  1. I wish Freeman was bigger or had power. It shouldn't have been a 3rd and 2. Im tired of these scat backs.
  2. Thanks man. I don't know anything about him. It's he at least better than ish in coverage? I am scared of another career game for the titans tight end (delanie Walker? ). He is actually good. Im tired of guys becoming household names and signing shoe deals after playing Atlanta.
  3. I will award TD gm of the year if he makes this happen.
  4. They don't play against us much either but they had our defense on their heels all game. I think you're being hyperbolic asserting that some of us are expecting the team to go 16-0. Im more concerned at how badly we are beating ourselves more than the other team is. The philly game shouldn't have been that close but we allowed them to make it a game and our defense, because of miscommunication, almost blew it last week. Minnesota blew us away because of lack of edge discipline all game. While other teams with lesser talent overachieve against us. If Falcons aren't beating themselves with the same mistakes through out the game and the opponent wins, I can live with that. When you know all they have us a quick short passing game (as vel scored correctly) with their tight end being their main receiver and a very good run game, but still come out getting gashed over losing your assignment repeatedly or Quinn putting the wrong matchups like Ishmael in coverage, something is wrong. That's why I questioned the quality of practices. There is no way colts should have only had to punt once or twice and brissett looking like black manning out there. I haven't lost faith in the team yet. While ive lost some faith in Quinn today, I still believe he gets this unit humming eventually. I will always be worried about the offense. No matter what coordinator we acquire (Shanahan not included) that side is usually underperforming. That's why I don't expect much from Matt and the offense. We have so many weapons but get so little out of them. I couldn't believe Luke stocker had more targets and receptions than Ridley. Yet we couldn't stop a hobbled Ty Hilton and a tight end the whole game getting passes from a back up qb. The good take from this is hoping that this be the game that had finally helped Matt get the cobb webs out. He looked possessed in the 2nd half.

  6. Something isn't translating from these practices fatboi. The tackling issues and losing assignments. The quality of practices are probably the problem. That falls on the coaching staff. I can understand if they were killing us with trick plays or exotic stuff but they weren't. They were looking confused on many possessions. That's excluding the penalties.
  7. Hey @vel, if it isn't too much to ask for (pwetty pwease pwease), can you include the main plays you will use for offense and defense against said teams especially if you feel they can be had in certain looks, alignments, etc..? Like would it be better to play 5-2, 3-4,4-4 bear front or over/ under (I'm making stuff up at this point) since they will be leaning on the run heavily and the short passing game? On offense do we focus mainly on running from spread formations when they are in thre cover 2 (if that's their main look) or do we line up in the I formation and pound the rock down their throats?
  8. I know I will be afraid if Quinn doesn't allow trufant to follow Hilton where ever he lines up. I am scared of Hilton vs Oliver matchup.
  9. I wholeheartedly agree. I think if vel, gazoo, peytonmanningforehead, and tdwii ever get into writing articles, they can easily make money. I know I will certainly buy.
  10. That was an amazing throw by Matt. I was initially against him making that throw into double coverage going deep but was frozen in awe how well placed the ball was for Calvin to be able to get his hands on it. That catch would have been a 9 out of 10 on difficulty scale if Calvin would have reeled it in. While I like Matt going deep, even I thought that was too risky. I liked that he tried to stay aggressive. Hope he comes to terms with when he should go deep during film review this week. Please make those throws if our receivers are in single coverage Matt!
  11. I totally agree. He also emphasized driving the ball not throwing it up there like a lob which annoys me about that part of his game. Dirk needs to help grow Ryan's confidence in taking those shots with his receivers in the end zones for those jump balls and back shoulder throws.
  12. I think the defense will definitely do their part. It's the offense in worried about. I will not be surprised if we lose this. It won't be because of the defense. If the offense can even play average, we will win.
  13. I don't follow the Jaguars but why would you not consider it?
  14. I don't see this as a permanent good bye. If we're experiencing injuries weeks later, I'm pretty sure the team has him on speed dial. Heck no one expected him to ever make it inside the falcon facility after getting released few years ago. Injuries happen. I wanted to see how his play would have elevated with Quinn finally putting his prints on the defensive linemen. Beasley and takk look much improved after an offseason with Quinn.
  15. I loved watching Martz offense with kurt, isaac Bruce, Tory holt az-hakim and Marshall Faulk. It was a beauty but I also remembered kurt getting clobbered often because the routes took a minute to execute. Now that I think about it, I would say Matt has a slightly stronger arm than kurt but kurt loved airing it out so his guys can make thre play for him and demoralize defenses.
  16. Thanks for the video to use as reference. I hope Dirk gets Matt confident enough to try those back shoulder throws in the end zone like I saw in the highlights from Fitzpatrick and Winston. Also I don't mind good interceptions jdaveg. Interceptions are never good overall but if it's to a Julio sanu or Ridley going deep like yesterday, please take the shot. Even though Matt didn't connect with hardy and Julio in some of those attempts, I like that he took them. Just don't under throw it to the extent your receivers can't bail you out. I hope to see more of them from Matt as the season continues.
  17. You can check my posts in your weekly pre game scout thread. I called it too that the defense would show up. Just didn't trust the offense. I have the same confidence in Quinn defense as I did with Shanahan even when they have a bad game. These two are excellent at their respective sides of the ball and they have a long enough track record to back it up. I even saw glimpses of it in week 1 despite the loss.
  18. Really? Then why are his vertical concepts more creative than Dirk's? I tend to see tyreke hill and their other weapons get open with space often despite defenses knowing to key in on them. I haven't seen those kind of free running space for our guys since Shanahan left. I wish Dirk would pull from his playbook. At least Sean mcvay wasn't afraid to admit it last year.
  19. Did Dirk coordinate under Andy Reid at some point? Doesn't Andy Reid run a west coast offense and Dirk's is Coryell?
  20. Were we in a cover 4? I don't know how thr receiver got that open on a 4th and 14. I had that here we go again face, only the Falcons can this happen to. Lol
  21. I hope and pray for that to happen but I'm not holding my breath. I think we need to start activating one of the bigger backs especially Ollison. He would have made a difference falling forward for those extra tough yards that ito and Freeman just don't have the power to pick up.
  22. Can you list them? I wanna learn too. Don't keep all the good stuff to yourself man. Share that ish.
  23. Can the x's and o's guys tell us if it's an oline problem? There were several times, when Freeman was running up the middle, that I thought that Ollison could have picked up an additional 3-4 yards if he had been the game. Thre goal line run that ito got stood up on also had me thinking Ollisin would have probably either gotten a touchdown or made it to the 1. I also think the play action would have been more effective in the goal line if Ollison was present as well. The linebackers would have crashed the line so hard because he packs power. I don't think Freeman has lost it. I just question whether he fits mularkey blocking scheme as effectively as the one cut scheme we had before.
  24. You don't think last weeks film will cause philly to pull the okie doke on us by doing the exact opposite? Keeping us in base defense to test our run defense?
