  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.
  15. Thought you were being sarcastic in your prior post. You have an odd definition of mediocre. Not sure you realize how few top-tier quarterbacks exist. Who would you prefer?
  16. He has 3 games to earn the spot. Without dramatic improvement, he will not start. Quinn is not blind. Frankly he missed too often on ST last year too. Unacceptable the way he watches the play instead of getting his hands on people.
  17. Perhaps this will be best answered after some actual games are played. Tons of optimism for sure, but I say there is more quality depth than I have seen ever. 1st and second year guys will have to contribute to confirm what we all hope.
  18. The rest of the line did their job on all three plays highlighted.
  19. Cam is an amazing athlete, but he was the best player on the field his whole life. That breeds arrogance. The same fate that has happened to almost all great athletes has happened to Cam. The supermen persona made him think he was bulletproof. He could have avoided more hits, and gone down, but he knew he could withstand whatever came his way. He has more mileage than a typical pocket QB. He and the Panthers must protect Cam from all unesssary hits or he will not be able to soar above the crowd. Every year new kids come into the league and are faster and stronger. Humility is the only thing that can keep him in the league past his early 30's.
  20. Multiple times the throw was made a tad late. Last year the timing got better through the season. God things are ahead for the Falcon's offense.
  21. One of the great things about Quinn is that he lets players learn the hard way. Should pay dividends later in the year.
  22. There is a reason he was undrafted. His lack of coverage ability is clear to see at game speed.
