FalconFanSince1970 Posted April 3, 2015 Share Posted April 3, 2015 This is not a media post. It is not click bait. This is real talk. If you don't wanna talk, please click the Talk About The Falcons button now. Thanks in advance. I keep hearing we can plug in any running back and run over most NFL teams. I've also heard any Dimi Olineman will excel in the shiny new Shanny ZBS system. Any Olineman folks. Puddin, King Konz, Sackmaker, you name it. Just with the push of One ZBS Button. Can't wait. I've seen every ZBS system ever run in the National Football League. All of em. Even the Falcon ZBS systems. Not a fan, but will gladly ride one to a Lombardi. Much rather have a power running game though. We had one from 2008-2010, but abandoned it for explosives. Should have stayed the course. Would have been way ahead of the current curve. Most teams are trying to move back in that direction now. Even the Aints. We have fallen behind. And now, how bout a quick look at Kyle Shanahan's vaunted ZBS rush rankings as an offensive coordinator in his last seven seasons: 2008 - HOU - 13th total rush yards - 12th rush yards per carry 2009 - HOU - 30th total rush yards - 30th rush yards per carry 2010 - WAS - 30th total rush yards - 16th rush yards per carry 2011 - WAS - 25th total rush yards - 25th rush yards per carry 2012 - WAS - 1st total rush yards - 2nd rush yards per carry 2013 - WAS - 5th total rush yards - 3rd rush yards per carry 2014 - CLE - 17th total rush yards - 28th rush yards per carry Notice his only two good rushing years were when RG3 averaged 650 yards in 2012 and 2013. Matt Ryan will not rush for 650 yards folks. Trust me. And now that we've announced to the league we're running a ZBS, defenses will be ready. Face it folks. Kyle aint his daddy. He better be ready to handle a Dimi squadron. I really hope Dimi can find a way to give him the Gurley Man and a platform he can use to carve out his own name.
