Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

My biggest takeaway from the first half of the Falcons-Dolphins preseason game is that the Falcons' offensive line still has a lot of work to do. The line gave up too much pressure and allowed starting QB Matt Ryan to be sacked three times in four drives. Center Joe Hawley was not in the game as the Falcons let Mike Person get first team work. Hawley was missed. And promising left guard James Stone took a significant step back. Give the Dolphins and Ndamukong Suh credit for being dominant up front.
