vafalconfan Posted February 11, 2012 Share Posted February 11, 2012 Going into the playoffs all Mike Smith talked about was how we could not turn the ball over and I think Ryan was afraid to throw an interception. That and the fact that a pass play in Mularkey's scheme was such a big diagramed event made for a QB who was tentative to say the least. The O-line also played a big part, but when you are a run first team and you suddenly have to pass on the road it's a recipe for disaster and we all know that. The one positive from the Giants loss is that it opened the eyes of Blank and certainly Dimitroff. The hiring of Pat Hill will be looked back on as a stroke of genius if he rebuilds the O-line the way I think he will. Mike Nolan is going to be such an upgrade on defense that we will have a hard time recognizing this same unit. I really expect to see a different Matt Ryan next year and a different team as a whole..I am not at all concerned about not having a #1 pick in the draft. Koetter will help the offense, but Hill and Nolan were our #1 picks for 2012. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
