Slow news day, I guess

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

1:18:25 pm Under coach Mike Smith, the Falcons are 4-5 on the road and 9-1 at home. Smith would like to see improvement in games away from home. "Our guys have to have a mindset that wherever you play you have to make plays," he said.

1:09:23 pm Falcons coach Mike Smith said his team needs to get more of a pass rush to be successful, but he credited the Patriots for putting two or three tight ends to protect QB Tom Brady on 50 of its 91 snaps. "Schematically, what they wanted to do was protect the QB differently than they did the week before."

What about the other 41 snaps? What about adjusting during the game?

I have never seen a Falcon coach that is good at adjusting during games. It's hard to do.

I only recall a few NFL coaches that were good at it. Bill Belichick, Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells. They were masters at it.

Bill Walsh was as good or better than all of the coaches you listed.

All three of those coaches had numerous assistants and coordinators who became head coaches.

The Titans are a good example of what happens to a defense when the pass rush fizzles
