Falcons 2nd Half: Record Breaking Pace

In the first 9 games we played 6 playoff teams, in the last 7 we played 2 playoff teams. Did we play better in the 2nd half of the season or was the schedule just much softer? Just like the end of 2018.

Road wins over the Saints and 49ers matters.

Nope.  OL still sucked.

Guess you missed this post.

Yep:

1 allowed vs that Carolina pass rush...34 attempts

2 allowed vs the 49ers; when everyone thought we’d be dominated...39 attempts 

1 allowed vs Jags...45 attempts (the Shanny playbook game)

12 vs Bucs and 9 in game 2 vs NO...that’s 21 of the 48 sacks on Matt in just 3 games...nearly 44%.

That’s 27 sacks in 12 other games...or 2.25 per game. (*Played only a half vs Rams...injury)

It’s an improvement, but 2.5 sacks per game adds up to 40 on the year which isn’t good.  And still allowed 9 QB hits per game which is terrible

Those go down further if you have a run game. Naturally. Perhaps in a similar way if you had a modern NFL OC! :ninja: OL coach good for another -10 sacks + a run game?! :wiggle::lol:

Only we beat those playoff teams and both were top seed at the time or tied for it; one is the 1 seed and the other would’ve been the 2 seed had we not beaten them.

So, hardly going 0-5 and then beating 3 teams under .500

How EXACTLY is that the same as going 6-2; with the aforementioned wins?
