  1. Do you think it will take 2 years for Matt to revert back to Shanahan style offense?
  2. If a safety is talented enough to play a demanding position such as single high, does that mean they will easily be able to translate to every other defensive scheme (cover 2, cover 3...etc) since they will be responsible for covering less field?
  3. Considering the OC, predictability and crappy misfit of a scheme, I give them a B+/A-.
  4. Do you think we will be able to make the playoffs if the DC can get the defense to play at either middle of the pack level or at post DQ level at best? If so, I think our offense will be able to make up the gap difference if equipped with a good run game. Defenses usually don't take that long to turn around after an overhaul. We don't need them to be elite or even top 10 to make the playoffs. But if they do find themselves in that category towards the last half of next season, we might be on our way to the superbowl if Arthur has our offense playing above average.
  5. I think it's the defense that needs a complete overhaul. The offense, personnel wise, could compete for playoffs with a competent OC. The talent is more than enough at an positions except at RB.
  6. He could have used the Patrick Willis/ Jamal Anderson draft example. We passed up Willis for a need pick in defensive tackle Jamal. Couldn't believe Rich McKay did that as GM. He had no back up plan at that position when he couldn't land his DT in free agency.
  7. When PMF, JDaveG, Vel and even you are excited, I'm afraid it has to be the end of times. Rarely do the stars align for Atlanta like this. This is too OP!!!
  8. I want to see what he will do with Ollison. Please get rid of hill and Gurley
  9. Seriously Ergo, I think Raheem did a borderline excellent job as head coach and getting the defense to outperform it's talent level by a very significant margin. Thats the main quality I look for in my coaches. Do they have the ability to not only maximize player's talent but also help them believe in themselves to overachieve, especially when they are working with a dearth of talent. I think the Raheem and Jeff combination have proven they have these traits coupled with Raheem having previous head coaching experience to have learned from. I can only imagine what the defense would look like if they actually had decent level of talent. I wouldn't mind Raheem staying. I will even go as far as endorsing him to stay IF he could bring McDaniels back to Atlanta. The only thing we would have to rebuild is the defense. Period! Offense is already more loaded now than it was when Shanahan was here.
  10. And that's with a very horrible start to the season. Yet they eclipsed power over paid and over resourced offense by the end of it. Dirk needs to go!
  11. I agree. The defense has been far outperforming their talent level since coach Morris took over. I wish the offense can even perform somewhat close to average of their talent level. That's why when ppl complain about the defense not holding a lead or winning the game is where i side eye ppl because that's not how this team was constructed. Heck how many top teams are blowing leads this year? Can't have elite defense when more than 60 percent of cap space is spent on offense along with our 2 highest paid players on the team. We are stacked on that side of the ball while the talent on defense has been dumpster fire for years. Yet we are asking them to carry the team. Smh They showed up and showed out against the champions and best team in the league. Chiefs defense isn't elite by any means but our offense has a habit of making every opponent defense look extremely capable with or without their key players.
  12. Your inner FFS1970 is strong in this post🤣
  13. Heck no. I'm Nigerian. I know they definitely aren't.
  14. I really think someone or a group should start a business similar to pff for grading coaching and play calls. Maybe Vel, PMF, KOG, Ergo can team up for that. FfS1970 can create a PFF version for GMs. Not joking. I'm dead serious. Maybe we can pool capital together to get started.
  15. Had no idea about him. If the reporter that changed his name to Lombardi can get a GM job with Cleveland Browns, I hope Riddick can get a shot somewhere. Mike Mayock also got the GM job with the raiders. Until there is enough diversity amongst the team owners, the Rooney Rule can only help so much.
  16. I will promote Ulbrich to head coach. Demote Dirk and promote the wide receivers coach to replace him. We've already seen what Knapp, Raheem, and Dirk can do. I'm tired of retreads. It wouldn't hurt to see first timers calling the shots.
  17. I think we already have the pieces on offense ready to go. The offensive line and receivers. We need to hire someone from the chiefs or 49ers. Then allow them to hire their defensive coordinator to build that side of the ball from scratch. It will be the fastest turnaround that still allows us to somewhat salvage the back end of Julio and Matt era.
  18. Our Dline didn't look good after he left is what I was implying. If Grady can't go, I can see them being able to run down our throats. I really wish we could have traded for Calais Campbell instead of Hurst. Kotter barely uses him.
  19. Is Grady playing? He was hurt for the rest of the 4th last Sunday?
  20. If you look around the league, 30 points isn't enough and not many teams are maintaining leads in week 3. It came down to whichever team and their main player executing in those moments. Stats aren't reflective of those moments. The plays were there in week 3. No first downs the last 4 drives before they took the lead. The plays were there. Ryan didn't deliver. As a leader and "elite" player, he is often not capitalizing on moments. Not all is his fault, but when opportunities are there, I have no faith in him. I do wish we got him a good coordinator that's not a retread. Shanahan was the only one that he had had his whole tenure here. That's very unfortunate.
  21. I agree. Strangely enough, I felt we almost turned the corner yesterday. We almost put a complete game together for the first time all season. We were one clock eating drive or one deep pass connection to Z from getting that first win. We are almost there. Now I don't know what to expect for our next game with our injury riddled defense that barely had enough talent to begin with. Luckily saints are losing as well. The season isn't lost but we have to learn to finish from coaching on down. We're almost there. If we get there, I just hope we aren't 1-7 again before we hit the switch. This crap has got to stop.
