This is a serious thread. Not trolling.

PFF has some very good insight into what we're facing Week 1.

Atlanta Falcons – Three Things of Note

1. Attack, Attack

There’s little doubt, from what’s been unveiled in both preseason games to date, the Falcons intend to discard their “conservative” tag with utmost haste. It was never actually said on the day I was in camp, but it felt as if they were almost embarrassed by the conservative offense installed by Mike Mularkey (the run, run, pass and repeat game plans, the lack of deep attempts and paucity of screens) and hankered for the much more aggressive philosophy employed by division rivals, the Saints.

On their first four drives the Falcons ran only four times while passing 21 and consistently looked to stretch the defense down the field. Initially, substandard execution and some clever blitzes held them in check but on the last drive they were equally as potent as they showed early versus the Ravens last week.

On that possession a wide receiver screen to Roddy White got them moving, highlighted by a superb downfield block by Tyson Clabo on Terrence Newman. A crossing route from Michael Palmer for 20 yards followed, with a Ryan fake to the left leaving both linebackers (Thomas Howard and Vontaze Burfict) miles out of position. After slot corner Jeromy Miles diagnosed a quick pass to Harry Douglas well, making a tackle for a loss it was time once more to get Julio Jones in the game. Firstly a slant featuring two missed tackles (Nate Clements and Reggie Nelson) and then a 30 yard go, dropping tantalizingly just out of reach.

Three completions finished things off; 16 to White with Newman looking lost, 23 to Jones on a post despite decent coverage from Clements and a short lob to a falling Lousaka Polite.

Through it all Ryan looked calm, in complete control and most of all very accurate in his execution. This could indeed be the year he moves his play to the next level.

2. A Hybrid Affair

Atlanta began in a traditional 3-4 defense, played the very next play with the same personnel but lined up in a 4-3 and rotated between the two thereafter.

In the 3-4, Peria Jerry played the nose with Ray Edwards and Jonathan Babineaux flanking him. Stephen Nicholas joined John Abraham standing up at the line with Sean Weatherspoon and Mike Peterson filling the inside linebacker roles.

In 4-3, both tackles played over the guards and Abraham put his hand in the ground; Peterson played the Mike (a role likely to be filled by Akeem Dent when he returns from injury).

Jerry generally made life difficult for Kyle Cook picking up a hurry and, towards the end of the first quarter, getting outside his block to tackle Brian Leonard for no gain.

Another player showing his skills was Abraham. Going against a fine tackle in Andrew Whitworth he blew past him to pressure Dalton after three plays earlier getting inside him to stop Cedric Peerman for no gain.

While it’s probable these two players will flourish (and there was also a few flashes from Edwards too) the linebackers may well take longer to acclimatize. Donald Lee left Nicholas for dead on a seam route and both he and Peterson looked slow to fill in the running game.



3. Three into two

The only thing about the corners that’s currently easy to define is what happens in nickel; here Dunta Robinson plays the slot, Brent Grimes plays RCB and Asante Samuel plays LCB. In base it’s in the air with all three players taking turns at the two roles. I’m not sure if this is just an open competition or the way that the Falcons intend to play once the real action starts.

The good news is, barring Samuel getting beaten badly by A.J. Green on the deep go route; all three played well, particularly Robinson. We’ve been notably harsh on Robinson over the last few years but this new role (and a little competition) may bring out the best in him. He was very aggressive closing down Andrew Hawkins and also defended a pass to Armon Binns with ease. Grimes was feisty as ever and until the Green debacle Samuel had been fine too, although one dubious tackle on Donald Lee showed certain things never change.

Quick thoughts:

The Falcons are definitely going for broke on becoming a pass-first offense. They're gonna come into Arrowhead looking to score early and often. Gonna be very, very interesting to see how we defend that.

Didn't even realize ATL has Grimes, Robinson and Samuel. That's a really nice set of corners. Robinson wasn't great last year, but if he's playing nickel now, it's different.

I think if they get on a tenge of passing plays it's going end up in Eric Berrys hands ;). DJ may get a pick too if they try feeding Tony G. too much I'm calling that one. So let them air it out, however, am worried about Julio Jones the most tho. That guy can make sick plays happen.

