Falconsfan567 Posted June 22, 2010 Share Posted June 22, 2010 The Falcons will have a killer defense this year that will finally take a lot of pressure off of Matty Ice and the offense and let them just go out and play ball without worrying about trying to score on every possession. Why can I say this with full confidence?Think back to the season opener last year against the Dolphins when we got to see a healthy Peria Jerry for a full game. Now remember that the Dolphins had a pretty good o-line last year. Jerry took up blockers and crushed the middle of the pocket leaving 1-on-1 blockers on the outside for Abraham and Biermann. They took full advantage racking up 2 sacks each and causing havoc for the Dolphins offense. We forced 4 turnovers in that game. We came within the final 5 minutes of having a shutout in that game.Now fast forward to the final 4 games last year when Owens and Grimes were the starters at corner. We shutdown and the Saints, Jets, Bills and Bucs. And I don't want to hear a **** thing about rookie QBs and such. The Jets were in the AFC Championship game last year and we beat then on the own field. We totally shutdown their running game when everyone else couldn't.The Falcons defense will be the backbone of a 13-3 season that allows the Falcons to win the NFC South this year!
