So the Falcons snapped their no sacks streak, but their no int streak is still going...

It’s almost impossible to have so few turnovers over an 8 week period.  Simple probability would say there would be a fumble or some bad throws by opposing teams.  But no.  Want to get better, play the Falcons.  We should charge teams for the right to play us.  
 

Like a world class horse who earns millions being put out to stud.  It’s just the opposite for us.  We suck so bad teams can build much needed confidence playing just 60 minutes against this squad

There have been alot of fumbles...the Titans and Texans fumbled 7 times between them alone......we recovered 1.

Among our many many struggles .  we have had extraordinarily bad luck on defense

I'm not going to allow this...….Neasman recovered one in week 2

Ah, forgot about STs. But yeah those aren’t on our defense though. Our defense still doesn’t know how to fall on a football.

Half of our takeaways have been on special teams. The only game we have had a defensive takeaway is against the Eagles, and both were gifts.

Geez I didn't even realize the 2 fumbles recover was from special team.  So this defense had 1 game where they forced two turnover and that was week 2 against the Eagles?  How is that possible for a defense to go 7 out of 8 games without forcing any turnover?  I mean how do you expect to win any game playing like that?  The defense was never this bad even in 2013-2014 when they were filled with FA rookies.  Heck in 2013 even when they went 4-12 the Falcons still had 1 game against the Redskins where they forced 7 TO(1 of them was by special team so 6 by the defense)!  Maybe this defense might be able to get that many by the end of the season.  Sure that might sound sarcastic until you realize that mathematically the defense is on pace to get 4 TO this season.

I forgot about how long it has been since we intercepted a pass or recovered a fumble.  It is amazing how pathetic our defense is playing despite having a "Defensive" HC.  It seems like we have had the same defense year after year no matter how many scheme changes we go through, or personnel types we field(faster and smaller or bigger).  No matter what we do we always lose at the LOS, we can never hold coverage on receivers, we can never sack or even consistently pressure the QB.  This has been going on for 10+years, under both Smitty and now Quinn.  I am so tired of these soft, "bend but don't break defenses".
