JiveAF Posted October 16, 2015 Share Posted October 16, 2015 Look guys, we are 5-1. I know that no one wanted to lose against New Orleans but it's happened so all we can do is be positive. Quinn is a rookie coach, we have all different kinds of coordinators who weren't here last year. We have multiple new starters. New plan. Etc. it wasn't really realistic to think we are winning the SB in Quinn's first season. I truly thought from the beginning that Quinn in his second or third season would get us over the hump. But we are looking at possible playoffs right now and that isn't a bad thing because anything can happen. There are so many good free agents that we could possibly get. I think our biggest problems are line backers, pass rush, maybe TE? Reliable WR2. Brandon Marshall (LB), KJ Wright, Bruce Irvin, Nigel Bradham. Are all outside linebackers who can actually COVER the pass. I'm saying some of the best ones that's been FA in recent years. ILB you got Danny Trevathan, Zach Brown, Rolando McClain. Etc. Those are just linebackers that can cover. Pass rushing wise you have Aldon Smith, Von Miller, and more. Of course franchise tag will come into play for some of these guys but you can hope. Then there are some DEs that can help because we do need a pass rush WITHOUT having to rotate an entire new line like we've had to do. I think JPP is a nice run defender who can rush the passer as well, Muhammed Wilkerson, etc. Tight end wise, there are quite a few. Antonio Gates, Gresham, Fleener, D Allen etc. I honestly think Quinn will improve the team CONSISTENTLY. I don't think the 5-0 start was a fluke. I just think that New Orleans played their hearts out because they are desperate. I don't think Atlanta executed the way they're capable of. I mean guys, if Coleman doesn't fumble, that's 3 or 7 points right there; the blocked punt was another 7 that could've been gone because our defense actually stopped No quite a bit. I honestly believe we make the playoffs this season and surprise some people when we beat a New York Giants, or Arizona team. But to think super bowl idk. But I DO BELIEVE we will get there with Quinn. Just not sure it will be this year. We lost to teams last year and years before who were worse than who we have beaten this season. So the schedule talk is a lot of dumb stuff. We have nice pieces. Ryan is borderline elite. Freeman is becoming a beast. Our run blocking is almost amazing. Julio is Julio. Trufant doesn't get tested and we have really good run d. I think Quinn creates something special here in the upcoming seasons. If he gets us some linebackers who can cover that underneath stuff, we are deadly. Also, Julio was hurt. I think this extra healing time does wonders. A healthy Julio with the luxury f a play action, forget about it. We will be fine guys!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