The Falcons' O is more worrisome than their D. And the best way to keep an offense from scoring is by keeping it off the field. Best tactic is a lot of Chiefs running and have Cassel play it very safe. Long drives, no turnovers, and TDs instead of FGs, keeping that Falcons' O drinking Gatorade on the bench.

hopefully the Charles/Hillis combo fixed that problem.

Let them play nickel all they want. They'll be forced to use an extra LB to defend the run. When they do that, we can go play-action. Their offense is definitely good, but if we can get pressure, the weapons won't matter.

The Falcons and the Saints have a great rivalry. Every game in the recent years went down to a wire. Are the Chiefs as good as the Saints? No. However, the Falcons, because of the Saints' passing attack, tends to be less emphasizing against the run. This may turn into the an advantage for the Chiefs. Charles will just run the ball down to their throat.

I just finished watching the the first half of the Bengal-Falcons game and the Falcons have definitely adopted a pass pass pass offensive philosophy.

Playing good man corner and jamming Jones and White at the line will be key and should force Ryan to take more time to go through his progressions. It looks like Ryan is being coached to get rid of the ball very quickly to cover up their mediocre OL.

If we keep them under 20 I'll be ecstatic but never underestimate the power of the 12th man.

I'm going to have to agree with tony here. What I've seen in both PS games for the Falcons' was Matt Ryan throwing, and Matt Ryan throwing right away. Tamba and Houston are going to have to get there fast to break up passes.

Clabo is solid on the right side. He's about a nickel less talent than Winston. Atlanta broke the bank, RT-wise, to resign him.

Sam Baker is a lower-half LT in this league, however.

Thanks for your input.

I kinda feel good about the matchups.

Hali vs Baker....me think advantage Chiefs

Houston vs Clabo....don't know? Gonna have to wait & see on that one.

*I bet they double up on Hali though. At least it'll take away a TE option in the passing game.

This game will be the real test for our interior, starting with Toribio.

I doubt the Falcons (or anybody) can run on our ends. But I think you can still run up the gut on us. Toribio did get beat a couple times along the interior against the Cards, so we're going to need a big game from Belcher and DJ, make sure they are in the right assignments.

The Falcons have two big backs they love using. My guess is they will try to establish that. If we can't effectively snuff it out, and our offense can't move the ball, they will force us to overreact to it.

Then Julio and Roddy go to work, and it's game over.

On offense, I'd say try to strike early very quickly. Bowe and Baldwin out wide, and force the D to either overreact to them and work McCluster and Breaston in short-yardage, or go for broke.

If that doesn't pay immediate dividends, I put the weight of our offense on the OL's shoulders and run ball down their fucking throat.

Pretty much agree with this. We need to get up early and control the clock and force them to be one dimensional. Let the crowd take over and get some false start penalties. I'm just worried Routt will be targeted and the 50 yard penalties he will cost us.

I expect Atlanta's D to improve with Nolan in town. Their o-line, especially the interior, is not good. In fact, it's bad. The biggest complaints from fans down here is that, and the non-existence of any pass rush.

The strangest thing about them is that they love the 3 yards and a cloud of artificial dust. Even though they have such a sick group of WR's, and such broke dick RB's...I personally think Atlanta is the most boring team in football to watch. And lucky me, I get to watch em all the time.

That's great news.

We already have the advantage in the run game at the tackles with Dorsey/Jackson.

We need to seal that middle, and Toribio may or may not be the man for that.

Good to hear ATL's interior is soft. Because they have the perfect backs for ball control.

Atlanta has a new OC, and they will be running a lot of 3 WR sets with a more aggressive pass offense...Turner will no longer be the focus - and, imo, he's slowing down, and can't break anything

I expect Ryan and Jones to have break-out seasons statistically.

I'm not impressed with their front 7, and don't think they can stop our running game. Conversely, I'd be surprised if they have much success running against us.

