I think I would rather have Jags cast-offs over Raiders cast-offs.... If only by a little bit cool.png

Seriously, what is Blank doing? He talks ish about wanting to get a superbowl to Atlanta and he wants to fill that shiny new stadium that he paid a pound of flesh for, yet he hires castoffs from the bottom barrel teams of the NFL.

Neibel has NO Business in the NFL and that F'n Jeff Fish was not much better.

Not unless you want to place all our second half woes on Smitty.

I chit you not.

This team is the worst insult to the Falcons Fans EVER.

All Coaches and Management needs to be cleared out.

It is a vile and putrid den of rodentia.

In the 53 years that I have followed the NFL,, this is it, this is the Dregs of the game.

Look around the league. Every team suffers injuries. It's a violent, high impact sport. Even some of the best athletes suffer season ending injuries. Feel free to use the S&C coach as a scapegoat, but it's not. It's chance more than anything.

We have no conditioning. The o line falls apart in the second half because they're worn out

2013 Pre Season stretch.

Lamar Holmes is so out of shape he is puking at practice.

This is the NFL, every MF N Richard on the team has to be 100% ready to go

on any and every snap.

Holmes was not and that is on Neibel and Smitty!

Jeff Fish did a lot of MMA type fast twitch stuff that strengthens connective tissues. They did a segment on TV with Jay Glazer about his innovative techniques a few years ago. We were supposed to be agenda of our time and oth gems were starting to use his methods. Then. We fired him. Great move. We have been a Mash unit ever since. We were one of the least injured teams in the league during his finite.

Hold up hold up.

All the Raiders jokes aside, this guy was working in those falcon therapy facilities? The ones in like office complexes?

Ummmmmm. I can't imagine a good S and C coach would need that kind of job... No offense to anyone. But that just seems like hiring a doctor's assistant to perform your heart surgery.

Don't you think that's happened because of the injuries to the initial starters, then back ups? Just leaves the team real thin of players to rotate in and out during the course of a game. Edited by jayu70

I didn't mind Fish one bit. BUT....

S&C coaches likely play little role at injuries, and I don't know why people have a hard time understanding that. There is minimal variation at what these coaches do compared to one another. They have the guys lift, stretch, and run.

So when Antone Smith BREAKS A LEG, and Alford BREAKS A WRIST...there is obviously no connection between that at the S&C.

The people that do make the biggest difference are the guys/gals in recovery...in the sports medicine community...about their rehab scheduling/regiment, and their surgical techniques and diagnosing skills. But no one talks about that.

Don't you remember that the new CBA (2011?) changed-- off-season programs completely.

NOW players are responsible for their on Strength and Conditioning during the off season and Team activities and camp have been shortened a good bit.

Don't blame the coaches etc as much as the individual players themselves.. It's now their responsibility to keep themselves in shape.

It's not just the Falcons injuries are up all over the league

just look at the Monday night game(Pitt/Tenn) both teams had many of their normal starters out.
