We actually have a pretty similar offense compared to 2012. Hooper ain’t the redzone threat TG was but Julio is more dominant, and Ridley ain’t no Roddy or sophomore Julio but who knows how much he’ll improve next year. Idk, could be a possibility if they wanted change but wanted to keep some level of continuity

10 TDs as a rookie though.  How far into Roddy was he when he got his 10th?  So, we can all agree prime Roddy was better than Rookie Ridley...but the gap isn't huge. If you go 4 deep at receiver, you could argue Julio, Sanu, Ridley, and Hooper is greater than Julio, Roddy, TG, and Douglas.  The biggest difference is at the RB positions.

Dirk Koetter is predictable.  Its all passing attack with him.  We won't have a run game and as a result, no PA passes.  That is what had our offense using creativity and being unpredictable with Shanahan.  Folks say Sark isn't creative and is predictable, but if switching to Koetters scheme will have us the that same hole as we will be one-dimensional with a Oline thats not so great.  

I don't want Koetter but something else pretty darned predictable is what Sark's Falcons will do on 2nd down if they throw an incomplete pass on 1st, and what Sark's Falcons are going to do when they go empty backfield on 3rd down.

You know what’s crazy? The Falcons ended up being two plays away from the playoffs. Score at the end in Philly and get a stop at the end against Cincinnati, and the Falcons are 9-7, in over the 8-8 Eagles.

That doesn’t even include the overtime loss to the Saints that could’ve swung on 1 play.  Parity in the NFL is real.

You could say that about 5+ teams every year. It’s not an indication of the falcons being any better than a team on the outside looking in.

I’d rather keep continuity with Sark than rehash DK.  Ryan just had one of the best seasons of his career.  If we can get the guards situated to help get the run game going the offense will be fine.

DK offense was better than our's this year though. Go look it up. He put up better stats with Fitz and Crablegs.

My son talked with Matt after the game and pointed out that Smitty got canned mid-season, one day after losing to the Falcons.  Then he noted that Matt had probably just driven the last nail into Dirk Koetter's coffin.  He asked, jokingly, how Matt could sleep at night with that knowledge.

Matt's reply - "It's not that hard."

Matt seems like a really chill guy.

But he also seems like one of those guys who  can just be cold hearted.

 

No puns intended

Awesome!

Who was promoted and had success? 

not what I said my man. You can't deny several have gone on the higher positions. I didn't say they were successful after moving on. Something in common with Brady maybe, coaches or players that move on from playing with them don't find any greener grass.
