juiceaccts Posted September 28, 2009 Share Posted September 28, 2009 Okay, I'm fed up with looking at all of the posts that flooded in after the loss, so I made a decent one. Tired of the idiot's calling for heads to be chopped, droning the phrase "same ol' Falcons," etc. So let's get objective...Yes we lost. We're 2-1. So what?We looked bad, offensively and defensively.We couldn't stop the run, we couldn't run ourselves. That alone is a recipe to lose.We played conservatively the entire game, even when we were behind in the 4th quarter. I'm talking offensively and defensively.The ref's were total garbage.Without watching the game twice, the only unit of our team I could fault would be the OL. Turner couldn't run, and we couldn't protect Ryan. Yes, Turner fumbled but those things happen. He wasn't being careless with the ball, it was just a perfect helmet-to-ball hit. It really killed our momentum (just like the call against Jenkins did.)We tried to rush 4 guys against ~6 defenders and played deep against one of the best passers in the NFL.We didn't go deep to test the defense of the Pats. They kept everything underneath them with ease, and shut down Gonzo.Basically, we didn't adapt at all to what they were giving us, so the play-calling was off, not the players.Positives? ...We have 2 weeks to fix our mistakes, and work in our 2nd-round draft pick and speedy cornerback to help our defense. We'll be rested up and ready to take on the rest of our schedule.We're ******* 2-1, quit bitching. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
