  1. Julio has never had the best hands as a receiver. Guess he was bored on that play and lost focus.
  2. Speaking of Cover 3, why on earth would you primarily run that defensive scheme against a QB who practices against it weekly??? Don't you think he has learned where the holes/vulnerabilities are in that defense??? Falcons have some cerebrally challenged coaches
  3. DQ just needs Ryan and Schaub to come up with the game plans and play calling. Koetter ain't gonna Kut it!!! I tried being optimistic last year, but he's too stuck in the Air Coryell offense--which is vastly outdated.
  4. Working out is good and all, BUT those weights don't block or punch back. Takk needs to add more moves to his pass rushing repertoire. Stop being a one trick (bull rush) pass rusher.
  5. Barnwell obviously pulled these rankings outta his rear end!!!
  6. Here’s what you need to know about those two: 1. McDaniel is the star. Remember all those new run plays and wrinkles the 49ers used for the first time in 2019? Those probably came from McDaniel. Shanahan and his father are zone-blocking purists. McDaniel is a run-game genius who has mastered every blocking scheme. Most teams would love to have him. Just not the Falcons apparently Man stop crying over spilled Milk...almost four years later. Just be happy you have Koetter at the helm. His offense is even more creative than Shanny's ever could be. 🤩
  7. This ^ is the real question. We'll need to wait and see how they come out the gates.
  8. DQ better get Koetter and his weak game plans in check early if he wants to go all the way this year. Falcons were struggling to score TDs once they hit the opponents 30 yard line and settle for FGs. Just like when Koetter was here before under Smitty. This is my main concern with this team--KOETTER!!!
  9. The current offensive players are designed for YAC (quick slants and other plays to get the ball in the receiver's hands quickly). Not dummy old, stale, archaic offensive play calling Koetter. He does just the opposite of a WCO play caller and not what the Falcons need.
  10. Even when Koetter was with the Falcons before, he was terrible at making adjustments during the game. Once his 15 scripted plays were over the team's offense was done. Back to being predictable, struggling to score in the red zone (too many field goals) and Ryan's interceptions go up because Koetter struggles to scheme guys open (curl routes that allow the DBs to stick like glue to the WR).
  11. Oluokon is a replica of Stephen Nicholas on the field...tackles okay but struggles in coverage. Ironically he wears the same number Nicholas did.
  12. Glad I'm not the only one to notice he doesn't use his hands or attacks it in the air consistently.
  13. I'd say you're pretty spot on with your observation/assessment. The coaches seemed to have finally made an honest assessment of some and let them go. There are a few more that can leave IMO as well. Guess you can't get rid of them all in one season.
  14. DQ is a motivator. Still hasn't grown that much in game management and sticking to a scheme. He experimented defensively and got away from the zone running and west coast style offense (best suited to the current players). He needs to stick to his vision of aggressive offense and defense; and hold coaches and players accountable when they don't live up to his standards.
  15. Tell me one DE taken in the 7th who's dominated?
  16. So many GMs, so little experience on an actual NFL team. How about just wait and see what the guy does on the field. It's a trade for a 7th round pick. Could we find a DE in the 7th with his potential?
  17. They actually gave a 7th round for him per 92.9
  18. He has speed and the potential to get at least two to three sacks per year. Everyone can't be a double digit sack artist
  19. What about playing the ball? Whitt preaches taking the ball off the receiver
  20. Apparently Whitt, Charles Woodson, CB Terrell and safety Hawkins had a virtual meeting
