Special Teams and Andre Roberts , CANNOT allow seattle to pin us inside the 10 like what happened yesterday constantly.  Ill be nervous honestly. hopefully keith armstrong is working on that. so many times yesterday we were placed inside the 10.

I’m honestly starting to think it’s coaching over the player on returns. The player has to follow instructions and we learned that with Douglas when he “broke a rule” or whatever they called it

 

Exactly

 

I've been saying this for a couple of weeks now.

 

It has become way too common with all of the returners the Falcons have had over the past decade just about under Keith Armstrong's tenure as ST coach.

Don't get me wrong, the D is playing pretty darned well right now, but...

If they don't let teams cross the 50, those teams aren't in a position to pin us inside the 10.

It's not ALL on the returner or ST coach (although they aren't necessarily helping matters)

 

Bosher can also be the blame for not punting as well as he has known to over most of his career. Opposing teams have had decent field position to start off with on many drives.

 

The Falcons defense is 7th overall in least total yards given up.

The Falcons even got luck on one punt where he let it hit and the Cowboys could have easily penned Atlanta on the 1 but the Cowboys guy didn't appear to have the awareness of where he was on the field and he let it get into the end zone.

 

and seattle will not make that mistake. starting at our 1 yard line with the o line we have and the d line they have is not  a recipe for success

I hear you brother. But this thing is simple. It’s not Roberts himself. It’s not Armstrong. It’s where the defense is making the stops. If they let a team get across the 50 and we stop them just out of FG range them it’s gonna be a pin punt to the corner of the end zone guaranteed. So first and foremost the defense has to try and keep Seattle on THEIR side of the 50.

 

We started in bad field position a lot last year as well BUT the offense turned those into long sustained scoring drives a lot of times. This is nothing new. Y’all hated weems when he got pinned. Hester was done when they pinned him. There’s punters that can put spin on a punt like a pool shark on a cue ball. The one time the defense made a stop before the 50 he returned the punt for a TD but it got called back for a block in the back. ALL his good returns have been called back because of a penalty so i mean what can we do?

 

A punt team is gonna do 1 of two things. Cover or block and if they’re in cover they’re gonna get downfield while the punter punts a very high kick. So at the end of the day call the defense out. Stop Seattle on THEIR side of the 50. Cause as deadly as our offense is EVERYBODY wants us coming off the 1 yard line.

agrreed, cant argue with that one. it starts with defense.stopping them on their side of the field will result in better starting field position. Off topic question. Does Russell worry you ??

It's Roberts.  Special Teams Overall isn't bad.  I've been pointing it out all season.  It's not like we have another Hester.  Roberts only has one return for a TD in his career.

Meh. Not so much without a running game. That’s how we beat them. If we stop their running attack and make them 1 dimensional I think we handle them. Our defense is much improved even since the last time we last played them. It’ll still be tough but i think we take them. Especially if we’re efficient and don’t turn the ball over. I think I heard somewhere Brown might be out. If so hopefully Clay can take advantage of another backup.

He had 2 punt returns last year for td’s  Had one against the jets that got called back. It ain’t Roberts.

Several others have already touched on it in good detail. Whether you want to believe them or not is up to you but its not just Roberts.
