OK, let's talk Falcons.

This is a serious thread. Not trolling.

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

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...ngals-falcons/

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.

that'll be a good gameplan as long as they convert third downs.
the last couple years the Chiefs have been terrible at it.
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.

No one in their secondary is a really good run stopper. If Charles or Hillis get to the second level, it could get ugly for them.

i agree.
but that secondary would be one of the best in the league vs the pass.

So were the Chiefs. They were scary good against the pass the 2nd half of the year last year including in that games against Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Big Ben (before someone mentions Tebow)

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.
