We appear to be getting worst rather than better since bring him on board. It seems to me that our backs would go for the strips when tackling, haven't seen that lately. Are we still teaching that? We were playing closer to the line before the snap, reducing these 3rd and 5 downs, giving up slants that we are 10 yards off.? Bye Houston! Owens and DeCloud were rising stars. ? If our defense is so tough that 6 year veterans cb can't pick up in a week, but defense's can, then we may want to look into changing (miscommunication, confusion and flat out blown coverage over and over) Lets get to the heart of the matter! This coach has 1st 2nd and 3rd round picks to work with so we should be able coach these guys up! ? Its time for this coach to RISE UP!

Stripping the ball is something you learn in high school. The bottom line is these coordinators need to get it together or be replaced like we replace players.

I'll have to wait to see what proven players like Hayden & Sanders bring to the secondary, but for the life of me I can't understand how D-Rob went from being the ONLY good DB in Houston to struggling here. maybe we need to simplify the scheme and let players play to their strengths. I'ont know man

Fact vs Fiction

TIM LEWIS

SECONDARY COACH

BIOGRAPHY

Tim Lewis made an immediate impact in the Falcons secondary in his first season in Atlanta in 2010. One of the many areas where his presence was strongly felt was in rapid development of CB Brent Grimes.

Lewis’ meticulous work with Grimes vaulted the former small school product from Shippensburg from a potential starter in the preseason into a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl squad. Arguably the best athlete on the team, Grimes emerged through Lewis’ help to set a new team record for passes defensed in a season with 23. He was targeted 113 times by opposing quarterbacks and fought through that barrage to emerge as a dependable starter in a revamped Falcons secondary. Grimes showcased his talents and made Lewis look good by picking off a pass in the Pro Bowl.

Lewis was charged with rebuilding a unit with three new full-time starters last year. The addition of talented corner Dunta Robinson via free agency, along with Grimes, and the promotion of the hard-hitting William Moore to the strong safety spot, Lewis molded a young group together which was learning and getting better with each game.

Through the steady direction supplied by Lewis, Grimes and Moore tied for team lead with five interceptions. Grimes was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week (15) after he caused two turnovers, including a pass theft, along with five passes defensed, to help the Falcons notch a 34-18 win at Seattle. Moore finished third on team in tackles with a career-high 108.

Robinson amassed 60 tackles, seven passes defensed and one interception. The last member of the starting defensive backfield was dependable free safety Thomas DeCoud. The former third round pick from Cal quarterbacked the secondary for Lewis and ended up second on the club in stops with 113 to tie his personal-best.

Toward the end of the 2010 campaign, continuity and consistency began to take shape and this hungry secondary will no doubt become even more cohesive and disruptive with another year under the guiding hand of Lewis.

He was a terrible pick up, he has never done anything good with a secondary, I was really bummed when we signed him. Really bad move.
