Wasn't Turner the third leading rusher in the NFL last year? And didn't you guys say before the o-line was bad last year? Wouldn't that be making yards out of nothing?

Re: Atlanta game

Preseason is preseason. No one is showing their hand whether it be offense or defense.

Re: Atlanta game

He was third in rushing yards. I said he either got stuck barely across the line of scrimmage or in the backfield way too much last year.

Well if the third leading rusher isn't good enough for the new falcons offense, how good does he have to be?

I'm not saying he totally sucks, but hey, he's 30 now, and we've got to move on from him soon. Notice that JacQuizz Rodgers had more carries than Turner had last night. JacQuizz was taken out for the night the same time that the rest of the starters were benched. If the training camp reports I'd been reading over the season are correct, Rodgers is going to start getting as much carries as he does.

Re: Atlanta game

So what do you think your record will be? Do you see the Falcons sweeping the Saints this year?

I am not even sure if Mike Nolan is a good D-Coordinator, I never seen his body of work like more well known D-Coordinators like a Rex Ryan, Gregg Williams, Steve Spags, or Wade Philips.

I consider Nolan a lesser coach of the defense than any of those guys. I remember when Nolan coached San Fran and they never had a defense or an offense for that matter. He went to Denver, not even sure what denvers defense was like last year, it didnt stand out to me none.

Now you got Nolan going to Atlanta, question I am asking is, what is on that roster defense wise that Nolan is really going to use and make a good defense out of? Answer is, I see pretty much nothing except maybe 2 players that are at least decent, I think one is a LB and the other a CB. I think the Falcons last D-Coordinator probably got about as much out of that unit as one could get, I cant imagine Mike Nolan getting anymore out of it, he may end up getting less since Lofton is gone.

I dunno about Koetter, is Koetter the OC they hired from JAX?

All I know is is that they trying to change up to a passing team now more than a running team, they need to know if Matt Ryan can succeed in such a system, when Ryan has been forced to air it out, it has not been a pretty sight.
