Falconsfan567 Posted September 15, 2015 Share Posted September 15, 2015 Here's an objective, and "sky is not falling" thread about the defense.The defense was great in the 1st half when the Eagles didn't do a lot of up tempo stuff. When most of their plays were straight at you plays. That's very encouraging because the Eagles are the only team in the NFL (maybe the Titans now that they have Mariota) that runs a lot of that high speed tempo crap.Yes the defense struggled in the second half when nearly every play the Eagles ran was a speed sweep or a screen or a 5 yard pass. We saw at the end of the game when the Eagles were forced to go back to a traditional offense the defense stopped them again and sealed the game.Anyone that has watched the Falcons for years has to be very encouraged by the way the defense played tonight.
