    One time for this great suffering city. Focus. Make it happen. Who cares if this season will likely end up with an asterisk. The heck with 2016 and LI. That’s long over. Get it together as one mind and get it done! One time Falcons!!!

    Once again, I think it comes to balance. When you throw at a 2/1 ratio, you are off balance.
    But it's not a 0 or 1 decision. When you ask your OL to hold to long, you're asking for turnovers. But OTOH, when it seems you are only throwing "dig/stick" routes like under Mularkey, you're not going to get the YAC you need to be explosive.
    I LOVE deep balls. But they work WAY better in tandem with play action. So if you haven't earned the right to throw deep by having a legitimate threat in the running game, you're not going to be very successful.
    So, to point out a few things about our personnel:
    1) We haven't been very good on the OL the last several years
    2) We haven't ran the ball very well since 2016
    3) Matt is not exactly a "throw it a mile high 70 yards downfield like Aaron Rogers" type of QB. He can throw deep when he times it well, and he's deadly in that 20-30 yd intermediate range. But the deep ball has NEVER been his strength.
    For Koetter to insist on deep balls when we have these three things working against us is pretty foolish if you think about it. Now if you call a 25-yard out route a "deep" ball, then I can agree. But in my mind that is not a deep ball. It is intermediate. 
    Personally, I hate the "20 play grind down the field grind" offense like we had 2010-2012. We also no longer have Gonzalez who made a lot of that possible. I LIKE the deep ball, mixed with appropriate play action. But mostly, I like routes going toward the opponent's end zone rather than toward our own end zone, or horizontal. I like DIAGONAL routes the best, because you still have forward momentum, can catch in stride, and you're typically crossing a zone. They are also easier to catch than a vertical route. You just have to be careful of a safety or deep LB undercutting the route.
    The PERFECT football play imo is the play action deep post. If you execute it well, and have a threat in the backfield, it is almost always a killer. Chris Chandler destroyed teams with that in 1998. And ironically, the same play killed us in SB 33.

    I'm thinking he's been a 2-time NFL OC and an NFL Head coach and he sounds like he's just now figuring this out?

    I think considering the deal as a whole and what we lost for a backup, it was not good. Likely Pro Bowl player leaves AND we lose our 2nd round pick? Makes no sense whatsoever to me. I hope Graham is ready.

    He totally understands situational football. His mindset is to IGNORE it. That is both his strength and weakness. It's why he is so unpredictable as a play caller. And it's also why he botched the end of 51.

    Yeah, scheme. Like a team that actually RUNS the football and goes to the NFCCG. Unlike our sit at home in January, 2/1 pass/run ratio BS.
    There was nothing wrong at all with Garland's run blocking. He was kind of a mauler and played to the echo of the whistle. He was tenacious. I'm glad he found a team that appreciates that.
    Sorry, I'm just a little testy right now that our ex OC and ex QB coach (who was too "inexperienced" to keep as OC) are facing off in the NFCCG and we're stuck with "7 step drop Dirk".
    Gross mismanagement top to bottom.

    Their are even more similarities in the owners. Not in terms of personality, but in terms of taking a more active role in football related decisions. Because that's the norm here, we seem to think that is the NFL norm. But it is decidedly NOT. Especially with the more successful franchises.

    It's hard enough to move from #5 to #1 much less from mid-round. It would take Julio in a trade and about 4 draft picks to do it. For one guy.
    Yeah, he could be a generational game changer. He could also have a career injury and never reach his prime.
