Spoon And Edwards...


Recommended Posts

I am re-watching the Bears game...and 2 players are sticking out to me.

Spoon and Edwards......and not for good reasons.

On Forte's screen TD, Edwards was jogging after a very catchable Forte, and on MANY plays Spoon is just jogging after guys he potentially has a shot at.

Not to mention the myriad of other disappointing plays from Spoon...completely whiffed on that Forte screen pass, and was washed out of a play due his poor decision making on the off left tackle long Forte run.

Very, very disappointing...especially when I see guys like Nich and a defensive tackle 55 yards down the field trying to tackle Hester.

I saw that too. But i think overall I simply observed that Atlanta was out played and out game planned. After re-watching game, had we executed and not made stupid mistakes (fumble, missed Spoon tackle (or push) and missed INTs for example) the game would have been a lot closer. Our talent level is there; we are just not cohesive yet. The only true weaknesses I saw were three: 1) Bosher--I don't like this kid at all. And his weaknesses hurt us. But, i'll give him a break as STs are the bears thing--but the iggles are good at STs too! 2) Hawley: He looked so overpowered and weak 3) Baker: The thing with Baker is i don't know if it was simply a dominant bears DLine; or Hawley constantly needing help that hurt him most.

I do think these things are possibly correctable (particularly the mistakes)

Baker played good in the first half, he contained peppers from generating a lot of pressure. In the second half, and behind in the scoreboard, peppers owned him. Hawley played bad all game long, as you said, overpowered and weak, reynolds didn't look good too. I think Bosher played an average game. Being his first game in the NFL, he punted well, specially that one in the endzone. The KO were bad, i don't know if it's a coach decision, but he keeps kicking to the sides of the endzone, he just have to kick through the endzone, best way to stop a return.

So id like to think im an objective Falcons fan, and I call it like I see it.

And in the 2nd game(against Philly), Spoon and Edwards both played much better...and played with much more passion.

Edwards was getting after it in run support, and obvioulsy made a heads up play on the fumble return...I was hoping though he would slow up at the end and simply punch Jackson in his trachea...o well.

Spoon played the run support much better too, and had better flow to his game.

I liked what I saw in their effort this week.
