Give the defense credit
 
Holding the falcons to 23 points when we turned it over 5 times is nothing short of spectacular

They seem to start slow but once they settle down and play fundamentals you can see the progression
Look at the defense from the start of the season to now, there is an obvious improvement
There are still some things to iron out, but can't really complain because I'm seeing improvement

Couple of opportunities for picks were missed vs falcons but hardly anything fell our way in the game

Cam Jordan is a great player, love the way he slammed Ryan into the ground on the sack then he smacked Michael turner when he tried to turn the corner

If our D can continue to improve, next season could be a good year for them (with additions of some players) plus we get Payton back and hopefully that will stop the transformation of mr brees and dr INT

Key players who I think we would have been counting on, will be back next season. Chamberlain, romeus, I also expect us to have a good defensive draft. And that should give us a great shot to retake this division.

They get more than credit:

Allowed only

15 - 1st downs
LESS THAN 300 TOTAL YARDS
ONLY 2 TD's
26 mins TOP
NO Atl receiver had over 60 yards

You can bet your AZZ that teams will be studying our defense on tape from this game to prepare for Atlanta.

Defense played well. Still have a few brainfarts in coverage though but overall best game of the year for them.

They played fairly well, but the culprits on defense that make good pitiful plays are still here.

I do, there was that nice stretch where ATL couldn't buy a first down, and the rest of the stats posted by the Oak ... you gotta' sift through the rubble and look for the bright spots in a loss like this, :mrgreen:.

The most impressive stat to me, especially after the 9ers game, is we did not allow them a 3rd down completion until the 4th qtr!! That is amazing. This D is really starting to come around. Next year does not look so bleak defensively.

Next year doesn't look bleak on either side of the ball, coaching, anything.

Hicks is still inconsistant but when he flashes it is amazing. Him and Jordan will be the key stones in building a dominant front 4.

He has still been more active then sedrick Ellis has in the last 5 years in terms of making plays

Jordan was inconsistent last year and then he's had a pretty good year this year, 7 sacks for a guy that was brought in primarily to stop the run is very good, not to mention he is very good against the run also

Agreed that we will build the D around those two, and also lofton I believe