I think we're better on both lines, so which ever QB can hit his WRs for big plays will probably determine things. We really need Flowers on the field.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I'd like to add that while their OTs arent bad, Hali and Houston should be able to win enough matchups with them to hopefully rattle Ryan and make him force passes.

4 sacks and 175 yards rushing for KC wins the game.

This is the kind of game where having good blocking TEs can really help. Charles has the speed to get outside and Asante doesn't like to tackle. If the TEs can make their blocks and get Charles one-on-one with Samuel, Charles should be able to break a couple of those.

That gives us enough of a pass rush without leaving guys wide open all day (like sending 3 backers would) and would also give us a lot of versatility in coverages, too.

In fact, I almost EXPECT that personell group to get a lot of work not only against Atlanta, but against most teams we face with good qbs.

Just about every non biased grading website out there ranks Routt above Carr.

Let's give the kid a chance.

I know some here will get a good laugh at this, but whatever.

I went to a friends house to play madden a few days ago and looked Routts rating up and they were phenomenal.

One of the best corners in the whole game.

Take that for what it's worth (not very much)

What I would like to see:
Defensively: Man up on the outside with Flowers and Routt and leave Lewis over the top to help them out. Mix up blitzes with two of the three linebackers - Hali/Houston/DJ. If they add a tight end to block Hali, blitz with Berry. Hit Matt Ryan early and often.

Offensively: Open the game with a play-action deep pass to Baldwin down the sideline. Use the run game to both sides of the field to control the clock, keep the defense fresh and use play action to keep the safeties honest.

Just about every non biased grading website out there ranks Routt above Carr.

Let's give the kid a chance.

I know some here will get a good laugh at this, but whatever.

I went to a friends house to play madden a few days ago and looked Routts rating up and they were phenomenal.

One of the best corners in the whole game.

Take that for what it's worth (not very much)

but Carr was our own, i think he should have been kept around.

anyone have those stats?

All Raiders get a lot of penalties...it's why they always lead the league in them.

I don't expect Routt to stop getting flagged, but I expect our coaching staff and the color of his jersey to drastically impact how much he is flagged.

I hope I'm right.

The key will be pressuring Ryan the whole game. Hali & Houston have to bring it.

This. Lucky for us their o-line seems to be in shambles right now. Let them pass it all they want. They more third and longs they are in the more hits Ryan will take.

Eric Berry bud. Eric Berry.

Use 6 DBs and have him at linebacker level and line him up over the TE.

*I would also like to think the TE option will be taken away because I don't see the Falcons lining up Baker against Hali straight. That will be a mismatch.
It wouldn't surprise me if they double team against Hali by using a TE. Jmo

i agree, Roddy's a lot like Bowe with better hands.

I may be wrong, but I think that White's drop percentage was higher than Bowe's.

I also think the receivers that have QBs that can get them the ball in time are guys that should have "better hands".

I firmly believe that a big reason for Bowe's drops is how often he has to wait for the pass.

Wouldn't the other Raider CBs have gotten a lot of penalties if this were the case?

Routt had 17 (!) penalties last year, the next highest Raider CB had 4.

If the Chiefs plan on staying in this game and not repeating what happened last opening day, they need to blitz to get to the QB.

In order to blitz, they need Flowers to be healthy and the secondary needs to play well.

God help us if Flowers can't play week1. Matt Ryan may have 350+ yds passing, meanwhile our QB in no way shape or form would be able to keep up w/ that.

I sent the local Atlanta Sports show I listen to my top 10 reasons the Chiefs will beat the Falcons this morning. LMAO Mybe they will use it? Here they are.

Top 10 Reasons the Chiefs will beat the Falcons

10. Kansas City is much deeper than Atlanta. There is a former NFL starter backing up almost every position of injury or suspension on the roster. Guys like Siler (MLB), Elam (S), Daniels (CB), and Studebaker (OLB) have started and been around for a while. Remember, this team was a blocked field goal in overtime against Oakland from winning the AFC West. This despite losing Cassel, Moeaki, Charles, and Berry for the year.

9. KC is the youngest team in the NFL. They have no player over 30 years old. These guys are young, fast, and physical. When guys like Abraham, McClure and Clabo get tired, the Chiefs will not.

