  1. I think this game is winnable at home!

  2. Dukeshire says:

    I think so as well. Their D has been poor. Great opportunity for Lynch to bust out.

  3. Agreed, I’m hoping to see a lot of pressure put on that Falcons O-Line and force.Matt Ryan into a few misplaced passes. Like it was mentioned earlier, Seattle will probably need points on defense to keep an advantage. Earl Thomas pick-six perhaps?

  4. I’d be happy at 2-2 1/4 way through the season. Wow, how time flies!

  5. jarred767 says:

    Going into the season this looked like a really tough game, but those stats next to each other show that it could be a winnable one. Their offense is better than our (but whose isn’t) and our defense is better than than theirs. Should be close, if our offense can do anything credible, then I believe we really have a chance.

    Hey guys,
    Did you watch the monday nite game..??
    How about josh wilson..??
    What was PC/S Thinking..

  7. Jackson 18/31 171 yards. Just 2 of those attempts to the left side. Both in the second half. The first, Tate leaped up on an overthrow and brought it in for 6 yards. The other, an overthrow of Rice on 3rd down with tight coverage. Baldwin was open on the right for the first down.

    There were 4 attempts to the short middle and 21 short right. Only 4 deep pass attempts. The first was complete to Rice for 32 yards deep right sideline. The next on 3rd and 18 was thrown deep right out of bounds. Again on 3rd and 20 a pass deep right in the end zone to Rice swatted away. Had it been in the corner Rice may have made the catch. Last play of the half TJ threw up a Hail Marry INT down the middle…. All second half attempts were short passes. 2-L, 3-M, 10-R. 9/15

    AZ line backer Adrian Wilson dropped an easy INT on the Hawks first possession. Corner back Jefferson nearly made a play on a poorly thrown second down pass just before half. It was Jefferson that swatted the ball away from Rice on the next play in the end zone. A quality corner would have converted one of those poorly thrown balls into an INT.

    Jackson was 2/7 to the running backs. Both completions came from inside the red zone on the second possession. The first to Lynch for 2 yards. A play later to Forsett for 1 yard. Of the 5 incompletes one was to Lynch as Dockett sacked him. Jackson just dropped the ball pathetically. Not sure what you call that. He wasn’t outside the hash but wasn’t penalized.

    The defense overall was very good. Actually looked great in the second half playing with the lead. Hawks have a chance next week if the defense continues the effort. Atlanta put up 38 in a win at Qwest a year ago. No doubt, this offense won’t keep up with that.

  8. None of the ‘experts’ (ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox, etc) picked SEA to beat AZ, and they probably figure SEA won’t be competitive vs ATL either. ATL lost @ CHI 12-30, beat PHI at the Georgia Dome 35-31, and then lost @ TB 13-16. Sports commentators are still expecting ATL to compete for the NFCS.

    ATL’s offense hasn’t been that great either. Their OL from last season is still a little messed up because of losing H.Dahl to the Rams and C T.McClure was inactive-injured weeks 1 & 2, so M.Turner hasn’t been getting his yards like last season. Last week Turner only got 11 carries as ATL has been pass-happy.

    Not sure what’s wrong with their LT Sam Baker, but he’s given up 3 sacks, 5 QB hits, and 13 QB pressures in 3 games. Dahl’s RG replacement Garrett Reynolds has given up 2 sacks, 3 hits and 2 pressures, and RT T.Clabo has given up 2 sacks, 1 hit and 7 pressures. LG Justin Blalok has gotten 2 penalties and has allowed a sack and 8 QB pressures. McClure’s backup, Hawley, had gotten 3 penalties and gave up a sack, a hit and a pressure in 2 games. Last Sunday, McClure gave up 3 pressures on Matt Ryan.

    Julio Jones hasn’t gotten as involved in their offense as expected yet, which has been mostly been M.Ryan, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. Michael Turner has rushed for 234 yds in 3 games, mostly to the right B, C & D gaps. I’m thinking SEA’s run-D can pretty much handle Turner and Jacquizz Rogers.

    Maybe SEA can win this game if their DL pass-rush can get to Ryan with more pressure than they’ve shown so far. Especially with pressure from just the front 4. When blitzed, Ryan’s C% is 66.7% and QB rtg is 111.8 (so far this season). When not blitzed, Ryan’s C% is 58.7% and QB rtg is 71.6. Ryan’s targetted R.White 35 times who caught 20 of them (1 for TD), dropped 3, and was intercepted once. Julio Jones has been targetted 21 times, caught 13, dropped 1, and was picked once. ATL’s other WR was Harry Douglas who’s been targetted 13 times, and caught 9. Tony G has been targetted 22 times and caught 14 (3 for TDs), and was picked twice. Gonzalez doesn’t drop passes.

    In ATL’s loss to CHI, Ryan was sacked 4 times, hit while throwing 6 times and otherwise chased around the backfield twice. In ATL’s loss at TB, Ryan was sacked 3 times, hit twice and pressured 18 times. In ATL’s home win vs PHI, Ryan was sacked 4 times, hit twice and pressured 16 times. The amount of pressure was more than at TB, but at home, vs PHI, Ryan completed 6 of 11 for 85 yds one TD and a pick while under pressure, and at TB Ryan was 7 of 17 for 61 yds and no TDs/picks while under pressure. Even though PHI has DRC, Asante Samuel and Nnamdi Asomugha at the corners, Ryan toasted PHI’s LBs Casey Matthews, Moise Fokou & Jamar Chaney in the middle. SEA’s corners aren’t as good as PHI’s, but neither are their LBs as weak in coverage.

    Nice work Klm008….

    This is also the longest possible road trip the falcons can make so hopefully that will be a factor to a team not used to traveling long distances for road games.
    Cleveland and Pittsburgh were the longest road trips they made last year and that is nothing compared to the trip to southern siberia.
    Think about it. this is a team who’s longest divisional trip is TB and that is about the same as Seattle’s shortest possible road game in S.F.
    Falcons could take a bus to play the Panthers and the Saints and still have a shorter travel time than 90% of the road trips the hawks have to make.

  11. If the Seahawks do everything they did against the Cardinals, plus get BMW the ball a half-dozen times, they will beat Atlanta.

    D eliminates rushing game
    D and ST create poor field position for opponent.
    Pass early to Rice until he draws coverage, then spread the ball around.
    Pass early to set up the run, then run hard.
    Rely on TJack’s toughness to take hits and run when needed.
    Demoralize the opponent with dominating D and vicious hits

    Its not the most exciting brand of football, but its tough to beat a team like this on their home field.
