    autigerfan reacted to AUTiger7222 in Koetter explains why Falcons remained aggressive late against Bears - AJC   
    But when you're trying to protect a lead the yards don't matter as much as the time does and the Falcons only took 11 seconds off the clock on one of their possessions. It's just like the Super Bowl. The Patriots tied the game with 40 seconds left in the Super Bowl. 40 seconds is 1 dang play!! That's it!! All the Falcons needed in the Super Bowl was 1 run play to take 40 seconds off the clock and that game ever even goes to OT. That's the point. The time. Scoring and yards is secondary at that point.

    Ryan is not the ultimate problem with this team, but there are a lot of times that drives stall out or we kick a fieldgoal rather than getting a touchdown that come back to haunt us.  Ryan does need to accept some blame for that along with Koetter.  Until we field a competent defense our offense will have very little margin for error.

    I'm not gonna call our playoff losses agains GB and NYG choking per se, but we certainly did not show up at all for those games, which may be just another form of choking..

    Running the ball more...since it was working. Yet the coaching staff decided to throw it on 6 of 9 plays in the final three 3 and outs. Also, losing Julio and Gage matters. Gono going one on one with Mack matters.

    Quinn and staff are coaching for their jobs.  I honestly think Quinn could get the axe if we lose this game especially if it is in disappointing fashion.  If he doesn't make any adjustments and get the best players on the field after last weeks embarrassment then he deserves to be fired.

    autigerfan got a reaction from NashvilleFalcon01 in In a perfect (but very realistic) world, who would be your ideal GM, HC, OC and DC?   
    GM - Dimitroff
    Dimitroff has done a better job than any other personnel man in Falcon's history of stocking his team with talent.  The team has underperformed at times due to inferior coaching, injuries and a lack of vision for the football team and scheme.  
    HC - Jim Harbaugh. Lets face it there will likely not be a more proven HC available and this one may not even be available depending on what happens at Michigan. He turned around a downtrodden franchise, one that reverted to hot garbage once he left.  He should at least have more to work with in ATL for his 2nd go round as NFL coach.
    OC - Gary Kubiak. Considering we will never be able to capture the lightening in the bottle that was KS's offense in 2016 it is probably best to opt for the next best thing. Kubes has shown to deliver potent rushing attacks consistently and I think it would help take some of the pressure off #2 and extend his career.  
    DC - Vic Fangio. Kinda like Wade Phillips lite, his defenses are always on point.  Hard luck with Lock getting hurt this year but they may want to make a move if the team disappoints.

    autigerfan got a reaction from Dr Long Shot in I truly believe we will be an 11 - 5 team this season.   
    A loss like the Cowboys could send the team in one if two directions. 
     
    1) The players lose all respect for Quinn and see him as a lame duck and we fall to between 4 and 6 wins.
     
    2) The embarrassing loss against Dallas lights a fire under everyone in the organization and we go on a major win streak to finish with 11 or more wins.
     
    I find it unlikely that we finish middle of the pack again this year.

    autigerfan got a reaction from FalconsIn2012 in Falcons Conservative Offense: 2nd Down   
    Interesting stats and I am not surprised by this.  It also seems illogical to take this approach when we have to be one of the worst teams over the past 6-7 years at converting in short yardage situations via the running game.

    I think Matt Ryan is underrated by the media, but you really can't say he hasn't had weapons at his disposal.  He has had the #1, and #2 receivers in Falcons history and one of the top 5 greats at the TE position.  I would argue that Russell Wilson produces the most with the least talent around him among NFL QB's.

    This is very true.  Having been a lifelong Falcon's fan you realize that this team has only in the 2nd half of my fandom been consistently relevant.  Sometimes I wonder if Blank is content with consistent relevance over greatness.

    To be fair a lot of Hooper's production came from underneath throws that served to supplement the run game.  Hurst showed his athleticism even if he didn't show up much in the stat sheet this game.

    autigerfan got a reaction from Peteshweddy in Field Position   
    A lot of folks are assigning blame to the defense but very few teams are going to stop Wilson multiple times when he is starting drives on his 40 or in the opposing teams territory.  The early 4th down decisions reeked of desperation.  Why not take the points going into the 4th when we were down 2 td's?  I have no problem going for it occasionally on 4th downs but I want to see the playcalling creativity come out.  This loss goes on coaching IMO.  I'm not losing faith as I know it's a long season but we need to rectify the situational calls.
