    That’s my take as well, pass protection is a big deal for a RB and many fans just don’t recognize the utility of this.  Arthur Smith, as a master tactician, certainly does. Also, he rarely fumbles and that’s another biggie.

    O Falcão Risohno reacted to Macintez in ‘They have to rescue themselves’: What Arthur Smith is looking for from Falcons in preseason - The Athletic   
    “If you go out there and you want to show everything, you want to out-scheme everybody, that’s your prerogative,” Smith said. “But if you’ve got a battle in there at guard you need to call the same stuff to see them actually do their job. Otherwise, one guy gets the first half, things are close, and you call certain kind of plays and then you get down. Second half, you’re calling a different set of plays because you’re down (and a new guy is in), you’re throwing the ball all over the yard. It’s not a fair evaluation.”
     
    Goodness, that is the best analysis of preseason football/player evals that I’ve ever read. I have nothing else to say or add after that. Very transparent and fair.

    O Falcão Risohno reacted to Goober Pyle in ‘They have to rescue themselves’: What Arthur Smith is looking for from Falcons in preseason - The Athletic   
    by Tori McElhaney 
     
    At his coaching core, Arthur Smith seems to be a man based solely in realism. In literature, the realism movement formed as a way to represent a specific subject matter truthfully, as it is, without fluff and relative pretense. Literary realism — at its core — is the exact opposite of romanticism. And since his first day as coach of the Atlanta Falcons, Smith has never been one to romanticize anything, nor does he make snap judgments.
    When asked about his thinking throughout the evaluation process of training camp and the preseason, this specific brand of coaching realism is starkly Smith. He says often that he is challenged with making fair and comprehensive evaluations, not just on the daily but when days stack together. Over the years, he’s learned it’s something that — he said — is harder to do than it may originally appear in theory.
    “Day-to-day you’re looking at the film and you’re trying to keep perspective because I’ve seen it when guys have struggled in camp and you may not rely on them early in the year, but at some point, you need them and you see as they play more their confidence grows and maybe that’s even in Year 2,” Smith said. “Then there are other guys who we put out there early as a rookie and they come out fast but then they kind of hit a wall. It’s really a case-by-case basis.”
    A guy can flash one day but falter the next. For Smith, he’s keen on creating evaluations not on one moment, but a collection of them. It’s unfair, he said, to zero in too much on a mistake here or a big play there. That’s why he’s gone on the record so many times over the course of camp already to bring everyone’s perspective back to a realist’s level. Oh, there were a few more tipped passes and interceptions? Don’t read too much into that, Smith may say, it’s not what it seems because he’s putting more on the quarterbacks’ shoulders to see what sticks and what doesn’t.
    With the Falcons two weeks into training camp, there are still bits and pieces of this evaluation coming together all over the field. The next step is the first preseason game on Friday. Smith said after Wednesday’s practice that “there won’t be any trickery going on” for him as a play caller. The Falcons will play the Titans on Friday pretty straight. And there’s a reason for that.
    “If you go out there and you want to show everything, you want to out-scheme everybody, that’s your prerogative,” Smith said. “But if you’ve got a battle in there at guard you need to call the same stuff to see them actually do their job. Otherwise, one guy gets the first half, things are close, and you call certain kind of plays and then you get down. Second half, you’re calling a different set of plays because you’re down (and a new guy is in), you’re throwing the ball all over the yard. It’s not a fair evaluation.”
    Smith said it’s the same thing in practice. Continuing with the guard example, Smith noted he wants to make sure everyone competing for that spot goes against Grady Jarrett. You’re constantly evaluating how one player works out of a situation in comparison to someone else in the same spot with relatively the same variables (formation, play call, opponent). It may get repetitive for those watching in the stands or on the sideline, but it’s something this coaching staff needs to see to make decisions.
    “It’s never going to be perfect,” Smith said of the formula, “but you have to put the big picture in perspective.”
    With this in mind, don’t get caught up in romanticizing preseason games, especially a Falcons preseason game at this point in the transition from what the team was under Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff to what it can be with Smith and Terry Fontenot. You’re not going to get that picture after one preseason game. Heck, you might not get that perspective until 2022 or 2023.
    However, Smith knows that’s not how the general public nor the media operate. He’s seen a player have eight catches in a preseason game and fans go nuts over a guy that may not even make the roster. He’s seen a quarterback throw for 350 yards and have people call him a phenom. In reality, the quarterback was down three possessions and coaches just let him loose through the air to test out his arm strength and his abilities within a two-minute crunch.
    “Everybody is so quick to make snap judgments, and label this or that and get narratives going that just aren’t true,” Smith noted.
    He used this rookie class as an example.
    “There are going to be guys who flash earlier, doesn’t matter where they get picked, fifth round, maybe an undrafted guy,” Smith said. “It doesn’t mean the second-, third- or fourth- or first-round pick is behind (in their individual development). You have to keep the perspective in it.”
    There’s that word again. Perspective. So, what is Smith looking for in the preseason if not the narratives and trends those outside the building may be waiting to find?
    “They have to rescue themselves,” Smith said. “It is a huge part of the evaluation process because it’s the next step.”
    He wants to see players fighting for a roster spot do that. He wants to see that they are “past the memorization part” of the install. That it’s now muscle memory more so than it is memorization. He wants to run a clean operation Friday, as well as seeing players executing the technique that has been pumped into them for months at this point. Oh, and another thing: Quickness in decision-making. That’s a big factor of his preseason evaluations, too, for young players especially.
    “Sometimes I think football players don’t get enough credit about how smart they are, and how quickly they have to make decisions,” Smith said. “There’s a lot of critical thinking that goes into judgment and you have to make a decision and roll with it.”
    Who can think critically in the moment? Who can rescue themselves from a bind? Who handles the scheme well? These are the questions Smith will be asking himself, his staff and this team. It won’t have much of anything to do with who wins, or who had the most yards, or who made the flashiest play. Those are all important questions to ask from a particular set of eyes, but in the big picture scheme of a coaching realist, it’s the first set of questions that mean more.
    Practice notes
    • There is a new rotation taking shape with the second-team secondary. In the absence of Kendall Sheffield, T.J. Green has moved outside. He’s taken a majority of his live reps at corner with Richie Grant sliding in more frequently with Jaylinn Hawkins at safety (and Hawkins playing deep). How this group performs will be something to keep an eye on during the preseason game.
    • Jalen Mayfield had more live reps with the second team on Wednesday, too. Kaleb McGary still isn’t full go in 11-on-11 work. So it’s Willie Beaversrunning with the first team at right tackle and Mayfield with the second team. However, there is a chance we could see Mayfield and Beavers play together on the same line Friday. Smith said after Wednesday’s practice that the staff wants to see Mayfield live in that right tackle spot, and they also want to see what Beavers can do at left tackle. Smith said Beavers has a real shot at being the swing tackle. With Matt Gono forced to miss all of training camp, having Beavers slide into that role makes sense. One may also want to take note of Drew Dalman’s usage on Friday, too. We may see him at both center and left guard.
    • It’s still really interesting to see Jacob Tuioti-Mariner dropping back into coverage during the seven-on-seven period of practice. For someone who used to have his hand in the dirt more often than not in 2020, this camp has stretched the limits of what one might have thought Tuioti-Mariner capable of. With Fowler back, it’s been a steady rotation of Fowler, Steven Means, Tuioti-Mariner, Ade Ogundeji and Brandon Copeland coming off the edge. There’s been any and every combination of the group you can think of running with the ones and twos throughout camp. Smith has said a few times this is a competition that will continue to progress through the preseason.
    • Earlier in the week, it became apparent how much attention Kyle Pitts is getting as the future face of this organization when Smith, Dave Ragone, Justin Peelle and Matt Ryan all worked with the rookie tight end on perfecting a specific goal-line corner route. When asked about that moment, Pitts broke it down a little, saying how everyone is on the same page, but they’re all just coming at it from a different angle. And he’s actively trying to see it all.
    “Matt is coming from a player’s standpoint, where he may put the ball or how I can shake out,” Pitts said. “Coaches are coming from a technical standpoint. So, it’s just being able to put those two together and perform.”

