According to your coach, MLB and linebackers play a substantial role. A "base" linebacker plays 45% of snaps.

He is a core special teams player, Mike Smith said. Hes our base linebacker. Hes going to have to play some special teams throughout the season. When you are a base player you play about 45 percent of the snaps.

Because Brian Van-Gorder is a jack azz.

I don't know; Lofton has been pretty solid against the pass in both our games. Maybe the Falcons weren't using him right...

That maybe right but he also slimmed down, wish he would have did that while he was here.

But didn't you just post that run defense was the strength of the falcon team? Wouldn't that be VanGorder's doing?

Yes but in a passing league what good does it do you to have a great run D but a garbage pass D, and than he wasnt creative enough to draw up any blitz packages that would work.

We got cut up by QBs like TJ Yates, Jake Locker and Travaris Jackson etc.

Re: Atlanta game

Too much hooplah about nothing.

I did watch some of the Atl-Bal game as I had the NFLN live look-in on the PiP. Yep, Jones a bunch of yards. The couple of high arches Matt Ryan threw really deep (that's about 30-40 yds at most for him), I kept wondering where's Ed Reed to intercept that crap? Oh, yeah, on the bench.

The Falcons also got out firing, throwing the ball, no huddle, the works. Why? Because they had to. The last memory of the Falcons O is, well, an O, as in zero points scored in a playoff game in a 3-and-out fest in NY, and there are plenty of season tickets still not sold. So they have to come out and show something in front of the home crowd, and obviously they have to feature the guy who they spent 2-3 picks for. There is no way they were going to come out and have the starters just run the ball a couple of drives and be contempt with no injuries.

The Ravens, on the other hand, started the passing the ball more than running it, which is not characteristic of the Ravens.

It is a completely different situation when we looked at the Saints O in the HOF game, when we saw the Saints offense and we recognized an old friend.

And it is not like Clowns torched the Ravens every time... yes, that first drive was a TD, then followed by a 3-and-out, then followed by an interception in the Red Zone after a good punt return to Baltimore's 15.

And Mike Nolan is gonna prevent you from getting cut up by Brees? Drew has lit Mike Nolans defenses up since '06...

Drew is elite he's going to light up everyones defense but atleast this time around it will be far more complicated and we definetly wont be getting lit up by those scrub QBs that I named in my last post.
