jm_falcons Posted September 12, 2011 Share Posted September 12, 2011 OK...so we started 2 new OL in the game against arguably one of the tougher D lines we will face all season. I hate the phrase "tip your hat to them"...so I'm not going to do that. So its difficult to say that Reynolds and Hauley lacked effort. Unfortunately...they could just be a big bust for us.Otherwise...what I saw yesterday just looked like a lack of effort. I would like Smith to evoke a "leave your ego at door" type of policy. Weems...Decoud...Weatherspoon...and our veteran o lineman looked like nothing more than an extension of last years playoff game nightmare.As a long time Falcons fan...I still want to believe in this team. I sincerely hope that Smith is not going to accept this C R A P. The oline and our secondary needs to consist of the best players and if you are not giving 100%...you dont start. Given what I saw...based on effort...Biermann should start...while Edwards...Weems...Weatherspoon...Decoud should not. And the OL starting spots...the actual motor of the entire team...should be up for grabs as well. If the OL does not play well...the entire team will shut down. Our offense is not geared to be successful by trying to side step a weak OL. We simply dont have the type of offensive personnel to do that. We are not that type of a finess team. The OL must play well for the Falcons to do well.I understand its just a 53 man roster and they all have to play. But dont award staring spots for players who dont appear to care enough. No way is Chicago 18 points better...not even close. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
