    too lazy to research this, BUT didnt we have a coinflip with Miami or something the year we drafted Ryan, or was it a different team. Perhaps we are headed in that direction again!
    Say what you will about the pass rush and defense but you can't deny we call a mean heads or tails. I'd really like to see more focus put on that for the remainder of the season. Perhaps some drills, loud music, navy seals, catch phrases, the whole works would be great.

    won't have to see it happen often. 
    Both parts are just bad.

    I am so baffled by this nonsense. I really wish I had an inside scoop that just explained how the defense got to be THIS bad. I expected middle of the pack at best, but even a top 20-25 defense would be fine. 
    SOMETHING happened. They didnt forget how to play football, they certainly understand this basic system; so what is the problem?! 
    Might as well just not even play the defensive players at this point. Just don't even send anyone out. We stand a better chance of stopping someone with gravity and wind resistance in the dome than this garbage.

    He was ran out of Seattle. People up here wanted him gone 2 years before he was canned.

    It makes me sad to think of the time we've wasted having pure incompetence at the helm of the defense on this team.

    We've been wasting a lot over the past decade. No excuse in this nonsense.

    Should we just go ahead and draft another QB for the next 10 years? We’re blowing Matt’s career

    I am guessing that's because the no huddle runs the risk of putting that terrible defense on the field even more. When it works its great; but a quick three and out and out marches the defense. BUT on the other hand its not like they could really do any worse so why not. 
  16. vitaman liked a post in a topic by revrndzombie in The Falcons defense is PAINFUL to watch   
    I guess this is where the "flying around making plays" and "fast and physical" and a simple scheme falls apart.
    Running around, not over thinking, seems to have run its course. Nothing like seeing players just running around doing random things to let me know this philosophy and coaching approach aren't working. 
    This season is perhaps the most disappointing one I can remember. I know there have been others, but the expectations versus reality of this one are horrific.

    Im not done. However, we have intentionally planned to take this sunday off from watching this team and do something enjoyable; spending the day in Yellowstone....
    I dont mind watching us lose, its nothing new.... its the nature of the losses that gets old. A hard fought loss is fine. Some teams are just better or some Sundays just don't work out. The lack of effort and horrific level of preparedness are what make me frustrated.

  20. revrndzombie liked a post in a topic by The Don™ in Falcons' Dan Quinn has no plans to give up play-calling   
    I admired Quinn's vision because he was direct and knew what he wanted. In terms of the exact type of players and scheme. It's like all of that is still spinning in his head somewhere but the lack of results on the field and questionable hires/fires after Shanny left tells another story on the field.
    His fate started to get sealed IMO when he hired Koetter (vertical offense) and Mularkey(power offense) to run a WCO/zone/Shanny offense...It was the oddest hiring decision that he's made (even more odd than hiring Sark IMO) and I think it will be his downfall. The defense is another downfall but that's another topic discussion.
    I thought hiring Sark was odd but hiring Koetter was even worse.

    Adaptability
    Coaching
    Schemes tailored to strengths. 
    Lack of dumb (*&^ catch phrases 
    Identity entrenched in the organization instead of impersonating other coaches and hiring coordinators to impersonate other coaches.

    True.
    I dont think that will be a problem this year. No one wants these coaches. 
     
    I wanted football to start so bad; now I cant wait till its over.

    Technically, bald tires would have a larger contact patch that tires with tread, as that is pretty much built to handle rain/water.
