    Wardaddy has to maintain edge.  Love his effort ...its stands out when everyone else is playing grab *** but maintain the edge Takk! 
    I'm a little concerned about Keanu.  Looked slow .  so did Ricardo and so does Free. 
    Hoop looked good , his hands have improved but man he's a fast as molasses.
    Ito needs more playtime and for goodness sake activate Hill and Quadree this week.
    Overall it just feels like All hat , no cattle. 
    NEW RULE: if you were on the team during the Superbowl loss you CANNOT ask for a pay raise until we win a superbowl.

    Great post. We are all venting today.
    THE GOOD
    Ito Smith is the real deal. Hits the hole like a rocket and is a slippery thing to tackle. Really surprised we did not slip him out into the passing game more on wheel routes.
    Deion Jones making tackles all over and running people down.
    Grady with the quick penetration, deadly 1st step.
    Keanu reminding the WRs that he is the Sheriff back there. Love that guy, he is a warlord.
    Gage gives EVERYTHING on every play. really impressive dude.
    Sanu does everything well. Need to feed him the ball.
    Hooper is the man. He is a difference maker and rolls the chains, enough of this 5 yard cutout, get him up the seam!!! Feature him like the Pats did with Gronk.
    MVPS: Smith, Jones, Neal, Grady, Tak, Hooper
    THE BAD
    Freeman has to walk the talk. They all do but Free has something to prove. Too many hungry guys in line to be jitterbugging for 2-3 yards per carry.
    MR2 making really bad throws. Both INTs were very bad and the ball he threw 4' over Gage's head (out of bounds) got him hurt. He picked up his play in the 2nd half but it was too little too late. He had Hooper wide open when the threw the pick to Stocker....waited too long.
    JJ11 What the heck man? What was with the effort? Lazy routes, dropped passes.....looked OLD and RUSTY out there...just a bad look. Needed to get him off the field and throw to somebody that is hungry.
    Pass Rush - this is what we've been told is the most improved part of the defense? Really? WTF?
    LVPS: MR2, Matthews, Vic, Oliver, Freeman
    THE UGLY
    The entire Oline - embarrassing. just got whipped, looked AWFUL. This is a mess and it just got worse. what have they been doing?
    The entire RUN DEFENSE - Can ANYBODY cover a RB? Looked like a whole team of Duke Rileys taking bad angles, getting caught in the wash, whiffing on tackles, stopping play..have we regressed?
    The Special Teams - like you said, BLOCK THEM! This was oogly to watch.
    The Coaching - Going for 2???? WHY??? Where is the screen game? Where are the shots upfield?
     
    depressed and angry

    I dont know exactly what to blame for that absolute pathetic showing yesterday, but Dan Quinn as the head coach is soley and completely to blame. He is the head coach. Quinn is to blame for SB 51 debacle. Quinn is to blame for Sark and those wasted two years. Quinn is to blame for ket his defense being gashed in the running game, all of which were the same runs outside, no matter which rb was doing the gashing. Quinn is to blame for a offensive gameplan that played right into the vikes hands(Where were the screens and other pass rush beaters?)( Why was Matt early on standing in the pockebreingt trying to throw downfield until it was too late and they started throwing short passes to Hoop.
     
     
     
    Here’sa breakdown of the stupid bonehead plays and how I saw them. Please lemme know if yall agree or not.
     
    1.Very first play. 1st and 10. Matt drops back for a long developing play action pass and is killed from the blind side by a free rusher Matthews left untouched. Zimmer is known for blitzing. Their dline wet knew were all studs. And, doesn’t play action work better after you run the ball some?
     
    How does Matthews, a veteran and pro bowler, not block a blitzer lined up right in front of him? It was sa boneheaded play call, a boneheaded play by Matthews who matter the protec23tion called should’ve blocked dude.
     
    Either the falcons coaching staff is that incompetant, someone in the coaching box was proving a point, or someone in the coaching staff was sabotaging someone else.
     
    That play set the tone and opened the flood gates of *** beat.
     
    2nd down we get 4 yards on an honest to god running play, like we did most every time we ran straight ahead and wasnt trying to toss sweep or double reverse. Run that play on 1st down and it’s 2 and 6 vs 2nd and f4cked.
     
    Then comes the blocked punt, for the second time instead of blcoking the man in front of them, they let him free and bad happens.
    On that play, TE #87 Graham was lined up beside the long snapper, at the snap he lunged left leaving his man a free run to block the punt. Zimmers staff had saw this on tape before and exploited it. Dont know who this is on, surely to God he wasnt coached to do this. High school teams dont screw up punt protection this bad.
    th
    Anyway, the first disaster putting the defense in a bad spot.
    Vikes 1st and 10, they bust the first of a long line of outside zone plays that gashed the falcons all night. It wasnt the vikes beating the falcons on these plays, the falcons were clueless defending these all night. No matter the rb, no matter what, the falcons didn’t contain, they werent gap sound, they bunched up way too close in pursuit to the edge.
     
    This play got called back, but still, this is on Quinn. He has taken over the defense that has already been under his tutelage 5 seasons, and they epically failed defending the outside run….all night long.
     
    Next play, 1 and 20, Cook caught a pass in the flat with Beasley defending. IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM SHOULD BEASLEY BE COVERING DALVIN COOK IN THE FLAT. At least he tackled him before he scored.
     