    O Falcão Risohno reacted to Pa_Falcon_Fan in Why moving Foye Oluokun to the MIKE is good for the defense - Falcoholic   
    https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2021/8/11/22618502/why-moving-foye-oluokun-to-the-mike-is-good-for-the-defense?fbclid=IwAR24oilgW0Hze19dmtEyMYdKkjOeVRjNh4NgKuuUMn6seaItdnyyhlKxhDY
    Why moving Foye Oluokun to the MIKE is good for the defense
    Foye Oluokun, a sixth round pick out of Yale in the 2018 draft, has shown vast improvement and has expanded his role progressively on the defense since his rookie year. Last season was his best season yet, as he put up 77 solo tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 interceptions, and has proven to be a very athletic, sideline to sideline player. The fact that he’s a good tackler and very intelligent when it comes to making proper reads on the field makes him an asset to this defense.
    I write all that to make it clear that it’s no surprise to me that new defensive coordinator Dean Pees and head coach Arthur Smith are entrusting Oluokun to take over the MIKE role and assume those important responsibilities. The MIKE linebacker, the “signal caller” of the defense, is the most important role on the defense from a leadership standpoint that can also make plays in the run game and in coverage. That being stated, what does this move mean for the defense?
    Oluokun and the team benefit
    This, in my opinion, is one of the best moves for the team for multiple reasons. Giving Foye this responsibility is not a knock on Deion Jones, who has handled these duties in the past, by any means. Jones has actually played effectively at the MIKE when given the responsibility. However, this move actually benefits both players.
    Oluokun has proven to be a solid tackler and coverage LB, but even the previous staff stated that he catches on incredibly fast, is very intelligent (as you’d expect from a Yale graduate) and hardly ever makes the same mistake twice. Due to those factors and his athleticism, in my opinion, he’s better suited for the MIKE. For Debo, given his ball skills, speed, coverage skills, playmaking ability and his ability as a blitzing LB, putting him at the WILL without the leadership responsibility and just letting him wreak havoc should bring his play to another level. He did quite a bit of damage last year as a pass rusher and can do more with increased opportunities.
    Dean Pees and his defensive staff have certainly been making some personnel and player responsibility changes since being here, and they all certainly make sense. This linebacker corps has the capability to be a very solid one, certainly. Coach Pees is obviously seeing the same kind of talent in Oluokun that some of us have and fully has faith that he can take on this responsibility. Of course time will tell on whether this move completely pans out on the field, but in my eyes, it certainly fits what the team needs and what Oluokun offers, and is a step in the right direction for the defense.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    I think this makes a whole lot of sense.  Let Foye process and direct things on D and unleash Debo to be Debo.  I see this as a win and agree with the author of this article.

Absolutely loved watching young for the hawks in the playoffs
