NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

With Sedrick Ellis out we saw some serious impact as the Falcons racked up some yards.

Also, anyone notice that Charles Grant was moving in slow motion again? He just wasn't a factor. He's back to his on again, off again status.

I know Gregg Williams is pissed. They have to tighten up.

Re: NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

i noticed grant getting sucked inside a lot which resulted in turner bouncing it outside and getting big yardage......i understand the aggressiveness but im not a fan of breaking containment and responsibility to be aggressive

will smith looked like he was possessed tonight but since we couldnt get any push up the middle, we struggled to get pressure on matt ryan.....they picked up our blitzes nearly every time......we actually got more pressure on him when we only rushed 3 or 4 because our coverage was much better and ryan didnt know where the pressure(which was actually non-existant) was coming from......he got more flustered in the pocket when we didnt blitz

TAKE NOTES for next time we play the falcons

Canton... exactly. You totally got my point.

We actually did better with fewer down linemen and coverage sacks.

But the run... I have to admit Gregg Williams mixed it up and switch and shifted the line and that at least had some affect.

And yes, exactly, Will Smith looked like he wasn't trying or I don't know what. Maybe it was that all black uni and the socks, he looked like he was just rolling around and barely jogging through plays.

Re: NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

Ellis isn't gettng alot of stats but he clearly has been a force in the middle. Fujita is also missed. Plus, Turner is one of the elite RB's in the league. WHO DAT!

Re: NO Sedrick Ellis = MAJOR run yards

From what I saw alot of his yards cames from taking it outside when the middle was clogged. I think our ends for those plays didn't hold the edges.

Grant looked slower tonight but will was getting after it on pass rush. Run Contain well, I'll have to watch the game again on replay and see if i'm wrong.

Shanle played like the old Shanle and Dunbar is a backup for a reason as well.

Michael Turner was running like a man possessed, a large Mike Bell. He wasn't going down with arm tackles last night. We will miss Ellis. How long is he out??
