Falcons Tied for Fewest Sacks in NFL

So sad and pathetic coming from a defensive mastermind in his 5th year as head coach. Haven't had a sack in a month. And we are paying Beasley 13 million dollars :rolleyes:

 

FLOWERY BRANCH — 
The Falcons have not recorded a sack since the 9:50 mark of the third quarter against the Colts on Sept. 22. Defensive ends Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley sacked Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett on second-and-13 from the Colts’ 22 that day. In subsequent games against mobile quarterbacks, the Falcons failed to sack Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota, Houston’s Deshaun Watson and Arizona’s Kyler Murray. Overall, it’s been 242 defensive snaps since the Falcons recorded a sack. The Colts ran 21 more plays after the Beasley-McKinley sack. There were 69 defensive snaps in the Arizona game, 73 against Houston and 79 against Tennessee. The Falcons have just five sacks, tied with Miami for the lowest total in the NFL.

The fact the Falcons are next to the Dolphins, who are clearly trying to tank,  in several defensive statistics Is disturbing.

But the Falcons got them beat in total points allowed.

Also the Falcons have a two separate games where the other team only had to punt once.  Phins have one.

Falcons May have fewer turnovers as well...

So let's just keep sending three or four and dropping everyone else. Seems like a strategy to remedy this issue. <_<

There was a play in the Texans game where 6 guys lined up on the LOS.

At the snap 3 from the middle dropped into coverage.  Vic, Takk, and maybe Grady

too lazy to research this, BUT didnt we have a coinflip with Miami or something the year we drafted Ryan, or was it a different team. Perhaps we are headed in that direction again!

Say what you will about the pass rush and defense but you can't deny we call a mean heads or tails. I'd really like to see more focus put on that for the remainder of the season. Perhaps some drills, loud music, navy seals, catch phrases, the whole works would be great.

Should have known the season was going to go down the drain when Quinn decided to give Beasley 12.5 mil and this guy doesn't even show up for mini camp. Just tank for Chase Young already. Oh and Takk should be a backup next year if still on the team.

I said the Same Takk as depth is fine Takk as a lead dawgg no way
