Xfactor Posted October 18, 2010 Share Posted October 18, 2010 If the Falcons don't fix the O-Line they are going to ruin Matt Ryan. I guarantee if you switched Manning and Ryan for one season Manning numbers would plummet while his sacks skyrocketed and Ryan would go to the pro-bowl.1) Our O-Line sucks in pass protection and negates all of our talent in the skilled positions.2) What Ryan could do if he could stand tall in the pocket and make a couple of reads. Now it's almost a pre-snap decision due to our pass protection which by the way takes away the deep ball. It's a domino effect and I'm convinced Mularkey's play calling is based mostly due to a below average O-line.I wish we would have spent Robinson's money on a top tier O-lineman because this is the source of our offensive problems. Building through the draft is fine but every one just gets older and it's sad that we couldn't have a great O-line to go with all of our current weapons.Switching to our D, I thought we over paid for Robinson so we could Blitz more. So Kolb drops back to pass in his own end zone (if i remember correctly) and I see Abe drop back in pass coverage REALLY ? BVG REALLY ? I literally spewed my beer and my wife asked what's wrong ? Watching the opposing QB's is just sickening Fox did a close up on one Kolb's many passing plays and I watched him read his progressions not once, not twice, but three times.Until we have a stable O-line that can pass protect and can utilize our weapons continue to see the dink and dunk pass plays.Until BVG starts blitzing expect the CB"s to play off the receiver in almost a prevent like D and we get carved up underneath. Then when we do go man to man or a cover 2 again no pass rush then BOOM 80 yrds TD.How can we expect to go anywhere in the playoffs when one coordinator is limited by his line and the other coordinator won't use his line. We need players on our O-line and a new defensive coordinator for our D-line, end of story. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
