Hey, the Falcons got beat by a better team; you can't take anything away from Minnesota.  Every step of the way they were superior. 

But yeah, the way the offense played today, they probably would've lost to any other team in the league.   The Browns probably would've walked out of there with a win even.

It would be nice too when faced with a third down you draw up a play that actually has a chance of getting to the sticks. 

Or better yet that was already beyond the sticks as in all your receivers going past the first down marker.

Missing 2 if our best CBs. Keenum was perfect in 2nd half. That 8 minute drive to kill the 3rd quarter was rough to watch. 1st down after 1st after 1st. That said....defense gave up 14. Our offense needed to match that to win today. We played Minnesota's game

We convert 3 drowns running the ball that were called back on questionable call on different drives .refs are the MVP of the Vikings 

Thank you. Somebody saw the same thing. This team has been getting jobbed since Feb.

The difference in the way holding penalties was called made this game look like Vegas got to the refs. Everything close was called against the Falcons (Garland put a perfect pancake block on a DB that got called for holding as well) while the Vikings were in full bearhug mode on the oline all day. Frustrating to see that in our house.

BS on the last paragraph.

Or better yet don’t f up 1st and 2nd down so you’re looking at 3rd and short instead of 3rd and long.

That approach seemed to work well for the Vikings.

In madden I have my guys run smart routes where they extend their routes to get first downs but more importantly I make sure I make throws that reach at least to the first down marker, maybe Matt and company should play more video games to help understand how 3rd down works again.

We need to beef up the Oline

It’s not the OL. It’s something not clicking with Sarks scheme and the players. Matt, Julio and even free have played well with shoddier lines.

for example the toss sweep obviously doesn’t work for eith back. Free suddenly has trouble going up the gut. Julio has weirdly non-consistent games. Matt has two less than 200 yd games and the season isn’t over after years of consistentency.

nah, man, it’s a scheme thing. Not sure exactly what’s not clicking but something is off

1st FG Drive - Holding on Garland that was complete BS. Since when is a pancake block a hold? Would have been 2nd and 4 at the 18 yardline. Drive killer.

2nd FG Drive - Hooper gets a false start in the redzone on 2nd down making it 2nd and 15. Drive Killer.

3rd FG Drive - Ryan underthrows Sanu when hes wide open on 3rd down. Would have been 1st down inside the redzone. Drive Killer.

4th FG Drive (Missed) - Ryan overthrows Julio when hes wide open on 2nd down. Would have been 1st down inside the redzone. Drive Killer.

And to top it off...Deep in our own territory early in game, us up 3-0, Sanu drops a pass on 3rd down right in his hands. Have to punt and Vikings start the drive at midfield. TD.

Another game where Penalties, drops and bad throws absolutely killed us. Defense played OUTSTANDING considering we did not have Trufant or Poole. Anytime you hold someone to 14 points you SHOULD win. Our offense could not get out of its own way.

It drives me up the wall, that these players and coaches feel that the best play to get a first, is to run a route 2-4 yards short. 

 

When they watch film, do they not see how this is counter productive?
