We Got Outcoached

As bad as we were outplayed, we were even more badly outcoached. The Falcons (not clowns) had us perfectly scouted and made insightful adjustments at the half to win the game. They didn't force anything and they kept their lanes and assignments.

Some of you will say, "perfectly scouted?" Yes. They had Brees running around, no receiver was left to drift unattended, they read down and distance well for tendencies, and they picked on every weakness. You can't stop Brees all the time, but you pick your spots based on tendencies, the INT was an example of Brees' inexplicable tendency to gack on the road by forcing a ball where it had no business going (I had a bad feed and could tell what play was called and who/where it was intended). They took what our defense gave, which was 10 yards off every receiver, and annihilated the defense. The "we need more turnovers" theory is BS. A stop is a turnover, just like a fumble and INT, but much more likely if you play tackle football and not flag football.

Getting outscored 30-14 in the last 30:24 is inexcusable if you're really a better team. This is last season all over again.

This game had better be 10,000 volts to the gonads or we are witnessing the end of the Brees Era, because he has never had the tools or team he has now.

Re: We Got Outcoached

Well I think they overlooked the Falcons being healthy and their passing game.

I also think it is inexcusable to allow that much time left on the clock on that last drive.

So getting Out coached definitely has merit.

Re: We Got Outcoached

It was a bad game all the way around. It happens. We barely beat them last year without Roddy and Julio. Division games just go that way.
Yes the defense sucked but its game 1 and they have time to figure it out. If not much improves by week 4 then I will be ready for a long season. Until then I still think we are a Super Bowl team.
We better come out and pummel the Brown's.
Yes there were some poor coaching decisions but overall you cannot blame an offense for a loss when they put up over 30 points.

Re: We Got Outcoached

Outplayed, not outcoached.

Our pro-bowler laden D-line couldn't generate any pass rush against back-up tackles.

Re: We Got Outcoached

Your right about one thing, we were outcoached, but not by Atlanta. We outcoached ourselves. Why would you switch from a scheme that works to one that didn't work in 2012? Ole' Rob outsmarted himself.

Re: We Got Outcoached

this 15 -20 yard cushion was ridiculous

the linebackers were letting receivers go and Ryan was throwing right in the huge gap between them and the safeties

only one play did they vary things up and blitz and that was because Prob went down

Atlanta was jamming our receivers at the line

clock management with 1:30 remaining?
run out of bounds twice? Colston and Ingram

Re: We Got Outcoached

up 20-10 with our offense winning the time of position in 1st half you can't blame it on adjustment but you can on poor preparation

It takes longer to score a TD than a FG; can't let the clock run down to :02 and then hope you score the TD.

Re: We Got Outcoached

On no planet does Smith outcoach Payton. Coaching only goes so far when you miss 7 games worth of tackles in 1 game.
