    falcndave got a reaction from Ergo Proxy in Falcons DVOA   
    Ergo is right. DVOA is adjusted for the strengths and weaknesses of opponents. For example, Seattle's defense is about the worst in football statistically, but they are ranked 23rd currently in defensive DVOA because they have played 2 high powered offenses (ATL, DAL) and one very efficient offense (NE). Dallas is a good offensive example. They are statistically near the top of the league in many categories, but DVOA docks them for having played 3 soft touch defenses (SEA, ATL, LAR(21st in DVOA)) so they are only 12th in offensive DVOA.

    After seeing him tear into the Chiefs offense last night when they were blowing out the Ravens but not executing well on a few drives I fell in love with him he will hold his players accountable no matter what and he played the game at a high level he’s perfect and he will grow with our new QB

    falcndave got a reaction from niels petersen in Let Morris finish out the year   
    Morris and Quinn share the same coaching strengths and weaknesses in my opinion. They have demonstrated in their HC opportunities that they are both players coaches who display high levels of emotional intelligence but lack the "anchors" to leverage that strength into either consistent execution of the little things or sustained effort. 
    I respect both Quinn and Morris. I think they can be successful. I even think they can be successful as NFL head coaches. I just think they need to get outside of their coaching comfort zones and bring in strong coaching personalities with diverse approaches to coaching. As Carrol has demonstrated, you can sustain winning while being primarily an emotional leader. However, you have to bring in personalities that compliment yours and add their own strengths to yours.
    I'm not anti-Morris in any way. I'm just anti status quo.

    Seattle didn't destroy us. Dallas didn't destroy us. Chicago didn't destroy us. That would be way too painless. Why would week 4 in front of the world be any less  painful that the first 3. "Destoryed" would be taking the easy way out for this team.

    I have to be honest with you all. I could care less if the Falcons are joke, if announcers clown them, if we are all laughing stock. Maybe its because I'm of a pre-millennial generation, but all that rep stuff means zero to me. I'm all about process and results. Continuing the get the same results with no major process changes is infuriating to me. I even think the offense was trying to be better until the 4th quarter when they went pass happy with the big lead. They ran the ball so effectively all day to protect the D, but after Chicago scores to make it a one score game you have an 20 second possession.   PLEASE. 
    This has to end now. AB, do what needs to be done. Show us that the results are unacceptable and the process will change to ensure results do as well. 
    To keep all the major pieces in place and expect different results may be hopeful, but it is not rational.

    It gets to the point where you have to do it just to let the fan base know that repeating the same mistakes is not acceptable...at any level of the organization. I just wonder who you turn the team over to?  Morris is probably the fan choice, but he is cut from the same "emotional leadership" fabric as Quinn. They team needs a more strategic approach where game planning for specific opponents and executing simple moves time after time is emphasized. 
    "Let it rip" and "all gas no brakes" only works if your starting point is somewhere near where it needs to be and you are pointed in approximately the right direction.

    3 TDs in under 5 minutes. That is as much on DK as on the defense. You have to burn 30 seconds a snap when up two scores.

    Concerning the defense and TATF opinions: The problem is that many people confuse "activity" with "improvement." The Falcons have had a fair amount of roster activity since last season but not a lot of improvement. As far as I'm concerned today, Jarrett is the only thing approaching All Pro talent the Falcons are fielding on the defensive side of the ball.

    I am still going with the teams culture being more of a factor in the brain freeze than the finer points of communication, terminology, and coaching. Fact is, those men saw a spinning football and were afraid they might lose the game if it bounced funny when they touched it. A fear that the game could get away from them kept them from recognizing that jumping on the spinning football was a clear path to victory.

    So far Gurley looks exactly as I expected. I haven't had a negative thought about his play yet. I think many who wear UGA colored glasses just came in with unrealistic expectations. He has been an improvement from Freeman last year, but he can't single-handedly overcome an underperforming group of run blockers at this point in his career (knee issues...not age).
