Ricardo Allen was a beast last night. I loved the hit in the end zone that broke up the pass. He knew it was a possibility and he backed it up saying he'd be there. He was also a coach all over the field last night. Making pre snap reads and communicating to the linebackers. He was a field general. But best of all I actually saw him take a few more risks and play VERY physical. I've been one of his biggest critics in the last few years. But I'll give him his credit for last nights game. He balled out.
Checkout Pound4PoundATL's video on what we saw on the Atlanta Falcons Military Appreciation Day. From our live stream on our channel.
So I saw that article about the secondaries rankings for the season, and we were #5. It made my blood boil with excitement. Since I received so much love from the Freeman highlight video I made, I decided to do one for the secondary. Do yah think we can have the best secondary in the league this year like the Broncos of 2015?
I apologize but Allen's talent in this scheme is very questionable. The bulking up is only helping him in terms of run support otherwise he looks like nickel/ss with explosion yet limited range. I honestly believe he's due to regress this year because rather than adjusting to the position he's trying to be a "safe team player" and adjust to the scheme. The way Winston was dropping passes over the top of his lil swoll self was ridiculous. This guy is a stopgap not a starter as you will eventually see as the season progresses. He isn't scaring a soul out there and he's not a ballhawk just good at underneath and single high positioning. The speed regress ain't gonna cut it tho. We will continue to have the toupee top on defense until maybe DQ finally admits that these position changes are as bogus as an IT guy suddenly becoming the number one human resources guy outta nowhere. Cute and slightly creative but ultimately DUMB.
