An Open Letter to Sark, Ryan, and Quinn


Peyton

Recommended Posts

Dear Dudes,

The offense is missing something.  I had some trouble putting my finger on it, but then I came across this ground breaking new play and it occurred to me that it might be the answer to about half of the team's offensive struggles.

Since nothing else seems to be working in short yardage situations, maybe coach the guys up on this one and just see what happens.

As always, thanks so much for your time and your consideration.

Peyton

I'm sure QB sneaks are legal in college, so I'm still baffled as to why Sark won't run it in the pros. Numerous times this year Ryan could have just reached over and got an easy first. Heck that would have been fat more effective than that ridiculous jet sweep on the 6" line.

Ryan aint got enough asz to make that play

Off Tackle is the call in that situation, unless you are Mike Mularkey, or Sark.

Yet somehow scrawny azz Brady is the greatest QB sneaker of all time.

Watching the Falcons getting to 2nd and 1 on two consecutive possessions and go 3 and out on both at the start of the second half was....I don't have the word for it.

have you see ryan qb sneak before?  he get's no push.  he stands up straight, turns around, and pushes backwards with his legs like if you were pushing a rock up a hill.

ryan does not do the brady 2 yard dive sneak

that's why we don't do it.

Not with Ryan. I don't know if you been paying attention for the last decade, but when Ryan runs with the football, he folds up like a wet piece of toilet paper. Bad things happen . . .  for the Falcons.

He could maybe practice doing it better.  Just a thought.

Scrawny azz Brady has always had an above above average line built for passing.

Not for running. When is the last time you ever see Ryan run a successful QB sneak?

What does that have to do with my post?    

As for the answer to your question - they don't often run it - but he's been pretty successful at it - 23 out of 26 times.

Ok.  The Falcons supposedly have one of the very best Centers in all of football though, right?

They would get right through the right side.   Honestly - I am with you in that they should try it - but I don't think THEY trust the line.

23 out of 26 times.  That's fascinating.

I wonder if it would have been worth a try on two consecutive drives yesterday where Atlanta had 2nd and 1 and went 3 and out.

There is something they don't trust for sure.

The right side of the line is a huge weakness this year.    Look - Ryan got pounded last year - but the mindset of this team was different - and they overcame any weakness and the line actually became a strength because of health and continuity - until the Super Bowl - and the line broke down bad in the second half.    Injuries mostly - but they should have paid more attention and built in the line.   Philly did it, Dallas did it and KC did it.   **** - the Saints have done it the past few years - and look at them this year.

Go look up the videos then.  I can tell you my favorite was against the Saints - he freakin' pushed them into a first down in that game.   Several years ago - but I was at the game (in New Orleans) and I couldn't believe it - he was absolutely determined to get that first down - and he did.

Quarterback sneaks are all well and good, particularly if it is 4th an inches.  But if your O-line and RBs are called upon to get one yard and they're not capable of doing it more times than not, then you have major problems that quarterback sneaks won't solve.
