Zero sacks, Zero QB Hits, 1 pass defended, and two 1st rd. draft picks with zero tackles. That's a stat line you can't even make up.

Yep. It's Beasley's fault for these other Falcons not doing well.

Even with a "Legion of Boom-er"?.

It seemed to me they were passing the ball when the Reed/Shelby were in there. It seemed like the defense couldn't get the right units out there.

We couldn't stop the run well enough to get them into obvious passing situations. Takk and Vic aren't going to see the stat sheet very often if they aren't taking down the QB. 

I'm just stating the facts.  That's a very strange looking stat line.  If neither one of your starting DEs record a tackle you've got some serious issues on defense that go much deeper than that.

And the Browns did a good job of limiting the exposure of their tackles. Short quick throws that took advantage of what the defense gave them.

The Browns had a fantastic game plan and they executed it well.

Short quick throws because the corners were giving them an 8 yd. cushion!!  Why not try something different??

It's definitely not good for the defense as a whole but there are reasons other than just their abilities and play that cause it

Could be worse, we could have taken Ereck Flowers

Vic is one of those combine freaks.  Dude was overhyped in college and never thought he was a top 10 pick.  Thought there were other DE's worth getting (2nd round later) while still getting Gurley.
