Atlanta head coach Mike Smith was blunt in his assessment of where his team sits heading into Sunday’s contest with Seattle, with the Falcons at a surprising 1-2.
“We’re not playing very consistent football right now,” Smith said. “And I would say it’s probably most noticeable on our offense, but really as a football team we have not played consistent football in the first three weeks – offensively, defensively and special teams.
“I’ll give you an example. All of last year we had seven penalties on special teams, and through three games we’ve got seven penalties. And we’re doing some very uncharacteristic things across the board.”
