RunningThePiszOuttaTheBall Posted August 22, 2015 Share Posted August 22, 2015 (edited) Wow, the Falcons looked pretty good tonight. Here are some thoughts and observations (I stopped at the point the Jets put in their 2nd string QB). 1. Adrian Clayborn!!! He is a force of nature. Got a sack by himself, knocked down a pass, caused a hold. Dominant. 2. Beasley! The Jets defender is still frozen on the field right now from that spin move. And he knocked down a pass as well. 3. Babs!!! Wreaking havoc. 4. Our special teams look fantastic. Hester is dynamite - we knew that. Bosher went crazy with the 60+ yarders. Our coverage looks great too. Allen Bradford was excellent on special teams (though he struggled on defense). 5. O line worries -- we saw some good plays from them. But: Chris Chester had a terrible play on Yates first play -- he singlehandedly caused the sack just as much as if he would have turned around and sacked Yates himself. Then, Stone gave up the safety singlehandedly with a horrible play. And our 2nd string O line was so awful that we really have no idea whether Yates or Renfree are any good or not. 6. Alford had a bad game. Gave up a penalty that converted a 3rd down for them, and didn't do much else. 7. Hardy does not appear to be living up to the hype we've been hearing about him. He was mostly a non-factor and had another drop. In a nutshell: * The defense looks greatly improved, especially the line * The O line is cause for serious concern * Special teams look like a major strength I sure hope the O line can pull it together. I think it's time for Evan Mathis or *something*. Edited August 22, 2015 by DriveHomeSafelyAtlantaWins Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
