If we don't press the WR at the line it's going to be a long day. Last year we played almost nothing but press coverage and it worked well.
Yup.

However, our D-line was a strength last year and right now they look weak.

Matt Ryan is notorious for dink an dunk, and we let them play their game all day long.
Headscratcher for sure.

Re: Its not THAT bad

And let's try and understand why our safeties were lining up deeper than usual.

You have Julio Jones who runs a 4.2, Hester who is really quick, Jaquizz Rodgers who is 4.2...

You play back and limit the big play, giving your defense more opportunities to make plays; it's called a bend but don't break defense.

It's not that bad huh... can't get much worse defensively.
Has anyone seen our defense? They are missing again.

Re: Its not THAT bad

Junior mouths off a lot on social media, yet Ingram is bashed here for answering media questions in a fired up optimistic tone. Anyone gonna tell Junior to just STFU and play?

We better blow out Cleveland or we will be in trouble. Carolina won today w/o Newton even though it was the Bucs they beat.

Newton wasn't the reason they won the past 3 seasons.

Sure glad we didn't allow the big play. we might have been able to hold them to 24-27 points................
This loss is on our DC
