  1. If someone actually Game-plans for the Panthers, the Falcons have a shot. otherwise, lots of yards after catch for the bad guys.
  2. Neither are long term solutions.
  3. This team is a complete mess right now. I cannot watch them without getting frustrated. But with that said, creating a smooth transition is much wiser than just cutting Quinn without thinking through all the options.
  4. You forgot the part about the defense. “Dan, you are the smartest defensive mind in the game, you do not need to hire a DC. You take over. And remember just get guys that run fast, you can teach them all the football they need to know”. -Peter Carroll.
  5. This happened repeatedly, but other players were wide open deeper. I’d not get this defense at all.
  6. I am literally just watching for great individual effort by any player. The team defense is awful, and I cannot take another announcer saying Julio had an uncharacteristic drop. Somebody please play with awareness and explosion.
  7. We continue to see total lack of awareness from several players. “Guarding grass” is correct. As if they are told to run to an area, then ignore the potential receivers. No one moves until after the catch. Never saw anything like it.
  8. Not saying they have so far defended the deep ball, but Watson may be forced to scramble for 50 or 60 yards when he has Beez and Takk run past him with “pressure”.
  9. Dink and dunk QB’s kill them because the Falcons pretty much concede 6 yards in every pass play. That is part of the reason for few sacks. They get rid of the ball very quickly. Not sure why there is no adjustment to that flaw in the design of this D.
  10. At this point I have to believe this is being taught. It is maddening. It makes them passive and give the edge to the offensive player to gain extra yards before and after contact.
  11. I absolutely despise the idea that someone is guilty until proven innocent. It is not good in any way. With that said, AB is crazy to harass his accuser in social media or anywhere else. That severe error in judgment is what will get him suspended. That is totally on him. Cannot blame the Pats for cutting ties now. It probably won’t get better for him any time soon. Now he is wide open to criticism from all sides. If he matures, he can have a job someday. Up to him.
  12. 50% chance “major” is referring to the toe, not the injury. If the source is DLed, he might not take the time to look up the medical term (1st Hallux). Instead he called it the Major Toe, ha. I could happen.
  13. In scientific terms it is called Confirmation bias, the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses. You will likely confirm exactly what you thought you would find.
  14. Some camp goers are more informed than others. Thanks for the breakdown.
