  1. It was just a point of reference.
  2. When Gurley crossed the goal Line, the Defense should have gotten together and determined that Detroit was not going to score. Blame coaching, blame personnel, blame who you want. But regardless of whether you wanted the points or not, you had a lead that required a touchdown to win instead of a field goal. Defense has to step up and do their job. They didn’t. This regime hasn’t fixed that problem since the 28-3 collapse, and it came back to bite us again today.
  3. It’s kinda like one of those toxic relationships; there are good things that you enjoy, but then there are those nagging things that make you want to be done with it. But you hang in there, because it’s what you have, and you’re not sure you can do better....
  4. Bobby Petrino led the Falcons to a 3-10 season before revealing how despicable and gutless he is. That’s right, that Falcons team performed better than this team currently is. just some perspective.
  5. How much of the success was due to him, how much was due to the State Farm Guy?
  6. Yeah, I’m not sure why we really never used the hurry up like we did in the previous season. I would be interested to know if that was Sark’s decision or Quinn.
  7. Teams were able to defend us because we have deficiencies in o-line play. Not sure why we reduced the play action game, or the bootleg read plays, but we rarely got protection that allowed Matt to have the success of the previous season.
  8. Realistically, aren’t those questions that every team has to ask about their season? How many drives were schemed well against what we saw in film study, but were shot down when we jumped offsides, helps somebody, or missed a block? I just don’t think it’s right to drop all the blame on the OC. People can argue play calling, but how many plays did we audible at LOS? How many bad reads did we have on coverage we were facing?
  9. Those three definitely have the size; I like the Samuels kid from NC State. The Flowers kid from Oklahoma is intriguing, I believe he has been utilized at fullback? I can’t help but think that solid o-line coupled with our defense, a good running game will get us back to where we need to be in the passing game. Eagles didn’t seem to be worried about our run game when we were near the goal line.
  10. Personally, I like our running backs, but I wish we had a big guy to put back there and bust ahead for those tough yards inside on goal line and 4th and inches situations. Some of that can be addressed through line blocking scheme. Maybe more counter, and more read option?
  11. At this point, I’m not really sure what that necessarily is. Maybe giving Matt more options from the LOS, maybe working on blocking scheme. Also, you gotta know that there is a LOT of tape out there on Shanahan’s offense. Sark not so much.
  12. Gonna be hard to justify firing a guy that helped win 10 games and made the playoffs. Period. I’m not a fan of Sark, but unless there is someone with a better record this season that you can realistically bring to Atlanta, then I don’t see a change being made. Of course, there’s the possibility that Sark doesn’t want to stay...
  13. maybe if we had better o-line play, Matt has more time to make more accurate throws, which give us a better opportunity to make catches? A lot of routes had to be broken off because of pass rush. Think of all the times we had to check down to the underneath route, or had to throw it out of bounds, or took the sack. 10 wins and made the playoffs. Coaches not going anywhere.
  14. Just a thought; maybe we outperformed expectations in 2016? Maybe we came back to reality this season? We got needed experience, remained relatively injury free, and made the playoffs. Kinda difficult to justify replacing an OC that helped you win 10 games. Even harder to bring in someone who won more than 10 this year.
  15. We need to upgrade on o-line. No doubt about that. But that is a solvable problem.
  16. Look, Only one team wins the big game each year. The odds are stacked against you, you have to have a lot of things to go right, and even fewer things to go wrong. The Patriots have missed a few Super Bowls during their run. We made the playoffs in back to back seasons. I remember when we couldn’t even string together back to back winning seasons. All this “doom and gloom” crap isn’t worth it. We had a 10 win season and made the playoffs after having major changes on our coaching staff. Our young players got some good experience. Our key positions were relatively injury free. Enough complaining already.
  17. Guess I’ll go post on a couple of Sark threads...
