Falcons Special Teams 2014


Recommended Posts

Wow have we improved our Special Teams, better than I've seen them in years. Our FG and Punt coverage units were already exceptional, but now our coverage units look stronger and our return team is PHENOMENAL with Hester. Hester frequently gets us the 30 yard line on kickoffs, and punt returns.......well, I think its safe to say there is some improvement there as well :)

With Jake Mathews and JJ back, Matt Ryan playing out of his mind, a great group of diverse RBs, a STs unit dramatically improved, all we have to do is hope the defense continues to improve as it continues to gel. If we can just get the defense to be average overall, perhaps while giving up a lot of yards between the hashes but be in the top half of league in points allowed, this team can beat anyone on any day and that includes in the playoffs.

The defense made far less mistakes yesterday, communication improved dramatically, and they were playing more cohesively. We've got 10 days now to clean up some more things which is going to help. The defense must continue to improve as season goes on and prove it can get the better NFL offenses off the field more.
