Thoughts on Starting Team


Recommended Posts

Julion Jones is Beast Mode

Matt Ryan Looks sharp

Michael Turner Looks back to 08 Form

Harry Douglas looks sharp

Overall Falcons Offense is going to ( The Greatest Show on Turf 2.0 )

Starters on defense looked quicker than fast

Backups are definitly not looking as sharp as I would like but not horrible either I do like their potential

Lawrence Sidbury is looking quick and solid

Franks will be a better nickel over owens, but he needs to work on wrapping up

Bush is actually looking pretty good

This defense is going to be scary when Edwards takes over

Overall we are going to be an explosive strike team or run and controll the clock, we can do either. Defense is looking quick fast and playing in your face football. Great year ahead of us guys,

The NB job is Franks.

Baker has to pick it up. He's going to get Ryan hurt this season. No excuses.

Reynolds, all things considered, did pretty well at RG tonight. His pass protection was a bit spotty at times, but he did pretty well in his first action. I think the job is his.

I'm stoked about Julio. I'm not going to get too giddy, but I was thrilled about what I saw. His game speed is incredible. Nobody his size should be running like that. Julio alone will really change the way we go about the offense, and it creates another dynamic to what we'll do. Again, I'm not going to go overboard with excitement, but I saw exactly what I wanted to see.

The secondary's depth scares me. It's a grease fire behind the starters. Not much else to say about it. It's true.

Not much else to say about the first preseason game. About what I expected.

The only thing I'm a LITTLE worried about is Ryan's slow starts. This has been happening for some time now. Doesn't mean squat in a preseason game, but it can hurt when it counts.

I understand "shaking off the cob webs", and he looked sharp as a tack after the first set of downs, but slow starts can kill ya. Other than that, I thought the first string looked great and although it's very early, it appears Julio is gonna be everything we are counting on and worth it all.

Aside from that one blown coverage, Darrin Walls was impressive

Coach said:

ON THE TWO MIAMI TOUCHDOWN PASSES: It was tough for those guys. We saw the route combination and I’m defending the young man that was out there. We had not seen that route combination. It will be part of our installation as we move into next week. It was something that he hadn’t seen. It was two good plays by thing.

I'm guessing that was on Walls. No way Owens doesnt know all the routes by now

So how did Biermann look....was he the other starting DE? I would see us keeping 4 or maybe 5.......

Abe

Robert

Sid

Kroy

then chauncey

or is Biermann falling on the depth chart

Sidbury will not make the team. I know lots of people like him, but all it takes it watching Sid and you see he learned his pass rush from Anderson. It's bad.

Mathews makes the roster in his place.

???????Hasn't Sidbury been going to that training place in Florida with Abe during the off seasons?

It's going to be fun.

Matthews a sack, Stephens a sack, McCarthy a tackle for loss

After the bad start in first set of downs was pleased. BUT I'll wait till at least 3rd preseason gm if not 4th till I condemn anyone OTHER THEN OWENS.
