The O.D.B Posted November 17, 2014 Share Posted November 17, 2014 Compressing the Offense. While watching a bit of the Cardnials game yesterday (I live in AZ) I heard the commentators make a comment about what trust the coaches have in Stanton, Allowing him to pass on 3rd and X against the best defense in the NFL.After hearing this I reflected on their injuries and season in general and what I noticied in retrospect was the coaches don't change the scheme to cover up their player losses, they go to a "True" next man up mentality. They put the next guy in and let him play. Meanwhile, Our Falcons appear to dail things back to account for our injuries. We appear to run short passes or runs which allow the defense to compress the windows making it insanley hard for Matt to get the ball to someone. I know it's a crazy thought but, maybe we need to trust our players, open things up and see what happens. Excuses: *Matt won't have time to throw a long route - Last time I checked he has more time that ARod and a few others who are getting the job done. *Our talent level is to low for this - We are not the most banged up team in the NFL. Teams like Philly and NE have suffered more losses on the Oline but, they didn't change their game. It only takes a few plays over the heads of defenders before other D-Coaches will make adjustments. If it doesn't work, well, we'll look just like we do now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
