You have to wonder how we are 0-2 when you look at our overall offensive numbers  compared to our opponents:

  • # of Drives: Us 24, Them 24
  • Scoring %: Us 54.2%, Them 54.2%
  • Turnover %: Us 8%, Them 12%

So we are winning the turnover margin, scoring on a per drive basis the exact same as our opponent yet are somehow -14 where it matters, on the scoreboard

The rub is in the red zone.  Our offense is scoring TD’s 62.5% of time they reach the RZ while our opponents are at 90%.  Defense needs to grow a pair when they are in the red area.  
 

Davison & Sheffield can’t get here fast enough

Yep, the defense is atrocious. The turnover numbers are boosted by DAL having fumblitis for a half a game, and I am not expecting that to keep up.

never would have thought Morris/Ulbrich would have been a much bigger problem than Koetter.

It wasn't fumblitis those balls were knocked out by the defense actually playing. Foye was a monster. Give him credit. He earned it.

You are right. I guess I should have said I don’t expect it to continue, and that 1/2 is skewing the stats. Thanks for pointing it out!

Imagine this team if we had an average offense with its same defense over the past 12 years, now imagine this team with its same offense but with even a slightly above average to good (not great) defense.....why is a good defense so hard to come by in Atlanta??? 😡😡🤬

Well, you need to start with a good defensive coach.  We have not had one here since Zimmer.

Was looking forward to end of game stat line before injury.  God knows this team needs a playmaker.

Wonder if he got performance enhancing tested this week.

Using that “Peanut Punch” / “Seattle Punch” to its fullest. I have yet to see an official throw a flag for that, supposed to be illegal per the rule book
