"The Falcons execute their gameplan better than anyone

You can tell the organization thought this through at the beginning of the offseason — grab a QB of the future in the draft, then build a team that can support him and alleviate the pressure. Strong running game: Check, thanks to free agent Michael Turner. Strike quickly for early leads: Check, as the Falcons are the best first-quarter team in the NFL. After getting lead, turn pass rush loose: Check, as John Abraham's been revived, currently tied for 2nd in NFL with 11 sacks. The Falcons executed this blueprint brilliantly against New Orleans, especially with a surprising defensive performance that picked off the NFL's passing leader Drew Brees three times."

This all points back to how well the coaching staff is preparing the team for each game on Sunday. They utilize the talent they have and make the best of it. This is the method the Patriots use. It's no wonder they have so many no name players, yet so much success. Just think what this team will be like with MORE talent.......

I can see why so many thought the Falcons would win 4 or less games this season. Everyone looked at the roster, but no one factored in the ability of the coaching staff. To be fair, how could you?

I love it. Strike fast then rely on your running game and pass rush. When you get an early lead it puts the opposing teams defense on their heels and makes their offense one dimentional. Plus when you have Turner and Norwood, just running to run out the clock leads to more points on the board.
