falken Posted January 9, 2012 Share Posted January 9, 2012 Some of you can call for coaches heads if you choose. I ask of you to at least try to look at this from the inside out.I don't think our current coach and coordinators are going anywhere unless they are hired by another team. As much as some of you discount the regular season success we have had over the last four years I don't see ownership abandoning ship without the ship sinking. As low as yesterday felt the focus needs to be on fixing the problems and not with scrambling to find a new staff with the teams that wish they had been in the playoffs.As some of you know I have been behind our current staff 100%. I believe that this team has become a talent enriched franchise that is on the cusp of the next level. I also believe if we don't find offensive linemen that can win the battle at the line of scrimmage we are going to continue to struggle against quality opponents. In a have or have not league.....it all starts up front.We have some talent on this team. The playmakers are there. The Giants exploited our biggest weaknesses and for this team to move forward those weaknesses need to be addressed.We got mauled in the trenches. The Giants are without a doubt one of the best teams up front on defense and our offensive front was manhandled. There isn't a QB in the league that could have succeeded today behind this offensive line. There isn't an offensive system in the league that could produce behind the effort/talent that this offensive line displayed today.I have been a Thomas Dimitroff fan since his arrival. I thought he gave our team a new energy. I also think he may have gambled too much in a crucial area that cost us dearly. I think he took a shortcut in building this team and it has been our Achilles' heel. We have drafted the QB, like him or not, that is going to be our guy for the next 8-10 years. We have gave him ample firepower to work with from the skill positions. We just got ahead of ourselves and forgot to get blockers for all of those playmakers.I will be a Falcons' fan til the day I meet my maker. That will never change. But for me to continue being a fan of Falcons' management I need to see improvement in the quality of offensive lineman on this roster even if it means the exit of some of the star-power positions we currently employ. I realize we don't have a number one pick this season but we shouldn't take that as an excuse. I don't care if Tommy D. himself has to scour Asia to find Sumo wrestlers to play offensive line it has to be addressed.Those that want to focus their energy toward ripping this staff have at it. That's your right as a fan and I hope you find the satisfaction you are looking for by doing so. I don't get it but we all have different points of view. I'm currently behind management and staff and reserve the right to change my opinion when I see what changes are made or not made in player personal.I'm looking forward to seeing what moves this team makes in free agency and the draft. I'll even go to Japan and scout a few Sumo wrestlers if Mr. Blank will cover the expenses. In the meantime I'll postpone my dance down Peachtree and try to hide my disappointment until next season.....only a couple of hundred days until camp!
