etherdome Posted January 20, 2020 Share Posted January 20, 2020 Coaching matters more than any other factor. I know that a lot of people are currently in love with the idea of acquiring a big back like Henry. I can understand that. When you see Henry bulldoze over defenders, you can't help but to want the same for our team. The problem is that you can't depend on one man to physically dominate in the NFL. In a matter of a few quick seasons, Henry will be past his prime and well on his way to his first joint replacement. But that is another topic. What I am astounded about yesterday's NFC conference game was one simple stat. The 49'ers compiled 186 yards, one the ground, PRIOR TO CONTACT. That, my friends, comes from two things, 1. Great scheming.......the defense simply did not know where the ball was going to go. 2. Great blocking. We have neither. So, we have no shot at establishing a good, consistent rush offense. Koetter, Quinn and whoever is teaching our OL's how to block, are not smart enough to develop a good, reliable rush offense. We are limited by our coaches. So, we can mock all the talent in the world, as long as this team is headed by dullards, we will get excuses and slogans.....oh, and really expensive hood ornaments. Am I bitter? In a word, yes. I am getting old and have seen way too many opportunities missed by the likes of Bennett, Campbell, Glanville, Mora and especially Quinn. 186 yards prior to contact........nothing like that will ever be a Falcon stat. quickzero, Rings, ATL Fan in the DMV and 18 others 21 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