8. Kansas City's Offensive Line will dominate the Falcons defensive line. With the addition of Eric Winston, I think KC will have the best offensive line in the NFL. The line is upgraded from the 2010 offensive line that led the league in rushing. Also, four years ago, Albert kept Abraham in check at the Georgia Dome. It was MacIntosh, the right tackle that was taken to school. The last time Atlanta went to Kansas City, they were dominated by the Chiefs offensive line. The (5-1) Falcons came to Arrowhead to face the (1-4) Chiefs and were routed 56-10. KC rushed for 271 yards and 8 TDs. Let's see if history repeats itself.

7. The Chiefs will target the Falcons Safeties. The Falcons safeties are going to have problems matching up against KC's tight ends and slot receivers. Moeaki and Boss are both very good players. Breaston and McCluster are both very quick players with speed. Look for Decoud and Moore to be in trouble.

6. Sam Baker will struggle in Arrowhead. The crowd noise will be off the charts and Baker will not be able to hear a thing. He will be target #1 for KC's pass rush. If Tamba Hali were playing, it would be much worse. However, I think it will still be a rough day in the office for Baker. Note that Romeo Crennel played Tamba at ROLB throughout the preseason and never once eluded to who his replacement would be. Studebaker is a competent pass rusher and Sheffield has finally recovered from injury and has had a good raining camp. Justin Houston is ready to go and finished last year strong. He could start on the right side instead of the left.The Chiefs also run crazy 3-3-5 and 2-3-6 defenses that cause confusion as well. Make no mistake, there are plans to come after Sam Baker.

5. The Chiefs have their superstars back. Getting Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry is huge for KC. Charles is the best player on KC's offense. He is really the spark that makes the whole thing go. Berry is the best player on our defense and is the leader back there. His game is great all around and he makes the run defense 50% better. He closes in on running backs like a torpedo from the strong safety position. He also lines up on slot receivers at times and allows KC to remain in the 3-4 defense on third down. They are both really special talents and we missed them dearly last season.

4. The Falcons defense is soft. That's right, I said it. These guys are in trouble if they think they are going to line up in the nickel all day in Kansas City. The defense has quite a bit of speed but is missing a true thumper and there isn't an ounce of nastiness to be found. Missed tackles will get you killed against that Chiefs offense.

3. Romeo Crennel is one of the smartest men in football. Todd Haley ran this team into the ground over the last few years. His only success came when Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator. He wouldn't taylor the playbook to the players skill set and tried to force his methods on the players. Romeo is the opposite and quickly corrected Haley's shortcomings after he was fired. This team finished the year (2-1) beating the Broncos and Packers. Again, the barely lost to Oakland and almost won the West. Last year, Romeo laid out the template on how to beat Tebow's offense and Aaron Rodgers. In years past, he gave Peyton Manning fits by constantly beating him in the mind war. The Colts only made it over the hump in the playoffs after Romeo Crennel left New England. Crennel will find ways to confuse Matt Ryan. The heat will be coming from everywhere as I think Romeo knows the only way to defend Atlant's passing game is by sending the house.

2. The Chiefs running game will be off the charts. The Chiefs are built to run the ball. It's no secret. With the signings of Winston, Hillis, and Boss the Chiefs plan to live and die by the running game. Either the Falcons will be chasing Charles, or bouncing off of Hillis. The Chiefs are carrying four tight ends and five runningbacks on the active roster. KC's strategy will be to control the clock and keep Atlanta's super offense off the field. Atlanta will not be able to stop them.

1. The game is at Arrowhead Stadium. If this game were in the Georgia Dome, the Falcons would be a lock to win. Unfortunately for Falcons fans, it is not. Arrowhead is the toughest place to play in the NFL. When the Chiefs score, the entire stadium chants "we're gonna beat the hell outta you" to the Dr. Who song. Arrowhead can be windy and has a grassy playing field. The fans are louder than any other fans in the country. The only venue that compares is maybe LSU's stadium in Baton Rouge at night. Ryan will have never experienced anything like this. This will make the Falcon's recent season openers against Pittsburgh and Chicago seem like a cake walk. Ryan and Smith are (0-2) on opening day in those tough road enviornments. The stadium will be rocking as it is opening day and most fans feel this is the best Chief's team from top to bottom since 1997. Last, the Falcons have never won a game in Arrowhead in the history of the organization.

