Falcons' offense gives 'most inconsistent' effort

Posted: Updated:
FLOWERY BRANCH, GA (AP) -

The Falcons' offense may have hit a new low point in the latest loss of a disappointing season.

Atlanta hoped running back Steven Jackson's return from a hamstring injury would provide a boost. Jackson had so little running room in Sunday's 27-13 loss at Arizona that coach Mike Smith says he couldn't evaluate the running back.

The Falcons have lost four of their last five, beating only winless Tampa Bay in that span.

Smith says interceptions, sacks, poor blocking and penalties made for the season's "most inconsistent" effort.

The coach says there has been "absolutely no consideration" of making a deal before Tuesday's trade deadline. There has been speculation tight end Tony Gonzalez might be traded back to Kansas City, where he began his career.