    Then Oliver, who was one on one with Theilen all night, got abused and scored on. Theilen clearly pushed off, but this was the obvious bad match up in the passing game and would’ve been there all night. Why Quinn didn ‘t scheme some kinda man/zone to counter this bad matchup is beyond me. Even if Oliver wasnt young, his size and skill set does not match up well with Theilen. Oliver should’ve at least been physical at the LOS with Theilen.
     
    OK...Vikes up 7-0. We still in the game.
     
    Ensuing kick, Barner, who otherwise had a decent night returning, made a boneheaded play bringing the ball out of the end zone and getting tackled 10 yards shy of the 25. Boneheaded against the vikes, but not the worst.
     
    Falcons 1st and 10 at their own 15. Ryan makes the first of two completely boneheaded INT’s that went on and killed the falcons completely. Ryan had no business throwing to Julio being he was bracketed. “He was trying to make a play” ********, it was 1st down, not 3rd. Again, instead of a normal straight ahead run that got us 4-5 yards a play all night, we did what we had no business doing throwing the ball there. Were we coaching for the vikes?
     
    Vikes get the ball, and after another complete fail at defending the outside zone, blowing contain, not maintaining gap, etc….Cook scores. 14-0.
     
    Next drive...instead of running the ball straight ahead, which was working, not dominating, but wo
    rking, Koetter calls not one but two toss sweeps, which got blowed up, and a double reverse.
     
    WOW.
     
    On a second and 19, Julio put a slick double move on his defender, and even though the defender ran into and got run over by Julio(Which was clearly illegal contact btw and right infront of the ref)leaving him wide open for a TD, Ryan over threw him by 5 yards, missing a sure TD that would’ve made it a one score game.
     
    ON 3rd and 19, Gage was open down the sideline for a 1st down and Ryan over threw him, almost getting Gage killed after he made an outstanding catch. For the second time in a row, Ryan missed a wide open throw that either scores a td or extends the drive in two score game.
     
    Maybe Ryan was shell shocked from getting blowed up that first play. Cousins got blowed up worse and made plays. Ryan didnt. Make of that what you will.
     
    Next vikes drive, Beasely has a clean shot from Cousins blind side, but for some ungodly reason, lets up and then dont wrap up, missing a drive killing sack.
     
    From then on, yall know what happened. The offense finally started clicking somewhat. Folks are debating the 2 point tries which are irrelevant at that point.
     
    All this being said, what is relevant is this. At this point in Quinns tenure here, this is unexcusable.
    “They had a new scheme and coordinator.”
     
    So did we. And the giants. The cowboys. And several other teams that didnt epically fail like we did.
     
    The vikes beat us running for 150+ plus yards on the same play over and over. Not because they blocked us up or executed, but because we failed in basic outside zone defense, something we have been practising against since Quinn got here every practice.
     
    The vikes beat us because in our first four drives, a boneheaded punt protection error and two boneheaded ints by a veteran mvp qb.
     
    I dont know what to think about this. I been drinking the Quinn kool aid, until now.
     
    I’m not giving up yet, but if the eagles game brings the same sorry performance, I think the season, and Quinns tenure, are over.
     
    Please lemme know how yall see things. Agree?Disagree?

    So does Keith Smith improve our running game?  If he does , how the heck did we have the opportunity to sign him? Why did Oakland release him? 
    I did some investigating last night and here is what I've determined. We finally have a legit FB that can legit run block and legit pass block.  Don't expect him to make "plays" with the ball,  but we don't need him to ....we just need a FB that can get after some a$$es and hit someone in the mouth.  And that is exactly what Keith Smith can do. 
    How did we get him? why did Oakland release him?   Oakland drafted a FB in the past draft...Ingold.  He was/is considered the best FB in the draft.  He is a playmaker waiting to break out.....down the road.  His opportunity started when Keith Smith required arthroscopic surgery on his knee approximately a month ago/right before training camp started.   With that being said, MOST iOakland enthusiasts fully expected Keith Smith to be the starter and Ingold to make the practice squad. Why?  Because Ingold is spotty to inconsistent with run blocking and pass blocking at this time.  He can catch the ball and make plays but he isn't yet reliable in run and pass blocking..Again he represents a better "playmaker" down the road but is the lesser when it comes to blocking. 
    So, (to our advantage), Gruden decided to go with youth and potential playmaking (and to my pain b/c I have Josh Jacobs in fantasy) instead of reliability and old fashioned smash mouth.
    Fellas, I doubt he was in the Falcons "plans" but we got an UPRGRADE at FB this year.. (which we haven't had since Dimarco.)
    Really think and hope this helps the run game. Although I do not know if he's fully over the arthroscopy he had.  
    I just haven't seen much about the potential this signing is for us.

    Yes.. I watched several youtubes last night of Oakland enthusiasts who did just that.   They watched all snaps via gamepass to compare Smith with Ingold and almost unanimously they all agreed that Smith was the much better and consistent run blocker and pass blocker. 
    I'm stoked about this.  As someone already said, we haven't had a good blocking FB since Dimarco.

    I went to San Jose State. Big fan of Smith. Have friends that are good friends with him. He’s hungry and has been around the elite with Dallas. We’re getting a good run blocker. Maybe the occasional goal line or short yard carry. Zero career tds

    He wasn't making the roster. Been saying that for a little while now. He can't block, his hands aren't that great, and doesn't bring much else to the table. Hope he pans out up there
