Don't blame Coaches for this one

It wasn't pretty and not every play call was on point but we had plays that would've won the game. They were also drawn up at the right time and guys wide open. Drops, bad throws and poor blocking and general lack of execution lost this one. I'm not saying Sark should stay after that season (jury still out on that one), Today he had decent calls that put our guys in position to win and they didn't execute.

im still dreading the possibility you guys get kubiak while we stay and rot with Shula.

I don't see us getting kubiak. Quinn seems like he's oblivious to what his boy Sark has done to this offense. Stubbornness is the one thing that gets HC's fired the most. Too stubborn to see their mistakes.

This game was definitely lost because of poor execution on both sides of the ball.

Dropped passes, overthrowing wide open receivers, stupid INT, missed tackles, losing contain on a consistent basis.......coaching can only put players in a position to succeed. After that point its on the players to make things happen.

Agree that Quinn is a bit stubborn. The good ones tend to be. Hopefully he can come around. Again idont think you can out the game on Sark today at all. The team didn't execute. Were there some calls I didn't like? Sure but I didn't like some calls from calls Kyle made that I didn't like in a game too. Fact of the matter is that Sark put our guys in position to post over 30 pts today but the players didn't execute it.

3rd and literally less than 1 foot and you throw 20 yards downfield? Ryan could have easily bent over and got the first down. That was absolutely awful. 

To me it seems like their is still no identity. I understand gameplans change but everyone just looked discombobulated out there today

3/1 4/1 and you can’t gain 3 feet? The o line couldn’t open a single hole for our rbs.. they forced sarks hand. How many times did we run for 0-1 yards on 1/2nd down?

Coleman ran 5 times for 5 yards with a long of 2...

free ran for 42 but had a long of 20 which means he averaged 2ypc on his 10 other runs.. you can’t keep running the ball if you can’t be counted on to get 1 yard 

the oline play was terrible

Definitely not on Sark. Yes 4 runs on 1st and 5 or throw deep on 3rd and inches was bad, but he drew plenty of plays enough to win the game with a comfortable margin. His play calling doesn't get into a rythm but it's difficult to get into rythm when players have mental mistakes or poor execution every other play.

These losses are squarely on Quinn and only on him. As the HC it's his responsibility to make sure the team has discipline, confidence, and mental focus. Right now the team has none of the three and that's why they keep losing games they should win.

This is halfway true but those calls on 3rd and 1 and 4th and one has to belong to the coaches and I blame the Falcon organization too we should have gotten more competition at Right Guard and bought in another receiving TE IF WE TRULY wanted to win the SB. We were too overconfident even after history showed how hard it was to get back to the SB. We were too silent in D'S, Trades and had a weak draft. We should not have been so bias to the TD and DQ  Draft picks and Coaches DQ is cool with. But sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward so for now we'll just embrace the suck

The playcalls were correct, everyone would have lost their **** if we hadnt tried running with our “super duo of backs” the offensive line failed in the run game big time yesterday. Big dlines eat our lunch in the trenches

I mostly blame a handful of players: Schweitzer, Julio, Hooper, and Matt Ryan, in that order.  Every possession is important in an NFL game, and all four of these guys caused us to either punt or turn the ball over.

Schweitzer is just not very good.  Too many plays are blowing up because he is not blocking his man effectively.  And this week he chipped in with holding and false start penalties.

Julio dropped a sure TD that would've totally swung the momentum of the game down the stretch.  It's really the circumstance.  We had to have that catch.  It is 4th and 7, 4th quarter, division rival.  He was wide open for a TD.  This kind of sums of why we're .500 right now.  He also had another drop earlier in the game that would've been a big first down.  

Hooper has just not been able to take that next step.  He's shown flashes, but he is not making the routine plays and those drops are turning into punts and ints.  Not to mention he got penalized a few times also.

Matt had a decent game other than the INT and the overthrow the first time Julio got open.  But no QB is going to be perfect and he did make plenty of other throws.  I can think of a ball that bounced off of Hooper's face on third down, and the beauty to Julio that got dropped.  He also did make some awesome throws with guys all over him.  Schweitzer needs to do better and Matt will do better, IMO.

These were the plays we made last year and we aren't making this year.  It's really the difference.  I think if a couple guys can just play better we can start winning more games.

Agree.  When lining-up on offense we look like we never had a practice. Everyone looking to MR to see where they are suppose to be.  Ton of pre-snap confusion 

But to the OP.

It is being out-coached when the panthers challenge a 4th and 1 spot.  Knowing they are using it as a semi-time out to get a 4th down play in or to get the spot overruled.  And then we are surprised they are going to go for it and have to use one of OUR timeouts to get the right personnel on the field.  Our coaching staff looked like idiots there.

Coaching not having the team prepared wkk in and week out and taking a high powered offense and make it a laughing stock.

Don't tell me I can't blame coaching when I see the offense disappear for 2.5 quarters and making dumbass play call after play call. We had a real opportunity to go up big on Carolina after Jonathan Stewart's 2nd fumble, but we didn't capitalize and our offense tanked until late in the 4th quarter.

That 3rd and inches play action pass attempt to Hooper was about the most idiotic play call I've ever seen, but yet I can't put any of the blame on coaching? Yeah ok.

Do you know what Carolina fans and media are telling themselves this morning? They are saying that they have the best defense in the league. Are you f'ing kidding me! This is what happens when you let teams win games they should've otherwise lost. They start saying dumb shyte!

The line was terrible. They couldn't get a push. I don't blame the coaches for not trusting the line to get another yard.
