Is This Why We Don't Blitz?

Other teams still blitz. Successfully.

The reason we don't blitz is that our rookie head coach is too arrogant, to inflexible, too busy admiring his schemes on paper to see that they are not working here.

They ARE working. Winston only threw for 177 yards. This is the second week in a row we kept a qb under 200 yards. The problem was turnovers. That simple.

True, but keep in mind we are talking about a rookie QB with 1 legitimate receiving threat who he overthrew/underthrew a lot and also drew like 2-3 pass interference calls and probably should have had another towards the end of the game on Adams.

I'll agree that it worked for the most part today. We gave them the rock 4 extra times and were still in the game, but it didn't work when we needed it at the end. Evans could/should have had a bigger day.

It did t work because our top 2 corners went out of the game. Had they stayed in I doubt they drive the field like that. Him being a rookie has nothing to do with it. He's had 300 yard games this year. Winston was hit and hurried often today. He literally completed 2 passes with a defender draping on him. The problem and only problem today was the turnovers. The defense did great to even give us a shot to be IN this game. Eliminate the turnover=falcons win.

Neither Mettenberger nor Winston were much perturbed by our anemic pass rush. One just sucks and the other is an inconsistent rookie QB missing his #1 WR, and whose #2 WR had a bad case of Hankerson's Disease.

Eliminate several decades of age and bbq = me banging Jennifer Lawrence.

What's done is done, and can't be "eliminated".

This is a weak, undisciplined, untalented team that got some lucky wins against putrid teams, most (if not ALL) of which were missing multiple starters.

Winston was sacked twice and hit numerous times. He literally completed 2 passes with a guy draped over him. He was constantly scrambling from pressure today.

Metenberger was also harassed. He was hit and hurried a good bit and also sacked. 3 sacks last 2 games.

Everybody is missing starters and you play who's on your schedule. The only problem we've had is shooting ourselves in the foot. None of the other stuff you're talking about even matters. No win was by luck. It happened the way it was supposed to happen. Denver made Rodgers look like a high school qb today. Oakland made the jets defense look bad. This theory that young players can't beat you is just ********. Matt Ryan was 11-5 his first year. Cam was good his first year. That's excuses trying to say "we got lucky". We WON those games. The 2 games we lost were multiple turnover games. That's it. Eliminate turnovers we win. Nothing else that happened even mattered. Tampa nor NO could stop us. We stop ourselves. I'm not worried about this 6-2 team in the least bit. Did the piss me off? Absolutely, but I also see what the problem was today and against NO. We def have talent. You're just mad. Sleep it off.

20 points of turnovers. THATS why we lost. I guess GB is no longer talented?? Rodgers was held to 77 yards. There's no way in H3ll Matt and the offense will be held to 77 yards.

Then g*******t go cheer for another team. If they allegedly suck so bad I don't know you want to affiliate yourself with them

Sheesh, give it a rest already. We lost yesterday, just like 12 other teams

Eliminate turnovers and we're scoring 35 points a game and everyone is still on our nuts.

We knew that it wasn't going to be an immediate fix here. The fact that we're in a good position to make the playoffs in year one is awesome. We're not as good as the top tier teams, yet. The defense has exceeded my expectations this year, the run game has exceeded my expectations. We just have to stop fumbling.

Or if the defense would have held up in OT we could have won as well. Granted, they did well to get us there (as i said already), but thats why the game is 4 quarters long or OT..

We dont blitz because that's pur scheme.

Look at Seattle, they dont blitz at all. They send 4 and rally to the ball.

When Quinn gets more players that fit the scheme, things will change.

Right now the defense is not playing badly at all. We will be a bbdb defense until we can get more playmakers.

Defense is NOT the problem....

I don't get why people believe the defense isn't A problem. Yes it may not be THE problem, but its certainly been a problem when you consider everything.

The past few games our offense has definitely screwed us over and the defense has played pretty well. Even though they didn't show up on that last drive in OT yesterday. But you have to take into consideration the lower tier QB's we are playing and the fact that we have the least amount of sacks in the entire NFL.

So i don't think the defense is bad by any means, but it can absolutely be improved and needs to be improved. I would have much rather had Winston throw for 300 yards during the game and then our defense come up big in OT. But yes, the offense has been our main issue the past few weeks.

Untalented? So, you're telling me that devonta, julio, and matt are not talented. The defense is doing enough to keep the Falcons in the game, that's more than we could've said last year.
