Philadelphia76 Posted September 15, 2011 Share Posted September 15, 2011 Vick threw 32 times against the Rams and only had 187 yards. The Rams defense also sacked vick 3 times and had 11 QB hits. The Rams threw 36 times and that "All-Madden" secondary of the Eagles didn't have any INT's.I didn't watch the game, but the stats do not look impressive for a Dream Team type defense. The only two things that worry me about the Eagles are: McCoy and Vick running. Vick throwing isn't that scary and the Falcons have a TON of tape on him. If Atlanta can get pressure on Vick early, and lay a monster hit on him, I think the Falcons win this one. Let's hope Vick finds some old friends when he lands in Atlanta, and lets hope those old friends have a nice new 6 foot bong.The front four was great for the Birds, they didn't blitz and got tremendous pressure on Bradford. That being said you can run on them, but if your put into 2nd and long/3rd and long situations then the Falcons won't be very successful. And you should be afraid of Vick throwing the ball because of who is weapons are. Jackson, Maclin, Avant, and Smith will have favorable matchups during this game, not to mention the best pass catching running back from last year in Shady McCoy. The Falcons need to blitz Vick, if you let him sit in the pocket and make him beat you with his arm..he will, it's crucial for the ends not to get too deep either or he won't hesitate to step up and make the lb choose between him or a dump off to McCoy.