Chiefs win a close one 23-20.

Atlanta is 22-3 when Turner runs for over 100 yards. Slowing down "leadfoot" and making them one dimensional (which has been thier problems in road games) is the key defensively. They can throw for yards all they want, but if he Orton's it up in the redzone and they slow down Turner they have a very good shot.

I think this game comes down to Poe.

Because Matt Ryan isn't a very mobile QB, his best way of avoiding pressure is stepping up in the pocket. If Poe/Powe can stop Turner and get pressure up the middle, then this offense is absolutely beatable. If not, get ready for a loooooong day.

Fucking bullshit. If we had Tamba, I'd be so confident right now. Amazing what a difference that one player makes.

I expect the Chiefs to play behind in most of this game. I'm hoping, after a pretty long wait, for something to happen on special teams. Good field position is going to matter in this one, especially in a play from behind game. If we win it, we won't put it away early, it'll be frustrating. So I'm hoping we can hang in there until mid-3rd quarter and then through decent field position, we get a couple big plays from Baldwin and the running game and eek it out at the end.

The Falcons were 8th in passing.

Cassel isn't close to Ryan.

Okay.

We have to slow down their run game, like been said already, and make them one dimensional and hope we can slow down their pass game.

Run the ball, work the middle of the field, let Bowe and Baldwin use their height in the redzone.

Gonna be a tough game, someone is gonna have to have a stud performance.

@DannyParkins the less McCluster the better. Falcons want to get 3 CB's on the field. I make them keep Akeem Dent on field over Samuel.

Certainly not the end of the world, but our front schedule looks pretty intense.. need to get the home games.

Id feel a lot better about the game if Houston was gonna be playing rolb, but I do think we have a better chance of winning the opener than some think.

It's all gonna depend on what team comes out flat and who plays energized.

We NEED an early score or 3 and out (on defense) to get the crowd rockin...that's for sure.

We should just forfeit the game. I mean fuck it, everyone has us so pegged for being a suck team why not just sit out this season? I listened to the guys in 610 today do nothing but whine and cry about the injuries and they made Atalanta out to be some monstrosity that we could never hope to beat. I mean people went from "wthout Flowers..." to "Flowers hasn't practiced" to Belcher, DJ, no Hali, I mean the excuses were just flying every which way on why we couldn't win this game.

One of them finally came to the realization that we have 2 bad ass RB's and some good WR's but would still lose though he gave us a chance. The other guy was just basically making out Atlanata to be some perennial SB team that was just not going to be stopped.

Why would you say that? It's the NFL you can get trounced by a team and bounce back the next meeting. It isn't college ball. If the team is scared of the fucking Bills, just end the got damned season already or as a fan don't bother to watch.

That game is the lock of the year. That's a payback game. There are more reasons we will beat the Bills than the falcons.

I expect Crennel to severely limit their passing attack and our running game to eat clock. FG wins it.

I think we gotta get pressure on Ryan. They have four competent targets for Ryan. If we can't get pressure on him he will pick us apart. I agree about running th ball.

I also agree with those talking about stopping Turner. We need to do that. I guess I kind of take it for granted. I have a ton of confidence in our run defense with Berry back. He's makes us at least 25% better against the run.

Starting Poe all three downs scares me. I have high hopes for the guy, but think it will take time.

Still good enough to beat us, especially at home.

It certainly won't be a cake walk, and they very well may kick our ass, but people who act like we should just make down an L, are just losers IMO, and probably were picked last a lot back when they could actually still run 30 feet without throwing up.

It's a road game against a decent team.

I'm not sure we have ever beaten a decent team on the road with Cassel.

The Seahawks maybe...7-9...decent?

I'd give Buffalo a 60 percent chance of winning.
