Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
