It was one thing to make Freeman look like Sonic the Hedgehog, but our defense was so slow and unthreatening that Matt Ryan didn't even feel like he needed to slide, multiple times. Matt Ryan! That was the ultimate insult.

Nah, just tired of seeing the sloooow Paul Kruger lined up at the 9 technique and not even sniffing the QB. It's not working.

I think Kruger is sniffing the QB, but it's only because Matt Ryan has terrible body odor that carries yards away

Travaris Cadet, celebrating after a first down, while down three scores in the late 3rd/4th quarter, pretty much sums up this year and the recent Sean Payton, post-suspension era teams for me.

Just like last season when Payton ran onto the field celebrating as if we'd won the superbowl, it was actually week 17 and our 7th win of the season, completely embarrassing.

Nick Fairley doesn't get a pass as well. Dancing (after a meaningless sack) as the clock runs, down by 3+ scores.

I don't get it.

Re: Monday Night Football: Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints

Side note, has anyone watched Hard Knocks: LA Rams?

Their D line coach is one tough SOB, Former marine and screams at the D line if they don't win in one on one drills.

The D line is probably the best unit on the Rams team, whilst we have Bill Johnson who looks like he enjoys too much processed food and is so far up Paytons rear, he can smell the Vicodin.

This may be the worst stat I've ever read.

What is Bill Johnson doing at practice ? Our defensive interior line coach has done a poor job in preparing this team. Special teams have been below average as well.

Changes are needed and necessary if you want to compete at this level.

I'm completely lost for words....

Bill Johnson obviously has the D lineman fetching him big macs instead of running drills...

Wow. And this probably doesn't include the short passes to Freeman and Coleman.

This speaks to how bad our gap and contain assignments were last night. Very undisciplined play. When the pursuit was so bad that Matt Ryan didn't even have to slide on scrambles, that's when you know there is a serious problem. You cannot blame that on the injuries, you have to put it on the coaching.
