Every Major Team Is Starting Slow

Brady lost his center, Rodgers his LT, Brees the best guard in the league. Oline play matters. Cutler and Vick will be lucky to be upright much longer playing behind their lines.

Falcons? Baker has become competent, Reynolds is playing well, Clabo missed a few plays with leg cramps in SD and Johnson stepped in, didn't miss a beat. Everyone is playing well enough that the 2nd rounder can't crack the starting line up.

Falcons Oline is healthy and has quality depth. One important reason for a 3-0 start.

Plus, Ryan has learned how to play behind this Oline. He doesn't hold on to the ball - he gets rid of it quickly.

Did you see the kind of time that line has to hold for GB last night? No OL can hold the onslaught they were facing for that long. They did pretty good the second half though, when they brought in extra protection.

Ryan has always done a good job of getting rid of the ball quickly, what I think he's doing much better this year is dealing with pressure when it arrives- sidestepping it, scrambling, stepping up in the pocket, or just making the throw with pressure in his face.

MM always told Ryan- don't make a mistake, throw it away, live to play another down; Koetter tells him to not worry about mistakes, make some plays.

Of course Koetter has a healthy Baker and a good D backing him up- things that MM didn't have. Still there's a radical difference in philosophy between the two coaches.
