    HouseofEuphoria reacted to vel in After the Boom: How to build a modern NFL defense (it doesn't start at corner or on the edge)   
    The reason it applies is because they let a future proof player in Malcolm Jenkins go. Byrd was legit in BUF, but the scheme they were building around was exposed at that point and they lost the integrity of their defense (Sounds just like Atlanta right now) by chasing something they didn't need to. 
    I've said it here, the Saints tried the Cover 3 thing and bailed on it all in one season. It was the smartest thing they did in all of those 7-9 seasons and you're seeing why now. They can run multiple coverages/schemes because they didn't marry one.

    Pretty obvious our secondary misses Manual, which was where he excelled as a coach.

    HouseofEuphoria reacted to vel in After the Boom: How to build a modern NFL defense (it doesn't start at corner or on the edge)   
    Since most of us have moved on to trying to figure out what the heIl went wrong with this defense and how to rebuild it, I wanted to post this article. Steven Ruiz made a four part series essentially looking at life of NFL defenses after the Legion of Boom. When Carroll came into the league, he brought his Cover 3 defense. It took the league by storm and won him a SB. But we've seen everybody else struggle to get even close to replicating it. Why? Because the offenses in the NFL have adjusted. So much so, that if you run a heavy cover 3 base defense, you will look bad. It's just like when the Tampa 2 was destroying offenses then looked like it was something out of the 70s trying to cover modern offenses. 
    Ruiz has been looking into what went wrong, how to cover modern offenses, how to stop the run, and how to even build a defense in this new offensive environment. You can read the others, but I wanted to start with the building part, because I think it will set off a ton of alarms to the issue and how this offseason should go if we hope to see any improvement on that side of the ball:
    DQ, for all of the flaws this defense is showing, may not have been wrong in his approach to the defense this year. If you notice, they run more Tite with Bailey, Davison, and Grady. They have a massive personnel issue though. After the DL, they have Debo and nothing else built for this modern offensive league. That's why they look terrible on a weekly basis. I think DQ was hoping he could reconstruct this defense on the fly, but he can't overcome the lack of personnel. They needed a full overhaul of the defense but couldn't justify it. Guys like Vic, Campbell, Kazee, Ish are not fits for what's going on right now on defense. They added Wilcox to add more athleticism and coverage in the middle of the field but he went down. They didn't have the cap space to truly overhaul this defense, but he saw it needed to be. Unfortunately, he may be losing his job before he can do it. 
    They don't run as much Cover 3, but the problem is, he's got a bunch of players who aren't comfortable running the other coverages. That's why he stressed communication all offseason. Cover 4 especially requires pristine communication. He may be getting fired, but I wouldn't be surprised if the next DC gets a chance to completely overhaul this defense and they finish what DQ started. You've got decent DL personnel to build on. You have one of the best MLBs in the league to build around. Getting Neal back will be interesting, because he fits that mold of hybrid safety, but without the ball skills, do you invest long term. 
    All in all, this defense is terrible because they aren't built for today's NFL. That's a fact. They aren't well coached, but they also aren't much more than just a collection of talented players in mismatch roles. You have two man cover corners, but the rest of your defense is built for zone. When you go zone, you don't have a secondary that communicates well, leading to several lapses in simple coverages. You don't have a deep pass rush, limiting your ability to get pressure without blitzing, but you don't have sound blitzing players in the back seven so you revert to more players in coverage, but that gives QBs more time to find an open WR. 
    It's a cluster right now, but I'm not overly pessimistic it should be a long term issue. Do I think DQ and TD are the right men for the job? I don't know. But would the next HC/GM truly see where the NFL is headed and plan appropriately for it?

    You don’t trade Hooper. He’s developed a very nice connection with Ryan. We’ve struggled at TE enough seasons since Gonzo retired.

    HouseofEuphoria reacted to FalconFanSince1970 in Can We Please Take The Quickest Path To Rest?   
    I'm tired. Plus my pops is 93 and bought the freakin $10K PSL after I advised him not to. He's been hangin in there even longer than me. We need rest guys. I started out as a Packer fan in 1966 because they were the team I used on the vibrating NFL game he gave me for Christmas. Bart Starr was my man. Switched to the Rams when I saw the fearsome foursome and Roman Gabriel. I didn't become a Falcon fan until 1970 when pop took me to my first Falcon game. Against the Steelers. We beat em after Harmon went off. At the time I wanted to be a RB so dude was my first favorite Falcon. Followed by Nobis, Claude and many others. 
    Seen lots of good Falcon fans leave this earth since then. Simply trying to get rest. I don't want to be one of em. At this point I would love to see us spark up an as beatin run. I'm talkin a 9-1 run to get to a second season on a streak. Then go 4-0 to get some rest. I know it sounds far fetched but it's possible if we open up a can of whoopass Sunday and stay on that path. We have the tools. Gotta execute. Players and Coaches. The 2019 league looks watered down to me. Primed for an as whoopin. Dimi might need to add a vet corner and pass rusher before the deadline though. Definitely don't wanna see another rebuild. And please Never Tank!!!
    We've gone on runs before. See 1980 (11-2) , 1991 (10-3), 1998 (11-1), 2002 (7-0-1), 2008 (9-3), 2010 (13-2), 2012 (13-3), and 2016 (11-4). This league is way softer than it was in those days. The only team that looks legit to me this year is the Patriots. We owe them some get back. I'm really hoping Quinn can coach up his defense starting Sunday and get us headed in the right direction. He usually does in the second half, but he needs to start this Sunday in Week 7. Blank needs rest, Pops needs rest, I need rest, you need rest, we all need rest. Coach em up now Quinn or State Line. Dimi and several players too. We need rest now. Not in 2023.

    Behind the negativity on this board, Atlanta is 3-0 in the most recent match-ups and 2-0 against Goff. Matt Ryan and the offense will have the advantage. We are playing at home, West Coast team playing early, a Rams team that is not that good and with OL issues and running issues. Goff is an overrated player and all you need is to rush him and put pressure on him even if you don’t get the sack.
     
    The Falcons will up their game because they are playing the NFC Champs and the defense will be serviceable.

    Have you looked at Ohio State's schedule and who they've played? Oh boy, they've really had it tough with Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati, Indiana, Miami (Ohio), Nebraska, and Michigan State. Those are such power house offenses!! Chase Young must be really special to be doing what he's doing against those teams. How many of those offensive linemen are gonna be first round picks?
    Seriously, there is absolutely nothing wrong with me questioning how good Chase Young really is.

    Here's the thing about TATF and tanking. First, I dont like the idea of tanking. My opinion.
     
    But the way I see it most of you TANKERS, want to get a better draft choice, but dont have faith in the front office to draft the correct people. Just saying. Be careful what you wish for.
