Atlfanstckndenver Posted January 4, 2012 Share Posted January 4, 2012 The loyalty Mularky still to this day receives is seriously astounding. We have an offense with almost THREE 1,000 yard receivers, the NFCs leading rusher AND a pro bowl 4k yard passer. The above average offensive rankings are gonna happen. It doesn't matter if Micky Mouse is calling the plays. Well maybe then we would actually be less predictable. The way Mularky apologist use those stats as a defense for him are clearly using a skewed perspective. Despite all of the offensive tools and talent where we still not the lowest scoring team in the league in the 3rd quarter. Was it not the same or close to the worst for the 1st quarter offense??? Our offensive production consistently slipped on the road when we could not rely on the No Huddle attack heavily like we can in our dome. Any time Mularky was needed to call up an effective game plan on the road let alone against a decent defense we croaked horribly. Maybe the most telling aspect of all of this was that almost without ever failing when the offense's shots where called by Ryan it purred like a kitten the majority of the season (almost).Im so tired of the apologist here defending Mularky with little to back it up other than stats that are simply DESPITE him. The important part here is that whatever offensive success we do have it is seriously despite Mularky 99 percent of the time. He has had a couple of decent halves of football sprinkled in throughout the season. Just a few though, and every time he seems to be turning a corner the other team simply adjusts knowing Mularky will fail to advance his repertoire any further. This offense will not take the next step into the elite echelon until Mularky is out and someone who is not afraid to play with the new breed of nfl teams on their level steps in. This is such a broken record.Ive also heard the whole argument that the team draws too many offensive penalties(whats even more sad is that Ive heard Mularky himself point the finger at this, but does he EVER take any responsibility???). I agree with this. They do, and not only that but the way they draw the flags at such inopportune times is scary. There is a couple things to say to that. First off EVERY team has to deal with this. Its the teams that overcome and deal with those penalties best that are the cream of the crop in the league anyway. How many times did we back up the Saints in the down and distance just to watch them overcome and march right back up to a first down with ease. Green Bay can do likewise. The other point i want to make is that usually when an offense is clicking from players to play calling those penalties tend to happen much MUCH less. I actually think all the numerous bad flags we've had this year is yet another indication that this offense is STARVING for something new and innovative to stimulate everyone involved. On top of the need for play calling that plays into the hands of our current offensive roster as it is we need to fit the scheme to our players now. Fitting players into our scheme has had its shot. Its time for change, and when that change comes i will truly finally have an elite offensive machine to watch that moves at its own pace....NOT Mularky'sGood luck sunday Falcons!!!
