That worked real well didn't it... oh wait...

You sure as hell don't let fast WR get clean breaks off the line. Bump and run is how you beat guys like Jones. Should have played press-man with a single high safety and a robber safety underneath. That's what worked last year...

Nothing west-coast about the falcons... your joking right?

They are known for the dink and dunk passing game...

Re: Its not THAT bad

Here's how you deal with Julio: have your corners jam the sh*t out of him at the line and disrupt his routes/timing so your pass rush can get there. Remember what we did to Dez Bryant when we played the cowboys last year? We had a safety and a corner jam him and he couldn't get off the line. Had today's plan neutralized either Julio or Roddy White, we might have won but we switched to that scheme at the end of the first half and that's when we started giving up huge plays.

Beyond that I have to question some of the schemes. Having your safeties play 40 yds off against a west-coast offense??? Additionally the CBs were playing 10-15 yds off most of the game. 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.
I, for one, thought Atlanta's offensive line looked mightily improved.
Jake Matthews is a stud at left tackle, as is Jon Asamoah at guard. Mike Tice as an offensive line coach also seems to be a good hire for them.

I agree that our pass rush this game was lacking, but I also think Atlanta isn't the same team they were last year.

Re: Its not THAT bad

I honestly think Atlanta will fall by the end of the season. Their line was ok, but Ryan was flushed out quite a bit, we just couldn't bring him down. Their defense looked awful too. It wasn't like they dominated this game, I could see them hitting a wall against any team with a half decent pass rush while they get carved up defensively.

Re: Its not THAT bad


Premature Contract. Don't like keep aging defensive veterans paying them so that they're locked in (see LBs Lofton, Hawthorne)...

He got the majority of snaps because of his new contract; Tyrunn Walker outplayed Galette on one play...

We needed more of Walker's physical style of play and he was the only one who gave it in the front seven...

Galette is going to be Will Smith 2.0; it doesn't matter how much you pay, a turd is still a turd...

Galette is a one-trick pony, at best, who got beat physically by a back up linemen...

Ryan should have rotated more of the front seven to keep 'em fresh and to geaux with the hot hand(s)...

Re: Its not THAT bad

This team should win this division; but that defensive effort will get them ten wins at best...

Payton must run the ball more than pass to instill a physical persona for this team in a physical game...

Running the ball will also limited the exposure of this defense until they can figure things out...

Parcells won with those Giants teams not only because he had Lawrence Taylor, but because he understood at the end of the day you can beat a talented offense (49ers) with physical, punishing football...
