Shanahan's The Man!!!

Surely, everyone can see that!  Think about it; what are the main differences for the FALCONS from the 2016 season & SB (2017) compared to now?

After Shanahan's departure, our FALCONS leaders let go, speedsters Gabriel, Tevin Coleman and others that fit the system so well.  I'm sure you guys out there can put in more missing pieces.

Why cant Atlanta have a good defense? We definitely can sign ornaments for the offense 

Coaching and very vanilla scheme

Dropping Vic and Takk into coverage rushing 3. I don’t know the last time I seen an all out blitz from this defense

SanFran has a good defense though. Huge difference than when in Atlanta

Because they are better coached on defense. They were running cover 3 and were worse than us in talent not too long ago. Fire Quinn and start over.

Cause that was Dan Quinn’s responsibility, not Shanahan’s obviously. Dan Quinn’s defenses have been mediocre his entire 5 years here. Even Mike Smith’s defenses were better in his best years compared to Quinn’s best years.

2016 Atlanta

24th Total D, 27th scoring gave up 25.4 a game

 

2019 San Fran

2nd Total D, 4th scoring giving up 14.3 a game

A Shanahan offense combined with a top 4 scoring defense is pretty scary bro. If the 49ers stay healthy with the rest of their schedule they are Super Bowl bound. The 49ers at Saints game in the regular season might determine the seeding. Wouldn’t want to root for any of those teams for MULTIPLE reasons on both sides.

They run a very similar defense to what Quinn runs schematically. 49ers have a culture that lends itself to good defense. Falcons have literally never had that. Complacency problem. Nothing will change unless the culture does first, and that'll take time. Time I don't think AB is willing to give.

Our 2016 offense with a Top 4 defense. Offense could have an off day and only put up 15-18 and win. When was the last time we felt we could win a game scoring only 12-15pts? This year we have to score 25+ and even that isnt enough most games

The 2012 Falcons beat the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in front of the GA Dome 19-13. The 2015 Falcons won an ugly game in Tennessee 10-7 when Mettenberger started, and had Mariotta started we would have lost. Another than those 2 games, I can’t recall a game in the Matt Ryan era when we won scoring less than 20 points. The 2012 defense was the last good defense to this day with a healthy Abraham and Grimes. 2017 defense was not as good as the stats say IMO.

Yeah 2017 had 19pts per on defense. But yes Ryan has never had a legit defense. **** even a Top 8-10 would suffice

The same 2017 defense who got beat by Tyrod Taylor and Jay Cutler back to back weeks. This defense was also bottom in the league in yards per play, and one of the worst in the league in forcing turnovers. One big factor that helped the 2012 defense was forcing a lot of turnovers. This is the 3rd year in a row a Dan Quinn defense can’t force turnovers more consistently.

The defense in 2012 was actually really good until Abe got injured and then they were worthless during the playoffs. 

If Brent Grimes was healthy from the start of the season and John Abraham never gets injured, that team would have won it all no doubt. That team could have easily gone 15-1 too.

People forget that our offense had plenty of duds and lulls that season but our defense always stept up (in regular season) to help us pull out the Ws. Specifically against Denver and New Orleans, our offense was putrid but we still manhandled them.
