Geno Atkins

25 posts in this topic

Geno Atkins has 18 1/2 sacks since the start of the 2012 season. That's insane for a defensive tackle. He has turned into a monster. Just saw the news about his ACL injury. That really sucks for him. Falcons need a guy him teamed with a guy that's at least 330 pounds and a lot of our defensive issues will be solved.

Too bad this wont get him out of Cinci.

Falcons just need to develop their own Geno Atkins. Then pair him with a guy that's at least 330 pounds and boom.

If we drafted Geno instead of Peters in 2010 he wouldn't be close to the player he is now. This coaching staff can't develop players other than the ones who are already naturally good.

Notice how rookies are our best players for the most part....

The more time with this staff, the worse you get

Yep. Our coaching staff can't develop players.

You say 330 pounds. But Peters does a great job at the 1-tech at 305.

He's doing a pretty good job there but it's clearly not what he's best suited for. I'd like them to re-sign Peters and put him back at the 3-tech and then get someone suited to play NT.

Peters is doing good job but he would be even better playing the 3-tech and having a guy like B.J. Raji in there.

Peters is better suited at 3-tech and he would be a beast along side a big nasty NT!

None of you 3 understand his role or his skill set. Peters takes a double team on over 70% of the plays. He's not a good player as a 3-tech. He's not a ridiculous pass rusher. He's not the disruptive guy that Babineaux is. He's a great 1-tech. But the man just isn't a 3-tech. Y'all just see his size and think he's a 3. But that's not the case.

Also, both DT's have been playing very well this year. The issue isn't the DT's. The issue with the defense is the DE's and lack of pass rush from hte edge. You likely have to replace Babs and Jerry this offseason so bringing back Vance Walker makes sense, but just bringing in a guy due to him being 330 is stupid. And that;'s what you'd be doing with Raji.

After some review of FA options, albeit limited, I would strongly support signing Linval Joseph as a DT.

My Opinion: He can play either DT in the 4-3 and would be a pretty good NT in a 3-4 as the second option and/or on passing downs.

There is no consistent pressure up the middle with our DT's, period! There have been flashes but nothing consistent or dominating at times during any games. Most QBs in this league don't like pressure right up the middle. Peters is a good player however he's not dominating the line of scrimmage. You want guys that can plug the middle first to allow your guys on the edge to get up the field to contain or sack the QB.
