Dr Boom posted a topic in Talk About the FalconsThose fans need corrective surgery to their perception. Falcons are are in the middle of an injury riddled season after b2b seasons with playoff wins and a SB berth. It’s wrong to blame coaching so soon. Its a knee-jerk reaction & lacks imagination. Personnel issues due to injury & talent deficiencies have prevented this team from playing to it’s strengths. All the weaknesses are glaringly apparent to opponents and there is no way to mask them right now. There is nothing the coaches can do until they have the players. It’s frustrating for everyone on the team to be pushed to do the impossible, the team game plan & philosophy can’t be followed through right now. Let’s talk about what adding two NFL starting caliber OG’s would correct: 1. MR2 would be able to climb in the pocket away from talented edge rushers, step up to plant his feet for intermediate & deep throws. 2. Give MR2 time to complete his timing throws, a staple of this offense. 3. Allow stretch run plays to make it to the edge and gain yards. 4. Open lanes to rush up the middle consistently, & set up a competent play-action that pulls defenders out of coverage. What about a big competent DT to play with Jarrett: 1. LB’s can fly around & edge rushers get more 1on1 matchups. 2. More sacks & pressures. 3. Less overcompensating in the secondary leading to penalties & blown coverages. Three players would totally change this team. You could get away with adding just one OG & a DT & make this team a contender. Falcons will not win without these corrections. Coaching is not the issue.
