This is going to be a tough game.

Defense: Falcons blitz a lot sending five rushers and have had great success with it. When they rush four they have very little success. Blitz package gave fits to Bridgewater, Lock and Cousins. It worked well against Stafford but for some reason they didn’t blitz much that game. They will bring the heavy blitz on us. They are susceptible to the draw and misdirection because of their style. TEs have also hurt them. Running the ball is a huge key to this game.

Offense: Falcons have largely fixed their offensive line problems. Sacks have mostly been coverage sacks with few breakdowns. The tackles can be beat one on one with speed but I’ve only seen that maybe once a game. To beat their line it’s going to require our guys winning single matchups or blitzing the A gap which has given the Falcons some trouble. I’m concerned about the Falcons passing game which is tearing teams up. They are fast and playing on the fast track of the dome. Turnovers from Ryan are rare and he is playing at a high level.

Game plan should be run the ball and shorten the game. Use misdirection and screens. Power running game and play action. Defense don’t give up the big play and win with the front four with maybe a blitzing LB up the middle.

ST needs to bring it.

Close game and I don’t think we cover the spread but I think we can win. I see why CSP is going with Taysom Hill. Division game it’s 50/50 coin toss.

If Taysom sees more than four rushers, he gone. All routes are off, everyone turn and block. 10 yards at least. Bring it, Fail-cons...

I’m shocked because the Saints dominated the Falcons. Destroyed their offensive line and cuffed the WRs. This defense is championship caliber.
