Wow! I would've thought that Matt Ryan had an awful year based on the Falcons record. That's a heck of a season.

 

Their defense took a HUGE step back this year... Deion Jones and a depleted secondary can do that to a team.

Matt also had to throw more than he wanted because the running game fell apart towards the end of the season except for spurts, and he was always trailing mostly.

 

Dan Quinn calling the defense is what is best for them, IMO. I expect Adam Gase to go there as OC eventually. He would be the perfect guy to maximize that offense for them.

I think that Adam Gase would be a good fit with Matt Ryan.

Nobody's forgotten what he did with Peyton and even Jay Cutler..

 

They were 7-9...and they gained over 6,200 yards..almost 400 a game

I still think he's gonna be a HC again teams know he was stuck with crap at the QB position

Defensive heavy draft for them I’d assume. Their offense is elite with a top QB, 3 good WRs in Jones, Sanu and Ridley, Hooper at TE and Freeman and Coleman at RB. 

Vic Beasley only had 5 sacks on the year which is awful from such a good pass rusher.

    • Thoughts on drafting a WR in the 1st round:   1. The most recent stat regarding T.Y. missing games and our inability to win in those games (0-7 in games T.Y. has missed) has highlighted the importance of the WR position.   2. Without T.Y. (our only deep threat) the opposing teams have stacked the box and played close to the LOS, taking away our short passing game and our run game.  (I am aware that JB is also to blame for the short passing game).   3. Opposing teams have stacked the boxes and have sent more blitzes, causing more difficulties for out O-lineman. We've had to keep our RBs and TE's in to help out with the blitz pick-ups, taking them out of our passing game too.   4. Without T.Y., it's been difficult to get first downs consistently, because we do not have another WR that can get open fast enough, and on a consistent basis, with reliable hands. This has put a lot of pressure on the offense, and in-turn, the defense has been on the field more.   I know that many people will say that building the trenches is more important. I agree, especially on defense. But, we have seen the negative impact of not having a player like T.Y. in the lineup has had on the offense, including the O-line. They appear to not be able to run block or pass block because of how teams can play against us without a true deep threat, or reliable pass-catcher.
    • I think Parris will be great if he stays healthy next year. But Mclaurin was nfl ready and he could of helped immediately. It’s hard to know if Parris hadn’t had the hamstring in camp and had started the season on good footing what might of happened. We will find out soon if Funchess was the wrong signing. He never got a chance.
    • "Get a grip of all of the doom and gloom". I don't know how you make an honest assessment of where this team is and not think "oh god, I hope we don't turn into a Titans-esq squad". It's great that they can sort of run and sort of stop the run, but that's not winning anything meaningful now or in the future.  Going from Super Bowl potential, to waiting out a 7-9 to 9-7 type season- at least for people who'd like to see the Colts win another Super Bowl, isn't awesome.
