How are you feeling about the Falcons secondary going into 2021?

I swear, Dan Quinn had to be one of the most stubborn coaches ever.   He hardly ever blitzed.... asked his DBs to play this passive scheme which no defender ever wants to do.... his buddy approach made him look foolish.  'Brotherhood' indeed...

Rich McKay reportedly talked Blank out of firing Quinn after the 2019 season.  McKay also hired Bobby Petrino.   Seems to me McKay should perhaps exempt himself when it comes to coaching decisions.  The man isn't very good in that area.

 

Oliver was seen as a steal in the second when we nabbed him.  Gotta believe he benefits from a change in scheme.

Bad. The Falcons don't have a pass rush that can make up for it. Basically people are just hoping Pees can perform magic.

Awesome.  Look whenever the team signs or resigns a vet at a high price everyone complains that you can't win with spending too much money on one position. This group is cheap. The secondary

I think the secondary is going to be better than expected.   Pees likes to build his defenses from the backend to the front.

I was actually thinking Oliver was going to be our 1st pick.   So when Oliver was there in the 2nd, I just knew we were taking him, and of course we did.

One of the few times I have been able to predict a Falcons draft pick.... though I was also pulling for Grant.

Yeah I was done with him after 2018.

I still like Oliver.  I think he contributes this year in the slot.  Sheffield is the one I have concerns about.

I don't hold much confidence in it nor do I have any real high expectations either, there's still work to be done and this is one of the groups where more work will be done in time. Only so much you can do in one off season though. 

I like the folks we brought in.  Moreau will surprise many folks.  I'd like another vet CB heading into the season.  If not, In Pees I trust.
