Due to the lock out there was no off season last year either... Professional athletes train year round regardless of coach or organized team activities.

And chase took all the snaps in the offseason so drew hasn't got close to over working his arm

We are lucky our receivers battle for the ball, especially that video you posted Oak, Moore put himself on the line for a well under thrown ball

I disagree on this one. Defense was over the top. If Drew goes any deeper it's (another) pick at worst, Lance getting smashed and dropping the pass at best.

I think a lot of his troubles stem from really one issue: the O-Line. His lack of protection leads to two things:
- his not being able to step through his throws either because he has defenders in his face or because he's rushing the throw because he's ABOUT to have defenders in his face.
- he's getting abused in the pocket. It's got to start messing with your head when you get hit that often.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to make excuses for Drew. I think he should be audibling (is that a word?) into runs more often since Carmichael is obviously oblivious. And he has to see the field better (this is the one that scares me. How does a QB stop being able to read defenses? Worse, how does he get back to being able to do it again?)

Finally, he has to stop trying to carry the whole load himself. I think it's admirable that he wants to be that kind of leader but he's making us predictable.

I really just want the season to end at this point. All I could think during the Falcons came was "Everyone seems to need to take a step back and clear their head." How often does Sproles drop that pass down the sideline that would have gone for, what, 45 yards? Or Moore drop a sure, easy TD? Or Graham get called for PI? Then Drew loses his s**t and tries to throw us back into the game by himself...5 picks.

We're just a mess psychologically and I'm worried someone's going to get hurt as a result.

Yes he did... Graham on the other hand, on curl routs does not come back for the ball.. He had a few batted away against Atl for that... Thats not just my observation, that came direct from the commentator booth also.

Footage and an offseason will do that to a player.

It will be interesting to see what kind of effort there is once we officially don't have a chance.

That's something coach Payton would be getting in Graham's face for Aswell, if SP was on the sideline graham would learn his lesson real quick

When you learn a curl route the first things they teach you are; quickly breakdown to not let the DB gain ground on you and always come back to the pass incase the DB has made a step on the ball while its in the air

Fundamentals have been killing us this year

Coach Payton's last instrcutions was to do your job. However the teams mindset is exactly what you just said.

This is what I have been trying to tell folks! Drew trying to be Superman with an O-Line that needs to do its main job and protect the QB, all of the dropped passes and Graham needing the ball to fall right into his hands instead of being the aggressive player he was last year. Maybe Graham is still hurt, but it is frustrating watching the D finally start coming around only to watch the Offense unravel.
